Does ‘Goin’ Bulilit’ director feel any resentment towards ABS-CBN?

After 14 years, Goin’ Bulilit, one of the longest-running kiddie gag shows of ABS-CBN, aired its final episode last Sunday, August 4.

Many television viewers saddened by the show’s cancellation. Some didn’t want the award-winning program to end for it was their habit to watch Goin’ Bulilit every Sunday.

Frasco Mortiz, the director of Goin’ Bulilit, thanked the Kapamilya viewers who supported the show from the start until the end. He also highlighted the milestones of his directorial project as it reached its finale.

In his Twitter post, the director wrote, “14 years. 745 episodes. 17 awards. 0 Thanksgiving dinner.”

“We may not be important to some, but we are important to those who matter. That’s YOU, Kapamilya. Thank you! #GoodBabyeBulilit,” he added.

His Twitter post garnered mixed reactions from netizens. Some congratulated the director for the success of his show.

However, some netizens think that the director has some resentment towards ABS-CBN.

The line “0 Thanksgiving dinner” made the netizens feel bad for the director and the show. According to them, Goin’ Bulilit deserves a thanksgiving dinner since it brought fame and money to the network for 14 years.

Additionally, it became the stepping stone of some of the stars of today like Kathryn Bernardo, Julia Montes, Miles Ocampo, Kiray Celis, Nash Aguas, Sharlene San Pedro, Jane Oineza, John Manalo, Kristel Fulgar, Alexa Ilacad, and Mika Dela Cruz, among others.

Here are some of netizens’ aired sentiments on Twitter:

Goin’ Bulilit aired its pilot episode on February 6, 2005. The show featured young children in various funny situations to provide laughter to its audience. The show bid its farewell on August 4 with a total of 745 episodes.

During its 14-year run, the kiddie gag show was awarded as The Best Gag Show six times by  PMPC Star Awards for TV. It also bagged four awards from GAWAD TANGLAW, and three from KBP Golden Dove Awards.

On August 4, the Kapamilya program bid its final farewell. It was replaced by the newest program, iWant Originals.
