Beavis and Butt-Head was an American animated TV series on MTV from 1993-1997 and which experienced a brief revival in 2011. Episodes involved the title characters watching music videos and either praising them ("This is cool") or mocking them ("This sucks.") in a manner similar to Mystery Science Theater 3000 and otherwise engaging in various forms of antisocial behavior. It also spun off Daria.

Canonically, the only hint of romance was the boys' obsession with getting laid by beautiful women and having man-crushes on bully Todd Ianuzi. Butt-Head is also sexually obsessed with Beavis's mother and the mother of his and Beavis's punching bag Stuart Stevenson.

Fandom-wise, Beavis/Butt-Head is surprisingly popular, with fans reasoning it's the only way they'll actually get any and noting how the two spend every waking moment together.
