Liquid Television came to be in the early days of MTV's non-music programming. When it was first launched, MTV was all music videos all the time, but every once in a while, the network would slip in a game show or other kind of series. However, none were as innovative as this (mostly) animated series. 

MTV's Liquid TV was an irreverent collection of animated shorts, introducing audiences to future pop-culture staples like Æon Flux, Beavis and Butt-Head, and Rocko's Modern Life. The anthology also launched the career of Mike Judge (Silicon Valley, King of the Hill, and Office Space), among others.
