Western Animation / The Head

Go To
Wow! His head does look big.

The Head is a animated series that aired on MTV from 1994-1996 about a young man named Jim, who wakes up one day to find his head enlarged thanks to a purple alien named Roy residing in it. Together they and several other friends go on adventures.

The Head provides tropes of:

  • Animation Bump: The first three and a half minutes of the first episode looks crude compared to the rest of the series.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Dr. Elliot in the opening Alien Invasion arc. He had more screen time than the alien villains, but the invasion was always the real threat.
  • Bond Creatures: Roy is able to communicate with Jim when they're far apart.
  • The Cameo: In the first episode, Butthead gives the federal agents a tape recording of a eye witness news report involving Roy's attack from earlier in the episode, then he gets kicked out.

  • Evil Counterpart: Gork to Roy, Dr. Elliot to Dr. Axel.
  • Expy: Dr. Axel looks pretty much like a middle-aged Beavis.


How well does it match the trope?
