I laughed harder than I have in a long time while watching the new Beavis and Butthead DVD, out October 4th from Paramount Home Entertainment. Mike Judge’s Most Wanted is a collection of classic Beavis and Butthead cartoons, to help promote the return of the show to MTV at the end of October.
Now, when I say I laughed harder than I have in a long time, I don’t mean while watching the cartoons. I find very little funny about the show itself, and the episodes about some chicks who take the idiots’ money at a movie theatre, and the one where they draw some terribly violent cartoons in film class, and so on and so forth, are boring to me.
I always liked Beavis and Butthead, but only when they commented on music videos. And, when they started, MTV showed music videos. Now, MTV is a reality show network with precious little musical content – which is actually perfect for Beavis and Butthead. The belly laughs I got came from the special features, which offered a sneak preview of the upcoming show.
And watching them comment on Jersey Shore was one of the funniest things I have EVER seen. I killed myself laughing. That’s why I put that bit up at the top of the review here on the video. If you bust a gut laughing when Butthead says “that’s how she answers the phone”, you’re just like me. Maybe you have to know a bit about Jersey Shore first. Maybe not. All I know is that this is the best laugh I’ve had in a while.
The old stuff on this DVD doesn’t really appeal to me. I just can’t get into frog baseball or two morons destroying a house trying to kill a fly. But that one-minute preview of the upcoming season was absolutely perfect, and I will be looking forward to THAT in a big way.
