Mike said they never considered replacing him, but they changed the direction of the show and wrote around the awful situation.
Speaking of sad situations, Richard Christy wobbled in wearing his faaaavorite 'Beavis and Butthead' T-shirt and his 'King of the Hill' boxers under pants, for once. The character Butthead was sort-of based on a classmate of Mike's. Running a half marathon on about two hours of sleep was totally worth it though, as you will be able to see in this video. Christopher Evan Welch died after a three year battle with lung cancer had weakened him, even though he was in remission.
Howard threw some 'King of the Hill' trivia questions to see who could answer first and, most of the time, Richard beat the series creator.
That's our lovable hillbilly. Mike ended up doing similar shorts featuring the iconic Beavis and Butthead characters. Mike Judge with his biggest fan Richard Christy Show business renaissance man Mike Judge stopped by this morning to tell Howard all about his brilliant show business career - including current smash hit Silicon Valley - and apparently to hear Richard Christy cry, yet again, while talking about King of the Hill.
I've become friends with the band since then, and I have been through more than a few diapers at their shows something I wear so that I don't have to use the restroom and miss any songs, since all of their songs rule!

He was a smart guy, but their teacher — a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader — was extremely hot and the kid used to laugh at everything she said. He cut car ads out of the newspaper and traced them to fill in the scene. Read about his experience below and check out his epic performance above! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that 11 years later I would be playing that same song with them on stage in Greenpoint, Brooklyn at St.
Mike would imitate him and the impression became the Butthead character. He cried when 'King of the Hill' went off the air, he cried when Hank Hill's dad Cotton Hill died on the series, he cried when Mike spoke to his dad in the Hank Hill voice and today we added a new one: Naturally, Richard warbled and teared up just mentioning these things that make him cry.
They responded that they really liked the work and ended up, in Mike's words, sort of ripping him off with a character who was attached to his pen instead of his stapler. Silicon Valley is also doing quite well, and hopefully it will continue to do well, despite an fan-favorite cast member passing away last December.
