Daria: The Kick-Ass Cartoon Feminist of a Generation

Daria.

That probably means nothing to alot of people but Daria was the most amazing cartoon on TV when I was growing up back in the late 1990’s.

It followed this moot-smart-ass geek girl who just didn’t give a crap and was so funny- not in a depreciating way but in a genuinely you-are-all-the-real-freaks-and-will-one-day-realize-it kinda way.. It was just sooo good and subversive that I kinda look back now and wonder how the hell it ever made to the TV screen!!

Well, the news is that it’s now on DVD and all I can think is what the hell took it so long and what ( if it exists) is today’s equivalent of Daria??

With all the musicals and hannah montanna chipmunk faces around, I kind wonder if what the world really needs it a bit of Daria-esque inspired realism..
