Do you remember the MTV character Daria Morgendorffer? Originally, she was a character on Beavis and Butt-head before starring in her own show. At the time when the Daria show premiered on MTV, the character and I were about the same age. It was (and is) eerie to see myself as a cartoon character!
"Daria, the title character, is the poster child for "teen misfit," and holds in high contempt what she sees as the shallowness and superficiality of the world around her (qualities which are exemplified by her sister, Quinn). She is also cynical -- though she'd say she's "realistic" -- and mistrustful of authority, and doesn't hesitate to make her opinions known when she sees fit. She has a talent for writing, a sharp intellect, an even sharper tongue (her sarcasm could cut tempered steel), and a wit so dry it makes the Sahara look like a rain forest." Outpost Daria
Now in 2006, appears Ugly Betty. Why did the producers give Betty Suarez red glasses? Red glasses are my signature! The picture of me on my blog does not include my glasses because the picture was taken at a business holiday party and I could not find any other picture of me.
From cartoon character to ABC sitcom star, this Latina would prefer to be the cartoon character and avoid age and blemishes!
