Holds up well. An overlooked classic?
14 May 2001 | by (St. Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

I just recently tracked down a used copy of "Elephant Parts" and laughed out loud many times through the show. The comedy really holds up and the songs are excellent. Hopefully, with the advent of DVD, it'll enjoy a wide release again. It was hard to find the first time around and deserves recognition. Now I just need to find the "Television Parts" compilations...
