Beavis and Butt-headBeavis & Butt-head Fire - In October 1993, the creators of the top-rated cable channel animated series BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD/MTV/1993-97 "literally" came under fire for allegedly inspiring a 5-year-old child to start a fatal fire. Responding to public criticism, MTV agreed to broadcast the show in a later time spot so that children wouldn't be influenced by the goings-on of the show's main characters (who liked to burn things); and the writers of the show agreed not to use references to "fires" in the future. The program, however, still continued its constant references to masturbation, alcohol consumption and sex. See also - LANGUAGES & PHRASES: "Beavis & Butt-head Vulgar Vocabulary"
