Daria ranked twenty-fourth in a list of 56 girl icons.
24. Daria The heroine of MTV's animated series got her start on Beavis and Butthead, where she was known as "Diarrhea" and used by the runts as a verbal bedpan. Last season, Daria got her own spinoff; of all the (actual) female personalities who have slummed their way through MTV, Daria is the only one likely to resemble a actual girl viewer. She's a plain-looking social outcast who is tormented by her popular, infantile sister Quinn, and patronized by every adult within a 200-mile radius. She's smart, caustically witty, and not afraid to be either. Daria's like the Dorothy Parker of surburbia, minus the sozzled chain-smoking.
