New Beavis and Butthead: The Twitter Reaction

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 –
