Mr Show was a highly influential sketch comedy show starring and written by Bob Odenkirk and David Cross. The show aired on HBO for four seasons in the mid-to-late 90's. It is noted for its edgy, cynical, and oftentimes cruel sense of humor as well as the way the sketches would transition into each other, much like an episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus. The show filled its ranks with performers and writers from the alternative comedy scene, and served as a career springboard for many up-and-coming comedians. The show never obtained a great deal of popularity, and was eventually dumped into a poor time slot before getting canceled. However, the show earned a loyal cult following and has proved to be one of the more influential comedy shows in recent decades.After its cancellation, the show was spun off into the feature film Run Ronnie Run, starring one of its recurring characters. The film spent years in Development Hell before getting dumped straight to video.

Global Ignorance: In the pilot episode, David reveals that Bob believes that there are only five U.S. states, and one of them is called "Chim-Cham." In another episode, a group of kids on an MTV show claim to have traveled all over the world, showing a crayon map of the places they have gone. The "world" is in the shape of the continental United States, divided up into countries such as "Germany" and "Europe."

Missing Episode
 Mr. Show / int_1249bb5d
comment
Missing Episode: Parodied. Bob and David bill the beginning of one of their episodes as their "Lost Episode," so they can trot it out years later to much fanfare. At the end of the episode, they have all the cast members say "goodbye" to the tape of the episode, then give it to their security guard so he can lose it. He tosses the tape into outer space in a 2001 parody.

With Friends Like These: The Intervention sketch. When one of them has a problem that needs to be discussed, most try to come up with a one-liner taking shots at said victim. And all of them are annoyed with Bob having interventions, to the point where they resolve that by killing him. Bob still tries to help them with that plan.

comment
Another ad campaign for Mayostard, a bottled mayo-and-mustard combo, goes to absurd lengths to suggest that getting sandwich spreads from two different bottles is an unbearable waste of time and effort. Then a competing product, Mustardayonnaise, enters the picture. Then the post-credits gag introduces Mustmayostardayonnaise, because having to apply Mayostard and Mustardayonnaise is such an enormous time sink, it will cause you to miss your daughter growing up, graduating college, and then growing older than you and dying.

Brick Joke: The "package" at the beginning and end of "Rudy Will Await Your Foundation." A lot of the episodes contain jokes which seem to tail off without an ending, only for the ending to burst into another sketch later in an episode. At the opening of one episode, David Cross grabs a banana and jokes, "Hey, who wants a banana?" as a pointless aside. At the end of the episode, some space apes watch the opening and freak out when David waves the banana around.

There Are No Good Executives. Bit of a recurring theme in "If You're Going To Write a Comedy Scene, You're Going to Have Some Rat Feces in There." Particularly the "Downsizing" sketch.

Strawman Product
 Mr. Show / int_599e32f4
comment
Strawman Product: Used a number of times in various parody ads. In one ad war, a mom-and-pop grocery store is repeatedly slandered by a massive corporate chain, which insinuates that rats infest the produce and your children will get kidnapped by white slavers. Another ad campaign for Mayostard, a bottled mayo-and-mustard combo, goes to absurd lengths to suggest that getting sandwich spreads from two different bottles is an unbearable waste of time and effort. Then a competing product, Mustardayonnaise, enters the picture. Then the post-credits gag introduces Mustmayostardayonnaise, because having to apply Mayostard and Mustardayonnaise is such an enormous time sink, it will cause you to miss your daughter growing up, graduating college, and then growing older than you and dying.

Title Drop: The title of each episode is actually a line from the show that the writers select on a whim. However, sometimes the line is from a sketch that gets cut from the actual episode. The show also uses its own name very often due to its self-referential comedy.

He later co-hosts an Olympics event featuring other leaders of newly-formed countries.

No Ending: A lot of sketches on their own are like this, as all the sketches (much like Monty Python's Flying Circus) are linked together—the end of some sketches is the beginning of the next sketch. As comedy sketches are often hard to end on a high note, this arguably helps the show.

