Daria Has Got A New Show
Serena Carsley-Mann - June 26, 2018


By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

Daria probably wouldn’t be too pleased if she knew that she was the star of one the biggest cartoons of the 90s, seeing as she was best known for her cynical teenage personality.  Despite her lack of positivity, people adored her so much on the Beavis and Butt-Head show that she even got her own show!


The Daria show lasted for an entire five seasons on MTV.  And now, in 2018 since we’re all starting to run out of original ideas for TV shows, Daria is being rebooted into a whole new show.  Together with this exciting news is also the fact that MTV has released a new production unit, known as MTV Studios, and they’ve got some new and exciting shows up their sleeve.


Truth be told though, Daria is all we really care about.  The reboot of Daria has a new title Daria & Jodie, which will be a show about two smart women who are ready to take on the world, as they break down barriers of social classes, gender, race and popular culture.


What we’re really wondering is if Daria will have a cellphone.
