Cafeteria Aroma. . . yes! Off the wall, bizarre and incredibly funny. Brother Manok, Johnson, Miniong at syempre si Uncle Apeng!


Excellent Bro!! I Love Cafeteria Aroma and was certainly in a league of its own. I remember dropping everything by 10 am just to watch this show. The comedy was truly situational, not slapstick and Apeng Daldal's (God bless his soul) comic timing was impeccable.

And talk about lists, here's mine:

1. Cafeteria Aroma
2. Iskul Bukol
3. John en Marsha
4. Fantastic Jean Young in Motion (remember this campy over the hill musicale-sitcom?)
5. Baltic & Company
6. Eh Kasi Babae
7. T.O.D.A.S.
8. Going Bananas
9. Buddy en Sol (Redford White was the Heart & Soul of this sitcom)

EH KASE BABAE ba yung sina Gloria Diaz, Debbie Miller and another chick?  Grabe, those were the hotties while we were still in shorts!   ;D

     Better late than never....

         Yup, it's them. Bessie is really a stunner at that time.

Bring back ABANGAN ANG SUSUNOD NA KABANATA. Joey Reyes' script is so witty and funny. Who can forget the TENGCO Family comprise of Cong. Tengco, his wife Barbara and Dino? There's Benny also and Nanette Inventor's sofa that has plastic that was never removed!

                 They did once sometime (ABANGAN ANG SUSUNOD is the exact title if I recall) and ended up with missed witticism and satire. Joey failed to rekindle what luster the sitcom once has. :( Possibly one reason is because not ALL those colorful characters has returned.

                 I remember one fictional band featured in the show that was parodied from the then popular ERASERHEADS, it was called PENCILBRAINS! ;D

       Are you referring to PTL (which means Praise The Lord) which I think airs early afternoon? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

       I remember O, SIGE. This is more of a gag show but has some sitcom-ish approach which I prefer over TVJ that also airs on Channel 13. I believe Lauren Dyogi (of PBB) is one of the unknown cast then.

       There's also this PUGAD BABOY headed by Edgar Mortiz. It's a short-lived bland sitcom of a popular pinoy comic strip.

hmm... i don't think that's the title. i think there's a santa or a maria (?) in there. seems to be inspired by a saint yata.

           Oh men... Wrong guess. :( I already forgot that show (STA. ZITA AT SI MARY ROSE) until it regained into my consciousness. Thanks indie boi. :)

I think so. Only thing I know about it is that it's actually a remake. The original series was aired in the early 70s.

What was shown back-to-back with Duplex?

Also, did anyone watch Prinsipe Abante?

Finally, thanks for mentioning Baltic and Co.

again, i'm amazed at the number of cafeteria aroma afficionados here. seems to be one of the more popular sitcoms here in pdvd.  ;D surprising since apeng seems to be what u might term now as jologs or in those days eh bakya. (pero you have to give the man props for his wits nga. tindi ng mga one liners nya and yung saluhan nila ni minyong ng punchlines.) i also used to watch this in my cousin's 20" b/w tv... pero ang ganda ng tv na  ito, super linaw.  :D

Cafeteria Aroma is a cult classic. :)

Prinsipe Abante was Bert Marcelo, am I right? I remember that being funny. Mr. Baltic played the King there, I remember, Tina Revilla was the princess and the late Inday Badiday's late husband(?) whose name escapes me at the moment played Abante's nemesis, I think. There was also a toothless guard named Clint or Cliff.

God, I feel old. ;D

Panalo 'to! Aside from the sofa plastic, I remember her character calling Laser Discs as Laser Dicks!

They also cleverly spoofed the home video of the Webb family practicing their golf swings. Anjo, Noel and Joji discussing something completely unrelated to golf but swinging away. Classic! Any of you guys remember the actress/model who played the family lawyer?

you cannot help not watch prinsipe abante because it followed the daimos, voltes v, mazinger z animated series back in the day.

Di ko na maalala the one who played the family lawyer. But Tessie Tomas was hilarious as Barbara Tengco. Nova Villa always slipped on the sofa of Nanette Inventor.  ;D

I even watched the movie version at the theatres.

So that was why I was watching it!

Take a look at this!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqCc2zbfyX0

I think there was a radio show decades earlier entitled "Prinsipe Amante" together with movies and comic books featuring the same character.

i actually mentioned it na in the previous pages. it was quite a departure for joey from his usual wacky self in his other sitcoms. medyo tamed siya rito and a bit more serious.

one other sitcom that we viewed regularly was "prrt... foul" nina jawo, arnaiz and pilita corrales. to think that at that time eh hate na hate ko si jawo as a basketball player/coach.  :D

Sama din sa Prrrt. . . Foul! si Yoyong Martirez. I think the woman who played their mother was Laila(?)Dizon,mother of Christopher De Leon, not Pilita.

There was also a sitcom called Kontrapelo with Dang Cecilio, Jay Ilagan and Dindo Fernando . . or has that been mentioned already?

Then there was It's A Deal starring Alma Moreno and Michael De Mesa which which beat Will & Grace by at least ten years.

Little story about It's A Deal. The sitcom was supposed to originally star Ronaldo Valdez. The role and the sitcom was supposedly tailor made for him as a way of cashing in on his sudden popularity as a gay man in those Zialcita Lamok and Daga movies (I think he also had another gay movie opposite Dindo Fernando -- one of those Mahinhin movies that Zialcita also directed). He refused though citing that the was afraid to be typecast as a gay character. The role was then given to Michael de Mesa instead. Ronaldo Valdez would appear in one of the future episodes of the sitcom though, I just can't remember if he played a closeted gay man.
