* {{Irony}}: In "Closing Time," the duo fry up some nightcrawlers because they're bored. When the health inspector comes in, they offer them to him, claiming they're the new curly fries. He declines their offer of some burgers, saying they've probably got worms now.[[labelnote:Note]]He's referring to a different type of worm, but still.[[/labelnote]]

* FreezeFrameBonus: In "Be All You Can Be," when Sgt. [[UnfortunateNames Dick Leakey]] is getting the video to show the duo, there's a shot of the demographics each video is for. They include "Whites," "Blacks," "Latinos," "Other," "Homosexuals," "Discipline Problems," and in Beavis and Butt-Head's case, "No Future."

The titular characters were a pair of [[TheDitz not-too-bright]] (which in this case is quite possibly an overstatement of their intelligence) heavy metal music fans who virtually did nothing but watch real-life music videos on their TV and make snide ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''-esque comments about things in the videos that annoyed or amused them. These music video commentaries were pretty much inserted for padding into the very short episodes, where the boys would wander around their hometown of Highland, Texas, generally annoying those they met and committing acts of petty vandalism. The most common targets of the boys' pranks were their elderly neighbor Tom Anderson (who was basically an older, dumber prototype of [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank Hill]]), their hapless school classmate Stewart Stevenson, and most of the faculty of their high school. The character who took the worst abuse was Principal [=McVicker=], who was driven to drink, medication, and in the finale, [[spoiler:an apparently fatal heart attack.]] The dimwitted duo were, in turn, {{foil}}ed by the [[TheSnarkKnight sarcastic]] Daria Morgendorffer, who occasionally tricked them into publicly embarrassing themselves, and local hot-rodder/gangleader Todd, whom they admired but who invariably ended up maiming them (similar to how Stewart views them).

* FranchiseZombie: Subjective from a WordOfGod standpoint; Judge has pretty much stated that the last couple of seasons before the comeback were forced upon him by Creator/{{MTV}}, who wanted to keep the cash-cow show going. Not that it kept the episodes from still being pretty damn funny in their own right.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In the last episode of the original series, "Beavis and Butthead Are Dead", Principal McVicker falsely claims on camera that he would give up the entire amount of change collected in the duo's name just to see them alive again. Guess who shows up on the spot.

Added DiffLines:

* INeverSaidItWasPoison: The boys went on trial for [[{{Egging}} throwing eggs]] at Mr. Anderson's house in "The Trial". They were almost set to be pronounced not guilty when the plaintiff's lawyer noted that Butt-Head had called them "rotten eggs" instead of just "eggs." How did they know they were rotten? They could only stammer, and within a ''minute'' the jury pronounced them guilty. (Can you blame the jurors?)

* TwoDecadesBehind: For being teenagers in the 90s, Beavis and Butt-Head make an unusual amount of references to old television, such as ''The Brady Bunch'' and ''Gilligan's Island''. One music video segment even has them discussing ''My Three Sons'', which ended in 1972 and isn't well remembered. On the other hand, the two do watch a lot of TV in general, so it's not beyond the realm of possibility for them to have seen reruns of old shows. Indeed, one episode had them watching a (fake) episode of ''Series/GilligansIsland''. Another episode began with them watching ''Series/LeaveItToBeaver'', which inspired the rest of the episode with Beavis, Butthead, and other various characters as stand in for the cast of that show. It's evident that reruns of old TV shows is part of their daily television diet.
** Their love of heavy metal in the early '90s is also slightly behind the times, with the rise of {{Grunge}}.
** PlayedForLaughs with Stewart's Music/{{Winger}} t-shirt.
