Beavis & Butthead

1 Flares Twitter 1 Facebook 0 Filament.io 1 Flares ×

It was only a matter of time before I posted on these guys, there was no way the90sblog was ever going to go without an inclusion of these two. This in my opinion was The Cartoon of The ’90s

Beavis and Butthead

I was a massive fan, one that had the required acquired taste which meant people either loved or hated them. There was no in between and my feet as friends would testify would be firmly planted in the love them camp. There may have been a danger of one point of my life revolving around these two. The series ran from 1993 to 1998.

In my opinion how can you look back on the ’90s without Beavis & Butthead entering your thoughts?

Beavis & Butthead started for me when I visited California in January 1994. I kept seeing them appear on TV when I was in bars or flicking around channels whenever I found myself in front of a TV but I never paid any attention to them until I went to a Superbowl party enthusiastically indulging in a very American occasion in a very British way of drinking lots of beer so I was already feeling a little merry by the half time.

Not sure what I remember between The Dallas Cowboys v The Buffalo Bills on January 30th 1994 other than The Cowboys winning but I remember well my very first episode of Beavis & Butthead.

At half time someone had switched the channel on the TV and there was all these well educated people going crazy for a cartoon so I thought this must be good so I’ll watch too, little did I know after my introduction to Beavis & Butthead I would never be the same again. For the remainder of my time in California I knew I was hooked and wanted to see more episodes of the legendary twosome. When I got back to the UK I wondered on how I can get to watch more episodes of Beavis & Butthead without ready access to MTV and my wish was granted in April of 1994 when Chanel 4 decided to screen them late every Friday night. I remember rushing home from my bar job at the time every Friday evening to get to see them.

Also in addition to telling friends on my return to the UK of the wonderful places I visted and things I did in California I also had to mention the discovery of Beavis & Butthead.

I have since found out my first episode of Beavis & Butthead was called Citizen Butthead. On President Clinton’s planned visit to their school Principal McVicker dreads the prospect of Beavis & Butthead meeting the president so from an emergency meeting in the morning he decides to give them a pass to take the day off school as it would be a disaster if these two got anywhere near The President as only the handpicked elite students would be allowed to meet The President…..but it doesn’t work out that way as Beavis & Butthead decide to walk around the school to boast to the other students about their day of freedom The Principal has given them.

Beavis & Butthead episodes are nowadays available on DVD at places such as Amazon where you can order special editions and other official episode compilations at discount prices with first class customer service and fast delivery.

It was sad in 1998 when the creator Mike Judge decided to kill them off but for me the Cornhlio impressions continued well into the noughties and I paid little attention to South Park when that became the cult cartoon at the very end of the ’90s.

In addition to the episodes that aired from 1993 to 1997, in 1996 a full feature length movie was made called “Beavis & Butthead Do America”.

As I write this in 2011 it is said that by the Summer there will be new episodes of Beavis & Butthead being shown. I hope this is true.
