Videos: Why you may not know of India's third-largest YouTube channel

It’s so big that, theoretically, each person in India could have watched its videos at least three times.

It has close to six billion views. Over six million subscribers. Yet, very few adults who aren’t parents might have heard of ChuChu TV Nursery Rhymes, a YouTube channel with an office in Chennai that writes nursery rhymes and makes animated videos set to them. It’s that simple.

And it’s India’s third largest YouTube channel, with earnings estimated by Social Blade to be between $ 728,000 and 11.7 million. Based on PewDiePie, the most popular YouTube channel in the world with 46 million subscribers (estimated earnings: between $930,000 and $15 million; reported income: around $12 million), a safe guess for ChuChu TV would be somewhere at the halfway point (a lot of revenue is lost because of ad blockers or by people skipping the ads).

    It started simply enough. Vinoth Chandar wanted to amuse his two-and-a-half-year-old daughter Harshita, affectionately nicknamed ChuChu. That is how the Chennai-based techie made an animation character based on her. It sang nursery rhymes and songs, and his daughter loved them; but so did thousands of kids from around the world when he uploaded a couple of videos on the Web in 2013.
