"Should have saved my money - this set is just four episodes recycled from previous collections. There are three from Collection 1 and one from the "Big Blasts" collection.
1) Exploding Toilet
2) Cell Phone Destroys Gas Station
3) Penny Drop
4) Exploding Lighter
DON'T BOTHER... all episodes previously released.

"UPDATE: This DVD is now even less of a value, even for casual fans, since the price of Collection 1 is now $9.99 and Amazon is currently listing this one for $10.49. Collection 1 contains 12 episodes, plus a bonus "behind-the-scenes" episode on 4 discs. What's more, three out of the four episodes on Urban Legends are on the first disc of Collection 1. If you really must have all four, the fourth is on the BIG BLASTS Collection, which contains a total of 10 episodes. It's a bit pricey here for some reason, but could potentially be found for less elsewhere, possibly used.
Now, for the sake of completeness, here is my original review:
I have to start by saying that the offers shown on this page (as I'm typing this) are all overpriced. I bought my copy at Walmart for $9.96, and it's also available on their website for $12.73. Unfortunately, the site doesn't show the correct cover art -- I have uploaded a "Customer Image" which is the image they use. Even though the title is completely different, this is apparently "temp art", and the UPC matches "Urban Legends", which is what I received when I placed an order.
I have no problems with the episodes, they are all among the best episodes of the show, but for anyone who already owns the previous collections from Image, there is nothing new. I really liked the packaging, so I bought it anyway, but the first three episodes are on Disc 1 of Collection 1, and the fourth is on the BIG BLASTS Collection, both of which can be had for about the same price as the sellers are asking here and contain MANY more episodes.
All in all a decent product, but as they say, "buyer beware"."
