Product Description

The absurdist comedy of Wonder Showzen is back with all of your favorites in nauseatingly delightful abundance—the puppets, the cartoons, the kids, the madness. Relive all those Saturday mornings spent in front of the tube in your jammies, with a demented twist of course, as Chauncey, Wordsworth, Clarence and the gang deliver more smartly subversive fun. Sing along now, "Kids show….. kids show……"

Amazon.com

The second season of the bizarre MTV2 series Wonder Showzen is not exactly a rehash of season one; it's more like a ramped-up version of the same stuff that was such a cruelly hilarious invention of a children's puppet/variety show from hell. The same warning about it not being a kids' show precedes each episode, with the material following more lunatic, more self-reflexive, and way more not-for-kids than the stuff remembered by those who fell in love with Wonder Showzen for exactly those reasons. The eight episodes and smattering of bonus materials are presented in a fun kid's book rip-off cardboard case, complete with a "storybook" that has nothing to do with the episodes, but everything to do with the psychotic antics and fuzzy characters returning that populate the show. A sampling of the bigger-budgeted episodes include "Body," in which the letter P gets fat, turns into the letter B, then gets liposuction to improve her self-esteem. It's no surprise when the puppetted, sucked-out excess fat gains self-awareness. There's also "Cooperation," in which fake bootlegged versions of Wonder Showzen battle it out using the same theme and sketch outlines simultaneously in the four corners of the screen. Another episode is entirely devoted to a take off on "Hee Haw" called "Horse Apples" which gleefully tromps all over "Middle America" (a.k.a. Texas) and right-wing conservative values. The "Horse Apples" thing pops up in another episode, and is explored more fully in some of the off the wall bonus material. The final episode of the season is an analysis of TV in which Chauncey asks people on the street what kinds of shows they would make. Some care and some don't, which pretty much sums up how people will feel about Wonder Showzen itself as television. Only two of the episodes have commentary tracks, but the show's creators do not speak on them; they're the real thoughts of actual scientists talking about the physics of time travel and the morality of genocide. Funny! --Ted Fry

My girlfriend just had an abortion and was kind of bummed out. I bought her this and had it delivered to her apartment a few weeks before christmas. When she watched it, she was horrified and called crying. I told her that we should see other people because I wasn't ready for that kind of commitment. I told all of her friends and family about what she had done, and her christmas was ruined.

Hard as it may be to believe it, the second season of "Wonder Showzen" is even more irreverant than the first, going so far as to include at least one episode of a (seemingly) completely different series --- intentionally, of course. It's a shame that only two seasons were made.

Wonder Showzen is a cult hit, and if you're reading this review, there's a good chance that you're part of the cult. I'm not quite sure how to write a review that would do this DVD justice, but I will say that this show is awesome and I like this season even more than the first one. The writing is sharper, the humor is more demented, and the kids are (for lack of a better phrase) in the zone.

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.

This product is amazing, not only does it have a really nice, imaginative case, it's Wonder Showzen for heaven's sake. I wish some days there was a blu-ray version, but in hindsight the quality really isn't that bad. I highly recommend getting this if you want a physical copy of this amazing, well done, gory, satire. Though remember, you're only paying for the packaging, the episodes of Wonder Showzen are free to watch legally on MTV's website. So just remember that if you are thinking of buying.

You're hard-pressed to find genuine avant-garde on television, but this definitely counts. Wonder Showzen has made me laugh harder than anything in my entire life, except perhaps George Carlin.

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.)

i saw this show as a kid (unfortunately) and it has been my favorite show so far. They push the boundaries with a lot of obscene content, everything offensive that you can think of is on this show and it's hilarious. Some parts have me crying in laughter, if you ever get this season, look for the Dusty the Talking Dog bit, that's my favorite out of the whole second season

If you're wondering, yes, both 1st and 2nd are equally amazing and worth getting

I got mine for 10$ straight from Amazon new, so it's not a bad idea to get it now

If you watched 3 minutes of any one show you might think this is the worst show on TV. It takes a little longer to appreciate the complexity of the underlying ideas the show brings.

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.
