| The best of early 90s experimental animation.
Liquid Television was a series shown on MTV in which animators, directors and producers could feature their own creations and characters in wildly different forms and genres. Some could be live-action, some were computer CGI (a pioneering technique at the time) or hand-drawn, some were done with puppets and some were stop-motion. Pretty much, this was a wonderful show for people who love all kinds of random, bizarre and crazy animated shorts.

If it were not for shows like Liquid Television there'd be no Aeon Flux, Beavis and Butthead, King of the Hill, Daria or Office Space. But there were also many other lesser known characters and segments such as Dog Boy, The Art School Girls of Doom, Psycho Gram (which were brilliant!), Bobby and Billy (also brilliant), Winter Steele and Joe Normal. Basically all of the weirdest experimental stuff MTV could find.

I used to watch this on TV when I was 10 years old and I must say, for my fertile imagination at the time, this show was light-years ahead of the tame, PC crap that kids watch these days. I do wish a complete anthology of Liquid Television was put on DVD instead of this lame 'Best Of...' DVD that's OOP. Come on Paramount, why are we waiting?
