We tally up the duo’s deeds in the box office and in stores

Posted on

Okay, so it’s not exactly the last episode of M*A*S*H. Still, the Nov. 28 series finale of Beavis and Butt-head will be a historic occasion. After all, during their four years on MTV, the dumb-as-dirt duo left an indelible stain on the pop-cultural landscape. To that end, here’s a tribute to the boys. (Huh-huh, we said ”end.”)

Number of videos mocked in those cartoons: 550*

Number of episodes featuring the Great Cornholio: 4

Number of guest-voice appearances by David Spade: 2 (as Mr. Manners in 1994’s ”Manners Suck” and Mr. Candy in 1995’s ”Candy Sale”)

Number of spin-offs: 1 (MTV’s Daria)

Box office gross for the 1996 feature Beavis and Butt-head Do America: $63 million

Number of unbilled voice performances in the movie: 6 (Cloris Leachman, Demi Moore, Bruce Willis, Greg Kinnear, Robert Stack, and David Letterman)

Number of The Beavis and Butt-head Experience CDs sold to date: 1.5 million

Number of companies holding licenses for B&B products: 33

Number of times the duo were referred to as ”Buffcoat and Beaver”: 1 (by Democratic senator Ernest Hollings during 1993 congressional hearings on television violence)
