I remember The Maxx.  It was one of the better cartoons on MTV; maybe second only to Daria.

It was based on Sam Kieth's comic book series.  Here's a link to a page with some info.

I haven't seen it, but there's a trailer for it on one of my Beavis & Butt-head vids. It looks far out and clool...

Holy crap. I LOVE The Maxx. In fact, I just watched the entire series(edited down to 2 hours and put on VHS) a couple of weeks ago. I was trying to get my nephew to fall in love with it, since he's the same age I was when I first saw it.

He didn't understand any of it, I don't think. Few people do. Hell, I'm not sure if I understand it. But something about it seemed to affect me profoundly back in the day.

I used to have every issue of the comic, but I think my parents threw them away when I wasn't looking, because now I have no idea where they are. Even though it started out with hokey comic book-ey dialogue, every aspect rapidly improved.

The TV series only covered the first 11 or so issues. There was a lot of very dramatically involving material after that. I wish the comic had kept on going, instead of just kind of ending for no reason at issue #35.

I remember way back when it was coupled with another of those crazy MTV cartoons, "The Head," maybe?  With the alien that popped out of the guy's huge head and saved him from danger? Wasn't that it?

Anyway, I only saw a few episodes of "The Maxx," and, being like 8 at the time, really had no idea what the heck was going on. Besides, since it was on "late" for me then, I rarely got to see two episodes in a row in order to find out what exactly went on.  I've tried to find episodes online, but I just can't seem to locate them.

There's also a trailer on one of my Beavis & Butt-head vids for The Head too. This guy runs along with a huge head, and when he tries to go through the door his massive head hits into the top of the door. It looked pretty clool  cool...

Wow!  I have The Maxx on video!  I loved it, in fact, I should dig it out and watch it again.  Made no sense whatsoever, but still great.

I remember The Maxx myself.  I never really got into it.  I was more into The Head and Beavis and Butthead at the time.  All I remember about an episode I saw of The Maxx was one where he had to save a woman from being kidnapped.

Yeah.  The Head was pretty cool.  It was a strange show, but it was strange in a way completely different from the way that The Maxx was strange.
