Beavis and Butt-Head

It's a Miserable Life is the eighth episode in Season 6, the 148th episode overall, and the fourth holiday special of Beavis and Butt-Head. It aired as the second episode of A Beavis and Butt-head Christmas.


The episode starts as prayers are heard from Mrs. Stevenson, Tom Anderson, Principal McVicker, David Van Driessen, and Mr. Stevenson all wishing to God that Beavis and Butt-Head would stop causing trouble to their lives (some going as far as wishing them dead). While watching TV, the duo are visited by their guardian angel, Charlie. Charlie then shows Butt-head how much everyone's lives would be better if he never existed.

It immediately stops raining and Butt-Head is as dry as a bone. Anderson has a nice yard and Christmas lights because Butt-head never messed it up. He is taken to Burger World where it has customers. Butt-head finds this life stupid, but Charlie points out that it was his doing. The reason Burger World wasn't doing so well was because he was responsible in repelling them from returning with his antics and his boss never had the heart to fire him throughout that time.

Charlie then takes Butt-Head to Highland High School, where it's been renovated and more students attend. He notices McVicker still has his hair and is nowhere near stressed out. Charlie points out that both Beavis and Butt-Head were directly responsible for stressing him out over the years. He then notices Daria whom is much happier, has a normal teenage life and has a boyfriend in Hiro. When Butt-Head asks about it, Charlie explains that he was responsible for making her cynical and miserly by being around her. As a result, Daria lost faith in humanity and is unhappy. Butt-Head asks where Beavis is because he wants to know.

Charlie then takes him to the homeless shelter where he sees Stewart has self-esteem and is wearing a "Poison" T-shirt. Stewart's best friend is... of all people, none other than Beavis, who is wearing not his trademark "Metallica" T-shirt, but Stewart's signature "Winger" shirt. Butt-Head insults Beavis about how much of a loser he is without recognizing him. He doesn't know what a bunghole is either, and when Butt-head tells him he is one (and calls him "bunghole"), Stewart tells Butt-head that a word can't define itself and calls the latter a "Cro-Magnon" (Beavis agrees). Butt-head attempts to drag Beavis out with him, but is stopped by some homeless people, who say Beavis is a "good kid", and Butt-head is thrown out. Charlie then explains that Stewart had no confidence and self-esteem in himself because Butt-Head ruined it for him by being a bully to him.

At the bridge, Charlie points out that Beavis' life was much better without him around because he wasn't there to ruin his life by being a jerk to him. He asks Butt-Head to do the right thing and commit suicide because everyone's miserable lives were attributed to him. He ignores Charlie and asks to "be born again". Butt-Head mentions that despite every mean thing he's done to Beavis, he stills values him as a friend. It starts to rain hard again. Then he is on the bridge again and sees Beavis, who says the word "bunghole". Butt-head is surprised, to which Beavis responds, "You're a bunghole, bunghole!" (He is also wearing his Metallica shirt again). The episode ends with Charlie falling off the bridge again while trying to get them to consider suicide. Beavis and Butt-Head just watch and laugh again, with Butt-Head telling Beavis that while life sucks, it would "suck worse" without them.
