Since I only get about ten channels through my analogue cable, and about 70% of those are public broadcasting of some sort, I had not heard about a show on MTV called Wonder Showzen. But then I read an articlean interview with the shows creators from TV Tattle and it piqued my curiousity. I quickly learned the basic premise of the show is Sesame Street for twisted adults like me.
Thanks to You Tube, my new best friend, you can see a bunch of Wonder Showzen clips here. Among my favourites is "Beat Kids 104," in which an 8-year-old girl grills Wall Streeters on capitalism; "Slaves!" a musical tribute to cheap labour throughout the years; and "What Are You Running From?" where people get waaaay too upset when a hand puppet tries to interview them on their morning jog. Season One is coming out soon on DVD. Can't wait!
