Anyone remembers those educational TV shows like Epol Apple where Kuya Bodjie, formerly of Batibot, becomes Porfirio who talks to and teaches children in alternating Filipino and English? Or Bayani where the ABS-CBN talents portray the different Filipino heroes in shows like mini-series? What about Math-Tinik where there children learn about Math concepts through playing? Hiraya Manawari where Filipino values are being taught?

I remember one time we were at a McDonald’s outlet and there was this little boy who kept on looking at the nearby table. He wanted to go to that particular table and curious me, I had to just look. There was Kuya Bodjie, on that nearby table and the little boy, a fan of Epol Apple was able to recognize him. Talk about being able to see someone you just watch on TV in person, sitting next to you. The boy was very happy to see him. I remember too my niece (my late cousin’s daughter) who told me that they watch these TV shows IN SCHOOL, depending on the schedule. If the Math Tinik show is for Intermediate level, they watch, but if its for Primary level, the younger ones watch.

These are wonderful shows imparting great values as well as educational concepts being taught. So where have these TV shows are now?

    I like Batibot too. Tapos pati yung cartoons dati na Flying House and Superbook, which are about the Old and New Testaments… dapat ipalabas ulit yun. Puro kasi anime na walang kabuluhan ang pinalalabas ngayon…

    So True, Lisaflor. I think meron pa yung Flying House or Superbook, parang nakita ko sa QTV though I am not sure. Sad thing too, Rene O. Villanueva died already, he was one of the moving forces behind Batibot and has written a lot of books. Me blog din siya sa Blogspot. Thanks for the visit, Lisa. My apologies for not being able to follow through our talk about you know what it is. :)

    Hi, Liza, just got from replying to your other message. I’m ok, except a little “tuliro” with so many things that needs to get done. Thanks for thinking about me. Sobra. Take care too :)
