When Mike Judge presented the new Beavis and Butt-Head to the Television Critics Association, I raised my hand with lots of questions. He clarified that there’s no mention of the time that’s passed, they’re still watching music videos, the boys still look crappy in hi-def and they have still never scored.
There was still so much more to discuss though. Judge had said that he’s having Beavis and Butt-Head review movies, Siskel and Ebert style.
Q: What movies are you having Beavis and Butt-Head review?
Mike Judge: So far I’ve just done one, Human Centipede.
Q: Oh my God, that’s perfect!
MJ: Yeah, when I saw it, in fact that gave me the idea, I’ve got to have Beavis and Butt-Head review this. That’s the only one I’ve done so far and one of the things I have them do after they show a clip of the movie is I have them talking about how there’s going to be a Sex and the City 3, why don’t they combine it with a Human Centipede sequel and just have those girls all get lost in the forest, the doctor strings them all together and you get two sequels in one. Since I’ve done that, now there is a sequel to Human Centipede. It’ll still play hopefully. That’s part of the reason we’re waiting is we want to do a movie that’s just coming out. We have this animated set of them on a Siskel and Ebert like set.
Q: Are there studios that would let you see a rough cut to start writing and time it to a release of a movie?
MJ: Yeah, we’ve talked about doing that. Luckily, with that kind of stuff, it’s what we call repurposing, same with the videos. So it’s a little quicker turnaround.
Q: Would a mainstream studio allow you to Beavis and Butt-Head one of their films?
MJ: Yeah, they would but as far as putting it on DVD down the road, probably not. I think you have to go to the actors and stuff like that to do it.
Q: Well, you’re part of the Paramount family. You could at least coordinate with them.
MJ: Yeah, I think we’re going to do it for some. If it doesn’t end up being sellable on DVD and Netlflix then we’ll just do it for the time being just for fun.
Beavis and Butt-head will return on MTV October 27, 2011
