Series cast summary:
 Beavis / ... (208 episodes, 1993-2011)


Beavis and Butt-head's lives revolve around three simple things. (1) Barely attending school, which sucks. They do nothing, they learn squat, they know diddly, they hate the teachers - and, amazingly, they manage to avoid being thrown out. (2) Trying to score with chicks - something we know they'll never achieve. (3) Watching TV. Lots of TV. If something in the real world doesn't relate to what they know from TV, it sucks. They especially enjoy "reviewing" music videos - or just commenting inanely on them. If a video contains heavy rock, scantily-clad babes or anti-authority figures, it's cool - otherwise, it sucks.

Did You Know?


One irate caller thought the show was called Porky's Butthole. His voice inspired the voice of Boomhauer in King of The Hill. See more »


When watching a Van Halen video with Sammy Hagar singing, Beavis and Butt-Head say something like "how could they fire Van Halen from Van Halen!?" in reference to David Lee Roth's parting ways with the band. However, David Lee Roth is NOT a member of the Van Halen family (though this may have been deliberate to show their stupidity.) See more »


Beavis: Hey Beavis, you know how sometimes we get a ride home from school, and there's all those dudes crammed together in the backseat?
Butt-head: Yeah, why?
Beavis: Um, heh heh, it is normal to get wood?
Butt-head: Beavis, you boner-popping pervert... it's not even normal to ASK!

The title screen for each segment is often animated in a comical way that reflects the content of what is to come. For instance, "Tired" features the title rolling on to the screen like a spinning tire. See more »

Beavis and Butt-Head will be remembered for a long time. The gross, sick, and always hilarious show was the best show ever on MTV and probably nothing like it will ever come close. Poeple will always remember it's sick skits (B&B trying to grow beards, B&B playing frog baseball, B&B trying to score) it's dialouge at the couch during music videos, and many other things. This show led other shows like South Park into the promised land (ironically, South Park came out at around the same time when B&B were cancelled). This show will always remain as one of the defining shows of the generation X. So, uhuhuhu-hehehe. A++
