'Beavis and Butt-Head' are returning to MTV

Series creator Mike Judge will be at the helm again for these new installments and will also continue to serve as the voice of the two head-banging roommates. The pop culture references in the show will be updated, though. That means instead of ogling Tawny Kitaen in a Whitesnake video, they'll be going gaga for Katy Perry on Sesame Street.

If nothing else, this is an encouraging sign that our retro remakes are progressing. We've gone from movies about the A-Team, which ended in 1987, to this show, which ended in 1997, in the space of a year. We should be caught up and have original movies and TV shows by 2013. Cross your fingers!
