Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of characters appearing on the MTV cartoon series Beavis and Butt-head, each with a description. Some of these characters appear in only one or two episodes. The episodes in which they are known to appear are listed in italics. Other characters with smaller and/or less significant roles sometimes bear the likenesses of some of the characters listed below.

Voiced by guest stars[edit]

  • Homeless man (Bobcat Goldthwait): First seen briefly in a drunken stupor behind Maxi-Mart, where he trades his booze for the duo's old doughnuts (Party). He later teaches Beavis and Butt-head the art of panhandling (Beavis, Can You Spare a Dime?), after noticing that pedestrians are more charitable toward him after mistaking the duo for his children. He often respectively refers to Beavis and Butt-head as "Mr. Goodnight Hairdo" and "Turd Boy."
  • Mr. Manners/Mr. Candy (David Spade): Mr. Manners is an educational speaker who initially comes to Highland High to teach the students proper etiquette (Manners Suck). He returns as Mr. Candy, promoting a fundraising drive for the school (Candy Sale). In each episode, he instantly clashes with Beavis and Butt-head. Beavis exacts revenge by accusing Mr. Manners of striking him or trying to molest him. When Mr. Manners fights back, he gets into a confrontation with Mr. Van Driessen. Mr. Candy fares much worse in a fight with Coach Buzzcut, who repeatedly kicks him in the face. It is implied that he became an educational speaker only for the money.
  • Kelly (David Spade): The ticket attendant at Babes R Us, a club where female mud wrestling matches are held. He turns B&B away because they are under age. When they threaten him, he calls the bouncer Thor (see Other below).
  • David Letterman (David Letterman): Letterman appears as himself in Late Night with Butt-head. Prior to coming up with an idea for a television show as a class project that very closely approximates Letterman's show (in their imagination, Butt-head appears as Letterman and Beavis as band leader Paul Shaffer), B&B are watching television at home when Beavis asks Butt-head to "put on that Letter dude." Butt-head switches to Letterman's show just in time for his lead-in for "Top Ten Ways to Break Stuff".
  • Biology Teacher (Laraine Newman): A brunette female teacher who replaces Mrs. Dickie in the 2011 revival episodes (Dumb Design, Copy Machine and School Test).

Highland High faculty and staff[edit]

  • Principal McVicker: the principal of Highland High School. McVicker suffers from extreme nervous tension caused by having to deal with Beavis and Butt-head. He is the character who hates the duo more than anyone else. He speaks with a New York accent, constantly shakes, his voice is strained, and he keeps a bottle of Old Crow whiskey in his desk, from which he drinks even when people are present. McVicker also has a bottle of pills that he keeps in his desk and also will use (by the handful) in public. He also has threatened to kill Beavis and Butt-head. Most commonly, he also refers to the duo as little bastards. When Beavis and Butt-Head are assumed to be dead in the last episode, McVicker organizes a teachers' party. When they show up at a memorial fund-raiser though, McVicker suffers a heart attack. Coach Buzzcut attempts to resuscitate him, but whether he survives or not is intentionally left ambiguous, as the episode ends before that question can be answered.
  • Coach Buzzcut: is in charge of Physical Education, Math, and Science, the angry, loud-mouthed, antisocial Buzzcut dislikes Beavis and Butt-Head nearly as much as Principal McVicker. His attitude clearly indicates that he has a military background in the United States Marine Corps.
  • David Van Driessen: the boys' teacher and is characterized as an extremely liberal hippie. Specifically, he is a pacifist, concerned about environmental protection, believes in aid for foreign countries, and women's rights. His voice is provided by Mike Judge.[1][2][3][4] He has a beard, long hair, and wears a peace sign t-shirt and flip-flops. He generally speaks in a soft, gentle voice, encourages his students to get in touch with their feelings, and often plays folk songs on his guitar. He has a habit of ending nearly every sentence with "M'Kay?", the M'Kay predicate would later be used in South Park, made by Viacom/CBS's other subsidiary Comedy Central.[5] Van Driessen has had many near-death experiences during the course of the show (often, as a direct result of Beavis and Butt-Head's actions.) Most of the teachers at Highland High School despise Beavis and Butt-Head, but Van Driessen sympathizes with them and believes them to be somehow capable of salvation. His attempts to appeal to their better sides, however, invariably fail.[4] In the series finale Beavis & Butt-Head Are Dead, in which the boys are mistakenly assumed to be deceased, Van Driessen is the only teacher who expresses sadness, going as far as to cry and express disbelief when the announcement is made. All his colleagues celebrate with a party.
  • School nurse: A heavy-set woman with thick glasses, a mole on her chin, and a traditional nursing dress and cap, she provides medical attention to Beavis and Butt-head, such as when the duo get head lice (Head Lice), and when Beavis severs his finger in wood shop (Woodshop). A character of similar appearance and voice appears as a worker at an animal shelter who waives the $50 adoption fee for B&B to take a stray dog because of the dog's aggressive behavior (Bad Dog).
  • Janitor/crazy farmer: Shown in different contexts; besides Highland High, he is once shown as the janitor at the local mall who calls Beavis and Butt-head "a couple of dumbasses" (Beavis and Butt-head's Island). In these contexts he seems to simply be an ordinary old man. In Cow Tipping and Bungholio: Lord of the Harvest, he is portrayed as a slow-witted, bluish-skinned farmer who is dangerously senile. On both occasions, he appears to be attempting to decapitate Beavis with a chainsaw. In A Great Day, he appears at the entry door of Highland High as B&B try to enter during a holiday to tell them that the school is closed. In The Great Cornholio, Beavis walks past him in the hallway after assuming his Cornholio persona, but he does not speak to Beavis. In Virtual Stupidity, it is revealed that he works a second job as a clown. Voiced by Kristofor Brown.
  • Mrs. Dickie: A female science teacher at Highland, and occasional customer at Burger World. She is annoyed by Beavis and Butt-head, particularly by their incessant laughing when she tries to teach sex education (No Laughing). She forces Daria Morgendorffer to work with them in Scientific Stuff, in the hope of getting a proper experiment out of the lads. She appears less frequently as the series progresses. In Citizen Butt-head, Butt-head tells President Clinton that he "pitched a tent in Mrs. Dickie's class" (probably a euphemism for getting an erection). Voiced by Penelope Trud.
  • Mr. Herrera: A middle-aged Latino Spanish teacher who hates Beavis and Butt-head, because the only Spanish they know is what they hear at Taco Bell (and Beavis can't even get that right!) (No Laughing). Beavis and Butt-head always mispronounce his name. His most prominent appearances are in No Laughing and The Great Cornholio. He appears briefly sitting on the stage in PTA, smoking in the faculty lounge in Steamroller, at the teachers' lounge party in Beavis and Butt-head Are Dead, and at the town hall meeting in Dumb Design. He is one of the teachers who volunteers to prepare B&B for aptitude testing in School Test. Voiced by Sam Johnson.
  • Jim the Substitute: A substitute teacher who briefly takes over when Mr. Van Driessen injures himself attempting to assume the lotus position on his desk (Substitute). Beavis, Butt-head, and other classmates take an immediate liking to him on account of his free-spirited, unorthodox way of running the class. Despite the duo's cynicism and irresponsibility, he continues to like them. He is injured when Beavis and Butt-head fail to catch him when he falls backward off the desk in a trust exercise. He is based on a teacher who Mike Judge had while attending Saint Pius High School named Mr. Zuber.[6] A character of identical appearance is shown standing on the edge of the crowd in front of the school in Beavis and Butt-head are Dead, as one of the teachers who tries to prepare B&B for aptitude tests in School Test, and at the town hall meeting in Dumb Design. Voiced by Julián Rebolledo (who later voiced Daria's father Jake in the spin-off series, Daria).
  • Dreama: A young woman who meets the boys in the school nurse's office after the two are sent there due to their poor personal hygiene (Let's Clean It Up). She dances, plays Hindustani music on a tape player, and ultimately gives an oil massage to the two, much to their delight. It is later revealed that Dreama is a teacher's aide, and her actions are attributed to a daze that ensues after she suffers a concussion.
  • Dr. Floss: A psychiatrist who is hired at Highland High (They're Coming to Take Me Away, Huh Huh). She requests to see the duo in her office immediately after introducing herself in Mr. Buzzcut's class. She gives the boys a Rorschach inkblot test, with the boys interpreting each picture as a man masturbating. When shown a signed photo of Julio Iglesias (grasping a microphone stand protruding from between his legs), Butt-head describes it as "just a bunch of weird shapes." She sends them to an inpatient psychiatric facility.
  • Ms. Jenkins: The school's speech therapist (Speech Therapy). Beavis and Butt-head wind up in her class because they return from suspension on a day when Mr. Van Driessen has taken his class to the botanical gardens, and Principal McVicker needs a class to put them in. They thoroughly enjoy her class as they misinterpret what she is teaching. They mistake a diagram of the vocal cords for a vagina. Butt-head also uses the mirror given to him to observe his mouth while he speaks to try to look up her dress. They also mishear things said during speech exercises. They mistake the phrase "as much" for "assmunch", and the phrase "but whole" for "butthole". McVicker becomes angry when the boys repeat these words after Ms. Jenkins asks them to show him what they learned in class. She intervenes before he assaults them. A character of identical appearance is shown on the teachers' side at the town hall meeting in Dumb Design.
  • Mr. Dick Gaylord: The school's career counselor, who has trouble coming up with a suitable career path for either of the duo in The Future of Beavis and Butt-head. The duo refer to him by his first name.
  • Tonya: The teacher of the Gifted Class (Young, Gifted and Crude). B&B are sent to her class when they inexplicably score very high on a written test. Her class is very unstructured. When Butt-head tells her "I have to whizz (urinate)", she says "Your language is so raw and vital." B&B eventually wind up being returned to their regular class.


