The return of Beavis and Butthead is imminent. We have long awaited the second coming of our favorite dynamic duo. And finally our patience will be kindly rewarded thanks to Mike Judge!
The panel at Comic Con in room 6A brought a room full of eager guests to happy tears as Mike Judge presented new footage of the upcoming reincarnation of Beavis and Butthead. A discussion moderated by none other than MTV Jackass’ own Johnny Knoxville brought to light how the cartoon came to be through Liquid Television and somehow came full circle to it’s new place in the spotlight today.

Judge explained that the clips would showcase Beavis and Butthead mocking clips of Jersey Shore, 16 and Pregnant, Twilight, and even internet videos. The mere mention of the duo instigating rants against Twilight and Jersey Shore brought the crowd to a thunderous applause.
The clips that followed showcased “B and B” watching Twilight and then attempting to become werewolves by asking a bum to bite them so that they may become sexy like Taylor Lautner. This of course leads to the pair being sick with Hepatitus B which they think is their werewolf transformation. More clips followed with Jersey Shore and 16 and Pregnant clips which were appropriately mocked with the usual “B and B” remarks. The video lasted about fifteen minutes and had the entire room cheering. When it had ended Knoxville exclaimed, ”I didn’t want that to end.”
Judge and Knoxville ended the panel with their beers in hand. Judge thanked the room and told them all that he was excited to bring Beavis and Butthead back to MTV.
