The series has a number of recurring elements. The following is a list of characters appearing occasionally on the MTV Cartoon series Beavis and Butt-head, each with a description
One of the most well-known aspects of the series was the inclusion of music videos, which occurred between animated segments. The duo would watch and make humorous observations (about the band, a song's lyrics, and/or a video's visuals), or simply engage in nonsensical dialogs. Mike Judge improvised the video comments, and they were never scripted. Almost all the animations of Beavis and Butt-Head during the videos were re-used from earlier episodes. 
At times, the criticism reflected their young age and ignorance of music history. Upon seeing a video by Black Sabbath, they decided that the band's vocalist couldn't be John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne, because "Ozzy's an old fart!" Butt-head mistook their raw sound for grunge and inquired if they were from Seattle; Beavis replied "No, they're American," even though Seattle is located in Washington, one of the United States, and Black Sabbath's members were from England. Black Sabbath are an John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne (born December 3 1948) is a British singer England is a Country which is part of the United Kingdom. Its inhabitants account for more than 83% of the total UK population whilst its mainland During one episode, Butt-head remarked, "You know those asswipes The Beatles? Those guys ruined music. The Beatles were a pop and rock band from Liverpool, England formed in 1960 " Similarly, the pair described Paul Simon as "that old dude from Africa who used to be in the Beatles. Paul Frederic Simon (born October 13 1941 is an American Songwriter, Musician, and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. " However, at other times they seemed almost respectful and willing to learn about music. A Led Zeppelin video was dismissed with the remark, "This sounds like folk music. Led Zeppelin were Folk music can have a number of different meanings including Traditional music: The original meaning of the term "folk music" was synonymous " "Yeah," came the reply, "but it gets cool later. "
When confronted with a song/video they didn't like, they usually watched it anyway, commenting on how bad it was. However, if they couldn't stand it, their solution was to change the channel.
They showed a particular disdain for many generic 1980's hair bands (with the exception of Guns N' Roses, Mötley Crüe, Van Halen and to a lesser extent, Aerosmith). Glam metal (also known as pop metal) is a sub-genre of Heavy metal music that arose in the late 1970s and early 1980s in the United States.

They had no tolerance for new wave or electronic music (except for industrial music, and Devo's "Whip It"). New Wave is a Rock music genre that existed during the late 1970s and the 1980s Electronic music is music that employs Electronic musical instruments and Electronic Music technology in its production Industrial music is a loose term for a number of different styles of Experimental music, especially but not necessarily Electronic music.

Nu metal bands such as Korn were also criticized for lacking originality (although this was only by Beavis when he was in a state of dizziness). Nu metal (sometimes named new metal or nü metal) is a musical genre that emerged in the mid 1990s which fuses influences from grunge and Alternative Korn, occasionally typeset as KoЯn or KoRn, is an American Nu metal band from Bakersfield California, and is often credited with popularizing
Bands who received considerably large amounts of criticism during the tenure of the show included Poison and Grim Reaper. Poison is an American Hard rock band that achieved great success and popularity in the late 1980s and early 1990s Grim Reaper are a British heavy metal band from the NWOBHM era
Beavis and Butt-head had especially severe reactions when confronted with videos they found particularly awful. As soon as Butt-head realized he was watching a Michael Bolton video, he announced that he had soiled his pants. Michael Bolton (born Michael Bolotin on February 26, 1953) is an American Singer-songwriter, best known for his Soft rock Fecal incontinence is the loss of regular control of the Bowels. The famous pianist Yanni also earned a very harsh critique from the boys. Yanni (born Yiannis Hrysomallis (Γιάννης Χρυσομάλλης classical transcription Giannis Chrysomallis) on November 14, 1954 in Sometimes, while giving a harsh review for a video, the duo gives a review to another band or musician despite the video not belonging to them in the first place; this was the fate for Ace of Base while the boys were watching "Here We Go" by Stakka Bo. Ace of Base is a pop band from Gothenburg, Sweden, comprising Ulf Ekberg (Buddha and siblings Jonas Berggren (Joker and Johan Renck (born October 5, 1966) is a Swedish musician (under the Stage name Stakka Bo) Music video director, and now When confronted with Milli Vanilli's "Baby Don't Forget my Number," and Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" the pair looked at one another in horror and without speaking a word changed the channel.

