    Synopsis


    During its initial 13-episode run on MTV, Beavis and Butthead spin-off Daria established the enormous cast of characters and the biting brand of satire that would carry it for four additional seasons. Relocating his heroine from Highland (Beavis and Butthead's hometown) to the similarly fictional suburb of Lawndale, executive producer Glenn Eichler surrounded Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) with a high-strung family and a cool-chick best friend. Beyond these core characters, Daria's writing staff fleshed out the diverse social strata of Lawndale High, from an autocratic principal and several neurotic teachers to junior fashionistas and plain old dumb jocks. Early episodes almost invariably hinged on the attempts of Daria's parents and teachers to overcome her apathy and involve her in extracurricular activities that would expose her to the clueless masses she so despised. It wasn't until late in the season that Daria met Trent (voice of Alvaro J. Gonzalez), the alt-rock singer (and brother of best pal Jane [voice of Wendy Hoopes]) whose taciturn coolness would enchant her for most of the series. Later seasons would explore more grownup themes and relationships, but it's season one that set up the show's enduringly skewed world view. ~ Brian J. Dillard
