For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela

Cute kid

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: she lived in an orphanage and if I’m not mistaken, she’s looking for her parents. Like any ‘novela, the main story disappeared by the end: the kid was put aside as her parents’ love story took centerstage.

Have you guessed the title yet? Let us know…for kicks.

The Gwapings!

I instantly felt that pang of pity for them because they’re not as famous anymore. And to paraphrase what Jomari Yllana said in the vid, they’re no longer recognized by the teens of today. So sad. But at least Direk Johnny still knows them.

The Tick

One of the amusing superheroes of the 90s was The Tick. I used to watch it on RPN 9 with my brother (who introduced me to the show), we’d always laugh at this superhero’s antics and depth (yes! he talks about stuff that are somewhat not what you get from the typical superhero). The show was great because it was something different from all the spiderman/woman, batman and superman cartoons proliferating the tv stations back then. In case you guys kinda have no idea what I’m talking about (nooooooo!) or have forgotten who this guy is, watch the video! Its hilarious!

Arthur!

ARTHUR

Ok, hold your horses people! I’m pretty sure you know who Arthur is (i.e. if you have cable and all – i channel). This was one of my favorite shows because it just tells you what a kid goes through during his childhood. Fighting with your siblings (and getting along with them!), having friends, fitting in school, raising parents (hehe!), and just dealing with whatever kids deal with! In the show all of the characters were animals, can u guys identify what types of animals were there (without using Google ah!)?

Well, that’s kinda hard. Since I wouldn’t know either. Hehe. But I really loved this show. 🙂

Kuya Germs

 

left_german_moreno1.jpgGerman Moreno or “Kuya Germs” was THE MAN during the late 80’s and most of the 90’s because of his influence in the showbiz industry and his ability to make striving artists to big stars. This guy was the first man to sport the “bling bling” fashion here in the Philippines! (sorry hip-hoppers! LOL), his necklace and rings dwarfed 50 cent’s blingbling. If you are a big fan of KG, you can still watch him every saturday midnight in his show, “Walang Tulugan”.

5andUp

5up.jpgThis was the show that made my Saturday mornings substantial and interesting. I was able to learn a lot of things that were helpful, not only to the school/academic stuff, but they made the idea of learning cool (probably one of the reasons why I became a nerd. Haha). They featured places, people and new stuff in a manner that was really relate-able to kids, since their anchors were kids. Hmm. I even know a few people who only watch 5andUp because of a certain cutie. Hehe.

Anyhoo, if you wanna get updates on the show and its members, you can find then at this site: http://www.probeprod.com/5andup/about. You can even be a contributor to their site and add articles, that is if they approve of your membership. But if you were and Upper or an Uppie you can easily be a part of the site. 🙂

    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 […]
