Mike Judge leaving the 'Howard Stern' radio show when 'Beavis and Butt-Head' was last on air in 1997.
Last night, in honor of the satirical cartoon's ninth season--and the first in nearly 15 years--Twitter developed into a harbor of well-wishes and accolades for the creator of the two high school nitwits. Some applauded Judge's take on the undead creature craze, others urged him to take a second look at "Office Space" (another project with an equally powerful fan following) and many more fans simply thanked him for bringing them back to their teenage years.
