Beavis and Butt-Head, Beavis Beavis and Butt-Head, Beavis

And the Halloween countdown continues ...

With a bona fide classic leading the way, as the patient and faithful Linus once again declares It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (ABC, 8/7c), as he's been doing ever since the Charles Schulz animated special premiered in 1966 (and yes, I was the target audience back then). As Lucy runs afoul of dog germs, Charlie Brown collects rocks in his trick-or-treat sack, and Snoopy rides the Sopwith Camel doghouse of his imagination into World War I battle, we can appreciate how some things never get old. (To fill out the hour, ABC includes the less memorable but relatively timely You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown, with the indefatigable Linus running for class president.)

Also not seeming to have aged — or matured — a day since they left MTV's regular rotation 14 years ago, Mike Judge's chuckling metalhead morons Beavis & Butt-head are back (10/9c) with new exploits and fresh pop-cultural targets to mock, including MTV reality swill like Jersey Shore and teen crazes like the Twilight phenom. It's yoked to the instantly forgettable new toon Good Vibes (10:30/9:30c), a more conventionally crass buddy comedy about a Jersey whale-out-of-water (voiced by Book of Mormon star Josh Gad) who moves to the California beachfront with his buxom mom (Debi Mazar), the source of more than a few of the onslaught of boob jokes that might leave even B&B bored.
