‘Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head’ Sets Comedy Central Debut

From Mike Judge and MTV Entertainment Studios, the newest iteration of the iconic 1993 series airs February 8 following ‘South Park’s 26th season premiere.

It’s official… Comedy Central announced today that Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head will make its broadcast premiere February 8 at 10:30 PM ET/PT, right after the 26th season premiere of South Park.

The show, from Emmy Award-winning creator Mike Judge and MTV Entertainment Studios, premiered last August on Paramount+, following the streamer’s release of the critically acclaimed original film Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe. The platform also hosts the 1996 classic movie Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, as well as remastered versions of the classic series.

Launched in 1993, Beavis and Butt-Head quickly became a force in pop culture and started a television revolution with its satirical commentary on youth and adolescence. Centered around two teenage couch potatoes, “Beavis” and “Butt-Head,” the concept immediately became part of the vernacular. It was known for tackling social issues, including teen obesity, workers’ rights, and media trends.

Created and voiced by Judge, the characters of Beavis and Butt-Head originated in Judge’s 1992 short film Frog Baseball, which was broadcast by MTV’s animation showcase “Liquid Television.” After MTV commissioned an entire series around the characters, the show ran for seven seasons from March 1993 to November 1997. The series was revived in 2011 with an eighth season airing on MTV.

Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head is executive produced by Judge, Lew Morton, Michael Rotenberg, Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Ben Kalina, and Antonio Canobbio for Titmouse.
