Beavis and Butt-head Do Christmas is a great made for TV special of Beavis and Butt-head.This video is extremely funny,the animation is very good,and the acting was great.I think that Beavis and Butt-head fans would love this video.I liked this video alot,but the one thing that I didnt like about it was the music videos.Most of the comedy in this tape is crap in your pants funny,the Santa Butt-head,and Terminator Beavis.I strongly recommend this video to any Beavis and Butt-head fan.Beavis and Butt-head Do Christmas is good to watch if you want to experience the Beavis and Butt-head vibe again.To bad Mike Judge decided to stop making this show.10 out of 10.
The Beavis and Butt-Head Christmas special is in it's complete form here on DVD (except for two letters read by "Santa" Butt-head that appeared on TV but not here), and it's such an uproarious joy to revisit it time and time again, whatever the season may be. In it, our dear-old bung-holes Beavis and Butt-Head are thrown into two parodies, a little commentary by the yule-log, and read real letters as Butt-head's a Santa Claus and Beavis is the unfortunate reindeer. Highlights- Beavis' take on what the future will look like; the music videos of RUN-DMC and the Ramones (the only other release on tape that has music videos is Hard Cash); McVicker's family sequence; Charlie, the guardian angel, giving Butt-head a tour of life without him. A must-have for fanatics of the boys from Highland- it's also available now along with the Butt-o-ween special from Time-Life (though I'm not sure if that includes the music videos or not). A+
Beavis & Butt-Head spend their Christmas watching music videos, reading
letters from viewers and making fun of two Christmas classics, "A
Christmas Carol" and "It's a Wonderful Life."
In the first short, "Huh Huh Humbug," Beavis (literally) dreams of becoming a boss at Burger World where he makes Butt-Head and McVicker work late. He goes home and watches a pornographic video, but keeps getting interrupted by ghosts of Butt-Head, Tom Anderson, Van Driessen, and Mr. Buzzcut. Each one of them - except for Butt-Head - suggests that Beavis should clean up his act or else. Funny as hell!
The second short, "It's a Miserable Life," has a guardian angel who is assigned to look over Beavis and Butt-Head separate the two by showing how the world would be a better place without Butt-Head. As the angel shows Butt-Head around town, he insists that it is actually a lot better without him, but Butt-Head disagrees and says that it sucks. This short does not suck, but is not quite as good as the first.
This is not their first Christmas special. Mike Judge made one or two Christmas specials before, but they were much shorter. This one at 45 minutes is primarily geared towards fans of the two slackers or anyone who loathes Christmas or in need of a good laugh. The only thing that blows is the music videos. You might also find some humor in Beavis and Butt-head's responses to letters from viewers. This video belongs to your collection of other Christmas videos along with "Frosty the Snowman," and "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer." Merry Christmas.
My evaluation: B+

Beavis & Butt-head, America's favorite ignorant, music video fans celebrate Christmas in their own hilarious ways and take classic Christmas tales like A Christmas Carol and It's A Wonderful Life and turn them upside down and inside out.
First in HUH HUH HUMBUG, the Burger World manager yells at Beavis for goofing off so Beavis falls asleep and dreams that he's the manager yelling at his employee, Principal McVicker. Beavis then decides to go home so he makes McVicker and Butt-head work late. At home, Beavis pops a pornography into the VCR and settles back on the couch. All of a sudden, the ghost of Butt-head climbs out of the TV. He tells Beavis that in life he was his partner, but now he was "some dead guy with cool chains". Before he leaves, he tells Beavis he will see some ghosts. Pretty soon the porno started, but just then the Ghost of Christmas Past (Tom Anderson) came out of the TV and showed Beavis past Christmases from age 5-13, trying to show him he's wasted his life. Beavis didn't care one bit so the ghost left. Then, the Ghost of Christmas Present (Van Driessen) appears and shows Beavis the family of his employee, McVicker, who were poor and hungry. Beavis doesn't care about them either. The ghost leaves and in comes the Ghost of Christmas Future (Buzz Cut) who shows Beavis the McVicker kids dead and even his own grave stone. Beavis begins contemplating on changing his ways when he awakened back at Burger World. He then told Butt-head that the future was really cool.
