In. Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law — Hide Spoilers. Harvey Birdman has long since had his day as a superhero but has now taken up a job as a lawyer at the firm of Sebben and Sebben. The move offers him a welcome change of pace but he still finds himself surrounded by all the same strange characters and goings-on. I have seen this series advertised when in the US in the past but never bothered to stay up and watch it, however on my last visit I gave it a try.
The show is hard to describe because it is just very weird. The characters and basic plots spoof the world of the square-jawed superheroes and supervillians by placing them in the office environment and making their characters even more exaggerated. Birdman himself is the most obvious example as he is now a bit of a fool despite his massive chest, although I also really enjoy the eye-patch sporting, womanising boss Sebben.
It is all a bit too silly at times and some of it just occasionally feel like it is being weird just for the sake of it but, for me, the majority of the superhero spoof aspect carried it well enough. The animation is true to the superhero genre and everything looks good with plenty of imaginative touches all round. The voice work is enjoyably silly with Gary Cole doing a great job in the lead role.
Colbert is just as good as Phil, really getting into the feel of the character and the series. The support cast are generally good with some unusual guest voices in there. Overall this is an acquired taste and naturally some will love it while other hate it. Not for everyone but certainly worth a look if you get the chance. Was this review helpful? Quinoa 25 January This is a series that, as with Robot Chicken and Metalocalypse and other Cartoon Network programs, never overstays its welcome.
Even when not all of its silly jokes connect there's still a charm to the program, not as crude as 'Chicken' but with a similar aim: make it quick and fast and try and fill up the time with gags that are for anyone who has watched Hannah Barbera or Superfriends or any given of 60s - 70s cartoons. Harvey Birdman is a cool kind of attorney who doesn't sweat the big case or challenge, even if it's Yogi Bear's Boo-Boo as the Unabomber or "Unaboo-boo", ho-ho, really or a divorce between We get characters quite familiar Scooby Doo and kind of not well known that "Huge" Indian is a great big genital joke if we've ever seen one, and it works.
It also has some creative voice work to go with the animation Stephen Colbert is fantastic as Birdman's boss for one , and we get some classic moments of awkward tension broken with the over-extended laughing by the characters or some totally zany shenanigans.
In short, watch it in its present state, which is an episode or two in-between longer programs, and you'll get some way better than average filler. Collecting episodes one through 13, or roughly one and a half seasons, this first DVD of Birdman's antics are for the most part a delight to watch. It's one of those shows that you either get the humor of or not such as Arrested Development, Family, or pretty much any other Adult swim cartoon. I myself find it hilarious. And the legal adventures of Harvey Birdman, his pet falcon, assistant Peanut, and archenemy Reducto as they interact with 'cartoon classics' as clients, hits my funny bone every time I watch it.
Standout episodes in this DVD would have to be the insanely great "Trio's Company", the "Deadomutt" 2-parter, and the now classic "Very Personal Injury", but all the episodes are very good. Did ya get that thing I sent ya? The first show that ever aired on Cartoon Network's revolutionary Adult Swim lineup, this series of minute episodes has aired sporadically over the last six years. It will probably only work for those who, like me, were raised on cheap, awful Hanna-Barbera cartoons. The premise is that superhero Birdman has now retired from fighting crime and has become a defense attorney.
Most of his clients are Hanna-Barbera characters. The appeal of the show is its quick wit. The lines and visual jokes are delivered at such a rapid speed, it can be difficult to keep up. Look away for a second, and you might miss the funniest joke in the episode.
Which is actually cool, because it makes the episodes worth watching multiple times. The best character in the show is Peter Potamus, who was originally a hippo who could travel through time in his magical balloon. Now he's a lawyer working at the same firm as Birdman. His character is that of a total lecher, and he often pops up randomly asking characters in a suggestive manner: "Didja get that thing I sent ya? Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law is a great television series with well written episodes and a top notch voice cast. It is a really bizarre show that fans of both Adult Swim's content and Hanna Barbera cartoons will enjoy.
The characters, most of whom are based off original HB characters, are terrific, with a lot of scope and personality put in to them in just 11 minute programmes, Harvey and Phil stand out in particular. However, it does suffer from the same problem as most Adult Swim shows, in that it sometimes gets too convoluted for its own good. There are episodes that go to uncomfortable places that are not even humorous, more so just looking for a reaction. The voice cast is all around tremendous, Gary Cole is top notch as Harvey, making his ridiculous dialogue always sound authentic, and Stephen Colbert knocks it out of the park in his various roles.
