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

The TV show ran only 2 episodes long, and got cancelled afterwards, but this set holds the 6 completed cartoons that were produced at the time, all enjoyable and funny when you know Smith's brand of humor.

The only downside is the sound effects, most of which comes from a sound library and sometimes they are quite far out from what we would have expected (ex.: a paint brush sounds like slime... yeah that far out). Oh and also the swearing is mostly absent from everything else Smith has ever done. It's not that big of a deal, after all, we ARE in a cartoon.

All in all, it's a very satisfying way to spend a rainy saturday afternoon even if the special features department is pretty thin.

The six episodes are pretty funny. In my opinion the best episodes are: "The Clipshow Wherein Dante and Randal are Locked in the Freezer and Remember Some of the Great Moments in Their Lives" and "Leonardo Leonardo Returns and Dante Has an Important Decision to Make", as well as parts from "Dante and Randal and Jay and Silent Bob and a Bunch of New Characters and Lando, Take Part in a Whole Bunch of Movie Parodies Including But Not Exclusive To, The Bad News Bears, The Last Starfighter, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Plus a High School Reunion". A lot of the series could be funnier, but it was overall an awesome show, and is way better than Family Guy and all those other "adult cartoons". If it wasn't cancelled, the parts that didn't work super well would be improved, and I really think that it could have been one of the really famous cartoons of its genre. Definitely worth it for Kevin Smith fans, and even non-fans, if you ask me.

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).

I would still suggest that you own this one for the occasional viddy. So much contrast are the reviews of this set from fans and non-fans alike. I guess I'm in the middle. While a lot of the episodes seem to be just filling time there are quite a few light spots that make drudging through the episode worthwile, especially for some safety/amusement tips by Jay and Silent Bob at the end of a few episodes (a la G.I. Joe and "Knowing is half the battle"). The episode where Dante and Randal get stuck in the freezer could have easily been left out, you may want to skip to the end of that one. An amusing recurring character, Leonardo Leonardo, the Clerks arch-nemesis, is voice-acted by Alec Baldwin. Other celebrities are mostly impersonated. You want to see a funny episode? Be sure to watch the one when Dante gets taken to court presided by Judge Reinhold (yes, the actor). The end of that episode left me gasping for air last time I saw it, but I'll let you find out why. The pre-episode banter with Jay and Bob is great, especially when Jay adds a few words that were supposedly "omitted" from the series.

Around 2 years ago when South Park was at its peak, ABC attempted to buy the show from Comedy Central. ABC wanted something to combat the Simpsons. They wanted an edgey "hip" animated show. Obviously that deal fell through (can you imagine SP on ABC??) So ABC bought the rights to Clerks. It already had a cult following, so they gave it a "chance". I remember being interested in this show. They delayed it for a good while, then ran one commercial for it during the Super Bowl. "coming in May" That was the extent of the marketing campagin for Clerks. I never saw another promo, didnt know what day it aired, let alone the timeslot. So I missed it. All two episodes. I dont know why ABC expected stellar ratings right off the bat for this show, but they did. The lack of promotion, running episodes out of order, and far too great expectations killed it. (This is from the same network that gave birth to and supported the horrendous "The Critic" for over a year and a half) Obviously this show is tame compared to Clerks (movie) but it is still very entertaining. Once you get past the terrible promo, its a great ride. Highlights include the tongue-in-cheek "flashback episode" the AWESOME lawsuit episode, and the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom parody. The last episode (ToD parody) really showed promise. It contained more witty banter than the other episodes, along with the same outrageous situations from the others. Smith really reached for the core View Askew audience on this one. This show had the potential to be the torch-bearer for the ever fading Simpsons, (Futurama is entertaining in a lowbrow sense) it REALLY did. Perhaps HBO will pick it up (or even FOX.Read more ›
