  • There's nothing I can say, the show speaks for itself.

    Crank Yankers was one of the best cartoon, under South Park, in my opinion, to ever appear on Comedy Central. I don't know why they cancelled the show. I don't even think they announced the cancellation of the show. Viacom overall has made some tough, but wrong decisions, and I'm glad they indirectly are bringing back new episode to Comedy Central's sister station, MTV2. I would always love to watch this show for a bedtime laugh before I turned in, and Comedy Central will pay for the lost in the long run. Crank Yankers is well ahead of its time from its stupidity to the puppets themselves, the show is perfect and original, and the form of viewing picture is good also considering the show.moreless
  • Oh you've gotta be kidding me,PUPPETS?!

    2.5
    Gah,this show stinks so bad,a skunk would run away faster than a roadrunner.The comedy is dry,it's horribly animated,why did they even bother making this crap?I don't belive that this thing should get high rarings because it's terrible.Heck,I don't think it even deserves to be on the air.I've seen good comedies like Fawlty Towers,Mr.Bean,Bottom,etc.Now those are wild and hilarious.This,I should say no.I mean,bad comedy,horrible animation,and hideous puppets anyone?The puppets are so ugly,it's not even funny.The facial expressions make me feel like barfing.I guess there are the comedies that are funny,and the dry ones like this one.All in all,I give it a 2.5/10moreless
  • Probobly the worst show i've seen CC come out with i a long time.

    2.2
    Jimmy Kimmel should probobly let his wife Sarah Silverman do the comedy from now on. This show is for people with very simple and boring taste. The last time i heard a prank call was probobly when i was 12, and i was most likely not that impressed by the concept. This show gets mistaken for comedy becouse, well, not everybody, including myself, aren't all shakesspears. we like retarded comedy and really that's cool. But i can't seem to get myself to laugh for anything this pretty retenitve show does. Maybe Jimmy should bring back the man show, then he'll be back on my good side.moreless

    8.0
    the show cranke yankers is about prank calls that are so out rages its not even funny. the jokes and everything in the show are funny. and the things they say during the pranks calles make me laugh. but i think it was just avarge show they came up with i dont think it was one of there best shows but it still had enough funny ness to last a few years. there was more then a few swears in the show they used that type of comedy were there swearing like practily 24 7. but hey it still gets8moreless
  • wow!

    8.2
    wow! this show has off the wall comedy. ever caracter made every part a stich in a even greater episode. Crank Yankers was one of the best shows on tv, when i found out it was cancelled i was shocked. I would bet any money that special ed (mine and everyone elses favorite character) probally caused a huge contrvesy and they needed to cancel the show. This show helps retarded people learn how to make the best prank phone calls (not that im retarded or any thing). This show has some amazingly funny jokes and needs to be brought back.moreless
