The Return of Beavis and Butthead!
We've heard the rumors for months, but MTV has made it official. Beavis and Butthead will be returning to MTV this summer. During an upfront presentation for the network yesterday, the cast of "Skins" was given the honor of announcing the return of Beavis and Butthead 14 years after their final episode. Also, Justin Bieber was so excited, he helped break the news on his twitter feed,
"Played hoops and just went to the MTV Upfronts...BEAVIS and BUTTHEAD are coming back!!!"
Funny thing, Justin Bieber wasn't even alive when "Beavis and Butthead" first premiered. Feel old yet?
It will be interesting to see what Mike Judge will bring to the table with this new series. There's the legacy of a four year, 200 episode run as well as a feature length film to contend with. But the boundaries of acceptable content on TV has been expanded since their last run. Shows like "Family Guy" have helped make "Beavis and Butthead" seem like family entertainment. I've always been a huge fan and cannot wait for their return this summer!
