A national treasure in an age of idiocy… When Beavis and Butt-Head first appeared on MTV more than a decade ago, critics dismissed them as brainless couch potatoes who did nothing but watch TV and make lewd jokes about bodily functions. Today we know they were ahead of their time. Beavis and Butt-Head's unique idiocy profoundly changed television, movies, pop culture and the world.

Beavis and Butt-Head - Local residents - Netflix
Local residents in Beavis and Butt-head included: 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. The only time Todd backed down against Beavis was when he was in his Cornholio alter ego (Bungholio: Lord of the Harvest), opting to beat up the more sane Butt-head. 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 don'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 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 Butt-head living in his house. He attacks them for trespassing. Tom Anderson: 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. Anderson would later serve as an inspiration for Hank Hill from Judge's later show King of the Hill. 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, who was likely the namesake of the character. 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.
