To help get fans pumped for their upcoming return to television, Beavis and Butt-Head: Mike Judge’s Most Wanted on DVD culls twenty of the funniest episodes of MTV’s classic show from the previously released three-volume Mike Judge set for your easy consumption on a single DVD. While it’s just an obvious attempt to make some quick-cash, it will also remind fans and newcomers why this show doesn’t suck and stuff, huh-huh-huh.

This disc features twenty of the show’s creator Mike Judge favorite Beavis and Butt-Head episodes, including the classic “Beaverly Buttbillies”, which follows our heroes as they try to strike oil in their front yard, only to strike a septic tank, to “The Great Cornholio”, where Beavis turns into his infamous alter-ego after consuming too much coffee and candy. Also included are “Sexual Harassment”, “Substitute”, “Plastic Surgin’”, and several others. Sadly, the music videos from the episodes are missing in action, presumably for copyright reasons, but it’s still the good old-fashioned Beavis and Butthead antics that’ll have you laughing at their stupidity.

The series features a nice transfer to DVD, as the episodes are crisp and clean here. The sound is also spot on, as you’ll hear every “huh-huh-huh” and Butthead slapping Beavis loud and clear. There’s not a lot of special features, but what’s here it pretty cool. “The Taint of Greatness: The Journey of Beavis and Butt-Head”, is an hour long, three-part behind-the-scenes look at the series featuring Mike Judge and other members of the crew talking about what goes into making the show, and also presenting sketches and small looks at episodes that never made it past the drawing board.

The controversial – and uncut –  “Frog Baseball ” short is included, showing where Beavis and Butthead first appeared and became famous on the awesome, but short-lived Liquid Television series. And to round things out, there’s a few short clips from the upcoming all-new Beavis and Butt-Head series, which shows that the boys haven’t missed a beat during their long absence.

While Beavis and Butt-Head: Mike Judge’s Most Wanted may be just a quick cash-in for the upcoming new series, it’s still a fun DVD to check out if you’re new to the series, or passed up on the previously released – and more complete – Mike Judge collection. More a sampler than a comprehensive look at MTV’s anti-heroes, there’s plenty of fun in the twenty episodes collected here, showing us the best (and worst) adventures the boys get themselves into. There’s also not much in the way of special features, but at least there’s an interesting behind-the-scenes look at how the show was put together, and a sneak peak at their all-new animated series. Fans will find plenty to laugh at, as newcomers can see what all the fuss is about. So if you’re looking for something that’s like, cool and stuff, you should check this out, huh huh huh.
