"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."

So, it will be metafilter, animated....?

Are today's 13-year olds even going to want to watch this? Because I can't imagine people (like me) who watched B&B back in the 90s are really excited about getting to watch new episodes. Anytime I've seen clips recently, I've been struck by how very shrill it is.

This article is misleading, it quotes the speculation in the NYP story as MTV's confirmation, but the NYP story stated that both MTV and Judge weren't commenting. Unless I'm missing something, this story is still based on REVIEWniverse article from last week the source of which was anonymous.

That said, dear god I want this to happen.

Dude, I'm not saying you don't know what you're talking about, but I don't know what you're talking about.

Personally, I'm kinda excited to see what a decades-older and more experienced Mike Judge can bring to the TV. B&B was always deeper than the surface level, but this is now the man who made Office Space, who kept King of the Hill from cancellation on FOX for thirteen seasons, and who's learned lessons from making Idiocracy (as far as "the biz" is concerned).

And no matter what, it's still gonna be better than the douchecHills.

When I used to live in Austin, I'd often see Mike Judge at the movies. I sat in front of him at the premiere of "Way of the Gun." His genuine laugh is the "heh heh heh" of Beavis. It's weird to hear that right behind you for an entire movie. Especially a movie that's not particularly a comedy.

I remember first seeing B&B and that frog baseball thing, thinking, "damn, this looks like the dumbest thing I've ever seen on TV". Cut to around 1.5 years later, I'm sitting on the couch with my ex-wife, we're watching B&B and both laughing our asses off. This is good news, and as far as commenting on music videos, fuck it, let's hear their take on "reality television", social networking and chatroulette. That would frikking rock.

My favorite Beavis and Butthead moment: they were showing a Janet Jackson video and out of nowhere, Beavis exclaims, "Rat-a-tat-tat dat ass." I started laughing and couldn't catch my breath. My roommate was laughing and rocking back and forth so hard that he flipped our sofa over backwards. It's the one and only time I've ever seen that episode or heard Beavis say that, but still to this day, I can call Jim out of the blue and scream "Rat-a-tat-tat dat ass" into the phone and we just lose it.

OMG me too. I remember when that video came out, and MTV played it approximately every thirteen minutes for a whole summer, and I didn't listen to it for months because the beginning is so cheesy and lame. But then it was on B&B so I actually stuck through to the chorus and I was like "Oh I get it now!" And then I picked up a copy of OK Computer somewhere and the rest is history.

So I sort of owe my Radiohead fandom to Beavis & Butthead.

I can remember obsessively watching it and laughing with my roommate and falling off the couch exactly as ColdChef and dbiedny remember. But that was 15 years ago. B&B is very much of its time and place, and it seems odd that Mike Judge would want to come back to it at this point. The on-target poetry and weirdness that was "King of the Hill" was on a different level than B&B. Going back to B&B seems like a regression, a longing for "simpler" times, something like that. Still, if it does come back, it'll surely be better than 90% of the current animation on TV.

I like the episode where Butthead tries to tell Beavis a "sophisticated" joke. He says something like, "Like my uncle... Richard Head." He starts laughing but Richard = Dick goes completely over Beavis.

My favourite from the video game at the time:

"It's like a sciencestific drawing of my weiner, except smaller."

Also loved it when Butthead tried to read:

"Ahh, words... words... words... "

And his classic pickup line:

"Hey Baby, I noticed you were speaking English, I speak English too, let's get it on."

They should couple these broadcasts with broadcasts of the Trailer Park Boys.

I was just wondering -- is there anything out there that is an antidote to the insipid pop-inspired dreck that permeates youth culture (e.g. Twilight, Gossip Girl, Miley Cyrus) that is actually accessible to youth culture?

I guess I'm trying to say, that's the problem with kids today. They don't have Beavis and Butthead.

In the mid-1990's my then wife and I were in the process of getting a divorce. I was really, really upset about it. One night I was whining and crying on the phone to a friend of mine about it. I went on for quite some time, then stopped. My friend was silent.

Me: Friend? You still there?

Friend: *chuckles* Man, I'm watching Beavis and Butthead, this shit's funnier than hell, you oughta watch it and stop taking yourself so seriously.

I tuned in to see the Cornholio episode and laughed my ass for the first time in weeks. I've always had a warm spot in my heart for B&B since then.

It would be good to have those two around to help me get through whatever other emotional disaster awaits me in the future.

I've been watching B&B on netflix recently and falling in love with it all over again. The music videos are cut, which sucks, but still it cracks me up just as much now as it ever did as a kid. Maybe I've got a maturity problem.

