Beavis and Butthead "Oil Change" Episode

Nowadays almost every TV show you ever watched is available on DVD.. but there are a few exceptions. The problem is that if you had a lot of music mixed into your show, you have to negotiate new licensing fees for every song you used, and for a lot of shows that's just way too expensive.

One of my all-time favorites, "Freaks and Geeks," didn't get a DVD treatment for years cuz of these rules, and when it finally did come out the price had to be crazy high to offset all that licensing. And Beavis and Butthead has still never been released in its original form.. the DVDs edit out most of their music video commentary, which was of course the best part of the show.

So until they figure out a licensing system that doesn't suck, the only way to find the original B&B shows is to catch them online, like you can with this vintage episode:
