Hungama, meaning ‘commotion’ or ‘excitement’, is an Indian children’s TV channel which shows primarily the Japanese children’s cartoon shows Doraemon and Shin Chan, alongside some local Indian productions.

It was originally launched by UTV Software Communications, which was later acquired by The Walt Disney Company India and also runs Disney Channel, Marvel HQ (formerly Disney XD) and Disney Junior in the kids’ genre.
