The character Daria was conceived as a dry-witted comic foil to counter Beavis and Butt-head's stupidity on Beavis and Butt-Head (1993). See more »
The Miss Barch character would not pass today, not because of her extreme feminist views, but because her character advocates domestic violence towards men. Throughout the series there are clips of her assaulting male characters on the show. She also has a strong disdain for Kevin and Upchuck. That wouldn't pass in real life if a teacher threatened to perform violent acts on students. See more »
During the closing credits, the show's characters appear in various costumes. See more »
When syndicated for the cable channel Noggin, much of the swearing and mature dialogue and situations was removed from episodes to fit the channel's demographic. Some episodes are not shown at all due to the more "adult" themes. See more »
Funny, Smart, and dare I say it,...CUTE(for a cartoon character)!
I'm 34 years old as of this writing, so why do I like this spin-off of Beavis and Butt-head? The sarcasm of Tracy Grandstaff will sting you with laughter, not to mention Miss Morgendorffer's refusal to go along with the "conform-or-die" mentality that's forced upon teenagers, whether it's from her elders, the popular creeps, or the various counter-cultures. Imagine a girl like her in previous decades of teen-dom. Her attitude toward peer pressure is close to the one I had when I was in high school (..and now feel even stronger about), as is her Dad's seething resentment toward the people who robbed him of the "joy of youth."
Long live Daria. If the show doesn't last, may it's legacy do so.
