Teen Rebels is a 6-part animated series created by EliNinja. The series was rated TV-PG-LV in the U.S. for minor coarse language and some violence. The series was aired on the MTV cable network from November 19 - December 24, 1995 for 6 half-hour episodes. The show is focused on three 15-year-olds who go by the names of Ted (an art-interested male teen), Ken (a full-out teenage rebel), and Macy (a sadistic goth girl). The three are described as rebelious teenagers through-out the show's 6-episode run.
Ted, Ken, and Macy find a car and go on a bit of a joyride around the town. Though they do have fun while doing so, they are continuously hounded down by several cops and activists.
