Attorney at Law
Volume 1 released on DVD
on 3rd November 2008
Straight from the Hanna-Barbera era
comes [Harvey] Birdman, like you’ve
never seen him before…
Revolver Entertainment is bringing TV’s first winged superhero-cum-
lawyer Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law to DVD this November.
See much loved cartoon characters, including Fred Flintstone, Shaggy
and Scooby, and Yogi Bear’s furry friend Boo Boo as you’ve never seen
them before, mixed up in drugs, the mafia, and eco-terrorism!
From those anarchic animators at Adult Swim comes Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, created by Micheal
Ouweleen and Erik Richer. Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law sees the return of Harvey, the winged superhero
"Birdman" from the 1960s animated science fiction series Birdman and the Galaxy Trio who is now trying to get by
as a third-rate lawyer in a fancy law firm.
When all the superhero work dried up, Harvey Birdman pursued another valued profession: the law. He’s traded
the Hall of Justice for the morally questionable law firm Sebben & Sebben. However, representing icons of
animation is not as easy as it seems when you’ve got to keep Shaggy and Scooby out of jail on drugs charges or
defend Speed Buggy after a high-speed chase. Throw in an empty personal life, a ball-busting boss, a psychotic
legal assistant, and a very persistent enemy from the old days and things are not always rosy.
“a bizarre, Monty Python-esqe romp through animation history”
The Village Voice

Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law features the voices of Gary Cole (Brady Bunch and Dodgeball: A True
Underdog Story) and Stephen Colbert (Saturday Night Live), and in true style many of the original voices from the
Hanna-Barbera era return in one off episodes, including Michael Bell (Scooby Doo and The Jetsons), and Jack
Angel who voiced Hawkman, The Flash and Samurai, in the iconic 70’s show Super Friends. Not only does the
show include some of the biggest voices from the 70’s, but its mix of retro animation cut with ‘real life’ footage
gives new edge to the adult cartoon genre.
“a crazy quilt of animated nostalgia and pointed, contemporary satire”
