The greatest cartoon ever made was ASTROBOY, ph33r astroboy and is unmatchable coolness.

Daria blows my ass
2002-01-22 07:26:22 PM  
Daria kicked ass...I'm gonna miss the smart-mouthed little biatch.

Remember kids, if FARK doesn't like it, YOU don't like it!

Everyone knows a girl like Daria, a self-important superego with emotions ranging from apathy to antipathy. Daria is another testament of the pathetic attempt of suburban youth to stand up and create (or steal) a counter-culture... however, their attempts are all for nought because the suburbs are a cultureless zone, and the negative of zero is still zero. I hate people like Daria, because they are self-defeating and stifling, a wet blanket on everything including themselves. I think it's good to take Daria off of TV and stop kindling the flame of adolescent female idiocy, as well as that of pathetic immasculated male admiration. My only hope is that the final scene in Daria's last episode is that she gets hit by a bus, and the bus has an advertisement for "The Real World" on it, as some sort of metaphor for how full of it she is and how much growing up miss maturity actually needs to do, and a funny MTV series-to-series inside joke. I don't watch MTV though, so I don't really care. The satisfaction I have of imagining it is all that counts.

Who actually gives a Fark?
And Blumf and Permafrost, AEON FLUX IS A 70-YEAR OLD BIATCH WITH PURPLE HAIR!!! She is a dog! Besides, she ripped off anime.

That Daria show was a bore! I think I got through an episode once, but I was on LSD, so don't ask me to remember it.

I think BobNever hates Daria because she's way smarter (even as a fictional character) than he'll ever be.

Daria rocks. I imagine she's what Janeane Garofalo was like as a kid.

Invader Zim is gone? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!
2002-01-22 08:27:59 PM  
oh yes, tom green! people say I remind them of him. i rant and scream like a lunatic... perhaps that is why. LOOK AT MY BUNNY!! LOOK!! LOOK AT MY BUNNY!! LOOOOOOOOOOK AT IT AND STARE IN AMAZEMENT!! actually that bit reminds me more of Jhonen Vasquez, but whatever.

I would kill to get Winter Steel videos.

And without Daria in the way, MTV can schedule even more Nsync and Backstreet Boy specials! We all win!

Daria was pretty cool. A little pretencious though, it seemed like everyone in that show was nice to her in the end. Her sister, the 'cool' kids. I mean, she didn't really have that much to complain about.

I remember one eppisode when Daria got contacts, and she was worried that if she wore them, people would think she thought that she cared what they thought of her. And no one bothered to point out the idiocy of such a sentiment. It just seemed like a lot of daria's angst was just there for no reason.

But other then that, I did like the show. My favorite character was probably that one girl with braids in the fassion club. Ah well. It's a good show, and all those who didn't like it are fags. (there, I wanted to get into the fark spirit)

I was the daria of my school, well sorta, anyways the show was neat and it will be missed by many. Atl east now i can take MTV off my channals list.

Deep Daria...very interesting.
2002-01-22 09:24:05 PM  
Er, Autopr0n: All angst is there for no reason.

Teletone / Cinetoon (The English and French versions of Canada's own cartoon channel) still air Daria, The Head, and The MAXX. They dropped Aeon Flux a while back, but may bring it back soon - they do that a lot.

And while we're on the subject, since they're being replaced with UNDERGRADS, THE BEST FARKING CARTOON EVER, and Mission Hill, which is pleasantly hi-quality, I'm not crying. Even though Daria was good stuff.

Oh, Teletoon/Cinetoon airs Mission Hill and Undergrads, too. They're on right after The Oblongs, Friday through Monday.

MTV went to hell the moment they put on crap like Remote Control, or whatever that lame attempt at a game show (a game show!!!) was called... From that point on, music was forgotten, along with the reason MTV was appreciated by so many to begin with. I must be getting old.

I do Daria's sister, though. If she weren't animated, that is. Oh, what the hell, I'd do her anyway.
2002-01-22 11:24:25 PM  
How I loved her...............
2002-01-22 11:42:43 PM  
I watched Daria once and the characters were standing outside a "Lackluster Video" store. That was funny.
2002-01-23 12:44:31 AM  
OTOH, Remote Control is still the best game show that's ever been on MTV.

Oh, and since (amazingly) no one has linked a Daria pic yet...
[image from too old to be available]

this pic is incredible

(a GIS on Daria yielded some surprising first-page results)
2002-01-23 12:54:43 AM  
Yeeeaahh, if you could go ahead and quit posting Daria pics that would be greeat, thanks...
2002-01-23 02:01:13 AM  
If you could develop some taste that would be great too, but I don't see either happening.

I mean, if you don't like Daria, what are you doing in this thread? Get distracted by something shiny and wander in by mistake?

And that's MY stapler, dangit!

Nothing can touch space ghost: coast to coast.

I think Savage_X came here expecting the Daria-bashing suggested by the headline. But don't bash shiny things, Zylon! I like shiny things too! You know why? Because they're shiny! So there! Oooh, look! A crow! *runs off towards the crow*
2002-01-23 03:03:34 PM  
that biatch from aeon flux has got to be the ugliest cartoon character i have ever seen.
2002-01-23 03:06:50 PM  
oh yeah, and tom green is a farking idiot. he was funny, until he stopped making up funny sketches and decided that just having sex with animals and whatnot was funny enough.
2002-01-23 03:26:58 PM  
My friend Emily wrote this article (and no, I didn't post this link). Cool.
2002-01-23 05:52:00 PM  
Man, I really liked Daria. It was the only reason not to delete MTV from my tv's memory. I even stayed up until 3AM watching episodes and then went to work at 9AM last week.
Well, at least I don't have to suffer through those stupid commercials for tv shows about real life a-holes anymore.
