Elton vs. Simon is a German re-make of the Canadian show Kenny vs. Spenny.[1]

Plot[edit]

Like Kenny and Spenny, Elton and Simon are friends who share an apartment and fight each other in unusual competitions. The winner of a competition is allowed to think out some kind of unpleasant task called Bestrafung (Punishment) the loser has to perform. In Kenny vs. Spenny, this part is called "Humiliation".

Seasons 1 and 2[edit]

Seasons 1 and 2 of Elton vs. Simon were very similar to the original format Kenny vs. Spenny. It had almost the same opening credits (only the heads of Kenny and Spenny were replaced with those of Elton and Simon) and most of the competition ideas were adopted from the original series. Like this, two seasons with a total of 15 episodes were produced and aired in 2005 and 2006.

Season 3[edit]

In 2008 a third season was produced. The concept of the series was slightly changed and it was renamed Elton vs. Simon - Die Live-Show. Instead of having one competition per episode, Elton and Simon had to do several mini-competitions. The first one to win four competitions was the overall winner. Some of the competitions and the punishment were performed in front of an audience.
