Harvey Birdman Attorney At Law Press Pack
Once a famous ‘60s icon with superpowers, Harvey Birdman has
traded his cape & spandex for a 3 piece suit and the morally
questionable law firm of Sebben & Sebben.
As defender of toons in trouble he tries to keep Shaggy and Scooby out of jail for
possession, represents Fred Flintstone over alleged Mafia connections in a
Godfather parody and leads the trial of Yogi's sidekick Boo Boo who is suspected
Throw in an empty personal life, a ball-busting boss, a psychotic legal
assistant and a very persistent enemy from the old days and there's only
one manbird-cum-lawyer you'll ever want to watch!
(Voiced by Gary Cole)
Our main character and failed super hero, Harvey has traded in his volcano base for
a corner office in the law firm of Sebben & Sebben. Though he never received a
degree in law, he uses his superhero wit and expansive wingspan to file motions,
cross examine, and thoroughly manipulate the criminal justice system. Aside from
being a mediocre lawyer, Harvey struggles socially as well. Harvey tries his best for
his clients, but can occasionally overlook minor details, such as whether he is
prosecuting or not.

(Voiced By Frank Welker)
Avenger, Harvey's right hand man... er, eagle... has stuck by his side ever since the
better days of superhero stardom of the '60s. Avenger's best quality is his ability to
flawlessly dictate any memo from Harvey despite his notable handicap of having no
hands. Avenger always sits second chair at all of Harvey's trials, standing ready for
when Harvey calls for his electronic organizer. Although very quiet, Avenger is a
valuable asset to every victory in the courtroom!

When Harvey needed a clerk to clean up his office and to find that file that was big
and yellow and legal-looking, Peanut was swift to answer the want-ad. Harvey
instantly saw something, something good about this kid. Probably the fact that
Peanut looks strikingly similar to the character Birdboy of the original Galaxy Trio
series. Upon hiring and issuing of a gun, Peanut's true potential began to shine.
Responsible for filing, he usually spends his time not doing any work at all. He can
usually be seen reading about guns, patrolling the office with a gun, running bumper
cars in the office or selling tanning creme` to name a few. He speaks a multitude of
languages, has a knack for taking advantage of Harvey and is very interested in

Myron Reducto is Harvey's main arch nemesis... er, opposing lawyer. After the
superhero business fell through, so did the evil villain business, and Myron Reducto
followed Birdman's lead into being involved with the penal system. However,
Reducto hasn't quite given up all of the luxuries of his past villainy, as he can always
be seen with his trusty shrink gun at his side. Very small, very paranoid, and very
trigger happy, Reducto puts up a good fight against Harvey in the courtroom. His
favorite setting on his shrink gun? Fun-size.

She is Birdman's trusty legal sidekick and for some reason seems to know more
about law than Harvey. Judy is still in community college, while Birdgirl is a lawyer.
She tries her best to maintain her super secret identity and fails miserably at it. It
could be her inability to control speaking her internal monologues into a loudspeaker.
