The show was canceled by the Fox Network after six episodes. In February 2004, Comedy Central bought the rights to the series and planned on airing all 10 produced episodes, four of which never aired on Fox. The deal also included the option to produce new episodes. But after showing five of the previously aired episodes, Comedy Central pulled it from the schedule. The show was a target of protests throughout its run from Asian-Americans who felt the show portrayed demeaning stereotypes of Asians. These protests succeeded in getting many major sponsors to pull their advertising from the show. G4 began airing the reruns along with the original British version in 2006. See more »

Another one of Fox's jems that they threw away because there idiots. I love Banzai! My favorite was Mr. Shakehands Man! He would always be shaking people's hands! His record was a little over a minute and a half. There were tons of funny sketches like that Harry Potter one. That one made so far from making sense that it was hilarious! I also liked that crazy host's voice. Totally Japannese! Why does Fox have to be so stupid and cancel every new good show that they have to replace it with some boring and annoying reality show? This show should have gone over to WB. They rarely throw out shows. Bring back Mr. Shakehands Man and all the other funny sketches!
