Fans of “Beavis And Butt-Head” got a blast from the past when the ’90s series was rebooted earlier this year, and the two nitwits got to experience a bit of time travel themselves on one of tonight’s all-new episodes. When the best buds mistook a historic plantation as indication that they’d traveled back to the 19th century, they wasted no time lamenting the state of things, devising plans to keep their teacher from being born and confusing the early 1800s with the Mesozoic era.
When B&B grew tired of butter-churning and silversmiths, they were still able to summon the energy required to crash cars, start a business and…hunt down President Obama. Check out some of our favorite quotes from episodes 9 and 10:
