Today, Mr. Van Driessen's class is going on a field trip. He reads off the students' names as they board the bus and conclude that's everyone, except for you know who. The two dim-wits are still in the classroom, wondering where everyone is. To pass the time, they decide to write "big butt" on the board. Before they set about their task, they see a message written in the corner of the board, reminding the class about the field trip. Finally getting a clue, they race out of the school and make it to the bus before they take off. As they drive up the mountains, Van Driessen takes out his guitar and takes requests, while Beavis and Butt-head moon the passing cars. Van Driessen orders them to the front of the bus, where he feels they can stay out of trouble. Well, they do until the foul mouthed bus driver curses out the other drivers on the road, which Beavis and Butt-head quickly imitate. After that, Van Driessen brings back his guitar and sings "Touch A Mountain." In the middle of the song, the bus driver realizes he'd missed a turn and slams on the brakes, causing Van Driessen to fly through the wind shield, over the side of a cliff and fall thousands of feet. R.I.P. David Van Driessen, we hardly knew ye.

Don't worry, he's not dead, though he would be if he were not a cartoon character. Homer Simpson survived a cliff dive and so can Van Driessen. And much like Homer, Van Driessen is swung around by the clumsy rescue chopper, hitting the ambulance and police cars as he's finally taken to safety. Beavis and Butt-head conclude that this was a pretty cool field trip.

This one is definitely worth checking out. It's pretty funny, it's got everything people like about this show, and Van Driessen's song is pretty catchy. The beginning reminds me of the episode where Beavis and Butt-head keep taking the wrong bus home, due to falling asleep and missing the regular one. I believe it's called "Shortcuts." I'll look at that one next. For now, check out "Bus Trip".
