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.
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!Read more ›
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
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.