The Europeans's video for "We Are Animals" was the most critically trashed by the duo, as Butt-head claimed, "This sucks more than anything I have ever seen. This page is about the rock group For other entries on The Europeans, see The Europeans (disambiguation. " Another video that could make this claim was King Diamond's "The Family Ghost," in which Butt-head claimed, "This could be the worst crap I've ever seen in my life. King Diamond (born Kim Bendix Petersen, June 14, 1956, Copenhagen, Denmark) is a Grammy Award nominated heavy "
Even bands they liked were not spared. They were disappointed by an AC/DC video despite being fans of the group. Also, during a Metallica video, Butt-head comments, telling Lars Ulrich, "Sit down, Lars, and drum like you're supposed to!" Judas Priest's video for "Breaking The Law" also drew a negative reaction, despite the fact that Beavis and Butt-head sang the song itself numerous times throughout the series. Lars Ulrich (born December 26 1963) is a Danish Drummer best known as the co-founder of the American heavy metal Judas Priest are an English heavy metal band formed in 1970 in Birmingham.
Beavis and Butt-head also shared a disdainful dislike of many bands from England, even dismissing legendary rock bands just upon their birthplace; Butt-head once asked, "You know those asswipes, The Beatles? They ruined music. The Beatles were a pop and rock band from Liverpool, England formed in 1960 " While watching a Pink Floyd video, he claimed that they were "Just another bunch of wussies from England. Pink Floyd are " Other bands, such as The Shamen and Blur, were mocked for their British accents. The Shamen were an experimental Electronic music band initially formed in Aberdeen, Scotland by Colin Angus (b Blur are an English Alternative rock band that formed in London in 1989
Beavis and Butt-head rarely expressed complete enjoyment about any video; but a few bands did draw more favorable attention from the two than others. Their preference was death metal and heavy metal. They also had a deep admiration for Ozzy Osbourne and sang the Iron Man tune when they were excited about something or to celebrate. John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne (born December 3 1948) is a British singer Iron Man is a Fictional character that appears in Comic books published by Marvel Comics. They also liked funk, rock and rap. Nirvana's Kurt Cobain is said to have been ecstatic at having the video for "Heart Shaped Box" praised by Beavis and Butt-head, and deemed it a great compliment. Nirvana was an American rock band that was formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen Washington. Kurt Donald Cobain (February 20 1967 – c April 5 1994 was an American musician who served as lead singer, Guitarist, and songwriter for the Seattle " Heart-Shaped Box " is a song by the American grunge band Nirvana, written by Kurt Cobain. Indeed, even when drummer Dave Grohl's next band, Foo Fighters, was reviewed (the song was I'll Stick Around), the two were positive about the song because Grohl "was the drummer from that band, Nirvana.

The video which the duo declared to be officially the "best ever" was Ministry's Just One Fix. Ministry was an American Industrial metal band founded by Frontman Al Jourgensen in 1981 The crass uber-metal video, The Damned by Wendy O Williams and The Plasmatics received obvious praise from the duo since it featured all the themes of their interest (loud metal music, a semi-naked woman, destruction and explosions).

Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr (born October 20 1971 His mother nicknamed him " Snoopy " as a child because of the way he dressed and because of his love of Run-DMC was a pioneering hip hop group during the 1980s founded by Joseph "[The Reverend] Run" Simmons, Darryl "D Sir Mix-a-Lot or Sir Mixalot (born Anthony Ray, August 12, 1963) is a Grammy Award -winning rapper and producer Andre Romelle Young (born February 18 1965 primarily known by his stage name Dr This can be noted with Beavis's occasional mimicking of "gangsta" jargon ("We jus' kickin' it. . . in tha hang-outs," "Imma straight "G"," "Droppin' plates on yo ass, beotch"). Beavis even went as far as to say, "You know when Coolio says, 'I can see myself in the pistol smoke?' He stole that from Snoop Dogg!"
Funk music was likely another genre they liked. Funk is an American musical style that originated in the mid- to late-1960s when African American musicians blended Soul music, Soul They were seen dancing to various funk songs, and especially liked some bands that incorporated elements of funk into their music.
Although Beavis and Butt-head share the same musical tastes, there were some rare occasions where opinions largely conflicted. An obvious example can be seen during the video review for Something for the Pain by Bon Jovi (a musician whom the duo refer to as a "wuss band") in which Beavis claimed to enjoy the song causing Butt-head to smack him repeatedly, claiming to do it for "Beavis' own good. " Something for the Pain " is a single that was 8 in UK from Bon Jovi's 1995 album These Days. Bon Jovi is an American Hard rock band from Sayreville New Jersey. " However, Beavis insisted on enjoying the song and singing along to the main lyrics, and eventually retaliated against Butt-head by kicking him in the testicles--twice!--and praising Bon Jovi by spitting, "Damn it, Butt-head, Bon Jovi rules! I like this song, so blow your ass, damn it!" A less dramatic example can be seen during R.E.M.'s video for Shiny Happy People, where Beavis sings along to the lyrics provoking another repeated smacking by Butt-head. REM is an American rock band formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1980 by Michael Stipe ( lead vocals) Peter Buck ( Guitar Also, during the video for Rush's Stick it Out, Beavis seemed to like them, even going so far as sing a bit of The Spirit of Radio, but Butt-head dismissed guitarist Alex Lifeson as a wuss. Rush is a Canadian rock band originally formed in August 1968 in the Willowdale neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, currently comprised of " The Spirit of Radio " is a song released in 1980 by Canadian rock band Rush from their album Permanent Waves. Alex Lifeson, OC (born Aleksandar Živojinović on August 27 1953 in Fernie, British Columbia) is a Canadian Musician In another episode, during the review for Metallica's For Whom the Bell Tolls, Butt-head repeatedly claims that Metallica sucks, much to Beavis's annoyance. " For Whom the Bell Tolls " is a song by Metallica, the third track from their second album Ride the Lightning. However, in an earlier review, Butt-head shares Beavis's love of Metallica. This can imply that by the time they were watching the former, Butt-head had either grown to dislike the band, or was just criticizing them to annoy Beavis.
The duo also had a liking of vocalist Mike Patton and his band Faith No More. Michael Allan Patton (born January 27 1968) is an American singer Songwriter, Composer, multi-instrumentalist and Video Faith No More was an American Alternative metal band that formed in San Francisco, California from 1982 to 1998 It can be assumed that the pair may have attempted to give some videos the ultimate compliment. The ultimate compliment would likely have been parallel to the ultimate put-down (see previous) and would have consisted of them simply being silent for the video's duration. An example of this is where they were watching California by Wax, which featured a man running around on fire. Wax was a San Jose California Punkrock band consisting of Joe Sib (vocals Tom "Soda" Gardocki (guitar Dave Georgeff (bass and Loomis Butt-head praised the video, but Beavis, being a pyromaniac (and having been instructed by the MTV higher-ups to not say the word "fire"), chose to stare at the video and say nothing. Butt-head got annoyed by this, and tried to snap Beavis out of his seemingly catatonic state. Another example was the Ramones's I Wanna Be Sedated, where they did not praise the band verbally other than Beavis saying "YES!" when the video starts, but headbanged for the video's duration (along with occasionally humming the main riff). In other reviews, during particularly good videos, Butt-head has told Beavis to shut up because he wanted to see the video.
The duo would occasionally engage in physical humor during the videos. These antics ranged from simple comic violence, such as slapping, punching, and kicking one another, to the duo's memorable dances, which ranged from a few simple arm motions, to the dances listed below. Other antics included Butt-head masturbating, a card game, the pair sleeping, and Beavis getting seizures. A particularly memorable moment of their famous dance sessions can be seen during the viewing of the video for Step Down by the hardcore punk group Sick of it All, where the names of Beavis and Butt-head's dance moves are named on the screen in a blatant parody of the video itself. Hardcore punk (now usually referred to as simply hardcore) is a subgenre of Punk rock that originated in North America in the late 1970s Sick of It All ( SOIA) is a New York hardcore band formed by brothers Lou Koller (vocals and Pete Koller ( Guitar) Armand The dance moves included:
As well as dancing, they also sang during some music video reviews. This ranged from imitating the instrumentation, singing along with the lyrics, or even mocking the singing style of some singers (Butt-head particularly liked to imitate death metal vocalists). If they weren't familiar with some songs, but they knew the band, they would sing one of their more famous songs (one occasion involving Beavis noticing that they were watching a Primus video and sang a part of "My Name Is Mud"). My Name is Mud is a popular song by alternative rock/metal band Primus and is the first single from the 1993 album Pork Soda. If they weren't familiar with the song or band at all, they would sing something that sounded similar to the song. One instance is when a video for a song called "F-Sharp" by Nudeswirl came on, and Beavis started singing "Paradise City". " Paradise City " is a song written by the Hard rock band Guns N' Roses.
