Its almost artistic the way Wonder Showzen is done, the segments flow right into one another,I wont say anymore about this show just get this dvd.

This show simply has no limits in itself about taboo subjects, it's very political and very raw/blunt/limitless.

In a culture where everything is ironic and everyone is trying to be shocking, it's difficult to find anything in entertainment that actually feels new and original. Wonder Showzen is one of those rare programs that has managed to push it's way past everything else and demand to be seen. The humor is refreshing and nothing is sacred or off limits. Some people may find some of the storylines and shorts to be highly offensive, but that is simply because they're not thinking about what the creators are really trying to say, and yes, the show is funny and entertaining, but there is some very deep social commentary being made in each episode.
Unfortunately, someone at Paramount Pictures (the company that is distributing the DVD) decided that some of the social commentary needed to be silenced for this DVD release. During the "Ocean" episode, there's a great animated short called "H.O.B.O. Opps". The short is about how America always fails to take care of their war veterans. And even though the veterans in the short are from the Vietnam war, their situation can be applied to how many of our current veterans from Iraq are coming home wounded and unable to pay their bills and medical bills thanks to our inadequette health care system. Two parts of this short have been cut from the DVD. First, the audio of one of the hobos urinating in public was removed, in the hopes that now the viewer wont be able to tell what this character is doing. And second, the end of the short was cut altogether. If you catch the rerun on MTV2, it ends with a young boy asking his mother "who that man was talking to" and she tells him to ignore the man. The camera then zooms in on a tear rolling down the boy's face that has a reflection of the American flag in it and the flag bursts into flames.

WONDER SHOWZEN - Season 1.

-

This show is Genius... absolute genius! Wonder Showzen takes a dark, satirical look at what we are really teaching our children (?)

During the average episode it will have puppets interacting with children in sesame street style antics and of course going out on the street to ask people questions (The Clarence skit about Patience is priceless!), funny little cartoons (`Bible Brew... What would Jesus Brew?') , strange voice-overs old educational footage (Like the chicken dinner factory...) and my favorite segments with the children doing interviews... titled BEAT-KIDS (`Kids on the Street, Kids on the beat, Beat-Kids! Beat-Kids')

All in all, this is a priceless disc like nothing you have ever seen or could imagine trying to describe it is damn near impossible...

I lies somewhere between the witty satire of `The Daily Show' mixed with the raunch of `South-Park' and presented by kids that are too cool for Sesame Street. Just Freakin Awesome!!!

-If you like dark, twisted comedy and you don't check this out, you are less of a person.

I'm not going to talk too much about the show, but it's absolutely great with all sorts of hilarious moments, from the very short punch line sketches like the slaves song to Chauncey's dishonest actions to the cartoons like Segregation works because it has to and tradgedy farms milk.

The DVD has lots of extra features.

Disc 1:

Commentaries: The commentaries have very little to with the episodes.

Steven Hawking (Space): Obviously not him, but sounds like his electronic thing and says lots of weird things.

PFFR (Diversity): Just music by the band played throughout the episode.

Dick Gregory (Nature): He has some funny things to say but it is mostly political advice for young people. There is one section where he is censored to make a very scientific part of the commentary sound like he is saying lots of bad words.

Easter Eggs:

Not sure how to access them from the menu (if possible) but they are Titles 7-11 and easily accesible through Windows Media Player

7 - Chauncey and the Letter N sing a song about things that start with N.

8 - An extended scene with Tyler with the feather in the straw hut.

9 - An extenstion of Tyler doing the silly walk down the street.

10 - A kid interviewing in the studio some guy who is the "president" Very weird and funny.

11 - The producers talking to a kid about a jaguar. Also very weird and funny.

Disc 2:

Commentary:

Gordon Lish (Patience) - Sounds like he's having a conversation at a restaurant with the creators and they do their own little Patience repetition and a couple of other words that sound funny but I have no clue as to what they mean.

First episode I saw, I thought the show was racist, INCREDIBLY TASTELESS, offensive, overall insulting and completelly disrespectfull towards every single moral value of our society. I thought also the show as it was should be banned and maybe taken off the air. Then, a week later when I saw another episode I was laughing so hard I could barelly breathe.

This show simply has no limits in itself about taboo subjects, it's very political and very raw/blunt/limitless. The people that make this show besides obviously being on drugs while writting it, they also just don't care about ANYTHING whatsoever, meaning that they won't give a damn if anyone gets insulted by anything they are saying or potraying. For a little example, almost every single show has a sex scene between puppets.

This show breaks every single moral rule and yeah, it will get you pissed, it will make you angry, it will ofend you, mostly you will be saying time after time " I cannot believe they said that" or "did that". That's why this show is so entertaining.

If you haven't seen this show, just imagine the TOM GREEN SHOW, JACKASS, ANDY MILONAKIS, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, MAD TV, CHAPPELLE SHOW and SESAME STREET, all mixed up, times a MILLION and WAY MORE EXTREME than any of these shows together.

Yes, it's that good.

Also, I forgot to mention that the show has a very fast pacing, everything happens so fast that you will miss 99% of the punchlines 'cause some of them are so ahead of it's time that you will have to give it a minute. Also, VERY SUBLIMINAL. Very fast images, hidden content ( like pictures flashing at 1 frame per second ) reversed talk, reversed audio messages.

THIS SHOW IS NUTS.

BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT.

This is the BEST SHOW EVER DONE.
