Where’s the MAGA gear? We know they’ve previously been to the Capitol and have been tracked by the FBI for years.

Also… Texans. :wink:

Edited for spelling and Capitolization.

Realistically speaking Beavis & Butthead would 100% be MAGA incel Q nutz, can’t say i would be remotely interested in a follow up about these guys but i guess i’ll have to wait and see what Mike Judge wants to do with them

Beavis and Butthead… as adults?

The most interesting thing about the original cartoon was that Mike Judge managed to make such a thoughtful, funny and compelling sitcom (King of the Hill) by retooling one of the hapless side characters from Beavis and Butt-Head into Hank Hill.

It’s been done.

I wonder if they are going to use the same software to age the actor that they used on DeNiro in The Irishman.

Until just now I never noticed the resemblance between Old Butt-head and Bill Dauterive. Maybe they’re related.

They aged gracefully.

That’s a serious slight to Daria, which was also a thoughtful, funny and compelling series based upon a tangential character.

Sincerely, if this is not “Beavis and Butthead do Insurrection”. I don’t think I’m interested.

Interesting; I never caught that show but wouldn’t have pegged the art style as a Mike Judge project.

IIRC, Judge came up with the original character, but Glenn Eichler and Susie Lewis did all the writing/production.

I own the series on dvd, and highly recco checking it out.

Don’t judge, I never had MTV. Suppose I’ll have to check it out if I ever get Paramount+.

Again:

I cannot fathom it, much the way many Gen Z peeps cannot now fathom life before the internet and smartphones.

I was 5 years old the day we got cable, which was coincidentally the same day that Mtv went on the air.

Which leads to my third confession:

To this day I have never had cable.

Seriously.

I’d probably have been much better off had I not been an Mtv kid…

It did mean having to spend a lot of my youth trying to piece together pop culture references through context clues though. Much like how I had to piece together the plots of all the 80s horror movies I never saw based on VHS covers at the video rental place.

I have had cable in the past, as an adult.

But as a kid, I had the local 3 channels and PBS. And when I moved near Wichita in 7th grade, Fox was the 4th. Never had cable as a kid or a VCR.

My friends did, though, and my cousin, so I was able to catch some MTV stuff. My friend in HS would tape Liquid Television for me as we were both animation fans.

I remember PBS used to have a show that played pop videos on Sundays, so I did get to see SOME of the 80s videos at the time.

Through much of college, though, I watched very little TV. Though MTV was often on in the dorm lounge as a Freshman, so I did see a lot of that for about a year.
