"My kids, 3 and 5, enjoy a lot of the silly clips that they see on AFV and I purchased this set for them. Surprising to me, they have not shown great interest in these dvds. I think one of the issues is that the dvds include MUCH of the dialogue by the hosts, including the AFV theme music as they go to AND come back from commercial breaks. The music and dialogue combined contribute to the majority of time in these videos. In short, if you were to actually calculate the amount of time devoted to clips, it really doesn't amount to a whole lot more than you would catch in a typical episode on TV. I guess I/we expected to see a greater compilation of clips given the longevity of the show."
A good selection of funny home videos

"It was very funny to watch this collection of selected videos, despite some of them are repeated from America's Funniest Home Video Volume 1. I advice to watch them in family."

"I bought this as a family gift for our family which includes a 7 yr. son and 10 yr. daughter. To get three dvd's in regular size dvd cases is nice, compared to the flimsy clear cases you usually get in a collection pack. I consider it a great investment (I paid just $15.99)as it's one of those dvd's you just pull it out when you feel like having a great laugh together. Now, I will say, the AFV Looks at Kids & Animals with Bob Saget was not very funny. We hardly laughed in this one, including my kids. Bob had some really corny fillers in between the videos and I mean corny - SentarBoy? - Half boy, half animal? I would have been very disappointed if I had just bought this video as even the clips aren't all that funny. The other two in my opinion make it up. The Battle of the Best has some funny dialogs between the celebrities (beware of the phrase using "hell" that is used by one if this is offensive to you. This has some screamingly funny clips. The clips are longer too which I like. The All Animal Extravaganza is very funny too - several clips you may have already seen on youtube. This has Tom Bergeron as a host and he makes everything funny in my opinion anyway. Whether you have kids or not, if you like AFV, this will be great to add to your collection."
