Unfunny chat show with the word `f**k' substituted for jokes
Deep in the Bronx, a bunny runs a small cable access show where he interviews celebrities and tries to keep control of his drugged-up friend Teddy T as he continually comes on to the female guests and takes any opportunity to get his little panda c*ck out on television. Interspersed with the guests are small animated sections that teach the youth the ways of the Bronx.
I watched this as it was described as an adult puppet show and I assumed it would be like the funny bits of the Adam & Joe Show. The I realised that it was made by the Zig and Zag creators and that the word adult didn't mean mature - it meant dirty! The show is structured into 3 or 4 minute guest spots and minor little animated bits in-between. The animated bits spoof Sesame Street and are generally just dirty songs or words. Other bits include strippers shaping themselves into the shape of numbers or Teddy T having sexual fantasies. The actual guest spots include some reasonably famous celebrities (for example the most recent episode had Ming Na and Jessica Alba) however they are very short and the puppets say at least 4 times as much as the celebs. I wondered why Alba bothered when all she had to do was be the focal point for smut from Teddy T - however this is much the case for most of the guests. The interviews are of no value as they have no discussion and the smut is just embarrassing rather than funny.
In fitting with the Bronx setting, the two characters both speak with Nu Yark accents and say the words `sh*t', `f**k', `c*ck' or `motherf**ker' at least every five or six words. This makes it feel rather `adult but not actually funny. The characters are also not really characters but just mouth pieces for smut and swear words. They are basically Zig and Zag but with more cursing - if that's your thing then this is for you and good luck, you clearly have lower standards for `humour' than I do.
Overall this is rather a waste of 25 minutes. It isn't very funny and the interesting guests are only really used as a focal point for smut and heavy innuendo (if you could call it that). It isn't funny but I imagine that teenagers and students will find it on late night tv and lap it up like sheep! For me, I gave it a few episodes and that was more than enough.
