YMMV / The Junior Christian Science Bible Lesson Program

Go To

  • Anvilicious: The numerous anti drug statements are about a subtle as a hammer blow to the head.
  • Awesome Music: Despite what initial impressions the show might have you believe, David Liebe Hart is quite the amazing songwriter.
  • Cult Classic: The show was an underground hit in L.A. for many years, but didn't enjoy any real recognition until it appeared on Charlie Brookers Screenwipe. (It also appeared in the "World's Dumbest TV Shows" episode of The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest....)

  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Chip the Black Boy, who went to have his own successful rap career. No, really (WARNING: both clips are heavy in Nightmare Fuel).
  • Misaimed Fandom: It's a Christian show with a heavy anti-drug sentiment aimed for kids. But because it's a public access show, it's doubtful many kids ever watched it. It likely was more popular with stoner types who would have had the endurance to sit through it and nutcases who could appreciate it as an artform.
  • Narm: Where does one even begin...
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: It's hard to imagine any child sitting through the lengthy opera singing and monotone Bible citations, even if they were sung by a blue raccoon with a pancake-flat head.
  • What Do You Mean It Wasnt Made On Drugs?
  • The Woobie:
    • Chip The Black Boy.
    • Liebe Hart himself. He reportedly lives in a small apartment, nearly lost his puppets due to a fire in his building, lost his wife (who subsequently became addicted to crack by another man) and barely has enough money to keep himself afloat, necessitating that he perform for donations in front of the Hollywood Bowl. Despite all this, he maintains a positive attitude about the world and his work.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: The show has been called high art which is merely designed to look like dreck.
