In a recent conversation with the New York Times, Mike Judge (responsible for King Of The Hill and Beavis and Butt-Head) spoke to the idea of a live action Beavis and Butt-Head show. Prior to mentioning this concept, Judge starts off by talking about what it was like to do the voices for the titular characters again after so long.
“I hadn’t done those voices in many years, and I thought, oh, this still sounds like them. Maybe it will be fun to do again. Originally, it was just going to be a movie and possibly live-action, and then they said they wanted the series, too.”
He then goes on to elaborate and shares the following (regarding a live action show):
“Yeah, a live-action Beavis and Butt-Head for Paramount, the movie studio, which still could happen. At one point, there was an idea that was Beavis and Butt-Head are animated in a live-action world. We went down that road for a little bit. And we had a casting session, like two years ago, for just doing like teenage Beavis and Butt-Head. Didn’t go as well as I had hoped.”
Would you be down to see a live action Beavis and Butt-Head show? The new animated Beavis and Butt-Head show will be available on Paramount+ come August 4th. Recently, a nine minute preview came out that features the hilarious nature of this show (you can check out said preview by following this link here).
If you haven’t checked it out yet, we also recommend watching the new Beavis and Butt-Head movie! We actually reviewed the film, and while it does have some issues, we personally found it to be an overall blast! Below we have included an excerpt of our review (but you can find the link to the full review below).
“For years we have been enduring a constant cycle of reboots and remakes, with a plethora of works making sure to ‘wink at the audience’ and clue them in on the revamped nostalgia they are taking in. The self-aware nature of modern Hollywood movies has become tiresome, but thankfully, Beavis and Butt-Head: Do The Universe avoids such irksome presentation. It very much embraces and expresses what Beavis and Butt-Head were in the ’90s (for better and worse).”
