Go To
Stankervision was a short-lived sketch comedy created by Waco O'Guin and Roger Black that aired on MTV2. It was a televised repackaging of Waco and Roger's underground comedy "The Damn! Show". Stankervision began and ended in the year 2005. The show featured Bobby Possumcods, BoDean Lynn, Yucko the Clown, Inebriated the Koala and Regina Lynn. The former three made animated appearances in the better known Brickleberry, which was made by the same creators. A lot of jokes and characters you saw in Brickleberry were originally back in Stankervision.

Waco and Roger were still looking for a network to pick up Brickleberry when Stankervision came out. Waco stated in an interview given out by Animation World Network he came up with the idea for Brickleberry all the way back in 2003. In spite of Brickleberry's inability to debut in the 2000s decade, they were lucky to have even gotten Stankervision out on TV at all.

The show was enjoying high ratings at the time, but was cancelled due to problems with sponsors.



  • Abusive Parents: Some kid was given a card with his lunch that his mom packed. The card's cover said "To My Wonderful Son..." and when he opened it, the card said "I should have aborted you!"
  • The Alcoholic: Inebriated the Koala.
  • Art Shift: The show had both live-action segments and then there's the animated Inebriated the Koala - but the animation and drawings were very half-assed.
  • Bait-and-Switch: The Mallhark card commercials.
  • The Bully: Almost every character you see on the show qualifies, but Yucko the Clown really takes the cake.
  • Cain and Abel: Donnie is horribly abusive to his conjoined twin brother Ronnie.
  • Comically Small Bribe: After rounding up and hogtieing some poor fat guy like a little pig and then stripping him of all his clothes, Waco and Roger jeer at his humiliation then ask for his signature on a release form so that they can put that on TV. The fat guy goes berserk and attacks them until they offer him a free T-shirt (though it's bigger than Large, it's still too small for him) and so he agrees to sign their forms.
