Beavis and Butt-head este un show pe care-l urmaream cu interes pe MTV cand eram mic. Se difuza seara, dupa ora 11. Episoadele originale contineau misto-uri rar intalnite la televizor, mai ales datorita umorului la limita regulilor. Era in engleza si nu te stresa nimeni cu titrari sau voice-over-uri.
Am vazut de curand ca au aparut diverse colectii complete cu tot felul de editari, ciopartiri si alte d-astea. America a decis ca cele doua personaje animate sunt influente negative asupra copiilor. I-auzi!
Decat sa ma uit la niste episoade din care au ramas doar poantele la care zambesti, pentru ca si clipurile au fost scoase si puse separat, mai bine renunt. Totusi, raman cu amintirea unui show superb.
Iata prin ce tip de cenzura au trecut episoadele originale:
Early episodes gave them a juvenile obsession with fire and dangerous behavior (summed up with Beavis' chant of "Fire! Fire!"). The show was blamed for a child's death which occurred in West Carrollton, Ohio in October 1993 in which a five year old boy set fire to his mother's mobile home killing his two year old sister. The mother later claimed that her son had watched one of the fire-related segments shortly before he burned down the home.
As a result, the references were excised from further broadcastings, being replaced by silly stunts, bad pick-up lines etc. The creators took delight in sometimes making Beavis scream things that sounded very similar to his previous "Fire! Fire!", such as "Fryer! Fryer!" (when he and Butt-head are working late shift at Burger World) and also having him almost say the forbidden word, such as one time when he sang "Liar, liar, pants on...WHOA!". References to fire were cut from earlier episodes - even the original tapes were altered permanently. Other episodes MTV opted not to rerun (Examples include "Stewart's House" and "Way Down Mexico Way"). Early episodes with the controversial content intact are rare, and are traded on homemade tapes made from the original broadcasts. In an interview included with the recent Mike Judge Collection DVD set, Judge denied being certain if some of the earlier episodes still existed in their uncensored form.
