We (Colossal Pictures) had the great opportunity to work with MTV from the very beginning. We did the animated identity animation pieces, promos, backgrounds for VJs, music videos and, eventually, Liquid Television. Liquid Television was mix of in-house productions like Aeon Flux and some out-of-house shorts like Beavis and Butthead.
ON TV was one of the first subscription TV services. They had a big party in 1980 when they reached 100,000 subscribers. Inconceivable today. This show bumper was produced via backlit animation by Doud Film Inc
