In honor of Beavis and Butt-head returning to MTV this summer, we’ve selected clips highlighting some of the show’s great moments. Mike Judge may have a hard time living up to the show’s nostalgic effects. Anyone who grew up during the peak of Beavis and Butt-head’s popularity can relate to working at a fast-food restaurant—and believing that was incredibly mature. And relate to laughing at the word “wood” (although we haven’t completely outgrown that phase). Heh, heh.

1. The Pilot
The Beavis and Butt-head pilot featured music from Milli Vanilli, Guns ‘N’ Roses, Dire Straits, KISS and Wilson Phillips. If you thought the show’s later episodes had a crude aesthetic, just take a look at the backgrounds. Oh, and they play baseball with a frog.
2. Episode One
The first Beavis and Butt-head episode featured an ‘80s music video for “Let’s Get Physical” and The Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated.” Beavis wears a Slayer T-shirt instead of Metallica.
3. “Evolution Sucks”
The duo imagines what life would be like in prehistoric times. Grunt.
4. “Couch Fishing”
After seeing a piranha nature documentary, Beavis and Butt-head decide to go fishing—from their couch.
5. “Customers Suck”
Beavis and Butt-head work at Burger World, a fast-food restaurant every once in a while. Well, “work” is relative…
6. “The Greatest Heroes of Our Time”
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.)
