Not too shabby for under $20

"Somehow or another my local Target store was selling copies of this dvd about 10 days before it is supposed to be released. So....lucky me. For animation fans of whatever variety, this is a great little collection. "Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt have scoured the globe to bring you thirty amazing animated films", and how! This collection includes a smorgasboard of animation, including traditional animation, rotoscoping, clay animation, stop-motion, 3d animation, experimental, and probably more than a few hybrids. If you are a fan of "Beavis and Butt-head" (or just a fan of Mike Judge in general), this collection contains several early animations and experimentations, somewhat revealing the evolution of the style behind "B & B". Although, it may be said that you can probably view the majority (if not all) of these animations on-line, there is something invaluable about having them all in your hand contained within an attractively designed box set, which also contains an informative booklet profiling the artists behind the contained animations. All for under $20 (which comes out to about 67 cents per animation). Not too shabby."

"Very pleased with this set. In an age where you can quite easily pay $20 for a new, single-disc release of most movies, which come with no insert other than a one-sheet "Buy more DVDs from this company"...it's refreshing to pay less than $20 for two well-made discs and a very nice, informative booklet. As a fan of Hertzfeldt, Plympton and Judge, I bought this on the strength of them, but am finding a lot more that I like on here as well. Can't wait to catch the road show when it comes to the my area.
Word of warning, most people who come to this page will already know but, some of these cartoons are rather strange. Just be forewarned, if you try to put this on in mixed company, or for people who aren't really into animation other than Family Guy and The Simpsons, I doubt they will run screaming - but they're probably going to give you some strange looks. That's one of the reasons I love them - but, it might not be a lot of people's cup of tea.
And like JONG said, for 67 cents a short, you really can't beat giving it a shot."

"I watched Bevis and Butthead on dvd and the preview to this show would always play. A beautiful song mixed with vivid, bright animation and it really sold the set for me. Too bad the animation shorts on this set are not as good as the preview. Ive only seen a few of them that are worth watching more then once. An alright set but nothing exciting, like the preview was."