Classmates in Beavis and Butt-head included:[citation needed]

  • Stewart: a heavyset, nerdy is usually depicted wearing a Winger t-shirt (as opposed to the heavier Metallica and AC/DC shirts that Beavis and Butthead wore). He likes to think of himself as Beavis and Butt-head's friend, although the pair really do not like him and usually mock him. He does not seem to remember how badly they treat him between incidents, or does not care about their maltreatment if he does remember it. Stewart's worshipful attitude towards the contemtptuous duo mirrors how Beavis & Butt-head relate to someone who despises them, gang leader Todd. Frequently, when caught committing some sort of outrageous prank, Beavis and Butt-head blame (or frame) Stewart ("He threatened to hit us" or "Stewart got us the porn"), which is quite often believed, even though Stewart is far more passive and smaller than the pair.
  • Positive Acting Teens (PATs): A group of goody-good honor-student caricatures who are friends with Stewart. In Dumb Design, Stewart is shown wearing a PAT T-shirt, whereas previously he was friends with PAT members but he did not appear to be a member of the group. The PATs are led by Mr. Max Graham (see Local Residents below), the father of one of their members. Beavis and Butt-head are forced to accompany the group to pick up litter along a highway as an alternative to detention (Patsies). Beavis finds a hubcap and he and Butt-head throw it back and forth to each other across the highway, like a frisbee. The flying hubcap strikes an oncoming truck and hits Mr. Graham in the head, knocking him unconscious (although everyone believes that he is dead). Butt-head steals his wallet while he is lying face down on the ground. The PATs are then forced to wash and wax Buzzcut's truck while Mr. Graham tries unsuccessfully to get B&B to return his wallet. In Party, the PATs accompany Stewart to Beavis and Butt-head's party and unsuccessfully try to get Beavis and Butt-head to come to their youth group's cookout. In Dumb Design Mr. Graham and the PATs are leading a protest to force Highland High to teach intelligent design in addition to evolution in science classes. B&B join the protest because they believe that his message is actually that they shouldn't have to learn anything they cannot understand – which is practically anything. The PATs and Mr. Graham are voiced by Guy Maxtone-Graham.
  • Cassandra: Mainly a parody of hippie or New Age thought (like Mr. Van Driessen). She wears glasses, Dr. Martens boots, and a shapeless blue dress. In Late Night With Butt-head, she is shown wearing a white top with a unicorn on it. She is the only girl aside from Daria who does not seem to despise either of the boys. In Wall of Youth, Butt-head attempts to flirt with her briefly, but she is oblivious to his interest because of his immaturity. In Animation Sucks, she gives the boys friendly advice without the condescending sarcasm Daria would use. Voiced by Tracy Grandstaff.
  • Earl: Usually sits in the front row of class looking at pictures of nude women in a men's magazine. He has a buzz cut hair-style, a tough angular face with a stubbly goatee, and a black shirt buttoned tightly at the collar (in some episodes, a black jacket with a white T-shirt underneath). Earl is a central character in Incognito, in which he tries to kill Beavis and Butt-head. In the end he is punished by Mr. Van Driessen, who confiscates his pistol, which makes him cry. In Pierced, Beavis and Butt-head mock Earl's earring, causing him to beat them up, but then the duo decide to get their own ears pierced when they notice the earring has a skull design. These two episodes are among the few in which Earl actually speaks. In Teen Talk he appears on stage, but says nothing when Captain Dick Jackman asks him what makes him "really, really mad". He appears regularly in the Marvel comic, with many speaking parts and he is shown as a member of Todd Ianuzzi's gang. Voiced by Dean Julian.
  • Kimberly: A pretty girl who is often the object of unwanted attention from Beavis and Butt-head. She refuses to practice CPR on them during Buzzcut's swimming class (Water Safety). The duo file an unsuccessful sexual harassment suit against her on the grounds that she is giving them "stiffies" (Sexual Harassment). In Crisis Line she calls the duo unknowingly to ask for relationship advice. Butt-head recommends that she have sex the next day with anyone who is polite to her. She introduces the pair to her boyfriend, who promptly grabs them and throws them across the room. In Whiplash Beavis tries to chat with her on the school bus prior to the accident that he and Butt-head have set up to try to get money for being injured. Although not named, a character of identical appearance sits in the front row of the theater in front of B&B as they watch a Twilight movie in the opening scene of Werewolves of Highland.
  • Dean Zunker: A chubby boy with glasses and brown hair. In Wall of Youth, he talks to Beavis and Butt-head about Jurassic Park which Butt-head believes is a true story. In Substitute he presents Jim, the substitute teacher, with a collage based upon the Walt Whitman poem "Cavalry Crossing a Ford" that the class worked together after school to make for him. In Wet Behind the Rears he talks to B&B in the locker room, expressing surprise that they are going to actually take a shower (which they are trying very hard to get out of). They head into the shower with their briefs still on when Mr. Buzzcut approaches them and asks them why they still have their underwear on. At that point the fire alarm goes off and Buzzcut ushers them out of the school building in front of the entire school in only their underwear. He and Principal McVicker laugh at the sight, with Buzzcut saying "Another few seconds and they might have been naked." Dean is one of the few students who does not appear to hate Beavis and Butt-head, and he is possibly the only regular character who is not rude and insulting to them. In Bus Trip Mr. Van Driessen calls the last name "Zunker" as Dean boards the bus for a field trip to Mount Perdido. A similar character named Martin appears in "Young, Gifted, and Crude" and Virtual Stupidity.
  • Hiroshi "Hiro" Nakayama: An exchange student from Japan. Beavis and Butt-head become Hiro's chaperons who are tasked with guiding Hiro through American culture (Foreign Exchange). Hiro impresses them by triggering flashbacks from Mr. Anderson, who was a prisoner of war during World War II (Anderson refers to him as Colonel Imoto, immediately before mistaking Hiro and B&B for Marines who have come to rescue him). Upon arriving back in Japan, it becomes apparent that he has picked up Beavis and Butt-head's masturbatory habits and affinity for metal music, much to his family's dismay.
  • Tommy: The resident jock of the school. In Spanish Fly he consumes the Spanish fly that Beavis and Butt-head pour into what they believe is an attractive girl's milk carton. Tommy drinks it instead. As a result, the duo mistakenly believe that he wants to have sex with them. This fear manifests itself in the locker room and during gym class when Tommy chooses Beavis as his wrestling opponent. The match begins with Tommy dominating until Beavis kicks him in the testicles at Butt-head's suggestion. Voiced by Dean Julian.
  • Martin: Slim, bespectacled, brown-haired filmmaking aficionado. He wears a black T-shirt with a white skull on it. He films B&B as they eat only Burger World food for 30 days as part of a class project - although B&B's motivation is to become famous and get "chicks" (Supersize Me). He appears several times in the crowd of assembled students outside Highland High School in Beavis and Butt-head Are Dead. He is also one of Ms. Jenkins' "speech team" (Speech Therapy), and one of the group that Van Driessen takes to the art gallery (Butt Is It Art?). He is one of the classmates who takes a field trip to Fort Sawyer to investigate possible military careers (Drones). In Rabies Scare he asks Beavis if he can foam at the mouth when he comes to class with an exposed dog bite on his leg. Butt-head then puts Alka-Seltzer tablets in Beavis' mouth.
  • Daniel Butkis: A teenager with blonde hair and glasses. Beavis and Butthead laugh at his last name during roll call (No Laughing). Daniel soon takes advantage of the duo during Buzzcut's roll call by laughing at them, after learning they can't laugh for a week or they risk expulsion. He also appears in Politically Correct, asking Beavis and Butthead if they will help to pay for football uniforms.
  • Classmates: Other unnamed but frequently appearing students include a black male who is always seen listening to his headphones; a white male with long blond hair who is usually sleeping; a punk girl with blonde and black hair who is always doing her nails during class; and a boy with glasses and shoulder-length red hair usually seen wearing a Led Zeppelin shirt.
  • Gina: Another girl who is often the object of unwanted attention by the duo, Gina is Todd's girlfriend and works in a beauty salon (Top O' The Mountain). She has brunette hair in a vaguely heavily hair sprayed 1980s metalhead style. Being Beavis and Butthead's classmate, she is not fond of them, showing her dislike in many instances, belittling them when they attempt to run for school office and she gives them a dollar to stay away from her. She also has a car which she uses to stage a quick getaway when cornered at the gas station (Beavis and Butt-head vs. the Vending Machine). In Scratch 'N' Win she gives B&B a dollar to leave her alone. They buy a lottery ticket and win $500, which they use to buy a riding lawn mower. In Virtual Stupidity, she is revealed to also be an accomplice in crime with Todd, holding on to his car keys and providing cover for him.

