Hi-5 (Philippines TV series)

Hi-5 Fiesta was an Latin America children's television program. It's a fourth adaptation of Hi-5 series, whose original version (Australian) was created by Helena Harris and Posie Graeme-Evans. It's the second version doesn't have the English language, but in Spanish. This is produced by Telefe and the Nuba Producciones in a co-production between Argentina and Mexico, which is displayed from December 21, 2014. This version is directed by Adriano Schmid and Michela Giorelli and produced two seasons between 2014 and 2016 with a total of 50 episodes in a format similar to the Hi-5 House (but not have The Chatterbox segment).


The program remains similar to the format of the original, providing children with education through music, fun and movement. Hi-5 Fiesta caters to a wide range of children's learning styles, displayed through a classic segments within the program. Each show is built around a simple theme like colours, music, animals, or numbers.

This version is a cut remake based on Hi-5 Australian Original Series 8, 9 and 10. To try to differentiate from the Original Series, the scripts and songs (although re-arranged and changing choreographies) were edited in a short time.

  • This version doesn't have an end in the same way as the other versions of the series (in this version, the episode it is closed with the second musical score to which the final credits have been moved).
  • In this version, the Chatterbox puppet was renamed Charlafina (the Spanish version). In the first season, she was blonde and her hair was composed of auburn braids and was widely criticized on social networks. The season 2, Chats was recreated if looking more like the original version.
