To date, Tom Tom Club released two independent DVD's which have been for sale during live shows and on the official Tom Tom Club website.
Time to Bounce (DVD-single)
In September 2001, Tom Tom Club released their first-ever DVD single "Time to Bounce" on TipTop Music.
The "Time to Bounce" video samples from the James Rizzi and Tom Tom Club animated classics "Genius of Love" (1981) and it's sequel "Pleasure of Love" (1982). By digitizing the original animations and restructuring them, the original animaters, Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel, created a brand new fresh video for the song "Time to Bounce", from the 2000 album "The Good the Bad and the Funky".
Also available on the DVD for the first time is the classic "Genius of Love" video, winner of the 1982 MTV Best Animated Video award and winner f the 1982 New York Film Festival Silver Award for Best Short Animated Film, with the all new "Genius of Love (Old School 2001)" audio track in Dolby 5.1 surround sound and stereo.