Local residents[edit]

Local residents in Beavis and Butt-head included:[citation needed]

  • Todd Ianuzzi: violent criminal and a role model to Beavis and Butt-head even though his contempt for them is clear. He takes any opportunity to use the boys for money or beat them for troubling him with their affection. Although Todd verbally and physically abuses them the boys continue to seek him out. He is voiced by Rottilio Michieli.
  • Mr. Stevenson: Stewart's father, a middle-aged male. In early episodes, he is a teacher at Highland High (No Laughing, Citizen Butt-head) and presumably quit teaching after being fed up by Beavis and Butt-head's behavior. Later he is a businessman, judging from his cell phone and references to "the office" (Prank Call). He is a regular victim of Beavis and Butt-head's destructive shenanigans, such as having his house blown up (Stewart's House) or vandalized and robbed (Stewart Moves Away), wrecking and overturning his car when B&B simultaneously wave through traffic on both intersecting streets during a blackout (Blackout!), or having his phone forcefully inserted into his rectum when Beavis and Butt-head accidentally lead prank-call victim Harry Sachz to his house (Prank Call). He tries to come off as a caring and responsible family man, but he reveals his cowardly nature in times of distress, invariably trying to shift blame to Stewart. He has a large collection of pornographic magazines, which Beavis and Butt-head know the exact location of. It is implied that he is impotent in Sperm Bank when he visits Stork in a Bottle Sperm Bank with his wife. In A Very Special Episode he rushes B&B to the animal hospital when they find a wounded baby bird. He takes them to a park to release the bird when, against their wishes, its condition improves. Butt-head flips it into the air, and it promptly falls to the ground as the pair walk away. He is also shown as a customer at Burger World who becomes frustrated when neither Beavis nor Butt-head can tell him whether the milk shakes are made with shake mix or milk and ice cream (Customers Suck). Voiced by Mike Judge.
  • Mrs. Stevenson: Stewart's mother and good-natured housewife, who is depicted as an airhead. In Stewart's House, she has a Southern accent, but for the rest of the series, she possesses a thick Upper Midwestern accent. She enlists the duo's help when Stewart disappears (Stewart Is Missing), and she trusts them to take his homework to school for him when he is sick (The Great Cornholio). She believes that Beavis and Butt-head are good friends to Stewart, being oblivious to their antics and their negative influence on him. In Plate Frisbee, she shows incredible trust (misplaced, of course) by serving cookies to Stewart and the boys on a plate she describes as "17th Century antique". Inspired by watching a discus thrower in the Olympics, B&B throw the plate back and forth like a frisbee, and it eventually shatters in Stewart's hand after a series of unlikely mishaps that should break it but doesn't. In TV Violence, she finally displays some anger toward the two. The Stevensons buy a satellite dish and B&B gravitate toward the violent programs. She tires of their protests when she repeatedly changes the channel to less violent programs and throws them out of the house. In Leave it to Beavis, she portrays June Cleaver in a parody of Leave it to Beaver (with Butt-head as Ward Cleaver, Stewart as Lumpy, Todd as Eddie Haskell and Beavis as Beaver). In keeping with the format and feel of the original series, which aired on network television from 1957 to 1963, this episode was filmed in black and white. In the Christmas episode It's a Miserable Life, she is overheard praying to God for help because Beavis and Butt-head are a bad influence on Stewart. The duo pay her little respect or attention except in regard to her breasts. Voiced by Tracy Grandstaff.
  • Lolita and Tanqueray: Two skimpily-dressed trailer-trash vamps, always introduced with the line "I'm Lolita, and this here's Tanqueray" in a heavy Texas accent. Lolita has dark hair and Tanqueray is a blonde. In Date Bait, they exploit their sexuality to manipulate the duo out of their money and movie tickets, promising to let them in the back door (which they never do as B&B wait outside in the rain). Over the course of the series, the two drastically change appearance, with Lolita originally having much darker skin. In Teen Talk, they want to make out with B&B, but the show host bothers them with questions long enough that two members of the production crew beat them to it. In Teen Talk, it is revealed that Lolita (and possibly Tanqueray) starred in a pornographic video which her principal rented. In Tornado, Lolita and Tanqueray ask Beavis and Butthead to "be our last boyfriends on earth" before a tornado strikes, but they are blown away to the Land of Oz before anything happens. B&B assume that they died in the tornado.
  • Redneck woman: This unnamed woman appears a number of times. She is usually sitting in a messy trailer with rollers in her hair, unshaven legs, circular bandages over the corns on her feet and often a cigarette hanging out of her mouth. She has an old husband who smokes and wears shorts (his appearance could be considered a prototype for King of the Hill character Dale Gribble), and a sallow-looking son with a distinct Southern accent. In 1-900-BEAVIS, she makes money by imitating a sexy female on a phone-sex hotline. In Temporary Insanity and Whiplash, a character of very similar appearance but different voice appears as Beavis and Butt-head's school bus driver. In Tired, she sits in front of her trailer in a lawn chair with her feet propped up on a cardboard box as Beavis rolls down a hill in a giant tire and Butt-head runs past chasing him. She threatens to shoot them if they ever step on her property again. In Radio Sweethearts, she is shown in the same lawn chair, listening to the radio when the boys guest DJ.
  • Billy Bob: An early recurring character. An obese redneck, Billy Bob is often shown wearing only a cowboy hat and briefs. He appears fully clothed in Heroes as the owner of a skeet shooting establishment. He wears stereotypical redneck clothes such as a tight-fitting green T-shirt, white jeans and cowboy boots. He often smokes a cigar. In Bedpans & Broomsticks he is shown walking on a treadmill, dressed only in briefs and a cowboy hat, puffing a cigar and fantasizing about food while a doctor and nurse observe him. When B&B steal his scooter he chases after them (even smashing through a brick wall to get them), then he collapses after suffering an apparent heart attack. B&B revive him by shocking him with an electrical cord. They steal $11 out of his wallet. Voiced by Mike Judge.
  • Biker Lady: An attractive yet gruff-looking female motorcycle rider who appears in Friday Night. She uses the boys as accessories to shoplift items at Maxi-Mart. The boys cooperate in hopes that they will "score" with her. Once the owner suspects, she escapes by throwing hot coffee in his face and taking the boys along for a ride on her chopper (motorcycle) before abandoning them to seek her own adventures.
  • Mistress Koura Anthrax: An elderly dominatrix who is featured in Door to Door. When the boys ring her doorbell requesting charity money, she invites them in only to ambush them, chain them to the wall, and begin whipping and dominating them. In exchange for the time the boys spend with her, she donates a check for $100. She writes a letter to Mr. Van Driessen (which he reads aloud to the whole class) saying that he can send Beavis and Butt-head over to her place any time they need more donations. She appears twice in the spin-off comics, both owning a strip club and being headmistress of a private school, and also answering a letter's page; she didn't recognise the lads. In the comics, her first name is spelled "Cora".
