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.
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.
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.
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.
