The animated series came roaring onto tv in 1993 and quickly became a cult classic, with video games and even a movie being produced from it. Just from the feature film Beavis and Butthead Do America, in 1996, it raked in $63 million domestically. What was it's budget? $12 million. Big money, especially for back then.

If you can't remember what the Beavis and Butthead show, we're about to refresh things for you. The show was about two friends, Beavis and Butthead, who are best described as slackers that cover important Gen X topics through humor. This time, the reboot will be focusing on Gen Z and the issues they're going through. Finally, a show that will help soothe our Gen Z souls.

Judge said in a statement, "It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again." And we couldn't be more on board with this statement. Comedy Central already had gone and ordered two seasons, saying the new Beavis and Butthead series will have "meta-themes relatable to both new and old fans - Gen X parents and their Gen Z kids." Maybe through the new show, it'll help unite the two generations together, showing the similarities, instead of the differences.

Chris McCarthy, president of Entertainment & Youth Group, said, "We are thrilled to be working with Mike Judge and the great team at 3 Arts again as we double down on Adult Animation at Comedy Central. "Beavis and ButtHead were a defining voice of a generation, and we can't wait to watch as they navigate the treacherous waters of a world light-years from their own." Can we get an amen?! Amen!

Judge will be writing, producing, and doing the voice work for both characters on the new show. Maybe you're unsure of who Judge is, well, don't feel threatened. The show is in good hands. Judge's other works also include HBO's Silicon Valley, Office Space, Idiocracy, and the beloved 90s show King of the Hill.

"It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again," Judge stated on Beavis and ButtHead's return. Is this guy single? He sounds like everyone's dream. We couldn't agree more. And as adult animation continues to grow, this is the best time to bring back an old classic, and attract a new generation. Without a doubt, Beavis and ButtHead's return will bring in millions upon millions of dollars. Franchises like Family Guy and Bob's Burgers are both worth billions. Plus, the beauty of animation is that it can continue to be produced during global pandemics, so matter what, there will always be a new episode of Beavis and ButtHead. The same cannot be said for the other hundreds of film and tv shows that were postponed until further notice.
