FILM FORUM with Beavis and Butthead - The boys reappear after twelve years to shill for Mike Judge's new film, Extract, opening today. Is there a future for Beavis and Butthead? Mike Judge speculates.

Ugh. On one hand, I found them confusing, horrifying, and only occasionally funny. On the other, without their show I might never have bought Bjork's Debut album as an impressionable high school freshman (they once mocked her "Human Behavior" video on the show).

B&B's brand of satire makes South Park look like actual Film Forum material.

Man I hope there's a future for them. Timeless comic brilliance, and I mean that completely seriously. I'm willing to give "Extract" a chance and hope it's better then the mean-spirited, unfunny "idiocracy," which, all attempted history-rewrites aside, remains an awful movie.

Mheheheh. "Mr. Bateman."

I'm not going to get my hopes up about Beavis and Butt-head coming back, but it was good to see 'em.

Also, Judge is right - his voice is different, and Beavis sounds a little too deep. Not a big deal, though.
posted by ignignokt at 9:59 AM on September 4, 2009


I'd be the first to say that a periodic re-appearance by B&B would be awesome, in the right context. They were unbelievably hilarious at a certain time and doing a certain shtick. Don't know if a full-length movie fits them, though. "The Simpsons Movie" was quite an event with a capital E, I suppose, but it doesn't really wear well. Does anyone even remember "South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut" anymore? And really, does everything need to be pitched and worked into a movie?

Beavis And Butthead Do America was one of the funniest things I'd seen in a theater in ages. And it holds up fine after all these years.

Ditto the South Park movie. Holds up great. And it's a fucking MUSICAL!

"Boys! We need more special sauce! Put that mayo out back in the sun!"

For that line alone, I will always love Beavis & Butthead.

There was a purity and an innocence to that show (seriously!) that's at the core of all of Judge's work. Beavis & Butthead were holy fools, the personification of blissful ignorance. But it's that ignorance that allows them to render their hilarious couch-bound critiques of videos to such devastating effect. All the adults in the show are craven, misguided, scheming, or clueless. Only Beavis & Butthead have the will to create, and then they use it to destroy. It's a perfect little hermetically sealed universe that centers around a couch and a screen: the only place the boys are truly comfortable. The only activity in which they are positively engaged is media consumption. Ask them to do anything else and they're (hilariously) hopeless. It's genius.

I don't think I have ever laughed as hard at a TV show as I did the first time I saw "Cornholio". That testosterone and sugar turn Beavis into this dadaist figure of puzzling dignity who walks around randomly demanding toilet paper.... Man, that's funny.

I hope Judge does do more Beavis & Butthead. I'd watch it. Fartknocker.

However, that's not a film forum and I don't really care about this movie, and less so now that I see Judge has to resort to B&B to promote it in such a labored way. Uh-oh. Well, with any luck, it'll become a cult hit like Idiocracy.

Yeah, Beavis's voice has changed. At first I thought he was putting on an "film intellectual" voice, but I don't think so. Perhaps his voice broke.

I especially love how Cornholio was just another regular one-off episode, but everyone who watched it immediately cottoned on to its genius, and it became this whole thing. It's as if Homer had only said "D'oh" once, and it still became the catchphrase it has become.

I loved B&B back in the day, and still admit to being a fan. The black and white documentary made about their lives episode was pure genius. And the video critiques were tremendous. That said, I've watched a few clips recently and they aren't as timeless I had hoped they might be.

Still, I'd welcome them back and give 'em a shot.

At the risk of coming off as a nerdy B&B purist, in addition to Beavis' voice sounding different, he was also speaking far more intelligently and coherently than he did on the show/movie. Still, they had me at "Master Bateman"

One of my favorite B&B moments was in an episode where they visit a convenience store and notice a hot dog cooker with heated cylinders rotating a wiener and keeping it warm.* B&B laugh uncontrollably for a while, and then stand quietly staring at the wiener.** One of them says, "It's still there." And they start laughing uncontrollably again.

Beavis & Butthead is kind of unique. It decried the dumbing down of American culture, and mocked MTV's role in that. But most young people didn't get it, and ended up looking to B&B as edgy role models. So it ended up contributing to the dumbing down of American culture. There's no way this escaped Mike Judge's notice. His bitterness over this comes through crystal clear in Idiocracy.

And having viewed the clip, I'd say that Beavis' voice isn't as wrong as his long stretch of semi-coherent speech. A single sentence was more than he used to be able to handle.

Yeah, but he featured in the movie because he was already huge. There were buckshee Cornholio posters in the dorms when I was there, long before the movie.

