Vintage Interview: Beavis & Butt-Head’s Mike Judge From 1996


Long before he made Silicon Valley for HBO, long before he made the classic movie Office Space or the iconic cartoon King Of The Hill, Mike Judge was the mastermind behind Beavis & Butt-Head, the cutting edge ’toon that paved the way for Family Guy, Superjail!, and Metalocalypse.

In 1996, while he was working on the movie Beavis & Butt-Head Do America, I interviewed Judge for Bikini magazine about the movie, the show that inspired it, and what Mssrs. Beavis and Butt-Head will be like when they grow up.

What follows is a slightly edited version of that interview, most of which has never been published before.
