Many of us remember a time before the reality show pandemic. A time when shows had to be written and somehow Ren & Stimpy was an acceptable show for children. Lately, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim has been the haven for 90’s TV enthusiasts like us. They’ve brought back a few classics, some neverending anime and even created some awesome new cult hits like Robot Chicken and Metalacolpyse.
However, watching King of the Hill always makes me hunger for the good ‘ol Beavis and Butthead days. I know I’m a little bit late on this story but in case you haven’t heard because you’ve given up on watching MTV like me, B&B are back with new episodes! The dynamic duo of all things delinquent and unsavory will once again grace my television screen! I can’t wait to see them in HD. MTV is also spearheading a new animated series called Good Vibes based on a chubby young man who has just moved to California, I intend to give it a shot.
As for MTV’s older, and far more depressing sibling VH1, the lazy day favorite Pop Up Video will be making a triumphant return as well. Something tells me with the upgraded technology we have these days, Pop UP Video could become a serious sensation all over again.
Here’s hoping these channels continue to tweak their lineups with more original content. I would say it’s gonna take some patience, the MTV/VH1 comeback is gonna be a lot harder than Brittany Spears’s. There’s a lot more damage to come back from.
