The reason it’s been so quiet over the last two days at Anime Superhero is…we’ve been preparing for Comic-Con! Now that it’s here, expect an explosion of nifty news, amazing videos and shocking revelations. And we’ll start with the Beavis And Butt-Head panel led by Mike Judge that took place this afternoon.
Judge revealed some behind-the-scenes facts about the series as a whole that we never knew before — which is quite monumental considering how long it’s been around. He also showed the audience clips from the first new season, which is two weeks from premiering.
It’s Harder To Write Stupidity Than You Think During the writing process for Beavis And Butt-Head Do The Universe, Judge confessed it was often hard to keep the duo’s single-digit IQs consistent. He said some writers kept coming up with things for them to do and say that were actually too smart.
There Will Be Music Videos For those wondering if Beavis and Butt-Head will be riffing on videos even though they aren’t on a music video channel anymore, the answer is yes. But as with the 2011 season, they’ll be watching more than just that. During the episode preview, they took to watching dumb social media videos and inserted their own commentary.
Beavis and Butt-Head Are 15 Years Old Judge stated it succinctly for the crowd. So there you go. They’re 15.
We’ll See The Smart Beavis And Butt-Head Again They’re poised to make return appearances in the series.
Judge Mentioned A “Daria Universe” Series Is In Production is this different from whatever that Jodie thing is meant to be, or is it the same? Who can keep track anymore? He also said King of the Hill stands a “good chance” of returning, which is a walkback from rumors that a revised series is already in production.
Some Future Plotlines For The Show: Beavis hallucinates a talking fire and becomes its disciple; Beavis and Butt-Head get stuck on a roof; Beavis and Butt-Head are on jury duty despite being far too young; Beavis and Butt-Heads try meditation. Judge says the average plotline for a B&B short will never get too radical — they are meant to be simple.
Mike Judge’s Beavis And Butt-Head returns with a new season August 4.
