      Season 1 – Beavis and Butt-head

      1993 Comedy Animation List
      71% 7 Reviews Tomatometer 78% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score Beavis and Butt-head are, as one of the early preshow disclaimers read, "dumb, crude, ugly, thoughtless, sexist, self-destructive fools. But for some reason the (boys) make us laugh." During the show -- which had a five-year run beginning in 1993 and was resurrected by creator Mike Judge in 2011 -- the dim-witted duo watch music videos and provide their own running commentary on the clips, with plenty of childlike chortling along the way. A 21st-century return allows the still-high-school-age pals to unleash their snarky, immature comments upon both music and viral videos, pop-culture phenomenon such as Lady Gaga and even MTV properties "Jersey Shore" and "16 and Pregnant."

      Nathan Rabin AV Club The fearlessly minimalist animated smash is first and foremost a feral parody of its target demographic: It reduces the average MTV viewer to a semi-literate, almost sub-verbal mass of seething, barely controlled impulses. Sep 19, 2018 Full Review Drew Voros Variety Beavis and Butt-head starts out with a Led-Zeppelin-like bang and ends with a Debbie Gibson whimper. Feb 8, 2018 Full Review Jesse Hassenger PopMatters It is certainly vulgar, especially in terms of the duo's realistically limited teenage vocabulary, but the earliest episodes are by far coarser in both rough visuals and more disturbing content. Sep 20, 2018 Full Review Jeff Otto IGN Movies Basically, you're either a fan of Beavis and Butt-Head or you hate them. There's probably no winning over the haters at this point, but fans can rejoice at two of the greatest comic simpletons to ever cackle endlessly and pointlessly for our amusement. Rated: 8/10 Sep 19, 2018 Full Review Rafe Telsch CinemaBlend Most of the time what the two ended up doing wasn't anywhere close to cool, and the only women that came near them usually were trying to take advantage of the boys' stupidity, but damn if it wasn't fun to watch. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 19, 2018 Full Review Emily Ashby Common Sense Media The titular characters are pretty bad, but even worse is that their negativity doesn't really stand out from the rest of the cast, who with few exceptions fall into stereotypical channels of ineffective adults, silly girls, and slacker teens. Rated: 2/5 Sep 19, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      R B An "old-school" classic. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 10/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Iconic. Really ushered in the idea of adult cartoons. Episodes were too quick to really sink your teeth into. The movie is superior because it has time to breath. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Post a review
