It horrified the MoralGuardians from the get-go, and a few of its more controversial aspects had to be dropped -- notably Beavis' pyromania, after they reportedly inspired a viewing child to set a fire in his house that killed his sister[[note]] According to the child's mother, it was his babysitter who apparently let him watch the series, and prior to the fire incident he would go around the house laughing like the main characters. According to the neighbors, however, the family didn't even have cable. In any event, the incident scarred the boy possibly for life[[/note]]. In one case in real life which apparently was inspired by the show's antics, a boy killed his brother by giving him a ride in a commercial dryer, the way one of the characters did to the other, which made the show rein in some of its more outrageous acts of stupidity. Also spurring objections were the boys' constant use of fireworks to blow things up, along with their tendency to amuse themselves with physical violence and animal cruelty, most notably the infamous pilot episode "Frog Baseball".

** Even if a singer/band and their music is not of the styles the duo tends to enjoy, they will like the video if there is anything sexual in it, such as when they really get into a Barry White video, with Butt-Head referring to him as "the horniest dude who ever lived".

In late 2011, [[{{Uncanceled}} the show returned to MTV]]; while the format had been slightly tweaked -- the snark segments now covered both music videos ''and'' MTV original shows such as ''Series/JerseyShore'' and ''True Life'', presumably to prevent the sort of rights issues that surround the original series' snark segments -- the show remained the same otherwise. The 2011 series, however, only lasted one season before being canceled again. However, MikeJudge is trying his best to find another network (possibly ComedyCentral, who had aired reruns of the show before) to pick the show up again, though his [[Series/SiliconValley current projects]] are taking up most of his time right now. Only time will tell if the duo will ever return to television again.

** At the beginning of "Breakdown," Principal McVicker is at a complete loss with how to deal with Beavis and Butt-head:
-->'''McVicker:''' What am I going to do with you two? I've tried everything from group counseling to death threats...
Later in the episode, McVicker is a patient at a psychiatric hospital because Beavis and butt-head made him have a nervous breakdown:
-->'''Psychiatrist:''' Mr. McVicker, what are we going to do with you? We've tried everything from group counseling to physical isolation...

* AlternateUniverse: "[[ItsAWonderfulPlot It's A Miserable Life]]" showed Beavis as he would have been without Butt-Head's influence. He ended up as a nice guy, who was even helping Stuart feed the homeless on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately by the end, he seemed to be [[StatusQuoIsGod rather taken with the phrase "bunghole"...]]
