Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law is a show that shows on the Cartoon Network's late night block called Adult Swim. It uses classic Hanna-Barbera characters as well as more recent cartoon characters. The concept for the show is that Harvey Birdman is now a retired superhero and works at a law firm called Sebben & Sebben. His boss is a character from the early Harvey Birdman cartoon who also directed his adventures then named Phil Ken Sebben, a spin on his name in that old cartoon: Falcon 7.

Things You Always Knew But Were Afraid To Bring Up

Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law tackled issues we all suspected, but no one would tell us if we were right or not. A classic example of this is an episode called Shaggy Busted. This episode explored what we all really knew... Shaggy and Scooby smoked a lot of pot. While the episode never came out and directly said it, it was clearly implied through the episode.

Another classic example of this is when the show tackles Johnny Quest and if one of his male caretakers liked little boys. The show will imply everything you've always thought to the point where you wonder why they don't just say it.
