“I’ve been drawing cartoons since I learned how to hold a pencil,” says Tonton Young. When Tonton Young was born into this world, he was probably laughing instead of crying. Now on its 3rd installment, the most-loved series takes Tonton Young’s Pupung and puts in on His&Hers graphic tees, popular varsity jackets, polo shirts, woven tops and dresses, men’s long sleeves and shorts and adorable accessories. The collection hits the stores this August!
How do you best remember Pupung? It could be his family’s lugawan and their hilarious adventures that reflects the typical Pinoy family. Pupung is a lovable kid in the comics created by Tonton Young in 1983. The strip revolves around the family of Pupung and their hilarious adventures. The comics strip focuses on Philippine pop culture, fascination with basketball as well as business trends and rarely tackles political issues. Pupung became popular for its punchlines and the humor used in the strip is lighter than other Filipino comic strips which gives it a family-oriented theme. Up to this day, Pupung appears in Manila Bulletin and continues to make Pinoys laugh everyday. Pupung and all your fave characters from the strip, Mommy, Daddy, Lolo Dom, Day, Jordan, Lelong and LarryBird will be immortalized in a pop collection!
