Comedy Central announced Wednesday an expansive deal with Emmy Award-winning Mike Judge to reimagine MTV’s seminal, Gen X-defining animated comedy Beavis and Butt-Head, as well as additional spin-offs and specials.

Launched in 1993, Beavis and Butt-Head quickly became a force in pop culture and started a TV revolution with its pure, unadulterated, satirical commentary on youth and adolescence. Centered on two teenage couch potatoes, “Beavis” and “Butt-Head,” the unprecedented concept immediately became part of the vernacular in a way no other adult animated series had before. Known for tackling social issues including teen obesity, workers’ rights and media trends, the show connected with an entire generation, laying claim as one of the most innovative series in the modern-day zeitgeist.
