The eponymous name was also the guiding principle of the concept of the series: Tohuwabohu is a giant puddle, amoi said that must be . In each of the good half-hour episodes of the series viewers are apparently confused, Electoral aimlessly in sequence and in quick succession brief Einspieler presented.

These are skits, played jokes, outtakes, slip of the tongue, TV parodies, musical interludes, songs and pieces of music that act like music videos and are sung lip-synchronously by the performers, corruptions of well-known song, film and book titles. The series uses some concepts and jokes from the series Kottan determined, which was produced from 1976 to 1983 . The series was also accompanied by scraps of words thrown in ad hoc, for example the exclamation "Aus!", Which was mostly presented by Franz Suhrada in combination with a typical hand movement (open hand closed into a fist).
