VHS HELL: Just For Kids!

VHS HELL
JustForKidsFront
My knowledge of the Just For Kids Home Video label is limited to a stack of VHS tapes which all have a clip at the very beginning of Noel. Noel, how I loath him. If the Just For Kids videos hadn't been recorded at EP we wouldn't have needed Noel to tell us to use the tracking.

Who is Noel? What became of Noel? Where is Noel today? Why does Noel get to adjust the tracking without help from Mom or Dad? All I know is recorded on this tape. A testament from twenty years ago, when VCRs ruled the earth. Where ever you are Noel, "Let the music surround you, and take you to a better place."

Thanks to VideoChris for sharing this one. It only adds to the enigma known as "Noel."

He has touched people in places they were never touched before!

For more Noel fun, here's a quick excerpt of his appearance on a tape for Gamera where he reminds us this is an LP-mode recording this time, and plugs his "Sampler Collection" at the end...

The more I see of Noel the more I really wonder what happened to him.

Glad to see you responded a day after my birthday (didn't much celebrate it the way I wanted as my sis had to ruin things with having my PC stuck in my bedroom so she could have her dining room again)!

Wonder why I've been MIA for a while. My computer is in the shop for an undetermined period of time. Kinda sucks since I cannot remember any of my passwords to LiveJournal or other venues of perversion I wade in. I do not want to reset them either since that would screw me over on my regular PC, using my dad's for the moment.

By the way, a package may come to you tomorrow of more stuff I had been forced to throw away from my collection (again thanks to my sis). There's some homemade Star Wars parody films and some Taco Bell training/promo tapes of interest to browse through for possible inclusion in later Hell showings (assuming anyone remembers that dog anymore). Sadly I lost some of these recordings I though I had made DVD backups of but my crappy GoVideo deck seems to have not be very nice in doing any favors to me, so in case you can make a DVD copy or AVI's of some of those recordings I've sent you I would be very appreciated thereof.

Perhaps the body of Noel could be stuck somewhere in the junk pile also known as my bedroom (hate having to clean it), a sign of my childhood forever tarnished by those tapes, though to be honest, I hardly ever had these tapes growing up in the late 80's/early 90's, and really didn't know much about Noel until the mid/late 90's anyway, when the statue of limitations had ran out on them, missed the context when they were on the store shelves at Toys 'R' Us and all that.

Wow! Growing up as kid in the early 90s, + having an older brother & sister who grew up in the late 80s...I had tons of VHS cartoons in the family living room. To tell you the truth, I counted them all when I was like 10 and came up with over 400. I still have a stack of them, my favorites mostly. I remember that besides disney, the just for kids label was all over the place. That and David the Gnome + Strawberry shortcake videos. I was looking for the name of one film from Just for kids, got it here, so thanks!

I know of Noel Bloom, Jr. (at least his name gets mentioned in the preview tape). I do wonder what kind of person did he grow up to be? I hope not a manic psychopath, no doubt it all comes back to haunt you later!

Just like me (though not being a basketball coach)!

Well at least he went on to a good life somewhat.

And because I "subscribed" to this post, I know now the truth! I'm sure if I didn't, this would've been brought to my attention sooner or later from someone else!

It's good to know that Noel is still out there and doing something.

Christopher Sobieniak said...

At least the 15 seconds of fame haven't gone to his head!
