Product Description

ABC’s popular Sunday night comedy series America’s Funniest Home Videos is now in its 16th season. Candid kiddy capers and outrageous animal antics beg big laughs on this 3-DVD box set, sure to appeal to entertainment consumers of all kinds.

This second issue from a series of AFV DVD releases features episode specials from the original and much-loved host, Bob Saget, and from today’s successful Emmy award-winning host, Tom Bergeron.

DISC 1-AFV LOOKS AT KIDS AND ANIMALS: There is no greater entertainment than watching the uninhibited behavior of members of the animal kingdom. Blend together with clips of candid kiddie capers. Add a generous amount of Bob Saget, and you’ve got the recipe for a thousand guaranteed laughs.

BONUS EPISODE: 1997 $100,000 Season Finale: Bob Saget shows us the funniest clips of the year.

DISC 2-ALL ANIMAL EXTRAVAGANZA This AFV special is side-splittingly hilarious. Host Tom Bergeron takes us through years’ worth of the very funniest videos featuring our fabulous furry four-legged friends, with segments like, "You’ve Got A Bad Dog When…," "Cats Running Into Walls," "Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats" and "Cat Talk." Also getting into the comedy act are birds, giraffes, rhinos and even funny bugs. So curl up on the couch with your own menagerie. Even your pets will laugh.

BONUS EPISODE: 2004 $100,000 Season Finale: Tom Bergeron guides us through the selection of the funniest clip of the season.

DISC 3 – BATTLE OF THE BEST - Two-Hour Special Join celebrity panelists Coolio, Kathy Griffin, Martin Mull and Picabo Street as they pick their favorite videos from the first 12 years of America’s Funniest Home Videos. What clip would you select as the Best of the Best? The Booger Boy? The beer keg explosion? The dog with the barking butt? The falling nun? The bucket-headed woman? No matter who you choose, you’re sure to grin, giggle and guffaw all the way through this two-hour special.

This three-disk compilation includes as many home videos of kids and animals as you could ask for, including baboons breaking into a car, a frog climbing on a baby's head, a dog peeing on a bride's gown, several videos of kangaroos and wallabies kicking people in the groin (there's a whole subgenre of people being hit or bitten in the groin by balls, goats, geese, etc.), an orangutan trying to tongue-kiss a giggling girl, a bicyclist being pursued by a giraffe, and so much more. And let's face it, lowbrow though it may be, a lot of these videos are funny; when a cat leaps out of the bushes like an attack commando and lands smack on a toddler's face, it's just funny. It's also worth noting that America's Funniest Home Videos is the most racially integrated show on television, thanks to the democracy of home-video technology.

Aside from the sheer volume of video clips, The Best of Kids & Animals contrasts the styles of former host Bob Saget and current host Tom Bergeron. Saget was a deeply conflicted man: In his eyes lurks a mixture of self-loathing that he'd stooped so low and glee that he was being paid to do something so completely effortless. Bergeron, on the other hand, is at one with his job; it's as if he can't imagine a more worthy task than introducing a video in which his head has been superimposed over that of a man bitten on the hindparts by a camel. On the Battle of the Best, in which the best videos of the past 12 years (though there are some excellent ones from the 2004 finale, included on the All Animal Extravaganza disk, that somehow didn't make the cut--oh, the injustice of the world), Bergeron moderates a panel of D-list celebrities with Buddha-like serenity, introducing a dog with a barking butt as if it were a presidential address. Inner peace or amoral cynicism? Decide for yourself. --Bret Fetzer

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay - more clips, but less dialogue/music please February 26, 2008
My kids, 3 and 5, enjoy a lot of the silly clips that they see on AFV and I purchased this set for them. Surprising to me, they have not shown great interest in these dvds. I think one of the issues is that the dvds include MUCH of the dialogue by the hosts, including the AFV theme music as they go to AND come back from commercial breaks. The music and dialogue combined contribute to the majority of time in these videos. In short, if you were to actually calculate the amount of time devoted to clips, it really doesn't amount to a whole lot more than you would catch in a typical episode on TV. I guess I/we expected to see a greater compilation of clips given the longevity of the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for seniors battling dementia. July 24, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this for my father who is suffering with dementia. He laughed hard like he used to, tears in his eyes. He can watch it over and over and be happy which in turn makes us happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to have in your funny dvd collections! December 27, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a family gift for our family which includes a 7 yr. son and 10 yr. daughter. To get three dvd's in regular size dvd cases is nice, compared to the flimsy clear cases you usually get in a collection pack. I consider it a great investment (I paid just $15.99)as it's one of those dvd's you just pull it out when you feel like having a great laugh together. Now, I will say, the AFV Looks at Kids & Animals with Bob Saget was not very funny. We hardly laughed in this one, including my kids. Bob had some really corny fillers in between the videos and I mean corny - SentarBoy? - Half boy, half animal? I would have been very disappointed if I had just bought this video as even the clips aren't all that funny. The other two in my opinion make it up. The Battle of the Best has some funny dialogs between the celebrities (beware of the phrase using "hell" that is used by one if this is offensive to you. This has some screamingly funny clips. The clips are longer too which I like. The All Animal Extravaganza is very funny too - several clips you may have already seen on youtube. This has Tom Bergeron as a host and he makes everything funny in my opinion anyway. Whether you have kids or not, if you like AFV, this will be great to add to your collection.

It was very funny to watch this collection of selected videos, despite some of them are repeated from America's Funniest Home Video Volume 1. I advice to watch them in family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Laughter Therapy February 2, 2006
America's Funniest Home Videos presents The Best of Kids and Animals, the All Animal Extravaganza and Battle of The Best all in one set. The animals take center stage as a "deer devil" bounds across traffic and girls scream as the attack of the miniature lizard is filmed at home. The cats who talk and sing seem to be the highlight of this collection. "Smitten with a Kitten" is adorable, but the Swimming Cat is what truly made me almost fall off the couch laughing. Karate Cat is pure laughter therapy and the four giggling babies are adorable. Birds, giraffes and rhinos also get in on the comedy act, but cats and dogs are the real feature of this three-disc set.

My daughter loves AFV so I bought Battle of the Best and Kids and Animals. Battle of the Best was much better. She watched it over and over, this one she watched only once.
