The King of Comedy rises again this Easter Sunday as TV5 delivers the weekly fantasy and comedy series Pidol's Wonderland,a collection of wonderful stories for the whole family as told by no other than Dolphy himself as the very funny and endearing Mang Pidol.
Pidol's Wonderland dramatizes, adapts and retells well-loved folk tales and legends, as well as original tall tales and fantasy stories that are perfect for kids as well as for the whole family.
A curio shop owner in downtown Manila, Mang Pidol brings in the comedy together with his sons Bart (played by Vandolph Quizon) and Panyong (Epi Quizon), his daughter-in-law Jenny, and his granddaughter Baby VJ.
The curio shop is where Mang Pidol's animated storytelling sessions are attended by a motley group of common folk in the neighborhood—the barbers Samson (played by Brod Pete) and Adonis (Long Mejia), the bakery owner Brigit (Joy Viado) and her assistant Lyla (Arianna Barouk).
MONKEY BOY. In the pilot episode this Sunday, Mang Pidol tells the story of Totoy (Jay Aquitania)—a shy boy whose monkey-like features keep him distant from people, except from Pilar (Meg Imperial), his only friend. Totoy's father tells him that the only way he can turn his appearance into human form is if he can find a girl whose kiss can transform him. Will Totoy find the right girl, or will he forever be trapped in his simian physique?
Find out on Easter Sunday, April 4, as Dolphy treats his viewers to a weekly dose of humor, light drama, adventure, romance and fantasy on Pidol's Wonderland, at 6:30 p.m. on TV5.
