America’s two favorite animated idiots will be returning to your television screen this summer. In the channel’s upfront presentation Wednesday (February 2), the cast of MTV’s “Skins” announced that “Beavis and Butt-head” would be coming back later this year.
Beavis and Butt-head first appeared in a short called “Frog Baseball” as part of an old MTV animation show called “Liquid Television.” The popularity of the short led to the development of the half-hour show, which juxtaposed the pair’s animated antics with their commentary about various music videos (usually terrible clips from obscure grunge acts or awful metal bands).
The original “Beavis and Butt-head” series ran for 200 episodes between its premiere in 1993 and its finale in 1997. In that time, there was also a feature film (“Beavis and Butt-head Do America”), a comic book series, a handful of video games and appearances on the MTV Video Music Awards and “The Late Show With David Letterman,” among others.
