Popularity: Most popular show on MTV with
ratings twice as high as anything else on the channel. Recent winner of California

off the air because he thinks the show is in 'bad taste'. Janet Reno (U.S. Attorney
General) thinks that shows like B&B are causing the "Decline of the Youth in the Western
Format: Coarse characters matched by the
appropriate crudeness of rudimentary animation. Seen in various scenes at high-school,
part-time jobs, regurgitating TV commercial jingles, but mostly sitting around watching
and commenting on music videos.
What makes it funny: Lampoons not just the
performers who are the MTV channel's lifeblood, but mercilessly depicts the many
real-life B&B's planted in front of the set watching them.

Who are Beavis and Butt-Head?
Beavis and Butt-Head are the
cartoon creations of Mike Judge and are the combination of every juvenile delinquent who
has ever walked the earth. They are a pair of idiot teens who are heavily influenced by
music videos, and anything else they happen to see on TV. They spend a good deal of
their time at home on the couch watching TV, which often gives them ideas of things to
do. They spend the rest of their time doing these things and causing general havoc
around their neighborhood. They usually aren't caught, when they are they rarely get
into trouble, and even if they do, they never learn anything from their experiences.
The Main Characters:
- Beavis: Beavis has blond hair which he wears in a
pompadour, vacant reptilian eyes, grinding predatory teeth, gray shorts, and a blue
Metallica T-shirt. He is a psycho with no attention span and only the most vague
perceptions of reality. He is the reactionary half of the duo. Favorite saying: "Heh
heh hmm hmm heh heh".
- Butt-Head: Butt-Head has tall brown hair
which is combed back, beady eyes, braces on his teeth with a a receding lip, red shorts,
and a gray AC/DC T-shirt. He is basically your average idiot teen without a future. He
is the instigator. Favorite saying: "Huh huh huh huh huh huh".
- Mr. Buzzcut: Hygiene, Physical Education,
and Drivers Ed. teacher at Highland High. An ex-military zealot who usually yells rather than talks, Buzzcut hates
Beavis and Butt-Head, and isn't the least bit shy about showing it. He'd just love to use a little corporal punishment
to reform our moronic heroes, but of course school policy prevents that.
- Mr. Van Driessen:
English and History teacher at Highland High. A classic liberal and aging hippie, complete with long hair and beard, and
a purple t-shirt with a big peace symbol on it. He tries to be understanding and compassionate to his students, but can
never seem to reach Beavis and Butt-Head. His attempts to teach them respect for women and appreciation for human
rights, art, nature, and culture always invariably fail.
- Stewart Stevenson: Nerd. Neighbor of B&B.
The boys put up with him because he has Pay-Per-View. Plus Stewart's dad has dirty
magazines. Stewart is short and kind of overweight, has blond hair, and always wears
blue shorts and a Winger T-shirt.
- Daria Morgendorffer: Smart. Student at
'Highland High'. B&B usually call her 'Diarrhea' and greet her by chanting 'Diarreah, cha-cha-cha.'
She's the girl with the black leather jacket and glasses in some of their classes at
school. Daria's smart, and she's just trying to get through high school so she can go
to college with people who actually want to learn something. Says smart things like,
"Butt-Head, why don't you go measure the friction caused by digitally oscillating your
wiener?", which confuse Beavis and Butt-Head.
- Tom Anderson: Anderson's this really old
guy who lives in the same neighborhood as our heroes. He is also ex-military and he
sometimes drones on about his life experiences, even though Beavis and Butt-Head never
listen. He pays B&B to do odd jobs for him, but always end up trashing his place.
Frequent customer at 'Burger World': "Large Fry, Pie, Large Coffee. PRONTO!"
Lesser Seen Characters:
- Lolitta and Tanqueray: Chicks. B&B
have had many chances to score with these two, but something always happens before they
actually get to do it.
- Todd: He's the leader of a local gang that Beavis and Butt-Head
would desperately like to join. Todd knows this, but he hates them and doesn't want
them around. Even when he says so and kicks their asses, they still think he's cool.
- Mr. McVicar: The principal at Highland High, where our
boys go to school when there's nothing good on TV. He's always really stressed out, and Beavis and Butt-Head never help
matters an Usually called "Mr. McDickar" by the boys.
- Billy Bob: Fat guy. Would like nothing better than to see Beavis and
Butt-Head's head on a stick. But he would probably eat it.
