One of Hollywood’s most talented prosthetic artists decided to show us how scary his talents can be by sculpting real life maquettes of Beavis and Butthead. Kevin Kirkpatrick, of The Wolfman and Avengers fame, is the man responsible for the strange mixture of dread and sympathy you’re currently feeling. These guys are turly ugly. Even by 1990′s standards. (via Reddit)

10 Classic MTV Shows That Didn’t Suck http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/10-classic-mtv-shows-that-dont-suck/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/10-classic-mtv-shows-that-dont-suck/#comments Thu, 03 Nov 2011 17:28:31 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=234088 There used to be a lot of cool sh*t on MTV.

Last week’s resurrection of Beavis and Butthead has got us pretty excited. It’s also got us pretty nostalgic. We’ve been thinking about all of the other classic MTV shows that have come and gone over the years. Instead of letting these classic programs be lost to history, we demand that you sidle up and watch the clips below. There used to be a lot of cool sh*t on MTV. It’s easy to forget that nowadays. I’m actually a little bit blown away by looking back and seeing the influence a lot of these shows have had on modern pop culture.

Yo! MTV Raps

Hip-hop owes everything to Yo! MTV Raps. The show was the only legit source for finding cutting edge rap and hip-hop videos, not to mention glorious trainwreck interviews like the one above. This served as a springboard for hosts Ed Lover and Dr. Dre who went on to make the comedy, Who Da Man? It is perhaps the finest film about guys who know a lot of rappers and are also cops.

Sifl & Olly

Liam Lynch took recordings he made with childhood Matt Crocco and acted them out with the socks off his feet. MTV UK took a liking to them and began to run the clips in commercial blocks. This lead to a half-hour Sifl & Olly show on MTV in America. This proved that you really could find success by trying to crack up your stoned friends.

120 Minutes

Before alternative music took over, there was really only one place to watch it. For two hours every Sunday night, MTV would air videos from bands like The Smiths, Radiohead, and Sonic Youth. It was an awesome showcase of acts that you wouldn’t find through more mainstream channels and helped alternative music to break through in a big way.

Mike Judge‘s Beavis and Butt-Head is slated to return to MTV tomorrow night and once again take over popular culture, all while simultaneously satirizing it. I couldn’t be more excited. The duo pushed the boundaries of television when it ran in the ’90s, and their absence has been felt since the series ended in 1997.

With so many excellent episodes under their belt, it’s hard to choose a favorite, but here are my picks. Kick back and enjoy. There’s enough boobs, butts, and bloodshed here for everybody.

Customers Suck – Episode 03

As anyone who has ever worked in retail or food service knows, customers truly suck. Much like the deli scene in The Wrestler, this episode of Beavis and Butthead captures this phenomenon perfectly. Look at the way they keep showing up and wanting things. Dillholes.

1-900-Beavis – Episode 70

Commercials for 900 numbers ruled the airwaves in the days before Internet porn. It was big industry. Naturally, Beavis and Butthead wanted to get in on this. The show also adeptly points out that the hotties on the other end of the line are likely hulking bus drivers.

Top O’ The Mountain – Episode 110

Seeing a real living boob as a teenager can be as difficult and gratifying as climbing Everest itself. If not more. Beavis and Butthead went to great lengths to see the top of the mountain. The journey was good.

7 Cartoons More Harmful To Children Than ‘Spongebob’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/7-cartoons-more-harmful-to-children-than-spongebob-squarepants/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/7-cartoons-more-harmful-to-children-than-spongebob-squarepants/#comments Wed, 14 Sep 2011 13:00:53 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=228183 Seriously, thanks for finding this out NOW.

The post 7 Cartoons More Harmful To Children Than ‘Spongebob’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
A recent study revealed that fast-paced cartoons like Spongebob Squarepants are responsible for melting the brains of preschool-aged children. That’s good to find out now, years after the show has been on the air, A.D.D.-ing an entire generation.

However, all of the blame shouldn’t fall squarely on that cheery little sponge. Cartoons have been warping minds for years by promoting violence, causing seizures, and creating young people naive to the ways of the world. These seven shows in particular are much more harmful to a growing mind than Spongebob.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

When I was a kid, this show was responsible for 98% of the groin-kickings on planet Earth. It was all but impossible to watch an episode with friends and not have the party end with someone keeled over cupping their budding gonads. Also, its essentially one big commercial for pizza which lead to a wave of overweight wannabe ninjas. Case in point, Steven Seagal.

