The Cable Show
The Mokan Nokan Show is a half-hour show broadcasting five times a week on cable station SPECTRUM OC16, which is seen throughout Hawaii.
The show is all about inspiration. Mokan and Nokan need inspiration to survive, so in each episode they seek out people and stories that inspire them and share those stories with their viewers. Mokan and Nokan also love dancing, singing, creating, and motivating people who are doing interesting things in their communities and around the world.
Other regular characters include Mr. Mel, the curator of Gallery 103, who is the main source of the uplifting stories and events that keep Mokan and Nokan — and the audience — inspired.
In addition, during each episode children anchor the news desk, which keeps everyone up to date with news and views from Hawaii and the far reaches of the globe.
The Mokan Nokan Show is an experience the entire family can sit down and enjoy together that we hope will also inspire them to get out and become involved in their local and global communities.
