Beavis And Butt-Head/The Wonder Years

Supposedly "Beavis And Butt-Head" is being renewed, or really brought back for a new generation of watchers. MTV is completely different from what it was in the early 1990's when "B&B" was first aired.  Now, instead of panning music videos (which was the best part of the show) they are supposedly poking fun at the awful crapload of reality shows MTV has been spewing out left and right. We'll just have to wait and see how this all turns out when it airs on October 27th. Or actually, you can check out a 4 minute sneak peek that's on MTV's website, or here from a You Tube copy of that same video:
You Tube is also where you can watch the last remaining evidence of Beavis and Butt-Head making fun of music videos. 
Unfortunately, music rights have always been an issue when it comes to releasing a DVD of a TV Show. This has plagued "The Wonder Years" (I don't have a photo from that as of now) from ever being released on DVD because of the crippling amount of music licensing that would need to be worked out. It has also effected the Instant Streaming version as well because the theme song (Joe Cocker's version of the Beatles' "With A Little Help From My Friends") isn't even correct. Sure, in the few episodes I watched, I heard Buffalo Springfield and the Byrds, but I have no clue what I haven't heard. 


  1. Is the Wonder Years on Netflix now? I heard they were trying to get it.

  2. Yeah, I guess after the backlash they might've bumped it. That seemed to be one of the main arguments about switching over to Amazon ("They have "The Wonder Years! and Netflix doesn't!"). I take it they wanted to put some of those complaints to bed.
