Product Description

Clerks - The Animated Series Un

Amazon.ca

Writer-director Kevin Smith revives the characters of his indie classic film Clerks for this animated series created for network television. Though it aired for just two episodes on TV, the two-disc set has all six episodes plus a bevy of special features.

The episodes feature store clerks Dante and Randal and their ongoing adventures among the shelves of your local corner store. Never far from the epicenter of these adventures are the irreverent Jay and Silent Bob. Whether it's getting trapped in the walk-in cooler, attending their high school reunion, or fighting rival Leonardo Leonardo (who wants to dominate the local Quick Mart market), Clerks spoofs TV and movies with mocking pop-culture jokes and cameos by a number of celebrities. Ultimately, though, Clerks: The Animated Series suffers at the hands of network censors, lacking the obnoxious punch that made Clerks the film so offbeat and amusing.

Smith doesn't disappoint, however, with the inclusion of a number of special features on the DVD set, most notably the ever-insightful director's commentary with guests Jason Mewes (Jay), Brian O'Halloran (Dante), and Jeff Anderson (Randal). So while the series itself may be ill-fated, featurette on the making of the animated series--including storyboards and information on character development and the comic book influence on the drawing style--make this a robust offering for Kevin Smith completists. --Adam Medros

Maybe it was the fact that it was produced to be aired on network TV, and thus hadda be extensively watered down to conform to broadcast TV standards (translation: none of the sicker and profanity-laden adult-oriented material that made the movie that this series was based on so freakin' funny was used). Or it coulda been the endless array of pop-culture references and inside jokes that didn't seem to go anywhere-- well, except perhaps for a couple relating to Star Wars. Or maybe it was the smattering of interesting concepts and ideas for comedic situations that weren't developed to their fullest effect in the finished product. Or it might've been the repetition of certain gags that weren't all that funny the first time 'round (great example: the "climbing-up-the-side-of-the-building-using-a-rope-a-la-the-classic-Batman-series" gimmick that plays out about a half-dozen times in the first episode alone). Personally, however, I'd say it was all of the aforementioned factors (and others) that combined to make the animated Clerks series rather... well, uninteresting in my eyes. I got a few light chuckles here 'n' there-- the high point being the 'Lawsuit' eppie guest-starring Judge Reinhold and ending with a hyperactive jab at Japanese anime-- but overall the Clerks 'toon lacked the "big laughs" and "irreverent comedy" the video box blurb claimed this "outrageous anthology" possessed. Oh well, at least I've got Kevin Smith's movies to fall back on in case I need some real laughs...
Actually, there was one pop-culture-reference/in-joke dealie that I got a real good laugh out of, but only because it was so unintentionally ironic. One of the eppies featured a Happy Days flashback where the Fonz jumps his motorcycle over a shark tank (a moment that actually happened on Happy Days, BTW).

Like many of us, I was introduced to this show by a friend. And like many of us, I immediately went out and bought the DVD collection as soon as I could.
This is the show that could have been but wasn't. Billed at the same time as the Superbowl and the first "Survivor" the series met a sad fate of barely three episodes...even though six (including the pilot) existed. However, it now has a huge cult following, and barely any one who sees it isn't afraid to say they have.
What makes this show so funny? How can I explain it...the humor of Kevin Smith is all there, along with plain simple fun. Jay and Silent Bob are still clinging around the stores (the restraining order hasn't been put in place yet) and to introduce conflict rich tycoon Leonardo Leonardo comes in the pilot episode with a "Quicker Stop." He's basically the Mister Burns of the series.
The jokes are mainly centered around the antics of our two heroes as they try to handle such issues as a virus outbreak or a down-and-out baseball team. The most fondly remembered episode is the fourth one with the ending done by Korean animators ("BIG AMERICAN PARTY!!"), but all episodes are hilarious. The extras on the DVD are actually pretty decent. They have two ways of watching the show: as you normally would, or entirely by its storyboards. There is also a commentary by Kevin Smith and the voice cast, and its well worth your time to listen to. It goes into depth on the development of the show and each episode.
So is this worth you money? Should you take a dare and buy an entire series with no experience of it beforehand? If you have a sense of humor...definately yes. Tell them a car full of midgets sent you.

"Clerks", "Clerks Uncensored", or "Clerks The Animated Series" (what it's widely called), is obviously a take-off from the very popular View Askew film of the same name, only it's animated and lots of things are changed. In some ways, these changes are for the better. In other ways, these changes can be quite annoying or they may not even effect you one bit. I actually watched the "Clerks Uncensored" two-disc DVD set before I even watched the Clerks movie, so I didn't even notice these changes. Anyway, as I've mentioned before in my Clerks the movie review, I just didn't find it to be very funny. The show, on the other hand, was filled with moments that were simply hilarious.
I loved each episode of it and I curse ABC for canceling it after only two episodes. ABC is really the reason why some people didn't like the show. ABC forced the creators to change just about everything that made Clerks what it was. For instance, in the Kevin Smith movies, Jay & Silent Bob are drug dealers, whilst in the show, they are firecracker salesman. Jay & Silent Bob are still pretty funny, but it's weird to see them put in such a ridiculous means of employment.
Overall, I seem to like the show of Clerks better than the movie itself and enjoyed how Charles Barkley was almost in every episode. If you're looking for a show that is just like the movie, you won't find it here. However, if you're looking for a show that is pretty funny and you're open-minded about it, then I'm willing to bet that you'll like this show.

This stuff is funny. Sure, there's no cursing in it, and it definitely may not be as funny as the movies, but c'mon, if you look past that, there's some really funny stuff on here. Clerks the animated series is a great little package.
Anyways, this is Clerks the animated series. It comes in two discs. The first 2/3 episodes on the 1st disc were the only ones aired on ABC (why it got cancelled I still don't know to this day). The other 4 are the rest of the episodes that never made it. Anways, it features the characters' voices from the Clerks movie, Brian, Jeff, Jason, and of course Kevin on here. Anyways, there's at least 3 really funny parts in each episode. Like Jay teaching a monkey how to smoke, or the constant bashing of Charles Barkley (who's actually on it). My fav. episode would have to be episode 3 where Jay sues Dante for 10 million for slipping on a puddle of soda. Instead of the jury, they have the NBA all stars players on there At the end, it throws a curveball and goes Japanese animated. You have to see it to see why it's funny.
Anyways, if you love all the Kevin Smith movies, you really don't need this. But if you're a Jay and Silent Bob fanatic, this is defintely a neccessary DVD.
