Get out your AC/DC shirts and get ready to rock because MTV has confirmed that it is in fact bringing back the much beloved show Beavis and Butt-Head. So, like, get out your nachos and stuff.
When you have success in the animation world and your show somehow still gets canceled, I guess just wait a few years and try again because it seems like a lot of animated shows are getting revived these days after going off the air for several years — thirteen in the case of Beavis and Butt-Head . Doesn’t sound like they’re going to stray real far from the original premise, either.
The new series would keep Beavis and Butt-Head in their perpetual high-school state, but it would be updated so that the pals — who obsessively watch music videos on a battered TV set — could lob their snarky comments at more current targets like Lady Gaga. The return of “Beavis and Butt-Head” will be a backdoor means for MTV to return to showing music videos — something the network was founded upon but abandoned in the last decade to make room for popular reality shows like “Laguna Beach,” “The Hills” and “Jersey Shore.”
Lady Gaga, Kanye West, the plethora of crappy emo bands circling the drain of music — the list of egos and videos to choose from these days are endless, as writer and creator Mike Judge will surely to take aim things like Twitter accounts and YouTube videos as Beavis and Butt-Head navigate through a world that is far more tech savvy than it was when the show originally went off the air in 1997.
