How's it going my gumdrops? I happened to find 2 Beavis And Butt-Head shorts from 1992. I had no idea until now, that Beavis And Butt-Head had any shorts.
During middle school, I was that "weird girl," who watched this controversial cartoon. It was taboo for any girl to watch Beavis And Butt-Head because the characters were stupid, perverted, politically incorrect, violent, and disgusting.
In 1993, I remember Pat Robertson from The 700 Club and media watchdog groups demonizing Beavis And Butt-Head for their violent behaviors and dangerous stunts. Supposedly, a mother used the show as a scapegoat for why her 5-year-old arsonist sat their mobile home on fire. It resulted in his 2-year-old sister's death.
It was terrible what happened to that toddler. All the while, their neighbors said the family did NOT own any cable TV. Therefore, the dead toddler's careless mother not only slandered MTV's Beavis And Butt-Head, but she also should've paid attention to her precious arsonist.
Anytime a kindergartener intentionally sat his own house on fire, chances were highly great, that he was NOT going to be any asset to society. Careless parents and media watchdog groups' need to demonize the show, led to 2 different series disclaimers.

Beavis And Butt-Head Disclaimer #2
During Beavis And Butt-Head's 5th season, the writers of the cartoon mocked media watchdog groups by making episode114, "Lightning Strikes." If I could, I would post Beavis And Butt-Head's "Lightning Strikes." I searched everywhere online for that episode and was unsuccessful in finding it.
"Lightning Strikes" demonstrated how media watchdog groups slander and demonize entertainment, in order to have something newsworthy.
These media watchdog groups and extremists can demonize Beavis And Butt-Head all they want. The creator/voice actor, Mike Judge helped influence South Park's Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Beavis And Butt-Head helped pave the way for most adult animation, that exists on local and cable networks today.
Most MTV viewers at the time loved Beavis And Butt-Head. The characters were 2 illiterate, socially incompetent, juvenile delinquents, that usually sat on a couch watching TV, while criticizing music videos.
This was during MTV's glory days, when the network still predominantly aired music television.
My family sometimes watched Beavis And Butt-Head and laughed at their low IQ'ed antics with me. An episode showed Butt-Head throwing a garbage can and knocked Beavis unconscious, in his back yard. My mom laughed so hard, she cried tears that night. It was that hilarious.
As I became older, I met some teenagers, that sometimes made Beavis and Butt-Head look like complete geniuses. This is something appalling to believe but it is the awful truth. Anytime 2 stupid cartoons characters appear to have higher IQ's than real life people, we CANNOT help rolling our eyes and face palming, while simultaneously laughing at them.
Even though I am a 32-year-old woman, I still enjoy Beavis And Butt-Head 2 decades later. If a man my age or a little older than me dares to say, "I'm so over this show. That was from years ago," you have my permission to bitch slap him across the face. That guy is acting like a condescending douchebag.
Beavis and Butt-Head could also out twerk Miley Cyrus. Come to think about it, Miley was only shitting in her diapers, when the series debuted on MTV in 1993.
BTW: Twerking was supposedly founded in 1982. It didn't become more popular, until the '90s and early 21st Century.
Anyway, it's Cartoon Sunday. In the original Beavis And Butt-Head shorts from Liquid Television, there were NOT any music videos. Music videos were only added to the cartoon, when it moved to MTV. Here are the 2 Beavis And Butt-Head shorts, "Frog Baseball" and "Peace, Love and Understanding."