Bambi

This one is on the list because it will wreck your shit. Remember how you felt when Bambi’s mom was murdered? Now imagine if you were a toddler and watching it by yourself. You’d think, “What a lazy deer,” and not learn the consequences of shooting someone. Then you’d be considered one of the dumbest toddlers in prison.

Tom and Jerry

Originally, Tom and Jerry featured some of the most violent imagery on television. And it was awesome. Then as kids began to hurt one another, producers were forced to have the cat and mouse bury the hatchet someplace other than Tom’s skull. That’s how Tom and Jerry and Friends came about.  I argue that the watered-down pussification of the material was actually more damaging. Living amongst rodents? That’s how plagues start.

When Mike Judge presented the new Beavis and Butt-Head to the Television Critics Association, I raised my hand with lots of questions. He clarified that there’s no mention of the time that’s passed, they’re still watching music videos, the boys still look crappy in hi-def and they have still never scored.

There was still so much more to discuss though. Judge had said that he’s having Beavis and Butt-Head review movies, Siskel and Ebert style. We saw clips of a fat Beavis and Butt-Head, old Beavis and Butt-Head on scooters, and of course the great “Holy Cornholio” episode shown at Comic-Con.

Comic-Con 2011: Mike Judge Unveils New 'Beavis And Butt-Head' Footage

MTV held a cocktail party poolside in Beverly Hills with the stars of their summer and fall line-up. When Judge saw me, he knew I was the guy with lots of Beavis and Butt-Head questions, so this time he indulged me at length.

Q: What movies are you having Beavis and Butt-Head review?

Mike Judge: So far I’ve just done one, Human Centipede.

Q: Oh my God, that’s perfect!

MJ: Yeah, when I saw it, in fact that gave me the idea, I’ve got to have Beavis and Butt-Head review this. That’s the only one I’ve done so far and one of the things I have them do after they show a clip of the movie is I have them talking about how there’s going to be a Sex and the City 3, why don’t they combine it with a Human Centipede sequel and just have those girls all get lost in the forest, the doctor strings them all together and you get two sequels in one. Since I’ve done that, now there is a sequel to Human Centipede. It’ll still play hopefully. That’s part of the reason we’re waiting is we want to do a movie that’s just coming out. We have this animated set of them on a Siskel and Ebert like set.

Q: Are there studios that would let you see a rough cut to start writing and time it to a release of a movie?

MJ: Yeah, we’ve talked about doing that. Luckily, with that kind of stuff, it’s what we call repurposing, same with the videos. So it’s a little quicker turnaround.

Q: Would a mainstream studio allow you to Beavis and Butt-Head one of their films?

MJ: Yeah, they would but as far as putting it on DVD down the road, probably not. I think you have to go to the actors and stuff like that to do it.

Q: Well, you’re part of the Paramount family. You could at least coordinate with them.

MJ: Yeah, I think we’re going to do it for some. If it doesn’t end up being sellable on DVD and Netlflix then we’ll just do it for the time being just for fun.

Q: I love the “Holy Cornholio” episode. Did you ever think you’d bring spiritual depth to that character?

MJ: No, that started out very small, just going off on a tangent, just being goofy and then building on it and building on it. I got this really great feedback before it aired, just from people who worked on the show, just when I would say the name, it doesn’t mean anything. But then I started thinking of just making it sound more and more grand even though it’s this stupid little thing.

Q: The fat animation is hilarious, but I always wondered, they eat nachos all the time anyway. How are they so skinny?

MJ: That’s a good question. I spent a lot of time going back and forth on those drawings of them fat. Because of what you just mentioned, they’re eating crap all the time anyway but I just figured maybe if they’re really trying, because they think they’re going to get laid, then they’ll eat way more than usual and gorge themselves beyond what they normally would do. It was a fine line. When you make them fat, they automatically look old. If it’s baby fat, it looks too cute. I just wanted to come up with something that looked funny and I think they have a funny look.

Q: Is there an episode where they’re old and on scooters?

MJ: Yeah, it’s a short bit at the end of an episode. That’s another thing I want to do more of. That’s at the end of an episode. I’m thinking of doing an entire episode where they’re in their late ‘80s. I can always imagine them being in their teens and in their ‘80s but in between is tough for me.

