Episode 04: You Got F**ked In The Ass !FREE!
The following is an episode list for the MTV animated television series Beavis and Butt-Head. The series has its roots in 1992 when Mike Judge created two animated shorts, Frog Baseball and Peace, Love and Understanding, which were aired on Liquid Television.
Episode 04: You Got F**ked in the Ass
The Liquid Television version of Frog Baseball added a new end title card featuring a still from the episode where Butt-Head hits Beavis with a baseball bat. A disclaimer states that no animals were harmed in the making of the episode, except Beavis.
Mr. Van Driessen gives the class the assignment to go door-to-door to collect for charity, and while collecting, Beavis and Butt-Head run into a scary donor: Mistress Cora Anthrax. This was the first episode of the series to air.
Censorship: This episode was first shown with Butt-Head moving a letter "F" very close to the "UCKER" on the sign at the drive-in entrance. In subsequent airings this scene was cut short before the "F" could get close.
This episode has never been released on home video in the United States and many countries due to its controversial content, including that of Beavis and Butt-Head swallowing condoms full of drugs. However it was released on VHS in the United Kingdom as part of the Too Dumb for TV compilation in 2000, featuring a selection of controversial and seldom aired episodes, but which still contained several minor edits.
Beavis and Butt-Head watch an episode of a television documentary called Great American Minds, which is about Benjamin Franklin. They see Franklin fly a kite with a key attached to it during a storm, so they do likewise. Their kite soon becomes stuck in a tree. The tree is struck by lightning, and falls on them. It is then struck again. The duo are admitted to the emergency department of a hospital. A representative of a media watchdog visits them in hospital, where she asks Butt-Head what he was watching on TV. She is interviewed on TV, where she says that the duo were watching rock music videos, and implies that was what encouraged them to fly the kite in a storm.
Extended episode; Halloween Special: The duo attempt trick-or-treating. They are unsuccessful due to being too old and not wearing costumes. They knock on Tom Anderson's front door, then sneak in when he is distracted by taking a phone call. Beavis devours his bowl of candy, then turns into Cornholio. Todd puts Butt-Head in the trunk of his car; Todd lets him out in a field and drives off. Beavis walks into a field and encounters a farmer who hangs Beavis on a hook attached to the inside of his barn. Beavis awakens on the hook. The farmer and Butt-Head open the barn doors and approach him. They each pick up a chainsaw, turn it on and move closer to him.
Beavis and Butt-Head watch an episode of talk show Hiraldo, in which the topic is dating services. The duo go to a video dating service, where they are greeted by an attractive woman to whom Beavis gives his name as Hiraldo. She is attracted to Beavis, but he fails to recognize that. The duo receive calls from women on the phone and at the door, but they fail to understand that they are members of the dating service, and reject them.
In this very special episode, Beavis and Butt-Head are walking along the street when an injured baby bird falls in front of them. Mr. Stevenson takes them to a vet, who tells the duo that it cannot survive. At home, Beavis takes some live worms out of his pants pocket, chews them and feeds them to the bird. Butt-Head launches it into the air; it flies for a few seconds, then falls to the ground.
Beavis screws an action figure into his hand and has to go the hospital. At the hospital, a cult sees him as the second coming of the Messiah after he transforms into his alter ego, The Great Cornholio. This is an extended episode.
The boys go on a field trip to a military base and wind up in the virtual pilot seats of drone planes on an Afghan mission, thinking that it is Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas with planes. This is an extended episode.
Starlight must play along with Homelander while the Boys figure some things out. So, she enters into a fake relationship with Homelander to appease him. The episode ends with #Homelight kissing each other while she clutches her fist behind her back. Truly a nightmare ending.
Most episodes integrate sequences where Beavis and Butt-Head watch music videos and offer commentary. They prefer videos with "explosions, loud guitars, screaming and death", and favor rock bands such as the Butthole Surfers, Corrosion of Conformity, and Metallica. Judge said he saw Beavis and Butt-Head as "pretty positive characters, generally speaking ... They usually think everything's pretty cool. Or, in one way or another, everything sucks." He said his perception of the characters changed over the years: "When I first started out with the first show, which was Frog Baseball, they were just two guys that I would definitely want to keep my distance from ... But, by the end of the series, I would think that two guys like that would at least be fun to sit and watch TV with."
On July 14, 2010, a spokesperson for MTV Networks informed a New York Post reporter that Mike Judge was creating a new Beavis and Butt-Head series, that Judge would reprise his voice-acting roles for the show, and that the animation would be hand-drawn. According to TMZ, MTV had not asked Tracy Grandstaff to reprise her role as Daria Morgendorffer. Later, in a Rolling Stone interview, Judge was asked if Daria was coming back, and he said: "No. There's sort of a cameo in one episode. That'll be a surprise."
