Storyline

Ripley's Believe It or Not! is a curious format, sort of a 'Guiness Book of Records'-like magazine on TV. It has no permanent cast or storyline, just a presenting host in the castle-type LA residence who occasionally shows curiosities from 'Ripley's vault' there, but usually simply introduces the topics shown in the various, rather short film sequences shot all over the world, in addition to which some weird facts (e.g. absurd laws) can be quickly reviewed. Each report -usually independent, follow-up is rare- is on something very unusual, surprising and/or spectacular, such as inventions, stunts and records, freak creatures and - accidents. Sometimes the title is taken literally when a few of the least likely items are bunched up for the viewer to guess which one isn't true. Written by KGF Vissers

Ripleys has it own niche!!
4 September 2009 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

What I loved watching the Ripley's believe it or not! DVD was that it had the similar wacky, weird stories and at the same time it did not had any ads!! My favourite was to watch the pet stories - the dog that skate board around town and the cat that has manners, that was pretty cool. Stories have a great combination of being cute, others amazing and some leaving you disgusted. There was one in particular where a guy loses his face and a surgery had to be under taken. There are a few out of the world fashion costumes like that of body painting and one that puts precious stones on the body just enough that it is covered!! For the people who love action with accidents - killer motorcycle accident where the the guy lives to see the daylight, but at the same time, there are these guys who jump walls, similar to parkour but it seems like a combination of gymnastics, dance, ballet and just hanging around.

Overall, its a nice and leisure watch!!
