  • Episode Description
  • While doing his stand up act, Jerry takes questions from the crowd. One of the questions is "where did the series come from?" An often asked question, Jerry responds by showing a videotape he's prepared. The video includes his first appearance on "The Tonight Show" (6 May 1981), interviews with his managers, his co-creator Larry David, executives from NBC and Castle Rock, his fellow cast mates, and other people involved with the production during the early years (the pilot through season. All of this is interspersed with numerous clips from the show. At the end when asked if they are going to do a reunion show, Jerry answers "Ah yes, you've just saw it, I hope you enjoyed it." This is followed by several bloopers.moreless

  • This special chronicles the history of Seinfeld,and it is also kind of like a mini-clip show.

    • This 45 minute (sans commercials) TV special is an abridged version of the 65 minute 'Seinfeld: How it Began' documentary found on the Seinfeld Seasons 1 & 2 DVD set.

    • Lee Garlington, who played Clair in the pilot was not seen or mentioned, despite the fact that she was intended to be an official cast member. Jerry actually goes out of his way to mention that they needed to find a female lead.

    • We learn in this special that all of the crazy noises Kramer would make, were improvised by Michael Richards.

    • This 60 minute special aired a couple days after the Seasons 1&2 and Season 3 DVDs were released.

    • First time for Seinfeld to return to NBC since 1998, also airing, as it did when on the air, on Must-See-TV-Thursday, although this time it is on 1 hour later.
