Editorial Reviews

For five groundbreaking seasons, Canadian-bred comic prodigies THE KIDS IN THE HALL stretched sketch comedy to its ultimate limits with hilariously off-the-wall results. With a cast of comic creations only the brilliant--or truly twisted--could imagine, THE KIDS IN THE HALL: THE COMPLETE SERIES MEGASET presents the Kids’ nearly 800 sketches from every single episode of each season in this stunning 20-disc set. From the infamous Chicken Lady and Crushing Your Head to Buddy Cole and the romantically challenged Cabbage Head, these pioneering, edgy, and ever-charming comedians always managed to land on the stranger side of funny--and look good in floral dresses while doing it. Unhinged, unprecedented, and unfailingly unpredictable, the Emmy® nominated, critically acclaimed cult favorite THE KIDS IN THE HALL is at long last available in its sidesplitting entirety. Be warned: the complete compendium of THE KIDS IN THE HALL could lead to irrepressible episodes of spontaneous head-crushing. FEATURING: Buddy Cole, Hecubus, Head Crusher, Chicken Lady, Apathetic Cop, Gavin, Sir Simon Milligan, A.T. & Love Boss, The Queen, Cabbage Head, Bad Doctor, Francesca Fiore, Bearded Lady, Flying Pig, Satan DVD Features: An Oral History-Season 1: 45 Minutes of Interviews with the Kids and Lorne Michaels; An Oral History-Season 2: 15 minutes with the Kids, Paul Bellini, and Lorne Michaels; Audio Commentary by The Kids; 10 Best-of Compilations Featuring Fan-Favorite Sketches; Over 90 Minutes of Original Performances from the Rivoli Theater; Archival Footage Never-Before-Seen-on-TV; Original KIDS IN THE HALL Performance Poster Gallery; Slide Show; Cast Biographies; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

If you're checking out this page, you're probably already a fan (or at least know) of the Kids In The Hall, probably the most inventive and weird sketch comedy show from the early 1990's. Not only is every season worth owning, there really aren't any weak seasons--each one has its ridiculously hilarious highlights, the writing is great throughout, and it's really great to watch certain small characters keep popping up again and again (like Danny Husk, for instance). The question is, though, is it cheaper to buy the Megaset, or to buy them individually?

I bought all 5 seasons on DVD, which is exactly what's being offered by this product. I bought mine through alternative sellers, though, which can be a pretty awesome deal--Season One goes for less than 5 bucks these days, and each consecutive season goes for a little bit more; the longer they've been out, the cheaper they are. If you're willing to buy them as you finish watching them, you could probably save a lot of money going individually, but it might be worthwhile just to get them all at once--just be sure you check around for prices, because you might be able to get a stellar deal.

If, by some chance, you haven't heard of the Kids In The Hall before, now's a perfect time to start watching what you missed--it's kind of like SNL, except less focused on celebrity hosts and a whole lot weirder, more cross-dressing, and more creative. Fans have always been entertained by great recurring characters like the head crusher, Simon Milligan (lord of the underworld), Gavin the annoying nerdy kid, Buddy Cole, and the list goes on (and on!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately no subtitles September 20, 2008
By Johnny
This is the perfect Kids in the Hall megaset with lots of extra material for fans. It's good-looking from outside to inside and nothing about it feels cheap. But since there weren't any subtitles available at all and my hearing is a little bad, I'm still very disappointed. It seems as it would've been an easy thing to add and now that I'm without there's nothing I can do. But still, I'm a proud owner of 42 hours of pure fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious sketch comdy and great bonus features January 30, 2008
Where to begin...the Kids in the Hall are 5 completely different and truly brilliant comics. This set is a must-have (whether you buy it as a set or individually). The recurring characters are especially hilarious from the very first episode: Chicken Lady, Buddy Cole, Cathy and Kathy, Thirty Helens, the Headcrusher, Bellini, Simon and Hecubus, "He's Hip..", the Cops, Queen Elizabeth, and I know I forgot a ton of others. They are all priceless. One of the sketches that always cracks me up is when Scott Thompson's character decides he wants to be an Indian woman. I don't know why, it just does. Bruce McCulloch's annoying kid Gavin is awesome as are Simon and Hecubus ("EVIL!"). And the one where Kevin and Dave are trappers in an office building. I could go on and on, it is impossible to pick one favorite. Then there are their monologues...absolutely priceless! The bonus features are truly great, the new interviews show the guys still have the great sarcastic wit that made them wildly popular. Also very cool is the archival footage from the Rivoli Theater in Toronto.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendiforous! April 10, 2007
Verified Purchase
Anyone actively or inactively into comedy in the early 90s remembers the ireverence and audacity of this fantastic Canadian comedy troupe. Bring back the experience with this massive, 20 disk collection. The kind of collection that, if you dropped it on your cat it would die, IT'S THAT BIG! Timeless characters like; Mr. Heavyfoot, Cabbage-head, Buddy Cole, Idiot Boy, Danny Husk, Gavin, the Steps trio, Jerry and Jerry Sizzler, Flying Pig and many many more can be yours forever with this great set. By the second season it was clear that these fresh-faced canuks had a great synergy and a type of comdey that hadn't been seen since Monty Python. You won't find original sketch comedy like this anymore. And you won't find a better deal than on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for any KITH fan. February 3, 2007
This set is awesome. Every single episode of the glorious Kids in the Hall. This also contains a goos selection of special features including live show footage. The price is hard to beat(I paid half price on sale). 20 discs of hilarity!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sketch comedy at it's finest!!! November 2, 2007
By JJD
For the uninitiated, these five Canadians are the standard to which all other sketch comedy acts must follow.

Most people know them for Mark McKinney's "Head Crushing" bits or Scott Thompson's Buddy Cole monologues. The fact of the matter is that they are so much more than a few memorable catch phrases. Their irreverant humor and ability to find a laugh in the most incredibly mundane situations makes them comedic masterminds. There is nary a dull point in all of their seasons. Some may be quite funnier than others, but they are a joy to watch nonetheless. There is chemistry here...and in spades.

One particular favorite is watching Dave Foley as a lounge pianist who doesn't know a single note on the piano..and he sings about his shortcomings with such glee. Enter Kevin McDonald, who glides across the piano, his lankey frame sporting a sequinned coctail dress. He knows he's not a singer, but like Foley, he sings of his own ineptitude so horribly off key. In about a 60 second bit, they have me rolling. It's so bizarre, yet undeniably hypnotic. That remains my single favorite moment in the whole of the series, and I laugh about it to this day (16 years later).

Other faves include...

Bruce McCullough's open letter to the guy that stole his bicycle wheel..and his open letter to the people that watched the guy steal his bicycle wheel.

Dave Foley as Kevin's pet demon who just want's someone to talk to.

Scott Thompson's "Running Faggot".

Mark McKinney as a French Canadian pyromaniac office employee.

The list goes on...

If you haven't given these guys much attention, then you missed out on the best sketch comedy show since Lorne Michaels introduced us to Belushi and company 30 plus years ago. This is your chance to get in on something wonderful that many of us have been cherishing for nearly 20 years.

Canadian or US versions?
Answered 4 years later, but in case anyone else is wondering...

Don't let the &E label on the box fool you!

Season 1-3 are the HBO versions, as they would show more than CBC. Then CBS bought rights to air them, while HBO stopped. Hence, seasons 4-5 are CBC versions, as they show more than CBS... Read More
