Batibot is Back!



The New Batibot!

Pagmulat ng mata,
Langit nakatawa
Sa batibot,
Sa batibot
Tayo nang magpunta
Tuklasin sa batibot
Ang tuwa, ang saya

Doon sa batibot
Tayo na, tayo na
Mga bata sa batibot
Maliksi, masigla. (2x)

If you are a batang batibot, you surely miss the song, right? Anyway, how well do you remember Batibot? Here are some random terms that will help you go back to your childhood...
  • Pong Pagong (Siyempre naman!)
  • Kiko Matsing (with matching hoarse voice)
  • Manang Bola (Perlas na bilog, wag tutulog-tulog... Sabihin sa'kin ang sagot... Ba, Be-Bi, Bo-Bu...)
  • Ging-Ging (Ang kuleett!)
  • Irma Daldal (Ang daldal!)
  • Kapitan Bassaaaa!
  • Ate Sienna at Kuya Bodjie
  • Sitsiritsit and Alibangbang (Read it again in a robotic way!)
Let's sing again...
Alin? Alin?
Alin ang naiba?
Isipin kung alin ang naiba?
Isiping mabuti Isipin kung alin
Isipin kung alin ang naiba?

Alin? Alin?
Alin ang naiba?
Isipin kung alin ang naiba?
Sabihin, sabihin
Sabihin kung alin
Sabihin kung alin ang naiba?

Why am I writing about Batibot? It's because they're back! Not all of them though because as you may all know Pong Pagong and Kiko Matsing are owned by the Sesame. I am not sure if you were aware that GMA did revive it. However, since it had to pay much for Pong and Kiko, it replaced the two muppets with Koko Kwik Kwak. Then, they disappeared again. I think that was year 2000.

Just this week I saw Batibot again in the news... It made me smile.
I just wonder if it will be back for good. Will kids-of-today be able to appreciate a show which baby-sit us? Values education will surely be very challenging. How good is this new Batibot visual-wise? Can it compete with the computer games, with FB applications?

The above questions will be answered in the coming days. I just wish TV5 good luck in this one because it has chosen something for kids. If we can't stop kids from watching TV, at least, we can provide them with something educational.
Ang saya-saya... makulay!

Actually, I don't really feel like writing now. I wanna sing. Let's just sing again!

Ako ay kapitbahay
Kapitbahay n'yo
Laging handang tumulong sa inyo.

Kilala n'yo ako
Kilala n'yo ako
Ako'y isa sa kapitbahay
Kapitbahay ninyo!

Ako ay kapitbahay
Laging handang
Laging handang
Tumulong sa inyo

Kilala n'yo ako
Kilala n'yo ako
Ako'y isa sa kapitbahay
Kapitbahay ninyo!
