Product Description

Mighty Boosh, The: Special Edition DVD [1-3]

Come with us now on a journey through time and space to the world of theMighty Boosh. Visit Bob Fossil's Zooniverse where you'll meet Howard Moon (jazz maverick), Vince Noir (king of the mods) and Naboo (the enigma). Sit back and strap yourself in coz the Boosh is loose and it's comin' at ya like a flannel.


Come along for an extended journey through time and space with the Mighty Boosh Special Edition DVD, a seven-disc compilation of the surreal UK comedy series' first three seasons, plus a bonus disc of live material and behind-the-scenes footage that's sure to please the show's growing legion of fans. Those who own the double-disc standalone editions of Boosh's first three seasons will find all of that material repeated here in six of the special edition's discs, including all episodes and supplemental features, so for those wishing to get up to speed in a hurry on the adventures of zookeepers Howard Moon and Vince Noir (creators Julian Barrett and Noel Fielding), or complete their collection in one fell swoop, here's the set to do it. It's the seventh disc that makes the special edition a must-have for first-timers and Boosh faithful alike; chief among its many extras is The Mighty Boosh: A Journey Through Time and Space, a lighthearted but comprehensive hour-long documentary about Barrett and Fielding's trajectory from humble standups to certifiable pop culture icons, with plenty of commentary by fellow UK comics like series producer Steve Coogan. Barrett and Fielding are also front and center for an interview at the Institute of Contemporary Arts and as hosts of a Mighty Boosh night on BBC Three from 2008, complete with their live linking segments. There's also a glimpse at a proto-Boosh in sketches from a 1997 unreleased TV pilot called (Un)Natural Acts, which also finds the pair in a zoo setting, albeit without the outlandish props. Deleted scenes, outtakes, and a look at the creation of the berserk Sammy the Crab puppet also await the faithful; the special features have been arranged in an appropriately psychedelic manner on the disc (none are labeled, and many simply lead to visual non sequiturs), with some only available as Easter eggs, so patience is most definitely required. --Paul Gaita

The Mighty Boosh is one of the most creative and fun shows ever made. The writing is hilarious and imaginative, the sets and costumes are delightful, and the songs are funny and catchy. It's truly original, and there just isn't anything else like it.

This is a nifty box set and a must have for fans of TMB. It contains all of the episodes from seasons 1-3 and hours of special features with a lot of good behind the scenes/making of stuff, deleted scenes, outtakes, and Sweet-- a short film written by James Pilkington that stars Julian and Noel. This set also includes art work and stickers. STICKERS! Enough said. Love them.

This is comedy for smart people - highly intelligent silliness, is how I would sum it up. I was first introduced to this show when it showed up in my netflix recommendations. I started with season 3, then watched seasons 1 and 2. By the time I was done, I was ready to watch them all over again, so I decided to go ahead and buy the dvds. Both of those are rare events - I can't remember the last time I liked something so much I wanted to watch it again immediately, and as a rule I don't buy dvds (why should I when they're so easy to rent?). What sets this show apart for me is the range of talent of both Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt. Noel was an art student when he and Julian first started performing together, he designs many of the costumes and the look of the show. Julian is a very versatile musician and composes all of the music, in a wide range of styles. This isn't just normal, everyday comedy - both of them have extremely fertile imaginations that takes them out of the humdrum into the fantastical. In one episode they find an amulet, they push the button and end up on another planet, but when it's time to go home it doesn't work - the batteries have gone dead. They make friends with coconuts, spurn advances from transsexual sea creatures, and become possessed by the spirit in a voodoo jazz LP, to name a few examples. The other thing that I love about it is that in general, it is very good-natured. They don't make fun of people or types, or put people in difficult positions. Noel's character, Vince Noir, does like to tease Howard Moon (Julian Barratt), but he often does it with a smile, you can feel the depth of the bond between the two of them (which is expressed more directly in various episodes - especially The Party, season 3). It is without reserve the best entertainment I have come across in years. I really hope they release the live dvd over here, and maybe even come back for a tour???

Words cannot describe how creative and "laugh-out-loud" funny these guys and these shows are... I have all three seasons and am WAITING for the "LIVE DVD" to come out in U.S. format.... The Monty Python for a new generation...

I've got all 3 series of The Mighty Boosh and was lucky to have met them in San Diego and in LA recently. Their Live Show is indescribable but the DVD shows don't do the airing of shows currently being shown on Adult Swim (they cut too much out!!). I cannot wait for this special edition set to arrive. Every true Boosh fan should have this in their Boosh Collection! Once the Collection arrives I can loan my Series 1,2 & 3 to turn more friends and family on to the Boosh. Can't wait until they return to the US for a LIVE Tour!! Don't miss getting in on the Boosh Bandwagon. They're sure to be a HUGE hit for years to come in the States. Incredibly funny and entertaining. The Extras, Outtakes and music on the DVDs is EPIC!! Long Live the Boosh!

Sometimes I wonder what they have in the water in England. First they produced "Monty Python," and now they have "The Mighty Boosh."

And while the basic description sounds like a slightly-out-of-the-ordinary sitcom, the reality is anything but. "The Mighty Boosh: The Special Edition Seasons 1-3" is a sitcom drizzled with acid and punched through with the surreal, where the most mundane activities become freakishly bizarre. Lots of raunchy humor, silly puppets, songs and journeys into other realms -- it's a head-trip, and you'll love every second of it.

It follows the awkward cream-poet Howard Moon (Julian Barratt) and flamboyant wacky Vince Noir (Noel Fielding). In the first season, the two guys work at a zoo called the Zooniverse, then they live together in a flat (with an extraterrestrial mystic and an ape) as they try to break into the music business, and finally Howard is employed at a boutique called the Nabootique (owned by aforementioned mystic) while Vince continues trying to break into music.

Along the way we've got the Hitcher (eels!), breeding yetis, the Spirit of Jazz, a deranged sea hermaphrodite called Old Gregg, black magic and Shaman Juice, Nanageddon, a "Fantastic Voyage" to save Vince from an evil jazz cell, a pair of copycats who mimic everything Vince and Howard do, the Crack Fox, a mad scientist kidnapping animals, drainpipe pants, the sapphire Egg of Mantumbi, and kangaroo boxing. And that's only SOME of it.

"The Mighty Boosh" is your basic average sitcom... on enough acid to fry its colorful little brains and send it flying across the universe on Naboo's magic carpet.

Yerp. I guess I'll wait until October for this instead of buying the individual seasons tomorrow.
