The return of Beavis and Butthead on Paramount+ will come with a remastered version of 200 original shows from the unique MTV phenomenon.
However, for Guest rooms fans, even better news: the videos may be back.
DVD releases of the animated hit removed the show’s daily bread, with the two teenage dopes poking fun at the music videos, due to legal permission issues with the videos.
Beavis and Butthead Creator mike judges recount Collider he missed them too. “[A] a lot of the things I’m most proud of are comments on music videos,” he says.
“At first I was like, ‘Oh, people watch MTV because they want to watch the videos. They’re not going to want these guys talking about any of this stuff.’ What I was wrong about.”
Judge adds of the remastered shows: “…I hear different things. Apparently…maybe they could get it, so they’ll just play like they did originally with all the videos in them. Which is nice of what the pace was and what I liked about it. So hopefully I get that.
Obviously, since Paramount+ and MTV share a parent company in Paramount Media Networks, legal issues related to videos are more easily resolved.
The office space and Idiocracy veteran adds of the new shows, which debut August 4, “They’re now watching YouTube videos and TikTok videos, which has been a lot of fun to do.”
He adds, “We have episodes where they’re middle-aged. Butt-Head is just this big, useless old guy. They get all kinds of government handouts. They’re a burden on society, but it was a lot of fun. to do. And old Beavis and Butt-Head also watch music videos.”
