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 deficate 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 deficate on the flag. See more »
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 »

At the end of each episode's credits under "Special Thanks," there is at least one random name that had nothing to do with the show. This is pointed out by David Cross in the DVD commentary for the first episode. See more »
If you want to see one of the most groundbreaking skit comedy shows ever, look no further than Mr. Show. Wow. Each episode is a work of art, every skit amazingly flows into the next. Filmed skits, flow into live skits, back and forth... absolutely amazing. Also, if you want to see some great character work, look no further. Bob Odenkirk and David Cross are some of todays best comedic character actors', and the supporting cast is unbelievable. Also the fact that it was on HBO, the show was able to get away with more. Its so great. They only made 30 episodes, and now they are on hiatus while filming the First "Mr. Show" movie. What a great show.
