MTV Hasn't Been the Same Without Beavis & Butt-Head and Now They're Making Their Triumphant Comeback!
The Boys Present The Viewer's Choice Award at The 2005 MTV Video Music Awards
'Beavis & Butt-Head: The Mike Judge Collection, Volume 1' DVD Set To Release
NEW YORK, Aug. 24 -- MTV: Music Television announced today
that the boys are back and looking to score. After over seven years off the
air and being sorely missed by the MTV audience, Beavis & Butt-Head are set to
present the Viewer's Choice Award at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards on August
28th. In addition, it was also announced that MTV and Paramount Home Video
Entertainment will be releasing "Beavis and Butt-Head: The Mike Judge
Collection, Volume 1." The DVD box set is scheduled for release on November
Beavis & Butt-Head left on a tremendous high in their career and are still
wildly popular with the MTV audience. "Beavis & Butt-Head" was one of MTV's
highest rated series ever. "Beavis & Butt-Head Do America," their feature film
released in December 1996, grossed over 70 million dollars, their DVDs sold
over 5 million units, and the video game series sold over a million units.
"We're excited to work with Beavis and Butt-Head again," said Van Toffler,
President, MTV Networks Music/Films/Logo Group. "But we really didn't have a
choice. They were persistently calling me at work, at home, and on my cell.
They wouldn't leave me alone until I agreed to take their call and help them."
"Uh, so we called up Toffler and asked him to put us back on MTV so we
could score," said Butt-Head. "And he invited us to the VMAs and said we
could put out a DVD of our stuff."
"Uh huh-huh-huh. Dumbass," said Beavis.
More details of the DVD will become available as soon as Beavis & Butt-
Head get off their couch and figure out what they're doing.
