Towards the end of one episode in the fourth season, the show offers the math problem "If he drives 15 MPH for fifteen minutes, how far has he travelled? Answer at the end of the show." When the end credits roll, they say that the answer is 3.5 The correct answer is 3.75 See more »
At the end of each episode's credits under "Special Thanks," there is at least one random name that had nothing to do with the show. This is pointed out by David Cross in the DVD commentary for the first episode. See more »
Here in Australia you had to plain lucky to ever even HEAR of Mr Show, let alone see it. Only briefly shown on cable, it's a disgrace that this show hasn't been better publicised or more widely available, cos if it is was, I GUARANTEE it would become an instant cult for years to come. I'm not exaggerating, this is one of the funniest, sharpest, smartest comedies EVER! It's that good. While individual episodes were sometimes uneven, every one had at least two or three absolutely astonishing bits, and some were ALL good. Best stuff included the Ronnie Dobbs bits (soon to be a movie), the ventriliquist 'wars', the trippy Sid and Marty Kroft parody, and anything involving Jack Black as special guest, particularly the musical homage to JC Superstar ('Jeepers Creepers')and the one about the farmer's daughter. Beg, borrow, steal Mr Show!! I dare you not to laugh hysterically!
