With her patented cynical one-liners and black, round-shaped glasses, Daria Morgendorffer of MTV's cult animated show 'Daria' was the prototypical, overly smart teenage outsider.

On air for a total of five seasons from 1997-2001, 'Daria,' a program that lifted the veil of high school phoniness, provided a niche for all the sarcasm-spewing teens out there.

On air for a total of five seasons from 1997-2001, 'Daria,' a program that lifted the veil of high school phoniness, provided a niche for all the sarcasm-spewing teens out there.

So we're quite delighted with the news that our favorite irony-loving teenager will soon be coming to DVD. MTV hinted at the cult classic's summer arrival to DVD on the release of their much-loved sketch-show, 'The State,' but now it is confirmed with a brand-new teaser that can be seen below.

Here are our top five reasons why we are totally psyched about 'Daria's DVD release, and why you should be too:

1. For all the moody, teenage outsiders in the world, 'Daria' provided that sharp, incisive worldview sorely missing from other MTV fare at the time, like the numerous, increasingly slight incarnations of 'The Real World'; 'Daria' was truly alternative, in every sense of the word.
2. It was refreshing to see a genuinely astute female character in cartoon form (one other than Lisa Simpson), who most of the time was--in true-to-life fashion--smarter than the adults around her.
3. In its satiric portrayal of boneheaded jocks and cheerleaders, and even Daria's artist-goth besty Jane Lane, the show had an uncanny ability to playfully skewer these stereotypes, reminding you how much you hated these kids in high school. Well, except Jane Lane.
4. The opening theme song: From the raucous guitar-riffing to that iconic "la, la, la" opener, "Daria'"s theme song proved an instant classic, giving the show its recognizable musical stamp.
