Synopsis

Just in case anyone should mistake the devastatingly satirical MTV2 series Wonder Showzen for a genuine kiddie show, the season one opener does a good job dispelling this misapprehension. The episode is "sponsored" by the letter N, who, unlike its Sesame Street counterpart, is a neurotic and guilt-ridden basket case, ending up in a bad romantic relationship before the final fade-out. In subsequent episodes, the Wonder Showzen puppets (Jeez, they're ugly!) take a trip into outer space, only to get into a fight with God. A journey to the bottom of the ocean is a wondrous thing until it isn't. A program sponsored by "Numbers" degenerates into a violent turf battle with "Letters" -- and this on an episode titled "Diversity." Puppet Chauncey can't cope with the realization that Mother Nature has had a sex-change operation. "Number One" and "Number Two" duke it out until the loser is diminished into "Number Zero." Puppet Wordsworth parlays a bad case of head lice into a financial windfall. And an episode shouting the praises of "Patience" gets on everyone's nerves until "Speed" shows up (and yes, "Speed" has a double meaning if you want to dig for it). ~ Hal Erickson
