I AM THE BAD PHOTOSHOP EFFECT!


« on: January 19, 2009, 05:05:41 PM »

For those of you who are old enough to remember a time when MTV was actually entertaining.

The show was Liquid Televison.  It was a half hour of animation shorts (some live action) done by various artists/catoonists/ film makers etc.  Some of MTV's later shows like Aeon Flux and Beavis and Butt-head were first shorts on this show.

Now there are probably numerous resons why this show hasn't been released to DVD.  Mostly likely that there would be hundreds of different people to contact and pay royalites too.

Anyway, it was from a time when creativity still counted for something.

Some of the shorts were released with the Aeon Flux DVD set.  But plenty have found their way onto youtube.  Here's an example

Now I do feel old; yes I remember...I also remember when M2 came out and it was supposed to be all music videos; all the time. That didn't last long either...

I reacall the Beavis and Butthead episodes on there as you mentioned.  Particuarly the one where they go to a monster truck rally.  Aeon Flux always confused the hell out of me.

I remember Liquid Television, it's not THAT old.  I was pretty young when it was on and probably shouldn't have been up as late as I was.  I also really enjoyed the Brothers Grunt but know one else really liked that one.  I like how they communicated with weird yelps and fart noises and.. grunts I guess.

I remember when we'd wait and save our pot and smoke it right before Liquid Television came on.
That show was trippy to watch when you were stoned.   TongueOut

I still proudly hang my Frog Baseball! poster I won at a carnival when I was bout 8 years old.  B&B was a great show, as was Liquid Television.

I always loved Liquid Television and its spiritual successor Cartoon Sushi. One of the segments that always stayed with me From LT was the weird series where they had live actors but they were wearing weird vinyl clothes and wigs like that weird family in those battery commercials from 10 or so years ago. I think the series was called "Wolf Boy" or something to that effect? Crazy sh!t. Buggedout
