This spin-off animated show from Beavis and Butt-head, created by by Glenn Eichler and Susie Lewis Lynn, originally ran on MTV from March 3, 1997 to January 21, 2002, for 65 episodes of 21–22 minutes each divided in to 5 seasons. There were also two TV-Movies of 66–75 minutes.

It was about Daria Morgendorffer, smart, acerbic, and somewhat misanthropic high school girl, who first appeared as a recurring character in Beavis and Butt-head. She was first shown on December 29, 1996, and by March 3, 1997 (nine months before the Beavis and Butt Head show ended its first run).

The show often referred to the unfortunate circumstances that usually affect teens as well as references to pop culture, especially music. The series followed Daria through her awkward high school years and ended eventually with her graduation and acceptance into college.

It was widely praised for versatile storytelling and for the well-drawn characters, making all kind of critics about high-school life, popular culture and especially then-current pop music.

By 1998, Daria was one of MTV's highest rated shows, with the network's manager Van Toffler viewing her as "a good spokesperson for MTV, intelligent but subversive".

This show of the 90s show was also credited together with Beavis and Butt-head as helping to fuel MTV's growth in the 1990s to a general entertainment network as well as to encourage other networks to make cartoons like South Park and King of the Hill.
