BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD TO RETURN THIS SUMMER
I’m really over it with the cold, the dark, the snow, the ice, the sludge, the wind, and the retreating penis. It’s time for warm weather already. I know, I know, the groundhog didn’t see his shadow yesterday, spring is coming sooner rather than later, hoo-ray. But it needs to be sooner, and it needed to be sooner yesterday. Warm weather means long walks, outdoor beers, ladies in skimpy outfits, and, oh yeah — the return of two of metal’s greatest icons.
Yep yep yep — after telling the world this past summer that creator Mike Judge was working on new episodes of Beavis and Butt-Head, yesterday MTV announced at their upfronts (a presentation of upcoming programming for potential advertisers) that the animated series would return “this summer.” A more specific date was not provided.
The announcement was made by the cast of the controversial kiddie porn show Skins, and then, as part of what must be the ultimate media coup, tweeted by Justin Bieber:
This is obviously hilarious, seeing as a) neither Bieber nor the cast of Skins were born yet when Beavis and Butt-Head first ruled the airwaves, and b) I’m pretty certain that The Dynamic Duo would have nothing nice to say about Bieber or the male cast members of Skins (they’d probably wanna do the female cast members). But whatever. I’d rather tweens watch B N’ B than Jersey Shore or The Hills or whatever.
Presumably an official premiere date will announced soon. We’re gonna hafta throw some kind of party the night the show returns. And then just hope that Judge still has some of his old mojo, and doesn’t fuck it up.
