Hi-5 Philippines is the Filipino version of the Australian children's edu-tainment series of the same title as the first franchise in Asia. Hi-5 Philippines had its first broadcast on TV5 on June 15, 2015, and aired every Monday to Friday morning. Hi-5 Philippines was televised exclusively on the said network until the show made its final episode in its 2nd season on April 29, 2016. From May 2016, it was aired as re-runs of its second season, and was reduced to just the first 2 segments from January 9 to September 2, 2017.

Introduction[edit]

Launched in Australia in 1999, Hi-5 rapidly grew in popularity over the years. It has won three Logie Awards for Most Outstanding Children's Program, five ARIA Awards for Best Children's Album and five Australian DVD and Video Industry Awards, among other achievements. It was then that Hi-5 started expanding its reach by franchising the show across North America, Europe, Australasia, Latin America, and Asia. However, this is the first time that the Hi-5 franchise assembled an entirely new cast for the localization of the show in Asia. The Filipino version of the musical group is currently one of the only two casts for Hi-5, the other one being the Australian cast.
