Set the DVRs, boys and girls. “Beavis and Butt-head” make their big comeback at 9 tonight on MTV.
The show’s been off the air for 14 years and creatorMike Judge
, who also gave the world “King of the Hill,” answers the question we all want answered: Why?
“You know, I don’t know,” says Judge. “For me it started with (MTV Networks President)Van Toffler
calling and saying he wanted to bring the show back, which he had wanted to do before. They do market research occasionally, and they’ll find that there’s a high awareness and a lot of people still like it. So I don’t know if there’s any specific thing other than the usual research that they do.”
The show’s got a new name, too: “Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head.”
“When (MTV) bought the characters, they said it’s going to be called “MTV’s Beavis and Butt-Head,” and I just thought: ‘Really? You got to rub it in like that?’” says Judge. “So anyway, my manager a while back, when he was going over what I would want if I were to do another movie (following the successful 1996 “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America”), said, “Do you want them to call it ‘Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head’?” And I said, “Yeah, sure, ask for that.”Lindsay: Stripped down
