TOP FIVE BEST SEGMENTS AND SKETCHES OF BUBBLE GANG

Remember Bel Tiongco of Rampage? How about Mr Assimo and how about Bonggang Bonggang Bongbong? Remember the Sexball Dancers? Or how about the Muchas Grasas family? Bubble Gang is probably one of the most successful gag shows in Philippine TV. It is currently the longest running gag show in the Philippines which was first aired on October 1995. The show is known for their parodies (political, religion and current events), funny skits and sketches, commercial spoofs. Few of its original casts include Ogie Alcasid, Michael V, Wendell Ramos, Antonio Aquitania,Aiko Melendez and Assunta De Rossi. Some of them already left the show but replaced by new batch of comedians including Rufa Mae Quinto, Diana Zubiri, Ara Mina, Boy 2 Quizon, Maureen Larazabal and more. I am a big fan of this show so today I listed down five of my favorite or possibly the Best segments of Bubble Gang

TOP 5 BEST SEGMENTS AND SKETCHES OF BUBBLE GANG
"CHE CHE BURECHE"
Che Che Bureche is a comic sketch starring Ogie Alcasid as Che Che and Michael V as Bureche. Cheche and Bureche were twin sisters who lived by their father played by Antonio Aquitana. Cheche is usually the kind one while Bureche is some sort of a bully who is always fooling her sister Cheche. Whenever their father leaves for work, Bureche will start to bully her sister. She terrorize Cheche with her vile antics, but usually becomes the victim of her own schemes.  Bureche will always pretend as the abused one but Cheche is the one who's always getting the attention.

"ANG DATING DOON"
Ang Dating Doon is probably the shows' most successful segment which started on 1998. It features Isko Moreno as Brod Pete, Cesar Cosme as Bro. Willy and Chito Francisco as Bro. Joel. It is basically a parody of a popular religious program "Ang Dating Daan" but they used to interpret fairy tales, children's literature and song lyrics instead of religious scriptures. They make use of the anime song of Voltes V as their opening and closing song. The segment will begin when an audience will start to ask question to Brod Pete and he will interpret it in return using nursery rhymes, song lyrics and children's literature. Because of its popularity, their characters became their nicknames. They are sometimes referred to, or credited as Isko "Brod Pete" Salvador, Cesar "Brother Willy" Cosme and Chito "Brother Jocel" Francisco. After the segment ended on 1999, it was briefly revived on 2001-2005 where the exclamations like Alien! and Raise the Roof! became popular. The segment was again revived last 2011 up to present.

"PICK UP LINES"
Pick Up Lines is another highly influential segment of Bubble Gang which introduces the famous character of Boy Pick Up (portrayed by Ogie Alcasid) and Neneng B (played by Sam Pinto). The Pickup Line Battle is composed of a preliminary round wherein two contestants will try to impress the woman moderator named Neneng Bakit, or simply Neneng B. using their pickup lines. The winner of the match will be determined by audience impact, and moves on to face the "undefeated" Pickup Liner named Boy Pickup.  In the end, Boy Pickup, who sometimes show up his trademark Zippo lighter, will remain undefeated, despite the fact that his pickup lines are so deep only a selected few can understand its true meaning including Boy Back Up who will cheer loudly at the back. The skit was also adapted into movie entitled Boy Pick Up the Movie.

"YOURS TRULY: JUNIE LEE"
Yours Truly: Junie Lee is personally one of my favorite segments from Bubble Gang. The segment was first aired on 2002 to 2004. Junie Lee is one of Michael V's iconic fictional characters along with Bebang and Mr Assimo. It is basically patterned like a talk show in which Junie is the main host and his mission is to interview different celebrity. Junie Lee has this weird mannerism which makes the character more laughable. He used to stutter during the interview and is always running out of questions. Most of the questions are based on real celebrity intrigues but it is being asked the funny way. 

THE BEST SEGMENTS AND SKETCHES OF BUBBLE GANG
"ANG SPOILED"
Ang Spoiled is a segment about a brute kid Angelina (played by Ogie Alcasid) and her Yaya (played by Michael V). Her orders always bring her nanny to worst. Angelina's notable quotes are "Yaya, you're such a loser!", "Big Deal" and "Whatever" in which she has her own finger gestures. Sketches show Angelina and her yaya in many places,such as in the mall,in school and somewhere else,but most sketches show them both in Angelina's house, notably inside her room. The segment has become extremely popular and most Filipino adapted those famous Angelina's quotes and gestures. It was also adapted into film entitled Yaya & Angelina : The Spoiled Brat Movie.
