So MTV is planning on bringing back Beavis and Butt-Head, and they’re wasting no time starting their marketing…
The year was 1993, and it seemed that all America wanted was some T.P. for its bunghole.
Luckily, two men were up to the task. Seventeen years ago, “Beavis and Butt-Head” debuted on MTV, running for four years and sending a whole nation of lawmakers into a frenzy about The State Of America’s Youth. Turns out they had reason to be concerned. In 199 episodes and one feature-length movie, Beavis and Butt-Head aimed a flickering glow at what we were to become, predicting, in all their lazy, snarky, acne-smeared glory, the Internet Generation.
Before there were LOLcats and Failblog, there were two guys on a couch talking about butts and making dumb jokes at everyone else’s expense. Nothing was sacred. Everything sucked. Especially adults.
