If *I* had a network, Sifl & Olly would be on it all the time.
16 September 1999 | by StudentDriverSee all my reviews

I beg anyone and everyone who either worked on this show, or works for MTV- *please* bring it back, or release a set of videos!

*Ahem* One of the saving graces of MTV last year was this whacked-out sock-puppet show; I figure if MTV can't play music videos anymore, this is the next best thing.

Alas- like the State, Sifl & Olly apparently appealed to too few teenagers to be worth carrying; it hasn't been on the air for a while now.

The whole show smacked of what a couple of guys would do if they had access to a public access station, and a bag of pot. I can't really explain how the results would be appealing, but they were- this is one of the few shows that has ever made me cry because I was laughing so hard.

"Suckers!", the theme song, the name "Chester", drawings of the characters, Chester's voice- all of these became catch-phrases or common occurrences at work with my friends. We'd print out signs saying "Buy my waffles! SUCKERS!" and put them up where customers would see them (usually over a picture of Shel Silverstein, but that's another story). The guys behind Sifl & Olly probably didn't intend it this way, but they made out lives a lot more bearable.

The show needs to come back.
