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 (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.

* TinfoilHat: A variation, the police officers sent to apprehend Mentok are wearing helmets lined with aluminium, which Mentoks telepathic powers cant penetrate. He also cant affect Ernie Devlin, who has a metal plate in his skull from a stunt accident.

** Among fandom, this is applied to Stephen Colbert as far as the show's downfall. After retooling it into, effectively, "The Phil Ken Sebben Show", Colbert quit and the show frantically and ultimately failed, to fix things after putting all of their eggs into Colbert's basket.

** '''Shado, the Brain Thief''' has no indoor ''monologue''. Everything he thinks is broadcast like a reverberating PA system cranked UpToEleven. This results in ''everyone'' covering their ears in an attempt to quiet the noise (even though it's being spoken directly to their heads), and at one point, a custodian even takes a broom and starts poking an actual PA system, thinking that's actually the case.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: One scene in "Blackwatch Plaid" has Reducto try to prove to Harvey that his phone is bugged by saying terrorist buzzwords into it, before devolving into less serious things (the last one is actually accompanied by a [[TheSting Sting]]).

The series received little merchandise from Adult Swim, which included figures of Sebben and the giant bear. A game for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable and UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} was also created by Creator/{{Capcom}}, which used the ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' game engine; it suffered mightily, however, as the absence of Colbert and his voice double forced Capcom to cast a poor replacement voice, who was widely disliked.
