Celebrity Birthday of the Day – October 17

Mike Judge is the mastermind behind some of pop culture’s best comedic works, and his big break was the 1993 animated series Beavis and Butt-head. The show ran for four years and had a spin-off series in Daria, as well as numerous video games and even a feature film Beavis and Butt-head Do America. Following the end of Beavis and Butt-head in 1997, Judge created a new series King of the Hill, which gained immense popularity, running for three years with a total of 259 episodes. It’s the third-longest running prime time animated series behind The Simpsons and South Park. In 1999, Judge made his first live-action feature film Office Space, which has since become a celebrated cult comedy. In 2005, Judge directed my favourite film of his so far: Idiocracy. It’s as much a comedy as it is a sci-fi horror film! Since Idiocracy, Judge gas written and directed the film Extract and had a brief run at a new animated series The Goode Family before the show was pulled after only one season. Lame! Mike Judge turns 50 today.
