In honor of Beavis and Butt-head returning to MTV this summer, we’ve selected clips highlighting some of the show’s great moments.

An epic movie-trailer-esque montage with an extremely dramatic, operatic score… and clips like Butt-head kicking Beavis in the crotch.

7. “Vaya Cornholio”
The great Cornholio emerges… (You have to click on the link; embedding is disabled by request. It’s still completely worth it.)
