Quite good
2 February 2013 | by (England, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Beavis and Butthead fail to impress Mr Van Driessen with their essay on a project of a woman they most admire from the history of women and so he asks them to do it again and basically put a lot more effort into it.

So trying to do it properly, the duo end up going into a library and asking the librarian for help. The only problem here is that the librarian is only too good and ends up helping a little too much.

She even stands on a stool to get some information for them where Beavis and Butthead enjoy a sneak peak.

The overall episode is not that special, but one thing I will say is that it does have quite a good punchline.
