'Beavis and Butt-Head' Return Thursday with All-New Episodes

Getty Images/Handout(NEW YORK) -- Fourteen years since the last new episode of MTV’s seminal cartoon show Beavis and Butt-Head, the permanently adolescent and addled pair will make their comeback Thursday.

The show’s creator, Mike Judge, promises that the snickering pair has not changed but that they will be poking fun at contemporary “issues” such as the Twilight Saga, Ultimate Fighting and Jersey Shore.

Speaking to a panel of television writers, Judge said, “There's an episode where they see Twilight and they, you know they're like, all these girls are into vampires, and vampires are sexy.  They try to become undead.”

MTV president Van Toffler was asked if the Jersey Shore cast will get paid for appearing on the show.  He got a laugh from the audience with, “You know…I'd be scared to think of them with more money than they already have.  I mean, look at what they've done so far.  Um, so no, I don't think that will be an issue!”

Beavis and Butt-Head will be in Hi-Def but will retain the feel of the original shows.  They look the same and still wear their iconic AC/DC and Metallica shirts.

Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head will air Thursday at 10:00 p.m. on MTV.

'Beavis and Butt-Head' Returns; Creator Says They Haven't Matured

Getty Images/Handout(LOS ANGELES) -- A new Beavis and Butt-Head series premieres this Thursday on MTV, and not a moment too soon, according to creator Mike Judge.

During an interview on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday, Judge said MTV had been asking him for years to bring back the pair, but he finally decided it was the right time after watching the current crop of reality shows such as 16 and Pregnant, Teen Mom and Jersey Shore, and hearing the voices of Beavis and Butt-Head in his head.

Judge said Beavis and Butt-Head haven’t aged at all and “are still virgins, still really stupid.”

According to MTV, “America's favorite culture critics...now have more than just music videos to make fun of: Reality TV, the Internet, and Ultimate Fighting will all be crossing their TV screen.”

Judge told Kimmel he's heard many stories of people doing Beavis and Butt-Head imitations, but the biggest surprise was when he learned the late actor Marlon Brando was a big fan.  Judge told Kimmel that Johnny Depp told him a story of filming a movie with Brando and the two would imitate the pair.  Judge said Brando would do Butt-Head and Depp would do Beavis.

Judge also told Kimmel he got the inspiration for the Beavis character from high school.  Judge said a guy in his calculus class would sit in the front and laugh at everything a female teacher said, but he would do it somewhat under his breath in the Beavis voice.  As for Butt-Head’s voice, Judge said it was organic, he just looked at the completed drawing and started doing the voice.

Beavis and Butt-Head premieres Thursday, Oct. 27 at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

'Beavis and Butt-Head' Revival Clip Released

MTV Networks(NEW YORK) -- A clip from the revival of MTV's 1990s animated series Beavis and Butt-Head was released Thursday.

In the sneak preview, Butt-Head accidentally drills a hole into Beavis' hands, resulting in a trip to the hospital, where a religious group mistakes Beavis' injury for the saintly affliction sitgmata. They're later seen watching Jersey Shore and offering their typically inane commentary.

Beavis and Butt-Head
returns to MTV later this year.
