Huh-Huh, Huh-huh, Huh-Huh, does that sound familiar? If it does, then you should know that Beavis and Butt-head are back! Beavis and Butt-Head premiere on MTV Thursday, October 27th at 10pm. Exciting for fans of the show, but the question is will it be as edgy as it once was. Back when it debuted in 1993 Beavis and Butt-Head displayed a pathological lack of compassion for others that was almost shocking, however nowadays sex, violence, and dudes getting punched in the genitals are all over the internet. The remake of this popular show will not only skewer music videos, but comment on YouTube videos and reality television such as Jersey Shore and 16 and Pregnant. But will it compare to some of the past rule bending moments. Here are a few of the most shocking moments:
- ‘Frog Baseball’: Was the first episode. This September 1992 animated short segment introduced us to Mike Judge’s destructive duo, which used an unsuspecting frog as the “ball” in their twisted game of baseball. This led to a whole season of ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’which began airing in March 1993.
- ‘The Great Cornholio’: Beavis pulled his tee up over his head, and adopted a pseudo-Spanish accent and went around calling himself “Cornholio.” Proclaiming he needed “TP for my bunghole.” Insane amounts of sugar turned him into this alter-ego, and anyone who dared to try and calm him down, got the response “Are you threatening me?” Hopefully “Cornholio” will make an appearance in the new series.
- ‘Beavis and Butt-Head and Snoop’: Critiquing music videos was their bread and butter back in the day, when a lot more effort, money and MTV airtime were devoted to such things. It’s fair to say they were at their best when they hated something. Season seven Beavis was very into Snoop Dogg’s famous song “Gin and Juice”. He even tried to convince Butt-Head that he was from Compton, and used to hang out with Snoop at the Compton swap meet.
