It’s been quite a few years since we saw our old pals, Beavis and Butthead, the pair of lovable cartoon juvenile delinquents regularly seen on MTV in the 90s. Created by Mike Judge (King of the Hill, Office Space), the duo first appeared in an underground cartoon called “Frog Baseball” that proved popular enough for them to get their own show on MTV in 1993. Here’s a clip of what young viewers were enticed by, back in the day:
Of course, when they weren’t engaged in their mindless antics, they could usually be found watching music videos, and providing their unique and comical commentary. Here’s a little clip of their reaction to Milli Vanilli and Journey:
And now comes the exciting news for fans everywhere that Beavis and Butthead are returned to MTV with a collection of all-new episodes. No word on an exact date, as of yet, but one thing is certain – no music video made during their absence is safe from being skewered by the irreverent pair. One can only imagine, for example, their reaction when they get their first look at Lady Gaga.
As we get ready for the return of this classic 90s cartoon, we want to hear from our readers. Were you a faithful fan of Beavis and Butthead in the day? Were you forbidden from watching their antics by protective parents that didn’t quite appreciate their brand of humor? And, most importantly, are you eager to see them return after all these years? Share your thoughts with us at Retroland as we remember this truly one-of-a-kind show.
