On Thursday night, MTV’s most famous animated duo made their triumphant return, with the comeback of Mike Judge’s hit ’90s series, Beavis and Butt-Head.
From hilarious commentary about other MTV shows to plenty of misadventures and snarky asides from the pervy pair, there’s a lot to love about this reboot – as especially evidenced by the three funniest moments from the premiere.
Welcome back, Beavis and Butt-Head!
1. Like millions of other viewers nationwide, Beavis and Butt-Head were riveted by the series 16 & Pregnant. “Everybody’s mouth is always open!” observed Butt-Head, watching one of last season’s episodes. “This chick is a horrible actor,” he continued. “Wait a minute, I think this is real!” “So she’s not a bad actor, just a bad person!” replied Beavis. But the highlight of this segment was when Butt-Head suggested a way to improve the program. “This would be a better show if they, like, showed them actually getting pregnant,” he said. “It’d be called, ‘I’m 16 and tonight I’m gonna get pregnant.’ ”
2. Not surprisingly, the segment of Jersey Shore that Beavis and Butt-Head caught involved Snooki talking about sex – and, this time, she and JWOWW tried to document with whom everybody in the house had hooked up. “If they did this chart long enough, they could find out where herpes began!” marveled Butt-Head.
3. As the two watched the Benny Benassi’s music video for “Satisfaction,” Beavis and Butt-Head returned to their roots – giggling about scantily clad girls dancing provocatively. “This is what happens when hot girls don’t go to college,” said Butt-Head as a women in bikini tops pretended to be construction workers. “Whatever they’re building would probably collapse but nobody would care,” he continued. “They’d just keep hiring him.” Giggled Beavis: “Build a new one – real slow.” Heh heh.
BONUS GROSS-OUT SCENE: After Beavis and Butt-Head asked a homeless man to bite them (to turn them into werewolves), the two contract a bevy of diseases, including Hepatitis A, B and C. As they lie in comas in the hospital, a nurse remarks to the doctor, “I know they’re medical marvels and all that, but I really don’t want to change their catheter again. I swear, they start giggling.” And then of course, when she does, the famous “heh heh heh” rings out. Classic.
