While hanging out at the panel for his new movie Extract, director and all around genius Mike Judge was of course, pelted with questions about some of his past projects. When asked about the possibility of more Beavis and Butt-Head, he shocked everyone by revealing that it’s not only possible, but they’ve actually put together a few ideas for a sequel to the 1996 Beavis and Butt-Head Do America film.
Says Judge, “That keeps coming back. We have a couple of treatment, and if people really wanted it, it’s not out of the question. We're doing the usual every 3 or 4 year talk about it.” I think it’s safe to say folks, that was a tease. I’m envisioning a closet somewhere in Mike Judge’s house full of brilliant Beavis and Butt-Head ideas just waiting to be unleashed, if only we all shout loud enough for them. Grab your blogging megaphones and start yelling. Bring on Beavis and Butt-Head 2.
UPDATE: Katey caught up with Judge after the panel, and while she couldn't get much in with other journalists asking weird questions, he did give us a little more information on how they judge fan interest. "I guess they do tracking. They did something 4 or 5 years ago, they did some tracking on that. And Beavis and Butthead awareness in general."
He also revealed that his favorite part of the show was Beavis and Butthead's commentary over silly music videos-- commentary that can be the most difficult part of the show to see.
What's really a bummer to me, is them talking over the videos is sometimes my favorite part, stuff I'm most proud. of. You can't syndicate that. To put them on a DVD, you have to clear the artists, the songwriters, it's really hard to get 'em. It's too bad, because that was probably the stuff I'm most proud of of anything I've done.
