A show where people send in their home videos of situations gone awry in hopes of winning $10,000 for funniest video of the show, and then have a chance to win ten times that amount, $100,000, for funniest video of the season. The most common videos usually feature slapstick physical comedy arising from incidents, accidents and mishaps. Other popular videos include humorous situations involving pets or children, while some are staged practical jokes.

The show was rebranded to just AFV in 2001.

Theme LyricsEdit

The Funny Things You Do (1989-1996 version)

We've got laughs from coast to coast
To make you smile!
A real life look at each of you
To capture all that style

You're the red white and blue
The funny things you do
AMERICA! (2x) This is you

Stories from your friends next door
They never told
You might be a star tonight
So let that camera roll

You're the red white and blue
Oh the funny things you do
AMERICA! (2x) This is you

The Funny Things You Do (1996-1997 version)

Home videos, home videos
SUNDAY!
You're the red, white, and bluuuuuuuuuuuuueeeeee!
(instrumental) Hey!

We've got laughs from coast to coast
To make you smile!
Oh, A real life look at each of you
To capture all that style (Yeah)

You're the red, white, and blue
The funny things you do
AMERICA! (2x) This is you

Stories from your friends next door (next door)
They never told (told told)
You might be a star tonight
So let the cameras roll (Oh yeah)

You're the red white and blue
The funny things you do
AMERICA! (2x) This is you

In one Simpsons episode, Homer watches a film by Hans Moleman called "Man Getting Hit By Football". Hans gets hit in the groin and Homer laughs hysterically. He says, "Give that man the $10,000!" The film host replies with, "This isn't America's Funniest Home Videos!", but Homer thinks the ball in the groin was funny and he tells him to roll the clip again.
