Storyline

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.

Trivia

The music commentary B&B would say was quite often the result of Mike Judges own feelings towards the songs, even going against artists who kids thought where great at the time and deeming them as bad music. This quite often actually had impacts on teenagers that they would then change their minds about certain bands. This was the case with a lot of the rock songs. Mike Judge also mentioned he felt a vibe with teenagers that rap music was starting to sneak in and would become cool among kids so much that he occasionally would depict Beavis as a lover of rap music too.

Goofs

While Beavis enters his Cornholio phase, in at least one instance he claimed Lake Titicaca was in Nicaragua. It's actually on the Bolivia/Peru border. See more »

Quotes

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!

Crazy Credits

For the first few seasons the disclaimer was: Beavis and Butt-head are not real. They are stupid cartoon people completely made up by this Texas guy who we hardly even know. Beavis and Butt-head are dumb, crude, thoughtless, ugly, sexist, self-destructive fools. But for some reason, the little weinerheads make us laugh. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the episode "For better or verse", the original version contained two fire references that were eventually removed in later showings:a scene with Beavis showing Butt-head how to light aerosol spray on fire (which singes him), and fire references in the Das EFX video. See more »

Funny and much smarter than meets the eye
23 December 2004 | by RileeffSee all my reviews

I liked Beavis and Butthead when I watched it in 1993-1994. The show was much smarter than was advertised. For one thing, it realized that sex and sexuality is at the base for many more human actions than is generally realized and accepted. The format and execution may have been childish but the concepts and ideas were fairly advanced. In that way, Beavis and Butthead was a much more psychological show than a lot of the other garbage that has floated around in TV history. The fire comments, the animal abuse, etc, is the part of the show that is unfortunate. Without such things, however, there would be no Beavis and Butthead. Still, the show does not attempt to hide that these activities are sick and is a much more honest show in that respect than many others. Beavis and Butthead was a necessary show for tackling topics, no matter how stupid, that are rarely touched upon in society. In that way, it provided (GASP!) a service. The characters around Beavis and Butthead were funnier than Beavis and Butthead themselves, such as Anderson and Buzzcut. For anyone who has ever done or wanted to do anything retarded (haven't we all been there?), Beavis and Butthead is for you. Personally, I've been Beavis and Butthead level stupid at times, myself, and I really enjoyed the show.
