Box Cover Summary

"He's fast, funny, and notorious for simply being 'cute.' After numerous appearances on Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin and David Letterman, Seinfeld recently went national with the hottest comic TV series of the summer. Now this one-hour special captures Seinfeld at a comic peak, filmed before a live audience in Los Angeles, introduced by Carl (All of Me) Reiner and intercut with fantasy vignettes that simulate life as seen through a comic's x-ray specs. On dogs, breakfast, cereal, impulse shopping, soap-on-a-rope and the mysteries of the Swiss army knife, Seinfeld offers an hour of live hilarity that'll leave your ribs well tickled.


The box cover feats a review by the Orlando Sentinel newspaper claiming "Seinfeld's a giant hit!"
