Liquid Television

Show Summary

Welcome to the Liquid Television guide at TV.com. What words come to mind when you think of Liquid Television? Perhaps smart..funny..dramatic...maybe even weird. Liquid Television was THE show for "up-and-coming" animators to show what they got. Originally shown on BBC-2 in December of 1990, MTV picked up the show in June of 1991, and lasted 3 seasons. Who said that cartoons had to be drawn by hand? This show combined computer animation, drawings by hand, paper cut-outs, and even live action to make something entertaining for the viewers. A total of 8-15 animated shorts were shown per 30 minute episode (24 minutes without commercials..though times have changed). Broadcast History (MTV)* June 1991: Sunday, 7:30 PM Sept. 1992-Nov. 1992: Tuesday, 10:00 PM Jan. 1994-Mar. 1994: Sunday, 11:30 PM * = only for new episodes. Reruns were always scattered on the MTV schedule to "kill time" Popular Cartoons •Aeon Flux - Aeon Flux is a secret agent from Monica. Her mission is to serve justice to those against her via violence. Only problem is that she somehow gets killed before her mission is completed...but is "rebooted" in each short that follows. •Beavis and Butt-head - Originally featured as two different shorts on the second season of Liquid Television, Beavis and Butt-head are probably the biggest morons you'll ever find...but they only do stupid things because they're bored! Their idea of life is simple: TV, women, and more TV. •Crazy Daisy Ed - Crazy Daisy Ed is an obnoxious and very angry flower. Rebellious ways is part of his life...but the police is there to make sure that doesn't happen. •Stick Figure Theater - What happens when you take a clip from a classic movie and have stick figures act out that particular scene? I'm sure the most curious have asked such a question, and here's your chance to experience that... If you want to add any other popular Liquid Television cartoons to the list, just contribute it (make sure to include a brief description of the cartoon), or post it on the message board. Spin Offs Beavis and Butt-head (1993-1997) Aeon Flux (1995) Awards & Nominations •1993 Emmy - Nominated Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming One Hour or Less) - Japhet Asher (executive producer), Abby Terkuhle (executive producer), Prudence Fenton (producer), John Payson (supervising producer for MTV) For show #11. •1992 Emmy - Won Outstanding Individual Achievement in Graphic Design and Title Sequences - Ken Pearce (designer/animator), Mark Malmberg (designer) Theme Song Composed by Mark Mothersbaugh
