"In my book, the original Tom Green Show on MTV was the single greatest show of all time. Call me "immature", but to me, nothing is funnier than Tom riding in the back of a rickshaw on a busy street, wearing a British soldier uniform, screaming into a megaphone "OOOOOOUUUH!!!! OOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUHHHH!!!!"
This mega set contains 3 packed discs, with 26 half-hour episodes of Tom's show on the Canadian "Comedy Central" equivalent, right before he went to MTV. While a lot of the clips were used on the MTV show, most of this stuff has never been seen by us Americans - including tons of in-studio stuff, with unsuspecting guests, Glenn Humplik(P.I.M.P), Phil Sher-ooo/Gear-Rocks/Giroux, and the poor studio audience. And holy (...)This is some of Tom's best! Tom was hungry, crazy, and had absolutley no fear back in these days - and it shows on this dvd set.
It's all here, from the "WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU GOIN???" guy, to the dead raccoon mascot, bags of milk, singing with drunk people, dead moose humping, Jim Cab TV, wanton chainsaw & baseball bat destruction, cow brains(!), Brad Pitt, more bags of milk, Humplik's ass, weirdo French-Canadians, the slutmobile, cow teet sucking, messing with foreigners/old people, a sh*tload of maniacal screaming(my favorite) and sooo much more.
Special features include:
Nearly one hour of unreleased material - cut scenes, longer takes, unreleased segments, ect
Commentary track by Tom on one episode - but it goes long, ending with Tom talking on camera aboot the show.
"A note from Tom" A written piece about the show by Tom.
It's a shame Tom has scaled down his on-screen persona in recent years, because watching this stuff I laughed so hard I almost threw up... Pure comedic genius here, folks.
Bottom line: If you liked Tom's original MTV show, then there is no need to ponder, you must own this. 9+ hours of insanity for (...)? Don't think, BUY IT!!!
Bam Margera, Johnny Knoxville,Steve-O....You all owe Tom Gre

"He paved the way for everything you guys do today. Bam is the biggest Tom Green thief (and I like Bam), but Tom was torturing his parents on video years before Bam even got his first camcorder. Tom Green's goofy interviews, his obnoxious public displays and his silly characters still make me giggle harder than anything on Jackass. I am 36 years old, but this box set has me in stitches every time I watch it. A TON of these clips were used on Tom's MTV show in the late 90's. In fact, the majority of Tom's MTV show was made up of the stuff that you will find on this excellent 3 disc set. Squid Suit, Feet On Fire, Processing Juice (...), Caramel Lovin' Hick, Celebrity Interviews, Officer Green, Torturing Parents Skits, Milking The Cow(s) almost every other skit you remember is here. The world needs more Tom Green and this set will keep you busy for days."
SOME OF THE FUNNIEST, EDGEY STUFF FILMED

"THIS BOX SET HAS TO BE ONE OF MY FAVORITE SETS THAT I HAVE EVER BOUGHT BECAUSE IT CONTAINS ALL THE EPISODES FROM TOM GREEN'S EARLIER WORK ON THE CANADIAN COMEDY NETWORK. IF YOU WERE LIKE ME THAN YOU WERE BLOWN AWAY BY THE MTV SHOW, AND THIS SET IS GREAT BECAUSE IT HAS MOST OF THE BITS THAT WERE SHOWN ON THE MTV SHOW. NOW, I SAY PARSE THIS ONE OUT A LITTLE AT A TIME, AND DONT JUST SPEND ONE DAY WATCHING ALL THE EPISODES OR THE SET MIGHT GET OLD ON YOU. TAKE YOUR TIME WITH IT AND TAKE INTO CONTEXT WHAT THIS GUYS DOING. THIS IS THE BEGINING OF OUTLANDISH REALITY COMEDY!
PS- ITS ALL ABOUT COW BRAIN BOATS MAN!"
