Most of the crank calls on her are really funny. Couple of clunkers but overall its hilarious. My favorite is Special Ed. I Got Mail.

"Unlike some people, I don't review DVDs until I have actually watched them. This collection includes all 10 first seasons episodes of Crank Yankers, now with the curse words unbleeped. There are still a few bleeps, though; mostly the names of businesses. Like when Terrence calls Spago to make a reservation for Bill Cosby, "Spago" is bleeped. Oddly, though, on the CD version of that call, "Spago" was unbleeped. Watching the early episodes of Crank Yankers, it is interesting to observe some of the ways the show has "evolved" since then. Some of the puppets didn't have quite the same look as they do now. The most notable difference is in Cammie, who was originally a blonde. Also, the show was more experimental during the first season. They tried things like having musical performances and "wise sayings" from Confucius. These bits were later dropped to concentrate entirely on the crank phone calls. The bonus materials on the DVD include a documentary about the making of the show, which is interesting, at least the first time you watch it. There are also two unaired calls, which are not as funny as the calls that actually did air. If you like this show, this DVD set is well produced and worth the money."

"For those who wonder how a dvd set that has not come out can be given 5 stars, well I have two words for you--Special Ed. That character alone is worth the bucks it will take to have this set of dvd. Plus, the cast of guest voices features some really funny folks. If you love great comedy, then BUY THIS DVD SET!!! Dum-dum-dum-dum Yay!!!!"

"After seeing Crank Yankers on Comedy Central my husband and I were excited that it was finally coming out on DVD. Even though we had seen all of them already it was still just as funny the second time around. There's just something funny seeing puppets acting out prank phone calls. If you have a sense of humor you will be laughing for hours:)"
