New York, NY — Mike Judge (“Beavis & Butt-Head,” “King of the Hill,” Office Space) and Don Hertzfeldt return with another collection of incredible animated short films when THE ANIMATION SHOW: VOLUME 3 arrives on DVD June 3, 2008 from MTV Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. This DVD brings together the best work from The Animation Show’s 2007 theatrical program, as well as additional groundbreaking shorts. The collection compiles some of the latest work from today’s leading independent animators including Mike Judge, Don Hertzfeldt, Bill Plympton, Joanna Quinn and PES, showcasing an enormous array of great animation rarely seen in the United States. The Animation Show DVD series will continue to bring more artists and unseen classics into the spotlight. In addition, a 30-minute special featuring some of Volume 3’s standout shorts is set to air on MTV2 on Monday, June 2, 2008 at 9:00 PM. With an introduction by Beavis & Butt-head, shorts featured in the special include PES’s YouTube hit “Game Over” and the award-winning short film “Versus.”

In addition, Mike Judge is set to launch the all-new 2008 theatrical tour of The Animation Show in June of 2008. After personally handpicking over two dozen of his favorite animated shorts from around the world, Judge has assembled an incomparable collection of work from some of the great animators of today, as well as some up-and-comers. Top-notch animators such as PES, Smith & Foulkes, Dave Carter and Joel Trussell were commissioned to create some truly amazing new work expressly for this tour, while emerging comic talent Steve Dildarian (“The Life and Times of Tim”) will premiere his work theatrically for the first time. In addition, some of the greatest work from abroad will see U.S. audiences for the first time. The 2008 tour promises to be every bit as groundbreaking for adult animation fans as the 2007 collection.