- Stewart's Mom and Dad: No first names have been given for them. Stewart has like, a
relationship with his parents. His dad is a teacher at Highland High, but it's not
clear what his mom does.
- Mrs. Dickey: Science teacher at "Highland
- Clark Cobb: Owner of Cobb's Family
Hardware, Mr. Cobb is an overzealous member of the Christian Businessmen's Association.
He's gotten Beavis and Butt-Head to participate in a couple of his projects, but never
for the reasons he's intended. Cobb seldom appears in public without his good friend
Socko the sock-puppet.
- Cassandra: A modern-day hippie chick, sensitive and emotional. She's also in Beavis and
Butt-Head's class, and she attempts to give them an understanding of art and beauty. Like Daria and VanDreissen, though,
she only serves to confuse our inept heroes.
Who is Cornholio?
Cornholio is the name of Beavis' alter-ego,
who surfaces and replaces Beavis' own personality when Beavis consumes far too much
sugar. The name Cornholio is derived from "cornhole," an American slang term for anal
sex. When Beavis turns into the Great Cornholio, he pulls his shirt up over his head
and wanders around proclaiming, "I am Cornholio! I need TP for my bunghole!"
Cornholio made his first appearance in the episode "Generation in Crisis." Mike Judge
and voice director Kristofor Brown realized that the character of Cornholio was funny
enough to carry an entire episode, and proceeded to write "The Great Cornholio," in
which Beavis' alter-ego becomes the central plot point. This episode is considered by
many to be the pinnacle of the Beavis and Butt-Head show.
More recently, the Cornholio character has re-emerged in "Buttniks," where our boys visit a coffee shop and the
"Crappuccino" again puts Beavis in Cornholio mode. Also, in "Screamers," both Beavis and Butt-Head pull their shirts
over their heads in one scene, although none of the standard Cornholio lines are present in this episode.
Will we see much of Cornholio in future episodes?
Most certainly. There's also a good chance
that he will make an appearance in the B&B movie. One other note: When asked if there would be any new characters
introduced on the show (on the AOL forum), Mike Judge responded with "Son of Cornholio." Interesting...
Okay, so Beavis can turn into "The Great Cornholio" when he pulls his shirt over his head. But what
about when Butt-Head does it?
Bogart: To hog something, not sharing it with anyone. Originally a reference to smoking marijuana and dangling
the joint in one's mouth, rather than passing it around. Derived from actor Humphrey Bogart, who always had a cigarette
dangling from his mouth (and eventually died of lung cancer because of it).
To date, Butt-Head has done this twice ("Generation in Crisis" and "Screamers"), while
Beavis has done it in a total of four episodes. The show's creators have yet to give an official name to the character
Butt-Head becomes, although I've seen several people on the net affectionately refer to him as "The Great Buttholio."
Bunghole: Your butt-hole. Where turds and stuff come from.
Choad: There seems to be some difference of opinion, but it is either a
euphemism for 'penis' or a reference to the area between the testicles and anus. In the
L.A. region, 'choad' is a surfer term for penis and the region between the testicles and
anus is called a 'grundle'. This makes sense, because if choad meant grundle, what
would a choad-smoker do?
Cut the Cheese: To fart. Break wind. Pass gas. Let one rip. Crack a rat. You
get the idea.
Homeowner: Butt-Head uses it in a few of the older episodes as a synonym for "homosexual" when he insults
Beavis. It is NOT meant to imply that the house in which they watch TV is Beavis' house.
Medieval: In a couple of the video clips, our boys use the term "getting medieval on your ass." All it means is
to go crazy and beat the hell out of someone. And no, it's NOT a reference to the film "Pulp Fiction." Although the
term was used in the movie, it existed long before it came out.
Pull My Finger: A game Beavis and Butt-Head play sometimes. One of them will ask the other to pull his finger,
then let loose a fart when he does. (See also: Cut the Cheese)
SBD: "Silent But Deadly." A really raunchy fart that makes
no noise, slipping out undetected by the unfortunate victim.
Spanking your Monkey: Masturbation. (Also "choking your chicken," "shining your helmet," and many others.)
Tazer: A stun gun, used to shock people and knock them out.
TP: Toilet paper. You know, that stuff you use to like, wipe your butt.
Woodrow: An erection. Other terms are "Morning Wood" (waking up in the morning
with an erection), "Stiffy", "It's high noon on my sundial", and "Our pencils are hard". When they are talking about
getting an erection, they say things like: "Pitching a
tent", "I'm getting a boner", and "I'm getting a stiffy!".
