A second taste of the tasteless not-for-children’s kids show.

If you haven’t forgiven me yet for posting the He-Bro cartoon, stop right here. Walk away from the computer and get on with your knitting…okay, they’re gone. The rest of us can have some fun.

WARNING: WONDER SHOWZEN CONTAINS OFFENSIVE, DESPICABLE 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.

Genuine opening title. Backed with the sound of someone screaming.

Wonder Showzen lasted two seasons. After watching about half the first season on DVD I’m surprised it survived a single episode. I mean, a duck with a talking bum goes back in time to give Einstein a lobotomy… God loses a game of rock-paper-scissors and shoots himself… puppets harrass pedestrians with often violent and abusive results… and I’m only scratching the surface here. It’s Sesame Street on bad LSD. Cartoon Corner with homicidal impulses. And even though it’s not a kid’s show, there are no shortage of kids taking part.

I couldn’t find Tyler (America’s Most Perfect Child!) but I did find Trevor. And I’ll be honest. I see a lot of Trevor in myself. I watch this smartmouth little guy sassing grownups and I think, gee, that’s still where I am today.

Arrested development. How pitiful.

Take it away, Trevor.

  1. Hi,
    Wonder Showzen actually sounds like a really stupid show, I’m surprised anyone watched it at all. đŸ™‚

    As for “Take it away Trevor” I just felt the kid needed to be taken out back, and given a whack on the bum, or the microphone ripped from his hands, or something, I didn’t watch it all the way through, I know it was suppose to be funny, but it had the opposite effect on me sorry.

    • It wasn’t to everyone’s taste. I could never understand the cult around the Blues Brothers, myself.
