Countdown to Christmas: Beavis & Butt-Head Do Christmas (1995)

Beavis & Butt-Head's best episode was their 1995 Christmas show, a 1 hour installment in which the dimbulbs parody Charles Dickens' oft-adapted A Christmas Carol and the film classic "It's a Wonderful Life" as only they can. It was Mike Judge's finest hour----until he created King of the Hill, that is.

Unfortunately, the entire hour is not available intact on YouTube. There are scattered pieces, and the individual parodies were posted off a phone. Not my idea of fun. Anyway, following is a compilation of the "Letters to Santa Butt-Head" skits, in which Beavis is abused while wearing a reindeer suit & bridle. Well, then again, Butt-Head always seemed to be the brighter of these lesser lights. Mind the Spanish subtitles.



Huh-huh-huh, ho-ho-ho. Rating: A.
