Beavis and Butt-Head is an animated comedy series by Mike Judge that aired in 1993 on MTV. It was briefly revived in 2011 and would be revived again sometime around third-quarter of 2021, this time on Comedy Central. The show is centered around a pair of vulgar, dim-witted teenagers who cause mischief and try (and fail) to impress women.

Why It Rocks

  1. Memorable side characters, such as Daria (who got her own series due to her popularity) and Tom Anderson (basically an prototype of Hank Hill from King of the Hill).
  2. The modern-day Laurel and Hardy.
  3. Surprisingly good social commentary.
  4. The duo's stupidity and crude jokes somehow never get old and can even be clever at times.
  5. The amusing Mystery Science Theater 3000-style riffs on music videos, especially on videos they don't like.
  6. It had a feature-length movie called Beavis and Butt-Head Do America which featured many funny and memorable scenes.
  7. The intro music is very cool.
  8. It was Mike Judge's first ever show and is pretty good for a first show.
  9. The show's animation got better when the show went on.
  10. "I am The Great Cornholio, and I need TP for my bunghole!"

Bad Qualities

  1. Crudely animated at times, especially in the early episodes.
  2. Can be pretty mean-spirited at times, such as the ending of "Young, Gifted and Crude", where Coach Buzzcut encourages Beavis and Butthead's class to beat up a mentally handicapped student.
  3. The show was briefly yanked off the air after a five-year-old boy was allegedly inspired by the show to burn down his trailer home, killing his two-year-old sister.
  4. It's impossible for a truly complete collection to come out due to a combination of copyright laws (especially in regards to the music videos), controversy, and the fact that Mike Judge simply hates certain episodes.
  5. Overuse of toilet and gross-out humor.
  6. Beavis and Butthead have little to no personality outside being stereotypical slacker teenagers.
