Allow the fine folks at The Educational Archives to whisk you away to a more innocent time -- a time when the hypnotic flicker of the classroom projector bestowed endless wisdom upon the students of our nation's schools and misinformation flowed faster than the mighty Mississippi. Not only does The Educational Archives: Limited Edition Lunchbox set offer viewers a chance to view four Educational Archives releases that have otherwise gone out of print, but, packaged in a snazzy metal lunchbox complete with thermos, it's the only box set that can keep your soup warm as well as it entertains!

This set consists of The Educational Archives, Vol. 1: Sex and Drugs, The Educational Archives, Vol. 2: Social Engineering 101, The Educational Archives, Vol. 3: Driver's Ed., and The Educational Archives, Vol. 4: On the Job. As one could imagine, given the age of these films, image quality varies wildly throughout. Though debris abounds in the majority of the films and skips come fast and furious, this merely adds to the warm sense of nostalgia offered by these classroom staples of yore. The option to view the films in "Classroom Experience" mode (which simulates a projector noise) on the discs for Driver's Ed. and On the Job only adds to the experience, and as one might expect, the quality of the English Dolby Digital 5.0 and Mono soundtracks varies almost as much as the visual presentation.

Though bonus features are limited, interactive film strips on the first two volumes offer viewers the option of learning all about the birds and the bees and overcoming personal fears, and notes on each film by collection curator Skip Elsheimer give a brief overview of the content therein.


No, we only ship inside the US

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.

We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.


All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.

Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.

Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.

If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.


We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
