Beavis and Butt-Head is an American adult animated comedy television series created by Mike Judge.[2] The series originated from Frog Baseball, a 1992 short film by Judge originally aired on Liquid Television. After seeing the short, MTV signed Judge to develop the short into a full series.[3][4] The series originally ran for seven seasons from March 8, 1993 to November 28, 1997.

During its initial run, Beavis and Butt-Head received widespread critical acclaim, particularly for its satirical, scathing commentary on society. It was also a subject of controversy for its violent content. A theatrical feature-length film based on the series titled Beavis and Butt-Head Do America was released in 1996 by Paramount Pictures.

Fourteen years following the end of the series, the series was revived for an eighth season airing from October 27 to December 29, 2011. A second revival consisting of two seasons was announced by Comedy Central on July 1, 2020.[5] On February 24, 2021, a second movie based on the series was also announced for streaming service, Paramount+.[6]
