Beavis and Butthead

This past weekend marked twenty glorious years since generational icons "Beavis and Butthead" first premiered on television screens. MTV unleashed the generation X weinerheads to an unsuspecting public in 1993, teaching a whole new audience about satire, riffing and proper means of "TP" acquisition along the way. It is in salute to the two titans of trouble that we bring you our choices for the five best Beavis and Butthead episodes of all time. Yes, we're all gonna score.

5. "Animation Sucks"
Once upon there were only two different kinds of animated shows aimed at adults. There was "The Simpsons," and then there was absolutely everything else which wound up getting cancelled within weeks. Controversial as they were, "Beavis and Butthead" helped change all that, proving not only could an animated show geared towards adults succeed, but be a network's cash cow as well. Of course, far be it from the show to take even itself seriously, hence the gem that is "Animation Sucks." A blunt send-up of the medium and its perceptions without being overtly tongue-in-cheek, it's a statement about the show itself made with Mike Judge's trademark irreverence.

4. "Citizen Butthead"
Just as controversial in the 90s as "Beavis and Butthead" was Commander-in-Chief Bill Clinton. With our 42nd President being considered the first to truly court the MTV generation, it was only a matter of time before he and the boys from Highland collided. A episode that the network itself hyped for weeks before its premiere, it's also become the go-to episode for universities to explain the 90s "Beavis and Butthead" phenomenon. It's also one of the sharpest episodes the show ever made.
