Pupung Goes Solo | Solo Features Pinoy Cartoonist Tonton Young’s Pupung

When Solo featured Kenkoy last year, I was secretly hoping that “My Little Pupung” will be next. Talk about getting what you wish for. My Little Pupung was once a daily comic strip in Manila Bulletin created by Filipino Cartoonist Washington Young a.k.a. Tonton Young. While my folks got their daily dose of general information through the broadsheet, I immersed myself in the Pupung’s world that revolves around the crazy adventures in his family and their “lugawan” (rice congee place). And of course, the characters that spelled fun in my childhood: Pupung, his folks, his great grandfather “Lelong,” Dom (Pupung’s grandfather), Day or Inday (their helper and Pupung’s nanny), Jordan (the midget working as one of their staff) and Larry Bird, the crazy parrot.

There is just no way I’m missing out on a shirt or two from Solo featuring Tonton Young’s Pupung. And yes, one of them will be this white all over print tee. I can’t wait to try this  one on, let alone read through the whole comic strip! I’m one giddy little girl brought back to my childhood. 😀
