John en Marsha (English: John and Marsha) was a Philippine television sitcom that aired on the Radio Philippines Network (RPN) from May 1973 to July 30, 1990. Created by Adíng Fernando, the series starred Dolphy, Nida Blanca, Rolly Quizon, Dely Atay-Atayan and Maricel Soriano.
A spin-off from the series, John en Shirley, aired on ABS-CBN in 2006 with Dolphy and Maricel Soriano reprising their roles from the original series.
Marsha Jones marries the impoverished John Puruntong, much to the dismay of her wealthy mother, Doña Delilah. The latter often pays a visit to their house along with her serving-maid Matutina. When money was needed, she would tell Matutina to go sweep peso bills off the floor.
Despite this, John rejects all the financial assistance Doña Delilah offers his family, resulting in a hilarious exchange of insults between the two. The show usually ends with Doña Delilah screaming her catchphrase "Kaya ikaw, John, magsumikap ka!" ("Therefore, John, you must work hard!") to insult John's capability as the father of the household. They end up making amends, giving each other abrupt hugs with Doña Delilah exclaiming "Peace, man!"
