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>

A piviotal collection of animation that difined cartoons of this decade.
28 November 1999 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Wow. Where to begin? Liquid televison was a major factor in my life. Well, entertainment wise at least. I was just barely old enough to start enjoying MTV when this baby aired. I can distinctly remember the varying styles of animation this series brought. From the sci fi realism of Aeon Flux (with her death in every episode), to the live action plastique look of dog boy, L. TV was a gallery of creativity. This show did indeed spawn some of MTV's most popular animation shows as well, like the aeon flux series (a less condensed version that folowed a story, unlike L.TV's one shots), and Beavis and butthead. Kudos has to go to MTV for even showing these twisted toons. It's a shame that L TV is no longer around. Even it's spinoffs (head, aeon flux, beavis and butthead) are no longer around. Still it's nice to see after all these years (8 to be exact) people still remember liquid tv. I highly recommend you try an catch an episode on one of MTV's animation festival weekends. There is a new incarnation of L TV, entitled Cartoon sushi, but to me it lacks what L TV had. It would difinatly suggest you pick up a L TV tape also, it's much more then worth it.
