Latest DVD Buys

I'm not the biggest fan of fye, but they occasionally mange to have some pretty good deals doing on. Case in point, the two DVDs I bought home from them this week - Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time, and Animaniacs Vol. 3.

It astounds me how foolish Disney continues to be with it's properties. Kim Possible, one of the greatest western shows ever, and one of the best things that has ever had the Disney name attached to it, STILL has no season DVD sets in America. If you want your Kim fix, you either have to watch Toon Disney (or whatever the channel is called these days) or watch the episodes on YouTube. To this day, only a handful of episodes and both movies, the aforementioned Sitch in Time, and So the Drama are on DVD in the west. Regardless, it's nice to finally own A Sitch in Time. I'm hoping to get So the Drama as well. For now, I'm not holding my breath for season DVD sets.

Animanicas was a bit of a successor to Tiny Toon Adventures. I always liked Tiny Toons better, but I can't say Animaniacs isn't raw deal. The show had witty, clever writing that was fun for both kids and adults, the later half of the audience that may very well have gotten the best out of the show. This show was pretty famous for sneaking things past the censors. Some of it was subtle, but a lot of it was so blatantly obvious that you have to wonder if S&P ever saw the show or they were just asleep at the wheel. 

Anyhoo, Animanicas Vol. 3 is actually the first DVD of the series that I own. For some strange reason, it was on sale for $14.99 while other volumes were higher. But Animaniacs is the kinda show that you don't need to watch in order to appreciate it. Outside of the first episode, you can come into the series at any point and enjoy it. In the words of Yako, "Good night, everybody!"

I'm not a big fan of "Kim Possible", I find "American Dragon" to be a much better show cause I'm tired of the "Secret Super Spy" junk, especially since the organizations in thee shows are very easy to know what they do in the paper or through the internet, and all they do is waste valuable tax money on useless crap operations, KP is a good show, but not something I follow

Animaniacs is a truly good choice

Wow, I was away and didn't know you posted to entries here. Good to have you back
