At Cartoon Network’s ‘Masti ki Recess’, schools became more fun for students through an extra break; a new concept wherein Cartoon Network combined the magic of its shows and characters such as Ben 10, Kris from Roll No 21, Oggy from Oggy and Cockroaches and We Bare Bears, with light-hearted fun and interactive games. The additional break was a highlight in the daily routine of the school children!
