Nostalgia is coming in waves nowadays and Beavis And Butt-Head are no exception to that! The cult classic animated show is making a return this year, along with a brand-new movie. The film is titled, Beavis And Butt-Head Do the Universe, and will arrive on the streaming service Paramount+ (as reported by Deadline). Fans will also be happy to know that the full library of over 200 remastered episodes will be available to watch via Paramount+.

If you somehow have never heard of Beavis And Butt-Head, the show follows the titular teens, who are apathetic, crass dudes who love to cause mischief. Each episode involves some random slice of life situation of theirs, which may involve getting into trouble or trying to catch the latest music videos.

Part of the charm to the show is how the titular teens provide goofy commentary to songs and their accompanying music videos; while this approach allows for great doses of laugh out loud moments, it also worked to potentially introduce audiences to new music at the time. An example is when Beavis and Butt-Head check out Korn’s “Blind”:

There’s also the time the duo told Lars Ulrich of Metallica to “sit your ass down” during the band’s performance of “For Whom The Bell Tolls”:

The return of Beavis and Butt-Head is a welcomed one! While there is no shortage of adult animation in the world today, there does appear to be a lack of heavy metal related animation. We miss the likes of Metalocalypse and even Mr. Pickles and all his cuddly demonic glory. Perhaps if the new movie blows up, that’ll trigger something in some producer’s head, sending out the call for more animation that embodies the spirit of heavy metal.

Are you a long-time fan of the cult TV show? Are you looking forward to the new movie and being able to re-watch the show in all its remastered glory? Let us know in the comments!

Beavis And Butt-Head Do the Universe marks the second movie for the metalhead duo, with their last big feature being that of 1996’s Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.
