He he he he. Huhhhh huh huh. He he.
We could all well use a laugh these days, even an annoying laugh triggered by someone taking the word “but” out of context. That’s why we need Beavis and Butt-Head, the venerable animated slackers of television. Last year, the friends’ triumphant return was first announced, and this week, series creator Mike Judge teased that their reunion was approaching. He tweeted drawings of old Beavis and Butt-Head, saying they “will return this year with a brand new movie and more on Paramount +.”
The pictures of middle-aged Beavis and Butt-Head are really shocking if you grew up in the 1990s and were about the same age as these characters when they debuted, first on MTV’s Floating television and watched their own TV series.
This will be Beavis and Butt-Heads second film; their first, Beavis and Butt-Head make America, premiered in theaters in 1996 at the height of their popularity. Even as Judge’s career took off, both in animation and live-action, film and television, he has often talked about doing more Beavis and Butt-Head. The series was revived for the first time in 2011, with 22 new episodes produced. In 2020, it was a new series on Comedy Central, but at some point, that plan was transformed into the new movie (“and more” as Judge put it) on the Paramount + streaming platform. This is how this new film was first announced in February 2021.
If we revive MTV animated series from the 90s, we can get some more episodes of Maxx while we’re running?