As part of a promotional campaign for the new series, cinemas screening Jackass 3D opened the feature film with a 3-D Beavis and Butt-Head short subject. Months later, in a media presentation on February 2, 2011, MTV announced that the series would premiere in mid-2011. On July 21, 2011, Judge spoke and fielded questions on a panel at Comic-Con International. A preview of the episode "Holy Cornholio" was also shown. Judge told Rolling Stone that at least 24 episodes (12 half-hour programs) will definitely air.
On July 28, 2016, it was reported that VH1 Classic was to be rebranded as MTV Classic on August 1, 2016, on the 35th anniversary of the original MTV. With a focus on 1990s programming, Beavis and Butt-Head were a major part of this alongside Daria and Æon Flux at the launch; they were also a major focus in the promotion of the re-brand. MTV Classic only broadcast episodes from the 2011 reboot. However, it and all non-music video programming only lasted a few months before being pulled.
In February 2022, it was announced that the revival would instead premiere on Paramount+, following a second Beavis and Butt-Head feature film entitled Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe. Originally, Paramount executives wanted a live-action Beavis and Butt-Head movie. Judge held auditions over Zoom for the project. He eventually talked the company into doing an animated movie instead to reestablish the characters first, with a future live-action movie still a possibility. In June 2022, it was confirmed that new episodes would debut later that year, along with the full library of over 227 original episodes, newly remastered, with music videos intact. One month later, it was announced that the revival would premiere on August 4, 2022. Season 9 continues the concept of the Beavis and Butt-Head multiverse initially explored in Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe. Teenage Beavis and Butt-Head, Old Beavis and Butt-Head, and Smart Beavis and Butt-Head all get their own dedicated episodes in the revival.
The show was blamed for the death of two-year-old Jessica Matthews in Moraine, Ohio, in October 1993. The girl's five-year-old brother, Austin Messner, set fire to his mother's mobile home with a cigarette lighter, killing the two-year-old. The mother later claimed that her son watched an episode in which the characters said "fire was fun". However, the neighbors stated that the family did not even have cable television and would thus be unable to view the show.
When the series returned in 2011, MTV allowed Beavis to use the word "fire" once again uncensored. During the first video segment, "Werewolves of Highland", the first new episode of the revival, Beavis utters the word "fire" a total of seven times within 28 seconds, with Butt-Head saying it once as well.
In February 1994, watchdog group Morality in Media claimed that the death of eight-month-old Natalia Rivera, struck by a bowling ball thrown from an overpass onto a highway in Jersey City, New Jersey, near the Holland Tunnel by 18-year-old Calvin J. Settle, was partially inspired by Beavis and Butt-Head. The group said that Settle was influenced by the episode "Ball Breakers", in which Beavis and Butt-Head load a bowling ball with explosives and drop it from a rooftop. While Morality in Media claimed that the show inspired Settle's actions, the case's prosecutors did not. It was later revealed by both prosecutors and the defendant that Settle did not have cable TV, nor did he watch the show.
They were famously lambasted by Democratic South Carolina Senator Fritz Hollings as "Buffcoat and Beaver". This subsequently became a running gag on the show where adults mispronounced their names. For example, one character on the show, Tom Anderson, originally called them "Butthole" and "Joe" and believed the two to be of Asian ethnicity (describing them to the police as "Oriental"). In later episodes, Anderson uses the Hollings mispronunciation once and, on at least one occasion, refers to them as "Penis and Butt-Munch". President Clinton called them "Beavis and Bum-head" in "Citizen Butt-head", as well as in the movie, where an old lady (voiced by Cloris Leachman) consistently calls them "Travis" and "Bob-head". In "Incognito", when another student threatens to kill them, the duo uses this to their advantage, pretending to be exchange students named "Crevis and Bung-Head". The bully, seeing through the disguises, calls them "Beaver and Butt-Plug". In "Right On!", when the duo appear on the Gus Baker Show, host Gus Baker (a caricature of Rush Limbaugh) introduces them as "Beavis and Buffcoat". And in the original series finale, "Beavis and Butt-head Are Dead", a news reporter refers to the two boys as "Brevis and Head-Butt". In the Season 9 episode "Locked Out" Tom Anderson mistakes Beavis and Butthead for honest and responsible boys, and blames "Buford" and "Bernardo" for the alleged damage to the paint on his new truck, though Beavis and Butthead lied about the damage. 041b061a72
