The Idiot Box is a variety show of sorts about a trailer park full of rednecks. The main story is centered around a guy named Mort. Mort’s story is that he got laid off, and his wife Candy thinks he is just a lazy bum who wants to sit around and watch TV all day. So she leaves him for her divorce lawyer taking Mort for everything he had; his truck, his last $800 and his most prized possession, his TV. Mort's just sitting outside the courthouse when Candy drops him a dollar and says, “Here’s some bus money. Don’t say I never gave ya nothin”. Instead of taking the bus home, Mort decides to buy a lottery ticket, and wins $60,000,000 dollars. So, The Idiot Box is basically episodes about Mort's World and the TV Shows that he watches.
