As he turned, The Legend of Zelda animated cartoon from the late 1980s revived by the voices from Beavis and Butt-Head making for an enjoyable watch. Recently video editor Khalid Shahin, who has made several animation edits over the years, has quickly tied the two together, and the result, “The Legend of Beavis,” is a boon.
The video, which you can watch above, uses the animation from The Legend of Zelda a cartoon with lip configuration and character insults largely made by Shahin’s sister to various snippets of Beavis and Butt-Head making … well, Beavis and Butt-Head stuff. Beavis features our hero, Link, while Butt-Head voices King Harkinian and Zelda himself apparently as the only voice straight from the original cartoon. But taken together in such a clever way, it makes it feel like Beavis and Butt-Head are somehow playing a Zelda video game.
