Oki Doki Doc revolves around the adventures and misadventures in the life of Dr. Agaton Villaluz or simply Doc Aga, a young veterinarian who has inherited his brother's children. Aga was leading a normal single life and was quite enjoying his bachelorhood when his brother-in-law lost his job. Because of this unfortunate situation, his brother-in-law is forced to take on a job abroad which required him to bring his wife along with him leaving their children behind. Being the only relative who has a respectable status, Aga is entrusted with the responsibility of taking care of his sister's two children, Camille (Camille Prats) and Fonzie (Alfonso Martinez) which cuts short his life as a bachelor and catapults him into the status of being a parent/guardian to his niece and nephew.

Dr. Aga opened his animal clinic in a middle-class subdivision with plans of having a successful career as a veterinarian. He lives with his best friend and college classmate who he also treat as family, Godo in the duplex that is in a compound owned by Don Berto Makunatan a.k.a. Babsy (Babalu). His duplex unit doubles up as his vet office while the other unit is used by Babsy and his three children, Paolo, Alex (Agot Isidro) and Toni (Claudine Barretto). Mang Berto has an inherent hatred over Godo and dislikes Aga for his daughter Alex. Mang Berto can't stop the two from falling in love and eventually (in the series run) got married. As call of endearment Alex calls Aga "sugar", while Aga calls Alex "cupcake".

Oki Doki Doc Show Intro Lyrics

Ang Tito Aga kong beterinaryo,
laging kapiling mga pusa’t aso
kung minsan ay loro
kung minsan ay kuwago
Meron ding baka, manok, at kabayo… Ang tito ko!

Oki Doc, Oki Doc
Oki Doki Doki Doc
Oki Doc, Oki Doc, Oki Doc

Ang Tito Aga kong beterinaryo,
napakagwapo nakakaloko-loko
Kay dami daming chicks na nagkakagusto
pati na yata mga pusa't aso ng tito ko

Oki Doc, Oki Doc
Oki Doki Doki Doc
Oki Doc, Oki Doc, Oki Doc

Sweet Moments of Doc Aga (Aga Muhlach) and Alex (Agot Isidro) in ABS-CBN's Oki Doki Doc

ABS-CBN got tons of great situational comedy under its management during the 90's. While Home Along Da Riles focuses more on the family man Kevin Cosme, Oki Doki Doc is not far behind but instead of a dedicated father, we now have a dedicated uncle and bachelor. The introduction of love story between Aga and Alex in the show added more charm and humor to the series. ABS CBN's Oki Doki Doc was one of those popular 90's ABS CBN situational comedy that I grew up watching. It spun one comedy film with the same title in 1996. The ABS CBN sitcom's 1993 to December 2000 has followed the love story of Aga and Alex; and has seen a lot of changes from both its cast, schedule, and humor.

The most notable characters to me was the late-Babalu as the overprotective father and Roderick Paulate's gay (stereotype) portrayal in the series length. As a child growing up in the 90's I liked how Oki Doki Doc had these various brief animations that served as interlude featuring animals (since Doc Aga is a vet) cutting to the commercials, and from commercials back to the show.