Also: nice to see Beavis is still wearing a blue t-shirt. Wonder if it's the same one.
posted by fightorflight at 10:45 AM on September 4, 2009


B&B were the grown up Ren and Stimpy that drove the adults nuts.

Beavis's fascination with fire led to media hysterics and thier scathing critiques of music videos (I seem to recall) caused those videos to not be included in the DVD's later produced.

Cornholio was fucking genius, and I don't think I've ever laughed so hard as when that first episode aired.

One of my favorites was the episode where they got on the wrong school bus and had to walk home, instead ending up at the wrong neighborhood. They spot a convenience store, ask the clerk where "Mr Anderson" is (they reasoned, since he was their next-door neighbor, find Mr Anderson and find your way home). The clerk directs them to THAT neighborhood's MR Anderson. They knock on the door, and the gentleman answers. They ask for Mr Anderson, and he tells them that he is indeed Mr Anderson. They get confused for a second and Beavis then asks, "If you're Mr Anderson, then who are we?"

That's funny as hell.

I think it's much more likely that they weren't included due to licensing issues. Almost all of MTV's shows in the 90s included contemporary songs, usually as background music but in some cases (like B&B or Sifl & Olly) as actual music videos. Since those shows were produced before DVDs and when very few people bought TV shows on VHS, they didn't ensure that those songs would be licensed for video releases.

So now when MTV tries to put together a DVD release of an old show, the record companies want them to pay additional licensing fees for the release, and MTV usually doesn't think that it's worth paying the fees for all the original music. This usually results in the shows either not being released at all, or being released with the licensed music removed (and possibly replaced by cheaper sound-alikes).

Indeed. I'd forgotten how great some of those video critiques were:

It wasn't an MTV series, but this is exactly what delayed the DVD release of thirtysomething until just this year. They didn't want to take the Northern Exposure route and try putting in different music, because, well, that didn't really go over that well.

Or the time they were watching a video with skateboarders in it, and Beavis went on a tear telling a made-up story about how one time he was skating and got injured, and Butt-head interjected with "Dammit, Beavis. You've never skated in your life." Beavis goes silent for second and replies "Oh, yeah! I forgot."

One of my all-time favorite Beavis and Butthead moments involved them having the brilliant idea of counterfeiting money by photocopying it (on a black and white copier, of course). They go to the convenience store and Butthead tries to pay with one of the copied bills, and the clerk tells them to get the hell out...

...and Butthead, without missing a beat, slides another photocopied bill across the counter, saying "Uhhh...maybe this will change your mind."

Just setting the record straight.

The only tragedy about B&B is that you can't get the full episodes with all of the videos that they mock. They short episodes are OK, but the obscure music videos is what made it. White Zombie (and probably Ween) owe most of their commercial success to getting on B&B.

I mean success with the MTV crowd, not the folks who are into them now, though that was my first exposure to both, same with many of my friends.

Their best video critique was during an obscure rap video for a song I believe is called "Queston?". Beavis mentions how the rapper reminds him of "that Mickey Rooney dude" (his error, not mine) and then breaks into a dead-on Andy Rooney impression:

"Why do they call it TAKING a dump? After all, you're not really taking anything, are you? Why don't they call it LEAVING a dump?"

When I was in college, I went through a Japanese exchange program. Like most people my age, video games/anime/pop culture is was drew me to Japan. But once I actually got there, I was like a fish out of water (and you know what they do to fish in Japan)! I was staying with a host family, and still learning the language, so I had a hard time communicating at first. That, the impending workload I was anticipating, and general homesickness made me start to seriously second guess my decision. At the time of my arrival, only my host mother was at the home. The father was out, and the son was expected back back soon. Tension was in the air as I tried to make myself interesting to the host mother, and stave off her own rising thoughts of regret for taking me in.

Soon, the son came home; we exchanged introductions. He was a little younger than me, quite thin, and very friendly. He was wearing a beat-up Beavis & Butthead T-shirt. He spoke English well, and I asked if he liked the show. Imitating Beavis he said, "Huh huh, I am Cornholio!" I felt instantly at home. That night he told his mom that I was "kakoii." I later found out that means "cool."

If a mutual love of Beavis & Butthead can make me cool to a complete stranger, I'd say the show was an overwhelming success.

Going through the old B&B videos forced me to confront a question that never occurred to me before: What must it have been like, seriously, to have been the dude in Elastica (video may not be SFW)? He just seems to be doing his own thing in the midst of a roomful of naked guys -- that's a true professional right there. (This video also forced me to recall exactly how impossibly sexy the lead singer from Elastica was. Sigh! She's dreeeeeeeammmmmmy.)
