Asian Grandparents on Jakers

Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks, is the animated show about Piggley Winks, an anthropomorphic Irish pig who shares stories of his childhood in Ireland with his American grandchildren.

At the end of each episode is a segment called "Meet the Grandparents" in which real-life human children talk with their own grandparents about their childhood experiences...

From the episode "Dannan's American Cousin" is a Filipino granddad, or Lolo, as we would call him:


From the episode "Wish Upon a Story" is this Chinese grandma, with her grandson. I know, I know, the kid obviously doesn't look Chinese. That's probably because he is one of many white kids adopted into Asian families. ;)