Q: Where were B&B first seen?
A: B&B made their first appearance at
"Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation". The 'Frog Baseball' episode
was shown at the fest, and MTV picked up on it and premiered it in March 1993 on "Liquid
Television". This episode was followed by another short, 'Peace, Love, and
Understanding'. Since then, they have been featured in their own half-hour program which
is ususally 2 fifteen minute episodes, although there have been a few full half-hour
Q: Are "Beavis" and "Butt-Head" their real names, or nicknames,
A: This is something that Mike Judge hasn't
revealed. Butt-Head has said before that his last name is "Head," so his first name
might be "Butt." (He's also mentioned that he has a cousin named Richard Head.) Then
again, this may only be a joke. Or perhaps no one remembers his real name, but they
call him Butt-Head because he's always thinking about butts. It's hard to tell without
knowledge of their family.
The name "Beavis" means "smelly hair," and is one of the few truly derogatory first
names a person can have. Again, this is only his first name, and the show doesn't give
enough information to figure out his last. And despite what you may have heard, Beavis'
first name is not, I repeat, NOT "Brian." The recent confusion over this issue stems
from Butt-Head saying "Settle down, Brian," while they are watching a video. But he's
not saying it to Beavis, he's saying it to Brian Setzer, the guy in the video. Hope
this clears things up.
Q: Do they have a job?
A: They are
employed at a fast food joint called "Burger World" when they remember to show up.
Basically, Burger World is just another place where they can screw around and cause
trouble. Note that the emblem for Burger World (a "W") is simply the emblem for
McDonald's (an "M") turned upside down.
Q: But they do go to school right?
A: They go to 'Highland High'. They are in the underachiever
class with most of the other rejects in the school.
Q: Where exactly do they live?
A: It has never been mentioned on the show or in print, but Ohio,
Texas, and New York have all been suggested by the fans. On October 25, 1994, Mike
Judge was on an on-line conference on America On-Line and was asked this very question.
His answer: "They live in a FICTIONAL town somewhere on the border of western Texas and
eastern New Mexico." The following evidence in the show supports this, although NO ONE
knows for sure exactly where they live:
New Mexico Evidence:
- Mike Judge lived and went to grade and high school in the city of Albuquerque.
- There is in fact a high school named 'Highland High' in Albuquerque.
- When walking along the street in "Madame Batavsky", the boys pass a car with Texas
- In "Trouble Urinating", when the boys are outside, there is a water tower in the
background. It looks just like the big ol' water towers in the suburbs surrounding
Dallas (esp. north of Dallas). In general, things look more like near-Dallas than
Albuquerque. ABQ has mountains and hills. Dallas is pretty much flat. B&B-land is
- In 'Tornado!', the boys deal with a tornado. Tornados are common in North Texas.
- It is also very possible that there is a 'Highland High' in North Dallas. There
is the upscale town of Highland Park, closer in to Dallas. Anyway, the word "Highland"
is all over the place in and around north Dallas.
- Mike Judge created the boys while living in/near Dallas.
- There is a "Highland Park High School" in Highland Park and a "Highland School" in
Irving. I don't know what the "Highland School" is, but Irving would be an appropriate
north Dallas suburb for the boys to be in...
And we'll say it again just in case you weren't really listening before -- it's a 100%
fictional, completely made-up city that is purely imaginary and doesn't really exist.
(Apologies to old-timers for this, but the discussion of places where they might live
has gone on long enough.)
Q: Is the house where they watch TV Beavis' or Butt-Head's?
A: Again, the show doesn't specifically say. Our personal guess
is that it's Butt-Head's house, since, in the episode "Kidnapped," he tells Stewart to
"get out of my house." On the other hand, in one of the video clips they watch, Beavis
says to Butt-Head, "This is scary. Can I sleep at your house tonight?" This seems to
suggest that it's Beavis' house. Or, on the third hand, it may not be either. There
aren't enough clues in the show to come to an absolute conclusion.
Q: So why don't we ever see their parents?
A: Their parents are one of the show's great mysteries, as there
never has been much said about them. If you take a look at their "family bush" in their book, "This Book Sucks," you'll
see that Beavis' mom looks a lot like Butt-Head, and Butt-Head's mom looks a lot like Beavis, so they obviously got mixed
up at the hospital where they were born. References to their parents in various episodes indicate that it's likely both
boys have the same father. Also, Beavis' mom is a road slut, but we don't know much about Butt-Head's mom yet. Even
Mike Judge hasn't said much about this ("They're the same place Charlie Brown's parents are."), so it's unlikely we'll
see their parents anytime soon.
