* TearJerker: The duo meeting [[spoiler: their fathers for the first time]] in ''[[TheMovie Do America]].'' The fact that they woke up the following morning after bonding at the campfire only to see that they left while they were still asleep makes it more heartbreaking. Granted, [[spoiler: neither the duo nor their fathers knew who they were]], but anyone who has suffered from ParentalAbandonment could relate.

* AcceptableTargets: "Wuss music" and geeky types like Stewart (which explains why Stewart wore a shirt from the band "Winger" as a contrast to Beavis' Metallica shirt and Butthead's AC/DC shirt).

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Interesting in the case of Coach Buzzcut. Although he is one of the main antagonists of the show, one could also argue that he is kind of a HeroAntagonist, because Beavis and Butthead are often extremely unpleasant in any situation. Although this is challenged a bit by his aggressive behavior, tendency to threaten ''anyone'' with bodily harm, and him turning a bunch of students onto a new student in "Young, Gifted & Crude" as seen in KickTheDog below.

** Also, Beavis. There are numerous hints dropped throughout the original series that Beavis, despite being a thick-headed pain in the ass to most everyone he meets, actually has a heart in there somewhere, but Butthead is too much of an abusive bad influence for him to even remotely realize that potential. He even makes an effort to be polite to people, despite his lack of social skills ("Hey how's it goin'?"), such as actually saying thanks and sorry to people on occasion.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Butthead is either just as funny as Beavis or disliked for being abusive towards him.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The entire "Incognito" episode. Beavis and Butthead anger a student who carries a gun to school, and everyone treats the whole issue as an UnusuallyUninterestingSight. In light of the many widely-televised school shootings that would ensue in TheNineties and TurnOfTheMillennium, it...got a lot less funny.

** While watching the video for "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" by Slash's Snakepit, Beavis and Butthead see Eric Dover (from Music/{{Jellyfish}}) and immediately ponder "what happened to Axl," thinking it's a Music/GunsNRoses video. As it would turn out, the situation with the real Guns N' Roses would become [[IAmTheBand quite the]] [[RevolvingDoorBand opposite.]]

** In the episode "Going Down," Beavis and Butthead were excited by the possibility of having a three-way with a woman. Which involved Butthead mounting Beavis from behind.
** In one episode, the two are seen sleeping on the couch. Butthead accidentally leans over on Beavis's shoulder, then quickly sits up when he realized what he's done.
** In the episode "Babes R Us," Beavis and Butthead put on bikinis and mud-wrestle. No, really.

** Butthead often comes into this territory. While he is more of a BrokenBase, he is often hated by Beavis fans for his poor treatment of Beavis.

* SocialServicesDoesNotExist: Beavis and Butthead are teenagers, who appears to live on their own, which begs the question on how could no one considered checking on their home life. One even would ask where are their mothers?

** In "Crying", Beavis teared up due to an onion on his chili dog. Butthead would not stop giving him a hard time for crying. It then shows them 80 years in the future, at a nursing home. Butthead is still giving him a hard time for crying, and then he falls over dead. Beavis seems unaffected by his death, maybe even delighted.

** The episode "Butt Flambe" somehow manages to be this combined with [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funny]]. The episode begins with Beavis being taken to the hospital with third-degree burns on his butt, with Butthead laughing at him. But Beavis's reactions were played completely straight- he looks completely miserable and terrified during the whole episode and is practically crying, even begging the nurses "please" because he's hurting so much. Genuinely sad shots of Beavis being examined and desperately screaming "NO!" are interwoven with scenes of Butthead donning a doctor's disguise to sneak into operating rooms to watch the operations. Fortunately, Beavis is fine by the end of the episode, bandaged up and watching TV.
** When Beavis and Butthead are commenting on Pantera's music "This Love," Butthead theorizes that the lead singer is angry because of a domineering father. The commentary starts off pretty funny, with both of them imitating "Pantera's father" ("Dammit Panerta! You treat your stepmother with respect!") That is, until Beavis gets a little TOO in-character and specific with it, visibly freaking out and shaking/screaming as he does so. Even Butthead is slightly unnerved by this, and tells Beavis to calm down.
* UglyCute: Beavis, to some fans. His exuberant and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold somewhat naive personality]] make him endearing to a lot of fans, especially when compared to [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk Butthead]].

* WereStillRelevantDammit: The switch to watching reality shows over music videos in the revival could be seen as this, but then again, let's face it, MTV changed a ''lot'' between 1997 & 2011.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Lost in the tragedy of a child burning down a house, or part of a house, is the question ''Why is a child watching Beavis and Butthead?!?'' It's animation, right? Must be [[AnimationAgeGhetto OK for the children]], then. The child in question watched the show because his babysitter let him watch it, but who cares? {{Moral Guardian}}s in America certainly didn't.

Added DiffLines:

*** Similar to the Van Driessen theory below, is Buzzcut just using a JerkassFacade to instill order in his students? Out of all the people who have expressed hatred for the duo in ''It's A Miserable Life,'' he is noticeably absent, he defended the duo from Mr. Candy, and is a proud patriot.


Added DiffLines:

** Does Mr. Van Driessen actually care about the boys, or does he only pretend to tolerate them out of [[HolierThanThou a sense of self righteousness]]? There have been some moments that imply the latter, such as declaring he'll "kill those little jerks" for destroying his 8-Track collection in ''Cleaning House'' and being one of the people to ask god to kill them in ''It's a Miserable Life.''
