And Judge should totally age them, in fact I think he's made vague allusions to if he ever revisited Beavis and Butthead, they wouldn't be high-schoolers anymore.
July 8, 2010, 12:13 a.m. CST
I need tp for my bunghole!
July 8, 2010, 12:18 a.m. CST
never found them funny
July 8, 2010, 12:20 a.m. CST
I swear i'm a goddamned psychic. I told my wife about 6 months ago it was time for a Beavis and Butthead revival. Esp since Judge's movie career is, well you saw EXTRACT! And the genius of King of the Hill being over, and Goode Family not taking off...it's a good career move. Plus, there is just SO fucking much to make fun of now! Bieber! Gaga! Hanson! (Still) I hope to shit this happens! Viva la Butthead!!!
July 8, 2010, 12:22 a.m. CST
Are you serious? It's inconceivable to me that someone could watch the show and not find humor. Well, you could always watch paint dry. I hear that's fun. :P
July 8, 2010, 12:23 a.m. CST
Probably not much choice if MTV actually owns full IP rights. Still, MTV is irrelevant nowadays. <p> <p> That's not to say that there isn't great music now. There is. Lots of it, if you knew where to look. However, MTV is a relic of a bygone era. <p> <p> When B&B started in 1993, MTV was still largely about the music videos because... well.... music videos still mattered. In a world that's moved on to using the internet and social networking to promote artists, music videos aren't the "it" thing anymore.<p> <p> B&B's stoner schtick would definitely still work today, especially if they push the boundaries a bit more. If they softball it with easy jokes and played out cliches, the revival won't work. B&B were cool back in the 90s because they were fucked up enough for teens to love `em and parents to hate `em. <p> <p> Regardless, I think that it's on a network that's no longer about music and no longer about quality. I also have concerns about Judge's own personal ability to make it work. Last time we saw them on TV, a couple of years back, the writing was stale & tired while Judge's Butthead voice seemed... different - and not for the better. Like puberty suddenly hit.<p> <p> Anyway, if true, it's a mixed blessing. More B&B = Good. MTV = Bad.
July 8, 2010, 12:24 a.m. CST
That would be cool...like Clerks 2, ten/fifteen years later kind of thing. See them as wastoid thirtysomethings with no life still making fun of crap on tv and raising hell. ;)
July 8, 2010, 12:26 a.m. CST

I was actually flipping through netflix today and ended up watching a little Beavis & Butthead for the first time in years. The show really takes me back to High School days and the 90's. Even then people either loved or hated it.

Let's say that MTV mattered for a second. I've got a huge anti-boner for bringing this property back. I mean, Ren & Stimpy enjoyed a brief revival and that was a monumental disaster. If done right, a B&B revival could be a good thing. If done for the quick cash grab, this could be a nightmare. You really have to wonder what other reason Mike Judge would have for bringing them back, especially considering how very 90s B&B were. <p> <p> Judge's been sort of hit & miss for me too in his post-B&B career. King of the Hill started off pretty solidly and ended up in Simpsons territory, where the characters stopped evolving. Then, Extract & Idiocracy were both good, but uneven, while The Goode Family feels forced & sloppy. Judge is legendary for a lot, but He's not out of gas yet, but - at 47 - he's lost some of his bite.
July 8, 2010, 12:51 a.m. CST
He's the goddamn man and this show is awesome. Best rumor of the day.

I love how Family Guy,Futurama, and now possibly Beavis and Butthead are back on!
July 8, 2010, 2:57 a.m. CST
Since I hate nearly everything on MTV, sounds even better. I dig Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, probably because I skate. And that Hard Times of RJ Berger show is actually decent, but I just watch it OnDemand now because I hate MTV. Bring back B&B and put it before or after Hard Times and they might get an hour of my time each week.
July 8, 2010, 3:08 a.m. CST
was sent to vegas, kinda surprising he hasnt mentioned agt once this season<P> while still not as good as its british counterpart (no chemistry between the judges, sharon osborne is a stuffy bitch)it is much better now that the drunk was kicked out and mandel took his place...and the acts and nutters are better this season<p>as for beavis and butthead...as mtv doesnt play videos anymore, what will they make fun of?

