Mike covered the current IRS scandal, Alex’s epic interview on Piers Morgan, and The 2nd Amendment Debate. He gave insights into his groundbreaking animation, movies and style of satire that is now proving to be prophetic. He discloses the origins of Beavis and Butthead, Dale Gribble, and behind the scenes of the movie that Hollywood tried to kill Idiocracy. Mike’s Twitter is https://twitter.com/MikeJudge

Iconic animator Mike Judge, the man behind Beavis & Butt-Head and King of the Hill, told Infowars in an exclusive interview that his 2006 movie Idiocracy, which depicted a dystopic futuristic society populated by morons, is already unfolding, as well as sounding off on a number of different issues including gun control and Hollywood.

Judge told Alex Jones that his parents raised him to be a liberal but he doesn’t feel comfortable describing himself as a Democrat or a Republican because the two extremes of partisanship resemble a “religion”. Judge added that he had become “interested in smaller government kind of thinking” since he began building his own projects and was getting “penalized left and right” by the system as a result. by Paul Joseph Watson http://www.infowars.com/animator-mike…

Exploding on to MTV in 1993, the creepy cartoon characters became a cult phenomenon, made the cover of Rolling Stone and were name-checked in Hollywood blockbuster True Lies. Juvenile, gruesome and boobs-obsessed Beavis and Butt-Head broke ground as an animated series dealing in adult comedy.

It spawned playground catchphrases and inspired a new wave of adult cartoons, the best of which are South Park and Family Guy.

Metal Injection was lucky enough to be a part of a roundtable discussion with Beavis & Butthead creator Mike Judge during the NY Comic Con. Mike answers questions about the creative process, metal videos appearing on the show, if any bands ever confronted him and much more.More….

Dallas Observer Mike Judge loves DFW! Not only is his animated “King of the Hill” set in Arlen, Texas (kind of sounds like Garland, don’t it?), he chose to film the bible of all “I hate my job!” films right here in Las Colinas.

Judge played it smart by keeping the film’s locations nondescript, but there are moments where you can identify a few different recognizable spots out of car windows. And while Chotchkie’s may not be a real restaurant, coincidentally T.G.I. Friday’s just happens to have its HQ here in Carrolton.

He created “Beavis and Butt-Head” (1993) for MTV and “King of the Hill” (1997) for Fox. In late 1996 he was determined to get “King of the Hill” (1997) off the ground and bring “Beavis and Butt-Head” (1993) to an end.

This resulted in a struggle with both networks as he tried to convince them that they were two completely separate shows.

The characters of Mr. Tom Anderson (from “Beavis and Butt-Head” (1993)) and Hank Hill (from “King of the Hill” (1997)) are based, in part, on his experiences with his neighbors in Texas.
