Info[edit | edit source]

Just like Sesame Street and its precursor Sesame, the show is aimed at children and educates them. The show is iconic due to the characters Pong Pagong and Kiko Matsing which were both inspired by a Filipino fable "The Monkey and the Turtle."

Sesame, its precursor, was a co-production between the Philippine Children's Television Foundation (PCTF) and the Children's Television Workshop (CTW) with the support of the Philippine government at that time. It is a bilingual program, having two languages: Filipino and English.[2] The support of the government ended after the assassination of Benigno Aquino, Jr. and the deal with CTW was cancelled. The show ran from 1983 to 1984.

A year later, PCTF decided to produce its own show named Batibot. It was done entirely in Filipino and characters Pong Pagong and Kiko Matsing are in the show due to the deal with CTW, until the 1990s. It is aired every weekday at 10:30 AM.[3] It is consistently ranked as among the top 10 daytime shows in the Philippines.

The show was aired on several networks throughout the years, and in 1999 it was relaunched as Batang Batibot. The show ended in 2003.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Several scenes of the show are available online, however, full episodes are nowhere to be seen. The intros and several scenes were uploaded from the late 2000s. Both Batibot and Sesame doesn't have full episodes yet on the internet.
