'Beavis and Butt-Head' take on 'Jersey Shore': First video from MTV's revival is here! -- EXCLUSIVE

They’re back! Below is the first video from MTV’s upcoming revival of Beavis and Butt Head. Let’s put that another way: This is the first new Beavis cartoon produced for an MTV series run in 14 years. Yes, they say “bunghole.” Yes, they poke fun of Jersey Shore.

As much as I want to put some quotes in here, I don’t want to spoil any of Mike Judge’s jokes. So let’s get right to it.

“I felt like TV was getting too smart,” says Mike Judge on the Comic-Con panel when asked why he’s bringing back the show.

Here’s your five-minute first look at the return of Beavis & Butt-Head (which is expected to return in October), and see below for our live coverage of the show’s panel from Comic-Con with Johnny Knoxville as moderator….

“I quit because I was getting a little burnt out,” Judge says about halting the show in 1997. “[Then] I kept writing ideas down and kept thinking about doing a movie. King of the Hill was done and they came to me. And I thought this would be pretty fun to do. I guess the answer is: I like doing it. Also, I like to feel like they’re kinda timeless. I was already pushing 30 [when the show launched], I didn’t know what was hip. Pauly Shore had a show that was a hit and everything he said was all California lingo and I thought, ‘I can’t compete with that.’ [Audience laughs]. So I just made it very simple.”

On the characters watching Jersey Shore: “It felt like pay-dirt to me. I hadn’t seen it. I started watching the DVDs. I don’t feel good after watching it, but I kept watching it. They’re also watching UFC fights.”

On using Koren animators: “It’s not a sweatshop. It’s an efficient use of space.”

Afterward, I asked Judge if he’d ever consider writing a sequel to his cult classic Office Space: “At one point I could have been talked into it,” he says. “Not anymore. When the British version of The Office came along and U.S. version, there’s been so much in that world. When I saw it at 10-year anniversary, [I liked it] but it also made me feel like I shouldn’t go back to that. I wouldn’t want to see sequel to The Big Lebowski — not that I’m trying to compare the two, but it’s one of those movies I can watch again and again.”

Judge then screened the long version of the Beavis preview. It included segments taking on 16 & Pregnant, Teen Mom and the Twilight films (where the duo try to find somebody to turn them into vampires to pick up girls). Fans went absolutely nuts over the footage, and it’s like the show had never been away.

      This will put the universe in balance once again.

    • Dusty

      Are you gonna feed him with you boob???ahahah-!

  • Matthew

    I guess I know which part of the show I’ll be fastforwarding through. Thankfully technology now allows us to fast forward what we couldn’t speed through in its original run. I don’t know why it can’t just *all* be cartoon. Why the inserts of MTV shows?

    No one would care if it was a 15 minute, commercial-free show (without MTV clips inserted) like Children’s Hospital, so long as it was on.

    • xxc

      um the best part was the commentary. they should have a portion of the show where they just make fun of current tv shows and movies.

      • SNIKT!

        If you fast forward through the Jersey Shore bits, you woulda missed the “Where Herpes came from” line. Too funny!

      • Jesse

        Or the “that’s how she answers the phone.” Hilarious!

      • Ashley

        I totally agree. The commentary was the best part.

    • matthew 2!

      Hey matthew, you obviously didnt grow up with beavis and butthead. The dvds take out all the videos. the beauty of b & b was/is there commentary on our world.

    • Matt

      “I guess I know which part of the show I’ll be fastforwarding through.”

      OH NO .. not THAT.. Please no Matthew.. please don’t harm us with your douchebaggery.

    • John

      I prefer to think of it as Beavis and Butt-head are dumb enough that they haven’t changed the channel in 15+ years, so MTV went from showing music videos to reality TV and they just went with it.

      • Lisa

        That’s what I was thinking!! They couldn’t find the remote or the batteries went dead & they just said, “Uuuhhhh,screw it”

      • April

        I couldn’t agree more!!

    • Mike

      Uhh, you have it backwards. The commentary is the best part.

    • Ilpalazzo

      Yeah the commentary is like MST3K, it’s great!

  • Joe

    Oh, this makes me sooooo happy!
    (Anyone else think Butthead seems much wittier in this incarnation? The Jersey Shore comments sounded more MST3K than B&B)

    • Matthew

      “You are Albino and gringo”. That’s amazing.

    • Katyo

      “I bet if they went back long enough, they could find out where herpes began.”

      I almost spit out my water. I know this was just a preview, but it was amazing. I grew up watching B&B, so I’m pretty excited about this.

      • saff

        OMG…I busted out laughing too. Too freakin’ hilarious!!! :)

  • Dysthymia83

    Butt-Head seems more intelligent.

    But yes, this is the greatest thing to happen in the history of human existence.

    • Jack Myhogoff


  • Yea

  • JoeC

    The 90’s are back! Yes!

  • M

  • Matt1

    Now, can we PLEASE get a sequel to the movie!!??

  • Babs

    Beavis and Butthead making fun of Jersey Shore = Nirvana.

    • Ashley


  • Jay


  • darclyte

    I can’t wait!!!

  • V

    “That’s how she answers the phone!” Genius.

  • Katyo

    I don’t know what I expected, but I laughed out loud about 10 times during this clip. Mike Judge is officially “The Man”. I can’t wait to see Beavis and Butthead again. I grew up watching these guys!

  • Pslightly Psycho

    In a pop culture landscape dominated by JERSEY SHORE douchebags, moronic reality shows like the Kardishians, Paris Hilton, Mob wives, etc., and the murder trial of Casey Anthony is viewed as entertainment, THANK SWEET JESUS that B & B are back!

    • Matt

      SOOO true!

  • Jose

    I was scared it might lose some of it’s feel, but damn i laughed so hard. But Beavis’s voice sounds a little different

    • rerun

      He hit puberty.

    • Jeff

      Mike Judge has said that the Beavis voice rips up his throat, so he might have toned it down – or he’s older and so he can’t hit that pitch like he used to do.
