Storyline

A collection of animated shorts, from a variety of non- mainstream producers, in a wide range of styles, including traditional ink and paint, claymation and computer graphics. Some of the shorts were satirical, some psychedelic, and some just weird. A few of these shorts (most notably Beavis & Butthead) gained a wide following and eventually grew to become full series of their own. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Absolute brilliance
9 October 2002 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

A regular show on MTv, when it was still on the cutting edge of creativity and non-conformism, Liquid Television featured a series of funny/disgusting/dumb/ingenious/disturbing shorts, mostly animated cartoons, but quite a bit of CGI, simple drawings, etc.

When I first went to college in 1994, this was on of the shows my friends and I would stay up to watch. It's bound to be remembered as an essential part of the Gen-X subculture (if you want to call it that).

Liquid Television is best known as where Mike Judge got his big break, with a demented little cartoon about two stupid losers named Beavis and Butthead, which everyone knows went on to have their own show (and equally important part of Gen-X) and eventually a feature length film. Judge, of course, went on to make "King of The Hill", one of the most popular shows on TV today.

During a time of great originality and artistic expression, Liquid Television was a testament to the fact that people can and do understand new ideas and appreciate them. Unfortunately, it is long gone and probably would not be appreciated in today's mass-produced, assembly line, politically correct media.
