Toonbarn’s Holiday Special Recommendations: Beavis and Butthead Do Christmas


Toonbarn’s Holiday Special Recommendations: Beavis and Butthead Do Christmas

Beavis and Butthead wasn’t really the type of cartoon that you would watch if you want your spirits uplifted, as the show is about two dim-witted stoners straddling the fine line that separates failing at life and barely getting by through luck, but the show is far from depressing: the bright colors, the edgy humor, and the fact that the status quo is always preserved makes every episode of Beavis and Butthead very lighthearted (provided that you’re not easily offended by crass humor). The same holds true for their Christmas specials.

A Beavis and Butt-head Christmas was released on December 19, 1995 and consists of two segments, each parodying an iconic Christmas story, with Beavis and Butthead serving as the focal points.

The first story is “Huh Huh Humbug,” which is a parody of A Christmas Carol, with Beavis as the Scrooge. In his old age, Beavis has become the grouchy manager of Burger World. While trying to watch a naughty movie, Beavis was visited by a trio of ghosts: Tom Anderson, Mr. Van Driessen and Coach Buzzcut.

The second story is “It’s a Miserable Life,” which spoofs It’s a Wonderful Life, and follows Butt-head as he is visited by his own guardian angel, who shows him that everyone who has known him would have had a better life if he was never born.

As for the availability of A Beavis and Butt-head Christmas, it was first released on VHS on September 17, 1996 nd was then released on DVD on October 1, 1997. In 2002, it was then featured on one of Time-Life’s The Best of Beavis and Butt-head DVDs, along with the series’ Halloween special, “Bungholio: Lord of the Harvest.”

The following two tabs change content below.
