Product Description

AMERICA'S FUNNIEST:BEST OF KID

Amazon.com

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

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.

I bought this DVD for my son and it was not what I expected. There was more talking with the guests & host than there was funny videos. Needless to say, it didn't keep my son's attention for long.

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.

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.

Very disappointed. It says Tom Bergeron...it wasn't. It's an episode from forever ago with Bob Saget. Sorry, but I can't stand him and I was just expecting videos of kids and animals...there were kids and animals, but it was an episode. I fast forwarded through a LOT of Saget dialogue ... Waste of money

AFV is one of our favorite toys each Sunday evening. So we decided to get this CD for long car rides. The clips are funny as always but what we all agreed on is that the panel discussion kills the rythm of the show. It does take them a while to begin to play off each other and Tom does a good job to keep them moving - but that's the point: it should look like so much work! And it shouldn't again be about winning another set of money - it should be more about the clips. Had I previewed this CD I don't think I would have bought it.

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.
