MTV to revive Beavis and Butt-Head - July 9, 2010, 12:27 PM

I need TP for my bunghold!

heh heh


MTV To Revive Beavis and Butt-Head? - G4tv.com

Fans who fondly remember "Frog Baseball" and still pull their shirts over their heads to break out a rendition of "The Great Cornholio" may have reason to rejoice. It seems that news is circulating that MTV plans to revive one of its most popular franchises in Beavis and Butt-Head. According to Examiner's REVIEWniverse, an anonymous source has revealed that creator Mike Judge has 30 new episodes in the works which will be set for a return on its native MTV. While the deal is not yet set in stone and reports also indicate that the return of the animated icons has yet to be greenlit, Judge's efforts may be an indicator that things will likely move forward.

According to the report, the updated series would apparently hold true to the original in that Judge plans to maintain the scraggly, "ghetto-tech aesthetic" of the original series. Additionally, the format of giving music videos the old "Mystery Science Theater 3000" treatment of voice-over commentary would also remain, except with up-to-date videos, obviously. (Beavis and Butt-Head commentating on Lady Gaga videos? That's got to be worth something.)

Spun-off from the 1991 animation showcase/anthology series Liquid Television, Beavis and Butt-Head would air from 1993-1997. At the height of its popularity, it even spawned the theatrically-released film Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, which topped the box-office in its debut weekend, going on to gross over $63 million in 1996. The animated duo represented for many, the embodiment of society's imminent intellectual downfall, and for others, a guilty pleasure that contained nuggets of clever commentary on culture and Americana. For MTV, the show's success was an important landmark in its complete transition from the network that played music videos into the broader, youth-catered programming full of teen dramas and scripted "reality" shows it would eventually become.

It's been a long time since the 90's iconic bumbling duo have shined in the spotlight and it's difficult to tell if they would show their age if revived in today's setting. How would Beavis and Butthead's rural, mundane, but trouble-filled lives hold up in a much faster culture filled with a dominant Internet, smart phones, and social networks?

Would fans welcome the return of Beavis and Butt-Head? Or would a revival be perceived as milking a franchise well past its age?

The show spawned two spin offs, Daria, and King of the Hill which ran for quite some time.

I can only see this as a one season dropper, with only the 'y' generation flipping through for nostalgia sake. Id catch an episode just revive a few old laughs.

My favorite was Sound Garden's Black Hole Sun Video:

"In these hills Juan Valdez and his trusty goat..."

Brings a smile to my face everytime.