Sometimes people need to go back a bit in order to move forward. Hope this is the case with Judge. I just didn't find a lot to love in IDIOCRACY or EXTRACT. OFFICE SPACE was 11 years ago, and that's the last time Judge really blew my skirt up (except for the occasional outstanding KotH ep.) I do hope he's aged them into at least their 20s, working some slackerly jobs befitting their continuing lack of ambition. And thanks to the reality glut on TV, they'll have endless fodder for their mocking pleasure. Hope Judge can recapture his edge with this.
July 8, 2010, 8:08 a.m. CST
This can't be happening. MTV is only interested in shitty low IQ reality TV. If it's not about some skanky group of bitches or some in the closet urban white boy thug wannabe then it won't get any ratings on their network. The fan-base MTV had when they aired shows like B&B all tuned out a long ass time ago.

I'm only a casual B&B fan but MTV animation in the 90's was fucking awesome. The Maxx, Aeon Flux, the Head, Christ they were Adult Swim before there was an Adult Swim. I would love to see them start doing some avant garde stuff like that again.

I do sorta love Mike Judge, find Beavis & Butthead to be kind of endearing and a bit if a guilty pleasure, and love the character of Daria (although she'd be graduated from college with a career by now, are B&B still in high school?), so I'd probably watch it. <p><p>-Cheers

July 8, 2010, 10:32 a.m. CST
What te hell will they riff on now? it sure as hell won't be music videos. Beavis and Butt-head are sitting on the couch. Beavis freaks out and starts slapping the remote. BEAVIS: The tv's broken Butt-head! Where the hell are the videos? I mean, it's music television... whe's the goddamn music?" Then Beavis screams and runs out of the house. BUTT-HEAD: Ah heh heh heh. Snookie got puched. She's a slut.

Also, please find a way to incorporate the Ebenezer Goode video to the show again.

was when I first saw it one of the funniest things I had ever seen. at that point. Judge blows hot and cold. B&B in the 21st century, not so sure and would kids/teens today get the humour. there was a lot of stuff going on in Beavis and butt which went unchecked by the snobs who critiqued it as stupid and brainless. it was one of the sharpest shows around.

I recently got a little nostalgic for B&B and watched an old VHS someone made for me back in the day since I had no MTV when the show first started. I've read that Judge is still proud of BB and has never closed the door on bringing them back. Either still as teens or adults, Butthead would have some crappy sales job and Beavis would be a landscaper. And if they did watch MTV I'm sure they would fight over Snooki, but they would probably have to end up watch something like VH1 Classics since they do still play videos some of the time. I was also at Target this week and saw a Butthead as uncle sam t-shirt. So it seems that the marketing is gearing back up which seems like a positive sign that the show really will come back. And I showed an episode to my 12 year old nephew, he thought it sucked.
July 8, 2010, 12:25 p.m. CST
From wiki, which is sourced from somewhere else. "During an interview for Collider on August 25, 2009, Judge told them, "I like to keep the door open on Beavis and Butt-Head, because it's my favorite thing that I've ever done. It's the thing I'm most proud of." However, he also added, "Another movie... the problem is it takes a year and half, two years, two and a half years - maybe - to do that right. And that's a pretty strong level of commitment. I'm going to look at that again. That comes up every three years." One of his ideas is bringing back the characters as old men, instead of teenagers. "I kind of think of them as being either 15 or in their 60s," he said. "I wouldn't mind doing something with them as these two dirty old men sitting on the couch." Judge added that he wouldn't completely ignore the time that has passed in between. "At one point I thought Butt-Head might do okay on some really low-level sales job. Beavis might be landscaping."" I think a 60 year old man Beavis and Butt-head would be a funny one-shot capper to the series, but I think revisiting them now in their late 20s/early 30s would be great and resonate with the audience that originally watched it. Bringing them back as high school students would be cool and nostalgic, bringing them back as adults would be genius.
July 8, 2010, 12:51 p.m. CST
Hope it's just as fun as the old stuff! And I'm really REALLY glad to see MTV move away from reality shows. If MTV is moving away, then that must mean most other stations are as well, or will be soon.
July 8, 2010, 1:11 p.m. CST
MTV could move their programming away from reality AND scripted television, and back towards MUSIC.
July 8, 2010, 1:19 p.m. CST
I remember one that they did where it was this all girl punk band and the song was called "I Wish You Were A Beer". Awesome.