They showed some sign of intelligence when it came to some bands and artists, despite the fact that they didn't know much about even their favourite bands. On one occasion, they claimed that "Pantera" had an abusive upbringing, but they meant lead singer Phil Anselmo, not the whole band. Philip Hansen "Phil" Anselmo (born June 30, 1968 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is an American Musician who is best They knew practically nothing about the band Hole, and thought that Hole was the name of the lead singer. Hole was an American Alternative rock band that formed in Los Angeles in 1989 and disbanded in 2002 Courtney Michelle Love (born Courtney Michelle Harrison on July 9 1964 is an American Rock musician and Golden Globe-nominated actress However, they could recognize James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich from Metallica, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bono and The Edge from U2 (although they referred to Bono as "Boner") and Axl Rose from Guns N' Roses. James Alan Hetfield (born August 3, 1963, in Downey California) is the main Songwriter, co-founder vocalist and Rhythm guitarist Lars Ulrich (born December 26 1963) is a Danish Drummer best known as the co-founder of the American heavy metal Michael Peter Balzary (born October 16 1962 more commonly known by the Stage name Flea, is an Australian-born American Bassist, Trumpet player Red Hot Chili Peppers are David Howell Evans (born 8 August 1961 in Barking, East London) more widely known by his Moniker The Edge, is a Musician known best W Axl Rose (born William Bruce Rose Jr; February 6 1962 frequently called Axl Rose, is an American Musician, best known as the Frontman During a Foo Fighters video review, Butt-head recognizes the lead singer as Dave Grohl, referring him to "that dude from Nirvana. " Beavis thought Butt-head was referring to deceased Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and pointed out, "He's no longer with us. "
Sometimes they mistook some bands for others. They believed they were watching a Red Hot Chili Peppers video when they were really watching a Faith No More video (though this is probably a jab at Chili Peppers' frontman Anthony Kiedis accusing Mike Patton of ripping his style off). Anthony Kiedis (kiːdɪs "kee-dis" (born November 1 1962 is an American musician and the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In another review, they were watching a video by a band called Sausage (a side project of Primus' Les Claypool). Leslie Edward "Les" Claypool (born September 29, 1963 in Richmond, California, U Beavis thought this band was actually Primus (ironically, he was close to correct, since Sausage comprised of the original members of Primus), while Butt-head believed they were a fictional band called the Seminiferous Tubloidial Buttnoids. Seminiferous tubules are located in the Testicles and are the specific location of Meiosis, and the subsequent creation of gametes, namely Spermatozoa
There were times where the critiques about the videos were quite minimal, or even nonexistent. Some videos were only praised or criticized once, usually at the start, and then they would start engaging in conversation related to something in the video. Some videos didn't even get any critiques at all, be it positive or negative. It can actually be assumed that they deliberately ignored some videos, citing Butt-head's comment during a Ween video ("Quit talking about this video and do something funny!") and some reviews where they played a card game, slept, or even left the room instead of watching the video. Ween is an Alternative rock group formed in 1984 in New Hope Pennsylvania when Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo met in an eighth grade typing class
On several occasions, the two mistook bandmates for other celebrities, such as The Clash guitarist Mick Jones as Jerry Seinfeld, a member of Japanese pop band Pizzicato Five as Ernie from "My Three Sons" and Yanni as Geraldo Rivera. For the debut album by The Clash see The Clash (album The Clash were Michael Geoffrey "Mick" Jones (born 26 June 1955 was the lead Guitarist and a vocalist of the British Punk rock band The Jerome Allen "Jerry" Seinfeld (born on April 29 1954 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American comedian actor and writer Pizzicato Five (often known simply by the initials P5 is a Japanese pop group best known to audiences in the West in their later incarnation as a duo My Three Sons is a Situation comedy about a Scots/Irish-American family (Douglas/ O'Casey that ran from September 29, 1960, to August Yanni (born Yiannis Hrysomallis (Γιάννης Χρυσομάλλης classical transcription Giannis Chrysomallis) on November 14, 1954 in They would also sometimes unintentionally state crude puns on the names of celebrities (them believing the names they were saying were actually the celebrities' names) who came to mind during a video they were watching; some of these included Connie Chung as Connie Schlong, Bette Midler as Butt Midler and Monica Seles as Monica Phallus. Constance Yu-Hwa "Connie" Chung Povich ( born August 20, 1946) is an American journalist who has been an anchor and reporter Bette Midler (born December 1, 1945) is anAmerican Singer, Actress and Comedian, also known (as her informal stage name as Monica Seles (Szeles Mónika Serbian: Моника Селеш Monika Seleš, /sɛlɛʃ/ born December 2 1973 is a former World No The word phallus can refer to an erect Penis, or to an object shaped like a penis They even mistook Rosie O'Donnell, in the video "The Bedrock Twist" from the B-52s, for Roseanne and called her Buttseanne. Roseann "Rosie" O'Donnell
Over its run, Beavis and Butt-head drew a notable amount of both positive and negative reactions from the public with its combination of lewd humor and implied criticism of society. It became the focus of criticism from social conservatives, such as Michael Medved, while others, such as David Letterman, and the magazine National Review, defended it as a cleverly subversive vehicle for social criticism and a particularly creative and intelligent comedy. Michael Medved (born October 3 1948) is an American radio host, conservative political commentator, Film critic David Michael Letterman (born April 12, 1947) is an American late-night Talk show host and Comedian and the host since 1993 National Review ( NR) is a biweekly Magazine and Web site, founded by the late author William F Either way, the show captured the imaginations of many young television viewers in the United States and abroad and is often considered a classic piece of 1990s youth culture and the MTV generation.

