Top Customer Reviews
A few of the episodes in Season 2 have very low re-play value, and are almost as annoying as they are inventive, but even they are worth watching once. The rest, however, are keepers through and through. (And the same could be said for Season 1, too, actually.)
(Also: one of the reviewers compared the Clarence's "word on the street" routines with Tom Greene and some other flavor-of-the-month's "word on the street" bits, but this is not a very apt comparison, for reasons that will quickly become clear after watching them.)
The creators are smart, the kids are fantastic (gotta love Trevor and Beat Kids), and the subjects are relevant. I think they must have been shocked when they were green lit for a second season. They played this one like they knew there was no way they would be asked for a third.
Tackling issues like our constitution and the subversion of it, education, gun control, war, freedom of speech, slavery, racism, the meat market, TV and the common American idiot. They present these ideas for the MTV generation. A person can easily understand (and laugh), but are left with the overall message the story's portray, obviously or subconsciously.
They make you laugh, they make you sick (even the cartoons), they get you talking and they make you think.
If you happened to catch the tail end of a Wonder Showzen episode or have only seen one or two episodes and are on the fence about buying this DVD - do yourself a a favor and buy it; actually, the power of Christ compels you to buy it. Although there are only 7 episodes, each one is hilarious and they'll have you rolling on the floor for weeks.
For those looking for some sort of comparison, I guess I would say the closest thing is TV Funhouse. However, Wonder Showzen is to TV Funhouse what Sin City is to the Care Bears.

I've had this for a few years now, and I just realized that there's an adult children's book in the case. Presentation on this product is top notch. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Rodger

There is nothing I could possibly say to explain this program.
Ok maybe there is but it is best if you just watch it.
