In the 1990s, MTV was known for, among other things, some iconic animated television shows, including Beavis and Butthead, Aeon Flux, and The Maxx.
Arguably the most relatable and grounded of all MTV's animated hits was Daria, which premiered 20 years ago. The series followed the titular character, a high school student who was both incredibly bright and brutally sarcastic, who did her best to survive the high school social scene as someone who was entirely anti-social.
Despite being very rooted 1990s culture, Daria still feels just as relevant today.

"A lot of the issues and feelings you have in high school are timeless," co-creator Susie Lewis tells Entertainment Weekly.
That very relevance, and the fact that the characters were so well-written that they felt like actual people, led Lewis and character designer Karen Disher to wonder where the Daria cast would be today, two decades later.
"It had been a long time since I watched the show, but this brought back such great memories and reminded me of how much fun it was to create Daria," says Lewis.
