The Jimmies Present: Trying Funny Stuff DVD/CD Review
When we first saw this DVD/CD set we were intrigued. “What is this?” we thought to ourselves. After we cracked open the nifty little case it didn’t take us long to figure out. The Jimmies Present: Trying Funny Stuff is, just like the package says, “A scrumptious assortment of quality videos magically trapped inside!”
Still don’t get it? Let’s start with the story behind The Jimmies. This group of four guys in neckties plus one girl with a vibrant voice (called a quintet) from NYC write silly, mostly upbeat songs full of fun and humor and the occasional little bit of education. In Trying Funny Stuff the musicians present their songs as recorded performances and in video.
We loved listening to the music and especially watching the videos that came in this set. They kind of reminded us of something you’d see from Pee-Wee Herman. Spanimals is a tribute to Latin music with a little language lesson tucked inside; Bedhead, on the other hand, is a rock song about messy hair that combines live action and animation. We’re sure this will make kids everywhere giggle and hum along to the tunes.
