Mike Judge: ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ could return, but with a twist

Shut up Beavis.

The teenage dirtbags who were all the rage in the 1990s, Beavis and Butt-Head, may not have reached the end of their pop culture life just yet. But if they do come back, it could be in a different form than fans are used to.

In an interview with Radio Times, B&B and Silicon Valley creator Mike Judge explained that the trouble-making metal heads might be portrayed by real flesh-and-blood actors in their next iteration.

“Maybe it could be a live-action someday,” Judge told the publication. As for who would play the title roles, Judge wasn”t sure. But he did suggest that Beavis might be “homeless.”

Beavis and Butt-Head first aired as a series on MTV in 1993, quickly becoming a sensation. All told, there were nearly 200 episodes of the animated series between 1993-1997 with a brief re-boot in 2011. The devious duo hit the big screen in Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, which grossed an inflation-adjusted $95 million in 1996. It also spawned the long-running FOX series King of the Hill. Oh, and the lead characters went on to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine on two separate occasions.
