Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the cultures and customs of India and set in the fictional land of Jalpur, MIRA, ROYAL DETECTIVE is a half-hour animated mystery-adventure series for preschoolers that follows the brave and resourceful Mira, a commoner who is appointed to the role of royal detective by the Queen. Along with her friend Prince Neel, a talented inventor, creative cousin Priya, and comical mongoose sidekicks Mikku and Chikku, Mira will stop at nothing to solve a case. Each episode features two 11-minute music- and dance-filled stories which showcase Mira utilizing critical thinking and deductive reasoning to help her family, friends and extended community. Whether it's tracking down the culprit who stole the Queen's crown or clearing the name of a falsely accused chicken, Mira believes that every case is important, no matter how big or small. She loves solving puzzles and has a gift for observation, which allows her to see situations from different perspectives.

Rooted in India's vibrant heritage, each episode weaves the country's culture and customs into the storytelling. Shagorika Ghosh Perkins from IW Group serves as the series' cultural consultant and consulting producer, weighing in on everything from costumes, music, food, and set design to specific holiday traditions and festivals. Reflecting their importance in Indian culture, music and dance play an integral role in the series. Each episode features at least one original song and Mira's signature recurring song, "We're on the Case." Both the songs and the underscore pair a variety of South Asian musical styles, including Bollywood, pop, classical, folk, fusion and more, with a classic Disney feel that will resonate with viewers of all ages around the world. The dance numbers also showcase the diversity of the culture, highlighting both northern and southern Indian styles, as well as big Bollywood routines.

In the season opener, "The Case of the Cunning Chameleon; The Great Polo," Mira shows Mikku and Chikku how to use their senses to find a missing chameleon; when the mallets break at the polo match, Mira goes on the case to figure out what happened.

In the special Eid al-Fitr episode, titled "The Eid Mystery," Mira's friend Sadia asks for her help in solving the case when they find a lost holiday eidi gift envelope on the ground.
