MTV has moved its early evening showings of "Beavis and Butt-head" to a 10:30 p.m. time slot where young children presumably will not be watching.
It's a move to which Beavis and Butt-head might respond with their trademark "Heh-heh. Heh-heh. Cool," since many youngsters stay up late anyway or know how to program their VCRs better than their parents do. The MTV move took effect last night.
The cult cartoon series came under fire during the past two weeks, after an Ohio mother blamed Beavis and Butt-head's pyrotechnic hi-jinks (lighting fires and firecrackers) and sayings ("Fire is good.") for the death of her 2-year-old daughter after her 5-year-old son, a fan of the show, set their home ablaze.
