Wonder Showzen

The creators of Wonder Showzen had huge balls; they weren't afraid to bash on America. This show has a lot of subliminal messages about how fucked up people or the world really is. And remember, the creators used satirical humor ("In satire, vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, and society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be funny, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon. WIKI"). Not everyone will find it funny and the creators totally expected that.

And they didn't give a fuck.

Why the hell was this show ever cancelled in the first place? It was freaking AWESOME. This is one of those shows where it is so damn offensive that you can't help but laugh at it... but of course, you should never take its cruel humor to heart. And no, laughing at the show doesn't mean you are evil. I already know that we are horrible human beings in the first place anyway (Don't try to deny or hide it), and this show is there to prove that=) Enjoy

From Wiki:
"Wonder Showzen is an American sketch comedy television series that aired between 2005 and 2006 on MTV2. It was created by John Lee and Vernon Chatman of PFFR. The show is rated TV-MA.

The show's format is that of educational PBS children's television shows such as Sesame Street and The Electric Company (e.g. use of stock footage, puppetry, and clips of children being interviewed), parodying the format in a very adult-oriented manner under the slogan "Play School on Acid". In addition to general controversial comedy, it satirizes politics, religion, war, sex, and culture with black comedy.

Every episode begins with a disclaimer, accompanied by the sound of someone screaming "Don't eat my baby!", which reads:

WARNING

WONDER SHOWZEN CONTAINS OFFENSIVE, DESPICABLE CONTENT THAT IS TOO CONTROVERSIAL AND TOO AWESOME FOR ACTUAL CHILDREN. THE STARK, UGLY, PROFOUND TRUTHS WONDER SHOWZEN EXPOSES MAY BE SOUL CRUSHING TO THE WEAK OF SPIRIT. IF YOU ALLOW A CHILD TO WATCH THIS SHOW, YOU ARE A BAD PARENT OR GUARDIAN.

Here you have an amazing show. I've never laughed so hard watching something... and, at the same time, some moments were kinda creepy for me. It's an excellent mixture of satire and black humor.
PFFR should return to do something more serious on TV. It would be amazing.
