To produce and sell a television show featuring extremely low-budget puppets with an unscripted feel and awkward humor in 1997, well before things like YouTube and "Adult Swim" blew up, took an unlikely comedic duo. Childhood friends Liam Lynch and Matt Crocco were musicians first and produced comedy material for fun. That may be why the show continues to hold up as being so original, offbeat and with many of the funniest characters to appear during the late '90s on MTV. Sure, Sifl, Olly and their guests were all sock puppets, but they were so much more, especially the following six.
6. Tony Hawk
The Tony Hawk puppet, sporting the skate legend's brand logo Birdhouse, has to be included since he's the only celebrity guest "Sifl & Olly" had. He appeared during the third season, which originally ran online, when Olly wipes out on his skateboard and goes to the pearly gates of heaven. Hawk is there to hang with his old buddy St. Peter.
5. Precious Roy
A cockeyed green sock with wire rims and a bizarre personality that falls somewhere in between aging Black pimp and Jewish retiree, Precious Roy runs a home shopping network and employs Sifl & Olly as spokesmen. As crazy as the products are, Roy always seems crazier and never seems aware of what he's selling.
4. Sex Girl
The bustiest sock you've ever seen, Sex Girl's name says everything you need to know about her. She's a prostitute who randomly shows up during the show's Interview section to get busy with Sifl and Olly–-but never at the same time. Olly ends up going second and ruins the moment with such lines as, "Everything I'm about to do to you baby, I learned at SeaWorld."
3. Orgasm and G-Spot
The blingiest sock puppet buddies are Orgasm and his small sidekick, the hard-to-locate G-Spot. Sifl and Olly interview them about sex tips until they offend Orgasm by asking about multiple orgasms. It works out for Sifl and Olly in the end though, because, well, they get a freebie.
Straight-up badass Stealth is pierced multiple times and may be the first smoking sock puppet in history. Olly once dressed as beaver and drove a golf cart through Stealth's bar mitzvah, which is why the two have beef. That makes Stealth the toughest Jew since Fonzie.
Reportedly made from an inverted rubber mold for a Buddha figurine and an arm from a sweater, Chester isn't technically a sock puppet, but we've included him since someone with Chester's IQ may attempt to wear such a creation as a sock. Chester is Sifl and Olly's pothead roommate (sans the pot) and his absentminded banter/laughter gives the show many of its best moments.
