    Here is my review for this two-part episode of "Beavis And Butt-Head". It is a funny Christmas-related episode that consists of two different segments that have Beavis and Butt-Head starring in each of them. The segments are:



    Part 1 - Huh-Huh-Humbug (Starring Beavis):

    In this segment based on the Charles Dickens book "A Christmas Carol", Beavis has a dream that he's the manager of Burger World and he makes Mr. McVicker work late on Christmas Eve. When Beavis gets home, he encounters the ghost of Butt-Head, who tells him about three spirits that will teach him about the meaning of Christmas. The three spirits are all people that Beavis knows: Tom Anderson as the Ghost Of Christmas Past, Mr. Van Dreissen as the Ghost Of Christmas Present, and Coach Buzzcut as the Ghost Of Christmas Future.



    Part 2 - It's A Miserable Life (Starring Butt-Head):

    In this segment based on the classic movie "It's A Wonderful Life", Beavis and Butt-Head's guardian angel, Charlie, comes to them about making a difference for the world. And so, he uses his powers to take Butt-Head to show him what it would be like if he didn't exist. Afterwards, Butt-Head decides to leave the world as it is with him in it.moreless

    • (Coach Buzzcut appears on the TV as Beavis continues watching his video.)
      Beavis: Damn it, what's going on here?! I'm trying to watch a porno, and you fart-knockers keep interrupting me!
      Coach Buzzcut: (pulling himself out of the TV) Damn it, boy! I am going to smack some sense into you!
      Beavis: No way! Now get out of here! I want to watch my porno!
      Coach Buzzcut: (grabbing Beavis by the ear) Damn it, Beavis! I am the Ghost of Christmas Future! And I'm going to straighten you out, even if it means sticking a Christmas tree where the sun don't shine!
      Beavis: Really? That could hurt...

    • (Coach Buzzcut magically transports Beavis to an old cemetery.)
      Beavis: Whoa! This is cool. the future kicks ass.
      Coach Buzzcut: Beavis, This is a cemetery. Now, take a look at that headstone! (pulls Beavis towards a headstone)
      Beavis: (reading his headstone) "Here lies Beavis"... Whoa! Check it out; there's some dead dude with the same name as me! (continues reading) "He never scored"... He never scored. What a loser.
      Coach Buzzcut: Beavis, this is YOUR gravestone! This is how you will end up if you don't make some changes in your life! Don't you see? You never did anything with your life! You never left the house! All you did was watch pornography! And because for that, you never scored! (kicks Beavis into the grave)

    • Santa Butt-head: Shut up, Beavis, or else I'll kick your ass so hard that it turns inside out and comes out of your mouth. Huh huh, that would be cool.

    • Beavis: (cooking a dead mouse and speaking to himself)...Not a creature was stirring...
      Burger World Manager: Beavis! What the hell is that mouse doing on the grill?
      Beavis: I don't know, sir. You know, the grill's kind of dirty and I'm just trying to clean it, you know, like you said.

    • Beavis: What's a bunghole?
      Butt-head: You're a bunghole, bunghole!

    • Beavis: Whoa, Butt-head, look! They've got the new Wet Hooters!
      Butt-head: Beavis, everything I need for the rest of my life is in this store.

    • Ghost Butt-head: In life, I was your partner...but now I'm some dead guy with cool chains.

    • Beavis: I'm gonna unwrap my wiener.

    • Beavis: It's like, we'd all like to go home. Hell, I'd like to go home and spank my monkey! In fact...that's a pretty good idea.

    • (Beavis begins to dream that he is the manager of Burger World and he's bossing McVicker around.)
      Beavis: Damn it, McVicker! Quit screwing around! Or I'll take you out back and I'll kick your ass if you don't shape up!
      McVicker: But I wasn't doing anything!
      Beavis: Yeah? Well, I don't care, because not doing anything doesn't pay the bills!

  • NOTES (8)

    • This is the last episode for a holiday speacial. However, an MTV Thanksgiving special aired to promote the last Beavis and Butthead episode.

    • To promote the release of "Beavis and Butt-Head Do America" in 1996, MTV aired this special as a live webchat.

    • Mike Judge said that the frog joke at the bridge was a spoof to the pilot episode Frog Baseball.

    • The commercially-released DVD version of this episode removes one particular "Letter to Santa Butt-Head" from a writer who was in prison. This letter appeared in the original airing, and the re-airing during Christmas 1996. Why it was removed from the DVD is unknown at this time.

    • Notice in Part II: When Beavis and Stewart are volunteering at the homeless shelter, Charlie, the boys guardian angel, says "Stewart has self-esteem now." Stewart is wearing a 'POISON' shirt and Beavis comes out wearing Stewart's normal 'WINGER' shirt.

    • In the porno that Beavis is watching, the porno star "Bob Scratchit" looks exactly like Ron Jeremy.

    • Notice how Beavis, when talking to one of the Christmas spirits, emphasizes the use of suggesting Mr. McVicker should be FIRED.

    • No music videos were featured in this show, but instead featured the heartwarming "Letters To Santa Butt-head" segments, with Beavis alongside in a reindeer suit. The commercially-released videotape of this episode features the "Santa Butt-head" segments, as well as yule log parodies and the following music videos:

      The Ramones - "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)"
      Hoodoo Gurus - "Little Drummer Boy"
      Buster Poindexter - "Zat You Santa Claus?"
      Run-D.M.C. - "Xmas in Hollis"
