Series: The Mr. Potato Head Show

He's got two eyes
He's got a nose
He's got two ears
Wherever he goes
When you see him comin', well everybody knows!
Mr. Potato Head! Mr. Potato Head! Mr. Potato Head...
Opening theme song

The Mr. Potato Head Show was a short-lived Puppet Show on Fox Kids based on Mr. Potato Head. It lasted 13 episodes before being canceled. Afterwards, a Direct-to-Video movie was produced, in which... well, the show gets canceled.

Yes, the show was sort of about Mr. Potato Head having a TV show. Potato Head battled with the TV execs (who are most certainly evil, and they won't let you forget it) many times, including in the movie.

The Mr. Potato Head Show provides examples of:

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Potato Bug.
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Sweet Potato to Mr. Potato Head.
  • Everything's Louder With Bagpipes: In "Aliens Dig Baloney", the Aliens that Baloney encounters make him listen to bagpipe music, much to his horror. They later regret this decision.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: "Godfrey Daniels! Not the censors again!"
  • Jaywalking Will Ruin Your Life: In an episode of Mr. Potato Head's in-universe show, where Mr. Potato Head and Baloney play cops, they arrest Sweet Potato for jaywalking.
  • Moral Guardians: During the filming of a monster-themed episode, the censors won't let Mr. Potato Head use a gun or drive a stake through someone's heart on a children's show. He improvises by serving yogurt with a silver spoon to the werewolf actor and driving a stake through the vampire actor's cape.