Next, LETTERS TO SANTA BUTT-HEAD where Santa Butt-head reads viewer fan mail while his reindeer Beavis listens. The two then watch some music videos and we go to the next part of the special: IT'S A MISERABLE LIFE. It's Christmas Eve and all around town people are praying that God would kill Beavis and Butt-head. The spirits up above decide to send Charlie the angel to do away with the two. At their house, Beavis and Butt-head decide not to watch TV but rather go find some chicks. They go over a bridge that's over a river and Charlie appears. He tries making wind push them over the side, but it in fact pushes himself in. The boys don't help him out. When he climbs out, he decides to show Butt-head how much better the world would be without him. It is. The town looks festive, Burger World had customers, Principal McVicker had hair, and Stewart worked at a soup kitchen with Beavis! Having seen enough, Butt-head asks to have been born again. Beavis appears and the two walk away, thinking nothing of the events of the day; more music videos and LETTERS TO SANTA BUTT-HEAD and that concludes the special.
I really enjoyed Beavis and Butt-head Do Christmas! It was after I saw it that I got into Beavis and Butt-head. Too bad Beavis and Butt- head aren't on TV anymore. They had their moments! Mike Judge had a good thing going with them. Why did he give it all up for King of the Hill? I don't know, I guess he isn't a very smart guy. Anyhoo, this Christmas, if you can find it, make Beavis and Butt-head Do Christmas a movie in your line-up. It belongs with all the other classic holiday favorites like Rudolph, Frosty, Grinch, and Ernest Saves Christmas!

Ever wonder how Beavis and Butt-head celebrate the holidays? Yeah, me
neither, but what do you say we find out anyway? So for Part I of our
yuletide laugh fest, we have "Huh Huh Humbug", starring Beavis. It
begins Christmas Eve at Burger World where our heroes are working the
graveyard shift. Butt-head is fast asleep and Beavis is cooking a dead
rat. The manager comes to berate him and tells him screwing around will
never get him anywhere. Beavis falls asleep and dreams that he is the
manager of Burger World and McVicker is his lowly employee. McVicker
asks if he can go home early to be with his family, and Butt-head asks
the same, however Beavis reminds him that he has no family and decides
to go home himself, forcing Butt-head and McVicker to stay and work all
night. So our Mr. Scrooge goes home and settles in to watch that
timeless Christmas classic, Ebeneezer Screw, with veteran actor Tiny
Johnson. The festivities are interrupted when Butt-head, now a ghost,
comes out of the TV. He's not sure why he's there or why he's some dead
guy with cool chains, but he warns Beavis that he will see some ghosts
or something. So Butt-head leaves and Beavis gets back to the porno,
when suddenly the Ghost of Christmas Past (Anderson) comes in and shows
Beavis Christmases past, involving he and Butt-head doing nothing but
sitting on the couch. He tells him he's wasted his life, however it
doesn't seem to phase Beavis in the least. Next, Mr. Van Driessen,
playing the Ghost of Christmas Present arrives and shows Beavis via
television the McVicker family. The patriarch managed to sneak out on
his break and bring home a meager Christmas dinner of a cheeseburger
and fries. Van Driessen explains that the family is poor and starving
and urges Beavis to give McVicker a raise, but all he's fixated on is
the fact that McVicker stole food and should be fired. Van Driessen
leaves and in comes Mr. Buzzcut as The Ghost of Christmas Future, who
shows Beavis his head stone that blatantly tells the world he never
scored. As Beavis contemplates in mending his ways, he's awakened from
his dream by Butt-head, who says it's his turn to sleep. Beavis tells
him of his startling vision of the future and that it's pretty cool.
Part II "It's a Miserable Life", starring Butt-head. As you could probably tell, this is a take on It's a Wonderful Life, with Butt-head in the Jimmy Stewart role. Now, you remember how at the beginning of that movie all of George Bailey's friends were praying for him, wishing him well? Here, all of the residents of Highland are praying that the Almighty will kill Beavis and Butt-head. They blame those two for all of their problems. In response to this, the arc-angels send an inexperienced angel to do away with them. Meanwhile, Beavis and Butt-head are spending Christmas Eve looking for chicks, but there are none to be found. They go to a bridge and think it would be cool to jump, when suddenly Charlie appears. They don't believe he's their guardian angel, so to prove to them that he is and that the world would be better off without them, Charlie randomly selects Butt-head and shows him what the world would be like if he were never born. It turns out that without Butt-head, Highland is a happy place. But what became of Beavis? He's working in a soup kitchen with a very assertive Stewart. Even though Butt-head was apparently never born, he's still able to interact with the people for some reason. He tries taking Beavis with him, but the soup kitchen patrons beat him up and throw him out. After that, Butt-head goes back to the bridge and asks to have been born and stuff, so things are returned to normal, Charlie fails at his task, and the boys go home, having not learned a thing, except that although the world sucks, it would suck a lot more without them.
