Beavis & Butt-Head Revival On Paramount+ Releases First Fiery Clip
It’s been over 10 years, but Beavis and Butt-Head are back for two more seasons of idiocy from creator Mike Judge and MTV Entertainment Studios.
Ahead of its August 4 premiere on Paramount+, the Beavis and Butthead revival series released a fiery first clip at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The original series ran for 7 seasons on MTV from March 8, 1993 to November 28, 1997, followed by a single-season reboot in 2011. Created by Mike Judge, the show followed two lazy small-town Highland teenagers Texas as they watched television. , ate junk food and committed acts of vandalism.
The show’s irreverent sense of humor spoke to ’90s Gen-Xers, but proved less popular with MTV viewers in 2011. The original show’s popularity led to the first release on big screen duo silly, the blockbuster movie Beavis and Butthead Does America in 1996, as well as the current revival on Paramount+. Two seasons have already been ordered alongside a TV movie, Beavis & Butt-Head make the universe, which saw the boys go interstellar. Now, after the events of make the universethey’ve been transported to 2022, where they’re even more unaware of how things work because they’ve missed a few decades.
To celebrate the imminent arrival of their continuing adventures in Beavis and Butt-Head by Mike Judge, Paramount+ has released a lengthy clip from the upcoming season. Beavis, the resident arsonist of the two, has a long-standing hypnotic obsession with fire, often causing him to say things like, “He h. He h. Fire!The clip shows Beavis doing his favorite thing in the form of a dumpster fire in an alley that orders Beavis to do whatever he wants. Check out the clip for “The Special One” below:
Paramount’s revival brings another perk with it, the addition of 200 episodes of Beavis and Butt-Head original seasons with intact and remastered music videos. A lot of the magic of the original show was the segments of the two watching music videos and riffing on them, MST3K-style. But for a long time, these segments had to be removed from DVD releases and retained most episodes from streaming platforms due to licensing issues. Legally, not only did every song have to be erased, but every person in every music video also had to be erased, a time-consuming and costly process that Paramount navigated. The new seasons will continue the tradition of music video riffs with the addition of the two mocking videos from TikTok and YouTube to bring them into the modern era.
Times have changed for Beavis and Butt-Head, and not just in how they look, but in the landscape of the world they step into. The original show was critically acclaimed for its scathing social commentary, but also met with widespread criticism from parents who thought it condoned and inspired violence. This moral outrage surrounding the show has long died down, with the show’s content looking almost quaint compared to some modern offerings. Where once parents had to worry about the lessons Beavis and Butt-Head imparted, now the show and its brand of humor returns to a simpler time. If the clip of Beavis meeting fire from the dumpster is any indication, this new Beavis and Butthead maybe finally matured, if only a little.
