NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Metalocalypse is an animated musical comedy created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha. The Adult Swim series is, as outlined by Small, about "a metal band that is about a million times bigger than the Beatles. But a million times more dangerous and a millions times more stupid." The series premiered on August 6, 2006.

Originally, the series was pitched as Deathclock, but the name was changed due to an existing copyright. The series and band bames were renamed to Dethklok in response to the perceived legal issue. This was later extended to Death Clock Metalocalypse (with the band name still "Dethklok") and ultimately shortened to simply Metalocalypse. The "Metalocalypse" refers to the apocalyptic threat that Dethklok represents to a conspiratorial council established to mitigate the damage they cause.

The show is written and produced at Titmouse, Inc. in Hollywood, California. The studio has produced shows such as MTV's Downtown, and The Amazing Screw-On Head.
