Clerks: Uncensored [2 Discs] (Full Screen)

Clerks - The Animated Series Un
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 MedrosSee all Product Description

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).Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
