I've gotten hold of an early copy of the set, so I figured I'd share some specifics about what the set looks like, what's actually contained, etc. This isn't really a review of the show itself - I figure The PJs is a niche enough show that only fans are likely to stumble across this page anyway - suffice to say, I'd rate the show somewhere in the 4.5/5 region, firmly in the upper echelon of TV animation.

The packaging for the set is pretty basic - standard-width Amaray case, containing two discs, one on a tray. Back cover is pretty uneventful, with a large picture and a brief description of the show. There are, frustratingly, no episode details on either the back of the box or on an insert inside; you have to put the discs in your player to see what's on them.

The menus are static. The main menu plays The PJs theme song in the background and offers two options, "play all" and "episode selection". Pretty self-explanatory. There are no alternative language tracks, there are no subtitle options (not even English). The set is, however, closed-captioned.

The episodes are presented on the set in production order (not airdate order). Thirteen episodes are included. This means that "How the Super Stoled Christmas" is not included, as it was one of the last episodes produced, despite being listed as part of season one on most online episode guides. Wikipedia mentions a "pilot" episode; if that exists, it's not included here either (I say "if", as I've never seen it, and IMDb and TV.com don't list it). The back-of-the-box DVD running time allocates 24 minutes to each episode (more on the *actual* running times later); based on this, July 5th's release of season 2 will contain eighteen episodes.

Greetings all! I'm taking just a wee bit of your time to review this product. I watched this when it was running on network television. It was funny then & funny now. It's taken a long time to get this for purchase. I actually have tried for years. The only difference from the tv show, is the end credits where there is no theme musice playing as the episodes go off. That's all. The discs are very crisp & clear. The whole series is what I purchases because it is a classic & very funny. It's part of Eddie Murphy's better layers. Some of his raturally "raw" comedic genius. At least to me any way. This series depicts the goings ons & goings ins of the "hood" or projects as it is. Though it boasts exaggerations of circumstances surrounding minorites & fiscal handicap, it speaks high octave volumes of what happens in governmental properties intended for the indigent. The lifestyle in this environment mimics the residents as an indigenous people. The pjs shows a laughable tolerance for the less fortunate. It entertains & sheds light on the daily struggles of housing developments & the abundant neglect throughout the system. I would thoroughly recommend this product because it'll grab your attention & keep u laughing. Please don't hesitate to give it a try.

This is awesome and so funny! We finally own the whole series on DVD. We were wondering what every happened to this show! Now we are so excited to add this whole series to our collection. This show is so funny!

You will laugh, roll on the floor laughing, cry and I mean be close to the bath room You will have to go! Whew funny and real T.V. With the crap they have on T.V. now days, you need something that is real like The PJ's.

We don't have cable any more and decided to watch T.V. the way we want to. With this show added to our collections, this makes it better than paid T.V. We have so much more with T. V the way we want it! No cable means we can afford to purchase shows like this and break free from the yoke and bondage of paid T.V.

This show is full of so much humor, you will not be disappointed with your purchase. You will enjoy the music, the characters, the acting, the picture that comes through is so colorful.. and clear..

The shipment was quick. If you need some laugh, need something to pick you up, this will do it.

Get your laugh on!

I thought I'd never see the day when "The PJs" was released on DVD. The first two seasons are brilliantly funny -- and just politically incorrect enough that I doubt such a show would ever be green-lighted by a major network these days.

I watch "The PJs" on TV One every Saturday morning, and I can only hope that the DVD versions include original music. For example: in the episode "Bougie Fever" (sp?), a five or six second sample of "The Jeffersons" theme song is changed in the syndicated version. The scene absolutely loses its hilarity, and I hope that it's unchanged on the DVD.

I like the show, but DVD #2 wont play. I only paid $7, so it isn't worth returning. The show is funny, edgy. I can see why Eddie Murphy took a lot of $hit about it from the top (Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc.) "What? A TV show set in the projects with a crack-head named Smokey!? How dare he!"

The first season of the Vinton Studios produced the animated series, The PJs for the FOX TV network is stellar. The hilarious adult comedy/animated series was a partnership between Vinton and creators/executive-producers, Eddie Murphy, Larry Wilmore and Matt Groening. Through the use of Foamation, the refined Vinton style of dimensional animation, the residents of the mythical Hilton Jacobs Housing Project come to life. Eddie Murphy and Mark Moseley voiced the lead character, Thurgoode Orenthal Stubbs, the inept janitor of the building. The lovable cast of characters include Stubbs' long-suffering wife, Muriel (Loretta Devine), Mrs. Avery (Ja'net DuBois), Sanchez (Pepe Serna), Juicy Hudson (Michele Morgan), Walter Burkett (Marc Wilmore), Jimmy Ho (Michael Paul Chan), Smokey (Shawn Michael Howard), Calvin (Crystal Scales), Bebe Ho (Jenifer Lewis), Mr. Hudson (Kevin Michael Richardson), Mambo Garcelle, aka Haiti Lady (Cheryl Francis Harrington), Tarnell (James Black), and HUD woman (Cassi Davis). Of all these, the Thurgood and Smokey scenes are the funniest!
