Beavis and Butthead are back?

Cos

One of the first things that comes to mind when I think of the 90’s, mainly the early to mid 90’s, is (or are) Beavis & Butthead. I don’t remember actually waiting to watch new episodes or even being a huge huge fan. I think I watched it simply because people were talking about it at school. Beavis & Butthead started in 1993 and ran through 1997 (pretty much from when I was in 6th grade through the first two years of high school–when Beavis and Butthead made the most sense in my mind) and from this link that I saw on facebook that led me to a website I have never heard of, it says that Mike Judge (creator of Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill and director of Office Space) might be working on 30 new episodes…

REVIEWING THE NEWS: REVIEWniverse has exclusive info about the possible return of Beavis and Butt-Head

By Kenny Herzog

Woah, Butt-Head is weirdly buff.

REVIEWniverse has exclusively learned from an anonymous source that Mike Judge is currently outlining 30 new episodes of his iconic animated comedy Beavis and Butt-Head for its native network.

The source conceded that plans for actual broadcast are not yet cemented, or even a given, but confirmed that the King of the Hill/Office Space/Idiocracy maestro is definitely in the midst of writing new B and B material with the hopes of a full-throttle return.

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.

And of course, this being the viral age, Judge could always just unveil the finished installments on his own website or through a high-profile online partner should MTV be crazy enough to hesitate making room in its primetime schedule.

In case you forgot how actually, truly funny Beavis and Butt-Head was amidst all that ancient, controversial history:

IN OTHER WORDS: A perfectly timed resurrection for a show that, like few others of its generation, has not only remained ageless, but proven increasingly spot-on in its satire.

HUH-HUH, HUH-HUH RATING: Yes!/10

GOOD THING THE GOODE FAMILY DIDN’T PAN OUT RATING: Mike Judge Is The Great Cornholio!/10
