"X Gets the Crest" is the third episode of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law season three, and the twenty-third overall. It aired on August 7, 2005 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block. It was written by Michael Ouweleen and Erik Richter, and directed by Richard Ferguson-Hull. The Hanna-Barbera series ridiculed in this episode is Ricochet Rabbit.
Sheriff Ricochet Rabbit is put on trial for damages. Although the more important problem, is that Harvey lost his crest to X in a poker game.

In one deleted scene, when Phil first comes into Harvey's office with his missing eye patch, the reaction causes the Bear and Peter Potamus to die and become stuffed carpet rugs.
A second deleted scene when X goes to the former F.E.A.R. HQ, where the husband would like X to give them their magazines because they failed to give a forward address, which includes Rifle Enthusiast (with Ranger Smith shooting at Yogi), Gun Fancy (with Yogi striking back with a cannon), Apocalypse Tomorrow (with Ranger Smith setting off a bomb inside Jellystone Park, killing the bears), and San Francisco's Gump's catalog (with Yogi's head mounted on the wall).
A third deleted scene features a montage of X's life becoming much better because of the crest, which includes moving into a neighborhood fortress (with a moving van called U-Schlep, a parody of U-Haul), having a big party, working out at a gym, a new wardrobe, trading in an old car for a new one, and a night on the town with a bunch of other supervillains.
The score was composed by Michael Kohler.
