Aside from Daria, Beavis and Butthead, and Sorority Life (remember that show?), Wonder Showzen was one of my favorite shows on MTV. This piece in particular will always stick with me. Not only was Clarence one of the most annoying puppets, maybe of all time, but he also taught us an important lesson – that it’s important to be patient. And sometimes, even when it’s really hard to be patient, for some reason – it’s still important to be patient… or maybe more importantly to try to find a way to escape from whatever is making you feel impatient .
And since I couldn’t find the video clip of Clarence talking to people about being patient, here’s a clip of the Beat Kids segment. Sing it with me! Kids on the beat, kids on the street – beat kids!
