Are Beavis And Buttheads Brothers? Where Are Their Parents?

Are Beavis and Buttheads brothers? With how their relationship is painted out in the show, fans have made the craziest theories about their background and how these characters become friends and live together. Their parents are never around, and viewers don’t know the reason why they move in and live together for so long. This post will debunk fan theories about their relationship.

In the film Beavis and Butthead Do America, Beavis and Buttheads meet 2 men who are similar to them in personality and appearance but older. It’s strongly indicated that at least one of them is Beavis and/or Buttheads’s father. This scenario prompted controversy among fans, with most agreeing that the two are half-brothers or cousins. 

Are Beavis And Buttheads Brothers?

This theory surged for the first time after the movie Beavis and Butthead Do America aired. The pair of friends encounter 2 wanderers much older than them. The exciting part is that both of the older men look a lot like Beavis and Buttheads and share the same character traits.

One of them, which resembles Butthead, claims that he is the only one who “scored” with women. So there are 2 theories here: Beavis and Buttheads are either full or half siblings. Fans also suspect that the 2 older drifters are brothers. So if they are Beavis and Butthead’s birth fathers, it means that the pals are cousins.

So, are Beavis and Buttheads brothers? By far, it isn’t 100% sure if their claims are valid. So the debate still lies. But, many fans still believe that the duo is only friends, given their chemistry and interaction. The other group sticks to the evidence given in Beavis and Butthead Do America.

Beavis And Butthead Parents

If Beavis and Butthead have a chance of being related siblings, where are their parents? Here is what we know about their “lightbringers.”

Beavis and Butthead moms

Assuming that the 2 drifters are really Beavis and Butthead’s dads, the one that resembles Butthead claimed to have had affairs with two women in their town, and they were both “sluts.” He’s definitely referring to their moms. This shows that both of their mothers are promiscuous and are most likely best friends. Beavis and Butthead’s mums are prostitutes who forced the boys to live apart from them so they wouldn’t see them at work.

The two pals meet two more friends who are significantly older than them. The intriguing thing is that both older men resemble Beavis and Butthead.

One of them, who looks like Butthead, claims to be the only one who has “scored” with women. Fans made a theory that the old drifters were brothers. So, assuming they are Beavis and Butthead’s biological fathers, the boys should be cousins.

What happened to Beavis and Buttheads mom?

Their moms may be prostitutes and are still working the job. On the other hand, the pals never mentioned being orphans or not knowing their parents, so it’s not too illogical to assume that their moms are still alive.

  1. oh I think this is really bad misnformation because nowhere in the movie (do america) does it say that the two drifters/roadies are brothers? it says that theyre 2 possible genetic matches for a father, being Beavis and Butthead’s dads, but it does not mention them being brothers at all so saying that they could be cousins is wrong. please look at the script/watch the movie again because nowhere does it say the older men are brothers.

  2. I have always enjoyed Beavis & Butthead which premeried on MTV back in 1993. Which ran from 1993 to 1997 during which time there was 7 seasons of the show. And the first movie which was entitled Beavis & Butthead: Do America came out in 1996. Then the revival which premeried in August of 2022 on Paramount+. But before that the show was revived in 1998 and ran for 2 seasons. Then the 2nd Beavis & Butthead movie was released on Paramount + in 2022 which was entitled Beavis & Butthead: Do The Universe. Right now there are currently 11 seasons of Beavis & Butthead and 2 movies.
