* In the episodes "Candy Selling" and "Manners Suck," Beavis jokingly suggests that Mr Manners/Mr Candy was attempting to molest him, just to be funny, and in the Skrillex music video commentary, he states that "every child molester I've ever met looks just like (this guy.)" And in the music video segment of the episode "Drones," Beavis reveals that he was raped by a school grief counselor. Could Beavis's experience of getting molested have contributed to his rather disturbed personality and quick tendency to make jokes about molestation? It really puts his character in a very sad light.

* Really, the show's entire premise becomes downright horrific when you completely strip away its comedic elements. The show is about two young teenage boys who are victims of extreme poverty, illiteracy, and a gross amount of parental abuse and neglect. One of the boys is incredibly abusive to the other, who happens to be afflicted with some kind of untreated mental illness, possibly schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. The boys are almost completely rejected by society, and almost nobody cares about them or likes them. In both Christmas shows, it's shown that the world would actually be a better place if they never existed. Neither of the boys know their fathers, Butt-Head's mother is almost never mentioned, and Beavis's mom is repeatedly referred to as extremely promiscuous and neglectful to Beavis. The only thing preventing this show from being extremely depressing is the fact that A) it's a comedy, and B) almost nothing seems to actually bother the main characters, as they're always seen laughing.

Added DiffLines:

* I always wondered WHY Beavis hung out with Butthead despite Butthead being incredibly abusive to him. Then I listened to the "The Beavis & Butthead Experience" CD. The duo have a conversation in which Butthead states that "if everything was cool, you wouldn't be able to tell what sucked and what was cool," then uses an example- slapping Beavis, then saying that the period of time AFTER getting slapped, after the pain has worn off, is cool. Beavis agrees, and asks to be hit again, each time yelping in pain, but then laughing and asked to be hit again. Beavis is a masochist! To a certain extent, he enjoys being humiliated and abused, but is able to stand up for himself when Butthead goes too far. And Butthead is a sadist. They have a platonic sado-masochistic relationship. THAT'S why they complement each other so well!

** Even more disturbing is what the crazy homeless man says to Beavis and Butthead. "Women, they fine when they don't know what's happenin'." The homeless man has raped women before.

*** "Probably" nothing, the old man literally tries to have sex with one of his followers one last time before expiring, he just calls it "exchanging holy essence" or something.

** Because the guy was running a risky experiment in a completely unsafe environment. All Beavis did was trip on some wires, an innocent mistake ANYONE could do. Yeah, sucks for that guy, but he apparently wasnt smart enough to take proper precautions before screwing around with his own brain.

* I always thought of ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' as being the more hopelessly idiotic of the two, and Butthead's mental inferior in every way (which is saying something). After the show was canceled, though, it occurred to me that Beavis had always been more 'people smart'. He was a pretty nice guy most of the time, and often seemed close to getting some pity sex before Butthead ruined it by being a {{Jerkass}}. -@/RyanW

** Well just think about the fact that the group's leader was an old man and has probably been doing the same charade for decades. But intentional.
