Beavis and Butt-Head Returning to TV

Entertainment and celebrity gossip site Gossip Cop is confirming rumors that Mike Judge and MTV are bringing back the 90s cartoon Beavis and Butt-Head:

Series creator (and main voice) Mike Judge is reportedly putting together 30 new episodes to continue the adventures of his articulate animated heroes.

Specifics of timing and format are still being resolved, but the process is underway.

Strange, I just randomly heard Butthead's line "That sucked more than anything has ever sucked before" today. It made me smile wistfully, recalling those old episodes.

wow. king of the hill is over and the rest of his series failed so...he's back to this. Gross. It's boring and un-witty and a waste of space on the airwaves.

I mean, what with the shows on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon these days, it's not exactly *worse* than any of that drivel, but it's still not worth even giving it another chance to die slowly while people watch the real humor available these days.

Meg, I think you missed the joke.

Beavis and Butt-Head really had two sets of fans: the first group, which laughed at the two idiots' antics, and the second group, which recognized Beavis and Butt-Head as a caricature of the first group.

Mike Judge is a true genius at satire. He proved it with "Beavis and Butt-Head," "Office Space," and "Idiocracy." I welcome their return to the airwaves. Er, cable-waves.

This didn't work out so well for Ren and Stimpy when they tried a comeback. These things get distorted by Internet fans who don't really grasp that their desires aren't always in line with the regular population but have a disproportionately loud voice.

Aaron is spot on.
I've been a fan of the show not because I admire Beavis and Butthead, but because I've had to put up with a people like them: stupid, reckless, juvenile, lazy and just plain mean. It goofs on them perfectly.

Not a fan, but it doesn't bother me that it will be back on. I do think it will not be the same, and probably for the worse. I'm a big fan of Futurama, and I don't feel the new episodes live up to the old ones. When something is good and going strong, then ends, it will not be as good if you try to repeat it.

thank goodness!!

when king of the hill was cancelled for the cleveland show, I honestly truly cried a little. but not much. I had some grilling to do, dangit.

I'm so thrilled to see that mike judge's knack for satirizing north american culture will has not been permanently swept from the public eye

Ugh. Can we move on? The nineties were great and all, but do we have to keep living in them? MAKE SOMETHING NEW!

Mike Judge has incredible talent. I want to see him use it.

@Justin:

Easy. They'll watch YouTube videos. Or Neatorama.

"Huh-huh... Uhhh, who's this Johnny Cat? Doesn't he know his name is, like, a cat litter? Heh heh."

"Yeah! He's got, like turds in him heehee."

This is the best news I've ever heard! Beavis and Butthead is the perfect image of the youth in the nineties. I grew up watching them and still see the DVD collections they made over the years. What makes Mike Judge so unique with his humor is the fact that he doesn't set the characters in bizzare settings and random situations to get kicks but more of the lines of realistic situations.

It's pretty much just laughing at how they handle real-life situations. And at the same time a wake up call for troubled youth at the time.
