Nostalgia ain't what it used to be
15 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Having moved from eastern Canada to Vancouver, BC in the year that the legendary clown JP Patches finished his long run as the king of kids programming on Seattle TV, I heard many wistful references to his greatness. Much like the New York cable access Uncle Floyd Show, I knew of JP's supposed wacky wonderfulness but had not had the pleasure of seeing the show. So I was pleased to come across the JP Patches DVD Collection.

Well, this hacked together two disc set may not be a fair representation of JP's many years of zany antics but what is here does not hold up well. More a reminiscence than actual full episodes, it is difficult to get a sense of the performer's appeal. And the originally interspersed cartoons that would have kept a child's interest are not included. I can watch kids' shows that were before my time and enjoy them - Soupy Sales comes to mind - but JP Patches' skits play more like time fillers than comedy. For Patches Pals only.
