The Great Cornholio

From DariaWiki

If you know about Beavis and Butt-head, you know THIS one. It was written by Mike Judge and aired 15 July 1994.


Beavis and Butt-head go to Stewart's house because Butt-head heard "he has diarrhea". Stewart's mom gives them both breakfast burritos but after taking a bite, they are disgusted to find that the burritos "taste like crap" and "have eggs". They believe that she "tricked" them and raid the cupboards to find something better to eat. Beavis finds all the junk food and quickly devours it all.

At school, the sugar consumption causes Beavis to freak out, pull up his shirt, and start referring to himself as Cornholio. In his rampage of annoyance, he confronts Daria Morgendorffer:

  • Daria: Get out of here, Beavis!
  • Beavis: Ummm.... okay.

Thus the Great Cornholio stalks the school, screaming for "TEE PEE" in the toilets, interrupting Mr. Herrera's Spanish class, and generally annoying everyone until he's sent to Principal McVicker's office. Uncharacteristically, Beavis apologizes for his actions. A surprised Mr. McVicker lets him go, feeling Beavis is turning a corner, but foolishly allows him to take the candy that was on his desk. This only causes him to become Cornholio again and continue to stalk the school...


  • Mike Judge has said he wrote this as a response to an article that claimed sugar didn't make kids hyper (and Van Driessen references it in the story).
  • Daria has a rematch with Cornholio in the comics, in "The Great Bungholio".
  • This episode appears in the movie Clueless.
