Safe Driving is the 23rd episode in Season 4 of Beavis and Butt-head. It is the overall 84th episode.


The duo are at school waiting in line for Drivers ED. Then when Coach Buzzcut comes in he tells the students that they're going to watch a video that contains real gruesome car crashes which excites Beavis and Butt-head.

In the old 1950's era made video, two teenagers that look like Beavis and Butt-Head, called Vinnie and Frankie, get in a car crash which amuses Beavis and Butt-Head, and inspires the duo to be like the irresponsible and reckless drivers, who they think are "cool". Then the scene goes to Beavis, Butt-Head, and Coach Buzzcut in a car about to go for a test drive but they get hit by a truck and blood splashes on the screen.

The duo, in the end (mainly Butt-head), however, continue to laugh, signifying that they are still alive.



[We open with the students of Highland High School entering a Driver's Education class, led by Coach Buzzcut. Among the students are Beavis and Butt-Head.]

Butt-Head: Hey, Beavis. It's like, I already know how to drive, so like, I don't really need to take this class.

Beavis: Yeah, me too. I've driven before.

Butt-Head: No, you haven't, Beavis. You drove bumper cars that one time, and you got stuck in the corner. Everyone was kicking your ass, even that little girl! [He laughs.]

Beavis: Shut up, Butt-Head! I drove a real car once! You weren't there, it was somewhere else. It was cool. [He starts making loud, obnoxious noises, imitating a car's engine.]

Coach Buzzcut: Permission slips and birth certificates! Let's see 'em! MOVE IT! MOVE IT! [Butt-Head hands his birth certificate and permission slip, with a forged signature from "Mrs. Butt-Head".] What are you staring at, BUTT-HEAD?! [Beavis then hands two pieces of paper that read "BIRF CURTIFIKIT, BEAVIS" and "PURMISHON SLIP, OK".] Waiting for a playful pat on the butt?! MOVE IT!!!

Butt-Head: This is gonna be cool! [He and Beavis enter the classroom. Once inside, he and Beavis are imitating driving cars with their desks, and Butt-Head shoves his desk into Beavis, simulating a car crash.]

Beavis: OW! Cut it out, butthole!

Coach Buzzcut: [He enters the classroom, slamming the door.] SHUT THE HELL UP!! Now, welcome to Driver's Ed. I'm required to tell you that the film we are about to see contains actual footage of gruesome car crashes.

Butt-Head: YES!!


Butt-Head: Car crashes rule!

Coach Buzzcut: It's nothing I haven't seen, but it may be too much for some you delicate types. [He scowls at one particular student upon that remark.] Now, no one's going to think you're a pantywaist if you can't take it, but if you can't, I SUGGEST YOU GET YOUR PATHETIC, WEAK-WILLED LITTLE BUTT OUT OF HERE NOW!!! YOU HAVE FIVE SECONDS!!! [That particular student gets up and leaves with his head hanging low. Beavis and Butt-Head promptly start laughing at him.]

Butt-Head: That guy's a wuss!

Beavis: Yeah! He's a pantywuss!

Coach Buzzcut: SHUT UP!!! LIGHTS! [One student shuts the lights off while Buzzcut starts the film projector.]

[As the film begins to play, we see a shot of someone sliding out of control into another driver, as the screen gets splashed with blood. A title card zooms in, reading "Bloody Mess Behind the Wheel".]

Beavis: This movie's old.

Butt-Head: Yeah, this is from back when people were stupid.

Coach Buzzcut: QUIET!!!

Narrator: Most young people are conscientious citizens who drive defensively and obey all the applicable traffic laws.

[We see a shot of a driver giving a hand signal to a police officer while making a turn.]

Butt-Head: Look, he's flipping him off!

Beavis: Yeah!

Coach Buzzcut: SHUT UP!!!

Narrator: But there's always going to be one or two bad apples in the bunch.

[The scene changes to two teenagers smoking cigarettes, which catches Beavis and Butt-Head's attention.]

Butt-Head: Those guys are cool!

Beavis: Yeah!

Narrator: These two boys, let's call them "Finny" and "Franky", think they're cool. All their friends think they're cool. But unsafe driving is never cool!

Finny: Let's cruise, Franky!

Franky: Hey, cool!

[The two boys get in their car and drive off in a very reckless way, and start laughing very similarly like Beavis and Butt-Head.]

Butt-Head: Cool!

[As the video goes on, the boys are seen driving very fast down a road, and almost run over a boy scout, which excites Beavis.]


[They barely miss the boy scout, and continue laughing. All the while, Beavis and Butt-Head are laughing exactly the same way.]

Finny: Hang a Louie, Franky!

Butt-Head: [He laughs.] He said "loogie"!

Beavis: Yeah, and he said "hang", too! [They both laugh upon Beavis saying "hang".]

Finny: Louie, Franky! Louie!

Franky: Wait, first I gotta signal!

Finny: Don't be a square, Franky! Just hang it!

Franky: Alright, wisenheimer! [Franky makes the turn without signaling, and slam into an oncoming semi-truck. The screen then gets splashed with blood as they collide with the truck, frightening all the students watching, except Beavis and Butt-Head.]

Butt-Head: [Laughing at what has happened.] Splat!

Beavis: Yeah! Blap!

[The scene changes to a video titled "ACTUAL HIGHWAY PATROL FOOTAGE". We see the aftermath of the deadly crash, as a highway patrolman opens the door of the boys' wrecked car. Off-screen, the students scream in horror when they see their bodies splatter out of the car.]

Butt-Head: WHOA!! His brain fell out!

Beavis: "And this your brain. This is your brain on the street. Any questions?"

Butt-Head: That was cool!

[Later, we find Beavis, Butt-Head, and Coach Buzzcut in a training car for the class.]

Coach Buzzcut: Alright, Butt-Head, now pay attention. Just release the brake, and press gently on the accelerator.

Beavis: Yeah, dumbass! Drive!

Coach Buzzcut: Butt-Head! What is your problem?! Apply pressure to the accelerator! DO IT, NOW!!!

[Butt-Head laughs as he slams his foot on the accelerator, sending the car flying out of control, on to the street, and into the path of an oncoming semi-truck. They all scream in terror as they collide with the truck, while the screen gets splashed with blood, just like in the video they just watched!]


  • At the end of this episode it is similar to the ending in the video they watched.
  • Beavis, Butt-Head, and Coach Buzzcut had to of lived at the end they were probably just injured.
  • It's odd how Butt-head's Birth Certificate didn't have the month or date he was born just the year.
  • In the beginning of the episode,when Beavis and Butt-Head show Coach Buzzcut their birth certificates, it's revealed that Butt-Head was born in 1978. However it doesn't list a specific date. Beavis' certificate, however, doesn't even show the year. This would mean that Butt-Head is 38 years old as of 2016, but 22 in actual realistic years.
  • This is one of the few episodes where Coach Buzzcut screams in fear.
  • The two characters in the drivers education film, are actually early sketches of Beavis and Butthead.
