Ang Panday is a Filipino franchise derived from a comic character "Panday" created by Carlo J. Caparas. Throughout the years, several movies and series were made, and an animated TV series based on the comics/movie was created in 1986.


It is dubbed to be "first Filipino Animated Series in Television" and directed by Gabby A. Garcia.[1] It was broadcasted in RPN 9 every Friday 8 pm[2] and Fernando Poe, Jr. and other characters reprised their roles in this series. It was said to be first aired on November 21, 1986, and although it was really popular with Filipinos, it only lasted six months due to the high cost of making an animated series.[3] It is also said that Fernando Poe Jr. would read every fans' name every episode.


So far, no full episodes have resurfaced. The promo aired on RPN 9 was uploaded by Jojo Bailon in August 2017 on Facebook (reuploaded by Accipiter Smith) while the intro was uploaded by OPM MTV VIDEO in March 2016. There are also episodes remembered by viewers.
