20th Anniversary of Beavis and Butt-Head’s Debut on MTV


Conversation Starters

  • Happy 20th Anniversary to Beavis and Butt-Head! What’s the best animated classic television show? – Beavis and Butt-Head, Simpsons, Family Guy, or South Park?
  • Today in the 20th anniversary of Beavis and Butt-Head’s debut on MTV! Is it Mike Judge’s best work? (Daria, King of the Hill)

Fast Facts

  • Mike Judge, creator of “Beavis and Butt -Head”, also created “King of the Hill”
  • The character Tom Andersen is an early version of King of the Hill’s Hank Hill
  • On TV, AC/DC and Metallica logos appear on Beavis and Butt-Heads’ shirts…on T-shirts and other memorabilia, however, they respectively say “Skull” and “Death Rock”
  • Butt-Head is inspired by one of Judge’s neighbors when he was in college: a 12-year-old who claimed to feel zero pain from getting kicked in the rear…he dubbed himself “Iron Butt”
  • Beavis was the name of one of Judge’s other neighbors, but the similarity ends there
  • According to Beavis and Butt-Head, everything is either “Cool” or it “Sucks”
  • When the duo are watching Sammy Hagar singing for Van Halen, both are taken aback and rage about how the band fired “David Van Halen” (AKA David Lee Roth)
  • For the first few seasons, the disclaimer to Beavis and Butt-Head was…”Beavis and Butt-head are not real. They are stupid cartoon people completely made up by this Texas guy who we hardly even know. Beavis and Butt-head are dumb, crude, thoughtless, ugly, sexist, self-destructive fools. But for some reason, the little weinerheads make us laugh.”
  • Beavis and Butthead made their return to MTV in 2012
