"Shoyu Weenie" is the fifth episode of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law season one. It aired on July 21, 2002 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block. It was written by series creators, Michael Ouweleen and Erik Richter, and directed by Ben Jones. The Hanna-Barbera series ridiculed in this episode is The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan, and to a lesser extent Jabberjaw. The main cast of the former has now been reworked as an entirely Japanese-only speaking family known as the Mirimotos/Shoyu Weenie.

Shoyu Weenie travels from Japan to America to sue the Neptunes for ripping off one of their songs.

Behind the scenes

  • "Shoyu Weenie" is a play on "Show your weenie."
  • Aside from the Chan Clan being changed, Dr. Melody is also a pastiche of Quinn Darien from the TV series Godzilla.


  • Some of the kids performing at Tokyo Stadium aren't the ones who traveled to America.
  • When Harvey blocks Reducto's laser, the sign of "The Bird Cage" changes the last word's position so that instead of being underneath the second word, it's now next to it.
