Beavis and Butt-Head is having a pretty solid year. The show had its first new movie Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe since 1996 and will have its first new season since 2011 this month, all of which is streaming on Paramount+.
Beavis and Butt-Head creator Mike Judge recently spoke with The New York Times where he revealed there were originally plans to do a live action/animated hybrid movie for the duo, but it it never panned out. Still, Judge adds that a live action movie isn't out of the question.
"Yeah, a live-action Beavis and Butt-Head for Paramount, the movie studio, which still could happen. At one point, there was an idea that was Beavis and Butt-Head are animated in a live-action world. We went down that road for a little bit. And we had a casting session, like two years ago, for just doing like teenage Beavis and Butt-Head. Didn't go as well as I had hoped."
In addition to all the new stuff, Paramount+ will also be streaming remastered versions of all the old episodes of Beavis And Butt-Head. It was recently confirmed that all remastered past episodes of Beavis And Butt-Head will feature the duo's classic commentary on the music videos of the day. Judge also said in a recent interview with Consequence that the duo will also be reacting to popular YouTube and TikTok videos in both Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe movie and the now-announced new series.
"[YouTube clips and TikTok] just sort of came up," said Judge. "Like, there's just so much to watch. We were limited to [music videos] on MTV, but the world is cluttered with so much video now. Now, whatever the demographic that was watching music videos [in the '90s] is probably watching this kind of TikTok stuff. And we all watch YouTube." Judge later joked that it's "harder than it looks to write Beavis and Butt-Head because they're so dumb," but mentioned that he's very happy with how the 2022 version of the duo came out.
In the meantime, here's nine brand new minutes of the show.
