‘Harvey Birdman’ Spinoff ‘Birdgirl’ With Paget Brewster Set at Adult Swim

“Birdgirl” is a six episode (half-hour) spinoff of “Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law” set to appear on Adult Swim on April 4th.

Paget Brewster lends her voice to the title character, Judy Ken Sebben (aka Birdgirl). Brewster previously voiced Birdgirl in the original series “Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law” (2001) as well as the recent special “Harvey Birdman, Attorney General,” which aired on Adult Swim in October 2020. (“Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law” aired for four seasons and 39 episodes along with the special “Harvey Birdman, Attorney General” which are all available for viewing on HBO Max..)

In the new series, after being named CEO of the world’s largest and most non-sensical corporation, Sebben & Sebben, Judy Ken Sebben (aka Birdgirl) has to find a way to maintain her work/superhero life balance. Through the halls of the company headquarters she assembles her Birdteam. By day, they try to drag the company into this century. By mid-afternoon, they usually end up having to break a lot of things to stop something bad that one of them may have helped cause.

. . . and here's a trailer.

I'm thinking there's an outside chance we get at least one episode on/after midnight on April 1 . . . but given that the first episode premieres that weekend, I wouldn't put money on it.

Just caught it on DVR. It’s . . . ambitious. You could call it a distaff version of HB:AAL, with Birdgirl and her own female Mentok as her bestie. I’m thinking the absurdity of the original series will remain intact, especially with Judy frequently going full Birdgirl . . . but like @Vermicious Knid pointed out, thirty minutes might be too long.

I like Dog with Bucket Hat.

I liked it, I like Judy/Birdgirl being the focus, and how her "team" were just her co-workers she roped into adventures, much like how she kept roping in Harvey (and others) in the original series. It really reminds me of early Archer in a way. A mix of ridiculous superhero stories and an office sitcom.

Unless this was a one time thing for the pilot, I don't know how a show like this can sustain 22 minute stories. What was great about Harvey Birdman was the rocket-fast pacing of the stories.

Yeah, he's an early favorite of mine.

Thought before I turn in: I have a concern that we won't be getting cameos from Hanna-Barbera characters like with HB:AAL. It was fun to see how deep the writers had to dig for characters. Back before Boomerang, when Cartoon Network would show really old-school stuff, they put up Devlin a few times. He wasn't anywhere near as fucked up as in the 2000's. I guess shattering an ass will do that to you.

ETA: Trying to remember the deeper cuts . . . Speed BuggyChan & The Amazing Chan Clan (the “Shouyu Weenie” episode), Mightor, Galaxy Trio, Auggie Doggie . . . I should stop now.

Hi-Riser from Wheelie & The Chopper Bunch might've been the deepest cut they did.

I forgot and missed the first episode, but I have the repeat cued up and put in a series recording.

Didn't they use Captain Caveman at one point? And I think I remember Dynomutt appearing in something. I once had a whole discussion with my brother about how awful the cartoons from the Banana Splits were. Now that would be a deep cut. Considering this was an unholy collaboration between Sid and Marty Krofft and HB, it should have been much better. Or crazier.

Even better, they used Cavey Jr. from Flintstone Kids.

And the Krofft's work on the Banana Splits would lead to them starting their own company and creating HR Pufnstuf, and the rest as they say is history.
