It is the special edition of the talent competition Bulaga Pa More! which featured the Dabarkads hosts to revisiting some of Eat Bulaga!'s most iconic segments by creating well-crafted production numbers that are inspired by them.

The nostalgic segment is part of the 36th anniversary celebration of Eat Bulaga! in 2015.

Paolo Ballesteros was declared as the grand winner of the competition. In his Super Sireyna-inspired performance, Paolo performed aerial silks and hoop dancing, without wearing a harness, to the music of "I Am What I Am" and "Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend". He performed with Club Mwah Dancers and Super Sireyna contestants.

Overview

Prior to the competition

The Dabarkads co-hosts were randomly assigned an iconic Eat Bulaga! segment which he or she must create a production number out of. They were given creative freedom to incorporate their own style and concept in their performances, and were also able to include professional dance groups, former contestants, and other personalities that were involved in their assigned segments.

As an honorary longtime Dabarkads, Aiza Seguerra also partook in the competition even though she was not officially a co-host at the time. She was assigned the segment Send in Your Dreams.

To celebrate the success of its first-ever franchise abroad, Eat Bulaga invited its Indonesian counterpart to join the competition. The New Eat Bulaga! Indonesia accepted the invitation and sent Rika Dina Saputra Mihardja as its representative to provide a Little Miss Indonesia-inspired performance. The Indonesian hosts were not available to appear in their presentation.

Kalyeserye's infamous plywood scene.

The wildcard round occurred on Saturday, 5 September 2015. Because the wildcard round was held at the height of the AlDub phenomenon, the performances of both Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza were heavily tied into the Kalyeserye storyline: Lola Nidora made regular appearances in order to prevent Alden and Yaya Dub from seeing each other. The episode featured the infamous plywood that Lola Nidora used to block the path between Yaya Dub and Alden.

A total of 136 judges decided the winner of the wildcard round. Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, Joey de Leon, and Allan K led the panel and was accompanied by another 132 audience judges.
