Ang Naudlot na Pagbabalik ni PONG PAGONG...


BATIBOT,
after an almost twenty year hiatus,
will return to TV screens soon on TV5.




BUT,

no thanks to unresolved licensing issues
between the U.S. Children's Television Workshop,
the owners of Sesame Street and the owners of the rights
to the most popular muppets, Pong Pagong and Kiko Matsing,

the Pinoy counterparts of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch
will not be returning as part of the Kapatid's reborn Batibot.

Hope springs eternal though. I hope they get Arnold Clavio to sub!







Deep Dark Secret:

I appeared in one episode of Batibot:
as an ardent suitor who was wooing Ate Siena!

I remember that she was kind of ignoring my wooing,
so I had to find a "bridge" to help me get close to her.

That's right... our cupid was none other than Pong Pagong!!!
