As America's Funniest Home Videos gained in popularity, the producers found that many people were starting to stage their own situations, rather than depending on random chance to grant them a winning shot. This program was created to give these amateur film producers a chance to show off their creativity and perhaps win the $100,000 grand prize. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Now that I can watch this show from an adult's point of view, I realize how dumb most of it was. The videos sent in from viewers were what made it really stupid. Some were funny, but most were people doing really kiddish and/or disgusting things. I am a fan of Dave Coulier and he is funny. He was usually funny on the show, but it was the clips sent in by viewers that made it so dull. The only funny parts were the the videos from the show like "This old shack," "Dunk your parents" or "Jack Ching Bottabing." Why can't they show funny things from American viewers? I guess too many people here have quite a dry sense of humor! Most of the clips were better than America's Funniest Home videos and Coulier was MUCH better than Bob Saget! At least he didn't narrate each scene in his falsetto voice. Dave's lines in between clips were funny, while Bob was so dry on his show that REAL people didn't even crack a smile to his jokes! I grew up watching both Saget and Coulier on Full House and still like that, but cannot stand either AFHV or AFP! Both are funny to kids, but adults know what real humor is!

If you wanna see some REAL humor, go watch Three's Company, Mad TV or Saturday Night Live. If your kids wanna see humor, don't expose them to this, unless you want them performing those dumb stunts! Have your kids watch "All That" to find humor!
