Beavis and Butt-head are back! Returning to MTV on October 27, the duo of rock / metal-loving, socially awkward teenage delinquents will be starring in all new episodes after a hiatus of almost 15 years.
Running from March 8, 1993, to November 28, 1997 on MTV, the original Beavis and Butt-head episodes won a cult following with its off color humor, profligate farting, complete lack of intelligence, and (frequently scathing) music video reviews.
MTV has released a preview of the first episode, Holy Cornholio (see below), which it describes as “the bold new standard by which all of television will be judged,” saying that “MTV’s first foray into Emmy territory is a remarkable one.”
Beavis and Butt-head are up to their usual shenanigans in the preview scenes from the new episode that have been released. In one scene, Beavis has screwed any army man to his hand and Butt-head springs to the rescue with a screw gun: “Settle down Beavis, okay this is gonna like hurt you alot more than it’s gonna hurt me”. In the misguided attempt to extract the screw, Butt-head instead screws it in further. A hilarious trip to the hospital ensues. Check out the full preview below:
The preview is only about 5 minutes long and just leaves me wanting more. Unfortunately, I guess I will have to wait until next week. In the meantime, here are the Beavis and Butthead Top Five Music Videos for those who need more:
