* MediumBlending: The show will occasionally throw in a short live-action scene. DVD commentary on "Blackwatch Plaid" (which combines this with StockFootage ) reveals this was actually a convenient way to save money, as Turner has access to mascot costumes of practically every Hanna-Barberra character. Even forgotten characters like Birdman himself.

The series follows the adventures of Harvey Birdman (Gary Cole), now an attorney at a law firm run by his former boss (Phil Ken Sebben, voiced by Creator/StephenColbert) and other Hanna-Barbera characters (most notably Peter Potamus as well as Birdman's sidekick Birdboy, now called "Peanut", who was now an ultra-competent sociopath). Their clients, in their cases, are mainly their fellow Hanna-Barbera characters, in cases that tend to address longstanding fanon theories about them (like Race Bannon and Doctor Quest are lovers or The Scooby Gang are stoners). Most of Birdman's enemies from his 60s era show turn up as opposing lawyers or even judges, most notably LargeHam Mentok the Mind Taker (a judge) and Myron Reducto (also voiced by Colbert), who turns into a frienemy of Birdman before his untimely death.

The reformat ultimately backfired on the show, when Colbert, whose characters were now front and center and drove most of the show's plots, dropped the show to focus full-time on ''Series/TheColbertReport''. This meant [[PutOnABus getting rid of]] Reducto and Phil Ken Sebben, who, despite being [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan favorites]], were ultimately killed. In the end, the show was finally cancelled.
