Storyline

Past cases involve custody of Jonny Quest, a copyright infringement case between the Chan Clan and Jabberjaw, and Fred Flintstone's possible mob connections. Written by Mike Konczewski

Quirky, odd, funny
18 March 2003 | by Marshall_DCSee all my reviews

Another member of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, it features Harvey Birdman, former crime-fighter and now super hero lawyer; Avenger, his trusted falcon aid and typist; and Peanut, his multi-talented and borderline psychotic legal secretary.

Parodying many famous cartoon characters (Scooby Doo, the Superfriends, Fred Flintstone, among others) the humor is off-beat, hip and often surprisingly subtle.

Main-stream sitcom fans probably won't get it, but those with a taste for the eclectic or the campy will end up laughing out loud.