Ridiculously weird and enjoyable. Strange from the get go, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law certainly is not for everyone, but who it is for will love it. A former superhero takes up a career in law to protect well known cartoon characters. CuriosityKilledShawn 15 August I first came across Birdman while on holiday in Majorca when I was I remember vividly watching it with these 2 hot German twins and laughing whenever he shouted 'Bi-ii-irdMAN'.
It was really, really corny. But this was back in the day when Cartoon Network didn't have much to show other than the really old-fashioned 's and 70's stuff. The last thing I ever imagined is that Birdman would come back in the 21st century to be re-invented as Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law at the Sebben and Sebben law firm. He's a bit of a dunderhead. And a bighead and a sociophobe and rude but you can't help but love him. Avenger is still his sidekick only cuter than he was ly and his boss is Phil Ken Sebben, a one-eyed ladies man.
Among the various, random people who work for the firm are Peanut a Birdman wannabe , Peter Potamus, Reducto and a big cuddly bear who always seems to be smiling and applauding all on his own at inappropriate moments. Getting in the way of cases going smoothly are and abundance of rapid-fire jokes that come at you from all angles and will probably disorientate you if you're not sure where they're coming from.
Sometimes you might have to watch an episode twice as the the dialogue is usually delivered very quickly and you might lose your place among the cryptic references and wildly outlandish humor. In truth, it's a show for Adults.
Even though the jokes are only mildly suggestive there is no way could fully understand everything that is going on unless they are an uber-uber-geek. This is a show made for people who love stuff like Family Guy, not Spongebob Squarepants. Oh, and I love that theme song. They must release some kind of soundtrack CD for this show. The show takes an adult perspective of the Hannah Barbera characters in the most unexpected and unpredictable ways. The stories are very well written and many parts of the show made me laugh a lot. The characters are very likable ,the voices are good and everything in this show is very funny and original.
From the first episode "Bannon Custody Battle " the show catch me. I love the weirdness of this show. I guess that is one of the best things of the show ,for it unusual style of comedy. One of the most demented things I've seen since vintage 'Ren and Stimpy'. Pure genius! Infofreak 27 March Many of my all time favourite TV shows haven't been the ones hyped to death, but the obscure ones that you "discover" for yourself. I don't know if it achieved any kind of audience in the US, but it suddenly appeared out of nowhere here in Australia and was shown at an odd time slot with little fanfare.
I am now hooked for life! For anybody who hasn't seen the show it features Birdman the 60s Hanna Barbera cartoon character reinvented as Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. Each episode he defends a cartoon client accused of some crime e. Shaggy and Scooby Doo for dope, Fred Flintstone for racketeering. Plus there are lots of strange gay in-jokes and surreal bits and pieces which make it one of the most demented things I've seen since vintage 'Ren and Stimpy'. My favourite characters are Reducto and Birdman's nutty eye-patch wearing boss. LoneWolfAndCub 24 July Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law is one nutty, wrong, but hilarious show.
Featuring characters from the old Hanna-Barbera shows, this show doesn't fail when it comes to laughter. Harvey Birdman has given up being a superhero and is now a lawyer who defends many cartoon characters who run into the law. Many will enjoy the references to the old cartoons and the somewhat warped humour. The many homosexual underlinings of the characters is also quite funny.
This show is recommended to everyone!! The randomness may not appeal to everyone, but the show is well worth at least one view. Hanna-Barbera For Adults broadfoot 19 April For some reason, I loved this show from the first episode I saw. It is so interesting to see how many old Hanna-Barbera characters are getting in trouble with the law, and they need Harvey Birdman to bail them out! I remember one episode where Shaggy and Scooby-Doo get arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana and Birdman represents them. Of course, Birdman and his clients win in the end.
Scrappy-Doo then makes a brief appearance at the end, but is then lifted up and carried away by Birdman's falcon sidekick. I thought "Goodbye Scrappy How about some new episodes? I have just been getting into the Adult Swim portion of Cartoon Network's lineup, and it's really a fun time. First you get Home Movies, then this cool 15 ditty that's usually paired with The Brak Show another hilarious 'toon! Harvey is an attorney who takes the cases of famous animated characters of yore, from Shaggy and Scooby to Fred Flintstone.Is harvey birdman gay
