Added DiffLines:

* Tom Anderson sticking up for the duo in "Daughter's Hand" was a very brave and bold move, even though he loses the fight.

Added DiffLines:

** In the "It's a Miserable Life" episode, Beavis is shown to be a decent person in a world without Butt-Head, volunteering at a soup kitchen. And when Butt-Head assaults Beavis and tries to take him away, the homeless people Beavis served come to his defense and protect him.

Added DiffLines:

* Believe it or not, there are moments in the show where Beavis and Butt-Head actually compliment each other from time to time. Itís nice to see as it doesnít happen very often.

Added DiffLines:

Yes, even in a show like ''Beavis and Butt-Head'', there's bound to be examples.


* In "The Great Cornholio", Beavis actually ''apologizes'' to Principal [=McVicker=] for the trouble he's caused as Cornholio. [=McVicker=] was shocked so much, that he decides not to punish him and actually tells Beavis that he's [[SoProudOfYou proud of him]].[=McVicker=] then gives him more candy, and Beavis ''actually thanks him''. It's really nice, and interesting, how genuinely goodhearted Beavis can be in isolated moments.

* The end of ''[[WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtheadDoAmerica Beavis and Butt-Head Do America]]'', where they find their stolen TV.

* The end of ''[[WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtheadDoAmerica Beavis and Butt-Head Do America]]'', where they find their stolen TV. It's almost a BrickJoke considering the events of the movie, but still a ''very'' satisfying moment.



* "Beavis and Butt-Head are Dead," the final episode from 1997, is a loving tribute (via ClipShow) to the boys and their legendarily stupid antics over the years. According to WordOfGod, they did consider [[KilledOffForReal killing them off]], but they were such a labor of love by the producers that they couldn't bring themselves to do it. The episode instead ends with them walking into the sunset laughing to themselves, cracking about Principal [=McVicker=]. Cue closing credits, set to Liberace's "I'll Be Seeing You" (set over such touching clips as [[{{Squick}} Beavis scratching his itchy wiener with a Burger World spatula]]), with a message from the producers: "Thank you to all the talented artists, writers and highly intelligent people who worked so hard to make Beavis and Butt-Head look so dumb."

* A more fitting PetTheDog moment for the two would be the episode "Skin Trade" where Beavis [[spoiler: forms a bond with a dead animal he found at the dump that he treats like a pet]]. Twisted? Yes, but completely in character.

* From the revival season, the episode "The Rat." Despite spending the first half of the episode trying to kill the eponymous rodent that's invaded their kitchen, the dim-witted duo--Beavis, specifically--end up saving its life by accident...and then, after the rat grows visibly attached to Beavis, he suggests that they keep it as a pet. Butt-Head's response? A rather nonchalant, "Uh, okay."

* In "Manners Suck," when Beavis (jokingly) accuses Mr Manners of trying to molest him, a horrified Mr Van Driesen ''unhesitatingly'' comes to the aid of Beavis and starts slapping the crap out of Mr Manners. Of course, the entire scene is played as a joke, because A) Beavis is obviously lying, and B) Mr Manners and Mr Van Driesen proceed to engage in an exceedingly wimpy slap fight, but it really shows just how much Van Driesen cares for his students.
* Beavis's unlikely friendship with the old lady in "Beavis & Butthead Do America."

** In-universe, there's Van Driesen reminiscing about his experiences with Beavis and Butthead while theyre still believed to be dead, showing that not only does he hold no ire for the various physical injuries and pain they've caused him, he still holds them in the same regard he holds for all of his students.

** And despite breaking health regulations by taking it to Burger World, Beavis and Butthead ''do'' seem to like having the rat around. It's even still alive by the end of the episode!

Added DiffLines:

** Also from "Tech Support", the boys treatment of Hamid is nice, pronouncing his name right and offering him encouragement as he tries to emulate them.

* Beavis apparently having a fairly heart-to-heart conversation with a single mother over the phone in the revival episode "Tech Support."

* Beavis getting a ton of letters from lady admirers in the "Letters To Santa Butt-Head" segment. And then BOTH of the boys getting a letter from a woman at the end!
* Butt-Head bonding with Cher in the "I Got You Babe" music video.

* Beavis's unlikely friendship with the old lady in "Beavis & Butthead Do America."



* The duo's unlikely friendship with the female criminal only known as "Biker Lady" in the early episode "Friday Night." They assist her in robbing the convenience store and she takes them for a ride on her motorcycle, before driving off.
* In the revival series, Beavis revealing that when he has low self esteem, he listens to Katy Perry's song "Firework" to feel better about himself. Even better, when Butt-Head taunts him for this, Beavis gives him a swift kick in the balls. "Dammit, I AM a firework! I'm an M80!" A satisfying combination of awesome, and somehow, kinda sweet.

Added DiffLines:

*** Not only that, the rat is revealed to have been female at the end, when Butt-Head finds the rat curled up with her babies. Then the episode just ends. Adorable.