Q: The best part of the video segments was when they had random conversations. My favorite was when Beavis started making pancakes. Can you still do that this time?

MJ: Oh yeah, quite a bit. I still do a lot of that. What’s kind of new and where I really felt like I hit a stride with this one and got a bunch of new information was having them watch Jersey Shore and 16 and Pregnant. I’d never had them watch shows with dialogue before. I just decided to play it like they’ve just seen every episode, because I have teenage daughters so I became very familiar with it. Also I gotta admit oddly and modestly, I got a little hooked on it myself. That was a new thing but then a couple of those, they just talk about whatever. So yeah, I still do that.

Q: Could there be another movie at some point?

MJ: Yeah, I guess so. I feel like I have a couple pretty good movie ideas that I’ve saved. I was going to maybe do two parter TV episodes but I ended up not.

The clip real for the new Beavis and Butt-Head show played before Mike Judge’s panel for the Television Critics Association. It showed the boys gaining hundreds of pounds eating fast food like that “Morgan Sherlock” dude, as they called him. They found out about the Twilight phenomenon and tried to become vampires, instead getting Hepatitis C. Of course they thought the sores and sickness were their sexy transformation. And further expansion on the Cornholio episode shown at Comic-Con had cultees analyzing the dual nature of “The Great Cornholio” and “The Almighty Bunghole.”

Comic-Con 2011: Mike Judge Unveils New 'Beavis And Butt-Head' Footage

“We’d been talking about doing another movie over the years,” Judge said. “I’d written down ideas for that. King of the Hill was done and I just thought who am I to turn this down? I really like doing it. I’ve been through development on animated shows. I thought, ‘I have a couple of good animated characters. Maybe I should just do it while I still can.’ I also feel like I’m a better director now.”

We know now that Beavis and Butt-Head will watch and give commentary on shows like Jersey Shore, 16 And Pregnant, UFC fights and internet viral videos. Judge promised some movie reviews too. “We got a little thing where they’re kind of like Siskel and Ebert reviewing a movie,” Judge said.

Judge actually tried branching out from music videos in the original series, but it didn’t work until MTV’s latest crop of reality TV. “We tried The Real World back in the day and for some reason it didn’t click. I watched a lot of Jersey Shore and now I’m hooked on it. It really clicked. It was just paydirt, 16 and Pregnant and all this.”

Judge promised they would also still watch music videos. With October 27 still months away, there’s time to work out the deals. They’re still waiting on Lady Gaga, but have the following confirmed. “Let’s see, Deadmaus. Yolanda B Cool. MGMT, T Baby It’s So Cold in the D. YouTube that.”

These videos will all be on the eventual DVD sets too. “That’s the other thing. The original run, the videos were only cleared for MTV so that’s why it’s very hard to get those on DVD. Now they’re going to be all cleared for everything.”

Beavis and Butt-Head are no longer hand drawn cell animation, but Judge made sure they look the same. “I think the digital process has gotten a lot better. Beavis and Butt-Head still look crappy. I’m using the same model sheets but ‘look better’ in the way I think looks better. It’s Hi-def but there are a lot of differences. To me it still feels like them to fans.”

Unfortunately, Judge confirmed, they have still never scored. Here’s hopin’.

For fans of Beavis And Butt-Head, there was much to rejoice about during day one of Comic-Con 2011. Well, for most fans, anyway. Unfortunately, this fan spent the entire panel waiting just outside the door, listening to everyone else laugh while I prayed for a few people to give up their seats. As with most of my desperate prayers, this one went unanswered, and I never gained entry.

But my bad luck (a.k.a. poor planning) won’t stop me from bringing you this clip from the new show. From the looks of it, the new version stays true to the original. By “stays true,” I mean the two hapless teenagers are still laughing like morons and maiming each other. And sadly, culture has devolved even further than anticipated since the original show went off the air, which means that the duo now have plenty of new material to ridicule (i.e. Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, UFC matches, etc.). What a sad age we live in.

It’s that time again, when the entire globe descends on the San Diego Convention Center for the biggest movie/TV/comic book extravaganza of the year. Screen Junkies will be at Comic-Con 2011 in full force with our backpacks and sunscreen because God forbid our little nosies should get burned. Be sure to let us know what you’re interested in seeing covered. I know last year you guys asked for a bunch of TV coverage, and it looks like you’re going to get the same this year, especially on opening day. Comic-Con kicks off with a ton of TV panels, including Game of Thrones, Archer, Dexter, and Beavis & Butthead (YAY!!!!!). There’s also an indie vampire movie entitled Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 making an appearance in Hall H in the morning. I don’t think the organizers are expecting much of a crowd for that one. I just hope no one gets stabbed in the face with a pen this year over a seat. I still have significant loss of my peripheral vision.