Q: Why is there a disclaimer run before the show?
A: To cover MTV's ass from people who may try to sue them because
their dumbass kids did something stupid and they want to blame it on B&B. And this disclaimer is not just on the show,
it is on everything associated with B&B. It appears in the
books "This Books Sucks" and "Beavis and Butt-Head's Ensucklopedia", the CD "The Beavis
and Butt-Head Experience", and the B&B game cart for the Sega and SNES.
Q: What is the exact wording of the disclaimer?
A: In the first and second seasons the disclaimer was "Beavis and Butt-Head are not real. They
are stupid cartoon people completly made up by this Texas guy who we hardly even know. Beavis and Butt-Head are dumb,
crude, ugly, thoughtless, sexist
self-destructive fools. But for some reason the little wienerheads make us laugh." And
yes, the word completely was mispelled as 'completly'. In the third and following seasons the disclaimer changed to
"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". The
disclaimer was probably changed to make it even clearer that if your idiot kid does something stupid, it is not because
of the B&B show.
Q: What's the deal with 'fire'?
A: Beavis (and Butt-Head to some degree) has an obession with fire, lighters, and
explosions. In the first and second seasons, and part of the third, many episodes show him either yelling "Fire! Fire!" or stating that stuff needs to be burned. When the media reported that a 5 year old kid
burned down the family's mobile home with matches after watching BnB, MTV, ball-less wusses that they are, decided
to remove all references to 'fire' from the program, thus validating the media's claim. This is the reason why many
episodes are now banned or severely edited. There has been no official comment from MTV about this that I know of, they
just hacked up the show, and moved it to a later time slot. Mike Judge has also never commented about this, except to
say that BnB "has always been targeted as an adult show".
We've learned a little more about this situation since we first wrote this. Apparently this fire occured in Moraine,
Ohio, which is a suburb of Dayton. The fire was caused by a five-year old boy and his two-year old sister was killed in
the fire. It appears the mother smelled a good lawsuit and decided to push it. There are a couple of interesting points
in this situation:
There was never any information about a lawsuit. We can only assume someone convinced the mother of how incredibly
foolish such an effort would be in Ohio.
- The family did not have cable television.
- The mother left the five year old alone with his younger sister in the mobile home for more than a half-hour while
she socialized somewhere else in the trailer park.
- The fire was started with a BIC lighter which the mother had left on a coffee table.
Of course, the show has never been afraid of laughing at itself, and now the writers love to get as close as possible to
actually saying the word 'fire,' without actually doing it.
Q: Yeah, but didn't they kill a cat in one episode?
A: Nope. They did PAINT a cat's butt, but never killed one (although
frogs are a different story :-). The killing part came about when the boys were bored
and looking for something to do. Butthead suggested that they should stick a
firecracker in a cats butt and see what happened but they never actually did it. Well,
when two demented youths in California did kill a cat with a firecracker, the show was
blamed for the kids actions.
Q: What about other changes that have been made to episodes?
A: Anything depicting animal cruelty has either been edited or removed altogether. MTV was
pressured into doing this after being attacked by animal rights activists and reports of children being cruel to animals
after watching the show. In the case of other revisions, there's no explanation whatsoever for their removal. Examples
include the water dripping from Buzzcut's crotch in "Water Safety" and the telemarketers who once laughed at Beavis'
900-call in "Hard Sell." Go figure.
Q: What is this "Lake Titicaca" that Beavis keeps talking about?
A: Yes, Lake Titicaca is a real place. Specifically, it's located on the boundaries of southern
Peru and western Bolivia, in the Andes Mountains, in South America. Once you realize that the name contains the words
"tit" and "caca," it's easy to understand why Beavis has an obsession with it.
Q: Which of the two is smarter?
A: Mike Judge on the David Letterman show stated that Butt-Head is smarter, although no one can
deny the fact that Beavis has his occasional moments of brilliance. There is much speculation in the newsgroups that
Beavis may actually be a genius, yet remain eternally repressed by Butt-Head's demeaning remarks.
Q: What is cool?
A: Anything in or from Seattle, Washington is cool.
