Western Animation / The Drinky Crow Show

Go To

The Drinky Crow Show is about...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 April Fools' Day 2008 on [adult swim], and later "officially" the following fall. It became popular with fans for its far-out humor, but was cancelled after only one season due to the high animation costs. Though at the least it was given a Grand Finale.


Some tropes used in this series are:

  • Amusing Injuries/Bloody Hilarious: Not only do the main characters end up getting maimed on a regular basis, but they maintain a casual nature throughout the whole thing aside from the pain itself.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Gabby's new girlfriend is really only after him to commit murder and cannibalism before her wedding but is too chicken to perform them on an actual human being.
