  • The first six episodes here are definitely the best

      Harvey Birdman certainly is a breath of fresh air. A breath of fresh old air.

      Following in the footsteps of the immensely popular Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law renews the idea of taking old Hanna Barbera characters and putting them into a fresh new light.

      As you would guess, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law takes Hanna Barbera character Harvey Birdman

      (a third rate superhero cartoon) and turns him into a lawyer who just happens to work for Hanna Barbera cartoon characters.

      Many of the characters spoofed are, like Harvey himself, two-bit characters, barely remembered even by those who created them.

      Such as Inch High Private Eye, or Dingaling.

      However, many of these cartoons features some of the most famous characters ever to come out of ...

      • the Hanna Barbera studios: Scooby Doo and Shaggy, Jonny Quest, even Fred Flinstone.

        The first six episodes here are definitely the best.

        These do the best in capturing the spirit of the show: a whacky cartoon law drama that spoofs and brings out the inherent silliness of the beloved cartoons of yesterday.

        As time goes on, however, the show loses sight of this idea, and devolves

        into little more than excuse for wackiness for wackiness sakes: non sequiter after non sequiter, with mild meanderings into workplace comedy and oh yeah, we need to shove in a court case here somewhere.

        That said, the show is highly entertaining, and well worth a watch.

        Volume One is the best Harvey Birdman DVD out there (Volume 2 is not without merit, but not nearly as enjoyable as this set).
