Synopsis: Mighty Little Bheem is about a curious child with extraordinary strength. There's always something fresh to captivate Bheem's interest and motivate his wanderings, whether it's a honey-lured bee or a wind-tossed flower. His physical strength gets him in and out of trouble.
Mighty Little Bheem is Netflix's first Indian animated series and revolves around a younger version of Chhota Bheem. Among the many things that may be perplexing to young viewers is Bheem's incredible strength, which enables him to move enormous creatures and ascend steep trees. Aside from lions, who see him as prey, Bheem is unafraid of any risk, even the antics of a larger, older playmate. Though the show promotes some cultural understanding it normalises violence, disobedience and does not send many positives messages. It also promotes stereotypes of the mother always in the kitchen with no father figure present.
Mighty Little Bheem is a children's TV series that follows the exploits of a little boy named Bheem, who is a toddler with an insatiable curiosity and the strength of a superhuman. There is always something fresh to captivate Bheem's interest and motivate his wanderings, whether it is a bee that entices him with honey to follow her or a flower that is thrown about by the wind that he is anxious to collect. Bheem's wanderings are a result of both of these things. By using his considerable physical strength, he avoids and gets into several scrapes along the road.
How good is it?
The absence of significant content in Bheem's adventures is more than compensated for by the adventures' high visual appeal and overall entertainment value. The absence of words in this program allows for the characters to interact in a way that is both emotive and visually appealing, making this show a delight to watch. Because it takes place in India, viewers are presented with many aspects of Indian culture, such as traditional methods of clothing, traditional festivities, music, and forms of transportation. This helps to enhance young people's knowledge of other cultures. Mighty Little Bheem is pleasant enough to look at but jaded in its approach. Though it is packed with amusement that may be a little perplexing at times, it is filled with acts of violence that may not be suitable for young kids.
