    One of the Kidsongs tapes, either I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing or A Day at Old MacDonald's Farm. I remember getting those as birthday presents.

      Family collection aside, the first VHS that I could declare my own is Batman Forever.

          I wish I could remember. I'm sure my parents bought us some sort of old Disney movie, or one of the My Little Pony VHS tapes that was out back then. I'm sure it was early '80s. Sadly I can't remember the LAST VHS tape I bought either before we converted to DVDS. I'm sure it was an older movie that was on super reduced sale because they were bringing in DVD's and Blurays.

            My first VHS tape was Lady in the Tramp. The box (like most VHS tapes) had a plastic sleeve with a paper jacket inside. I was 5 when I got the tape, and peeled off the plastic sleeve, thinking that it was not supposed to be on there. My mom taped the paper jacket to the case using wide clear packing tape, to create a makeshift sleeve, since the plastic was gone.

              we got our VCR in 87. the first tapes I owned were Foghorn Leghorn, Heckle and Jeckle, and the new three stooges cartoon. The first tape I bought with my own money was White Men Can't Jump.

                I don't remember what was the 1st VHS tape that me and my parents owned. But I do remember what was the first thing that we recorded onto our VCR. We recorded the 1983 Sugar Bowl and the Madonna music video Like A Virgin. My dad was a real big fan of her's back in the day.

                      Labyrinth. We got it before we even got a VCR to play it on (remember the days of renting VCRs from your local convenience store?)

                        Like...the first VHS tape I ever personally bought? That's a TOUGH one, it's been so many years. I think that may have been a copy of a classic 1945 horror film called Dead of Night.

                        On my trips to the video store around the late '90s, I started to get OBSESSED with all things horror. Y'all remember how when you browsed the aisles in a Blockbuster, Hollywood Video or wherever, the colorful cover art of the VHS tapes would just pop out at you? That's how I got into some serious horror classics and obscurities. I remember actually special ordering Dead of Night and being super excited about it! Good memories.

                        don't you carry nothing that might be a load come on, Ease on down Ease on down, down the road"

                          mine would have been The Best of The Martial arts. it was basically a compilation of the greatest kung fu fight scenes of all time. I probably watched it 100 times or more as a kid-teen. Jackie Chan, Jean Claude Vandamme, Bruce Lee, Samo Hung, Eric Roberts, list goes on (although i think eric roberts was just an actor playing a fighter.... lol. here's a link to the beginning of the movie, have a nice nostalgic time, on me! enjoy!

                              Either a Betty Boop video which a half an hour long or a Disney sing along songs tape. I got the tapes right around the same time and I would watch them all of the time. I can still remember going around the house singing the songs from my Disney video.

                                  When I was about 10, a kid came to my birthday party and brought me Pinnochio. I loved that movie, but in mid 1980s it got loaned out to my brother and his familys VHS player ate the tape.

                                  I was upset, cause for 1, it was my only tape, and for 2, they didnt even buy me a new one..
