Batman and Harvey Birdman



I remembered Birdman from Hanna-Barbara's World of Super Adventure when I was a kid but had not paid attention to him for years.  Decades later, I stumbled onto Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block.  I have to admit that some of the episodes had me laughing out loud, especially when Scooby and Shaggy were suspected of drug use, Apache Chief loses his growing ability following being scalded with hit coffee, and of course Fred Flintstone as the Yabba-Dabba-Don.  The show has gotten increasingly more bizarre and the more recent stows seem to be geared towards the under the influence college crowd, but that first season was a hoot.

Dave sez,

I have to admit, I've never seen Birdman or Harvey Birdman...Is it anything like the Blue Falcon?

Dave, the shows are closer in tone to Space Ghost and Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.

I never watched him as Harvey Birdman attourney at law. I did see him as Birdman and then forgot about him till I created my own hero and called him Birdman. Someone told me that name was taken and I remembered him. But I digress.
I love the "Golden age classic" Wings of War. Did you know when the DVD of the Justice League cartoons from the 60's was released they made a mistake on part of the cover and had Birdman as Hawkman? :)

I boycotted "Harvey Birdman." Totally and shamelessly.
