Amazon, Netflix, XBOX Or Hulu: Pick Up Beavis And Butt-Head

Dear Amazon, Netflix, XBOX & Hulu,

In the 1990s, MTV  had an adult animated series on their network called "Beavis and Butt-Head" which was created by Mike Judge(who also voiced the title characters), which became the network's most successful cartoon. It influenced pop culture, people quoted the characters, and shows that came around then were also influenced by this show. It was so successful that they made a movie, and later a spin-off of the cult series.

However series creator Mike Judge wanted to end it, because while the show was still in it's prime, he felt as if it was healthy to end it on a good note, and wanted t o start working on "King of the Hill", which i ran for 12 years but finally got the can by FOX. Since then, Mike Judge expressed interest in making new "Beavis And Butt-Head" episodes.

12 new episodes were promised, back in 2010, and on October 27th 2011, they did indeed premiere, and 3.3 million people tuned into watch the first episode of its revival. All the episodes that were broadcasted were instant successes, giving the network high ratings and showed the world that this show still indeed has an audience.

However, a year has almost passed, and MTV has not renewed this show for another season. We don't know why specifically, but we as "Beavis and Butt-Head" fans want to show you that the show is still eligible for another season. The show's ninth season did well in terms of ratings, drawing in higher ratings for MTV than the network has had in a long time. Plus, the truth is, people wanted new episodes for a while, but Mike Judge hasn't had interest until now.

Part of the show's success drew in more attention for MTV in the 90s, it was one of the most influential cartoons in its day, and the newer episodes get so many praise from critics. We believe that today's generation would also enjoy the hilarious,  dysfunctional antics of the "dumb, but lovable dynamic duo", as many of today's teenagers have tuned in, and have become fans of the show, amongst its older audience, which watched the show when it first came back.

Please think about the fans and the ratings that drew the audience in. In this day and age, we need Beavis and Butt-Head to keep us entertained, as this saying goes: "Laughter is the best medicine", and B and B are one of many things that make us laugh.

This is why I believe that you guys at "Amazon On Demand", "Netflix", "XBOX"  or "Hulu" should get the rights to air a new run of the show, and Viacom should team up with them to bring it back, as it fits in more with what Amazon, Netflix, XBOX & Hulu looking for and the reruns on Comedy Central over Christmas/December in 2012 did fairly well in terms of ratings, and people tweeted it constantly on Twitter. This is a great way of making the viewers, the fans and both networks happy.

Amazon, Netflix, XBOX & Hulu, you want original programming, right? We believe that "Beavis and Butt-Head" would be perfect for this!
