Beavis and Butt-Head

Sporting Goods is the 12th episode in Season 3 of Beavis and Butt-Head. It is the 41st episode overall.


Beavis and Butt-head are sent by an angry Coach Buzzcut to the local shop because they need to buy athletic supporters (or as they call them "sip otters") for gym class. They end up buying eyepatches instead, & Daria who happened to be at the store takes a picture of the boys. She writes about it, while Beavis and Butt-head's self-written note is ignored by Buzzcut.


Beavis and Butthead are lighting a grasshopper on fire. They soon see Daria appearing in front of them with a camera. When Beavis asks what's with the get up and remarking she looks like a member of the paparazzi, she explains her parents made her join the school paper in the fashion field. Daria hates it there and wanted to be an actual reporter writing about the corruption at school.

Beavis and Butthead tries to join the gym club, but are hilariously injured by Coach Buzzcut. He angrily confronts both of them for not having the proper athletic supporters and sends them off to go buy some at the local sporting good's store. Otherwise, Beavis and Butthead will be spending the summer in Buzzcut's squat thrust seminar. This thought horrifies the boys enough having to deal with the latter's sadism.

At the sporting goods store, Beavis and Butthead tries the smallest athletic supporters they can find, but even those feel big on them. The owner Buddy, gives them eyepatches instead. The boys goes back in the locker room to try them on. Daria appears minutes later to ask about active wear, but later hears Beavis and Butthead's joy in finding proper athletic supporters. They come out with no pants on to admire it. Daria briefly does a double take and announcing how much smaller the supporters are, before taking their picture to their horror. Beavis and Butthead pull their shirts down in embarrassment and she smiles.

The next day, Buzzcut reads Beavis and Butthead's self-written note asking him to excuse them from wearing athletic supporters and claiming they were unable to fit them, nor find them because of a shortage. The boys are hoping to get out of joining the gym club. Not believing Beavis and Butthead for a minute, he produces a newspaper article from Daria with their horrified expressions and announcing they had no trouble finding the necessary equipment. He laughs briefly before ordering the class to do their squat thrust. Beavis and Butthead struggles to do the exercise and eventually pass out.

Buzzcut: (Reading Beavis and Butt-Head's self-written note) Please excuse Beavis and Butt-head from wearing althetic sip-otters. They were unable to buy them because of a national sip-otter shortage. Hell that's funny boys. (reveals a school paper that Daria wrote about with the boys pantless and wearing eyepatches) According to the local press here, you had no trouble at all locating the necessary equipment.

Beavis: Cool! Snug 'nads!
