Way Down Mexico Way is the tenth episode of Season 2 of Beavis and Butt-Head. It is the 15th episode overall.

Plot[]

Beavis and Butt-Head are at home watching a T.V. commercial for salsa. After the commerical break, the veejay announces the next music video, "Mexican Radio". This gives them the idea to go to Mexico. They are taken in a dumpy truck by a narcotic smuggler named Dave. Beavis and Butt-head then make it their motive to get M-80 explosives. When they arrive at Mexico, the two ask different vendors for fireworks. When realizing that none of the vendors own M-80's they stumble upon a taco stand where they ask for two tacos. The two boys find a dog which they feed killer hot sauce to. The dog happened to belong to the owner of the taco stand so as payback, he puts death sauce in their tacos. Due to the incredible spiciness of the sauce, the boys ask the taco stand owner for some water. He then gives them unclean water, which gives the boys violent diarrhea.

The duo then come across a party where they knock a child out with a stick and steal their fireworks. In order to return from Mexico with their fireworks, Beavis and Butt-head are to smuggle illegal drugs across the border, but do not tie the condoms up before swallowing them. The drugs take effect as they are being arrested and questioned by the border patrol. The border patrol agent asks them what the capital of Texas is which they don't know. After questioning the duo they determine they are as American as they come and release them as "Mexicans know the capital of Texas" since illegal immigrants would care that they're being interrogated. This also illustrates how many people outside the United States know more about this country than some of its own citizens.

Censorship[]

  • In Act I, Beavis's line "This guy's a chodesmoker", referring to the VJ on TV, and Butt-head's response "They all are" were often edited out.
  • The episode rarely aired intact, with a completely different episode commonly airing right after the first half instead of the second half.

Trivia[]

  • This episode sometimes aired as two parts with both parts airing alongside different episodes (Example: Lawn & Garden/First half of Way Down Mexico Way, then Second half of Way Down Mexico Way/Baby Makes Uh, Three). When aired this way, the second half was titled "Way Down Mexico Way (Part 2)."
  • Released on the "Too Dumb For TV" PAL VHS tape.
  • Mike Judge and John Andrews sang the "Pass the Old El Grasso" jingle, which was a parody of "Pass the Old El Paso"
  • During the "Adios Mexico" music video, the footbaths and firecrackers from the final act are still present, making this one of the few episodes where an element from the main story-line is tied into the video segments.
