Although hardly works of Shakespeare; the cartoon adventures of these two juvenile, immature misfits are simplistic 'brain turned off' humour tales and work well for being just that, and not pretending to be anything but. ("Huh huh, huh huh, he said 'butt'")
Created and principally voiced by Mike Judge, the show started life with crude animation and even cruder humour, with the dastardly duo causing mayhem and destruction wherever they went; breaking things, burning things, stealing things, and not caring who or what they hurt in the process.
The series soon attracted a strong outcry of criticism, and as a result, the extreme elements of the show were toned down. Many of the existing earlier episodes were re-edited - mostly to remove the duo's love of 'Fire! Fire!", which Beavis had originally often cheerfully chanted. Several of the 'stronger' earlier episodes were even loosely 'banned'.
After being toned down, the pair were still mischievous and about as anti-social as can be, but they became generally more just two (very) misguided, moronic loosers, who's main aim in life is to 'be cool', become rich & famous (with a plethora of silly, doomed-from-the-start schemes), and - most importantly - to 'score with chicks'.
Although many fans - myself included - think that the toning down was a bit TOO much (just because it is a cartoon doesn't mean it is for children!Read more ›
The tape kicks off with early episode 'Burger World', in which the pair find a dead rat, and deep-fry it with a load of other gunk and serve it to Mr. Anderson. Being an early episode, the animation is rather 'sketchy'. However, this episode is (in my opinion) much better and much more re-watchable than some other rather 'hollow' early episodes.
The next episode, 'Customers Suck', has the duo trying to cope with... well, customers - something which is quite a hardship for them. There's more mis-use of the fryer; this time, Beavis fries a telephone. This episode does not even clock up 3 minutes running time, so I am almost certain it is cut down in some way; though I had not seen this particular episode before so aren't certain.
'The Butt-head Experience' sees Butt-head falling asleep at work and dreaming of himself and Beavis as rock stars (well, enthralling audiences by simply standing on stage and chanting rock riffs in their own incomparible, un-tuneful way). A rather limited, unmemorable episode. Déjà vu: the 'toad licking' scene at the end of this episode was previously used in the episode 'Sick' (later released as part of 'The History Of Beavis Part II') (Recycling of opening / closing scenes was fairly common on early episodes).
In 'Be All You Can Be', an Army recruitment officer tries to persuade the duo to sign up. Needless to say, he's got his work cut out for him, and soon regrets it! Again, one of the better early episodes.Read more ›
My favourite episode on this vid is couch fishing its just really funny you have to see what the two delinquents reel in on their fishing line the other episodes are just as good this is a must buy for beavis and butthead fans as their get in to the biggest trouble ever!
afer a few minutes of staring at a black screen, i switched on the power and was away.
beavis and butthead have been on mtv for yrs, and are, ofcourse, a huge classic. i love those little rogues.
but enough of me, let me tell you a bit about the episodes.
the first you lucky things will wittness is:
Butt-O-Ween BUNGHOLIO: Lord Of The Harvest
and it lives up to its name.
its halloween, its late, and beavis and butthead are watching tv and contemplating on why the killer didnt wait for the girl to 'score' with the guy in the car and get her top off before he killed her.
the door bell rings and this is when beavis and butthead discover trick or treating.
firstly they go to a few houses but get told to basicaly go away, because they are too old, and have no costumes.
to cure this problem, beavis dresses up as a nad, and butthead goes as natchos.
beavis eats too many candy bars, and after the dude chases them off shouting things out like 'get off my property you damn son of a b***h, he turns into sir corn holio .
Pipe of doom
they walk past a group of builders trying to score with girls, and realise that these builders have a way with the chicks.
'they should write a book' says butthead.
'yeah, volume 1, hunting and escaping.'
it all goes horribly wrong, however, when beavis gets stuck in a pipe.
wrestling ends, and theres nothing on tv for a whole hour, so beavis and butthead try killing time (hense the title, ooo clever) by sitting very still, fighting, and trying to throw up.
groovy.Read more ›
