BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD REVIEWED
“Beavis and Butt-Head” is one of the greatest shows of the 1990s. What once began as a series of Mike Judge shorts on “Liquid Television” birthed the most forward-looking series of all-time. While it became fun after “Idiocracy” to poke fun at the dumbing down of the Western World, that is missing something. Ignorance isn’t the key, but the willingness to embrace it as a lifestyle. People like Beavis and Butt-Head didn’t make themselves. Culture, parenting and community helped create things like Cornholio.
In between the two shorts that populate an episode, we get the guys observing current and classic music videos. Their later return to MTV featured the guys poking fun at MTV original programming. That changed annoyed many traditional fans, but it rings true. Tradition doesn’t exist for the dumb. Beavis and Butt-Head are wild moving chaotic tangents that exist to upset the status quo. Whether it’s their cross country odyssey in their feature film or their ability to destroy their neighborhood on the show, the duo exists to upset what you know and love.
While I would love to see an HD version of the series and film, I’d be happy just to stick with the DVD collection in one budget priced collection. Paramount really keeps an eye on the Collector market and I love that everything is now compressed into a tight bundle package. The special features and A/V Quality remains the same. If you haven’t picked it up before, I’d recommend a purchase.
