Beavis and Butt-head - series of the 90s

This series is purely 90ish in every aspect, the humor, the style, lingo as well as its producing company, a channel that represented adolescents of the 90s more than any other.

Created by Mike Judge, the first appearance of Beavis and Butt-head was in his short film Frog Baseball was and cable channel MTV signed Judge to turn the concept into a series. It aired from March 8, 1993 to November 28, 1997 for 200 episodes of 3–6 min without music videos, 5–11 min with music videos and 12–21 min in the case of specials, divided into 7 seasons.

Focused on two socially inept rock-loving teenage boys, Beavis and Butt-head (both voiced by Judge), who lived in the town of Highland, New York and attended high school where they had troubles with teachers who often were at a loss as to how to deal with them although in many episodes the two skip school. They occasionally work part-time at Burger World and sometimes other side-jobs when people mistake their odd behavior as outgoing and assertive.

They get by obsessing over music videos, contemplating their sarcastic version of life and testing out really bad ideas. They spend their free time with sarcastic conversations, bad ideas, and (brutally) critiquing music videos.

They had even a movie version and are considered a piece of youth culture of the 90s, that is not so much for children but early millennials who were adolescents or young adults during that decade.
