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>

The definitive TV animation of the '90s
23 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

A brilliant and often demented collection of artists and the then experimental MTV gave us a new look at what animation could accomplish in the '90s. Combining animation, CGI, live-action and puppets, we got anything from 15-second bites to season-length serials exploring the adventures of such characters as bad-a** biker puppet "Winter Steele," pi**ed-off flower "Crazy Daisy Ed," the plastic-haired live action story of "Dog Boy," and those precocious youth "Bobby & Billy," and more than I can even remember. Don't forget this is the show that introduced us to "Aeon Flux," "The Head," and "Beavis and Butt-Head." This show changed my life. Well, sort of.