  • Harry Sachz: A tall, physically imposing man with a receding hairline and mullet haircut, he endures several weeks of prank calls after Beavis and Butt-head randomly select him out of a new phone book. The duo find his name amusing and they refer to him as "Hairy Sack [scrotum]". The calls involve the flushing of a toilet and scatological noises (Prank Call). Sachz eventually purchases a caller ID to obtain their phone number. He then calls them, telling them that they have won a free pizza and he offers to deliver it in order to find out where they live, but they cannot remember their address. When Sachz asks them to read the address off their mail, Butt-head reads Stewart's name and address off some mail he and Beavis stole from the Stevensons' mailbox, and Stewart's father suffers the consequences. In Nothing Happening he is shot by police when they believe he is armed and his body is carried away on a stretcher. In Butt Flambe a character with the same appearance, who has been shot three times, is sitting in the waiting room at the hospital. He is referred to as Mr. Borman. He later dies then Butt-head, pretending to be a doctor, takes the bullets removed from his body. In Doomsday an unnamed character of similar appearance returns home after an evacuation to find Beavis and Butthead living in his house. He attacks them for trespassing.
  • Tom Anderson: is an older man, presumably of post-retirement age, who lives with his wife Marcy near Beavis and Butt-Head in Highland. As mentioned in Screamers, Anderson's address is 4120 Woodrow Court. Anderson is very conservative and he frequently makes reference to his days in the military, usually in a futile attempt to teach Beavis and Butt-Head the ethics of hard work and discipline. He is primarily the target of pranks, although occasionally Beavis and Butt-Head attempt to do Anderson a favor. His voice is provided by Mike Judge, who says Anderson is based on every middle-aged authority figure he knew growing up in New Mexico.
  • Marcie Anderson: Tom Anderson's wife. She appears in Beavis and Butt-head Do America, and she also has cameos in a few episodes. She and Tom are shown holding hands walking past the church where a wedding is taking place in Here Comes the Bride's Butt. In Good Credit she accompanies Tom to a war veterans reunion where he cannot check into the hotel because B&B have his credit card and charge multiple animals at a pet store. In Shopping Cart she and Tom are shown getting into their RV in a grocery store parking lot. B&B come up with the idea of deliberately getting hit by cars to make money after a driver backs into Butt-head in a shopping cart and then gives him $10 not to report it. Their scheme goes awry when the cart gets caught on the trailer hitch and they are dragged behind the RV at high speed until the cart is flung off into a tree when the Andersons round a corner. Her appearance could be considered a prototype for King of the Hill character Peggy Hill.
  • Max Graham: Leader of the Positive Acting Teens (see Classmates above) and the father of one of their members. His most prominent appearances are in Patsies and Dumb Design. A character of identical appearance and voice is seen returning home after a trip with his family after B&B ring the doorbell twice and run away, then no one answers (Ding Dong Ditch). He also appears as a customer at Burger World who is left waiting at the counter while Butt-head tries to injure Beavis to get worker's compensation money (Work Is Death). He appears in the crowd in front of Highland High in Beavis and Butt-head are Dead. A character of identical appearance and voice drives the Municipal Waste Management van past B&Bs house looking for a sewage leak after they break their sewer line digging for oil in the yard (Beaverly Buttbillies). A character of identical appearance and voice is also seen taking his young son trick-or-treating (Bungholio: Lord of the Harvest). Voiced by Guy Maxtone-Graham.
  • Dennis: An alcoholic who addresses Mr. Buzzcut's class on the dangers of alcohol abuse (Dumbasses Anonymous). He tells the class that he lost his home, his family and his business due to his drinking. B&B decide to visit Rolling Hills, the drug and alcohol treatment facility where Dennis attends counseling sessions, hoping that the people there can help them to get beer. After B&B tell the receptionist that they have had trouble getting beer, she places them in Dr. Steve's (see White collar workers below) support group for alcoholics. B&B describe beer in increasingly appealing terms (obviously lifted from commercial advertising) until the entire group walks out of the session to go to a bar down the street. In Garage Band an unnamed character of identical appearance and voice is the manager of a motel looking for a lounge band. B&B watch a program in which a rock musician talks about playing in a garage, which gives them the idea to start a band. The two kick Van Driessen's garage door, then tell him that they need a garage to practice in. Helpful as always, he tries to teach them a couple of chords and then leaves them to play on their own. Beavis plays one chord, yells "You're gonna die!", then he smashes Van Driessen's acoustic guitar on the garage floor. Butt-head says "We're on our way!" They see a sign at a local motel saying "Band Wanted". They tell the manager that they are a band. He hires them, and he tells them that Metallica (which Beavis gives him as the name of their band) "has a nice ring to it." B&B fail to show up after a disagreement over whose name should be listed first, while the motel manager is left to deal with a large, unruly crowd who have shown up expecting to see Metallica. The sign outside advertises "Metallica, Featuring Beavis and Nut-head".
  • Bill: Tom Anderson's next door neighbor, who is putting in a hedge as Tom is repaving his driveway (Steamroller). Bill recommended that Anderson rent a steamroller from Morgan's to do his paving job. While the two of them take a break to drink a beer, B&B take the steamroller (which Anderson has left running because it was difficult to start earlier) and drive it around town looking for Todd. Their destructive path takes them through several yards in the neighborhood, through the main entrance of the Botanical Gardens and through the hallways of Highland High, where they break through the wall of the faculty lounge. By the time Bill and Anderson finish their break B&B have returned the steamroller and turned the engine off, much to Anderson's dismay. B&B have flattened part of Bill's new hedge and spread tar from Anderson's paving project over it. Anderson punches Bill in the resulting argument over paying for the damage. Not to be confused with Bill who runs the bar at the American Legion Hall (see Local business figures below).
  • Dusty: A golfer friend of Tom Anderson who Tom talks to at the clubhouse of a golf course after losing all of his golf balls - which B&B have taken by hiding ahead of him on the course and then swiping each ball that he hits (Mr. Anderson's Balls). Earlier in the episode Dusty is shown instructing another golfer on his swing, and B&B find his use of terms amusing as possible sexual innuendos ("You're pulling your head on every stroke. Let me see your bag", "Here, take your wood and try using a different grip on the shaft"). When he gives B&B a dollar for three golf balls that they found, this gives them the idea to get more balls to make money. Dusty tells Anderson not to waste his money in the pro shop, that "there are a couple of kids (B&B) selling some nice balls real cheap." Anderson winds up buying his own golf balls back from B&B for one dollar each.
  • Concert Girls: Two attractive but rogue vixen-like teenage girls, one with long brunette hair and the other with short black hair, first seen at the metal concert Creatures of Rock sitting on their car in the parking lot in Take A Number. They tell B&B "Maybe we can rage together." B&B mistakenly believe that they can get tickets for the concert even though they have no money. They talk with a slight surfer/valley girl like twang, and share quite a bit in common with Beavis and Butthead, from metal music to being into what is "cool" - and not appearing to be terribly bright. They play a small integral role in the video game Virtual Stupidity. Though laid back and with affinity for the duo, they are also wily and tricky, having tied up and tricked the duo into getting locked in the trunk of Todd's new car and then running off, stealing Leroy's thugs' motorcycles for a thrill.

