Michael V. posted a photo from his now defunct gag show, Tropang Trumpo. Also seen in the photo are Gelli de Belen, Ogie Alcasid, and Carmina Villarroel.



Michael V. took a trip down memory lane last Saturday, January 26, by paying tribute to the '90s comedy show, Tropang Trumpo.

On Instagram, the comedian posted a black-and-white photo while doing the "Battle of the Brainless" segment of the show.

Seen in the photo were Michael V. and his co-stars, Earl Ignacio, Gelli de Belen, Ogie Alcasid, and Carmina Villarroel.

Michael V., also known as Bitoy in showbiz circles, wrote, "March 12, 1994. Brainless and proud of it!

"Bago naging #PepitoManaloto, #TropangTrumpo dati ang Sabado ko. Sino nakaka-alala nito?"

"Battle of the Brainless" is one of the popular segments in Tropang Trumpo, which is a parody of RPN-9's game show, Battle of the Brains.

Pepito Manaloto is Michael V.'s weekly sitcom on GMA-7.

Tropang Trumpo was a comedy gag show aired in ABC-5 (now TV5) from March 12, 1994 to March 13, 1999.

In mid-1995, Michael V. and Ogie left the show to join GMA-7's then-new gag show, Bubble Gang, which is still airing on the Kapuso Network.
