Ethelbert the Tiger is a children's animated TV Show. In each episode, Ethelbert, a friendly but naïve Indian tiger cub asks his wise human friend Dilip (voiced by Bhasker Patel) question, often regarding morals, ethics or behaviour. The pair then set off on Dilip's raft through a magic waterfall which transports them to another part of the world. They invariably meet a new animal friend who can help answer the question and give Ethelbert a different perspective on life.

The programme's visual style is very colourful, not unlike silk painting or batik.

Episodes[edit]

Trivia[edit]

Ethelbert is depicted (unusually for a tiger) as a vegetarian, with a particular fondness for watermelon.
