In 2023 audiences are used to adult animation with popular titles like Rick and Morty, Bojack Horseman, and Tuca and Bertie, however there was a time not so long ago that all animation was considered cartoons by widestream audiences - automatically considering anything animated to be created for children.
Over time that changed with shows like The Simpsons, South Park, Animaniacs, Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, and others which paved the road for the trove of shows we have today in the adult animation genre.such as Big Mouth and Solar Opposites.
Even with the popularity surge in the genre slowly growing over the years, creator Mike Judge was an integral part of its initial beginning. Before we received Rocko's Modern Life, Ahh! Real Monsters, and similar titles, Judge played a big part in paving the road to where we are today. Beginning with animation shorts aimed at adults, with Milton likely being the most popular as the satire of the workplace reached large audiences and received a positive response.
The creator moved on to longer animated episodes and created Beavis and Butt-head, a series that started 30 years ago and was deemed by many parents to be unsuited for children due to the crude humor that drove the culture critic series.
Once he got started, Judge realized that he had a calling for the medium, moving on to King of the Hill. His shows got so much acclaim that the creator was able to move on and create a film with the cult-classic Idiocracy.
Approaching three decades since their inception, "the boys are back and stupider than ever". With a new DVD release on March 14th which brings back the first season of the classic animation, it also, and maybe more importantly to fans, includes an all new movie as well which focuses on more recent culture humor called Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe.
Mike Judge brings his two favorite creations back when Paramount +’s hit adult animation MIKE JUDGE’S BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD SEASON 1 arrives on DVD on March 14.
The three-disc collection includes all 12 episodes from the latest series, and includes the Paramount +’s original movie, BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE.