Local business figures[edit]

  • Burger World Manager: The duo's unnamed manager at Burger World, who they refer to as "that manager dude." Like the boys' other authority figures, he often gets frustrated with their idiocy, with his attempts at instilling discipline proving futile. In Work Is Death, he ends up getting seriously injured by their irresponsibility in their futile attempt to get worker's compensation. In Bathroom Break, when Beavis and Butt-head don't come out of the bathroom, he goes outside to urinate in the parking lot, where he is caught by the police and charged with public urination and indecent exposure. This leads him to run from the cops, who follow close behind. The episode ends as the police call for backup and chase him, so it is unknown if he is caught and arrested. Despite his frustrations, he seems to be one of the few adults who appreciates Beavis and Butt-head, considering the fact that they have yet to be fired for their many antics. Voiced by Mike Judge.
  • Maxi-Mart Owner: This working stiff wears a middle-part hairstyle and he is habitually annoyed by Beavis and Butt-head. The duo often loiter in and around his convenience store while trying to pick up chicks. He occasionally exacts a small measure of revenge. He sells Butt-head day-old insect-infested nachos in Beavis and Butt-head vs. the Vending Machine, and used forks and stale donuts (picked out of the trash can) in Party. One such attempt backfires when he calls the police to report a robbery in progress after Butt-head goes behind the counter and works the cash register while he is in the back office (Another Friday Night). When the police arrive they mistake him for the robber, and he is beaten and then arrested. In Skin Trade B&B try to trade a dead squirrel to him for some nachos, because they are convinced that the fur is valuable. He gives them the nachos to get them to go away. An unnamed character of identical appearance is a customer service representative at Home Labyrinth (a parody of Home Depot) who Tom Anderson asks for the location of Spanish tiles for his new pool cabana (Pool Toys). His annoyed response ("I told you two hours ago...") indicates that Anderson has asked him this same question before. Anderson is shown roaming around the store after it closes, the elusive Spanish tiles on a shelf above him, grousing about "that damned hippie clerk" and his vehicle is towed away. Voiced by Rottilio Michieli.
  • Clark Cobb: A parody of Christian Televangelists and voiced to sound like H. Ross Perot. The owner of Cobb's Family Hardware is a card-carrying member of the Christian Businessmen's Association. He has a sock puppet named Socko, which he uses to try to teach evangelical lessons. He uses a similar sock puppet to talk to trick-or-treaters in Bungholio: Lord of the Harvest. When Daria cons B&B into pledging a large amount of money for a CBA-sponsored walk-a-thon, Clark forces the guys to spend a very long time walking off their debt (Walk-a-Thon). He appears in four issues of the spinoff comic, in two cases having charitable events (one done for press attention) turn destructive after Beavis and Butt-head get involved. A character of identical appearance is shown standing with a group of people in the mall when Japanese exchange student Hiro hocks a loogie that covers the entire group, then he retracts it (Foreign Exchange). In Inventors the boys stop by his house in an attempt to sell him their new "invention", the Butt Scratcher 2000, which in reality is nothing more than a wire coathanger that Butt-head has bent into a hook. He tells them, "Boys, that's just a wire hanger. You know it, I know it and the Lord knows it." Cobb features prominently in Whorehouse, when he organizes a group of Christian activists to protest outside an abortion clinic. He repeatedly chants "Whores! Fornicators!" through his megaphone. B&B interpret this to mean that the establishment is in fact a brothel, and they join the protest in hopes of "scoring". Both they and Cobb are shocked with a taser by a security guard for walking off the public sidewalk onto clinic property. It is revealed in the book Ensucklopedia that he chose to open a hardware business because Jesus Christ was a carpenter. Voiced by Mike Judge.
  • Bill: A heavy-set old man who runs the bar at the American Legion hall that Tom Anderson frequents. Both of them were in the military. Although he never actually meets Beavis and Butt-head, he unwittingly contributes to their antics. When Bill asks Anderson to watch the bar for a few hours (Yard Sale), Anderson puts Beavis and Butt-head in charge of his yard sale. While Anderson is gone, the two sell everything inside his house for $60. In Pool Toys, Anderson brags to Bill that he has found a couple of good workers (B&B) to help around the yard. Bill is not to be confused with the similarly named Billy Bob. Voiced by Clu Gulager.
  • Ric Aaron Joseph: A photographer whose most prominent role was in Dude, A Reward, in which B&B find his lost photography equipment in a local park. The duo take crude, closeup photographs of their own body parts (up their nostrils, down the front of their pants, etc.) before breaking the equipment, then returning it for the reward money. Joseph displays the photos as his own work in a photographic exhibition, winning critical acclaim from those who view them as a work of genius. He is also depicted as the photographer for class pictures for Highland High (Tainted Meat) and as an art instructor (Figure Drawing).
  • Madame Blavatsky: From the episode of the same name, she is a fortune teller who speaks in a faux-East European accent. She attempts to tell Butt-head's future. Beavis seizes her crystal ball and describes a war scene, which she interprets as him having psychic powers and foreseeing the end of the world ("The boy has the sight"), but it is only the reflection of a news broadcast on the television behind him. Her character is based on a real person of Russian origin, Helena Blavatsky.
  • Mr. Blackstone: The owner and operator of Sunny Grove Nudist Colony (Naked Colony). B&B visit Sunny Grove after seeing an ad for it in an adult magazine at Maxi Mart, hoping to see naked women. They talk to Mr. Blackstone (who is naked sitting in his office), and they leave after he mentions the $4,000 annual membership fee. They later climb the wall around the facility and hide behind shrubs as they observe various nudist activities. A woman named Donna approaches them to give them information about the facility. They remain behind the shrubs, their wide-eyed gazes still fixed on the same spot, long after it has gotten dark and everyone else has gone inside.
  • Mr. O'Brien: The man who administers polygraph examinations at Big Eye Systems (Liar! Liar!). The manager at Burger World sends B&B there to be tested because of money missing from the cash register. Butt-head, taking his own advice regarding the "trick" to taking such tests by holding his breath, passes out when he is asked if he has ever stolen anything in his life. Beavis' test follows Butt-head's. His random statement to get a baseline reading, "I killed a bunch of people once", is interpreted by the machine as true. This leads to him being identified on the news as the "Hippie Ripper" who perpetrated the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida slayings in 1969 (undoubtedly a reference to the Charles Manson "Helter Skelter" killings in Hollywood the same year), which were committed before Beavis was born. The police explain this away by saying, "He's very clever."
  • Julia: The technician at Big Eye Systems who applies the leads for polygraph examinations (Liar! Liar!).
  • Dating service manager: This unnamed woman runs Desperate Embrace Dating Service (Vidiots). B&B enter the place looking for dates. She seems oblivious to their insubstantial (and sometimes crass) responses to the dating questionnaire, believing that they are deliberately being funny. She is immediately smitten with Beavis, dropping numerous hints regarding her interest in him. Beavis doesn't pick up on this. He gives her the name "Geraldo" (having earlier seen a Geraldo Rivera program in which a convicted criminal who obtained victims through a dating service says that you shouldn't give your real name when dealing with them - implying that this is why he was caught). Butt-head makes a video in which he refers to himself as a "pleasure machine". The two forget all of this after returning home. When the manager calls for Beavis (under the name Geraldo), Butt-head answers the phone and tells her that "There aren't any Mexicans here", then he complains that she "keeps calling for this Gerondo dude." A young woman comes to the door and says that she is "here to turn on the pleasure machine", to which Beavis replies, "The TV works fine now. The remote just needed some new batteries." Then he slams the door, and complains that all the interruptions make it hard to concentrate on scoring.
  • Misty Lou: The less-than-enthusiastic woman working the counter at Nation's Finest Yoghourt (Yogurt's Cool). B&B go there after seeing a commercial with an attractive woman licking a cone. When they try to get a refund, the manager points to a sign saying that they are not a participating location. This leads B&B to smear their cones all over the mall.

