Children in late 80s and early 90s used to swear by them, as they were the ‘real heroes’. Were you one of those kids who couldn’t separate themselves from the magical world of Chacha Chaudhary or Billoo? If you are one of those who grew up reading Tin Tin, Superman, or our desi Pinki and Nagraj, this is for you - a trip down the memory lane:
Chacha Chaudhary and Sabu
Remember ‘Chacha Choudhary ka dimag computer se bhi tez chalta hai’? Short height, red turban and a walking stick, this man had answers to all the problems and for rest, he had giant Jupiter man Sabu.
This chirpy bubbly girl had a knack of inviting trouble for others. Always accompanied by her pet squirrel Kut-Kut, Pinki charmed us all with her colourful Knee length frocks, broad headbands and wit. And it certainly created a buzz amongst little girls in 90s.
Remember the naughty, daring and inquisitive Indian boy. We loved his carefree attitude and a simple lifestyle; remember the fringes falling over his forehead, always covering his eyes? Did you ever notice his eyes?
Voluptuous and traditional Channi Chachi, a typical Indian aunt, who everyone loves to hate and hates to love.
Longest-running Indian action comic superhero Nagraj was our answer to Spiderman. Remember if Spidey could shoot web, Nagraj can swing from one place to another shooting snakes from his wrist. He was the ultimate superhero of most 90s kids
Super Commando Dhruva
Perfect combination of good looks and intelligence, school girls use to drool over this desi fighter, and ahem! Didn’t boys feel jealous? The most unique thing about Dhruva was that, unlike most of our superheroes, he didn't hide his identity behind a mask.
Resembling a bulldog, Doga had no special powers except being able to communicate with dogs who helped him gain information as he traveled through the sewers of Mumbai. We still remember his extraordinarily high level of pain tolerance.
