Are ‘Beavis and Butthead’ Going to Bring ‘Music’ Back to MTV?
“The future sucks. Change it.” “I am way cool Beavis but I cannot change the future.” –Beavis and Butthead
It’s been 13 years since Beavis and Butthead last aired and they were right: the future of MTV sure did look like it sucked. No amount of sun-scorched guidos could change the downhill spiral of MTV’s programming…until now. Mike Judge, the creator of Beavis and Butthead, is reportedly working on 30 brand spankin’ new episodes of the show.
Jump with us to see if the world’s angsty-est, horniest teen boys back for good and Butthead did managed to change the future. That would rock.
We are pulling out our flannel and hoping for some righteous music vids (as opposed to lame reality television) because it’s official: Beavis and Butthead are back to do America.
Instead of watching teen girls use mocha Frappucinos as vicious weapons when fighting over overwrought effeminate boys, we will get the absurd, irritable, and pimply rocker dudes, Beavis and Butthead. And Mike Judge says he’s not changing Beavis or Butthead for the times:
“Even better news for fans is that, should this come to pass, Judge plans on retaining the show’s original ghetto-tech aesthetic, right down to the faded color palatte. The source also reveals that the Extract director intends on keeping B and B’s format identical to its original sketch-videos-sketch incarnation, but with more contemporary music clips for the cartoon slacker-duo to skewer…”
MTV is going to sort of play music? No way. That is revolutionary.
If you are too young to remember Beavis and Butthead, watch these videos below. Soon everyone will know that Beavis and Butthead are greater than Miley Cyrus. No doubt.
