Uhh... Uh huh huh huh...

Hide your kids, hide your wives -- Beavis and Butt-Head are returning to your TV screen!

Comedy Central has announced their return with news of a reboot of the classic '90s animated series with the show's original creator Mike Judge at the helm providing the stories, production, and voices for both iconic, idiotic characters.

"It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again," Judge told Variety.

“We are thrilled to be working with Mike Judge and the great team at 3 Arts again as we double down on Adult Animation at Comedy Central” says Chris McCarthy, president of Entertainment & Youth Group at ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks. “Beavis and Butt-Head were a defining voice of a generation, and we can’t wait to watch as they navigate the treacherous waters of a world light-years from their own.”

The show was originally launched in 1993 on MTV, and featured the duo getting into all sorts of trouble in their quest to become famous and get chicks for seven seasons before being axed. The network brought it back in 2011 for another try, but since then the pair have been silent. In the new version, Beavis and Butt-Head will likely get into the same hijinx, only with the unique shades of today like social media and on-demand entertainment to color their world.

Creative fount Mike Judge was far from silent over the years, however. His most recent co-creation was the widely popular HBO comedy series Silicon Valley and is perhaps best known for his hit animated comedy King of the Hill on Fox, as well as his work on the cult classic films Office Space and Idiocracy.
