"SPF" is the first episode of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law season two, and the tenth overall. It aired on January 1, 2004 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block. It was written by series creators, Michael Ouweleen and Erik Richter, produced by Evan W. Adler, and directed by Richard Ferguson-Hull. The Hanna-Barbera series ridiculed in this episode is not one particular series, but a combination of mostly the co-stars of Hokey Wolf and Wally Gator.

Harvey has a cancer scare while he represents Ding-a-Ling, who goes to court when he finds his name being used as the address for a porn site.
