Goin' Bulilit (lit. Goin' Kids) is a sketch comedy show broadcast on and created by ABS-CBN in the Philippines. It is aired every Sunday after TV Patrol Weekend and before Pinoy Boyband Superstar. [1] It is a gag show featuring children in various comedic situations.[2]

The show's aim is to provide laughter towards the audience by showcasing gags, sketches, and segments. The cast is composed of child actors, excluding Dagul, who portrays different roles ranging from young to old characters every week to bring entertainment.[3]

At the end of 2005, Goin Bulilit immediately received an award from the PMPC Star Awards for TV for "Best Gag Show", tied with Bubble Gang.[4] Soon after, the show received multiple awards and nominations among variety of award-giving bodies such as the KBP Golden Dove Awards and the Gawad TANGLAW. In addition, not only is the show being recognized, but also to the casts. In fact, the PMPC Star Awards for TV had nominated Sharlene San Pedro for "Best Comedy Actress" two times consecutively, as well as single nominations for Harvey Bautista, Aaliyah Belmoro, and Ashley Sarmiento for "Best New Male/Female TV Personality" category.

Though its cast is almost entirely kids, Goin' Bulilit creator Edgar "Bobot" Mortiz admitted that the show is not for kids.[5] He added that the ABS-CBN wanted a gag show that can compete with Bubble Gang of rival GMA Network, but as the network have not enough suitable actors for the planned program, he thought up of having one with kids instead.

Goin' Bulilit marked its 10th anniversary last February 1, 2015


The weekly show provides different segments such as "Palarong Pambata" (Kiddie games), "Use in a Sentence" and "Sino Daw" (one liner jokes), as well as parodies of some top-rating shows including Rated KKK (Rated K), The Buzz, and Lovers in Pares (Lovers in Paris).[4][6]

Production and crew

The show was created by Edgar Mortiz, who co-directed with his son, Frasco Mortiz. The show is a spin-off of 80's comedy sitcom Goin' Bananas starring Christopher de Leon, Edgar Mortiz, Jay Ilagan, and Johnny Delgado.[6] Roderick Victoria served as the Creative Manager. The creative/writing team was led by headwriter Sherwin Buenvenida and included writers Rolf Mahilom, Josel Garlitos, Toffie Runas, Yani Yuzon and Badjie Mortiz.[4]
