Trivia: Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law
  • Actor Allusion: When the office workers mistake Phil's brother for Phil himself.
    Everyone: "He's back! Phil's back! Phil's back!"
    Random Employee: "Stephen's back!"
    Phil Ken Sebben: So, I got this tremendous opportunity! My own law firm! Might put my name in the title! Get a big S-shaped desk! Great for interviews! A spin-off, if you will!
    ...
    Harvey: So... you're leaving us?
    Phil Ken Sebben: I wouldn't say that. I'll just be extremely busy on the new show, err, firm.
    (Stephen Colbert himself can be seen in the elevator on the ride down, amongst Phil's luggage.)
  • Ascended Fanon: A major joke of the series. The majority of Birdman's cases are based around popular fan theories (Doctor Quest and Race Bannon are actually a gay couple, the Scoobie gang are stoners,Top Cat is really a pimp, etc.) and headscratchers (why can't you see Apache Chief or Grape Apes genitals, despite their respective sizes?, why is Secret Squirrel apparently naked under his trench coat?, etc.) related to old Hanna Barbera cartoons.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
  • Schedule Slip: One of the main downfalls of the series. While the first season aired on schedule, the remaining episodes aired all over the place, with one or two airing then a gap of nearly a year before the next batch aired. Potentially mocked in "Turner Classic Birdman":
    Robert Osbourne: You may have heard of the animated show Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law. In fact, if you're persistent, you can sometimes still catch it late at night on cable.