Here are our picks from Thursday’s schedule. You can check out the entire schedule HERE.

Though they should be well into adulthood and Oxycontin addictions by now, Beavis and Butthead will be  forever frozen in their teenage forms when they return to MTV later this year. MTV President Van Toffler told Rolling Stone what we can expect from “Beavis and Butthead” 2.0:

“I felt like there was a whole crop of new artists — and what the world sorely missed was the point of view that only Beavis and Butt-Head could bring. They’ll be self-contained segments with the boys in different situations like they used to be. But this time around, they’ll watch”Jersey Shore,” UFC matches and user-generated videos from YouTube, in addition to music videos.” All of the programming will be displayed on the duo’s TV, even if it comes from YouTube — “like silly videos of cats playing music.”

So, they have Apple TV? How the hell’d they figure out how to set that up and I still can’t. I guess I need like a different cable or something.

“It will be much more viral this time around. We’re going to plant seeds of the characters throughout social-media networks like Face­book and Twitter, in addition to traditional programming on television and, potentially, in theaters. It’s formatted very well for the Internet because it’s short-form.”

I’m glad to see the show returning. Even if it is just a vehicle to see Butthead with Pauly D‘s shape-up and Beavis with Snooki‘s poof.

National productivity: your days are numbered. That’s because Viacom, the media giant behind channels like MTV and Comedy Central, finally reached an agreement with Hulu to get their shows back on Hulu’s internet webhome. Now America can comfortably ignore its stupid bosses and their requests to do actual “work, knowing that streaming versions of “The Colbert Report,” ”The Daily Show,” “Jersey Shore” and “Tosh.0” are all on the same site, easily accessible from a cubicle computer. So now you can watch internet videos, then watch the internet video version of”Tosh.0” comment on those other videos, and soon your computer becomes a Cookie Monster-esque monster that tries to devour itself.

A disagreement between the two parties over — what else? — money, money, money saw Viacom yank its programs off Hulu. Now they’re all back, including backlogs of “Beavis & Butthead” and “Chappelle Show,” if you opt for Hulu’s shitty subscription thing. Of course, many of Viacom’s shows were already available for streaming on stand-alone sites, but let’s face it: if the latest “Colbert” and re-runs of USA‘s “Weird Science” aren’t on the same website, then what good is either show?

“Beavis and Butt-Head” is coming back to MTV this summer, so a whole new generation of kids get to marvel at authority figures begrudgingly saying “Butt-Head.” The cast of “Skins,” MTV’s new PTC scapegoat, announced the revival of the animated duo at the channel’s upfront in New York City, THR reports.

This isn’t much of a surprise, given Mike Judge made his intentions to resurrect the show last July. Since MTV doesn’t play videos anymore, Judge might have to find a new way to easily knock out 60% of the show’s run time. Maybe he’ll adopt a “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ approach this time around, having them comment on cheesy movies. Or in a meta twist, he could have them watching MTV’s lineup of reality programs, offering up commentaries on the”Jersey Shore” and “Real World.” Or maybe it will be YouTube videos. Don’t cost nuthin’.

Their return begs a host of other questions as well. Will the two be the same age? Will Mr. Anderson be returning, or does the use of his likeness in “King of the Hill” preclude Judge from re-introducing him? But the biggest question will be: Will fans of the original be able to enjoy, or even tolerate these characters 17 years later?

Mike Judge Plans ‘Beavis and Butthead’ Revival http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/mike-judge-plans-beavis-and-butthead-revival/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/mike-judge-plans-beavis-and-butthead-revival/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Good news. It looks like the monkeyslaps at MTV will show music videos again. Of course, they will be packaged with commentary from Beavis and Butthead. The deals aren't in place yet, but Mike Judge is planning on bringing the buttmunches out of retirement for a new set of 30 adventures. If picked up, the show will stick to its former format of sketch-videos-sketch with the focus being on more contemporary artists. In other words, there will be heated debate on who has the bigger schlong, Beavis or Lady Gaga. Smart money's on Gaga. (JoBlo)
