Adventures in college freshmen tomfoolery.
MTV is kind of like the creative boiling pot for cartoons that often die before their time. Aside from a few late-night 90s sleeper hits such as Beavis & Butt-Head, Liquid Television and The Maxx, the channel hasn't had much success with animated television. The one exception that I can think of would be Daria, who really seemed to capture the tween and teen angst-ridden audience during its run (myself included).
I suppose that just like any other large studio, the MTV execs figured that they could apply the same basic formula of teenage social outcasts to any animated series and expect it to get the same results. Among this inbred ilk, Three South is among the shortest-lived series with only 11 episodes of a total 13 making it to air. The show itself was a strange brew of Daria's social cynicism, Revenge of the Nerds and the 1995 film Angus.
Never rising above its predecessors, Three South was swiftly shelved on sister station MTV2 before finally given the axe in 2003. Fans of Superbad! might take note of the series as it shares the same spirit of adolescent rebellion against the idiotic tyrants of society, but after watching a few episodes online for the sake of nostalgia you won't necessarily find yourself asking for a comeback.
