Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law to Make DVD Debut April 12

Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law to Make DVD Debut April 12

TV�s first winged cartoon lawyer will make his DVD debut on Tuesday, April 12, when Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law: Volume One reaches stores. The hit Adult Swim series comes to DVD with the first 13 episodes, plus loads of extras.

List price for the two-disc Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law: Volume One set released, by Cartoon Network and Warner Home Video, is $29.98.

When all the superhero work dried up, Harvey Birdman pursued another valued profession: the law. He�s traded the Hall of Justice for Sebben & Sebben, and he�s carved out a niche handling all the firm�s cartoon litigation. Which is not as easy as it seems, when you�ve got to keep Shaggy and Scooby out of jail 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. No wonder he likes to drop by The Birdcage for a few drinks every now and again. But it could be worse; Harvey Birdman still gets to wear his cowl.

The first Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law DVD set, a two-disc volume, will be released in conjunction with Space Ghost Coast to Coast: Volume Three. The set has a running time of 154 minutes and will be loaded with features, including:

- The first 13 episodes, including �Bannon Custody Trial,� Shaggy Busted� and �The Dabba Don.�

- Deleted scenes from �Deadomutt� and �Trio�s Company�

- Casting outtakes from potential Harveys Stephen Colbert and Todd Barry

- Commentaries on five episodes, including commentary from Turner Broadcasting�s standards and practices and legal departments on �The Devlin Made Me Do It�

- Pencil test and final animation on �Shaggy Busted.

- Behind-the-scenes production materials;

- A live-action re-creation of the opening sequence; and much more.

A critical favorite since its debut, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law was dubbed �a bizarre, Monty Python-esqe romp through animation history,� by The Village Voice. The Detroit Free Press said it was �guilty of being sublimely ridiculous and sweetly deranged.� Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law is �deeply entertaining and decidedly surreal,� according to Salon.com, while TV Guide said the show is �a crazy quilt of animated nostalgia and pointed, contemporary satire.�
