Sino dito ay lumaki sa Superbook at Flying House?!?!?! SINO?!!? Umamin kayo!!! Magtapat ka, magtapat kaaaaaa! Hahaha! I’m sure most of you are probably blushing while reading this—too shy to expose your age I see! Well, I’m a proud child of the 80s-90s. The decade of Giordano Classics, Ice Skating in Megamall, and of course—SUPERBOOK & FLYING HOUSE!!! I was even a member of their Kiddie Club! I waited 3 whole months to get my “membership card” (typewritten and laminated—oooohhh! LEGIT!) in the mail. As a child I was really hooked on these two cartoon series..and looking back, I guess I really picked up a lot of life lessons through these entertaining, educational and encouraging TV series. That’s why we were all so mellow in the 90s! It’s because we were exposed to HAPPY TV back then For my younger blog readers, here’s a little info about Superbook…
CBN’s animation series, Superbook, was born out of a vision that Pat Robertson and the leadership of CBN had for Japan in 1979. The project was largely centered around CBN’s desire to promote the Bible to the Japanese public in partnership with Word of Life Press and Ken Taylor of Living Bibles International.
Initially, Superbook was only contemplated as a television series for Japan. The animation characters were characteristically Japanese and CBN had no plans of using the series elsewhere. After the series was dubbed into English, CBN decided to broadcast Superbook in 1983 over the CBN Cable Network in the U.S., which accessed 10 million households at the time.
Since 1983, the Superbook animation series has been dubbed into over 40 languages and broadcasted in well over 80 countries and has impacted the lives of thousands of people throughout the world. Superbook’s success has gone way beyond the scope of what CBN had originally hoped for it and it continues to touch lives on broadcasts throughout the world today.– Text from Superbook Website
Last Saturday, my in laws invited us to the GRAND LAUNCH of the new and improved Superbook in Manila! The same Superbook we all loved in the 80-90s, is now digitally animated for the new generation. My inner batang Superbook was totally psyched about this event—I really begged Patrick to clear our Saturday schedule just for this!!! We got to watch a classic Superbook episode (which gave me goosebumps!!!) and we were also treated to a sneak peek of the “REIMAGINED SUPERBOOK”. Kinikilig ako para sa mga batang Superbook ng bagong henerasyon! Napakaganda ng pagkagawa ng bagong Superbook series! This will be shown nationwide on GMA 7 next year, so be sure to check out the Superbook website for updates.
