Hello. Please explain the plurality of ano-ano. To my mind, the examples given would work fine with a single ano, but clearly that is wrong.

Anu-ano is more of an "intensified" version of ano.
 
Kung anu-ano ang ginagawa niya! Usually, when you hear this, the person is pissed versus "Kung ano ang ginawa niya".
 
The same with "Ang ganda-ganda niya" versus "Ang ganda niya".

@stevesmi
Ano-ano is also a “plural what”, which we don’t have in English...
 
So, you’ll notice the examples in th dictionary listing are all in reference to multiple/several/plural things.
 
Ex:
Anu-anó ang mga kulay ng bahágharì? = What are the colors of the rainbow?
(colors = plural)
