Jim was a multi-celled life form happily burrowing through the topsoil. His life changed in a flash when an extraterrestrial super-suit fell out of the sky. Instantly transformed from a 98 gram weakling into a muscular worm endowed with superpowers, extraordinary strength and the ability to leap incredible heights and distances, the suit renders him invulnerable. Earthworm Jim daring defender of Earth, the cosmos and everything in between!

The transfer quality is nice, and all of the episodes are here. That's likely the best any EWJ fans are going to get, so I've probably won you over with that. Unfortunately there are no special features whatsoever on these discs. That's a little disappointing as even the old VHS releases of two episodes each had a short production feature. Including those four segments on here would seem to be an easy add-on. Really though, the main draw are the funny, eclectic episodes of this unique series, so it's not a big lose.

I was a bit young when Earthworm Jim was actually airing on Kids' WB, but I do certainly remember the toyline and the general popularity of the franchise. In watching most of these episodes for the first time, I have been relatively impressed at how legitimately funny they are. EWJ is a lot like The Tick or Animaniacs, in that the humor is appropriate for kids but contains a lot of pop-culture references that only teens and adults would really appreciate. Simply put, there's enough dry humor and sarcasm to make the episodes worth watching today, regardless of nostalgia. Also, the voice acting is top-notch, especially Dan Castellaneta as Jim.

On the downside, the video/audio quality is mediocre (as some reviewers have noted), but clearly these were not taped off the air or anything like that. Additionally, there are no special features, which is even weirder considering that the VHS tapes had behind-the-scenes clips regarding the making of the show. On a final note, some of the episode titles in the menu are incorrectly flipped.

Also, I would like to add that I truly believe this set is NOT a bootleg--it is simply a lower-quality third-party distribution of a show that otherwise would never have made it onto DVD. As fans of EWJ may know, the rights to the character are a mess, so we're lucky that this set even exists.

I remember watching this show in college and laughing my butt off. Earthworm Jim is based on the video game for the Sega Genesis, the leading game console at the time. (Or the Super NES, if you were one of *those* people...) The cartoon perfectly captured the absurdist nature of the game: Jim is an ordinary worm who was given super-powers when a super suit fell out of the sky and landed on him, and he uses its power to fight space villains like Psy-Crow, Bob the Killer Goldfish and Professor Monkey-For-A-Head.

Dan Castellaneta, best known for his work on The Simpsons, provides the voice of Jim, and he's hilarious. Jim's sidekick, Peter Puppy, quotes Frank Herbert's "Dune" ("I must not fear, fear is the mind killer...") and turns into a monster and attacks Jim whenever he gets injured or frightened. In fact, there are quite a few literary and film references sprinkled throughout, and most of them are classics or modern classics so they don't feel dated 20 years later. I caught nods to Citizen Kane, Pulp Fiction, 1984, original series Trek and many others. It's fun, inspired lunacy, with Doug Langdale as the head writer - more recently, he created "Dave the Barbarian" for Disney Channel - although the animation is lower-end 1990s quality. As a result, while the writing and voice acting are solid, the visual comic timing frequently feels a bit off. It's a notch or two below its Warner Bros contemporaries, "Animaniacs" and "Freakazoid".

Unfortunately the 1990s were also a time of censorship, as parents' groups' concerns over video game content (darn you Mortal Kombat) spilled over onto television shows. The episode "The Book of Doom" originally had Jim saying the line, "Aww, screw the universe, I want my book back!

Yes, the region 1 version does exist! The case looked stepped on and at least one of the discs is scratched but that is just a hazard of buying anything through the mail. There really isn't much to say about this set. It has no extras whatsoever. The picture quality seems okay. It is NOT a bootleg and says NBC Universal on the cover and on each disc. It is a three disc set in an typical plastic case. The case is a good one, this one just has damage. There are 23 episodes which we think is all of them. There are 7 or 8 episodes on each disc. It should please any North American Earthworm Jim fan.

I got this as a joke for my friend who I was telling about it. I used to watch it as a kid but couldn't remember any of the details except worm in a space suit. What started out as a joke turned into shock as I watched the familiar cartoon antics unfold. Before I knew it there we were hours in and singing along to the most catchy theme song to any cartoon ever.

It really is a awesome cartoon. I'd forgotten how out there and weird it was. Honestly it's better now because most of the jokes went over my head as a kid now I can sit back and laugh

I never thought I'd see this come into reality. Earthworm Jim was an animated series that ran for two seasons from 1995-1996 on Kid's WB TV. It's based on the surreal humor video game for Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. The cartoon was unlike any other animated show. The show constantly breaks the fourth wall, which they do it in a way that is original.

Every episode leaves you laughing every second. There is not a dull moment in this series and that is something that most cartoons these days are lacking.

If you think that an extraterrestrial super suit that fell from space and landed on an earthworm then granted him super powers is funny and freaking awesome, then prepare to place an order.

Finally, the complete series of Earthworm Jim is here on dvd. The product is truly the best Earthworm Jim as ever looked. All 23 episodes of the series are here spread over three discs. There are no special features, but who cares? We finally have Earthworm Jim in complete series form.

The video and audio quality is the best Earthworm Jim as ever held. And now this dvd set is at a price that is unbeatable.

So log on to your amazon account and place an order for Earthworm Jim: The Complete Series. You will enjoy every second of this amazing animated series.
