MANILA, Philippines -- The country's longest-running kiddie gag show "Goin' Bulilit' welcomed its new cast members on Wednesday as the show introduced its newest kids dubbed "Lucky 9."

Child actor JB Agustin, the star of the recently concluded fantasy series "Little Champ," will now join the show together with Aldred Nasayao, CX Navarro, Lance Lucido, Aaliyah Belmoro, Allyson McBride, Ashley Sarmiento, Jillian Aguila and Kazumi Porquez.
According to the show's director, Franco Mortiz, he is really proud of the latest batch of "Goin Bulilit" kids.

"Proud ako sabihin na sa lahat ng batch na na-handle namin, medyo mabibilis ang pick-up ng batch nito. Nakikita namin sa eight years na (ang show), eh medyo nagiiba ang mga bata, mas mature, mas exposed sila sa mga bagay na hindi exposed ang mga bata dati. Mas matanda sila kausap, parang hindi bata ang kausap mo," he noted.

"Mas nakakatulong na dahil nag-iiba ang panahon natin eh mas mabilis silang pumick up, mas mabilis silang makakuha ng bagong ideas at saka 'yung mga tinuturo namin ay mabilis nilang nakukuha kaya hindi kami ganoong kahirap ngayon as compared to dating mga batch," Mortiz added.

The "lucky 9" were selected from more than 3,000 kids who auditioned for the show.

For its June 9 episode, "Goin Bulilit" features a back-to-school theme packed with campus-oriented gags and sketches.

"Goin Bulilit" airs every Sunday after "TV Patrol Weekend."
