By Keith_Joseph HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My daughter really wanted this kids sitcom when I mentioned it was quite good and it appeared about the time she was born in 1994. To me, it doesn't seem quite so polished on second viewing ten years on, possibly because the series went into 65 episodes over 5 seasons and it got even better. It features believable and simple plot lines that older preteen and younger teenagers can relate to, and has Clarissa explaining to the audience her thoughts in a less irritating fashion than today's Lizzie McGuire cartoon sequences. At the time this approach was quite innovative and used in cult series of the period like 'Eerie Indianna' and 'Pete & Pete' (also available in DVD sets).

Clarissa's family include her very annoying little brother (Ferguson), her health conscious mom, and her architect dad (Marshall). I particularly like her best friend from next door, Sam, who is always welcome in her room - he uses his ladder to climb through her window at any time they please and it's all refreshingly innocent. In this series Clarissa also has, for a short time, her pet alligator named Elvis - who my kids think gets some of the best lines. The series received many nominations and awards, with Melissa Joan Hart (Clarissa) subsequently going on to super child stardom in the classic hit series 'Sabrina the teenage witch'. My daughter has really taken to this series one, and watches the episodes repeatedly. It's a cheap 2 DVD set with all 13 episodes, plus a few extras, and is well worth the money at under a tenner.

5.0 out of 5 stars fab 20 July 2013
Format:DVD
My daughter has watched some of Clarissa dvd's and totally loves them. A very good buy. I recommend Clarissa dvd's for fans of Melissa Joan Heart.
Melissa Joan Heart at the end of 2013 published a book Melissa Explains It All Tales From My Abnormally Normal Life. Which I bought my daughter for christmas 213 from Amazon. You can now in 2014 order Melissa Joan Hearts hardback book from amazon. Review by ireadnovels.wordpress.com

3.0 out of 5 stars no English subtitles 18 Oct 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I asked www.amazon.com concerning the English subtitles. They confirmed the presence of them. So I bought the DVD set at www.amazon.co.uk, hoping the item comprises the subtitles. To my disappointment, the set I have received does not feature them. What is the problem: did amazon.com stuff mislead me or not? I would gladly find out it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clarrisa Explains It All Dvd Season One 22 Jun 2005
By Amy Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fun collection of episodes from one of Nickelodeon's best shows. Melissa Joan Hart did an excellent job portraying Clarissa. The show had a wit and irony about it that I loved. Also loved the way Clarissa dressed, her unique fashion sense and how she dealt with all the problems she had as a teenager in a funny way that gave advice at the same time. Theres 2 disks in this set-

Disc One Season One

Episodes

1.Clarissa's Revenge- Ferguson brings Clarissa's training bra to school. Clarissa plots to get revenge with Sam's help.

2.School Picture- Clarissa wants to express herself and her individuality but her mother wants her to dress more conservative or ( dweeby) for picture day.

3.No TV- Mother Janet makes a( no tv for the week ) rule. Rest of family stoops to desperate measures to catch a glimpse of their favorite TV show.

4.Urge To Drive- To earn money to buy a used car clarrisa takes to selling Christmas Cards in July.

5.Clarissa network news- Clarissa wants to be the next Jane Pauley. Mom is having a life crisis.

6.Haunted House- Clarissa's aunt is visiting and she pretends the house is haunted hoping her aunt will leave early. Turns out Aunt is a fan of the supernatural.

7.The Bully- Ferguson is being nice and has Clarissa very concerned.

Disc Two

1.New Edition- Clarissas parents want to have another baby. Ferguson and Clarissa hatch a plot to convince their parents it would be a bad idea.

2.Brain Drain- Ferguson scores high on an IQ test and convinces himself he's a genius. Now hes out to conquer the game show world!

3.Clarissa makes a cake- Clarissa and Sam set out to bake a cake for the parents anniversery. Watch Out!

4.Parents who say No- Clarissa wants to get a job at the local carnival but mom and dad think she is not mature enough yet. When they finally give in, Clarissa wishes they hadn't!

5.Cool Dad- Clarissa teaches dad how to be ( hip ) for her school's career night.

6.Sick Days- Clarissa dosent want to be in the boring school pageant so she fakes being sick. But when the pageant gets revamped she wants in. Too late, now that she's really ill.

Also contains Special Features of Melissa John Hart on MTV Show Cribs. A Nick Time Capsule. 1991-1993. Full screen format/ Dolby Digital.

Overall cool collection of episodes. Highly Recomended.

I also recomended Pete & Pete Season One.

