That turns out to be largely true, with only the shifting backdrops for their shenanigans — like visiting an escape room, easily the best of the four stories in the episodes previewed — reflecting that we’ve moved into a new century. Judge also drops in one very amusing cameo as a reminder of his animated filmography.
Animated characters are always ageless, but this isn’t exactly the Peanuts gang as candidates for revivals go. Through the years, though, Judge has demonstrated that he certainly knows how to work the system, and that when it comes to “Beavis and Butt-Head,” the funny side of stupidity is, indeed, eternal.
“Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head” premieres Aug. 4 on Paramount+.
