Alterations and Review

This set has met with much criticism by fans, especially on Amazon.com. The overall rating for this compiliation there is 2.5/5 stars.

Much of the criticism centers around some key factors: the fans seem to want Season Box sets, not "best of" compiliations, the skits shown often have missing footage that the aired footage includes, and there are 5 minutes of commercials on each disc before the menu is displayed. Despite these flaws, the collection has much to its credit, including a generous amount of special features.

This DVD release includes 40 episodes from the series (which ran a total of 200 episodes). However, fans have pointed out that some of them have been altered from their original aired versions; footage is missing from several skits, including:

1-900 Beavis

Late Night with Butt-head (an intro with David Letterman is removed)

Figure Drawing

Held Back

Tainted Meat
