The duo of Beavis and Butt-Head may be best known for making fun of various music videos, but now, with the upcoming reboot of the iconic animated series, Beavis and Butt-Head, the pair are looking to riff on something a bit, shall we say, darker.
Creator Mike Judge revealed in an interview with Screen Junkies that while they may still be talking about shows on their mother station, MTV, they will also be watching movies, and one of them will be the much talked about horror flick The Human Centipede.
Judge talked about the inspiration for the upcoming episode.
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, Beavis and Butt–Head are back, and they may just be better than ever before. A panel was held at the 2011 San Diego Comic–Con for the return of the MTV series, which was moderated by Jackass star Johnny Knoxville and featured creator Mike Judge.
Attendees of the panel were treated to some clips from the show’s return, which will premiere this fall. The first clip showed the duo deciding that they needed to become vampires and werewolves in order to score some chicks after they saw Twilight. Also shown were bits from an episode called “Holy Cornholio,” which shouldn’t need much description for fans of the show to know exactly what to expect in said episode.
Now you can see almost five minutes worth of clips from the Cornholio episode courtesy of MTV by clicking on over to the other side now!
For most of us, just knowing that Jackass 3D is on the way was more than enough to sell us into theaters on October 15 when the movie will be released.
But now comes word of a little something extra that might just excite those of you already planning to see it even more so than you already were. It’s been discovered that Mike Judge‘s hilariously simple animated duo, Beavis and Butt-Head will make their long-awaited return in the movie.
Apparently MTV had Judge create an introduction for Jackass 3D that will see the nacho and heavy metal-loving cartoon characters discussing, well…3D! The intro will use the traditional animation style we know and love from the ’90s, but it is said that they too will be given the third dimension treatment specially for this return to glory.
Earlier this month a rumor made the rounds that Mike Judge might be working on 30 brand new episodes of his 1990s animated hit series, Beavis and Butt-Head.
The New York Post has made fans of the show who have longed for a return very happy today. Sources from MTV have confirmed that these rumors are not rumors at all, and that Judge is indeed working on new episodes of Beavis and Butt-Head. It’s not clear if the number of new episodes is 30, but in any case some new animated stupidity is on the way to us.
If you were an adolescent in the 1990s, you surely remember giggling along to an episode or two of Mike Judge‘s beloved celebration of idiocy, Beavis and Butt-Head. Since the last episode aired in 1997, a loyal cult following has remained behind the show — proving just how relevant something so silly could become — leading many to wonder if and when new episodes would be made.
According to REVIEWniverse (via Collider), an anonymous source has revealed that Mike Judge is working on 30 brand new episode outlines right now. As with all “anonymous sources,” this has to be marked as a rumor. But if true, it would be very exciting for fans of the show.
