A list of the prominent characters featured on the dark sketch comedy Wonder Showzen.

Puppets[edit]

Chauncey[edit]

Chauncey Darlington Butler, a furry yellow puppet, is more prominent than the other puppets, serving as host of the program and frequently addressing the child-filled audience. Chauncey is sarcastic, offensive and often displays deviant behavior such as violating Mother Nature's left-over private parts when she undergoes a sex change (Episode 105: Nature) or humping a copy of The Bible during a 19th-century trial (Episode 204: Justice) or even puking blood on Him (Episode 206: Cooperation). The "Chauncey" street stop in located in Brooklyn, on the MTA.

Chauncey's middle and last names may be a reference to the two-time Medal of Honor recipient Brigadier General Smedley Darlington Butler who wrote the famous 1935 anti-war book War Is a Racket.

Chauncey is voiced by Vernon Chatman.

Clarence[edit]

Clarence is a smooth blue felt puppet with a high-pitched childish voice. His videos include him talking to the people of New York City, constantly trying to push them over the edge. His rants are continuous as he repeats everything the other person says. He also asks or says very irrelevant questions or comments to people. There is typically one Clarence movie per episode. One possible exception is the 1st season episode "Patience", which features a lengthy film in the first half of the episode of Clarence asking people to look into the camera and say "Hey kids! It's important to be patient", and repeatedly interrupting them. In the new second half of the episode, titled "Speed", there is a short clip of a Clarence movie, depicting Clarence asking a toothless mason "What do you eat?". The entirety of the second season finale was dedicated to him as he asked New Yorkers to make compelling television, before "committing suicide" at the conclusion, being thrown from a helicopter into the depths of the ocean.

This puppet is voiced by Vernon Chatman.

Him[edit]

Him is based on a Gyro meat cone. Extremely dim-witted and venal, Him, speaks only in grammatically incorrect fragmented sentences. Voiced by John Lee.

Wordsworth[edit]

A red worm-like creature with two arms and an exposed brain. Voiced by John Lee

Sthugar[edit]

Supposedly made of cotton candy, Sthugar has a large fang protruding from her upper lip. She first appeared as an unnamed female pink puppet character in "Space". The character got a more prominent role in later episodes and was given a name in the 2nd season. Voiced by Alyson Levy.

Letter N, Letter S and Letter i[edit]

Voiced by Vernon Chatman, Letter N is a self-destructive personification of the letter, who was depressed and had sex with the Letter S, producing a small child, Letter i, who only appeared in the first episode. The three letters are shown together at one point, spelling out "SiN".

Letter P[edit]

Appears in Episode 201, "Body." She is berated by the main four puppets for her obesity and receives liposuction.

Letter J and Number 8[edit]

Letter J is a male Hasidic Jew and Number 8 is a male Muslim Arab who become sexual lovers in a Romeo-and-Juliet-style story involving a schism between Letters and Numbers in the Season 1 episode, "Diversity."

Middle America[edit]

Appears in Episode 203, "Knowledge." Middle America is shaped like a map of the red states (i.e. the states whose electoral votes went to George W Bush) in the 2004 United States presidential election. Middle America is dim-witted and arrogant and is a caricature of George W Bush. He is the creative force behind Horse Apples.

A.P. Gibralter[edit]

A large, red, multi-eyed news reporter. He usually begins his segment with the tagline "Breaking News at this hour!" Voiced by Vernon Chatman.

Mother Nature[edit]

Mother Nature appears in Episode 105 and is the only human-looking puppet in the show. In episode 105 she appears with a beard as she is in the process of having a "home sex change" operation, which causes various aspects of nature to exhibit strange phenomena. She dies while performing self-surgery but is brought back to life after Chauncey, who had been watching Mother Nature perform surgery, fornicates with her "lady parts" which she had deposited in a bin. At the end of the episode, Mother Nature is once again a woman.

Bootleg Puppets[edit]

Appear in Episode 206, "Cooperation." After Clarence kills C. Larence (his bootleg counterpart), a war between the original puppets and the bootlegs breaks out. Chauncey's bootleg counterpart originally appeared in the original pilot which was the pitch video to USA Network
