Birdman is an American animated superhero action series of segments as part of Birdman and the Galaxy Trio, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for NBC's Saturday morning programming. It ran from 1967 to 1968, airing 20 episodes that spanned one season. It led to the whimsical Adult Swim spin-off, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law in the 2000s.
Birdman, who receives his powers from the sun, battles supervillains who try and take over the world.
The entire series has been released on DVD.
The music was composed by Ted Nichols.
Birdman took a comedic turn in the late 1990s, when Cartoon Network aired the act break short "Coffee Break," and then doubled their efforts with the Adult Swim sequel/spin-off spoof series Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, from 2000 to 2007. In 2018, it was brought back for the one-off special, Harvey Birdman: Attorney General. Then astonishingly in 2020, Adult Swim launched the second spin-off, Birdgirl.
