Abstract

In the contemporary society, the television and media such as the internet have replaced the traditional institutions of learning of and socialization. Today, children derive their role models and identity from the media rather than their teachers, schools, or guardians. Popular television programs, music, and video games are currently used to measure the required social standards and provide the youth with idols. One such television program is the Beavis and Butthead series. This animated series, created by Mike Judge in 1993, “has emerged as one of the most popular and controversial artefacts of youth culture” (Kellner 85).

Keywords: violence, youngsters, teens, Beavis and Butthead
