Beavis and Butt-Head

The Good Deed is the 14th episode of Season 9 of Beavis and Butt-Head and the 236th episode overall.


Beavis and Butt-Head try to do a good deed by replacing the punch for the school dance with insect repellent they think is an aphrodisiac.


As Mr. Van Driessen is dismissing his class for the day, he reminds everyone that the school dance is that evening. Cody asks Beavis and Butt-Head if they're going, but Butt-Head says they have plans to drink beer and kick ass instead. However, the two go hang out behind Tom Anderson's house with no beer and no ass. Butt-Head tells Beavis to kick a grasshopper's ass while he looks for beer, but the grasshopper starts attacking Beavis. When Mr. Anderson notices, he believes the boys are having pest problems. He shows them his container of highly toxic Mexican pesticide (DDT) and says they can use it, but warns them not to touch it as it is highly poisonous. Not understanding what it is, Butt-Head tries to read the label and concludes it is "Spanish fly". He explains to Beavis that it makes people want to score (like them), and they get the idea that if everyone drank it then everyone would be able to score and the world would be a better place.

The boys vow to do this "good deed" and drag the pesticide container all the way to the school's gymnasium as the dance is being set up. They dump the punch Van Driessen made onto the floor and fill the bowl with pesticide. Once the dance has begun, the duo are eagerly waiting by the bowl for their "good deed" to unfold, but Beavis suggests they should drink it before everyone else uses it up out of fear of missing out and not getting any. Despite retching with every gulp, the duo keep drinking the pesticide, arguing over the other getting to drink more. Eventually, Beavis and Butt-Head are laying on the bleachers in a sickened state, having emptied the bowl. Van Driessen approaches wondering where the punch he made went, and the boys vomit onto the floor.

Later, Beavis and Butt-Head are in the hospital where a doctor explains how the pesticide damaged their brains and how miraculous it is that they didn't die. However, another doctor states that their brain scans were before the incident, as the boys were previously at hospital to get toy soldiers removed from their nasal cavities, so they give up on them. Beavis and Butt-Head conclude that good deeds suck and agree to never do a good deed for others ever again, and they both flatline and die.

  • This is Marcie Anderson's first physical appearance since "Shopping Cart" in Season 7. She was only mentioned in a couple of episodes prior to this, and is voiced by Toks Olagundoye here.
    • This is the second time Marcie is voiced by an actual woman, rather than Mike Judge. The first being Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, where she was voiced by Lisa Kathleen-Collins.
  • A month prior to the episode's events, Beavis and Butt-Head stuck toy soldiers up their noses, claiming that they "made the ultimate sacrifice".
  • Van Driessen makes festive punch for the school dance, before the duo replace it with DDT.
  • The duo previously spiked a drink with Spanish fly in the episode "Spanish Fly", with disastrous results. However, that was proper Spanish fly, unlike this episode, where they mistake something else more dangerous for it.
  • This episode and its sister both have the duo in hospital with the same female doctor.
