Good family entertainment, funny, good music
5 February 1999 | by DWebster-2See all my reviews

Comprises many segments which include comedy sketches and

musical videos. The comedy sketches include a variety of

subjects that mirror real life, while the musical portions are

very well done. Although this is an older video, it is more or

less timeless in its ability to entertain.
