America’s favorite pair of slacker dudes appear to be returning to the TV screen after a 14-year absence.
Beavis and Butt-head will come back this summer, the cast of MTV’s Skins announced during the channel’s upfront presentation.
“Solid day in NYC,” Never Say Never star Justin Bieber tweeted Wednesday. “Played hoops and just went to the MTV Upfronts… BEAVIS and BUTTHEAD are coming back!!!”
The pair had a cameo in MTV Films’ Jackass 3D, but Bieber wasn’t born when the two high-schoolers first turned up on the network.
B&B first appeared in the 1991 short Frog Baseball, part of the MTV animation show Liquid Television. The short became so popular that a half-hour show resulted, combining the pair’s adventures with their commentary about music videos (usually of the grunge or heavy metal variety).
Beavis and Butt-head — the series — ran from 1993 to 1997 and had 200 episodes. There was also the 1996 feature film Beavis And Butt-head Do America, along with guest appearances on such shows as the MTV Video Music Awards and The Late Show With David Letterman.
The series led to Daria, a spin-off show which ran, huh-huh-huh, for 65 episodes from 1997 to 2002.
