Wonder Showzen (2005) Poster

An all-cynical, all-evil absurdist variety show that parodies the classic educational PBS shows of the 1970s, made up of old cartoons and educational films, children, and puppets from one's worst nightmares.

| One of the Best Comedy Shows of All Time
"Wonder Showzen" is everything it set out to be: outrageously funny while at the same time standing against everything right and good in this world. Abortions, sex changes, atheism, child abuse... alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide... if they haven't touched upon it, it probably hasn't been invented yet.

Obviously, the show isn't for everyone. Kids shouldn't be watching this, most likely. Religious people or conservatives may be grossly offended. Vegans might be a bit upset. So, if you're uptight about anything, just stay away. If you're jaded like me, though, you'll love this.

My only complaint is that the shock value wears off quickly and the show's jokes get repetitive once you catch on to their targets. The first episode is by far the funniest, with the following shows being funny but more derivative of the opener and not nearly as original. That, and after you hear "a cougar in Wyoming is having a nightmare", there's really nowhere else to go.
