Do you still remember Batibot, the local counterpart of Sesame Street in the 80’s?
Yes, Batibot will be back on local TV through Channel 5 Kapatid Network!
The popular TV show was conceptualized to teach pre-school kids and older kids Filipino values such as saying “po” and “opo” and “pagmamano”. The show doesn’t only teach kids how to read and count, but familiarize kids with our local culture and heritage.
I know kids of today’s generation are not familiar with the popular children show back then. But your mommy and daddy do. Ask them about Pong Pagong and Kiko Matsing and they’ll probably have a lot of wonderful things to say about these cute and bubbly characters that gave joy to millions of Pinoy kids in the era where Internet is not yet a household name.
I’m sure the new Batibot will offer a new and exciting show using state-of-the-art technology and a lot more to adapt to young viewers’ interest.
I heard the new season will not include my favorite characters Pong Pagong and Kiko Matsing, but the there will be Manang Bola and the other lovable muppets to entertain kids.
My kids are bigger now to enjoy the show, but my preschool niece and nephews will surely love Batibot!
