Storyline

Beavis and Butt-head's lives revolve around three simple things. (1) Barely attending school, which sucks. They do nothing, they learn squat, they know diddly, they hate the teachers - and, amazingly, they manage to avoid being thrown out. (2) Trying to score with chicks - something we know they'll never achieve. (3) Watching TV. Lots of TV. If something in the real world doesn't relate to what they know from TV, it sucks. They especially enjoy "reviewing" music videos - or just commenting inanely on them. If a video contains heavy rock, scantily-clad babes or anti-authority figures, it's cool - otherwise, it sucks.

Crazy Credits

Before each episode, the following warning appears: "Beavis and Butt-Head are not role models. They're not even human; they're cartoons. Some of the things they do would cause a person to get hurt, expelled, arrested, possibly deported. To put it another way, DON'T try this at home" See more »

Alternate Versions

The episode "kidnapped" also had some missing scenes when shown again:
  • The Fire references During the "Cool Kids" video.
  • A scene of Beavis trying unsuccessfully to light a lighter has been edited out.
  • When Stewart first walks in and Beavis and Butt-head get an idea to kidnap him, the thought balloons have been changed from lighters flicking to light bulbs.
  • When Stuart is watching Urkel, a shot of Urkel on the TV pointing to fire saying, "Did I do that?" has been removed.
  • During "Rapture," Beavis is trying unsucessfully to light his lighter before saying, "Just dial 1-800-WUSS".
  • The complete, unedited version of this episode appears on the home video release "Sticky Situations".

Huh, Huh, Huh, This show rules! Huh, Huh, Huh!
29 January 2002 | by dootussSee all my reviews

In a normal point of view Beavis and Butt-Head was one of the most controversial shows that ever aired on T.V. In fact when it premiered, it was the most controversial show on the air. But then again, they made us laugh with their stupidty, and at their idiotic antics! Yes they were sexist, and didn't care for no one but themselves but this show was still funny anyways! I myself a loyal fan of B&B will usually pop in a Videocassete tape of episodes on my VCR and laugh till my sides ache!

This show is cool! Heh, Heh, Heh!
