Beavis and Butt-Head

Manners Suck is the 21st episode of Season 4 of Beavis and Butt-head. It is the 78th episode overall.


The duo is watching a TV show about an old lady training her dog. Then the scene goes to Highland High School where Mr. Van Driessen tells the students that some parents want the students to learn good manners. So he introduces Mr. Manners. Mr. Manners tells the students that they're going to do a little bit of role play but Beavis and Butt-head mistake this for something else. So Mr. Manners has Beavis play a waiter and Butt-Head play a customer and he tries to get them to say some manners but it doesn't work. After Butt-head tells Beavis to get him some nachos and calls him a butt wipe, Mr. Manners gets mad and grabs Butt-head and warns him by saying "This is my job, this is how I make money" and to not mess with him. Beavis and Butt-head joke inappropriately about Mr. Manners. That horrifies him and he angrily turns his attention to Beavis and tries to strangle him, but Mr. Van Driessen comes in and after Beavis confirms that Mr. Manners hit him, the latter and Mr. Van Driessen get into a fight. After that, Beavis and Butt-Head finally learn their manners, by stating "No, thank you, Sir" and "Thank you, drive through," as Mr. Van Driessen and Mr. Manners head out of the classroom whilst continuing to fight.

Later on in the boy's bathroom, Beavis and Butt-Head use their manners to release poop from their bowels.

  • On the Mike Judge Collection Volume 1, the scene where Beavis and Butt-head use manners to release poop from their bowels is cut. However, it is included as an Easter Egg on the first DVD.


  • Mr. Manners makes his return in "Candy Sale" as Mr. Candy.
  • The actor/comedian David Spade provides the voice of Mr Manners.
  • It is revealed the students are (secretly afraid) of Mr. Buzzcut, as they go quiet when Mr Van Driessen asks if he needs to bring him into the classroom to get them to be quiet.


  • In two scenes, you can see Mr. Manner's hair go from blonde to brown, then back to blonde. In "Beavis and Butt-Head Are Dead" this error is still there and seen on that episode due to being a clip from this episode.
