MANILA, Philippines— ABS-CBN has until the end of MTRCB office hours Tuesday, at 7pm, to submit the proposed remedial measures for its Sunday children’s show, “Goin’ Bulilit,” Eugenio Villareal, head of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) told the INQUIRER on Tuesday.

The measures shall include appointment of a resident child psychology expert (psychiatrist or psychologist), a post review mechanism at least for the mandatory three-month period or closer collaboration between MTRCB and “Goin’ Bulilit,” Villareal added.

He said, “Upon receipt, our Ad Hoc Committee shall make a ruling thereon. We have emphasized that in cases like this, the best interest and well-being of the child (whether performer or viewer) is paramount.”

“In fairness, the conference on Monday was marked by the network’s desire to cooperate, even while it was very candid and challenging,” Villareal said.

“It was the first time that we were aided by a volunteer child psychiatrist provided by the Philippine Psychiatric Association, with which MTRCB recently signed a MOA of cooperation. The conference was also marked by the showing of a short advocacy video on the theme ‘what children see, children do’,” he said.

    WTF???

  • William Dave

    just make it a kiddie show will ya, ABS-CBN?

  • themask celestial

    Appoint a kid as writers. Lower down the greed. Remove the midget comedian and William Dave is right-just make it a kiddie show.

  • BCon

    Let Ryzza Mae Dizon mentor the writers.

  • on_hindsight

    in most of their episodes, they use those kids to deliver political jokes which are definitely not a kid’s stuff. what do they know about politics? that’s tantamount to polluting young minds.

    IMHO, nothing wrong with the theme of the show. when my son asks questions about the topic or a certain joke from the show, I answered it in all honesty. as parents, we should guidance to our child(ren) on programs that they are watching.

    For me, watching spongebob square pants is more harmful than goin bulilit. you don’t get any values watching the former program.

    what the show depicts borders reality and reel-ty. It just like watching “Abangan ang susunod na kabanata” but with child actors and actresses. As for using child actors or actresses to deliver adult lines or strips, it puts much weight on honesty because of the deliverer. Although some view it as child-abuse, I see it the other way around.

    just my two cents.

    • dreddurius

      And what, exactly, are the values a child may learn from “Goin’ Bulilit?”

      • pubringjuandelacruz

        that jokes are always half-meant. corrupt politicians exists in our country and those kid actors portray them in a manner with humor. This is what I always tell my child when his watching the show.

        do you teach your kids, that every thing they see in TV are all fictional? And Spongebob Square pants has values?

        if your answer is YES… I pity you… and God bless to your kiid(s).

      • dreddurius

        And half-meant jokes (meant for adults), such as honeymoon skits, sexual innuendos, et al, done by kids (forcibly) FOR kids are all covered under your assumption of “values”?

        “Kids these things you see aren’t true… it’s fictional.”
        Don’t underestimate the mind of a kid.

        (And don’t slap your Spongebob argument, you grasp at straws… and I love that cartoon).

        And half-meant jokes (meant for adults), such as honeymoon skits, sexual innuendos, et al, done by kids (forcibly) FOR kids are all covered under your assumption of “values”?

        are those not true? honeymoons don’t happen in real life? sexual innuendos doesn’t happen in real life?

        can’t you explain to your child what the skit is all about? what no time for explanation when your kid is watching a tv show? lousy!

        “Kids these things you see aren’t true… it’s fictional.”
        Don’t underestimate the mind of a kid.

        I didn’t say that… I’m asking you if you teach your child that everything they see in TV or Movie are fictional.

        And don’t slap your Spongebob argument, you grasp at straws… and I love that cartoon

        What value(s) do you get from watching that cartoon?

    • dreddurius

      It just like watching “Abangan ang susunod na kabanata” but with child actors and actresses…. I find your post disturbing. I pity your kids.

  • oh_noh

    great! there is always this so-called “limit” to everything…
