Trivia

This show was heavily promoted on The Cartoon Network for months and was set to premiere on 7 November 2004. That night, the network announced the premiere of the show. But instead of the pilot, the network aired the pilot for Perfect Hair Forever (2004). Following that was a "special presentation" hosted by Space Ghost of Space Ghost Coast to Coast (1994) in which a panel discussed "Perfect Hair Forever". The panel included Meatwad of Aqua Teen Hunger Force (2000), Sharko of Sealab 2021 (2000) and Earlie Cuyler of "Squidbillies". Viewers thought that it had all been an elaborate prank by The Cartoon Network and that "Squidbillies" did not really exist. But it was later reported that the script had gone through numerous rewrites throughout 2004 and the writers became unsure about the pilot. Just a few weeks before the premiere date, the pilot was scrapped. The "talk show" segment was hastily put together just days before the premiere date to fill out the time slot. The show was retooled and finally premiered in 2005. See more »

another fine addition to adult swim
29 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Squidbillies continues in the adult swim tradition of non traditional animation and manages to set itself apart from its predecessors with excellent voice acting and a unique visual presentation. At first glance the show could be described as a dadaist representation of deep southern stereotypes but its actually much more. The often bizarre episodes have a common thread of continuity involving a father being rejoined with his abandoned son and their life as a dysfunctional family unit. Younger viewers might not understand the sardonic commentary on difficult subjects such as racism, crime, alcoholism, spousal abuse, single parenting, and relationships. These same viewers will most certainly not comprehend the references to popular rock bands of yore. There is plenty of juvenile humor to keep them laughing. All in all its a refreshing and sometimes inspired take on the American experience that doesn't pull any punches and never fails to entertain.
