Press Release from MTV
SANTA MONICA, CA (OCTOBER 24, 2011) – MTV is launching an all-new animated comedy block this Thursday, October 27, with the premieres of Mike Judge’s “Beavis and Butt-Head” at 10:00 p.m., followed by new series from creator David Gordon Green, “Good Vibes” at 10:30 p.m., featuring the voice talent of Adam Brody, Josh Gad, Danny McBride and Debi Mazar, among others.
In 1993, Mike Judge, creator of “Beavis and Butt-Head,” and MTV knocked their heads together and launched a cartoon series starring a couple of lunkheads, and unwittingly started an animated pop culture revolution. Almost as soon as the world’s most famous slacker teenagers wearing heavy-metal T-shirts reared their heads, they became self-appointed arbiters of “cool.” But, for the most part, Beavis and Butt-Head spent their time just sitting on a couch making fun of what they watched on television.
Now, the boys who created a cultural dialogue for an entire generation, “Beavis and Butt-Head,” are coming back to MTV on Thursday, October 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. They make their triumphant return to unleash their hilarious and biting commentary on today's society, music and pop culture. Commenting on everything from music videos, reality TV shows like “Jersey Shore,” movies, mixed martial arts, viral videos and more, Beavis and Butt-Head are returning to your television screen, giving familiar fans and a whole new audience the chance to laugh at America's favorite animated dim-witted duo.
“Good Vibes,” a half-hour animated coming-of-age comedy premiering on MTV on Thursday, October 27 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, follows transplanted Jersey boy Mondo (voiced by Josh Gad, “The Book of Mormon”) and his best bud Woodie (voiced by Adam Brody, “The O.C.”), as they surf the biggest waves, hit the wildest parties and chase the prettiest girls in Play Del Toro - a colorful California beach community.
The all-star ensemble cast also features Debi Mazar (“Entourage”) as ‘Babs’ Mondo’s mom; Alan Tudyk (“Suburgatory,” “Serenity”) as ‘Lonnie,’ a burnt-out but wise beach bum; Danny McBride (“Eastbound & Down”) as ‘Ms. Teets,’ a massively overweight and inappropriate human sexuality teacher; Olivia Thirlby (“Bored to Death”) as ‘Jeena,’ the beautiful girl of Mondo’s dreams; Jake Busey (“Starship Troopers,” “The Good Guys”) as ‘Turk,’ an obnoxious local surfer and bully; and Tony Hale (“Arrested Development) as ‘Wadska,’ a charmingly nerdy and delusional friend.
Check out the full first episode sneak peek on MTV.com, which will be available until Tuesday, October 25: http://on.mtv.com/r9502i.
“Good Vibes” was created by David Gordon Green (“Pineapple Express,” “Your Highness”) and is animated by Six Point Harness. Along with Green, executive producers are Tom Brady ("The Simpsons”), Tom Werner (“Roseanne,” “That 70’s Show”), Mike Clements (“Life and Times of Tim,” “Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea”) and Brad Ableson (“The Simpsons”).