This was the first Beavis and Butt-head episode I remember watching. It seems to capture the spirit of the season, even if said spirit is lost in our protagonists. In between the episodes are some Christmas music videos, and a new segment called Letters to Santa Butt-head. In a mock-up sleigh with Beavis as his reindeer, Santa Butt-head reads letters that were supposedly sent in by real viewers, but read aloud by actors. The letters feature young people bitching about the holidays, bitching about their families, some chicks ask for Beavis, and some guys with funny names. In the end though, a chick asks for Beavis AND Butt-head, so hopefully their Christmas was merry. So fans of the show, this is definitely worth checking out. It really beats the 1994 Christmas special that only featured them watching music videos.

Too many spoilers have been listed here, so bear with me as I give my own
explanation of why this is so good.
Actually, there really isn't much to explain. It's simply Beavis and Butt-head re-hashing two traditional Christmas tales, in the (then) twisted mannerisms of Mike Judge. A completely unhealthy mix that somehow still works. The first tale threatens the mood of Charles Dickens's "Christmas Carol," while the second one rips "It's a Wonderful Life" apart. Only Trey Parker and Matt Stone could do something crazier, and have.
Beyond that there are the segments in between, such as the "Letters to Santa Butt-head," and Yule Log scenes. The Yule Log scenes were lame, but the Santa Butt-head scenes were good for a chuckle. I don't think any straight guy wouldn't be turned on by the last letter even if they had the three-point I.Q. that Highland's Most Hated are lacking. The VHS & DVD releases of this episode contain music videos and other segments from the 1993 B & B Christmas Special that this lacked when it originally aired. It may not be good for small children, but it is good for laughs and deserves to be a stocking stuffer in your collection.
Funny as hell christmas special cartoon about two parodies of famous
christmas tales,played out hilariously by Beavis and Butt-head, two slacker
teenagers who have a love for pornography and their only long time goal is
to "Score". The first one features Beavis playing the role of "Ebenezer
Screw" lol, and he's an arrogant boss at burger world, who's visited by 3
ghosts (you know the story) played hilariously by Mr Vandriessen, Coach
Buzzcutt, Tom Anderson, and Butt-head as Jacob Marley, trying to change the
ways of Beavis. But it doesn't do too much until Coach Buzzcut shows Beavis
his fate as the phrase "Here lies Beavis, he never Scored!" on his
headstone. With jokes left and right and a lot of funny toilet humor,
terrifically by the 2 morons with jokes like "I'm gonna go home and unwrap
my weiner!", nothing beats Beavis and Butt-head.
The second half of the video features the same two porn-freaks. This christmas parodie is about the ultimate slacker Butt-head, who doesn't do ANYTHING with his life, and it seems that he has a major influence on anyone he comes in contact with, especially Beavis. This Christmas though, things are about to change. Everyone in Highland is sick of Beavis and Butt-head, after all, they ruin everything for everybody from Stuart Stevenson, to Principal McVicker, and their prayers are heard by god, who dispatches their guardian angel who is fed up with trying to reach the two idiots and has completely given up after numerous signs he gives them to change their ways. On Christmas eve he confronts the two of them and tries to convince them to kill themselves so the world would be a better place, with numerous wisecracks and jokes as their response, Their guardian angel, named Charlie, takes Butt-Head to an alternate world, leaving Beavis behind, where he shows what it would be like if Butt-head was never born! But of course Butt-Head doesn't understand and makes a joke out of it putting it that it just plain "sucks" to Charlies every point. The alternate world Charlie takes him too is a world full of joy and happiness because of Butt-heads absence, and a hilarious view of Beavis without Butt-Head there. I believe this was the funniest of the two halves of Do Christmas. With phrases like "We Wish you a merry Bunghole" Beavis and Butt-Head Do Christmas is a must-see for the holiday season, or anytime. If you've never seen there show before, go out and see it right away!!!
