VICE Interview with Beavis and Butt-Head Mastermind, Mike Judge

I noticed that the show's logo now says "Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-Head" rather than "MTV's." I feel like I've seen it this way on the DVD boxes of the old episodes, but it was surprising to see that it was going to carry over to TV. Got any good dirt on this subtle but important change?

.... Years later the movie came out and they wanted a sequel. I was unhappy with some stuff, and I just did a fuck-you negotiation with them [laughs]. At one point my lawyer said, "You want to ask them to call it Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-Head?" and I said, "Yeah, go for it." I kind of forgot that we agreed to that, and then when we were redesigning the logo I was like "Wow, OK." Normally I wouldn't splash my name all over something, but if it's between MTV's Beavis and Butt-Head or Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-Head, I'll take it.
