Beavis & Butt-head return to MTV feisty as ever

- Associated Press - Friday, July 22, 2011

SAN DIEGO (AP) - When the ever-adolescent Beavis and Butt-head return to MTV in the fall _ nearly two decades after their heyday _ even their own network won't be safe from the trash-talking duo's mockery.

Creator Mike Judge came to San Diego's Comic-Con on Thursday to talk about the reboot of his beloved animated characters and offer a peek at the new season, which is set to premiere in October.

In their new incarnation, the two perennial teens _ still wearing their AC/DC and Metallica shirts _ riff on music videos, YouTube submissions and MTV shows such as "Jersey Shore" and "Teen Cribs."

"They're also watching UFC fights," Judge says.

The 48-year-old writer, who also voices many of his characters, says that besides Beavis and Butt-head, he hopes to tackle live-action dramas in his creative future.

Comic-Con continues through Sunday.