White collar workers[edit]

  • Attorney Joe Adler: A thinly veiled spoof of real-life Houston personal injury lawyer Jim Adler, Joe Adler is a sleazy lawyer specializing in frivolous lawsuits and personal injury cases. In Sexual Harassment, Beavis and Butt-head hire him to sue their classmate Kimberly for sexually harassing them by giving them "stiffies". In Whiplash, the boys (influenced by an Adler TV ad) stage an accident with a school bus in order to "get rich" by claiming a whiplash injury. He is then arrested for 257 counts of fraud. A similar attorney named Joe Adler appeared in Mike Judge's latest film, Extract. He was also a personal injury lawyer. Voiced by Charlie Adler.
  • The Doctor: Highland's unnamed town physician appears several times. In Rabies Scare he is shown as a sadistic individual who gives Beavis unnecessary rabies injections in the abdomen. He reattaches Beavis' severed finger in Woodshop (only to have him pull it back off by picking his nose). He appears as a plastic surgeon in Plastic Surgin, in which the duo believe they are getting "wiener implants" when in fact they are getting nose jobs. In the latter episode the name "Doctor Fisk" appears on the office door. He also appears on a television news program as an expert to explain an incident of contaminated meat at Burger World (Tainted Meat). He also treats the wounds in Beavis' hands and gives him the pain medication that leads to his manic transformation in Holy Cornholio. Voiced by Kristofor Brown.
  • Dr. Leibowitz: He runs an impotence clinic, which the boys see advertised on television (Impotence). He is a heavy-set balding man with gray hair, wearing a white lab coat. The boys get the idea from the clinic's ad that he can help them "score". After eventually getting annoyed with their antics, he thinks "mankind needs me" and he gives them a bottle of saltpeter to discourage them from breeding. After taking it, the boys do not find the pictures they saw in the office nearly as stimulating. Voiced by Gideon Evans.
  • Harry Buddisker: A middle-aged balding man with a stubble beard and a chunky appearance, he is a local health department inspector. He enters Burger World around closing time just after Beavis and Butt-head have thrown all manner of food and drink into the ceiling fan, trashing the restaurant (Closing Time). They call him "Harry Buttwhisker". They feed him fried worms, calling them "seasoned curly fries". He also appears as the father of the bride in Here Comes the Bride's Butt.
  • Hamid: Appears only in the new episodes. Works telephone tech support for computers at a company called Co-Techs in Highland (Tech Support). Hamid speaks English with difficulty and a strong Middle Eastern accent ("I have only been working here a short distance"), but he appears to be a hard worker who takes his job seriously. He is frustrated by Beavis' and Butt-head's poor work ethic and he informs his supervisor that they are not doing their jobs properly, but he is told to emulate them because they get customers off the phones quickly. Following their instructions, he gives advice to a worker at the power plant that leads to the entire city losing electrical power. Hamid also appears as a used car salesman at Tardino's Autos (Used Car). He is fired for allowing the boys to test drive a car (which Butt-head promptly wrecks by driving it into the building across the street) without first checking for licenses and insurance. Although the boys get it right, his boss at the car lot mispronounces his name, calling him HAM-id. Voiced by Mike Judge.
  • Dr. Steve: A counselor at Rolling Hills, a drug and alcohol treatment facility in or near Highland (Dumbasses Anonymous). B&B are put in his support group for alcoholics after telling the receptionist that they have had trouble getting beer (which she apparently misinterprets as alcoholic cravings). They get the idea that someone there can help them to get beer after group member Dennis (see Local Residents above) talks to Mr. Buzzcut's class about alcohol abuse. Dr. Steve tries unsuccessfully to maintain control of the group after B&B convince them to go down the street to a bar to have one drink, and then come right back. As the group leaves, he tells them to "Remember your centers."
  • Jay Weidelman: A sales representative for Central Telephone who tries to sell B&B a 900 number, which they pursue at the suggestion of a woman on a phone sex line (1-900-BEAVIS). The boys walk out when they decide that signing their names and writing the date on the application form is too complicated.
  • Dentist: An unnamed orthodontist who Butt-head sees for adjustments to his braces (Patients Patients). Butt-head laughs when the dentist asks if he has been wearing his rubber bands and headgear at night. After Butt-head lashes out and kicks over a tray of instruments, the dentist sedates him with laughing gas. His mouth is wired shut during the procedure. While Beavis is sitting in the waiting room, the nurse calls him over for an eye examination. His inability to identify any letter complicates him passing the eye test. He finally says "Oh" while the optometrist is pointing to the letter O, but the prescription leaves Beavis with very blurred vision. Beavis says "This is like being in a toilet." When they return to class, Mr. Buzzcut asks Butt-head to read the words "sexual intercourse" on the board as their topic of the day, saying that Butt-head has been waiting his whole life to say it without getting in trouble. Butt-head cannot pronounce the words with his mouth wired shut and Buzzcut throws him out of class, believing that he is being uncooperative. He then asks Beavis to read them, but Beavis' glasses make his vision too blurred to read anything. He is also thrown out of class.

Television/radio personalities[edit]

Television and radio personalities in Beavis and Butt-head included:[citation needed]

  • Rabid Ron: A radio host for local radio station KT&A where Beavis and Butt-head win a guest DJ spot (Radio Sweethearts). The duo gains popularity with Ron's audience by tactlessly ridiculing him on the air for being an over the hill Heavy metal poseur and promising free butt tattoos as a giveaway. Ron's show, which seemingly had almost no audience before the pair guest hosted, is retooled to emulate Beavis and Butt-head after his audience apparently wants to hear more of them. After hearing the reworked show, Butt-head remarks "This used to be a pretty cool station until they put these dorks on." Voiced by Kristofor Brown.
  • Gus Baker: A parody of Rush Limbaugh, Baker mistakenly believes Beavis and Butt-head to be positive young role models when they call his talk show to praise his advocacy of the death penalty for criminals (Right On). As a result, he brings them on the show to discuss "immoral" music videos. However, their crassness and bad language soon create a commotion, ending with Beavis mooning the camera. Baker's show and his prospective presidential campaign are taken off the air due to the negative public reaction.
  • Dan Silver: A parody of self-help guru Tony Robbins (The Miracle That Is Beavis). He gives Beavis a brief motivational speech at a book signing, along with a free copy of his book "Seize The Power". Beavis's assertiveness increases dramatically (much to the aggravation of Coach Buzzcut and Principal McVicker), but it also annoys Butt-head, who regresses Beavis to his old self with a few smacks across the face.
  • Peter Small: A parody of fitness guru Tony Little (Take a Lap), he hosts infomercials for performance-enhancing supplements in such an aggressive manner that it convinces Beavis and Butt-head to exercise and concoct their own supplemental drink - after Butt-head calls the toll-free number and becomes upset because they aren't free. They go to Stewart's house and raid the kitchen for ingredients - including molasses, salsa, flour and canned beans. They trash the kitchen by mixing the ingredients in the blender with the lid off, then leave just as Stewart's parents return home, leaving Stewart to deal with the mess. Peter Small later dies of heart failure brought upon by the strain of defecation. Voiced by Dean Julian.
  • Captain Dick Jackman: A weatherman on a Highland television station, he hosts Teen Talk, a program on which he talks to troubled teens. He unsuccessfully tries to appear tuned in to the lingo of teenagers. Beavis and Butt-head are sent to appear on the show by Principal McVicker as a disciplinary measure. Earlier in the episode, Jackman covers an event at Highland High at which the school is announcing a canned food drive. The National Honor Society has glued cans together to spell the word "CARES" next to the Highland High sign. When the drape is removed from the cans, it is shown that B&B have rearranged the cans to spell "SUKS" (misspelling "sucks") instead. This event was apparently televised live, as McVicker shows the boys a replay of it in his office before giving them a choice of either going on Teen Talk and confessing, or removing asbestos from the cafeteria. In Tornado Jackman appears on television with an emergency weather bulletin about a line of tornadoes forming near Highland.
  • Wolf Jackal: A parody of reporter Wolf Blitzer of CNN. He is the reporter in the war scene Beavis sees in the crystal ball in Madame Blavatsky.
  • Trish Burbee: The television reporter who covers Butt-head being extracted from the pipe he is stuck in (The Pipe of Doom)
  • Deborah Shea: The Channel 2 reporter who covers the "labor dispute" at Burger World when Beavis and Butt-head decide to go on strike (On Strike).
  • Jim Backley: The reporter for Channel 7 who covers Beavis' rescue from the top of the copy machine after the glass top breaks as he tries to copy his butt (Copy Machine). An unidentified reporter of identical appearance and voice reports on a train derailment and the resultant toxic gas leak, which causes the evacuation of a 20 square block area of north Highland (Doomsday). He later reports on the vandalism at Stewart's house (perpetrated by B&B, but they believe that their actions were an improvement and someone else did it after they left) during the evacuation. He describes both situations as "apocalyptic". The same character, again not identified, is shown reporting from Highland High when the boys are suspended from school for their actions in support of the Positive Acting Teens' (see Classmates above) opposition to the teaching of evolution (Dumb Design) - although their motives are different from those of the PATs. He is also shown seeking comment from Principal McVicker regarding allegations of cheating on the standardized aptitude test after McVicker enters random answers on the boys' test forms after all they have written in four hours is their names (School Test).
  • Dr. Jean Shephard: Described as a "TV psychologist and diet expert", she is interviewed by Jim Backley to describe the trauma that Beavis faces as a result of being injured by broken glass on top of the copy machine when he tries to copy his butt (Copy Machine).