5.0 out of 5 stars There Is A God 14 Mar 2005
By Jason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Current and future releases from this new Rewind Collection that Nickelodeon is releasing deserves its own locked and lighted display case that will stand about 10 feet tall in the rooms of many people who just can't grow up (just like me) and can't let Classic Nickelodeon go.

I encourage everybody that ever watched and loved these shows to buy them as soon as they are released because if they sell well, (according to TvShowsOnDvd.com) Nickelodeon is going to release other shows (beginning with Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Salute Your Shorts and You Can't Do That On Television). Other future releases I'm personally hoping for will be Welcome Freshmen, Hey Dude, The Secret World of Alex Mack, Doug, Rocko's Modern Life, All That (the original cast), Kenan & Kel, well, you Get The Picture (that show too!)

To put it simply, I would personally spend all of my life savings and risk not being able to go to work for a month because I have no gas from the money I spent on every show that ever aired on Nickelodeon (up to Figure It Out), after that, nothing does it for me.

Yep, Clarissa's coming to DVD. So, let's all wait until May 17th (which is now 2 very long months away) for this beautiful piece of angel exalted glory to be released.

And so, we wait...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent set, with a few surprises. 29 May 2005
By Mark Brumfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Needless to say, this was a smart show for kids back in the good days of Nickelodeon when they had more live-action shows before Nicktoons took over. All 13 original episodes are present and in great quality.

Now for the surprises. When this set first came out a few weeks ago, we all assumed that the original opening sequence was still not intact, based on a quick preview of the DVDs. But then once you watch everything more closely, you'll find that the last episode on the set ("Sick Days") has the ORIGINAL opening intact! Nickelodeon deleted this sequence in around 1993 and replaced it with the one we all know where she repeatedly attempts to write her name on the screen. It was never seen again until now when they released the show on DVD. It might have been unintentional, but we can call this as somewhat of an "easter egg."

Another surprise is that Nickelodeon included a handful of their early 1990s Nick ID promo shorts (those 10 second clips they used to play before a show would start). Amazing Nickelodeon thought of that idea. With these surprises and releasing the "Nick Rewind" line of DVDs, there may be hope for more! Lets all get together in a circle, hold hands, bend our heads and close our eyes, and pray for future releases of Nick classics like You Can't Do That on Television, Hey Dude, Salute Your Shorts, Are You Afraid of the Dark, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paramount Does Good With Nickelodean Classic!!! 18 May 2005
By Laurie Lear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Forget everything that you've seen on Nickelodean in the last six or seven years, and take a remarkable journey into what Nick used to be: a classic sitcom. Memories stand in my mind of a happier time, when "Are You Afraid Of The Dark?" was still showing new episodes and Lori Beth was still hitting the cocunts and giving us Vital Information on "All That." And somewhere in this brain of mine, I remember "Clarissa." A show about nothing that became a something in short time. This first season introduces us to the Darling family and, like most first season's, it starts off rocky but smoothes on through the next few years. Now, I can say "Clarissa" was not my all time favorite show, but the reason I am excited about this set is because it shows what might be in the not-so-distant future. However, on the whole, I think Paramount (our new-found leader in this TV-On-DVD obsessed world) has presented a great set that is easy to use and presents everything in a nice, orderly fashion. The mini-cases, which are now customary in these DVD sets, show descriptions for the episodes and features, and while the menus may be devoid of motion or special effects, they present to us the DVD's contents in a way that makes it easy to use. All in all, this set is a box of anticipation for what

Paramount's <-Rewind Collection my be sending our way in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great way to go down memory lane! 13 Jun 2005
By Stararcher83 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As many have commented before me, I was a huge Clarissa fan. I wanted her cool room, her cool parents, and her bravado to do as she wanted fashion wise. I just wanted to be just like her.

So when I found out that this was coming out on dvd, I can't wait to own future collections of Nick Rewind series.

The package is pretty good. I only own one other t.v show by season (Punky) so i'm not sure if the packaging is standard. Two dvd's in two seperate cases in a less then sturdy box. But hey, you shouldn't just be buying this for the case.. right?

The presentation was great quality, surprisingly. I did not like the forced preview's and tried to get to the main menu, but alas you have to sit though them if you want to get to the episodes. The real gem (aside from the episodes themselves) was the time capsule. I sat my siblings down and made them watch them actually and they couldnt believe that they could remember them.

The MTV cribs was out of place, as someone has said before me. I dont know why they thought we would want to see Melissa Joan Hart go on about her love of Gin and Shirley Temple. It's far removed from Clarissa herself and thus.. not exactly meant to be in this collection.

I'm glad I made this purchase definetly. Please go ahead and order it. The more popular the better chance of future collections!
