New Beavis and Butthead: The Twitter Reaction
[ Social Media]

On Thursday, the Mike Judge series Beavis and Butthead was revived for a new generation, and they did not fail to deliver on the modern-day cultural references. The guys took shots at Twilight and Jersey Shore, all while discussing music videos from bands like MGMT.

Beavis and Butthead are back, and they’re current.

The original show aired from 1993-1997 on MTV, and gained an instant following. Of course, it was also met with criticism for its frequent lewd humor. But as Butthead would say, those people suck.

The series spawned the 1996 movie Beavis and Butthead Do America, which starred the vocal talents of not only Mike Judge, but Bruce Willis, Demi Moore, Greg Kinnear and David Letterman.

And last night, they were back in classic form. Though the topics of conversation have changed, the animation hasn’t. Butthead is still rocking the AC/DC shirt and Beavis still with the Metallica shirt. And for a half an hour, things felt quite nostalgic. Check out the episode below:

Here’s some of the Twitter reaction (both positive and negative). I’d have to say, most of the reaction so far seems pretty positive –

        I am very serious and I dont like cartoons that hurt my world view………..My name is too serious and I in fact like dog wang

        • Mr. Cornholio

          Too serious is gay (his name sucks) is an anal retentive buttmonkey. He wouldn’t know he was one even if The Seminiferous Tubloidial Buttnoids fell out of the sky of the sky and landed on his pinhead.

  • RJMac

    I KNEW there was a reason I gave up watching MTV a long time ago……first The “Real” World, then the Jersey Shore, and now this.

    Now, the M in MTV stands for Moronic.

    • http://www.webpronews.com/ Jeremy Muncy

      No, it stands for Music.

      • Too Serious…

        No, I’m pretty sure it has been changed to moronic.

        • too serious is gay

          You should try going out and finding a girl. You probably live in your mothers basement and sniff chicks panties that you stole from the local high school ………You are worthless

    • Superstarseven

      There is a very loooong gap between the premiere of Real World and Jersey Shore.

    • Ninja

      …like you ^-^ no man the “M” is really for mason as in other business symbols it’s a way to brainwash the public as if the illuminati masons have any control lol. A lot of Americans aren’t as stupid as they think everyone’s aware many just choose not to say anything to avoid embarrassment/punishment but there’s a 99% occupy wall street happening all over the US anarchy there are more of us than them they are only the 1% mafia gang with their “one world order wanna-be” plan that will never happen.

  • Too Serious…

    Wow, the return of another show that perpetuates the stupidity of America. What a great job Mike Judge, you really did it!

    • too serious is gay

      You are what is stupid with America. Your mother is a whore and you are a twink. go eat a razor blade……….. cunt

  • Richie

    THEY’RE BACK!!! And its about time! Watching the new episode took me back to the mid 90s…loved it! The topics of conversation have changed, but it was just as good as the old shows! Mike Judge hasn’t missed a beat with his creativity of one of the funniest duos on TV!!

  • Moshe

    Finally something good to watch on Mtv!I haven’t watched that channel since the 90’s lol.

  • Mike

    “Beavis was crying Huh Huh Huh”

  • koali

    Beavis and Butthead are funny in a sad way. And I started seeing them everywhere!

  • Ninja

    Eric Santry needs to stop being a negative nancy he’s really just depressed about his life and hardly laughs about anything like everything has to be taken seriously all the time. He doesn’t even smile in his photo or show his eyes so how do you know if he’s being honest? He’s probably just conforming with the human idea of sophisticated society who believe watching the Jersey Shore and Beavis and Butt-Head is for the lower IQed population *they are wrong* Beavis and Butt-Head is awesome but it hasn’t even touched how the old episodes of them are I hope it will still keep me interested.

  • Mike G

    I saw the original B&B back on “Liquid Television” (Frog Baseball). I watched in the 90’s and it was hilarious. This new one is current but it wasn’t as funny as people make it out to be. It had it’s moments. Looks like Judge is using old cut shot clips from the original series as it sometimes went to standard definition.
    Make it current 100% Mike!

  • Mr. Cornholio

    Beavis and Butthead return and they rule! Now if only MTV featured Music Videos like back in the day instead of contrived fake-reality shows populated with people nobody should care about, then MTV wouldn’t suck so badly. B and B were a step in the right direction

    Word to the wise to the Records labels, if you paid for videos for major artists, you would sell more downloads and video downloads. OR how else do you explain that Vinyl records outsold LPs last year? (Abbey Roads by Beatles No. 1 in sales)

    Eric Santry is a fucking idiot.dumb shit fuck ass idiota!

    I not only watched, I wrote about it! See http://wtim.es/sF7XSq

  • Blanche D.

    The show is still as funny as ever BUT I noticed one thing different about it this time around – they’re turning the sound down on the videos while B&B are talking, which I find distracting. That was always part of the show’s appeal to me, discovering new music from very odd videos. Would love to be able to hear the music!
