Karusel TV or Karusel International, also known by its transliterated Russian name Karusel, is a Russian television channel for children and youth. It was founded by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

It is currently available in Russia, in France via Free and in the United States via DirecTV.[1]

Shows[change | change source]

Carousel programming consists of a wide range of shows ranging from original animated and live-action Russian productions to famous cartoons from around the world. All of them are either dubbed or voiceover-translated into the Russian language. The schedule changes on an almost weekly basis.

History[change | change source]

Carousel was created in 2010 after Bibigon (Бибигон) and TeleNanny (ТелеНяня) merged to form the new channel. The first program shown was "Team Jump-Jump" (Прыг-Скок Команда)
