Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law is an American adult animated superhero/courtroom drama spoof TV series produced by Williams Street and Allied Art & Science for Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, Adult Swim. It ran from 2000 to 2007, airing 39 episodes.
The series is a spin-off spoof of the more kid-friendly Hanna-Barbera series from the 1950s-80s, with Birdman from the Birdman segments of Birdman and the Galaxy Trio as a starting point, who has gone from fighting crime as a superhero to serving justice in a courtroom, representing the law firm Sebben & Sebben, with the staff mostly comprised of the heroes of Birdman, while his rivals are made up of past villains. Birdman's clientele is made up of usually warped stars from Hanna-Barbera series that either predate or came after Birdman. The primary object of this is to poke fun at the adult innuendos in Hanna-Barbera's many shows that were usually aired in Saturday morning blocks for children.
The entire series has been released on DVD.
