The vogue for reviving shows continues apace and Mike Judge, the creator of the classic 1990s comedy Beavis and Butt-Head, reveals he hasn’t ruled out a return of the two obnoxious sniggering youths.


“Maybe it could be a live-action someday,” the writer, who is currently enjoying huge success with his tech-inspired sitcom Silicon Valley, told

The show was a smash hit comedy in the 1990s after first airing as a short on MTV. Its two central characters were two teenage drop out heavy metal fans who irritate just about everybody they come into contact with at their Albuquerque high school with their childish humour and double entendres.

Both characters were voiced by Judge himself, and their snickering dialogue usually ended with the words "Shuddup Beavis" or "Your Mom".

The series first ran from 1993 to 1997 and was made into an animated feature film Beavis and Butt-Head Do America. It was briefly revived on MTV in 2011.

Asked who could play the duo Judge said he had no idea, although he did suggest that Beavis might be “homeless” by now.

Anyway, here they are in their former glory:


The finale of Silicon Valley airs Thursday 14th July at 10.10pm on Sky Atlantic or is available on catch up on demand
