BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD Officially Returning to MTV This Year

     February 2, 2011

Big, big news: there may actually be a reason to watch MTV after all. Last we heard, creator Mike Judge was busy outlining 30 new episodes of his classic TV show Beavis and Butt-Head. At the time, it was unknown when or even if those episodes would see the light of day, but Judge had faith. Well, it looks like all that early work paid off because MTV has officially confirmed that Beavis and Butt-Head will be returning to the network later this year! The show premiered in 1993 and maintained a wildly successful run through 1997, spawning numerous videos, DVDs, and one feature-length film. Behind all of this madness was creator/voice artist/genius Mike Judge (Office Space).

MTV’s report doesn’t give any information other than the fact that the show will air “this summer.” When we heard that Judge was working on 30 new episodes of the show, it was confirmed that they would maintain the show’s traditional “ghetto-tech” animation style. The two will also be featured doing what they do best, mocking contemporary music videos (ironic, considering the re-branding of MTV has all but exiled actual music videos on the channel). Hit the jump for more.

beavis_and_buttheadThe news of Beavis and Butt-Head’s return was announced at the upfronts for the network in New York City, and subsequently tweeted by (cringe) Justin Bieber. If you’re like Bieber, and are too young to actually remember the show, it centers on two high-school burnouts who spend their days mocking the television, being rude, and generally getting into multiple slap fights in each episode. So it’s time to start freshening up those Cornholio impressions, because Beavis and Butt-Head are back!

    OH HELL YEAH!!!!!!

  • Ian

    I’m only 18 and I used to watch this when it was on (I know, I have wonderful parents). Anyway, can’t for this to be back.

  • Lame Duck

    This is awesome!!! One suggestion though…can MTV ditch all of the reality and teenage candy drama shows and replace it with…gee I don’t know…music?

  • Momo

    Bring back Daria!!!

    • jrod

      Beavis and Butthead followed by Daria would rule!!

  • Fallendeathspider

    i heard it was gonna be a full cgi cartoon instead they were making it into in a recent interview,maybe because cgi cartoons appeal more to todays viewers and audience

    • Lame Duck

      Eh…I’m a HUGE fan of CGI in all but I hope Bevis and Butthead stays in 2D with the crummy 90′s animation style. Even though the animation wasn’t that great, it worked for the series and complimented the whole attitude of the cartoon.

  • Sparky

    Hopefully this will spark a new era of MTV…where they actually put on music and music related television instead of the shit that’s on there now.

    Not saying Bevis and Butthead is grade A television but at least they talk about music and show music videos.

    I have avoided MTV like the infected, puss and disease ridden pirate whore that it is. It needs to go to Adultswim or Comedy Central (Still Viacom/Mtv) so I don’t sully my tv screen. FFFFFUUUUUU Mtv…

    But welcome back boys, it is now okay to: Smoke, Say “fire”, paint your neighbors house, get high sniffing paint, actually “kill a bunch of people once”, kill frogs with bats and saw off a crickets tweeter with a chain saw.
    Look how far we have come in 12 years!

    You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely wide for me. I’m having a look forward in your next publish, I’ll try to get the hold of it!
