The Maxx cartoon coming to DVD

The Maxx

If you’ve been watching The Maxx cartoons over on and were thinking, “Boy, wouldn’t it be nice if I could buy these on DVD?” then have I got some news for you … Heidi over at The Beat points out that Amazon has a listing for The Maxx: The Complete Series. No release date is listed yet.

The cartoon adapted the comics by Sam Kieth, which were published by Image Comics back in the 1990s. The Maxx lived in two worlds — our world, where he was a bum, and in a surreal Australian outback, where he was a hero. If you’ve never seen it before and wanna check something out that’s a bit off the beaten path, it’s worth watching the streams on

(Fans of MTV’s crazy 90s cartoons may also want to know that The Head will also be available via Amazon).



The interesting bit to me was that the DVDs seem to be POD. I’m guessing there will be some packaging/labeling involved, but it would seem to me more efficient if MTV simply pushed these through iTunes or another digital download service and let users burn their own DVD-Rs.

I have the Amazon POD DVD’s for the Rocko’s Modern Life cartoon and despite my initial reservations, they actually came out really well. The packaging and DVD menus are all professional level quality. The only issue for some people is that the DVD’s themselves are unplayable in computers or some older DVD players.

I already have the Maxx set on order, for whenever it comes out…
