LMAO

I am big Fan of Good Burger and the Leonard Maltin bit must be hilarious. I also happened to go to school with Harriet's real life older sister Irene Tractenburg.

"This advertising campaign includes only TV advertising on Nickelodeon in the U.S. and Canada, as well as print ads in Playboy and Nickelodeon Magazine."

- In all seriousness though, my kids would love a box set like that and I'd be willing to buy it especially since some of the discs include a DTS soundtrack!

Hey, they gotta hit the Carmen Electra audience, right?

good thing I never opened my snow day dvd. I'm e-aying it and buying this set especially since Paramount added more goods to the snow day dvd. Just the extras alone on all these dvds are worth it. I've never seen SO MANY commentaries on 1 box set. The movies are actually VERY funny as well. My cousin is a big fan of these and said this kind of set is a dream come true. So count me in too.

You DO know that this is not real, right?

As the person who suggested the adding of Harriet the Spy to the UNRELEASED ON DVD list, I must decounce this mean, cruel joke.

Here I am, tired on a Monday morning. I didn't realize it wasn't real until the line "(the much-coveted "Good Burger")". Then I looked up and noticed that I was at Angelfire instead of Yahoo.

Those of us with small children, or people like me who merely act like a small child would enjoy a collection like this. $74.95 is a little steep, but I would probably order it from CH for 25% off and have it count as two fulfillments.

P.S. After I realized it was fake, I found it very funny and well done. I loved the end of Chevy Chase and Chris Elliot's careers part.

P.P.S. Not that I'm complaining, but why is Michelle Trachtenberg on the Good Burger DVD.

SHHHHWWEET RELISH HOT BABY JUICY MOMMA PATOOTIE!

It looks like all of our hard work & suggestions to Paramount have FINALLY came to fruition!

I am especially, especially looking forward to the five hour bonus disc!

Take that Criterion Collection, you poopy elitist jerks!

Good Deal. Will they sell them seperatley or do you have to get the box set? I guess the bonus disc will be worth it. So was the Criterion version of Goodburger false?
