Batibot: The Morning Ritual

February 10, 2007 at 10:30 pm 15 comments

Who would forget the show Batibot?! Back then, my day would not be complete without being able to watch the show. It reminds you of Sesame Street, pero at the same time, its has something that’s entirely different…something Pinoy. It helps the child learn more than just the usual ABC and 123, but also the values of Filipino culture. This show helped the 90s kid become who they are now! Di ba?! Talaga naman this show made a huge impact on your childhood (or you can deny to death if you want). Aminin!


Here’s the theme song:



Pagmulat ng mata,
Langit nakatawa
Sa batibot,
Sa batibot

Tayo nang magpunta
Tuklasin sa batibot
Ang tuwa, ang saya

Doon sa batibot
Tayo na, tayo na

Mga bata sa batibot
Maliksi, masigla. (2X)

Dali, sundan natin
Ang ngiti ng araw
Doon sa batibot (2X)

Tayo nang magpunta
Tuklasin sa batibot
Ang tuwa, ang saya

Doon sa batibot
Tayo na, tayo na
Mga bata sa batibot
Maliksi, masigla. (2X)

(Contest tayo, padamihan ng characters!)

    Si Ginoo nga ang boses ng Kiko Matsing.

    Ask any UA&P EM student about Ginoo – they’ll point you to Mr. Talegon.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
