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
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).
The modern-day Laurel and Hardy.
Surprisingly good social commentary.
The duo's stupidity and crude jokes somehow never get old and can even be clever at times.
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.
Overuse of toilet and gross-out humor.
Beavis and Butthead have little to no personality outside being stereotypical slacker teenagers.
