Butthead: Check it out. It's that Kaopectate--

Beavis: Oh yeah, that stuff is terrible. It like is expensive, and tastes terrible, and it doesn't work. It says it's for diarrhea, and I drank a whole bottle, but I never got diarrhea--

Butthead: Beavis--

Beavis: Then a week later, this brick pooped out of my butt. It was all hard and black. I can show it to you if you want.

Butthead: You still have it?

Beavis: Sure. I keep it in my sock drawer.

Butthead: Beavis, you're just joking right?

Beavis: Ummmm yeah I mean ummmm no.

Butthead: Beavis, I'm just gonna pretend I didn't hear any of this.

Great news to hear that these two will return to MTV, and that music videos will return to MTV. Who would have thunk?

I recorded every single episode of Beavis and Butt-Head on VHS and then re-recorded to a second VCR, editing out all the commercials. I also made a numbered list of the episodes with their titles. There were about 150- 175 of them, if I recall correctly. Those tapes are stored away somewhere. I'd liked to have converted them to DVD, but with a wife, three kids, and everything else going on, it was just too much time to invest. Quite a stark contrast from the mid-90s, when I had nothing better to do. :laugh:

Nachos rule! They rule!!

I got 2/1 odds that Butthead loves Lady Gaga.

I love Beavis and Butthead but this is a terrible ideal. What channel are they going to watch music video's on? VH-1 classic during 80's hour? The new episodes will fall flat and will not find an audience beyond those hardcore fans(which I am one) and then will be unceremoniously canceled.

The idea is that along with Beavis & Butthead, they're going to bring music videos back to MTV. I welcome the change. I've had enough of reality (:thumbdown) TV.

True. A lot of the videos they watched in the 90's were totally obscure. In the manufactured MTV of the 10's, I wonder if MTV will in someway ($$$) dictate the videos shown.

You have to remember the formula for how Beavis and Butthead worked. These 2 kids are "metal heads". They would pan the pop videos of the time as saying they sucked, but then come across a video for Faith No More, Soundgarden or Ozzy, and let the headbanging begin. Mike Judge knows his formula, I doubt he's going to change it.

I always picture them out of time like all of Judge's other creations. The Simpsons, King of the Hill, etc. have always been sort of frozen in no particular era.

If they are shown as being near 30 still doing the same thing that would be more sad then funny ;)

Haha. :D Maybe a good nightmare sequence or something.

I was thinking more along the lines of maybe like the next grade up in school or something... you know, give yourself license to make it fresh, but still adhere to the original formula.

From what I've read, they're still going to be the same age. But I imagine they'll now have cellphones. ;)

For some reason, I see this in the same light as the CW bringing back Melrose Place and 90210. Restarting popular shows to appeal to a certain demographic, but trying to add the pop culture flair of today to make it more appealing, and it doesn't work.

I always enjoyed Beavis and Butthead more than King of the Hill (interest started to wane after the kids started hitting puberty except Bobby).

Other than Family Guy has there been a "restart" of a show that worked? Are all the original ideals gone? I love Beavis and Butthead but the niche time for the shows success has come and gone and restarting it will only damage its glorious past IMO.

It'd be cool to have them get caught in a time warp and forwarded to our current time. Imagine them trying to figure out an iPod or iPad or a smart car.

New "Futurama" episodes on Comedy Central have, thus far, been every bit as funny as the originals IMO. I think cartoons and animated shows are a notable exception to this general rule -- mostly because you can just re-assemble voice actors and animate the characters the same way as in the past.

Assuming you can get the same creative talent behind the show on board. I can recall some of the reboots Hanna Barbera did with some of their cartoons that were dreadful, what with new writers and new voice talent. And let's not forget the whole "Let's add a cute little cousin, or make them all kids or babies" spin. Although I must say, the idea of Beavis and Butthead running into Don Knotts or Phyllis Diller would be kind of funny.

I have liked the few new Futurama episodes that I have watched so there is hope. I see this more as "New WKRP in Cincinnati" bad though.

Don't judge me, but I'll go ahead and admit that I was a fan of The New Leave It To Beaver.

Also, V seems to be doing pretty well so far.

I've had the opposite reaction so far, they seem way off to me, almost as if they are trying to write for the type of humor that Comedy Central usually goes for in their shows.

Contrast them with Southpark, which started out similarly getting laughs via shock value, but matured with it's creators.

Pretty excited for tonight. Hope they go heavy on the music videos, not so heavy on the other MTV programming commentary like I've read they are going to do.

The music video commentary from the original story has aged tremendously well. I'd recommend anyone going to YouTube and looking some of them up.

Mike Judge was on Stern last week and at least to me implied that it was going to be more about the reality series than music videos. This was due to the decreased number of music videos and the fact that MTV is more about the TV shows than the video's anymore.

All the clips on B & B website were reality TV based. The one where he calls Snookie on the phone is hilarious.

It helps if you know what you are looking for. This is my favorite of all time:

Beavis and Butthead watch Radiohead (Creep) - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLPrw5aKDoQ)

Lot more in the related videos.

I still laugh myself to tears when watching the scene from No Laughing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Laughing_%28Beavis_and_Butt-head%29) when Mr. Buzzcut shouts sex-ed terms at them when they will be expelled if they laugh.