Gay rights groups accused the show of promoting homophobia: the two characters would often make fun of music videos that featured effeminate or androgynous performers and the thought of anything same-sex (male) related seemed to horrify the duo.

Early episodes gave them a juvenile obsession with fire and dangerous behavior (summed up with Beavis' chant of "Fire! Fire!"). The show was blamed for a child's death which occurred in West Carrollton, Ohio in October 1993 in which a five year old boy set fire to his mother's mobile home killing his two year old sister. West Carrollton is a city in Montgomery County, Ohio, United States. The child's family blamed the show even though it was clear that they did not even have a cable TV subscription, which sparked the wrath of media watchdog groups. As a result, the references were excised from further broadcastings, being replaced by silly stunts, bad pick-up lines, etc. The creators took delight in sometimes making Beavis scream things that sounded very similar to his previous "Fire! Fire!", such as "Fryer! Fryer!" (when he and Butt-head are working late shift at Burger World). References to fire were cut from earlier episodes - even the original tapes were altered permanently.  Other episodes MTV opted not to rerun (Examples include "Stewart's House" and "Way Down Mexico Way"). The following is an episode list for the MTV Animated television series Beavis and Butt-head. Early episodes with the controversial content intact are rare, and are traded on homemade tapes made from the original broadcasts. In an interview included with the recent Mike Judge Collection DVD set, Judge denied being certain if some of the earlier episodes still existed in their uncensored form.
One could interpret some future jokes within the show as jabs about the controversy, despite the fact that their pyromania had already been an established character trait.
In February 1994, watchdog group "Morality in Media" blamed the death of an 8-month-old girl struck by a bowling ball thrown from an overpass onto a Jersey City, New Jersey highway near the Holland Tunnel on the episode "Ball Breakers", in which Beavis and Butt-head loaded a bowling ball with explosives and dropped it from a rooftop.

