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.
