> Description 
Wonder Showzen is an adult sketch comedy television series airing in 2005 on MTV and MTV2. It was created by John Lee and Vernon Chatman.

The show's format is that of older children's shows, such as Sesame Street or The Electric Company (e.g., use of stock footage, puppetry, and clips of children being interviewed). However, Wonder Showzen parodies the format in a very adult-oriented manner. In addition to general controversial comedy, it satirizes politics, religion, war, and culture with black comedy.

Recurring skits include interviews with kids (who give irreverent, controversial answers), kid reporters interviewing adults in a segment titled "Beat Kids," and man-on-the-street interviews by the puppet Clarence, voiced by Vernon Chatman, who also voiced the character Towelie in South Park.

Interestingly enough, Wonder Showzen was originally developed and pitched to the USA Network. After about five minutes of viewing, executives at the USA Network said that there was no way they could air this. However, Viacom was re-branding MTV2 and made Wonder Showzen part of its new programming lineup. It aired as part of Sic 'Em Fridays, along with MTV's Damage Control and Jackass spinoff Wildboyz. The pilot was named simply Kids Show. The Wonder Showzen theme song is still Kids Show.
