Wonder Showzen

Show Summary

Wonder Showzen is an absurdist comedy/variety show, featuring a team of puppets, kids, cartoons and old educational films. It's a sugar coated comedic explosion for the fortified child in us all. Wonder Showzen is a chaotic mix of puppets, animation and live action with a twist that will leave viewers torn between laughter, sadness and sheer perplexity. Episodes will contain skits from the main puppets (Chauncey, Wordsworth, Sthugar and Him), news segments with A.P. Gibralter, and Clarence's "puppet on the street" skit. Think delightfully dark yet smartly subversive. Wonder Showzen takes your favorite things about watching TV as a kid and turns them into a twisted nightmare for all ages. Wonder Showzen's first season was shown in MTV2's "Sic'em Friday" block, which included WildBoyz and Team Sanchez. The second season of the show was shown in MTV2's "Sic'emation" block which included The Adventures of Chico & Guapo and Where My Dogs At?. WARNING WONDER SHOWZEN CONTAINS OFFENSIVE, DISPICIBLE CONTENT THAT IS TOO CONTROVERSIAL AND TOO AWESOME FOR ACTUAL CHILDREN. THE STARK, UGLY, PROFOUND TRUTHS WONDER SHOWZEN EXPOSES MAY BE SOUL CRUSHING TO THE WEAK OF SPIRIT. IF YOU ALLOW A CHILD TO WATCH THIS SHOW, YOU ARE A BAD PARENT OR GUARDIAN. TV MA: Mature audiences only. This program is specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore may be unsuitable for children under 17. This program contains mature themes.moreless

  • a crazy show with the sickest kids in the known universe........add in puppet insanity and acid flashbacks and you have the grounds for something unique.

    this show is sick............and i mean that in a good way. its dark at times, its hilarious almost always, and some of the kids are just plain crazy.its probably hit or miss for most, but theres an underlying genius here. youll need a twisted sense of humor, or you wont get it. all in all i love it, and if you havent seen it, give it a try.
  • An Existential Black Hole of Comedy

    9.6
    I often watch episodes of this show holding my face in utter horror and disbelief...and some might say \"joy.\" Modern TV comedy has never been drawn this dark and hopeless and more insanely funny. The conceit of a \"children\'s show\" that is intended for anyone but children is an idea that has been attempted many times by lesser writers and performers. The writers of Wonder Showzen have dipped their oars into a black river of despair fueled by hypocrisy, racism, rabid corporatism and soulless marketing, exploitation of children, globalism and steered us deep up river, into the heart of darkness. And yet it is brilliantly, insanely funny. So smart, so funny, so bleak-- it hurts. WARNING: Do not watch this if you are on MAO inhibitors or SSRI medications or suffer from mood disorders. This show may well push you over the edge.moreless
  • This show scares me.

    7.0
    This show is okay, but I just don't understand why tons of people like it. They have warped kids saying things that they should never say. It's what would happen if Trey Parker made Sesame Street, except the guy who voices Towelie does it. Why does it need to look like that? Is it to create a message or make fun of stereotypes? And also, why aren't there any watchdog groups fighting this show? This show has got to be more offensive than South Park(South Park has become more accepted by parents). Still, it's okay. It's still more disturbing than funny for me.moreless
  • Find the hidden message

    At first side ''Wonder showzen'' looks like something bad made up to fill the minds of the audience with trash,but have you ever wonder why ''Wonder showzen'' discusses themes like racialism,war,domestic violence,sexism,poverty,propaganda and many other bad things that are a problem nowadays.The answer is simple:''Wonder showzen'' has a hidden message.It has the purpose to expose the ugly side of humanity and to make the people disgussed from themselves.The only problem is that many people understand it incorrectly because of the violence.Some of them think that ''Wonder showzen'' is stupid because of the gross stuff,and others for example the younger ones like it but still don`t get the idea.They think it is cool because of the violence,they don`t see it as edifying. I think that people shouldn`t watch only the outside of a show.I think they should try to get deeper and find the hidden message.moreless
  • Show was interesting but scary

    9.5
    What can i say, i liked the show but my old review was too childish, kinda like the show but this show is NOT FOR KIDS! Have your kids watch it and you are in trouble for what you children will learn. I feel that the show was satisfactory but not my overall favorite MTV show only because it is a little too creepy, but i guess that is all i can say except watch it if you want and don't hate on me if you dislike it.
