Following the tradition of MTV's previous animation show Liquid Television, this was the show that followed a few years later was basically a collection of various animated shorts made a variety of different cartoonists.
Jim and Roy, a friendly violet demonic-looking alien that inhabits Jim's giant head, must stop an alien invasion. Misguided FBI agents and a manipulated mad doctor stand in their way, but Jim finds allies.
Yes, this is a terrible show. That, unless I'm mistaken, was the point of the show. It was never intended to be anything but exactly what it came off as being - an obnoxious, vulgar presentation of the most base and banal jokes the writers and artists could make. I hated it but loved it at the same time. Although it wasn't to my taste, that does not make it bad, only "not to my liking." It was an exceptional example of Pop Culture for the time.
The artists did a great job of reflecting the cartoons' anti-social message in the drawings. A perfect example of this are the "pulling veins" scenes. I couldn't watch those segments without feeling sick to my stomach! The content was such that the writers could go way overboard with subtext. They didn't hesitate to do so. Years from now, if someone watches one of these cartoons, they will be able to see the worst of the times in which they were produced. That reflection of the perversity of our times is, if anything, worth noting as something of value. Society is most notable not for what is taken from textbooks, it is - sadly - what we can glean from pop references. The legitimate press will cover our minds and leanings from the higher level. The Brothers Grunt and Beavis and Butthead will pad the picture for those of a more plebeian bent.
