“Beavis and Butt-head” Back to MTV with new episodes!
The two dimwitted heavy-metal fans, Beavis and Butt-head, from the fictional town of Highland may be back with new adventures and wise-ass comments reminiscent of the MTV before Laguna Beach and The Hills.
Supposedly Creator Mike Judge has been working on 30 new episodes to return to MTV in the show’s original crude style. Though MTV has not released any official comment on the project, the New York Post claims to have confirmed the hopeful speculations with a source at MTV. This move would be characteristic of MTV, who has plans to increase the percent of scripted or animated shows to “diversify” the otherwise, heavy-reality TV programming.
Motivations for resurrecting the classic slacker characters after 13 year of hiatus go beyond appeasing the show’s die-hard fan group who immortalized the duo’s many pearls of wisdom, which often included phrases such as, “ass-munch, “fart-knocker,” or “butt-hole,” followed by uncontrollable laughter or awkward pelvic-thrusting dance moves.
In an attempt to backtrack from its well-earned reality-TV reputation to the days when MTV used to broadcast (you guessed it!) music videos, MTV would do well to bring back Beavis and Butt-head, the rocker teens who spent much of their time on their couch cleverly praising and criticizing music videos between stints frying stuff at Burger World and trying to score chicks. This time though, instead of criticizing Vanilla Ice, they’ll be taking aim at the music videos of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. The return of Beavis and Butt-head very well means the return of music videos to MTV.
In preparation for the coming return of the kids who laughed at every sexual reference, (especially those of you who chuckled at the word “coming”) you can watch volumes 1 and 2 of the Mike Judge Collection on the MTV Beavis and Butt-head website.
Now to pay tribute to the eccentric, the overly caffeinated… the Great Cornholio:
