B&B Trivia

In October 1993, Beavis and Butt-head, MTV’s animated top-rated series, was attacked for allegedly inspiring a 5-year-old child to start a fatal fire. In response, MTV agreed to run the controversial show in a later time spot, and the writers agreed that in the future they would not use references to fires.

I thought I remember it being found that the kid didn't even have cable, but that was years ago-my memory might have failed me. And if I listened to cartoons like my favorite, Looney Tunes, I would have pushed animals off cliffs, shot ducks in the face to watch their bills spin round their faces, and kissed Hitler on the lips (I definitely remember that one..have it on DVD in fact)..I watched Beavis and Butthead all the time, and never set anything on fire.

I think I remember that, too, MM. Yes, if we'd done what our cartoons showed, we'd have done all that stuff and more! Thanks!! :-)
