coming back hard again, huh-huh-huh
Not too long after MTV officially disowned its Generation X heritage, the network is now reviving one of its hallmark properties from that bygone era: “Beavis and Butt-head” is joining the 21st Century.

The move to resurrect the hugely popular 1990s animated anti-heroes has been rumored for several days. But yesterday, sources at MTV confirmed that a new batch of “Beavis and Butt-head” episodes are in the works.

The new series would keep Beavis and Butt-head in their perpetual high-school state, but it would be updated so that the pals — who obsessively watch music videos on a battered TV set — could lob their snarky comments at more current targets like Lady Gaga.

Is it too much to hope for the same magic from 20 years ago being re-created? Snark is timeless, and pop music is certainly a treasure trove of target practice. Regardless, a “B and B” reboot will give me a reason to tune into MTV for the first time in several years. Here’s hoping.
