Principal Richard Dick McVicker (better known as Mr. McVicker, McVicker, or McDicker by Beavis and Butt-head) is the main antagonist of the animated series Beavis and Butt-head and a minor antagonist in Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.
As the principal of Highland High School, McVicker is arguably Beavis and Butt-head's arch-nemesis. McVicker is shakey and hates the two. At times, he becomes so shaky and upset that he has to take pills or drink alcohol to calm himself down, or on rare occasions, smoking cigarettes. The duo has unintentionally ruined McVicker's life and drove him to the edge of insanity, as shown in Breakdown. Some episodes begin with Beavis and Butt-head in his office. McVicker is known for constantly trembling and stuttering out of anxiety over Beavis and Butt-head, their antics, and his inevitably futile attempts to punish them. McVicker wore glasses and a suit. It is also revealed that he had a family.
In the season 7 finale, upon hearing the news of Beavis and Butt-head's "deaths", he stopped trembling and stuttering for the first time. He celebrated their 'deaths' by putting on the "Ricky Martin's Cup of Life". When they showed up to their own memorial services, very much alive, he suffered a heart attack. However, he survived that heart attack as shown after the series was revived after thirteen years of cancellation.
However, he still has a small modicum of hope left for the duo, or at least Beavis. In the episode, The Great Cornholio,when Beavis mumbles an apology, McVicker was so pleasantly surprised that he let Beavis go, without any punishment. This likely went away after Beavis reverted to his Cornholio persona at the end of the episode.
McVicker is an overweight middle-aged man, somewhere in the 50s to 70s, who used to have dark hair, but afterwards, he became bald. He has blue eyes that he often widens due to his trembling fits. He wears a gray business suit with a green tie, a white shirt, black shoes, and glasses.

How do I fix you idiots for good? Simple! (presses the intercom while drinking) Uhhh... Get me, Coach Buzzcut! He's gonna help you guys!
Principal McVicker's first name is Dick, but apparently, that's his middle name, so his real first name is Richard.
Despite being labelled as an antagonist, one must understand that McVicker became what he was due to Beavis and Butt-head's antics and stupidity and thus, he has lead a difficult life.
He was inspired by a band teacher that Mike Judge knew in the 7th grade. He has stated that he trembled and "always smelled like alcohol".
McVicker never seemed to notice that Beavis and Butt-head are attendants/cooks at Burger World or what they do with the food and appliances there, as seen in the episode, Customers Suck.
When sufficiently angry, McVicker shows his impressive strength by picking up Beavis and Butt-head by the neck and choking them, as seen in "Breakdown".
