The Sifl and Olly Show is a show about 2 sock puppets named Sifl and Olly who run a low-budget TV show out of their apartment. The duo host a variety of segments throughout the show. It's usually referred to as the lowest-rated program to ever air on MTV.
Calls from the Public - Sifl and Olly would take calls, either with a question or comment; from their fans, landlord, or even Olly's mother.
Interview Time - The interviews rarely went without a hitch. Usually Sifl had forgotten to book the star or spent all the money on some lame scheme or product. The interviews then were either substituted with another lesser interviewee or Olly would dress up as the person.
Rock Facts - Sifl and Olly would ask a question, either before commercial or during the show pertaining to rock history. The answers were usually made up and non-sensical, but Olly made it clear that Bjork was off limits.
Rock! - Pretty much self explanatory, Sifl and Olly would break out in song.
Precious Roy - In order to help finance the show, Sifl and Olly would sell merchandice that Precious Roy himself made. Olly would go crazy during his sales-pitch. They would then take calls from people who have already bought the products. The segment would end with Precious Roy making a comment on the item, but due to his loss of senility, he usually says something totally out of the blue.
A Moment with Chester - Chester, Sifl and Olly's friend, would come on and do an interview.
Letters to Chester - As a follow up to 'A Moment With Chester,' they introduced this new segment. In it, Sifl & Olly read the letters and Chester responded to them.
It's Almost the End of the Show - The show usually wrapped up with Sifl and Olly doing a musical number.
During the second season of the show, MTV edited down some of the episodes and inserted music videos. During the videos Sifl, Olly, and Chester would pop onto the screen doing some dance or gag. Pretty unproductive.
The episodes are titled after the opening scene. If there is none, it's named after the first Chester scene… Expand

Feb 17, 2014This show was awesome! When new episodes premiered it played at a seriously obscure time slot...which was completely appropriate for the content. It's not for everyone, which is why it only lasted 2 seasons, but if you're into it you'll LOVE it! Breathing life into inanimate objects for interviews (eg, an atom, planet Mars, the Internet) and the crazy products they'd come up with for Precious Roy (eg, black hole vacuum, bottomless pools, bigfoot birdfeeder) had me rolling. I can't get over all the drug and prostitute jokes. Lot's of fun.… Expand
