He wasn't even born when they made their début, but it seems Justin Bieber is a big fan of "Beavis and Butt-Head." In fact, the singer took to Twitter yesterday to break the news that the animated duo would be making a comeback on MTV.
The teen idol found out the good news while attending the MTV upfronts, where the network's programming plans were discussed and the cast of the controversial series "Skins" announced that "Beavis and Butt-Head" will be returning this summer.
"Solid day in NYC," Bieber, 16, tweeted. "Played hoops and just went to the MTV Upfronts...BEAVIS and BUTTHEAD are coming back!!!"
"Beavis and Butt-Head," which centered around two immature, giggling high school students, originally ran on MTV from 1993 to 1997, and became a comic book, movie and video game, reports MTV News.
More recently, the characters appeared in the MTV-produced "Jackass 3D," perhaps as a tease for their return to the small screen.
Are you ready for "Beavis and Butt-Head" to make a comeback?
