Awesome / Beavis and Butt-Head

Go To

Beavis and Butt-Head has some moments that are cool.

  • Cornholio. Full Stop.
  • Beavis's "We're never gonna score!" breakdown in The Movie comes to mind.
  • Their collaboration with Cher was the stuff of legends.
  • The episode "Mr. Anderson's Balls", in which the boys go around a golf course, sneaking around and stealing golf balls (mainly Mr. Anderson's), and later selling them to the golf players (including Anderson himself), and they actually pull it off without a hitch. Normally, Beavis and Butt-Head are a pair of dim-witted morons with a one digit IQ, so to see one of their money-making schemes actually work to perfection was quite stunning.
    • And they sell them cheaper than the ones in the sports shop, effectively stealing the shop's customers and making some good money.
  • In one episode, Beavis and Butt-Head are given a dollar by a girl on the condition that they leave her alone. They attempt to buy a gallon of gas with it, only to be told by the surprisingly patient and helpful gas station clerk that they could use their dollar to buy a lottery ticket. They end up winning $500... and use it to buy a lawnmower and gas for said lawnmower. Then they take it for a joyride, ram it through the wall of their school, and use it to mow the anarchy symbol into the school lawn.
  • Tom Anderson gets one of his own after his neighbor threatens to sue him after Anderson's steamroller damaged his hedge, thanks to Beavis and Butt-Head in "Steamroller".
    Bill: You're gonna pay for this, Anderson!
    Tom Anderson: Like hell I am. You're the one who told me to rent from Morgan's. Now get the hell out of my property you son of a bitch! [punches his neighbor, who falls to the ground] And if I ever see that damn dog of yours peeing on my yard again, I'm gonna shoot both of you!
    • Not to mention the scene where the duo rams a steamroller into Coach Buzzcut through a wall in the same episode.
  • In the episode "The Trial," Beavis and Butt-Head are on trial for egging Mr. Anderson's house, and defend themselves about as well as you'd expect...until Butt-Head is inspired by a thought-bubble of a celebrity he saw on TV, advising him to "Use the Force." Under the influence of this outside inspiration, Butt-Head promptly has x seconds of badassery, with authoritative take-charge voice included:
    Butt-Head: "Sir, so for all you know, it could have been—" [Points at Stewart, in the audience] "—HIM who threw rotten eggs at your window!"
    Tom Anderson: "Well, all you kids DO look a lot alike..." [Adjusts his eyeglasses]
    Butt-Head: "If that's your opinion, sir; then your testimony as an eyewitness is hardly credible!" [Points at Anderson] "It is incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial!" [Promptly returns to normal, and sits down] "...Uh, or something. Uh huh huh. Uh huh huh huh huh. I rest on this guy's face....uhh, I mean I rest my case."
  • Beavis finally reaching his breaking point and telling Butt-Head to shut up, followed by kicking him in the nads. Over a Bon Jovi video, of all things.
  • Stewart's Throw the Dog a Bone moment at the end of "Holy Cornholio". After putting up with Beavis and Butt-Head's jokes, one of the series' Butt Monkeys is going to bang the women that Beavis and Butt-head pass up (due to being completely ignorant of what "conception" means).
  • Mr. Buzzcut, with just five simple words; "Kick me in the jimmy!"
    • Mr. Buzzcut beating the crap out of Mr. Candy at the end of "Candy Sale".
  • McVicker at the Town Hall Meeting in "Dumb Design". He may be a stuttering convulsing mess, but when he tells the arguing crowd to shut up, everyone shuts up.
  • The duo actually succeeding in getting in Todd's good graces at the end of "A Great Day."
    Todd: Hey man. Thanks.
    Butt-Head: Cool. Todd owes us.
    • And then they see him beat the crap out of somebody.
  • Even though it's All Just a Dream, Beavis's fantasy of being in The American Revolution in "Our Founding Losers" is as awesome as it is anachronistic.
  • They got to meet President Clinton in "Citizen Butt-Head." And then again in the movie!
