MTV has released a nice long preview of the new Beavis and Butt-Head, and it's like the show — which originally ended in 1997 and returns with original episodes this fall — never went away. On hand is the same exact animation, the same AC/DC and Metallica T-shirts, the same dumb genius (a cult starts worshiping Beavis as Bungholio after mistaking his rantings for prophecies and his hand-punctures as stigmata). It makes sense that nothing much has changed: As Mike Judge explained at a Comic-Con panel, "I quit because I was getting a little burnt out," not because he felt the show had run its course. That said, there is one way Beavis and Butt-Head 2.0 veers off the path blazed by the first iteration: Nowadays, they won't spend as much time making fun of Mudhoney videos as they will making fun of Snooki (according to that same Comic-Con panel, along with Jersey Shore and MTV shows like Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant, the dudes also go in on Twilight). And trust that this is a fertile field. For one: In the clip above, as J-WOWW is attempting to assemble the "hookup board," Butt-Head wisely observes that "if they did this chart long enough, they could find out where herpes began."
