"Uh huh huh huh...heh heh heh heh..."

(Beavis and Butt-Head are not real. They are stupid cartoon people completely made up by Mike Judge, whose voice you should be hearing right now. Beavis and Butt-Head are not role models. They are dumb, crude, thoughtless, ugly, sexist, self-destructive fools, but for some reason, the little weinerheads make us laugh. Some of the tropes you see below would cause a real person to get hurt, expelled, arrested, and possibly banned by the admins. To put it another way: Don't Try This at Home.)

Some intro rock music plays amidst an exchange of "Uh huh huh" and "Heh heh heh" laughter. Cut to a sky-patterned title card that reads, "TV TROPES", in a jagged font. As the intro music comes to a close, we transition to a pair of teenagers seated atop a couch.

Hey, Butt-Head, what's "self-demostrating"?

Uh, I think it's, like, where we're able to talk about ourselves and how cool we are, without some fartknocker doing it for us.

Whoa, really?! Heh heh. That sounds pretty cool.

Yeah, huh huh. So, like, he's Beavis and I'm Butt-Head. And we're a couple of guys who hang around, go to school, and sometimes work at Burger World. We also, uh, watch music videos and other stuff, because MTV also got crap like Jersey Shore on. Uh huh huh. So, like, you can read all these tropes about us and stuff. Uh huh huh, tropes...

Heh heh heh heh...tropes.

Come to Butt-Head...uh huh huh:

  • Accidental Hero: Me and Beavis tried to score with this one chick, who said she would do it if we got to Washington. That "unit" those dudes were looking for, like, dropped in my hand, and the President said me and Beavis were heroes. Uh huh huh, "unit".
  • Air Guitar: DAAAHHH DAAAHHH DAHNAH DAH. DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA, DAAA-NAA DAHHH.
  • All Men Are Perverts: We wanna score, huh huh. And see some thingies.
  • Amusing Injuries: Mostly Beavis. Uh huh huh huh. It's pretty cool.
    • Um, what're you talking about, Butt-Head- [slap!] OW!!! Cut it out, butthole!!
  • Berserk Button: Don't call me a buttknocker, heh heh. It really pisses me off! Like this one time where Butt-Head kept calling me a "buttknocker", and I had to kick his ass. Call me a buttknocker, and I'll kick your ass! Heh heh.
  • Bloody Hilarious: There was this one time, where Beavis got a bloody nose and he bled all over and stuff. And then there was that time he sawed off his finger in woodshop. Uh huh huh, "wood".

  • Casanova Wannabe: Hey, baby. Uh huh huh. Do you, like, wanna get it on? Uh huh huh.
    • Heh heh, hey, how's it going? Heh heh heh.
  • Catch Phrase: Me and Beavis have a lot of these, because we're so cool. That Mike Judge dude didn't get how "This sucks" could be one of these, but that's just because he's not very cool.
  • Cheek Copy: I tried to copy my butt one time, and my butt broke the glass. I was stuck, which sucked, because I didn't want to lose my butt! Heh heh. I eventually got out and they put stitches in my butt. I wanted to see what they looked like, so I tried to copy my butt...
  • Chick Magnet/Kavorka Man: This one time, when a bunch of people wrote letters to Santa Butt-Head, all these chicks totally wanted to do it with me! Heh heh! But Butt-Head wouldn't give me those letters! Heh heh. I would have scored, if he wasn't a dillhole.

    • Yeah, yeah, really. I couldn't get a stiffy for a week after seeing that, heh heh heh.
  • Genius Ditz: Some people think that we're actually really smart and stuff, because me and Butt-Head watch music videos and talk about them. It's, like, we just know what sucks and what doesn't suck.

"YOU WILL GIVE ME TP!"

What the hell is this crap? All they did was make us talk and stuff! Heh heh.

Yeah, huh huh huh.

Whoa! Heh heh. Check it out, Butt-Head.

Beavis notices a conveniently placed stash of soda near the couch. He shotguns several cans in rapid succession. Mere seconds later, he begins to twitch, writhe, and mutter incoherently.

Uh, Beavis?

Beavis continues twitching.

What's your problem? Huh huh.

Beavis stands up, pulls his shirt collar over his hair, and raises his arms.
