Hoser Inspiration?

Bob and Doug McKenzie are back. The two characters, who first debuted in 1980 on the comedy sketch TV spoof SCTV, are the stars of a new cartoon series, which will begin airing on Global TV stations in Canada this Sunday. Seeing a newspaper article about the hosers' return to action this morning made a question pop to mind. Were the McKenzies an influence on another duo of dumbness, Beavis and Butthead? It's not hard to see the similiarities, two dopey dudes making comments on current culture while not realising what the world thinks of them. Of course Bob and Doug are smarter than Beavis and Butthead, but then so is a turnip.
