Do It Yourself DVDs

Things like, Do It Yourself Home Improvement or Do It Yourself Plastic Surgery, may not be suitable for everyone but the Cartoon Network has created something all of us can use! Assuming of course that you own a computer and watch and enjoy their shows. Introducing the wave of the future: Do It Yourself DVDs.

The program has launched with about 100 episodes of Adult Swim programming, “that appeals largely to teenage boys,” according to The Hollywood Reporter, and “by year’s end, its entire originals library of more than 1,000 episodes from more than 30 series will be available.

Are you sick of owning the same DVDs that your nowhere friends have? Do you only want the Mooninite episodes of Aqua Teen? The funniest Tim & Erics to impress your girlfriend? Rarer and perhaps less amusing shows that have never seen the light of DVD? Perhaps a mix of all of the above? Get on in and cram your DVD full with our treasure trove of television. Then, design your own label, give us $20, and we’ll send your precious creation to you.

You can fill approximately 110 minutes of programming on the DVD which, depending on the shows you choose, is not all that much. Right now your options are Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Drinky Crow Show, Lucy Daughter of the Devil, Robot Chicken, Sealab 2021, Tim and Eric, The Venture Bros. and The Young Person’s Guide to History.

Upon launching the builder you realize you have three limited designs to choose from for each the case, menu and disc. I had a completely different idea of what “design your own DVD” meant before I looked into it but I still think it’s a cool idea. It would be infinitely cooler to be able to upload your own designs but I’m sure that would prove a lot more hassle for Time Warner who owns the company.
I think it’s a good experiment and a nice idea if you’re looking to get a friend into the Adult Swim shows and want to highlight the best episodes. I’d like to see them expand this to a larger set better for mixing-and-matching down the road. Charge $40 for two or three DVDs perhaps. What do you think? Would you buy something like this?
