''The Drinky Crow Show'' is about...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a crow that likes to drink]]. And Uncle Gabby, his monkey-ish friend who likes to bed as many women as he can. The two go off on adventures on a ship with a captain and his daughter, with whom the monkey-ish thing likes to sleep. All the while they're looking for Drinky Crow's love of his life, a mermaid, and fighting French crocodiles. Occasionally, they get tied up in various schemes in an effort to either drink alcohol, bed women, or simply shirk from their French-killing military obligations (or any form of responsibility, really).

Based on the comic strip ''Maakies'' by Tony Millionare, this series debuted "unofficially" on AprilFoolsDay 2008 on Creator/AdultSwim, and later "officially" the following fall. It became popular with fans for its [[RefugeInAudacity far-out humor]], but was [[http://www.maakies.com/archive/m748.html cancelled]] after only one season due to the high animation costs. Though at the least it was given a GrandFinale.
