Trivia

Even though Bob and David joke about getting hate mail a lot in Mr. Show, the only time they actually received some was from a military veteran offended by a sketch where a character attempts to defecate on an American flag. Bob and David then called up the veteran and realized he hadn't watched the entire sketch, because the character never successfully managed to defecate on the flag. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

David: And what about you Bob? Always out there singing the rap songs...
Bob: [looks around at rest of cast and says quietly] Well that's just me David, I'm from the streets.

User Reviews

Best kept secret in comedy!
26 June 2001 | by InfofreakSee all my reviews

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!
