It’s happened. They’ve returned. We knew it was coming. And now, it’s here. After more than a decade, one of the crudest, most divisive, and simply funny cartoons is making its way back to MTV, ready to repeat various fits of laughter. It is, and they are, Beavis and Butt-Head. Everything starts up tonight, October 27th, at 10pm on MTV – the same place the boys called home in the mid 1990s. Much has changed in the time since they abandoned their couch; namely, the TV they used to make fun of doesn’t exist any more. Gone are the days of music videos on MTV, replaced by reality shows, Jersey Shore, and other programs. Luckily, creator Mike Judge decided he’d just have B&B take advantage of the situation, and let them make fun of those, instead. Uhh huhhuh huh.
In the premiere episode, B&B take note of the Twilight saga’s success. Inevitably, they notice that whether you’re a vampire, a werewolf, or some other monster, the supernatural get girls. Thus, it is there plan to seek out these powers – mistakenly thinking a sick man on the street possesses them. Hours after being bitten by the man, the pair think they’re invincible; when they’re actually just incredibly sick.
Fans of the original series can delight that Beavis and Butt-Head are basically the same, unevolved characters from their 1993-1997 run. In many cases, it will seem like the show never went off the air, and thats exactly the impact Mike Judge hopes to have in their return.
