Lightning Strikes is the 21st episode in Season 5 of Beavis and Butt-head. It is the 110th episode overall.

Plot[]

The duo is watching a TV show called "Great American Minds: Benjamin Franklin" and they see him put a key on a kite to prove his theory of lightning. When the lightning hits the kite, Beavis and Butt-Head are amused. They then hear lightning and they decide to do the same thing. When they get outside they think it is going to be cool, but when they try to get the kite in the air, it ends up getting stuck in a tree. When they try to retrieve it, lightning hits them and the tree falls on them. At the hospital, a doctor says that Butt-Head is okay but Beavis has no brain activity. A reporter named Betsy Wiener then talks to Butt-Head to see what TV show they imitated the night before. Butt-head has no idea what it was called so he gave a description. She then looks at the TV listings to find what they were watching. She finds the show but does not believe it was what they were watching since it is educational. She then asks what else they watched the day before and he said some music videos. Beavis and Butt-Head are then seen eating ice cream and gloating about how the hospital rules. They see the reporter on TV saying that they imitated a music video that contained fire, thunder, and lightning. The duo call her stupid and they finish their ice cream.
