''Liquid Television'' is an Emmy award-winning anthology animation program, produced by Colossal Pictures, that ran on {{MTV}} from 1991 to 1994, with the first season also running on [[Creator/TheBBC BBC Two]] concurrently with MTV. It has served as the launching point for a number of original series that later became popular on their own, such as ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead'', ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheHead''. The bulk of ''Liquid Television'''s material was created by independent animators and artists specially for the show, and some previously produced segments were compiled from festivals such as ''SpikeAndMikesSickAndTwistedFestivalOfAnimation''. MarkMothersbaugh composed the show's theme music. There were also a large number of animation pieces adapted from the work of Art Spiegelman's comic compilation, RAW. RAW featured underground cartoonists such as Mark Beyer, Richard Sala, and Peter Bagge. In particular, ''Dog-Boy'' by Charles Burns was based on the artist's series from RAW.

** ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'', which aired on fellow MTV Networks station Nickelodeon, premiered three years after ''Liquid Television'' ended. Like ''Liquid Television'', it was an animated anthology consisting of various shorts from independent animators (with one short, ''Life With Loopy'', sharing a studio with ''Joe's Apartment''), however aimed at a preteen audience.
