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>

Missing some imporant elements but otherwise awesome!
2 November 2001 | by stemageSee all my reviews

There's no early Beavis and Butthead, no "The Maxx", no dogboy. It's missing some key elements! The stuff that got even bigger later. But even so, if you were a fan of the show, BUY IT! It's still got stuff I forgot about, Stick figure theatre and all. Worth the purchase on DVD for sure...
