The teen-oriented show consisted of Star Magic talents of the first millennium. It also paved way for
other teen programs such as F.L.A.M.E.S (which aired Sundays and weekday afternoons internationally
through TFC throughout 1996-2003 and reaired through January 2007-December 2007 through KPTV
Kapamilya Channel (20072011) now renamed as BRO) and the hit TV series Buttercup, from 2001 to
2003. The show became a rival for TGIS from August 1995 to November 27, 1999 (a distributed teen-
oriented show distributed by GMA-7 and Viva Television) Both programs had films and spin-offs.


The series was originally created as part of ABS-CBN's 40th anniversary. The series, which was patterned
on Beverly Hills, 90210,[1] first aired June 15, 1996. Gimik originally aired on 4 pm Saturdays. The show
last aired on February 13, 1999 in ABS-CBN.[2]

of Rica Peralejo, Baron Geisler, Kristine Hermosa, Paula Peralejo, Dominic Ochoa, Carlos Agassi, Laura
