Educational? Yah, by golly! “Connie Gomper and the Pack” features Connie’s history of the team from “Bart to Brett,” with rare archival newsreel clips, exclusive NFL Films action footage, and special appearances by Coach Holmgren, Brett Favre, Aaron Taylor, Gilbert Brown, and record-setting receiver Robert Brooks who serenades Connie with his original song “Jump in the Stands.” Connie also introduces you to such fellow fanatics as Mel and Leonne Knocke, who have missed less than a dozen Packers games since 1929, and Steve Gay, whose 1966 Dodge motorhome, the “Big G,” is a Green Bay icon! All-in-all, Connie’s created the only video on earth that’s more fun than a Sunday afternoon in Green Bay!

From the VHS box:
Your every fear — all in one deadly enemy.
It can be anything. A fanged monster that won’t stay on the movie screen. Something ominous lurking in the basement. No matter what your biggest fear is, no one knows It better than Stephen King.
Based on the King Of Horror’s 1986 bestseller, It is a jittery, jolting excursion into personal fear. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown, but It is not clowning around. Instead, It terrifies youngsters with their innermost fears, bringing some to their untimely doom — until a group of wily neighborhood kids fight back. Thirty years later the evil resurfaces: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And the friends who vividly remember the terrors of their youth reunite to make a desperate stand against It.
