SUPER INGGO AT ANG SUPER TROPA - The Super Inggo series returns as an animated series

source: Philippine Entertainment Portal

Okay, I admit I have not watched an episode of Super Inggo. But I can only comment that despite many criticisms saying this show is a rip-off of "Sky High" or Harry Potter series, I can still see some effort of originality on this series. It also seems obvious that its cast are a young force not to be reckoned with. Well, the show may look like its over but it will actually return as an animated series.

Super Inggo at ang Super Tropa is the first collaborative project between ABS-CBN TV Production, represented by business unit head and Vice President for TV Production Enrico Santos, and the newly formed ABS-CBN Animation Department, led by business unit head Guia Jose.

Guia was part of the creative team of Optifex International, then working on projects such as the Flinstones, the Jetsons, Yogi's Treasure Hunt, the Snorks and many others. She trained at the Hanna-Barbera Studios in Burbank in 1987, and Tokyo Movie Shinsha in Tokyo in 1985 and 1986. She has worked with various reputable animation companies like TMS Philippines as head of operations, Optifex International as head of color key and mark up, Asianimation as production manager, PASI as Animation Checker and Star Animation (RNI) as managing director.
"Everything that the public loved in Super Inggo—the drama, adventure, fun—will still be here," says business unit head Enrico Santos. "But in a new, more dynamic enviroment."

This weekly anime series is a product of numerous months of hard work and dedication from around 100 people. It usually takes 18 weeks for one episode to be completed and the show is a 30-minute per episode, weekly.

The show also takes pride as one of the most successful synergized projects of ABS-CBN having its own, among others, mobile interactive games, international sales, records, and licensed products. Super Inggo at ang Super Tropa will air soon on ABS-CBN. [read full story here]
