BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD returning the to big screen' Uh... huh-huh... that'd be cool!

Hey, squirts! Quint here with a link over to THE ONION where the A.V. club has a great interview with director/animator/Austinite Mike Judge covering damn near everything he has on his plate now, including a bit about the bad blood between MTV and Judge being cleared up a bit which may result in a possible new BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD movie.

I've met Mike on many occasions and he's a very good guy. I even infiltrated the set of his new flick recently and when he caught me what did he do? Call security? Nope. He put me in a scene with Luke Wilson... Of course, that could have been an insult since everyone except Luke Wilson is really stupid and stupid looking... Wait a minute... Fuck that guy!!!

Hehhehe. After BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD, KING OF THE HILL and OFFICE SPACE, Mike Judge has proven he's a force to be reckoned with in the world of comedy. From what I've seen on his UNTITLED (previously 3001) film, it'll be a nice compliment to his filmography.

    Beavis and Butthead were very cool...

    by ZeroCorpse

    The DVD set doesn't do them justice, though because they don't have the videos, and that was some of the best humor in the show!

    Too bad The Onion is all about creating FAKE news. I doubt what ever Mike said was true, hell I bet the whole story is fake.

    I'm enjoying the re-run episodes on MTV late at night. I think it would be great if they made another movie about these two Boneheads. Bring on the nachos!

    Kind of acts like him too. Just about the same I.Q. level. I do believe Mike Judge was giving us a warning. . .

    Face it: B&B ragging on the music videos were always the funniest segments of the show. Oh, and Judge's "Untitled" project is a shameless rip-off of Futurama.

    by neckbone

    and they will go 'plop'. name that B&B video reference! those of you looking for the "real" B&B eps (with videos), need to head over to kazaa. there is a veritable asspot, which is slightly more than a buttload, of 'em. do a search for 'beavis' and look for the 20~50 meg files. my brother in albuquerque actually lives in the shadow of judge's old high school - highland HS! i wonder if there's a prinicpal there resembling mcvicar..

  • That is the only reason I ordered that channel. But I would love to see a new movie for this day and age...all the crap that's happened since 1996 through the eyes of Beavis and Butthead would be hilarious.

    They should just start turning up in Hank Hill's front yrad, asking to mow the lawn. I'm thinking of changing my name to DarthDeadFranchise.

    by IFartOnYourGrave

    You're right... they did do a sequel that's sitting on a shelf somewhere as we speak. Don't know if it will ever see the light of day. I'm under the impression that Mike was mad with MTV and that's why it never came out.

    by neckbone

    famous x wins something ....uhhhh....huh-huh...something that's really cool... and doesn't suck. yeah, and it rules....IT RULES!!! someone mentioned the eventual censoring by mtv due to the darwinian fire problems around the country. i think the censoring actually improved the show. the video with the guy on fire running down the street in slo-mo and all beavis can get out is "ooooohhhhhh...oooohhhhhh". or the (almost) fire bits where beavis blurts out "liar!" or "higher!" good stuff maynard.

    Beavis has a beer, and cheats on Butthead

    by mbaker

    In an age where "Shreck 2" breaks all box office records, Maybe Beavis, and Butthead can revjuvinate the dying medium of 2D animation. Besides, Paramount, and Nick already have the "Spongebob" movie ready for November. So maybe they still belive in 2D while the rest of Hollywood has jumped on the 3D bandwagon. The question is, will people embrace still the demented duo, or will the complain about the fact that they're not animated in 3D?

    by tequilaworm

    Funniest fucking thing I've seen in animation. I was just watching Beavis and Butthead a few nights ago while eating Nachos ( go figure ) and drinking beer and that one scene came up. I started laughing so hard that fucking beer and chunks of Nachos came out of my nose. I SAY GO FOR IT MIKE...CHEERS Amigos!

  • June 24, 2004, 5:32 p.m. CST

    South Park is occasionally still funny...

    by beamish13

    but it's always been a bit too preachy (even though I do agree with Trey and Matt's politics). Once a show is around for more than a few years, the quality inevitably goes down...

  • June 24, 2004, 6:27 p.m. CST


    by SuperTooth

    if they made beavis and butthead in 3d i would shit on the theater and everything else involved. that would be the worst move ever. id probably beat up my dog. also south park is fucking awesome and it keeps getting better as they wear down the censors more and more. and the maxx and aeon def need dvd releases, i guess the head too cuz i would def watch it again, but i wasnt a huge fan. oh yea and mtv sucks. they act like they are so cool, but they are one massive vagina. all they do is pussy out on all their shit. if south park had been on mtv it wouldve been canceled along time ago.

    I'll be the Judge of that.

    by Darkman

    Read the interview yesterday. It was all right, though I can't believe we're back to THAT again; "this is a rip-off of 'Futurama!". That's like saying that "NYPD Blue" is a rip-off of "Barney Miller". After all, they are both ensemble shows about cops.

  • ...and for the record since the 3rd season The Sopranos has sucked ass. Beavis and Butthead were great though. We never got to see them rip on the Boy Bands and Britney sluts. It would do great if they made new ones.

    South Park

    by Aetius450

    South Park's episode about immigration (the people from the future) was about the most fair treatment of the subject I've ever seen. Especially good was the part where the self-righteous, holier-than-thou, platitude-spouting father changed his attitude when he lost HIS job whereas before he was happy to exploit the cheap labor, and the part of the 'aging liberal hippie douche' who effectively showed just how absurd the reflexive leftwing attacks on anyone who dares raise concerns about immigration are. Anyway, another Beavis and Butthead movie might be good, though I think its inherently better as a half hour show. Over an hour is a bit much to take at one time.

    Great news

    by BlackBeltJones

    This is really great news...if it actually happens. I got one of the B&B sets they sell on TV for Christmas as was a bit disappointed they did not have the videos in them. Probably a licensing issue. I would have to say that anytime the Grim Reaper video would come up for ridicule was pretty awesome. But nothing was as good as Cornholio! I NEED TP FOR MY BUNGHOLIO!!!!! The Belt Has Spoken!

    first B&B shows

    by blue7

    are the funniest. The ones that ran once on MTV, then were edited to bits and sanitized. B&B go to the drive in and Butthead takes the F from Field of Dreams on the marquee and holds it in front of the T from Tucker? Huffing stove gas? Starting fires? You know that shit was hilarious. A few showings of that, though, and the show became rife with on-screen disclaimers during the cartoons and those stupid commentary-on-the-videos shitz. Fuck MTV sideways with a rusty crowbar.