  • Killer: A knife-wielding serial killer who encounters Beavis and Butt-head after escaping from prison (Most Wanted). He has a jailhouse tattoo of the word "killer" on his forehead, which the duo misread and assume is his name, "Kyler". After being diverted from killing the two due to a confusing conversation about tattoos and Beavis' psychotic ramblings, he gives the duo tattoos on their butts: a picture of a butt with its own butt-shaped tattoo on it. He then turns himself in so that he can give the same tattoo to other inmates. In Vidiots, he appears on a show hosted by Geraldo Rivera about dating services, saying the services were great because he was able to order up his victims, and only regrets that he used his real name in the process. Rivera refers to him as "Tom". In Radio Sweethearts he is shown listening to Beavis and Butt-head on the radio from his prison cell. A character of similar appearance (but with shorter hair) appears as the mall security guard in Underwear. He relapses into his unstable psychotic self in Virtual Stupidity.
  • Killer 2: In A Great Day the duo meet with a killer after noticing a trail of blood leading to his front door. Later he is seen putting a dead body into the trunk of a car. He is never named. He has blond hair and a mustache, and bears a strong resemblance (most likely intentional) to real life serial killer Jeffery Dahmer.
  • Ross and Harlan: White trash criminals who make their first appearance breaking into the Stevensons' residence to steal their belongings while Beavis and Butt-head are inside watching pay-per-view television (Stewart Moves Away). Upon encountering the duo they sarcastically pose as professional movers, stealing valuable items while inciting the boys to break less valuable items and to show them where the "good stuff" is. The duo instantly take a liking to Ross and Harlan, never realizing that they are robbers, even after the Stevensons return and Mr. Stevenson yells that they have been robbed. The two criminals play a brief but important role in Beavis and Butt-head Do America when they break into the boys' house and steal their TV set, thus beginning the duo's cross-country quest for it. They are also the hitmen who Muddy hires to murder his wife. In Tech Support characters of identical appearance are shown driving by in a truck, then driving through the front window of the building and helping themselves to computer equipment after B&B's suggestion to Hamid (who is talking to someone at the power plant) causes the entire city of Highland to lose electrical power. Ross is voiced by Sam Johnson, and Harlan is voiced by Toby Huss.
  • Slade: A member of Todd's gang. Slade is stocky with long brown hair, wearing a white T-shirt with cutoff sleeves and blue jeans. He appears in several episodes.
  • Leroy: A local thug who leads a gang that are rivals to Todd. In Safe House, Leroy and two gangbangers go to the duo's house to look for Todd, who is hiding there. After Beavis claims that he and Butt-head are part of Todd's gang, Leroy and the others beat them up as a "message" for Todd. Shortly afterward, they pound the duo again when they end up in the same jail cell. He and his gang also appear in Virtual Stupidity, where he is found in a cell, and though escapes prison, his gang ends up losing their vehicles and thrown back in prison due to the duo's antics.
  • The Inmates: One is a hard-timer who has a prosthetic leg and glass eyeball as a result of his escape attempts and fights. He is ordered by the warden to intimidate Beavis and Butt-head and other high school students with a profanity-laden tirade during their visit to a prison in a parody of the Scared Straight! video series (Scared Straight). Beavis and Butt-head are so impressed with him and the two other inmates they meet, that they determine that prison is to their liking. B&B befriend the two inmates they spend time with in a cell, making an instant connection after Beavis compliments the stocky one on his Iron Maiden tattoo. At the end of the episode they are shown trying to sneak back into the prison with a group of students who are arriving just as their own bus is about to leave.

Political figures[edit]

  • Betsy Wiener: A parody of Tipper Gore and the Parents Music Resource Center. She is a member of the group "Decency in Media". She blames music videos for actions that result in the duo being struck by lightning (Lightning Strikes). In actuality, they were influenced by a PBS documentary on Benjamin Franklin and his famous kite experiment, but Betsy uses their description of Franklin – "some old dude with long hair and glasses" – to insinuate that they were influenced by Howard Stern.

Religious figures[edit]

  • Charlie: Beavis and Butt-head's guardian angel, who regards them as his greatest disappointment. He appears in a Christmas special in It's a Miserable Life, a twisted spoof of It's a Wonderful Life. Charlie attempts to convince Butt-head to commit suicide by showing him what Highland would be like if he had never existed. Tom Anderson, Principal McVicker, Daria, Burger World, Stewart, and even Beavis are all much better off without Butt-head, but Butt-head does not see it that way. Charlie falls off the bridge and is carried away by a current after failing to convince the duo to kill themselves.
  • Saint Peter: Beavis meets Saint Peter at the pearly gates after he apparently dies (The Final Judgement of Beavis). Later it is revealed that Beavis was merely dreaming after knocking himself unconscious running into the side of the house trying to imitate the movie "Iron Justice" (a parody of Robocop). After Beavis mistakes him for Santa Claus, St. Peter begins a lengthy review of Beavis's life detailing his frequent acts of mischief, including urinating in the gym, passing out chocolate laxatives in his kindergarten class, mutilating an action figure "in a most disturbing manner" and "touching himself in an impure manner". He goes so far as to call Beavis "butt-munch", and eventually denies him entrance into heaven.
  • Hank: Leader of a religious cult posing as God (Beavis and Butt-head Meet God), he resides in a complex where Beavis and Butt-head are brought after cult members pick up the duo hitchhiking. They are confined to living quarters with no television. They promptly escape to join Hank in his room, where the three sit on a couch and enjoy heavy metal music videos together.
  • The Beloved (AKA Myron Turtlebaum): Leader of a religious cult called Center for the New Arcana located near Highland (Holy Cornholio). Following the death of The Beloved, his followers mistake Beavis (in the midst of a painkiller-induced Cornholio fit) as the reincarnation of their lost leader. Cult members interpret the holes in Beavis' hands from overtightening a screw into an action figure at Stewart's house as "the stigmata", and his nonsensical Cornholio babblings as speaking in tongues. They also believe Butt-head to be a prophet. The Arcana cult apparently involves sexual activity between The Beloved and his many female devotees, including a mysterious ceremony called The Great Conception. Beavis's incessant demands for toilet paper perplex the cult, and the duo's short attention spans ultimately prevent them from "scoring" (despite the cult's willingness). The cult tracks Beavis back home, arriving to take him to The Great Conception while Stewart is standing at the front door. Beavis tells them, "He's The Beloved now. Go bother him." Then, much to Stewart's delight, they lead him away to participate in the sexual ceremony.


