This is a compilation of early music videos released by the unique musical duo of John Linnell and John Flansburgh. They Might Be Giants released their first album in 1986 and immediately began producing videos to coincide with their unusual lyrics and sophisticated imagery. During the '80s, the band built up a huge following on college campuses. Their bizarre sense of humor and irreverent wit shines through on this 15-minute collection, which includes, "Purple Toupee," "They'll Need a Crane," "Ana Ng," "(She Was a) Hotel Detective," "Don't Let's Start," and "Put Your Hand Inside the Puppet Head."
