Home Movies: The Complete Series
DVD | Box Set
All 52 episodes of the cult classic animated series from Loren Bouchard (Bobs Burgers) and Brendon Small (Metalocalypse)!
With an alcoholic soccer coach for a father figure and a woman who swears during parent/teacher conferences for an actual mother, eight-year-old Brendon Small chronicles his life as a jaded third-grader (who happens to have the brain of a twenty-something) with his video camera in order to cope with the trials of his oddly precocious life.
With fresh, insightful wit and a terrific voice cast (including Small, H. Jon Benjamin, Melissa Galsky, Janine Ditullio, and Louis C.K.,) Home Movies was an early [adult swim] success story, and remains a hilariously animated sitcom for the frustrated junior auteur inside each of us.

I had forgotten about this show for awhile, but while watching some of my favorite toons from highschool (Duckman!), I was reminded of this great show. I looked it up, found this complete set, and ordered............ And Im so glad I did.
The show was smart, and full of the kind of humor that would blend in nicely among the likes of Bobs Burgers or Rick and Morty today. Infact, it would be very possible that there wouldn't even be a Bobs Burgers if not for this show...
The seasons get better and better as the show progresses and really finds each characters footing. While it wasn't a laugh out loud riot, the quiet chuckles come one after the other-- making it a very enjoyable watch. The writing is great, the voices are great.
The animation is a little shaky early on, as was intended, but seemed to settle down as the show went out. The coloring and image quality was great. This show is in full frame, which drives me insane, but it's fitting considering that widescreen wasn't really a thing for home tv's back then so it was all shot in full frame.
Special features on these episodes are really cool. I'm glad they included everything they did.
The packaging was condensed into 6 discs in each of 2 dvd cases (for 12 total). This really cuts down on shelf space from buying these as 4 individual seasons. Why you are missing out on some cool box art, this seems like a great trade. The cases hold the discs nicely, and really- thats all I needed them to do.
I loved this show so many years ago, and found that as an adult--- I love it even more now. Im so glad that I picked this up!
