Many Filipinos’ childhood memories include Superbook. Originally shown in the 1980s as “Superbook Classic,” a new and improved version of the Bible cartoon series, “Superbook Reimagined” premiered in 2013.
The kids’ favorite TV show featured Chris and Joy on their Bible adventures. They were able to better understand the stories of the Bible, thanks to these figures! But Gizmo, the adorable and humorous robot pal of Chris and Joy, was one of the characters who truly resonated with the young audience.
Because of this, the children were overjoyed and excited when Gizmo made a trip to Canlubang, Laguna last June 16-17, 2022, for Gizmo on the Go!
Gizmo on the Go is an event where Gizmo goes to different places to bring fun and exciting games and activities to kids and, most importantly, to tell them about Jesus.
The 12-year-old Mara Oruga is one of the kids who felt very excited to meet the Superbook team.
When Mara was younger, she started watching Superbook with her family.
“We turn on the TV early in the morning to watch Superbook. We learn valuable life lessons and Bible stories,” she shared.
Mara and her friends from Canlubang, Laguna, enjoyed showing off their skills, playing Gizmo’s Lab, and watching the Superbook episode, “Joseph and the Pharaoh’s Dream.”
She said, “Like Joseph, I have learned to be gracious and forgiving.”
She especially liked the part where Joseph forgave his brothers, “Even though Joseph was made a high-level official, he didn’t use his position to get back at his brothers.”
After learning about the Bible, it was finally time for their long-awaited meeting with Gizmo!
When the kids saw their favorite robot friend, they cheered loudly!
Gizmo invited the kids to dance “The Salvation Poem,” and they were encouraged to pray and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
That day, more than 100 kids decided to follow God. They went home happy and holding a lootbag filled with Superbook goodies. Truly a dream come true for all the certified Batang Superbook!
Where will Gizmo go next?
