Creator Mike Judge has reportedly outlined 30 new episodes for a possible primetime return to MTV.

It has been over 12-years since Beavis and Butt-Head were airing new episodes on MTV, but most people can still instantly recognize the unique “huh huh, huh huh” laugh of Butt-Head, or the “fire, fire!” cries from Beavis. The show produced 200 episodes over seven seasons, a feature movie, and now it seems that the trash talking duo are about to make their TV comeback on the network that made them- and creator Mike Judge- famous.

Since the end of the series, Judge has been a busy guy. He wrote and directed several movies including the cult classics Office Space and Idiocracy, he created King of the Hill and has leant his voice to several animated shows. The guy has been busy. Now, according to Reviewniverse, Judge is hard at work to bring back Beavis and Butt-Head for a slot on MTV’s new primetime lineup.

Recently MTV has begun to limit their once rampant slew of reality shows like the recently cancelled The Hills, in favor of scripted programming like The Hard Times of RJ Berger.

According to the report, Judge will keep the original show’s low budget look, and the format will remain true to the original episodes, where Beavis and Butt-Head comment on music videos. The show will feature current music videos, but the format will be the same.

No word yet on when the show might air.

2011 update!!!

Big, big news: there may actually be a reason to watch MTV after all. Last we heard, creator Mike Judge was busy outlining 30 new episodes of his classic TV show Beavis and Butt-Head. At the time, it was unknown when or even if those episodes would see the light of day, but Judge had faith. Well, it looks like all that early work paid off because MTV has officially confirmed that Beavis and Butt-Head will be returning to the network later this year! The show premiered in 1993 and maintained a wildly successful run through 1997, spawning numerous videos, DVDs, and one feature-length film. Behind all of this madness was creator/voice artist/genius Mike Judge (Office Space).

MTV’s report doesn’t give any information other than the fact that the show will air “this summer.” When we heard that Judge was working on 30 new episodes of the show, it was confirmed that they would maintain the show’s traditional “ghetto-tech” animation style. The two will also be featured doing what they do best, mocking contemporary music videos (ironic, considering the re-branding of MTV has all but exiled actual music videos on the channel).

The news of Beavis and Butt-Head’s return was announced at the upfronts for the network in New York City, and subsequently tweeted by (cringe) Justin Bieber. If you’re like Bieber, and are too young to actually remember the show, it centers on two high-school burnouts who spend their days mocking the television, being rude, and generally getting into multiple slap fights in each episode. So it’s time to start freshening up those Cornholio impressions, because Beavis and Butt-Head are back!


http://collider.com/...202/#more-74202

After several months of whispers and rumors (and a cameo in MTV Films' "Jackass 3D"), it appears as though America's two favorite animated idiots will be returning to your television screen. In the channel's upfront presentation Wednesday (February 2), the cast of MTV's "Skins" announced that "Beavis and Butt-head" would be coming back this summer.

"Solid day in NYC," Canadian pop sensation and "Never Say Never" star Justin Bieber tweeted Wednesday. "Played hoops and just went to the MTV Upfronts...BEAVIS and BUTTHEAD are coming back!!!"

Ironically, Bieber hadn't even been born yet when MTV viewers first got a glimpse of the two bored high school students. Created by Mike Judge (who would later go on to produce "King of the Hill" and direct cult-classic films like "Office Space" and "Idiocracy"), Beavis and Butt-head first appeared in a short called "Frog Baseball" as part of an old MTV animation show called "Liquid Television." The popularity of the short led to the development of the half-hour show, which juxtaposed the pair's animated antics with their commentary about various music videos (usually terrible clips from obscure grunge acts or awful metal bands).

The original "Beavis and Butt-head" series ran for 200 episodes between its premiere in 1993 and its finale in 1997. In that time, there was also a feature film ("Beavis and Butt-head Do America"), a comic book series, a handful of video games and appearances on the MTV Video Music Awards and "The Late Show With David Letterman," among others. (The show also inspired the spin-off series "Daria," which ran for 65 episodes between 1997 and 2002.)

This was my thought as well. I'm not sure if today's teens would really "get it". But regardless, I'll cherish these 30 new episodes. It's great that he's not changing the art style either. Making it more "modern" would have probably alienated old fans, while potentially not picking up any new ones anyway. At the very least, this will keep the old fans happy.

Beavis and Butthead are my guilty pleasure.

I recently watched the Beavis and Butthead movie (courtesy of my public library, they had the movie an all the episodes on DVD!) and still enjoyed it.

Now, for some reason I want to see a Beavis and Butthead/Idiocracy crossover...where Beavis and Butthead get accidentally sent to the Idiocracy future and make comments about it. (They'd probably feel quite at home there LOL).

Beavis, I have seen the top of the mountain. And it is good.

How about releasing the non-Mike Judge Collection episodes, just for good measure?

"This kicks ass!"



"I bet if Maiden ever did unplugged they'd still have explosions and chicks!"



"He went and wrote the ten condiments."


"Shit your ass down Lars and play the drums like you're supposed to!"

"Beavis Metallica sucks!"

"That James Hetfield dude looks like the Cowardly Lion."




"Stop in the name of all that which does not suck!"

These new episodes will probably be the only music videos MTV has actually shown outside of really, really, really late at night in years.

I can't wait to see the new episodes. Hopefully everything is still the same on the show.

Yea true... if this is going to get somewhat of a modern face lift...you can bet texting will be involved. :roll:
