Fun collection of episodes from one of Nickelodeon's best shows. Melissa Joan Hart did an excellent job portraying Clarissa. The show had a wit and irony about it that I loved. Also loved the way Clarissa dressed, her unique fashion sense and how she dealt with all the problems she had as a teenager in a funny way that gave advice at the same time. Theres 2 disks in this set-

Disc One Season One


1.Clarissa's Revenge- Ferguson brings Clarissa's training bra to school. Clarissa plots to get revenge with Sam's help.

2.School Picture- Clarissa wants to express herself and her individuality but her mother wants her to dress more conservative or ( dweeby) for picture day.

3.No TV- Mother Janet makes a( no tv for the week ) rule. Rest of family stoops to desperate measures to catch a glimpse of their favorite TV show.

4.Urge To Drive- To earn money to buy a used car clarrisa takes to selling Christmas Cards in July.

5.Clarissa network news- Clarissa wants to be the next Jane Pauley. Mom is having a life crisis.

6.Haunted House- Clarissa's aunt is visiting and she pretends the house is haunted hoping her aunt will leave early. Turns out Aunt is a fan of the supernatural.

7.The Bully- Ferguson is being nice and has Clarissa very concerned.

Disc Two

1.New Edition- Clarissas parents want to have another baby. Ferguson and Clarissa hatch a plot to convince their parents it would be a bad idea.

2.Brain Drain- Ferguson scores high on an IQ test and convinces himself he's a genius. Now hes out to conquer the game show world!

3.Clarissa makes a cake- Clarissa and Sam set out to bake a cake for the parents anniversery. Watch Out!

Needless to say, this was a smart show for kids back in the good days of Nickelodeon when they had more live-action shows before Nicktoons took over. All 13 original episodes are present and in great quality.

Now for the surprises. When this set first came out a few weeks ago, we all assumed that the original opening sequence was still not intact, based on a quick preview of the DVDs. But then once you watch everything more closely, you'll find that the last episode on the set ("Sick Days") has the ORIGINAL opening intact! Nickelodeon deleted this sequence in around 1993 and replaced it with the one we all know where she repeatedly attempts to write her name on the screen. It was never seen again until now when they released the show on DVD. It might have been unintentional, but we can call this as somewhat of an "easter egg."

Another surprise is that Nickelodeon included a handful of their early 1990s Nick ID promo shorts (those 10 second clips they used to play before a show would start). Amazing Nickelodeon thought of that idea. With these surprises and releasing the "Nick Rewind" line of DVDs, there may be hope for more! Lets all get together in a circle, hold hands, bend our heads and close our eyes, and pray for future releases of Nick classics like You Can't Do That on Television, Hey Dude, Salute Your Shorts, Are You Afraid of the Dark, etc.

Current and future releases from this new Rewind Collection that Nickelodeon is releasing deserves its own locked and lighted display case that will stand about 10 feet tall in the rooms of many people who just can't grow up (just like me) and can't let Classic Nickelodeon go.

I encourage everybody that ever watched and loved these shows to buy them as soon as they are released because if they sell well, (according to Nickelodeon is going to release other shows (beginning with Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Salute Your Shorts and You Can't Do That On Television). Other future releases I'm personally hoping for will be Welcome Freshmen, Hey Dude, The Secret World of Alex Mack, Doug, Rocko's Modern Life, All That (the original cast), Kenan & Kel, well, you Get The Picture (that show too!)

To put it simply, I would personally spend all of my life savings and risk not being able to go to work for a month because I have no gas from the money I spent on every show that ever aired on Nickelodeon (up to Figure It Out), after that, nothing does it for me.

Yep, Clarissa's coming to DVD. So, let's all wait until May 17th (which is now 2 very long months away) for this beautiful piece of angel exalted glory to be released.

And so, we wait...

Forget everything that you've seen on Nickelodean in the last six or seven years, and take a remarkable journey into what Nick used to be: a classic sitcom. Memories stand in my mind of a happier time, when "Are You Afraid Of The Dark?" was still showing new episodes and Lori Beth was still hitting the cocunts and giving us Vital Information on "All That." And somewhere in this brain of mine, I remember "Clarissa." A show about nothing that became a something in short time. This first season introduces us to the Darling family and, like most first season's, it starts off rocky but smoothes on through the next few years. Now, I can say "Clarissa" was not my all time favorite show, but the reason I am excited about this set is because it shows what might be in the not-so-distant future. However, on the whole, I think Paramount (our new-found leader in this TV-On-DVD obsessed world) has presented a great set that is easy to use and presents everything in a nice, orderly fashion. The mini-cases, which are now customary in these DVD sets, show descriptions for the episodes and features, and while the menus may be devoid of motion or special effects, they present to us the DVD's contents in a way that makes it easy to use. All in all, this set is a box of anticipation for what

Paramount's <-Rewind Collection my be sending our way in the future.

No Season Two
you know, I don't know who is to blame here, whether it be Viacom or Nick, either way I'm pissed. It makes me mad that my parent's generation is getting to relive their favorite tv show moments (I've even seen strange and unimportant dvd releases from shows in the 70s and 80s). And yet, here we... Read More
