Beavis and Butt-Head made their triumphant return last year thanks to Paramount+. They had two major releases (huh…): Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe and a reboot series. That reboot series is getting a second season, and it arrives in April on a special holiday.

Paramount+ shared the teaser clip below announcing that the reboot’s second season will premiere on April 20 — aka: 4/20. The date has long been synonymous with cannabis enthusiasts. Appropriately, the teaser boasts, “This 4/20, we’ve got another reason not to leave the couch.”


The Beavis and Butt-Head renaissance has brought other topics related to the show to the forefront. One topic, in particular, is how the titular (huh…) characters pretty much ended the career of Winger.

In an interview on the In the Trenches podcast in January', former Winger guitarist Reb Beach was asked whether the duo factored into the group disbanding. He said it did. Beach added that shortly after Stuart was introduced on the show and wearing a Winger shirt, “In the weeks that followed, we had to cancel the tour because people wouldn’t be caught dead buying a ticket to a Winger show.”

Of course, there was a force before Beavis & Butt-Head that helped turn the tide against Winger: Metallica. The band famously featured Lars Ulrich in the video for “Nothing Else Matters” throwing darts at a Kip Winger poster. (The clip is also featured in the 1992 documentary A Year and A Half with Metallica.)

“Metallica didn’t help with showing in their biggest video they throw darts at a poster of Kip Winger,” said Beach. “They would show it at their live show, and my friend who went to see them said the entire arena laughed at that part of the video where Lars throws darts at Kip.”

5 Hilarious Beavis And Butt-Head Moments

March 8, 1993, quite frankly, the world changed. It is on that day that Mike Judge creations Beavis And Butt-Head graced the airwaves of MTV and soon thereafter became a pop culture phenomenon. (Fun fact: Their popularity led to them appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone three times.)

While we could provide a sprawling list of great moments, for the sake of you, the reader, here are five of our favorite hilarious Beavis And Butt-Head moments.

  • When They Bullied Stewart Into Finding Them Some Internet Porn

    Poor Stewart…he was just too weak to stand up to the pressures from Beavis and Butt-Head to find free porn on their high school’s library computer.

  • That Time They Were On Late Show With David Letterman

    Actually, they were on the Late Show so many times that a supercut of their appearances exists.

  • That Airplane Scene From Beavis and Butt-Head Do America

    The old lady who can’t wait to play the “slots,” Butt-Head falling in love with a flight attendant, and an appearance from The Great Cornholio makes this excerpt pretty perfect.

  • That Time They Presented An Oscar

    For real…this happened, and we’re sure Bruce Stambler was thrilled that his hard work in Sound Effects Editing was being presented by the likes of Beavis and Butt-Head. Nonetheless, it’s still pretty funny.

  • That Time They Hosted A Thanksgiving Special With Kurt Loder

    Kurt Loder, a legitimately serious journalist for MTV News, wasn’t even immune to getting involved with the music network’s biggest stars.   Clearly, he was a pretty good sport about it…even though he never scored.
