The New York Post hung a big, fat, sirloin in front of our faces this morning when it reported MTV has confirmed 30 new episodes of the hit series, “Beavis and Butt-head,” are underway. Best of all, they’ll remain unchanged — they’ll still be in high school and participate in the same monotone banter, despite having aged seventeen years…just like Christy Turlington and Christie Brinkley!
They’ll also still be obsessed with music videos, but since MTV isn’t interested in music videos anymore, the duo is more likely to aim their insults towards the Lady Gagas and the Situations of today…and possibly even at the girls of The Hills if we’re really lucky.
I wasn’t even a “double-digit girl” in 1993 when the show premiered (I was about to turn 7), so I’m particularly stoked for its reboot. Can’t you just hear their inflamed adenoids now? I can! I can see their sweat stains and their nose hairs and their cracked lips from here! Oh! And think of the mysogyny jokes! Considering earth’s new name is “Misogyny,” it’s only perfect the show’s undergoing a resurgence. But I’m excited! And you should be too, because there’s never been a better time to be able to make a doughnut out of your stubborn belly fat than when “Beavis and Butt-head” makes it’s triumphant return to television.