My absolute favorite moments of the show are when one of the supporting characters asks or says something incredulous to the two after they've fucked up, only to be rebutted by them in classic stupid and unfazed B&B fashion. Followed immediately by the laughs. I probably just killed the magic by trying to put it into words, but still.

Beavis doesn't get the credit he deserves for being a very complex, nuanced character he evolved into after about the third season. Butthead has always been a fairly flat character, but Beavis has these wonderul moments of clarity that are just amazing. The tragic nature of his own ignorance means these moments are almost instantly lost to distraction and stupidity. He is a terminal fool at the cusp of awareness, eternally cursed to be at a pupal stage of enlightenment.

Heh... I said pupal.

It just now occurred to me that the question of whether Kids Today can even grasp what Beavis and Butthead are doing is probably irrelevant. It seems most likely that a return would just be pitched at those of us in the original Beavis generation anyway.

I was sitting watching B&B one day; my mom walks past, "What is this? it's not funny at all." She sat down, started watching, and within fifteen minutes was giggling her head off.

The best video reactions were when they just stared slack-jawed at the TV and changed the channel without making a sound.

The line that made me laugh the hardest wasn't even a real joke. Beavis is reading a magazine while Butt-head is watching a video. Beavis says, "Heh. I'll be damned. Whoa, check it out. This is that dude from Love Boat. Look. He looks all old. It's like, he has a dog. And I think that's his son. That's great."

You have to be really smart to write for such stupid characters. Welcome back, boys. Will Daria move back to Highland?

In the late 90s, B&B were on the BBC's I Love the 90s (or something like that) and hosted and entire 90 minute (or so) programme. It was hilarious (the lads were especially taken with Mr. Blobby) but I've never been able to find it on YouTube or similar.

This news just sends me into Muffy Tepperman mode.

This series indirectly made my high school life a living hell. The football team and various other antisocial cretins saw themselves in it and behaved even more like misogynist idiots as a result. Hearing their insipid laughter reminds me of all the times some asshole snapped my bra in the hallway and let out a "huh huh huh" laugh.

I did like some of the more girl-friendly animated series MTV showed, like Daria and (if memory serves) The Maxx (I really identified with Sara(h) during that time, but we lost cable before I could see the ending). It bums me out that of all the series they could have revived, this was the one that got the green light.

One of my favorite Beavis moments- I'd link it but it's from a tripod site(!) and this transcription is apparently 'Copyright 1999 Food God Productions.'(!!!)

Beavis and Butt-Head are watching a Korn video. Butt-Head says that it'd be a lot cooler of a video if you were all dizzy and stuff. Beavis proceeds to show him a trick where you plug your mouth up with your thumb and try to blow. It was supposed to make him get all dizzy, but...

Beavis: [gasp!] [gasp!] I think that the problem with this video is it is highly derivative of many popular bands within the genre. Although when viewed on its own merits, it does have a deeper groove. However what it has in groove it lacks in originality. One can't help but be reminded of such bands as Pearl Jam, White Zombie, Suicidal Tendancies and other bands that bear the mantle of so called "Alternative Rock". One is even reminded of Laurie Anderson when she wore curlers. Hehehmhm! This video speaks less to the heart and more to the sphincter. In closing, I think Korn would do well to learn more from -

(Butt-Head slaps him silly)

Beavis: Ahhhh!! Heh! Oww! Heh! Whoa! What happened?

Butt-Head: You got all dizzy and started talking like a dumbass.

Beavis: Whoa, really? Wow!
---

Also, this is awesome news if true, but as noted by ShawnStruck above, Beavis' voice definitely sounded, um, wrong in that intro to Extract.

My mother recently recounted how she was mildly concerned about my younger brother watching a show called "Beavis and Butthead". She is a woman who feels a bit goofy/uncomfortable saying the word "butthead", and wasn't sure what a show with this title was all about, so she investigated, sat and watched it by herself one night. And ended up, like so many folks, falling off the couch laughing.

I had a next door neighbor who used to call our answering machine while we were at work and just repeat this bassline over and over and over again. I never connected it to Beavis and Butthead. Until today. One less mystery in the universe.

I don't remember living in Louisiana but I did this. A lot.

Beavis! Can you hear me?

I defy anyone to watch this all the way through and not crack a smile. The cummulative effect is what makes the payoff. Maybe its not funny after 10 seconds, but it sure is after 60 seconds.

Commitment to the joke. It's what real comedy is about.

Also, the animation bits are fine and enjoyable, but it was all about the mocking the videos for me.

I can't explain the disappointment when my wife gave me the DVD collection, I fell over myself getting it in the player, and then there were NO GODDAMN VIDEOS.

I hate the RIAA, or whoever is to blame for this.

DFC-- totally agree. That being said, the final sequence in "No Laughing" is one of the funniest damn moments in B&B history.

First one here.
