Goin' Bulilit... not cute!


I have been watching this program for almost a year now, and it really appeals to me... though it should have been meant for kids, a comedy show for kids that is. Last Sunday, what caught my attention was a joke that a child cracked, wherein she will be giving garbage as a gift to the garbage collector, since they always ask for some "aginaldo" from residents every Christmas. And that was it... that was the punchline! Thinking again, I felt insulted, not that because I do not want to be a recipient of such dirty trash, but, by the way these kids make fun of the garbage collectors' occupation.

This antic is definitely not the works of a kid, but the grownups who write and manage the program. This is not the first time that such offensive jokes have been thrown against certain sectors of society. I'm not sure about this but I think there were some episodes of the program where the kids play deaf, mute or blind, with the handicapped being the subject of laughter.

The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board chairperson even guested in that program it its latest episode, with a little girl interviewing her, jokingly asking questions on which TV scenes are acceptable and which are not. Of course, that was part of the script. Though nothing has been found obscene or violent in the program, the chairperson should have noted some offensive antics that the show present to the public. This program is intended for adults, and children should not be allowed to watch. Even a late night program for adults should not be excused from presenting offensive jokes toward people who have less in life, how much more Goin' Bulilit which is being sold to the kids?

And besides, why are these large group of child actors on TV? Shouldn't they be in school?

also you have to be a filipino to like this show its not personal but you really need to be a filipino to like this show.

These kids work with adults to like the director the righter the creator and the camera people.

and the goin bulilit does not tell offensive jokes they trying to make peoples jobs to be fun do you know that.

Yes. Nice joke

the Philippines allows kids to do the school day off if there actors. even if they have to do a 2 year movie.

you are soo not very right about the show.

here's an example:

the goin bulilits are dressed as poor people. there trying to make the poor people happy if they wish they were rich.

that's what the sneak peak of the bulilit comercials when goin bulilit started.

Yes. Nice joke

(For Kim).what kind of comment was that? are you even literate? well...judging by your comments, you obviously dont know have even an ounce of decency...
i do agree with you dexter. the directors and writers of this program should try to exercise some restraint on the type and quality of jokes that they're trying to pass on these kinds.
