Tv Season Info

Risqué cartoon about a superhero lawyer who works cases involving (and spoofing) Hanna-Barbera characters like Fred Flintstone (suspected of mob activity) and Scooby-Doo (busted, along with Shaggy, for drug possession). Harvey himself was actually a creation of the 1960s, though he wasn't practicing law then. The series airs as part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block.

Adult Swim struck gold with its series "Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law."

For most of the first season, the show was chaotically structured like a hellzappopin' sketch series, but swerved into a semblance of continuity and character-building for a two-part season finale that would define the remainder of the series.

Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law remains the most solid (if rarely produced) Adult Swim show out there. Of course, if you're not a big fan of the other Adult Swim stuff, you still might not be a huge supporter of this either.

Not only are the plots ludicrous, the jokes hilarious, and the characters endearing; this show features some incredible voice talent.

It's everything we've come to expect from modern cartoons that appeal to adults and kids.
