MTV and Paramount Home Video Ent. will be releasing BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD: THE MIKE JUDGE COLLECTION, VOLUME 1. The DVD box set is scheduled for release on Nov. 8, 2005. To help promote the set, Beavis & Butt-Head will return to MTV to present the Viewer's Choice Award at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 28.
"We're excited to work with Beavis and Butt-Head again," said Van Toffler, president, MTV Networks Music/Films/Logo Group. "But we really didn't have a choice. They were persistently calling me at work, at home, and on my cell. They wouldn't leave me alone until I agreed to take their call and help them."
"Uh, so we called up Toffler and asked him to put us back on MTV so we could score," said Butt-Head. "And he invited us to the VMAs and said we could put out a DVD of our stuff."
"Uh huh-huh-huh. Dumbass," said Beavis.
BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD was one of MTV's highest rated series ever. BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD DO AMERICA, their feature film released in December 1996, grossed more than $70 million, their DVDs sold more than 5 million units and the videogame series sold more than a million units.
