Spun off from Beavis & Butt-Head, Daria launched on MTV a few months before Beavis ended its first run in 1997. Any fan of the two shows knows that Daria Morgandorffer was the nemesis of the Texas Twits for one good reason. She was their diametric opposite. Smart, cynical, & sassy as opposed to being dumber than a broken lightbulb. Then again.........
Daria did have its resident dimwits in Kevin, a quarterback on the football team who seemingly is never out of uniform, and Brittany, his cheerleader girlfriend, a regular Dumb Dora if you get my drift. We also met Daria's parents and sister, and Daria now had a sidekick in best pal Jane Lane, who probably would be another one that Beavis & Butt-Head couldn't deal with.
Daria lasted 5 seasons, but remember, in this day and age, cable networks define seasons differently than they have in the past. The series ended with the TV-movie, "Is It College Yet?", which aired in January 2002. Reruns were last seen on MTV a year ago, and prior to that, on sister network Logo in 2010. Viacom, of course, could put the series on any of their channels, but presently prefers to lock it back in the vaults. Yes, the series is available on DVD, by the way.
Here's the open:
According to the Wikipedia page on the series, MTV did have some discussions about reviving the show last year, but after the revival of Beavis did a sudden crash & burn (read: MTV, being run by idiots, decided not to renew it), well......!