The first official home video releases of Beavis and Butt-head were two VHS tapes entitled There Goes The Neighborhood and Work Sucks!, distributed by Sony Music Video and MTV Home Video in 1994. Home video is a blanket term used for pre-recorded media that is either sold or hired for home entertainment is a multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Minato Tokyo, Japan, and one of the world's largest Media conglomerates with Each tape contained approximately eight episodes, each selected from the first four seasons. Although most of the episodes were presented complete (but without music video segments), a handful of episodes from Seasons 2 and 3 were edited for content similar to their broadcast runs. Nine more VHS compilations were released from 1995 to 1999 for a total of 11, containing episodes from every season of the show except the first.
The Contents of the Work Sucks! and There Goes The Neighborhood VHS compilations were combined into a single LaserDisc compilation entitled Beavis and Butt-head: The Essential Collection, which was also released by Sony Music Video in 1994.

The Time-Life company was founded by Time Incorporated in 1961 as a book marketing division A set of three DVDs from Time-Life containing the same content as 6 of the VHS editions was released in December 2002.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom, the UK or Britain,is a Sovereign state located Some UK-only compilations include a three-part series entitled History of Beavis which contained the all of the Season 1 episodes, as well as a "Too Dumb For TV" compilation dedicated to some of the banned episodes such as "Stewart's House" and "Way Down Mexico Way". A fourth volume of History of Beavis was scheduled, but pulled from release at the last minute. Unlike the American tapes, some of the UK-only tapes contained music videos.
A two-disc DVD set titled The History of Beavis and Butt-head was scheduled for release in September 2002 containing the program content of four of the UK-exclusive VHS tapes. However, its release was cancelled at the last moment at the demand of Judge, who owns approval rights for video releases of the series. Many copies were mistakenly put on store shelves on the scheduled release date, only to be immediately recalled. The set started selling on eBay at very high prices, sometimes over $300 USD. eBay Inc is an American Internet company that manages eBaycom an Online auction and shopping Website in which people and businesses buy and According to Judge, the History set was made up of episodes that he had previously rejected for home video release and was prepared without his knowledge or consent.

All prior VHS and DVD releases have lacked these segments except for the VHS release of Beavis and Butt-head Do Christmas, and the last disc of the second Time-Life set.
23 of the 40 episodes included on the Mike Judge Collection were advertised to have been director's cuts containing "previously censored material". However, the majority of the "Director's Cut" episodes are actually missing footage from their original broadcast versions, although two episodes ("Home Improvement" and "Lawn and Garden") did indeed have excised footage reinstated. The reason for these edits is unknown, although Mike Judge stated in a Houston Chronicle article on the release that he corrected certain animation mistakes on the DVD that he found to be troublesome. The Houston Chronicle is the largest daily Newspaper in Texas, USA. The following (known to date) edits were all made in Vol. 1 in order to correct "animation mistakes" according to Mike Judge:

The Mike Judge Collection, Volume 3 was released on August 1, 2006. 42 episodes are featured, as well as 15 music video segments. Bonus features include the original, uncut "Frog Baseball" episode, and many (if not all) of the Christmas-related clips. Despite the criticism received over severe episode censorship in Vol. 1, edits were again made on at least two episodes - a scene where Beavis & Butt-head cut their teacher's chair in half was removed in "Woodshop", and a short line from Beavis in "Impotence".
The Mike Judge Collection has received much criticism from fans of the show, many of whom believe that the show should be released in an uncensored and complete set. Some fans have also accused Mike Judge of censoring the episodes in the Mike Judge Collection for content rather than for artistic reasons. 
However, a release is circulating on the internet which shows the episodes and Do America in their uncut form, created by a fan, which has been noted as superior to other releases due to its inclusion of segments of video that have been previously cut out.
