Beavis and Butt-head Re-Do America

Beavis and Butt-head Re-Do America

Growing up in the Great White North, my folks forbade us youngins from watching Beavis and Butt-head, The Simpsons, and Pee-wee Herman. References in the school yard fell on tragically deaf ears. Days were spent staring at the clouds in isolation. So desperate for television, we watched way too much Y&R.

The brother and I would go on to catch up with Homer and company, not really care much for Paul Reubens’ shtick, and totally resent all the days we could have spent on the couch enjoying the brilliant observations of two silly saps sitting on a couch. Good thing they’re coming back!

After the unmitigated failure of Jersey Shore, MTV has decided to reach deep into its bag of tricks and pull out a pair of ringers this summer. Thus far, Mike Judge has kept mum about the particulars, but we can expect to relive our youth, live our youth for the first time, and certainly laugh a lot. Plus, if the sequel is anything like the original, it all bodes well for the music video. Some gems from the past:
