    Default "Beavis & Butt-head" to return!

    don't know if anyone caught this in the latest "Rolling Stone":

    Exclusive: New 'Beavis and Butt-Head' Will Tackle 'Jersey Shore' and More

    The animated duo will watch the MTV hit and UFC wrestling in addition to music videos

    By Andy Greene
    February 16, 2011 12:00 PM ET

    About a year ago, MTV president Van Toffler was having trouble sleeping. "I was eating Fruit Loops and Cap'n Crunch out of the box and flipping through the dials when a Lady Gaga video came on," he says. That's when he had the idea: Bring back Beavis and Butt-Head. "I felt like there was a whole crop of new artists — and what the world sorely missed was the point of view that only Beavis and Butt-Head could bring."

    The new show, which debuts later this year, will be very familiar to fans of the Nineties original. "They'll be self-contained segments with the boys in different situations like they used to be," Toffler says. "But this time around, they'll watch Jersey Shore, UFC matches and user-generated videos from YouTube, in addition to music videos." All of the programming will be displayed on the duo's TV, even if it comes from YouTube — "like silly videos of cats playing music."

    The show's creator, Mike Judge, who went on to create King of the Hill and direct the cult classics Office Space and Idiocracy, is returning to helm the new series. "In the years since Mike quit doing Beavis and Butt-Head, he realized that there was a lot to make fun of," says head writer John Altschuler, a veteran of King of the Hill. "We just kept coming up with ideas that Mike thought would have made good Beavis and Butt-Head episodes. Then one day, Mike said, 'Maybe we should just actually make some good Beavis and Butt-Head episodes.'"

    Beavis and Butt-Head would be in their thirties by now, but they will remain the teenagers they were during the original run. "They'll have the same intelligence," Toffler says. "They're the same boneheads sitting on the same couch, commenting on things through a really simple prism." He has no fear that younger viewers won't respond to the show. "Look how popular South Park and Family Guy are," he says. "These boys are beloved characters, and even if you didn't know them the first time around, it doesn't take more than 30 seconds to fall in love with them."

    MTV plans to promote the program across multiple media platforms. "It will be much more viral this time around," Toffler says. "We're going to plant seeds of the characters throughout social-media networks like Face­book and Twitter, in addition to traditional programming on television and, potentially, in theaters. It's formatted very well for the Internet because it's short-form."


    I know a lot of people didn't like the videos, but there were quite a few that I thought were great. Be interesting to see if Judge still has it.

    Somewhere Kip Winger is dreading this.

    I like that they'll be ripping on Jersey Shore and watching YouTube videos. Should be fun to watch again.

    I'll watch it, hell I'll set the DVR. Like Billy said, it comes down to Mike Judge, King of the Hill is good, but this is a different style.

    Was Daria even in it after she spun off to her own show? Wonder if Todd will still have a mullet? Gotta have Mr. Anderson, Mr. Buzzcut, Mr. Van Driesen - all of 'em!

    This is intersting news. Loved Beavis and Butthead back in the day. I remember an episode where they commented on the Can't Stop Lovin You video and Eddie had his hair cut short. Beavis said "how can you fire Van Halen from Van Halen"?

    Anyways, should be funny watching them poke fun at today's music and entertainment.

    I loved this show when it came out.

    But do kids sit around watching music videos now?

    All I see is hip-hop gangsta rap when clicking by the couple of channels still showing music videos.

    Finally some quality TV entertainment. This will be very interesting. Can't wait to see it.

    Would be nice if this guy could also wake up and start thinking about actually playing videos on mTV once again. I've got more Capt'n Crunch if he needs it.

    We talked during the Super Bowl how great it was when they did the Beavis and Butthead Halftime shows. Those were great.

    The REAL question though - I keep hearing these will come out this year. WHEN this year?!
