Oyayi Farewell Party and Superbook Season 3 Launch

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We now say goodbye for now to the cast of Oyayi as they end their first season this Sunday, January 29, 2017 but hopefully we get to see them again for the second season as "Kuya Maki" played by Frederico "Icko" Gonzalez reveals during the event that talks are already ongoing for the continuing shows. Also, it was highly assured during their grand launch last year that the organizers of the show, along with their partners, will be working hard for another season so that the value-enriched Oyayi will again educate our children every Sunday morning. For me, I would want to see the show for many more seasons since our children deserve quality shows like these that would help mold them to be better citizens.

Along with Kuya Maki, the team leader of "Pangkat Oyayi," during the farewell event for Oyayi were two other characters namely Bon Haribon (inspired by the Haring Ibon or Monkey-Eating Eagle) and Tama Raw (inspired by the Tamaraw) but we were missing Kuwago Zhibago (played by Ruther Urquia), a robotic owl, and his three sidekicks, the Tornilyons (shaped as nuts and bolts), also Tele Bobby (the character with a television head), plus the other three hand puppets Diva Butanding, Dok Pil and Tarsiera, inspired by indigenous endangered species such as butanding (whale shark), pilandok (mouse deer), and the tarsier.

However, as what you have read on our title, the event was also the launch of the third season of Superbook, the Bible-based animation that I grew up with during my formative years. This is the new version of the animation as it now uses 3D CGI unlike the previous 2D animation from its original run. The cartoon was also run in Tagalog dubbed for both versions to make it more engaging for Filipinos. I generally like the show in whatever language it is presented, but we really shouldn't worry since the children nowadays are fast learners and more adaptive even with English as the means of conversation. It also helps to create familiarity with the English language so that our children will be more competitive in international opportunities. But we don't really need to argue as both languages have their own respective benefits.

As expected, the lovable and cute Gizmo mascot was there to entertain the children with his dance-along with the official Superbook soundtrack "The Salvation Poem." The children were actively participating in the sing and dance portion just as how they did during the Oyayi soundtrack dance, and very engaged as well with the many games that were held that day giving the children some prizes like stickers and notebooks.

Nearing the end of the event, the children also had their chance for photo ops with the mentioned characters, and even the adults like us did not miss on the opportunity to have a selfie with them. We help promote the shows because of its noble intention to enrich children with good values that are less seen in other children's shows like animations (may it be a cartoon, anime or live show) that incorporates violent scenes like sensitive images, horrific actions and harsh words, that will definitely badly influence children.

Kudos to Ivy Catucod for her very energetic hosting of the event. She handled the whole event with ease and if you didn't notice, she was also part of one of the shows as she was seen in an episode of Oyayi during the PSX Dance Battle segment. Another superstar in the making?

More power to CBN Asia for both Oyayi and Superbook. We hope to see more of these shows on a regular basis.
