Batibot Soars High with Exciting Second Season on TV5

The iconic children’s show Batibot soars higher as TV5 Kids and Philippine Children’s Television Foundation, Inc. (PCTVF) present a whole new exciting season starting this May 7. Loads of fun and learning await kids as Kuya Fidel (Abner Delina) and Ate Maya (Kakki Teodoro) bring in the freshest and the most interactive Batibot along with muppets Kapitan Basa, Manang Bola, Ning Ning, Ging Ging, and Koko Kwik-kwak.

Batibot fans across generations have a lot more to expect this season as the show offers more fun-filled segments in addition to its signature activities, such as story-telling, live action films and interactive games. There will be thematic episodes featuring “How children lived”, bringing kids on a wonderful journey in time where they will learn history in ways that are relevant to them. They will enjoy the how-to segments which present step-by-step instructions on creating and doing things. On top of having more celebrity guests, Batibot’s young viewers can also look forward to seeing a new and adorable muppet they will surely love.

With TV5’s popularity among children, as proven by the strong TV5 Kids block, Batibot made a successful comeback last year. The show was able to stir the nostalgia for the well-loved Filipino children’s program and at the same time attract young audiences to watch an educational and fun show that’s particularly made for them.

“We at TV5 felt it was high time for today’s children to have a share of the Batibot experience their parents enjoyed during their youth. We’re very happy with the show’s successful comeback. For something as intrinsic to Pinoy culture as Batibot, it deserves to continue its worthwhile advocacy of teaching good values to our children in the most entertaining way,” shared TV5 Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Roberto V. Barreiro.

According to Teacher Feny delos Angeles-Bautista, Philippine Children’s Television Foundation Executive Director and Batibot Executive Producer, introducing Batibot to a new generation of Filipino children has been worth all the effort. “The summative research we conducted with children in both public and private schools and their active engagement during the live performances in schools, parks and even at the PGH Cancer Ward reaffirmed our expectation that kids would welcome Batibot and make it a part of their lives,” Bautista added.

Batibot begins its second season on TV5 on May 7. The show airs every Saturday at 8:30am with 3-5 minute shorts on weekdays at 9:00am and 2:55pm.
