La, La, La, La, La: Daria's Coming to DVD!

And it's about damn time. We've been living in a sick, sad world without a certain bespectacled high-school misanthrope, one Daria Morgendorffer. Daria, the 1997 sardonic spin-off of Beavis & Butthead, has been living in post-MTV purgatory since it ended in 2002. Although it endured a longer and more celebrated tenure than some other MTV cartoon greats (R.I.P. Clone High), the only tales of Lawndale to surface on DVD over the years have been the two Daria TV movies: Is It Fall Yet? and Is It College Yet? But rest easy, fellow '90s junkies: there have been rumblings in the DVD world that some sort of Daria release is due in 2010.


Word came from Jezebel via TVShowsOnDVD that on the DVD for another old MTV show, The State, a preview ran for one such Daria DVD. We haven't heard anything more definitive just yet, but the simple thought of it is enough to make you break out the combat boots, do your best Quinn impression and debate the unresolved Mystik Spiral name-change in anticipation.

AHH! I'm seriously thrilled about this to a very Quinn-like level... Daria would not approve, but hopefully she'll take my money in 2010 anyway.

whoever wrote this article is a moron and did zero research prior to posting. I have owned the box set for a few years now. It's a six disc set which includes the complete series, the unaired pilot, both made for TV Movies and tons of bonus material and extras. If you google it (like i just did ten seconds ago) you can find it for around $30. MTV stopped production on it years back because of failing sales. Maybe they are bringing it back with all the work they've put into promoting The State but this is certainly not the first time it has been available on DVD.

actually MTV never actually released it on DVD because of copyright issues. (They never got permission to use all the music in the show). So the copies that you see online are actually bootlegs. But it's awesome that you it anyway.
