  • Beavis and Butthead got in trouble for laughing too much.

    In Spanish class the teacher asked Beavis and Butthead what is "como es quen" means but they don't know what it is and the only Spanish they know is at Taco Bell and they have 10 seconds to come up with a sentence in Spanish but they didn't so they're sent to the principal's office and got into trouble and in the next class they still goof off and it was very hilarious when Butthead flicked his pencil right into Beavis' eye(classic) and then the teacher called for roll and he called out "Buttkiss" which they think it's funny but the teacher send them to the principal's office again and in there science class they are still laughing yet again. Mcvicker has an idea for their punishment for laughing again. The next day Mr. Buzzcut told the class that Beavis and Butthead are not allowed to laugh and if they do they get expelled and get transfered to a different school and it's Sex Ed week and it was really funny when they are trying not to laugh. Very hilarious episode.moreless
  • This is an episode guaranteed to make anyone laugh.

    Here is my review for the Beavis and Butt-Head episode "No Laughing". I never really saw this episode until it was released on DVD as part of "The Mike Judge Collection: Vol. 1". Anyway, it is an old episode about Beavis and Butt-Head constantly going "Huh-Huh-Huh" and "Heh-Heh-Heh" in every class at school. They are sent to Principal McVicker's office when the teachers have had enough. Principal McVicker decides to put Beavis and Butt-Head on probation from laughing for the rest of the week, which is a very big problem for them when Coach Buzzcut is teaching them sexual-education in his class. One of my favorite scenes in this episode is when Buzzcut is yelling out every sex-related word at Butt-Head while he and Beavis are trying not to "Huh-Huh-Huh" and "Heh-Heh-Heh" (He looks very funny the way he was yelling at Butt-Head the entire scene). It is so funny it's easily considered a classic by many fans of the show.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When the Spanish teacher says: "Senior Butt-head, Como Es Juan," he is actually facing Beavis.

    • In the original cut, Buzzcut also mentions that they will be talking about the "scrotum" and the "clitoris," but does not take roll of Butkus, Gaylord, and Highman. Also, a scene after B&B run out of the school where they are still laughing, apparently much later, about how "they said penis...they said masturbation...they said vagina...that was cool" was not originally present.

      The version in the quotes section is from the DVD cut; it may have been timing (the DVD cut is almost exactly 6 minutes) or maybe the producers felt that "scrotum" and "clitoris" were too vulgar (they made a lot of strange edits in the first dvd set; less in the later sets--in fact, you can see the original version of the scene in the Disc 3 set, when Buzzcut reminisces on how much he hated B&B in the last episode.)

    • McVicker is completely different in this episode: His voice is gruff instead of stuttery, he is much thinner,and his last name is spelled McVicar.

    • McVickers voice is gruff in this episode but is stuttery
      in later episodes.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Mr. Stevenson: (to Beavis and Butthead) Damn it, what's wrong with you two? We've been in school for over seven months now and every single day when I call Daniel Buttkiss' name you guys start to laugh. (Beavis and Butthead laugh) Is it really still that funny? Doesn't it ever get old? Are you gonna laugh for the rest of you lives every time someone says the name "Buttkiss"? (Beavis and Butthead continue laughing) That does it, Principal's office, now!

    • Mrs.Dickie: (To Beavis and Butthead laughing about sperms) MCVICKER'S OFFICE NOW!

    • Coach Buzzcut: So, Beavis and Butt-Head... I understand Mr. McVicker's made a little arrangement with you guys... Yeah, a little probation. You see, class. Beavis and Butt-Head here are not allowed to laugh for a whole week. That's right, and if they DO laugh, they'll be expelled, and they'll have to go to Hope High School, where they'll get their asses kicked on a daily basis by all the other delinquents! Ha, ha, ha!
      (The class begins to laugh as Beavis and Butt-Head bite their lips, trying not to laugh.)
      Coach Buzzcut: Well, I was real glad to hear that, because this is Sex-Education Week. That's right; Sex-Ed Week! We're going to be talking about the (looks at Butt-Head as he talks) PENIS! We will be talking about the VAGINA! Do you think that's funny, Butt-Head? Do you find it amusing that we will be talking about the TESTICLES?! Yeah, we're also gonna be talking about VENEREAL DISEASE! SEXUAL INTERCOURSE! And... (grabs Butt-Head's hand) And we will definitely be spending a lot of time talking about the MASTURBATION!
      (The class begins to laugh again.)
      Coach Buzzcut: Now that that's out of the way, let's take roll. Butt-Kiss!
      Butt-Kiss: (laughing) Here.
      Coach Buzzcut: Gaylord!
      (A stiffled laugh is heard.)
      Coach Buzzcut: Highman!

    • Mrs. Dickey: Therefore, we can say that any two amoeba are identical twins, since they have the same genetic makeup. They are all the same sex--
      Beavis and Butthead: Heheheh....Huhuhuh...
      Mrs. Dickey: --and can reproduce by themselves. So all sperm cells contain either an X chromosome or a Y chromosome, and-
      Butthead: Huhuh...she said sperm.
      Mrs. Dickey: Depending on which sperm cell fertilizes the egg (more laughter) I SAID, depending on which sperm cell fertilizes the egg, the zygote will be either male or female - SHUT UP!!!
      Beavis and Butthead: Heheheh....Huhuhuh...
      Mrs. Dickey: McVicker's office, NOW!!!

    • Spanish Teacher: Senor Butt-head, comos es guan.
      Butt-head: Uh, burritos.
      Spanish Teacher: No no no, comos es guan. Comos es guan.
      Butt-head: Uh, guacamole.
      Spanish Teacher: No no, Senor Beavis, comos es guan.
      Beavis: Um, spaghetti.
      Butt-head: Spaghetti?
      Spanish Teacher: Spaghetti? That's Italian, you moron! Dammit! You idiots have been in this class for almost the whole school year, and the only Spanish you know is what you learn at Taco Bell. And Beavis can't even get that right. I'm gonna give you little bastards just ten seconds to come up with a sentence in Spanish, and if you can't, you're both going to the principal's office and you're both flunking. [pause] Well, I'm waiting.
      Butt-head: Uh, rendocurduhuh Rico Suave.
      Spanish Teacher: Principal's office, now!
      Beavis: Uh, Taco Supreme.
      Spanish Teacher: Get out! Now!

  • NOTES (7)

    • The clip of Beavis getting stabbed in the eye by a pencil that Butt-Head drops is reused in the montage sequence on the episode "Beavis and Butt-Head Are Dead".

    • This episode contains the Insect Court sequence from Lawn and Garden.

    • This episode aired in two parts.

    • Although never confirmed, Stewart's dad appears to be a teacher at Highland High School. He appears as one of Beavis and Butt-head's teachers.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of Principal McVicker (although he did appear as a nameless customer in "Customers Suck") And former-Marine-turned-teacher "Bradley Buzzcut"

    • This is Principal McVicker's first appearance. On his office door his name is spelled McVicar.

    • Censorship note: In the episode's original form, Buzzcut's string of sex words (used to torture B&B, who aren't allowed to laugh) included "THE SCROTUM!! THE CLITORIS!!" These words were removed from the first airing as well as the "Final Judgement" video release, but restored in all subsequent airings, and the clip in "Beavis and Butt-head are Dead". Also removed from the video release was the scene with the boys sitting in the bathroom stalls reading from magazines and discussing their punishment (before the scene in Buzzcut's class).
