Did You Know?


Bubba J asks Achmed if his flaming-skull car is a "hybrid" vehicle. Jeff Dunham himself owned a Toyota Prius, and in the subsequent movie "Achmed Saves America", Carl Zimmer drives one of these same type of cars, as well. See more »


The goat is presumably still sitting inside the Achmedmobile when the car gets blown sky-high (after exiting the driver's seat and contemptuously tossing the red-button-equipped key-fob at Bubba J, Achmed simply stomps off in a huff; he does not then go around to the passenger's door and lead the goat out the door and away from the vehicle). So presumably the goat, also, got totally incinerated along with the car, yet during Achmed's subsequent conversation with Jeff, Achmed claims to still have the goat. See more »


Walter: [Jeff mentioned that the housing in Africa is bad] Can we talk about the housing?
Jeff Dunham: No.
Walter: [to audience] Okay, listen up.
Jeff Dunham: Wait a minute...
Walter: In the poorest areas...
Jeff Dunham: We went there...
Walter: Yeah, we visited them. I'm not making any jokes, I'm just passing on information. In the poorest areas, their houses, I'm not kidding, were all built out of poo.
Jeff Dunham: Cow dung.
Walter: Shit.

Not too bad
19 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Finally got to see this special on Comedy Central last night. I already knew that he had two new guys in the show, although to be honest, Little Jeff he has done before. Check his autobiography. The beginning I didn't care for with Bubba J as the guard and Achmed driving. This was leftover from the Jeff Dunham show, which didn't work because these are dummies, not Muppets. As for his opening segment with his pictures, which you can see in his autobiography, it was cute and I wish he had mentioned the names of the earlier dummies. Is he ashamed of them? I liked the Walter segment and Achmed and his son was funny too. Peanut and Jose had some great lines, like when Jose called Peanut a Muppet reject. Walter once called him a Muppet on heroin. Nice little joke at the end with a mini-Peanut. I wish though he had tried to use Diane and Bubba J more than in the beginning. I know he can't put everyone in, but maybe he shouldn't try to do new characters in special 5 and just put everyone in as a reunion or something. Jeff is still great and one of the best.
