New Beavis and Butthead episodes

Quote:
'Beavis and Butt-head" -- the show that celebrated the slacker way of life and helped make MTV into a network that did more than just play music videos -- is coming back.
The move to resurrect the hugely popular 1990s animated anti-heroes has been rumored for several days. But yesterday, sources at MTV confirmed that a new batch of "Beavis and Butt-head" episodes are in the works.
The new series would keep Beavis and Butt-head in their perpetual high-school state, but it would be updated so that the pals -- who obsessively watch music videos on a battered TV set -- could lob their snarky comments at more current targets like Lady Gaga.

SCORE!: MTV is going back into the "Beavis and Butt-head" business with the first newepisodes in13 years.
The show's minimalist animated style is also expected to remain intact.
The return of "Beavis and Butt-head" will be a backdoor means for MTV to return to showing music videos -- something the network was founded upon but abandoned in the last decade to make room for popular reality shows like "Laguna Beach," "The Hills" and "Jersey Shore."
"Beavis and Butt-head," which premiered in 1993, began as an animated short called "Frog Baseball," which aired on MTV's "Liquid Television."
The basic plotline revolved around two shorts-wearing, spectacularly immature teenage pals whose banter was delivered against the backbeat of their constant idiotic laughter.
Series creator Mike Judge, who's also creating the new episodes, voiced both characters.
The guys worked at a fast-food joint and were always out to "score" with "chicks" when they weren't sitting on a ratty couch watching music videos.
Beavis, the blond half, usually wore a Metallica T-shirt and would morph into his crazed, gibberish-spewing alter-ego, "Cornholio," when he ingested too much sugar.
Butt-head was the "cooler" of the two. He usually wore an AC/DC T-shirt and often picked on Beavis in much the same way Moe would slap around Curly, Larry and Shemp on "The Three Stooges."
The duo was so successful they were spun off into a 1996 big-screen movie, "Beavis and Butt-head Do America" and a marketing juggernaut of T-shirts and character trinkets.
A recurring character on the show, high-school classmate Daria (whom they called "Diarrhea"), eventually got her own MTV series.
After MTV canceled "Beavis and Butt-head" in 1997, Judge went on to create "King of the Hill" for Fox.
He also wrote the cult-classic movie comedy "Office Space" and last year's big-screen movie "Extract."
MTV officials had no comment yesterday.
Judge is "not commenting at this time," his publicist said.

I wasn't really a fan of this show, but I'd check it out if it comes back.

Did they changed the logos on their shirts because they did not have the licenses to use the bands Metallica and AC/DC? Because they're shirts are different.

Those are old drawings by Judge, the ACDC and Metallica shirts came later. Still, wouldn't be surprised if they just used those older shirts to avoid copyright issues....you know.....because Metallica cares more about lawsuits than music nowadays.

Americans are dumber now than they were during the 90's, so to achieve authentic retard MTV's going to need to go full blast. Stupid just isn't what it used to be.

Kids will love it. Anyone over the age of...well, 12 will probably be annoyed by it.

The 90's are over, no matter how much we don't want them to be.

I think this is good news. It will be hard to recapture the old magic (they probably won't), but it's nice to see stuff like this return.

Have you seen south park lately? The humor is still juvenille but the jokes are pretty smart.

But yeah, the simpsons and family guy haven't been good for years.
