We must be smart - our brains are as big as walnuts!
So I watched the first DVD of the 4 DVD "Dinosaurs" set and I was very happy to find it as hilarious as I remembered it. Just plain laugh out loud funny. But probably a little too much for my 6 & 7 year olds. Admittedly, much of the humor would probably go over their heads, and they've probably heard most of the swear words around here (although very rarely), but still, it's an adult humor and they probably wouldn't get most of it without an explanation that I'm just not prepared to give right now:-)
The baby is still one of the funniest characters ever on TV. And it is more than just "Not The Mama!". I had forgotten just where I had originally heard the "Again!" that I frequently say. And "Gotta Love Me!" is as funny now as it was when Dinosaurs first came out.
The episode on The Hurling was side-splitting funny. This is where the husband gets to toss his mother-in-law off the cliff into the tar pits on her 72nd birthday. We get introduced to his ascerbic mother-in-law, Ethyl, and she just cracks me up. When she called Earl "Fat Boy" (and the baby echoed it!), I busted up. And when his boss at Wesayso, Mr. Richfield (voiced by Sherman Hemsley), welcomes Earl into the fraternity of hurlers by showing him a videotape of his hurling, and they watch Mr. Richfield's mother in law fly off the cliff in slo-mo and reverse, it just killed me! Luckily, I get along great with my mother-in-law (always seemed to be the prudent course), but the way Ethyl picks on poor Earl is priceless.
I can't wait to watch the other three DVDs!
