Jail? A little harsh, but than again, the KIDS :shock:

I honestly don't remember EW reviewing it, must have been a long time ago. *sigh* :?

Lets just hope it doesn't get reserected, ala Family Guy. Darn those DVD's :x ;)

Guess which show is coming back? ;) No, it's not Wonder Showzen. Been so long that show is a complete blur. Was it really that offensive?

Anyhoo, Crank Yankers is the show being revived. Sounds somewhat interesting.

OMG this show! It was just so sick. :? But honestly I don’t even care all that much about all that gross stuff anymore, I know that kind of humor does appeal to some, so whatever.

MY REAL PROBLEM when I first started this thread (what was it, like 15 years ago! 😳) is still my problem now...it was EXTREMELY WRONG AND REPREHENSIBLE for the creators to use actual young children, all of whom looked well under 12, to communicate their unimaginably twisted view of the world. The fact that the show was basically a savage satire of the original Sesame Street, (with all of its joy and wisdom chewed up and then spat out) makes the children’s participation all the more creepy and demoralizing. :(.

Oh here’s the article I’d linked to...it describes the show’s content in more detail.

The kids who acted back then (2005-2006) would mostly be in their early twenties now. I feel horrible for them...they probably know by now that they were acting in a TV-MA rated comedy when they were like eight or nine years old. So disgusting. :(.

Interesting about Crank Yankers! I definitely enjoyed that show when I watched it. :)
