On This Day: Mike Judge’s ‘Office Space’ Hits Theaters
You couldn’t really make a live-action version of Beavis and Butthead… Could you?
Well, we’re just happy one of the cartoons made by Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge was able to be developed into a live-action film.
Office Space, which was released today in 1999, was based on an animated series Judge created for Saturday Night Live titled "Milton." The plot centered around the harrowing existence of the typical cubicle office environment, and a unified rebellion against "the man."
It just goes to show that every dog has his day and, well, "Milton" eventually got his stapler.
