Judge adjourns MTV show

In what is surely the foolproof mark of growing status in Hollywood, Mike Judge is consistently unavailable for comment these days about his MTV creation “Beavis and Butt-head,” about pending movie and TV deals, about his life, about everything.

Even without Judge’s comments, however, this much is known about the white-hot animation king:

The 34-year-old won’t be doing any more “Beavis” segments for MTV after this year’s allotment of 15 originals is exhausted. But MTV admits that the door remains open to making a series of “Beavis” specials.

Judge is poised to sign a deal with MTV any week now for a sequel to his bigscreen hit “Beavis and Butt-head Do America,” the highest-grossing non-Disney animated film ever at $63.1 million.

The lofty success of Judge’s Fox primetime animated hit “King of the Hill” has given him primetime clout to go along with his cutting-edge counterculture artist stature, and convinced MTV and Paramount to lock up his services in a multiyear, multiproject deal before some competitor like Rupert Murdoch gets his paws on him.

Mike Judge isn’t just for dumb kids anymore. The world owns him now.
