I just got "Elephant Parts" on DVD and it made me laugh the same way it did 15 years ago. Some of the music videos are a little dated but considering this was made before MTV they show how far Nesmith was ahead of the crowd (to the point of poking fun at the format before it was widespread). In fact, Nesmith came up with the music video channel concept but was told no one would watch a 24 hour music channel. Right. The comedy segments still hold up very well and in fact are of higher quality than SNL or Mad TV any day of the week. Highlights are "Neighborhood Nuclear Superiority" and the horror movie spoof "Have a Nice Day". A hilarious and pioneering work, do yourself a favor and buy it right now!
