Editorial Reviews

Jim (The Head) is an animated mutant super-hero with an insanely large cranium. A freak encounter left him with a problem. A big one: he's got an alien named Roy living inside his oversized dome. Plus, he's got the added headache of having o deal with an impending invasion of Earth by a fiendish army of evil parasitic aliens. Jim and Roy are feverishly assembling the Anti-Invasion Machine, whose five pieces have been scattered throughout the world. Will Jim and his skull-dwelling companion have the skill to save the Earth? Only The Head knows.

Recently, I ordered Amazon.com's
MTV's Oddities - The Head

This review is similar to the one that I wrote for the MTV's Oddities - The Maxx, seen in the link below

The Maxx: The Complete Series

The reason I am writing this review is because, I have been reading the reviews on this item, and they are only so-so, and sometimes, in my opinion, unfair, or unsavory.

People, this is going to be the best version you are most likely EVER going to get.
Yes, this is a burn on demand.
Yes, the discs you are going to get are going to be blue rather than silver.
These are the best burn on demands I have ever seen. The tops of the discs are pro, the packaging is pro.
These go so far as to even have a bar code.
Bottom line, they may as well just be considered official.

This version of The Head has EVERYTHING you will ever need. The episodes are uncut. Within the first 2 episodes I saw things that were NOT on my VHS version.
The Head is a tiny bit more gritty looking than The Maxx, but the show was like that anyway.
Also, unlike The Maxx, the Head is a 3 disc rather than 2.

Amazon has done a great job on this collection, and if other reviews have you thinking against the purchase, DONT. Get them. They are worth it.

I found this while searching for Daria: The Complete Animated Series on DVD and was pleasantly surprised to find this available. Being from the UK I only recall seeing this on one of our UK cable channels during the late 90's and not MTV itself (at least not that I'm aware of). I was also intrigued by the idea that these discs are available as DVD-R's rather than traditional 'retail' style DVD's with the silver backing.

Upon receiving the set I was quite impressed with the quality of the packaging and also the discs themselves. They look as professional as you would normally buy any other retail DVD, the only significant part being the purple backing showing it was burned onto regular DVD-R.

Sadly one of the discs had failed to read which could be the possible downside of it being on a DVD-R (burn failure maybe?), however Amazon have been amazingly kind to return my money and let me keep the original set while sending me a replacement set at the same time.

As for the DVD itself the quality is great and personally the same type of quality as you would get with any other DVD release. Sure the animation looks slightly primitive, and it even did back then, but keep in mind this was most likely a low budget show to begin with and each episode is only about 10-15 minutes long. It was originally part of an MTV show known as "MTV Oddities" which also consisted of the show The Maxx (The Maxx: The Complete Series).

Overall a good buy if you were a fan of the show and interesting to have alongside the Beavis & Butt-Head and Daria connections (for those that didn't know Butt-Head made a cameo on the first episode of The Head while on the first episode of Daria a student in the classroom is wearing a The Head shirt with Jim's face on it).

As has been said, this is a burn on demand title... SO WHAT? The transfer is really quite nice and the audio is crisp and clean. That said and out of the way, The Head is simply a must have product... weird, wonderful, dry humor with decent animation and an engaging (if somewhat simple) plot. I thoroughly enjoyed every single minute of this show and as I said, it is a decent transfer... definitely the best you are going to get for the foreseeable future.

MTV's odditties are instant classics, awesome copy's of the show, their are business's out their distributing the head and maxx with terrible quality that looks as if they transfered it from vhs to dvd and priced it for 2ice as much as the ones amazon is pricing it as, this was before you can find these on amazon.

I was a customer who got screwed in that field, so i was sorta worried about these when i was purchasing them from amazon and believe it or not, amazon did an amazing job and i am satisfied with it from cover work to disc work to production and quality of every episode on this purchase, i dont even care if the under side is purple and not gold or silver, great work amazon, for anybody reading this, this is fully legitimate copies, do not go anywhere else or you will most likely get screwed, i am a satisfied customer, thank you.

As another reviewer stated, this is as good as it's going to get. All of the torrents I've downloaded were crap VHS rips. While I'm sad that this isn't an official release; the quality and content exceeds anything available on the interwebs -- and I've been searching for YEARS to find a proper copy of this series.

A little pricey given that it's an on-demand burn, but as I stated in my title of this review: beggars can't be choosers.

If you were/are a true fan of this series, you'll buy this -- and like me, be very satisfied with the end result.

This cartoon seemed a lot funnier back in the day... It still provides the odd laugh but the dated and, frankly, crappy animation detracts from it. The voice recording is weak as well.
The outright strange story line and content make it interesting enough to watch. The interaction between the aliens is some of the best humour of the show. It is topped when our band of heros discovers the cover ups and conspiricies that wounded or mutated them. Especially lawn mower blade guy... whatshisname... "...they knew dammit! They knew!"
Worth a look. Still some fun to watch.

I haven't watched through all three discs, but I know that the first disc is just episodes 1-8. There is no alternate audio, and no subtitles. I was a bit bummed by the lack of subtitles. The back of the case doesn't list any features either, just that it is "all 20 episodes from season 1... Read More
