Trivia

The first Cow and Chicken short had rougher animation than the series that followed, and featured much darker themes. In the first cartoon, Chicken goes to Hell for smoking cigarettes, and is tortured by the devil while he's there. After this harsh episode, the content of the series was significantly toned down, the animation was brightened up, and the devil's name was changed to "The Red Guy". See more »

How could I ever have forgotten this show?
18 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

I adore animation, and today I was trying to refresh my memory on any good cartoons I loved during my childhood that I had forgotten to this point. Suddenly, it hit me...Cow and Chicken. How could I ever have forgotten it? Revisiting it after such a long time, I remember exactly why I loved it so much, it was one of my favourite shows on Cartoon Network along with Dexter's Laboratory and Powerpuff Girls. It was sick and gross I give you that, but in a somewhat good way, for it is very original and funny as well. The animation is good, the theme tune is memorable, the stories are interesting, the voice acting is excellent and it is funny. Mix some interesting and even lovable characters, and you have a truly great and I think underrated show. Cow is adorable, Chicken makes a lot of mistakes but we love him anyway for it and the Red Guy is often hilarious. All in all, this is a great show. 9/10 Bethany Cox
