YMMV / Golden Book Video

  • Awesome Music: The "Mesozoic Mind" song from the 1987 Goldenvision title Dinosaurs: A Fun-Filled Trip Back in Time, as performed by Charmer.
  • Funny Moments: In the Sesame Street story "Big Bird Brings Spring to Sesame Street", The Count is supposed to count his bats, though his performer was unavailable, so they had the bats themselves do the counting instead. Also in the same story, the effect of Maria (renamed Dolores due to her being recast for the video) slipping and falling on the ice is pretty funny as well.
    • The limited "Picturemation" animation effects often unintentionally fall into this territory, too.
  • Memetic Mutation: In recent years, the Golden Book Videos have become an ample source for several YouTube Poops, including most popularly, Big Bird Brings Death to Sesame Street.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Some of the early videos take this to the extreme by making scenes more intense or dramatic, such as the adaptations of Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Richard Scarry version) and What Was That! Not to mention the ominous closing logo seen on some of the earlier videos, involving a comet collision in outer space!
  • Stylistic Suck: These adaptation videos are somewhat infamous for this.
