The Most Disturbing Show You Haven't Seen
Wonder Showzen will offend even the most calloused sensibilities
Naughty puppetry is hardly a poppin' fresh idea; just ask Peter Jackson or the idiots responsible for Crank Yankers. But at 8:30 on Friday nights, MTV2 has been quietly airing Wonder Showzen, a gasp-inducing Sesame Street parody that uses both child actors and puppets to hilarious effect. (Come for the cheerful kids singing about slavery! Stay to see oral sex demonstratrated by the number 8 and the letter J!) Showzen would surely be buzzed about if not for the crappy timeslot--even puppet sex ain't worth staying in on a Friday night. Tivo this one and enjoy.
