On October 27th MTV finally goes back to their roots…, not with music videos, but with the 90’s series Beavis and Butthead. For you young’uns out there, these guys were doing crazy shit years before MTV had Jackass. True visionaries.
Created by King of the Hill mastermind Mike Judge, these dim-witted and lifelong friends (both voiced by Judge) mocked all kinds of music back when MTV still cared about putting music on TV. Now, with a new decade comes a new target for the boys of Highland, Texas.
With the world so focused on reality TV it’s a different playground for these pair of verbal assassins, and a perfect storm of comedy for us, the viewers, to enjoy. This new iteration of the series will see Beavis and Butthead take on the cast of the Jersey Shore, 16 and Pregnant, viral videos and Ultimate Fighting.
Beavis and Butt-Head, America’s favorite culture critics, are back. They now have more than just music videos to make fun of: Reality TV, the Internet, and Ultimate Fighting will all be crossing their TV screen! Brought back by creator Mike Judge, Beavis and Butt-Head are dumber than ever!
As an added bonus here’s a clip from the upcoming episode “The Holy Cornholio”
It just makes you want to pull your shirt over your head and re-watch a copy of Beavis and Butthead: Do America.
Squee! San Diego Comic Con, the media mecca for comics, movies, television, video games, toys and more, is a little over 4 weeks a way (July 21-24) . Good lord we can’t wait! Oh, FYI NerdBastards will be in attendance. Luke Gallagher and Mrs. NerdBastards (aka Luke’s mistress, life coach and supplier of NOMs) Crystal H. will be doing some field reporting, schmoozing with celebs, and procuring as much swag as we can. We’ll also be on hand to meet with any NB fans in attendance. Come say hi (Will be wearing NB t-shirts, as scene on splitreason.com). Tell us how much you love us, or how much you hate us. Either way, we’re happy to meet you. Though, if you say some shit, that nullifies your chances of getting any free fan appreciation swag from us. Also, warning to the busty nerdy girlies out there, Luke is a weak and very perverted man. Stay at-least 5 feet away.
Anyway, as the dates come closer and closer, news on guest appearances, panels and other festivities will be rolling out. At the moment, thanks to TV Line, we have a list of what TV shows and stars will be in attendance.
I can’t believe I’m about to post news that was confirmed by girl-voiced urchin Justin Bieber, but the Biebs got the goods – that 1990s animated staple “Beavis and Butt-head” is returning to a squawkbox near you.
As St. Louis’ Riverfront Times astutely points out, Bieber recently Tweeted that he was in New York City to relax all cool and shoot some b-ball outside of school*. But wait, there’s more! He also went to MTV’s upfront presentation and learned that the former music channel is gearing up to bring our favorite dimwits back to tv.
“Beavis and Butt-head” is scheduled to return this summer after being off the air since 1997, except for a few repeat runs on MTV and other cable channels. There’s nothing on IMDB about Mike Judge returning to the show he created, but you’ve got to imagine he’d want to influence a new generation to mouth off and blow crap up, right?
What do you think about the news? Are you stoked for B&B’s triumphant return? Do you miss the duo singing “Good-bye to poop?”
Or would you rather leave the great Cornholio looking for TP in that animated wasteland in the sky?
* The Fresh Prince lyrics have no importance here. I just wanted to use them.
I guess it is true what they say – “Everything old becomes new again.”
In the early to late 90’s, there was a television show on MTV created and directed by Mike Judge (who later went to to create the animated show on Fox, King of the Hill) that focused on the misadventures of two inept teenage boys who were obsessed with rock and music videos. They would commonly make fun of anything and everything, including each other, as well as make numerous insults and sexual references in every situation.
It was a huge hit on MTV, and even spawned a movie in 1996 entitled Beavis and Butthead Do America. And now, it looks like for the first time since 1997, they may be getting another chance.
With Extract being released this weekend and the genius of Mike Judge resurfacing for air like Howard Hughes, I have come to a quite brief and quick to the point request. In the same vein as Family Guy being cancelled and brought back, I WANT BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD BACK!!!
There! They changed the way a whole generation of 7th graders spoke. They coined phrases that didn’t exist. And besides Howard Stern, they were the most controversial thing of the early-mid 90’s! With all new music videos to rip on, and mini sketches in between? If South Park has the longevity, and Family Guy got picked up again, Bunghead and his sidekick Crevice can summon Cornholio to Lake TittiKaKa!!
Beavis And Butthead discuss Mike Judge’s new film “Extract”
May I digress for a moment…What the fuck?! Beavis and Butthead, where have you been!!!??? King Of The Hill has been on FOREVER and you guys left after 3 or 4 seasons! Come back to us, like Family Guy, it would be Huge again!!!!
