Butt-head

The pejorative nickname of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage) given to him by his obnoxious older brother Wayne Arnold (Jason Hervey) on the sitcom THE WONDER YEARS/ABC/1988-93.

Note: On the sitcom THE DREW CAREY SHOW/ABC/1995-2003 Oswald (Diedrich Bader) revealed that he was nicknamed “Butt-head” by his mother, because, “When I was born I came out backwards. I didn’t have oxygen for two whole minutes.”

Butt-head was also the name of a dumb, crude, and thoughtless teenager on the cartoon series BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD/MTV/1993-97.
