Coach Buzzcut


Coach Buzzcut

Bradley Buzzcut, better known as Mr. Buzzcut or Coach Buzzcut, is a character in the cartoon series "Beavis and Butt-Head", voiced by Mike Judge. The angry, loud-mouthed, antisocial Buzzcut dislikes Beavis and Butt-Head nearly as much as Principal McVicker.

He is in charge of Physical Education and Math, and his attitude clearly indicates that he has a military background in the United States Marine Corps. Coach Buzzcut has a tattoo of a ship on his chest, indicating that he served with a naval detachment, and in one episode, during a period of distress, he shouts, "A Marine can stand anything!". The Marine connection is evidenced by his choice of clothes - a khaki shirt and black tie, which mimic standard service uniform articles. He does not actually have a buzz cut haircut, but a flat-top style high and tight and barks out orders at an impressive volume, occasionally rambling about his exploits during the Vietnam war ("Buff 'N' Stuff"). He can also take a kick to the crotch without suffering much discomfort, as he shows after ordering Butt-head to "kick him in the jimmy" in the weight room.

He hates Beavis and Butt-Head, and takes every opportunity to attempt to pound discipline into them. Although he never changes their behavior, Beavis and Butt-Head do seem to follow his orders most of the time: examples include their buying athletic supporters on Buzzcut's orders for PE class, refraining from laughter during a class when Buzzcut is deliberately saying smutty-funny things, and going to the hospital on Buzzcut's orders to treat a dog bite on Beavis' leg. Part of why the duo follow Buzzcut's instructions more is perhaps the fact that Buzzcut is a far stricter disciplinarian than Van Driessen and would surely punish the two if they did not follow his orders. Yet Beavis and Butt-Head often strike back with petty acts of revenge, such as by pouring sugar into the fuel tank of Buzzcut's car, in order to seize the engine ("Baby Makes, uh, Three"). Though he hates the two boys, he is protective of all his students, including the duo, declaring that "This is my class! I do the ass kicking around here" (in "Candy Sale".) In that episode, it is also revealed that he is well-versed in martial arts. In the episode "P.T.A", Buzzcut receives a letter from the president of the 'Highland High School Subcommittee on Abuse' which reads: "Dear Mr Buzzcut, We regret to inform you that your history of abuse of two students has come to our attention.".Coach Buzzcut gets an opportunity to psychologically torture Beavis and Butt-Head when the pair are banned from laughing in class. Buzzcut is in charge of their sex education class and delights in using the words "masturbation," "sexual intercourse," "venereal disease," "penis," "vagina," "testicles," "scrotum" and "clitoris," along with the names of classmates Butkus, Gaylord and Highman, which Beavis and Butt-Head find irresistibly funny and strain to avoid giggling at ("No Laughing"). Another time Buzzcut managed to get at Beavis and Butt-Head is when he demonstrates CPR during swim class, using the boys as live versions of CPR training dummies. Buzzcut then personally performed CPR on them both, after the students all refused to perform on Beavis and Butt-Head. Though Buzzcut managed to embarrass and gross-out the boys, it is a pyrrhic victory at best; Buzzcut is equally disgusted and embarrassed (though he hid behind his Marine antics as usual) by this act ("Water Safety"). (In another scene in "Beavis and Butt-head are Dead," when McVicker passes out from a heart attack upon seeing the allegedly dead duo wander into the school, and Buzzcut similarly performs CPR on him, they laugh and respond "Then Buzzcut made out with him."). In the episode Wet Behind Rears, Beavis and Butt-Head refuse to take a shower and Buzzcutt hears the fire drill and angrly forces Beavis and Butt-Head who are in their underwear to go outside. They do only to be embarrassed once again as it was a set up between Buzzcut and McVicker.

Buzzcut is the only main character on the show to alternate between outfits regularly. In some episodes, he wears the Marine-like suit referenced earlier in this article. On other occasions, he appears in a white t-shirt and dark shorts, with the word "coach" on the front of his shirt, which his coaching is evidenced by.
