Trivia / Eat Bulaga!

Go To

  • Channel Hop: When it original started airing in 1979, it aired on RPN. In 1989, it switched to ABS-CBN. In 1995, it switched channels again, this time to GMA Network. The show jokingly alluded to this through the catchphrase "9–2=7, Totoo ang Sie7e" ("Nine minus two equals seven, Seven is really true") when they promoted the move immediately before the show's entry to GMA Network.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The BOOM! segments are based on an Israeli quiz show of the same name and are distributed by the original game's franchise distributor, Keshet International. Copyright issues with Keshet prevent the segments from being included in official YouTube uploads, so if you want to watch BOOM! segments at any time without actually tuning in to episodes as they air on TV, you'll have to hunt down fan copies of the segments.

  • Missing Episode: Archive footage of Eat Bulaga's first three years (1979-1982) are presumed to be lost, though a snippet of an episode from 1981 did surface on their YouTube channel.
  • Playing Against Type: Every Lenten season, the show's Dabarkads appear in heavy, tear-jerking dramas instead of their usual menu of knock-knock jokes and ribald humor. Not surprisingly, veteran funnymen like Vic Sotto, Joey De Leon, and Michael V often end up doing a much better job with drama than those who actually specialize in drama.
  • Star-Making Role: The show is perhaps what launched the careers of Tito, Vic and Joey, as well as Ice Seguerra, Jessa Zaragoza and Ryzza Mae Dizon all of whom started off as child contestants in the Little Miss Philippines segment.
