What can we say about this Comedy Central series? Political
incorrectness, bad taste, fart jokes and lots of laughs. Volume 1
includes: "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe," "Volcano," "Weight Gain 4000,"
"Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride," "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig," and
"Death." The kids foil a plot to assassinate Kathie Lee Gifford in
"Weight Gain 4000" and come to terms with their dog's homosexuality in
"Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride." They also confront the Grim Reaper in
the euthanasia-issue episode, "Death." Volume 2 offers six more
outrageous episodes, including the hilarious Halloween "Pink Eye"
zombie-fest episode," "Damien," the Omen spoof featuring a wrestling
match between Jesus and Satan, "Starvin' Marvin," "Mecha-Streisand,"
"Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo," and "Tom's Rhinoplasty. Each volume (a
three tape set) is $39.95 (available for US only).

- Books: The Animated Film Collector's Guide, Worldwide Sources for
Cartoons on Videotape and Laserdisc by David Kilmer ($32.50).
This is an
indispensable tool for all fans of animation, as well as academics and
researchers. In the age of video, nearly every film is available
somewhere, but how do you go about finding it? This useful guide lists
nearly 3,000 animated films and their video sources, including telephone
and fax numbers and postal and e-mail addresses. Included are many
hard-to-find films, as well as a listing of more than 200 films that
have won major prizes at animation festivals and/or placed in animation
polls. "The Animated Film Collector's Guide" will become the first and
quite possibly only place that fans of the genre will consult to track
down sources of animated shorts and features.
