    "Lil' Bush," like so much on Comedy Central other than "The Daily Show"/"Colbert Report" hour, possesses all the finesse of Gallagher with a watermelon.
  2. If "South Park" traffics in occasionally brilliant satire, "Lil' Bush" is far more juvenile humor.
  3. "Lil' Bush" is more than a lil' awful.
  4. 40
    The mildly amusing animated series would have packed more of a punch back when Americans were still a little shocked about Bush's seeming arrested development, but these days it comes off as merely facile.

    Lil' Bush is too lame to be taken seriously, or, more important, taken humorously.

    Little of it adds up to much of anything but foul-minded mischief.
  7. Some of the sharpest political satire on the small screen.

    A juvenile pile of manure. [15 Jun 2007, p.74]
  9. 20
    "Lil' Bush" aims for the political satire of "The Daily Show" and the crude-but-smart humor of "South Park" but fails to live up to both standard-bearers.

    It is kind of sad, actually. it is so easy to make fun of the president (see Daily Show/Colbert Report), but this show fails at doing so. It is kind of sad, actually. it is so easy to make fun of the president (see Daily Show/Colbert Report), but this show fails at doing so. Their juvenile humor isn't funny or sophisticated. Think of a combination of the worst aspects of South Park and The Daily Show, and you get this: a bunch of crap that the producers hope will be popular because of the unpopularity of the president.
