Fisher, Roy (1997) "Teachers' Hegemony Sucks": examining Beavis and Butt-head for signs of life. Educational Studies, 23 (3). pp. 417-428. ISSN 0305-5698

The analysis of cultural artefacts, such as cartoons and films, provides the potential to gain insights into both the professional identities of teachers and the behaviour and self-concepts of students. This paper suggests that the ostensibly banal animated cartoon characters Beavis and Butt-head offer some utility in this respect. The paper explores aspects of the stereotypes and behaviour represented in the Beavis and Butt-head series and briefly discusses some possible interpretations of these images
