I did some digging around for this. I remember having this tape as a kid. I found the clown with a gun bit hilarious and would watch it over and over. I didn't remember what system this commercial was for. When I initially searched for this I started searching for CDI and finally went to wikipedia to search for other early disc based TV systems.
Clown With a Gun looks like a hella fun show.
I think you're right. Both boys look like members of the original Barney line up.
It's funny how we felt a duty to watch this tape. It came at a time where my family didn't have a very large VHS collection.
wow, that is some fine, fine character animation on that purple bird...cat...thing
There's no way this isn't a 2016 made parody of a 90s video.
Uh, no, the Latin name of Tyrannosaurus Rex is not "Kiddis Eateruppus". The Latin name of Tyrannosaurus Rex is Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Selling this as an educational tool; no wonder it went nowhere!
It's fascinating to me how so many companies tried to make these sort-of-like-a-PC television boxes that all failed because everyone just ended up overlooking them and getting a PC anyway when they got cheap enough.
I lived in one of the 50 or so American households who owned a Phillips-Magnavox WebTV System. Those were dark days indeed.
What's funny about these is how they tried to be what the Playstations and Xboxes of today try to be. They're selling themselves as something beyond a game console.
I knew this old dude who swore by webtv! He was using that shit way later than you would ever imagine it was still active.
webtv always seemed pretty cool to me! Back in 200X I spent sometimes hours just trying to convert some youtube video to a video I could put on a DVD-ROM, just because I was having a get-together and didn't want everybody to have to huddle around the computer.
except for that there's a song in LOOM that makes the guy's head explode like a tomato! What a wonderfully fucked up childhood I had

Lots of gif worthy moments in this one.
If only 80's and 90's TV had more clowns with guns!