Q: What is the strongest BnB music video compliment?
A: A resounding and repeated, "Y E S S S ! ! !"
Q: What's the worse pan?
A: They stare at each other for a moment and wordlessly change
Q: Do they like ALL videos?
A: Nope. In the "early" days, they panned virtually everything, deservingly-so. Although in recent
episodes they tend to watch even bad videos longer than they used to. Is this because MTV doesn't want to piss off
record companies since B&B almost have the power to make or break a band (witness White Zombie), or does it just fill air
Q: So who is their favorite band?
Well, Butt-Head loves AC/DC of
course, and Beavis rocks when Metallica comes on,
but the consensus is that GWAR (which
stands for God What A Racket) is their all time favorite band. Every time they come on,
they both go into a fit, because everything about the video is cool. Also high on the
list is White Zombie, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails, and Ministry.
Q: How about their most hated band?
A: Tough to say, because there are so many. Probably on the bottom would be Grim Reaper, Culture
Club, and the "Super Suck Group" Color Me Badd. Only two
bands to date have been given the infamous "stare-and-wordlessly-change-the-channel" pan: Vanilla Ice and Milli Vanilli.
So one could argue that these two tie for B&B's most hated band.
Q: What makes a video cool?
A: If it has chicks (preferably half-naked or in sweaty t-shirts), fire, explosions, loud music,
blood, accidents, bugs, or toilets, it's pretty safe to assume that
the video is cool.
Q: Did a band ever kick Mike Judge's ass?
A: No. He once met a guy from the English band "Grim Reaper"
that BnB ripped, and the musician said he was a big BnB fan and would have lost all
respect for them if they had liked his video because it WAS really bad.
Q: So, like, who does the voices?
Mike Judge - Beavis and Butt-Head
Mr. Van Driessen
Adam Welch - Stewart
? - Cassandra
Many other minor voices are provided by the shows writers, and there have been a few celebrities who have provided voices
as well. These include:
Bob Goldthwait - As a bum in "Party" and "Beavis, Can You Spare a Dime?"
David Letterman - As himself in "Late Night With Butt-Head"
Tabitha Soren - As herself in "Citizen Butt-Head"
David Spade - Mr. Manners in "Manners Suck" and "Candy Sale"
Q: Who does the animation?
A: In the first and second seasons, Mike Judge did quite a bit of the animation (talented
guy!), but since the exploding popularity of the show, every season since has been drawn by a Korean animation company,
Rough Draft Studio, which is the same company that does "The Simpsons" and "The Maxx". This is why you may notice that
the animation is more 'clean' and 'clear' than it was in the first and second seasons. As far as we know, the way the
episode production process works is that the episode idea and some outline sketch cells are drawn up in New York by the
production team (including Judge), the cells are then sent to RDS where all the "fill-in" animation is done, i.e the
labor intensive part (wonder now why it is done in Korea?), the finished episode is then sent back to New York where some
touch-up work is done, the voices and videos are added in, and voila, an episode is born. We don't know how long each
episode takes from idea to finished product, but judging on the amount of episodes there have been, this is a
time-consuming process. Many people tend to like the 'crudeness' of the first and second season animation since it lived
up to the character of the show in general. Even Mike Judge was quoted as saying "It really was a shame I had to stop
drawing, I was getting really good at it."
Q: Is there a Beavis and Butt-Head movie in the works?
Yes. The movie is being produced by Viacom (MTV's parent) and David
Geffen, and will be released by Paramount Pictures. There was a heated
argument between Geffen and Mike Judge concerning whether to use live
actors or keep it animated. Geffen wanted live actors with David Spade
and Adam Sandler in the lead roles. Judge hated the idea saying that
"Everybody seemed to want to do it live-action. I think some of the
executives may not have known that the show was a cartoon." But money talks
in Hollywood, and animation, which is cheaper and more recognizable,
ultimately won out. The movie is budgeted at about $5 million.
As for the plot, there is no set idea as yet, Judge proposed "Crisis in
the Butt Zone", in which a rampaging virus makes everyone just like Beavis and
Butt-Head. But Geffen's people balked and the idea was shelved. Another idea
was "My Dinner With Butt-head", in which the pair sit and talk for an hour and
a half at the Burger World. "I mentioned that and everyone looked at me with
this nervous, constipated look," says Judge. "I started saying, 'Yeah, it
could be like, "Pass the mustard, Beavis." "You said turd."' I was just
