I'm a fan.

It's hilarious IMO.

Little Cheney is the best character.

Quoting USAFHummer (Thread starter):
"Lil' Bush": Hilarious Or Stupid?

A bit of both, I think. Like the other Bush satire that aired prior to 9/11 (I think it was called "That's My Bush") there are some funny bits, but some of the humor is a bit forced. I think GWB will go down in history as the only President that inspired not one but two parody TV shows that both play on the perception that the sitting President is a dimwit.



It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

That's My Bush blew this animated show out of the water. It was great.
This one is good, but nowhere near TMB.

Like...the promo I just saw a few minutes ago totally cracked me up...its Lil' Bush meeting Lil' Tony Blair, and Bush notes the accent and says "So where are you from? Narnia?"

I watched the newest episode last night... It was fairly funny... Plus the characters all look really funny, especially little Condoleeza Rice with her braces.

I'm optomistic about the show. Let the season finish, see what happens...

Sometimes I'm in the mood for really stupid comedy - but I just couldn't get into this. I thought the jokes were weak - and I get really sick of that impersonation of an voice that I don't like to begin with.

What, everyone didn't know this?  Smile
I absolutely love this show, it may not be the most politically correct show but it is in good company with South Park.

It is the same old Bush hating cliches. But I do like the concept of the show.

It is fine to make fun of the President, it is almost expected. I just want to see something original- Not something I could take the rantings of Superfly, Falcon84 and a few others from here and twist into a TV show.

I really think Bush has achieved a rare honor.. Not just one show making fun of him being stupid, but I think this is at least the second one. There was a short lived series I can't remember the name of, also on comedy central. If I am remembering correctly.

I don't believe it's right to make fun of a sitting President. While I'm sure he's not the smartest man in Washington, I believe a certain amount of repsect should be held for the Office.

I know, I'm being a spoil-sport, so flame me, but my immediate reaction to it is a bad one.

It's all been done before. Bush is stupid, we get it. I'm all for making fun of him, but it's done so much, there's not really any originality left to it.

Letterman's "Great moments in U.S. Presidential speeches" still cracks me up though, and he's been doing that for a couple years now.

Outsatnding comment.

If one wonders WHY so many have no respect for anything, go listen to Chevy Chase drop the "F-bomb" when talking about GWB at some event a few years back, or listen to Rosie, or Babs, or Whoopie spout their crap about someone who's the leader of the free world. Yeah, we have a right to "say" it, but I think those in the media need to keep it toned down. There are movies/TV shows I will not watch, because I am sick and tired of being beaten over the head about how dumb some folks think our President happens to be.

Now, back on topic...I laughed at the 1st "Lil Bush" a few weeks back. It could have been much worse. Jeb is a lot smarter than they portray him. And "Lil Cheney" IS hilarious.

Hey, I just noticed something in the most recent episode- during the scene when Lil Kim Jong Il took Lil Bush's Game Boy, there's other kids standing around, and they're all the major 2008 presidential candidates!

I recognized Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards... Honestly, I think I saw a version of Michael Moore too! Big grin

I have only seen a little bit, and at first I was very skeptical, but from what I have seen I think that it is a funny show.

I think it is a stupid show. The "jokes" are not funny and everything is a re-hashing of what I dislike about the guy in the first place. Not worth my time.

Where were these people during the Clinton impeachment and when everyone was making fun of him? What's good for the goose....

What a pile of crap. I hadn't seen any of the show (other than the promos) until watching the clip USAFHummer posted. Lil' Cheney was funny, but the rest of it sucked.

I'm not a fan of Bush by any means, but didn't we do this a couple years ago with That's My Bush?

Not that funny. The show tries a little too hard, but doesn't quite get it. Some of the humor is a little desperate.

South Park remains the best cartoon on TV.

LIL Bush is sad ,poorly written and pretty much just plain predictable. The show really has little imagination , you could get pretty much any deuch bag at Starbucks to wright it.

I had to have that one explaned to me. Where I grew up, our school district had three sizes of busses. The smallest (short busses) were used for low-density, rural routes. Everyone rode the same busses. I never knew anything about "the short bus" until recently!

25 Graphic : It has its moments (Camp Al Quaeda, Darth Vader is Lil Cheney's dad). I'll show respect for his office when HE shows respect for his office.
26 JBo : Like most other "original" programming Comedy Central comes up with. For every quality program they have, like South Park, there are 30 or 50 program
