Awesome news! Beavis and Butthead are on their way back! According to the New York Post, Mike Judge is working with MTV to bring the classic cartoon comedians back to the airwaves with all new misadventures. It’s almost amazing how long it’s been since Beavis and Butthead were on the air, and people tend to forget how much controversy these two originally kicked up.

Beavis and Butthead were partially responsible for the TV ratings you see now before every show. They had some major heat for the things they said and did. They had the first show that I recall ever having a black screen warning before it. The social satire of the time was just too much for many parents, leading to an outrage and attempted ban on the animated fartknockers.

Now in a world filled with crap like Jersey Shore, Beavis and Butthead seem like high art by comparison. Apparently the show is coming back largely unchanged. There will still be mini stories, but they’ll be more current to today’s teens and they’ll still watch videos, but they’ll be newer. Hopefully this doesn’t become an excuse for MTV to pump out the popular videos, but a chance for the dumbass duo to skewer new trends like Lady Gaga.

I loved Beavis and Butthead, and the episodes still crack me up when I see them. The Christmas episodes remain some of my favorites. Just hilarious. I’m definitely looking forward to this.
