Quote

Beavis and Butt-Head are back, but not for MTV: The 1990s icons are headed to MTV sibling Comedy Central. Series creator Mike Judge and 3 Arts Entertainment have struck a wide-ranging deal to bring back the characters from Judge’s iconic 1990s series for ViacomCBS’s Comedy Central brand, which has given a two-season order to a “reimagined” Beavis and Butt-Head. The deal, which also includes a component for Judge to develop additional spinoffs and specials, comes as Comedy Central mounts a major expansion to build on the long-running success of South Park by increasing its adult animation output.

I wonder if they will go back to making fun of music videos aka Youtube videos or do like they did with their short lived return and go after TV shows.

In today's maniacally hypersensitive environment "reimagined" B&B will probably have a leash so short that it will have zero entertainment value.   On the flip side, if Judge is allowed to run with things the show will probably last about two weeks before it gets yanked because of said maniacally hypersensitive flakes. 

Either way, sadly, I'm not expecting much.

It's moving to Comedy Central. Adult Swim is anything but hypersensitive. Have you seen an episode of Rick and Morty?

yeah, plenty of animated shows today are a lot worse than b&b ever was.  family guy has a reoccurring pedophile character. south park is 10x less PC.

I believe the problem in 2011 was they had to get the bands permission to lampoon the video where I don't believe that was the case back in the 90s so that was why there were so many clips of BnB lampooning MTV properties like Jersey Shore.

It will be curious how they fill that void as I don't think CC has permissions on the music video front and they don't have nearly the volume of garbage dump programming to make fun of that MTV does.

That’s a pic always made me think their future was as a JiffyLube technician and a middle school janitor.

The Jersey Shore backdrop for B&B circa 2010 was hilarious.

I could see them watching some lame old standup specials

I would love to see their take on this Midnight Special segment with the original Genesis with Peter Gabriel with bat wing eyebrows.  B&B would shoot Big Gulp cola out through their noses..

I read someone say that the “reimagining” probably involves them sitting in front of their tablets watching YouTube videos. If they’re sitting on the couch playing on the Internet, the list of things they can be making fun of is infinite.

This was some the funniest stuff they did on the original so I hope so.

 

Will watch.

Them walking into a meeting of a feminist group named "Womyn" (because they didn't want "man" or "men" in the name).

Butthead:  That's not how you spell "women".  These chicks must be stupid.  Stupid chicks put out.
