"Uhh...that's cool!"

That trademark phrase, first uttered by one half of MTV's famous mid-90s, high-school slacker duo, is coming back to the airwaves this summer as the music video network plans to resurrect "Beavis and Butt-Head," reports Gawker.

The cartoon, which aired from 1993 to 1997 and spawned a full-length motion picture, was known for its ridiculous cast and its biting societal and music video critiques. It also became a cultural lightning rod at times, becoming embroiled in controversies over its depictions of wild, teenage behavior (Beavis' obsession with flames and chant of "FIRE! FIRE!"  was partially blamed for the death of a small child whose brother lit their trailer ablaze after watching the show) and its perceived misogyny.

The updated version promises to retain the same animation format and series creator Mike Judge, who went on to create "King of the Hill" and direct "Office Space," will once again be involved with the show's production.

So make sure to hide the sugar from the Great Cornholio and settle in to hear the boys muse about, say, "Jersey Shore."
