One of the staple cartoons for teens and adults in the 1990s was Beavis and Butt-Head on MTV. Created by and starring Office Space and Idiocracy writer/director Mike Judge, the series focused on two dimwitted, aimless losers as they clumsily made their way through school, their fast food jobs, and life. Now the series is making a comeback with Comedy Central ordering two new seasons with an option to create new spin-offs and specials with the show’s characters. Read More »

Right now Nickelodeon is enjoying a dip back into the nostalgia of the ’90s with the programming block known as The Splat and the developing of projects such as the NickToons movie and a TV movie based on Legends of the Hidden Temple. Now it looks like MTV has been bitten by the nostalgia bug as the network is preparing to debut MTV Classic.
In what is a full-on revamp of VH1 Classic, the new channel will put a focus on the 1990s original programming that helped make the network a success in that decade and into the 2000s. This includes Beavis and Butt-Head, Daria, Cribs, Punk’d and much more, but there’s plenty of other awesome retrospective programming coming to this new channel as well.

If there are two things Hollywood loves right now, it’s 1990s nostalgia and reviving dormant properties. In that light, it’s probably just a matter of time before someone, somewhere, makes another attempt to bring back the iconic animated comedy Beavis and Butt-Head. Series creator Mike Judge, for one, thinks it could happen. Although this time, there could be a twist: Judge speculates that it could return as a live-action series. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Entertainment Weekly has out first (or last?) glimpse of the 12-minute Lost epilogue “The New Man in Charge” that will be included on the Series Finale DVD/Blu-ray set. Actor Michael Emerson reveals that “Ben is going around to Dharma installations and closing some down. There are some good surprises.” And yes, ”it does answer questions.'”

For part one of /Film’s exclusive interview with writer/director Mike Judge for his new film Extract, click here.
In the second part of my interview with Mike Judge, he shares a couple of candid, behind-the-scenes tales about dealing directly with the global corporations that he skewers in his live-action films. No other work captures both this modern satire and the writer/filmmaker’s view of where our world is headed better than 2006’s Idiocracy. The $30 million sci-fi satire was infamously dumped into a handful of theaters to die by 20th Century Fox; a surprising outcome since Judge’s King of the Hill—the Emmy-winning and second longest running animated program in television history—airs on the Fox Network. In fact, King of the Hill‘s grand finale airs this Sunday, and continues its run in syndication and as a contextually welcome addition to [adult swim].
We also discussed how actor Ben Affleck came aboard his latest film—a midlife crisis dramedy entitled Extract—as a shaggy, drug peddlng bartender named Dean. With a cast that includes Jason Bateman in the lead, SNL‘s Kristen Wiig, David Koechner, Mila Kunis, and Juno‘s great J.K. Simmons, it will come as a surprise to anyone sans Satan and Shannon Tweed that KISS‘s Gene Simmons steals the picture as a sociopathic ambulance-chasing attorney. Judge included. And, of course, no interview is complete without peering in on the irreversibly clueless futures of his most famous cretin-creations and voices, Beavis and Butt-Head. Judge shares a few premises for a possible and much anticipated sequel to 1996’s Beavis and Butt-Head Do America. One idea would see the two dumbasses thrown enormous –head first into our post 9/11 world gone mad.
