The American-Belgian animated comedy Smurfs will stage live shows at The Gate Mall on the first floor from the 15-20 October 2013, show timings are scheduled at 5.30 pm, 7 pm and 9 pm. Following closely, the award winning cartoon series Ben 10 will perform separately in the same month from 22-27 October 2013 at 5.30 pm, 7:30 pm and 9 pm.

The Smurfs were originally introduced as a series of characters by a comic artist; which then later evolved into a television franchise that was centered on a group of small blue fictional cartoons. The series aims to positively impact children by incorporating good values and morals into each episode. Furthermore, the second performance Ben 10 is a popular cartoon network show that entertains children by entwining multiple stories with a science fiction concept.

Commenting on the shows, Isabella Ibrahim, Marketing & PR representative of the Gate Mall said:

Based on the successful turnout of the Barney and Friends show during last Ramadan, we are thrilled at the opportunity of collaborating with QTA in order to bring two of the most well liked shows in the cartoon industry to Qatar. The programme acts out two diverse storyboards, unraveling them in a colorful and creative way that gives both parents and kids an experience to remember.’