it's more relevant to mtv and all the stupid fucks who watch that channel now more than it was in the 90's
July 8, 2010, 3:06 p.m. CST
That's what I'm hoping too, man. But the reality of it is (no pun...) we're the minority. Or at least MTV thinks we are. If they got back to ... hmm, I dunno MUSIC on MTV I'd be estatic. I can't stand watching videos on YouTube and the like. MTV2 was awesome and they ruined that too. But at the very least, I think we can hope for a genuine movement away from reality shows. Just like boybands and pop princesses before it, I'm hoping this reality craze is coming to the end of its days. And I agree with others here: The video mocking was the best part of B&B. Don't know how they'll handle that these days.
July 8, 2010, 3:23 p.m. CST
What does that even stand for these days? I mean, I remember being envious of those with cable, but to whomever said Beavis & Butthead would be cracking on the Net is right... But I am would be frightened at the prospect of them Twittering! Egads!
July 8, 2010, 3:33 p.m. CST
You know, I always seem to catch it after it's already played out, but each time I catch one of his movies, I'm like, why haven't I seen this before? <p> I've watched occasionally VH1's classic 120min. and it's sort of nostalgic, but then you notice there's no interviews with the band, etc. and it just seems even more stale and pathetic retreading. But I wonder, and maybe someone can tell me, if there are any genre specific music shows anymore? <p> That Metal Show is kind of like that, a throwback- sans music vids, but it's almost as dumb as Beavis & Butthead(I could totally see them crackin' on it), and pathetic as well.

July 8, 2010, 6:10 p.m. CST
"Kick me in the Jimmy! Do it again!" "Hello? Ahm lookin fer some Spanish Tile? Anybody there? Hello?" (Butthead, while watching the video for "Sober" by Tool) "Heh heh heh, If I could move my hand that fast, I'd never leave the house." In case you can't tell, I'm of the opinion that Beavis and Butthead might very well be the best thing about the entire decade of the 90s... :)

So it's Bevis and Butthead in their late 20's/early 30s still living at home like losers, fucking with Anderson(who I hope they bring back inspite of "King of The Hill")and trying to make lives for themselves. That would be funny.

Hells yes bring back The Maxx! Except, the comic was finite, too. Kieth would have to write new stories. Or I guess they could film more from the original comic book series, but it seems a bit late for that. <P>Mtv and VH1 show big blocks of videos from the middle of the night to the early morning. I've even seen some interesting stuff recently. If they would stop showing a GagGag video every hour I might watch more.

I loved Beavis and Butthead as much as the next kid that grew up in the 90s, but the show just isn't relevant anymore. I'm sure that I'd watch it and enjoy it, but King of the Hill is the better Judge show and deserves at least another season or two to finish the series in a real way, since Fox decided to fuck over everyone not named Seth McFarlane.

Don't forget, B&B started out as a short on Liquid Television. Personally, I liked Jack Mack and Rad Boy even more. They were 10x crazier than B&B -- they stole beer from a convenience store by walking straight out a plateglass window.

Of course as I was typing that I typed "guilt in audience". Maybe I should have left that; it's definitely on the guilty pleasure list for me.