  • Ken Alder: A graduate student in film and anthropology who visits Mr. Van Driessen's class to talk to them about doing a documentary film on troubled teens. He picks Beavis and Butt-head as the subjects for his film, entitled Generation in Crisis (from the episode of the same name). In the film they are called Steven (Beavis) and Bernard (Butt-head). They are shown staring at an armadillo that has been run over on the road, listening to music videos at home, and engaging in other forms of general loitering.
  • Thor: Appears in some of the earliest episodes. His physical stature is reminiscent of a gorilla. He is often summoned to deal with Beavis and Butt-head when they are being disruptive at a place of business (i. e., At the Sideshow, Babes R Us). This involves him grabbing the duo by their ankles and repeatedly slamming them to the ground.
  • Sergeant Dick Leakey (The Rooster): A soldier in a recruiting office who tries to convince Beavis and Butt-head to join the Army (Be All You Can Be). After luring them inside with a promise to let them touch his grenade launcher and then showing them a video about how the Army uses heavy metal music to scare the enemy, he tries to force them to enlist at gunpoint. They sign the enlistment forms as "Major Woody" and "Private Parts". The enraged sergeant pulls the trigger several times, but the gun is not loaded (the duo having stolen the bullets along with a live hand grenade) and it clicks harmlessly as the boys run away.
  • Katya: She appears in Bride of Butt-head, in which the boys find an ad for a mail-order bride in a magazine. Butt-head calls, claiming to be "a rich American with a big wiener". He is put on hold while the manager of the company talks to Katya, who is disappointed that her current "husband" is not rich as promised. The manager matches the two, paying for transport fees. Once Katya arrives, all Butt-head is interested in is "doing it", much to her irritation. Eventually, she and Todd end up having sex instead, but B&B are happy about this because they believe this makes them related to Todd.
  • Principal Brown: The principal of Wilson Elementary School, where Beavis and Butt-head are sent after being demoted from ninth grade (Held Back). They fail math in progressively lower grades and thoroughly disrupt a kindergarten class. His kindergarten teacher threatens to quit if he doesn't get them out of her class. Principal Brown contemplates sending them back to pre-school, but he knows that they would just come back through. Beavis and Butt-head's suggestion to put them in a higher grade "where the chicks have big thingies" gives him an idea to get rid of them. He brings them back to Highland High, telling Principal McVicker that they are star pupils and they graduated them early – and they are not taking them back. Similar in appearance to Harry Buddisker (see White collar workers above)
  • Joan: Mr. Van Driessen's girlfriend in Date Watchers. The two are first seen eating lunch at the mall and sharing similar world views. When Beavis and Butt-head overhear them in conversation, they excitedly believe that Van Driessen is about to "score". After following the couple to his house, the boys attempt to watch them through a window in the hope that they will have sex. In the middle of an intimate moment, Joan asks Van Driessen to pull down the shades for privacy, which annoys B&B enough that they ring the doorbell. Despite Van Driessen admonishing them for their behavior, they manage to push their way in through the door and demand to watch them have sex. Van Driessen suggests continuing their evening together at Joan's house instead. Undeterred, Beavis and Butt-head decide to follow them there as well.
  • Henry: A homeless man who Beavis and Butt-head mistake for a werewolf (Werewolves of Highland). Inspired by the Twilight movies and stories of Dracula, they ask him to bite them so that they will become irresistible to women. Instead, they wind up in a hospital with a wide range of infectious diseases. His voice is identical to Spongy, a similar homeless character from Mike Judge's show King of the Hill.
  • Megan: A woman who Van Driessen knows from a medieval fair. She is churning butter at Prairie Falls, a recreated homesteading community from 1832 that his class visits on a field trip (Time Machine). B&B fall asleep on the bus and they mistakenly believe that they have gone back in time and that Van Driessen is actually his great-great grandfather, Tobias Van Driessen. They believe that if they can stop the developing relationship between Megan and Van Driessen, the man they know as their teacher will never be born. They are disappointed upon returning to the school when, after again falling asleep on the bus, they see that Van Driessen is alive.
  • Maya Kanigher: An environmental activist working along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico to rescue seabirds soiled by an oil spill (Spill). Beavis and Butt-head sign up to go along with volunteers from Mr. Van Driessen's class because he tells them about the "chicks" that are "filthy" - which they interpret to mean women with whom they can easily "score" rather than baby birds covered with oil. She seems oblivious to the duo's repeated sexual innuendoes and their misinterpretation of her instructions about cleaning the birds as an invitation to fondle her.
  • Second Lieutenant Decker: An Army officer at Fort Sawyer who takes part of Mr. Van Driessen's class on a tour of the base to acquaint them with possible military careers (Drones). He contradicts several things Van Driessen tells his class about the "peaceful" mission of today's Army, as well as his statement as they are about to depart that they need a solid high school education ("Statistically, we find that juvenile delinquents make the best warriors."). B&B wander into the Drone Control room (misreading the sign as "Drain Central") while looking for the bathroom. They take control of actual drones, believing that they are playing video games (Beavis identifies the "game" as Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, but with airplanes). Beavis scatters a herd of sheep by flying low overhead (after mistaking them for prostitutes wearing fur coats), destroys a billboard advertising cooperation between the United States and an unspecified Arab country (probably either Iraq or Afghanistan) and cuts a power line with a wing, cutting off electrical power to Lashkar Tarin, a village that has just gotten electricity courtesy of the Peace Corps. Butt-head, frustrated that his training drone doesn't have weapons, flies it into the welcome banner on the base (mistaking it for an "ammo icon"), buzzes a prostitute soliciting a man in a car, knocks down a wedding tent and narrowly misses Tom Anderson talking to two Mormon missionaries (who he misidentifies as "a couple of lawyers I can run over."). After tiring of the "game", B&B leave to get cake. The soldier who was flying the armed drones (and left them on autopilot while going to get cake and ice cream) is arrested as a saboteur after the drones crash while left unattended. Butt-head's training drone crashes into his class' school bus, destroying it.
  • Crystal: A porn star who misinterprets Beavis' eye twitching after being sprayed in the face with a carbonated drink as tweaking, a repetitive movement often caused by drug use (Holding). She asks him if he is "holding" (carrying drugs). Beavis, obviously unaware of the meaning, tells her that he is. Increasing the misunderstanding, she tells him "I really need to score", which B&B interpret as have sex. She and her companion Sapphire take the boys in their van from Maxi Mart to the house where her next movie is being filmed, assuming that the boys will sell them drugs once they get there. B&B believe that they are about to be paid for having sex with the women.
  • Sapphire: Crystal's companion, who she describes as a fluffer (Holding).
  • Gary: The director of the adult movie that Crystal is starring in (Holding). He is apparently filming in a bedroom at his mother's house, judging from her repeated verbal interruptions outside the door, much to Gary's increasing annoyance. When B&B arrive, he refers to them as "the stars of the party". He believes that they are bringing drugs for everyone, and they believe that he is referring to them being porn stars (which they believe they are about to become). He is arrested along with his mother, an unnamed male and the two women (Crystal and Sapphire), when police raid the "set" and find B&B, who are under 18. B&B are placed in protective custody by the police.
  • Xander: The male of a Gothic couple getting married under the tent that Butt-head knocks down with a training drone (Drones). The corner of the collapsing tent crushes the wedding cake, causing him to call off the wedding, much to the relief of the bride-to-be's parents.
  • Cassandra: The female of a Gothic couple getting married under the tent that Butt-head knocks down with a training drone (Drones). Not to be confused with B&B's long time classmate of the same name (see Classmates above).
  • Mr. Post: A homeless man who B&B mistake for a fugitive who has skipped bail (Bounty Hunters). After mistaking a bouncer shopping at Stromberg Hardware for Dog the Bounty Hunter, they get the idea to become bounty hunters themselves. The bouncer tells them that photos of the most wanted fugitives are in the post office. They walk past the fugitive photos and find a photo (under Volunteers of the Week) of a youth karate class at Clifton Karate School. After B&B go to the school and try to arrest the entire class, the instructor knocks both of them down with karate moves. Defeated, they return to the post office. They first take down a photo of President Barack Obama. They ask a postal employee if he has seen him, and they are told that he is in Europe attending a summit. Discouraged by the distance, they then take down a picture of the Postmaster General. Butt-head misreads the engraved plate on the picture frame and he believes that "Post" (rhyming with "lost") is the man's name. They spot a homeless man who only vaguely resembles the man in the photo, then they try to take him to jail. They wind up riding in his cart as they go uphill. He knows exactly where the jail is, correcting B&B's wrong directions. After Beavis makes an insulting remark to the police officer at the jail and she stands to confront them, Butt-head pulls out his pepper spray and accidentally shoots Beavis in the face as the officer sprays him. Beavis shoots himself in the face with pepper spray, and the homeless man falls on the floor laughing.
  • Immigration agent: This unnamed federal officer visits Burger World to see if there are any illegal immigrants working there (Vaya Con Cornholio). Beavis, having assumed his Cornholio persona after drinking excessive quantities of Volt Cola (a parody of Jolt Cola), is babbling nonsensically as he paces back and forth by the grill, which he has covered with meat patties to "prepare a feast before the Almighty Bunghole". The agent asks Butt-head what language Beavis is speaking, before asking Beavis (in Spanish) whether he speaks Spanish, to which Beavis replies "Español? Es bunghole!". Beavis leaves the restaurant through a rear exit. The agent follows him outside, and asks him (in Spanish) if he has a green card. Beavis repeats back what he says, adding some Spanish-sounding words. He is taken to the Immigration office, where he is eventually put on a bus to be deported to Mexico. Upon arrival, it is apparent that the people on the bus have heard his incessant demands for toilet paper as they mutter about it as they leave. Beavis steps off the bus and asks no one in particular, "Is this Nicaragua?" before making rambling statements about "TP" (toilet paper).
