From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frog Baseball is the pilot episode of Beavis and Butt-head, created by Mike Judge in 1992 for MTV's Liquid Television. It is only 2:53 long, one of the shortest episodes of the series. It is available on Disc 3 of Volume 3 of The Mike Judge Collection as a special feature.

Plot

While messing around in a field, Beavis and Butt-head spot a frog and proceed to play baseball with it. When they kill the frog, they see a poodle and charge after it with a baseball bat. The credits roll as you hear the duo hit the poodle with a bat and the poodle yelping in pain (not seen).

Cultural References

The duo play Black Sabbath's Iron Man and Deep Purple's Smoke on the Water on Air Guitar.

The October 1974 issue of National Lampoon magazine carried an illustrated story called Frog Baseball.[1] The story is about two boys, Tom and Dean, describing their passion for playing the game. Says Tom: "The real fun's whacking the living shit out of these goddamn frogs and watching the poor bastards go flying through the air all busted up." It's unknown whether this piece may have influenced the Mike Judge Beavis and Butt-head debut video of the same name.
