Who Are the Coolest Animated TV Celebs?
"Beavis and Butt-Head"
"Beavis and Butt-Head"
The 1990s couch potatoes will return this summer to critique Lady Gaga, "Jersey Shore" and YouTube videos.
It's hard to say who's cooler: Rebellious 10-year-old Bart or doughnut-loving Homer. Together with Marge, Lisa and Maggie, they've enjoyed more than 21 years of success on America's longest-running sitcom. D'oh!
The "South Park" kids
The four "South Park" kids -- Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny -- have been called "America's best source of rapid-fire satire," even though they're more crude than cuddly.
The "Family Guy" family
The dysfunctional Griffin family has redefined what it means to push the envelope.
The "Scooby-Doo" gang
Growing up, we always wanted to be just like Daphne and date Fred -- while Velma was geek chic before it was cool, and Shaggy may have been pop culture's first (secret) pothead. Scooby Snacks, anyone?
Teenage Daria didn't even try to hide her cynicism behind her glasses. High school hasn't been the same since.
"Archie" and the gang
Archie finally chose Veronica over Betty after almost 70 years of indecision. But the gang still rocks out with Reggie and Jughead.
"The Powerpuff Girls"
Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles use their superpowers to defend their town from villains and giant monsters. Have you ever met three cooler kindergarteners?
"I was eating Fruit Loops and Cap'n Crunch out of the box and flipping through the dials when a Lady Gaga video came on," MTV president Van Toffler told Rolling Stone. "I felt like there was a whole crop of new artists — and what the world sorely missed was the point of view that only Beavis and Butt-Head could bring."
When the show returns this summer, B & B will also exclaim "That rules!" and "That sucks!" over "Jersey Shore," UFC matches and user-generated videos from YouTube, in addition to the music videos of yesteryear.
Just what the world needed -- Beavis and Butt-Head commenting on "silly videos of cats playing music."
While young MTV viewers may welcome the changes, 30-something fans will be happy to know that Beavis and Butt-Head haven't aged a day in the last 14 years.
"They're the same boneheads sitting on the same couch, commenting on things through a really simple prism," Toffler said.
