I would love it, especially something like "Liquid Television" or "Cartoon Sushi", both of which were great showcases for up-and-coming talent and independent animation. Unfortunately, the chances of MTV returning to this medium are slim to none.
I doubt it. I heard MTV is getting out of scripted programming due to low ratings, and returning back to reality shows and music. Shame too, it'd be nice to see a good cartoon from them again.
Well, anything is possible.
When I said "anything is possible", it's more to do with that MTV Animation continue on in streaming. After all, we are getting a Daria spinoff focusing on Jodie.I doubt MTV will show animation or anything scripted on their channel any time soon, but that will soon be irrelevant. I do not care if MTV just has reality TV garbage on their channel, they can take the good ideas they used to have and put them on streaming. Not only comedies like Beavis and Butthead, but weird drama and action shows like the Maxx and Æon Flux. The Maxx is interesting in that it is one the most weird and depressing cartoon shows I have seen, a super hero deconstruction before that became popular.
Viacom/CBS is the smallest of the big entertainment companies, so they should take some more risks, rather than trying to coast all the time.

Well, I didn't necessarily mean that animation should return on MTV, after all.But that's one show, rather than bringing back the Liquid TV as a concept. For the most part, MTV is happy airing their reality TV shows (which never held my interest) and one or two animated shows are not going change that. Which is fine, but back in the 90s Liquid Television presented an array of experimental animation that I do not think fit with MTV today (like the Maxx and Æon Flux), but that stuff may work on streaming. Love. Death + Robots is more akin to that stuff than anything MTV airs now. I think reviving Liquid Television online, may not be a bad idea, just sell its content to Netflix or put it on CBS All Access, I think there is a market for the cartoons MTV used to make, it is just not on MTV itself, for the most part.
