    Each character in this movie — down to the smallest one — is an individual rather than a type, prone to spontaneous changes of mood and sometimes amusing outbursts of pettiness or ill humor.

    I enjoyed watching this film and would recommend other to give it a try , (as I am) but this movie, although enjoyable to watch due to the better than average acting fails to add anything new to its storyline that is all too familiar to these types of movies.

    Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law is a great television series with well written episodes and a top notch voice cast. It is a really bizarre show that fans of both Adult Swim's content and Hanna Barbera cartoons will enjoy. The characters, most of whom are based off original HB characters, are terrific, with a lot of scope and personality put in to them in just 11 minute programmes, Harvey and Phil stand out in particular. However, it does suffer from the same problem as most Adult Swim shows, in that it sometimes gets too convoluted for its own good. There are episodes that go to uncomfortable places that are not even humorous, more so just looking for a reaction. The voice cast is all around tremendous, Gary Cole is top notch as Harvey, making his ridiculous dialogue always sound authentic, and Stephen Colbert knocks it out of the park in his various roles. There are also many great guest appearances throughout the forty episodes, a lot of whom reprise characters they voiced in the shows their from, such as Frank Welker as Fred Jones, Scott Innes as Shaggy & Scooby and Maurice LeMarche as Droopy, it was amazing to see how many people got behind this insanity. Ridiculously weird and enjoyable. Strange from the get go, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law certainly is not for everyone, but who it is for will love it. A former superhero takes up a career in law to protect well known cartoon characters. Best Episode: The Dabba Don / Worst Episode: Grodin

    This is a very funny show, the voices are great, I actually quite like the animation style and the humor is right up my alley. I'd call it masterpiece to be honest, the way it deals with both serious matters and just stupid, silly things, while making it all still fun and enjoyable. The show can organically move between topics like race, gender, sexuality, identity and a guy who likes to shrink things loving big butts. I'd call this one of my favorite animated shows, sure it might not be the best or it might be forgotten, but it does hold a place in my heart as the show that showed me - a little, small, stupid child at the time, that it was completely OK to take cartoons seriously and really look at situations from all perspectives. That might not be what other people took away from it, but somehow it truly did affect me. Also the humor is right up my alley.

    Most comments have already brought up the jest of what it is, so I'll keep it personal. My favourite cartoon shows of all time in no particular order: Family Guy, Simpsons, Futurama, South Park, Ren and Stimpy, Brak Show, Sealab 2021, Space Ghost CTC and of course this. Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. Although I must admit to having laughed more painfully (shortness of breath, etc) at Ren and Stimpy, Harvey Birdman keeps em coming much faster. It's insane in the best way possible. Ties with Sealab 2021 for most demented characters. I might be slightly biased because Birdman was my favourite HB cartoon, though. If you like any of the shows mentioned above, be sure to find this one.

    Collecting episodes one through 13, or roughly one and a half seasons, this first DVD of Birdman's antics are for the most part a delight to watch. It's one of those shows that you either get the humor of or not (such as Arrested Development, Family, or pretty much any other Adult swim cartoon). I myself find it hilarious. And the legal adventures of Harvey Birdman, his pet falcon, assistant Peanut, and archenemy Reducto as they interact with 'cartoon classics' as clients, hits my funny bone every time I watch it. Standout episodes in this DVD would have to be the insanely great "Trio's Company", the "Deadomutt" 2-parter, and the now classic "Very Personal Injury", but all the episodes are very good. I highly recommend both the DVD and to watch the show on Cartoon Network My Grade: A- DVD Extras: Commentary on 'Very Person injury', 'the Dabba Don', 'SPF', 'Trio's Company', and 2 on 'the Devlin made me do it'; Deleted scenes for 'Deadomutt', and 'Trio's company', Live action opening; fake Harvey birdman theatrical trailer; Crew montage; Stephen Colbert and Todd Barry as Harvey Birdman; pencil test comparison for 'shaggy gets busted'; and Tab can song
