Beavis and Butt-Head

Stewart Stevenson is a recurring character in Beavis and Butt-Head. He is a nerdy, wimpy and obese teen lacking in self esteem who lives nearby the boys. He often tries to hang out with Beavis and Butt-Head, thinking himself to be their best friend, but they always end up bullying him or brutally taking advantage of him. He is also associated with a conservative Christian Youth Group called Positive Acting Teens (PATs).

He was originally voiced by Adam Welsh. However, Thomas Middleditch voiced him for Season 8, followed by series writer Sam Johnson voicing him in Season 9.


Stewart is one of the most genuinely nice characters of the series, and one of the only characters who actually likes/tolerates the titular duo (Mr. Van Driessen, Cassandra, his mom (most of the time), Marcy Anderson, Tom Anderson (when he doesn't recognize them), the Burger World manager, and occasionally Daria being the other characters). He looks up to the duo and often tries to hang out with them, only to get bullied or dismissed by them in return.

Despite their treatment of him and the many times they have landed him in trouble, Stewart's opinion of the boys never seems to change. Stewart is polite, kind, and friendly towards everyone he meets, but his somewhat sheltered and coddled nature makes him somewhat naive and spineless, as he constantly idolizes the duo no matter what they do to him.

Physical appearance[]

Stewart is significantly shorter than the duo, with shoulder length blond hair, a black "Winger" T-shirt ("I ❤ Unicorns" in merchandise), blue shorts, white socks and black shoes much like what the duo wear. He is also slack-jawed, as his buck teeth are shown most of the time.

As an adult, Stewart is balding at the top, and wears a forest green jacket with dark beige pants and brown shoes. However, he retains the "Winger" T-shirt from his youth.

Relationship with Beavis and Butt-head[]

Stewart greatly admires Beavis and Butt-head and believes they are his best friends, although it's Butt-Head that enjoys taking advantage of the "relationship", relating to him mostly in the same way that Todd relates to them.

Beavis and Butt-head bully Stewart and regularly take advantage of his attempts to befriend them, usually resulting in Stewart getting in trouble with his parents or another member of authority for something actually done by the duo. These include densely destroying his house and parent's belongings in the pursuit of something to do when they come over, and using his computer experience to look at porn on the school's computers, stripping him of his computer privileges, and earning him detention with the boys. They have also caused his family distress at times too, like when they were responsible for an angry man's physical abuse of Stewart's father (who was actually trying to pin the blame on Stewart to save his own skin), and when they let robbers posing as moving men take many of the family's possessions and wreck their house. In "Stewart Is Missing", they forgot that they locked Stewart in their own closet, causing his parents to worry sick about him.

Beavis, when not around Butt-head, is less of a bully towards him. In one instance, Beavis allows Stewart to have the majority of his nachos for a dollar ("Choke"). In It's A Miserable Life, we see if Butt-Head had never been born, Beavis and Stewart would be best friends. Just as Beavis sort of follows Butt-Head, Beavis would be Stewart's lackey and do the same goodwill charity Stewart does. Stewart would also actually be assertive and not such a pushover.

In the episode "Kidney", the old duo's relationship with Stewart hasn't changed a bit, with Stewart still thinking they are best friends and brushing off their bluntness as them kidding around, and Old Beavis and Old Butt-Head still thinking he 'sucks'. Old Beavis seems reluctant to have Stewart's kidney, thinking that having a part of Stewart inside him will make him lame, and drinks wine following the surgery to make it burst, leaving Stewart shocked and disheartened.


List of Stewart appearances in the franchise:

2022 Revival (Season 9)[]



  • Stewart's family are upper middle class, as in the episode "Kidnapped", when asked how much money his parents have, Stewart says "Oh, I'd say more than average".
  • Stewart has had different voices throughout the show's run. In his first appearance, he had a low monotonic voice, then a higher 9 year old voice, then a deeper 14 year old voice as Adam Welsh went through puberty.
  • Stewart is one of the few characters who never appeared in the movie, Beavis and Butt-head Do America, he also didn't appear in Beavis and Butt-Head Virtual Stupidity. He does, however, appear in Beavis and Butt-head Do U and Beavis and Butt-head Do The Universe.
  • Stewart probably lost his virginity to the women in "Holy Cornholio", because at the end, he exclaims "Yay, sex!".
    • He seems to have lost it in the alternate timeline of Season 9's canon as well, as he mentions having triplets in "Kidney".
  • The band Winger now sells an official shirt based on the one Stewart wears on the show.
  • He makes an appearance in the Sega Genesis video game. Just like in the "Couch Fishing" episode, he will appear if you fish a Walkman, found in the duo's couch, out the window. He tells the duo "there is a way to be closer to GWAR", which hints to the game having a second, more secret, ending.
  • He was voiced by teenage Adam Welsh from 1993 to 1997, but was switched to Thomas Middleditch for Season 8, due to Welsh being too old to voice him by 2011, and was then voiced by Sam Johnson as an adult.
