Student Canteen was the only noontime show that existed in the 1970s before the birth of Eat Bulaga!, whose main hosts were originally taken out from the former, on July 30, 1979.
Antonio Tuviera, who was working for the company, thought that the comic troika of Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon — better known as TVJ (who had gained fame through GMA Network's Discorama and as pinch-hitters for Student Canteen, but subsequently left both) — would be the perfect hosts for the new program.

Sison started his singing career after his triumph on a singing contest in Channel 7's noontime variety show Student Canteen in the late 70's and early 80's.
