Beavis and Butt-head in Virtual Stupidity (Japanese: ビーバス＆バットヘッド ヴァーチャル・アホ症候群 Bībasu Ando Battoheddo: Vācharu Aho Shōkōgun) is a point and click adventure computer game based on the American animated television series created by Mike Judge, Beavis and Butt-head, that was developed and published by Viacom New Media. It was released on August 31, 1995.
It featured vocals from the series' cast of voice actors, including Mike Judge. Besides the main game, four mini-games are featured, called Hock-A-Loogie, Court Chaos, Bug Justice, and Air Guitar.
The main game plots the two main characters, Beavis and Butt-head, trying to get into Todd's gang. Over the course of the game, they have to complete tasks and explore areas in the fictional town of Highland, Texas.
The game starts with Beavis and Butt-head working at Burger World. They are met by Todd, who threatens them. Despite this, Beavis and Butt-head like Todd because of his power and consider him "cool." They decide to try to join Todd's gang.
At Highland High, the duo are forced to stay in Science Class and dissect a frog. Eventually, they manage to skip class after lying to the science teacher that they are going to the bathroom. They manage to slip from school after spitting on Principal McVicker from the school rooftop, causing him to leave the school entrance.
From then on, Beavis and Butt-head explore various areas from Highland, including their house, BurgerWorld, the park, and Maxi-Mart, completing various tasks, in order to get closer to Todd and his gang.
