Humor shows with a strong, repetitive, almost trance-like audio mnemonic, slowish pace, and surrealist humor?

Watching the first season of Look Around You this evening, I realized that I really enjoyed comedy series that employ a repetitive, hypnotic, audio mnemonic and curious pacing. Space Ghost: Coast to Coast is a great example of this. Wonder Showzen. The first season of Ren & Stimpy.

I'm familiar with the newer Adult Swim shows, none of which seem to do what I'm looking for as well as those shows mentioned above. Any suggestions?

omg people already beat me to Jam. But I guess I can still recommend Blue Jam to you, the show's precursor. Audio only and harder to find, but still a wonderful example of that loopy anaesthetized vibe I think you're describing. Oo vudge welcome.

Jam looks great from the Youtube clips. I can't wait.

MrMoonPie, Fishing With John is a quite excellent recommendation -- but unfortunately, I had just managed to purge the theme song from my head this past year, and now you've got it started again. Oh well.

It sounds like you would enjoy Sunset Television

Snuff Box, with Rich Fulcher and Matt Berry of Mighty Boosh (and other) fame, is both surreal and repetitive with various sonic hooks.

Oops, missed that By The Grace of God had already mentioned it.