Biting-the-Hand Humor: The commercials that Bob and David made to advertise their new time slot of Mondays at midnight criticize the shittiness of the slot. In one commercial, David asserts that the show will try to infiltrate the homes of Americans while they aren't watching. "Mondays at midnight! A busy work night when everyone's asleep. Who watches television on Mondays at midnight? Exactly!" In another, Bob and David try to decide when they'll get together to create Mr Show. David suggests Monday at midnight, and Bob likes it, because that way it will be "just for us!"

Metaphorgotten: In the Lifeboat sketch, one of the audience members from the Jerry Springer-esque show (who's lost at sea with them) tries to tell everyone how to handle their situation. He tells the pregnant woman "You need to respect the baby, because life is precious, and god, and the bible." Also the episode's Title Drop. Possibly also

Finger in the Mail: Parodied in a sketch in which a kidnapper calls the wealthy father of the boy he's kidnapped and demands to know whether he received his son's toe in the mail to prove his serious intent. Except he forgot to mail the toe. And he appears to have accidentally removed his own toe, instead of one of the kid's. And he's already released the kid. And the police are able to track his call while he's dithering about all of this. The kidnapper ends up trying to sell the father his own toe for $50.00. Obviously, he's not a very effective kidnapper.

Breaking the Fourth Wall: Just about every other sketch. Each episode begins with the hosts addressing the audience, which quickly gets sidetracked into the first sketch. In the first episode of the series, David transitions almost seamlessly from his dialogue in a sketch to start bitching about the poor location that HBO gave them to tape their show, then transitions right back into his sketch dialogue.

comment
Too Incompetent to Operate a Blanket: The mayostard/mustardayonnaise featured a series of ads for products combining mayo and mustard in a single jar, like Hellman's Dijonnaise. In the end, a guy is shown missing out on the important moments in his life because the process of spreading mustard then mayonnaise was simply too time consuming. The first GloboChem sketch features Janeane Garofalo as a woman who simply can't organize the bags in her kitchen, shouting, "Help me!" at the camera. The solution is "bag hutch," a box to put bags in. The writers had to change the name of the product because "bag box" was already the name of a product that did the exact same thing.

Lie Detector: The subject of a season 3 sketch. Odenkirk plays a character subject to one of these. At first he's asked standard questions ("Have you ever drank alcohol to excess?" "Have you ever taken an illegal drug?"), but then he's asked even more outlandish and improbable questions ("Have you ever killed a man . . . with your mind?"). He always answers "Yes" to every question, with the machine's silence indicating he's telling the truth.

Younger Than They Look
 Mr. Show / int_ea8e6a65
comment
Younger than They Look: Several of the cast members, most look about their age, if not slightly older (some are Older Than They Look nowadays). None of the main cast was born before the 60s, and the show aired from 95-98.

Dawson Casting: In-universe example: Three parents host a show called "No Adults Allowed" in which they play teenagers talking about all the things they should/shouldn't be doing. They then accuse the "real" teenager who won't go along with their show, accusing their generation of being slackers.

 Mr. Show / int_f970768
comment
Overly Long Gag: The Everest sketch involves a character repeatedly falling into some shelves and knocking over his mother's thimble collection, again and again and again. In the commentary, the cast recalls how agonizing it was to reset the stage each time. "Legend of the Third Wheel" has one with David Cross's song Change for a Dollar

The Cat Came Back
 Mr. Show / int_f9a482ea
comment
The Cat Came Back: A sketch directed by David in the finale. Two friends who haven't seen each other a while, after having met at a bar, say their goodbyes to each other, but unintentionally keep running into each other on their way home, much to their irritation. Once Jay doesn't run into Bob, he realizes something is wrong. It turns out Bob somehow died that night.

The Smurfette Principle
 Mr. Show / int_fcb92936
comment
The Smurfette Principle: Pretty bad about this. Jill is the only main female cast member in all seasons, the rest of the (arguably supporting) female cast being a bit more spread out: Mary Lynn (first two seasons), Brett (some second, more of third and fourth), Karen (the third and fourth seasons), Sarah (some third season, less of the first and second), and Becky (fourth season). Splitsider wrote an article on these cast members and their lesser role than the male actors. Brought up within the show. Jill accuses Bob and David of running "a boys' club" saying "boys write the show, boys get all the best parts" which leads into a sketch about "Mr. Show Boys' Club" in which girls are included . . . to watch the boys do everything they're left out of. Even couples dancing.
