Trivia

When making the second season, Cartoon Network wanted David Feiss to keep on making "I. M. Weasel" shorts. David Feiss didn't want to make any more, but agreed he would only if he could start using the Red Guy in the "I. M. Weasel" shorts. Since then, the Red Guy was a regular character in Weasel.

Alternate Versions

The episode "Buffalo Gals" was only aired once because of complaints of lesbianism in that episode. The plot involves Cow joining a gang of bikers named "Buffalo Gals" who wear buffalo hats and one of the members has a crush on Cow until Chicken saves Cow from the bikers. The episode was replaced by a rerun when the episode that went before this one aired again. See more »

¡Super Cow al rescate!
21 June 2000 | by AizykSee all my reviews

I love this cartoon. It's one of a number of delightful and ingenious cartoons I first discovered a couple years ago on the Cartoon Network. The humor is absolutely zany. There are a lot of wonderfully quirky things about the show, but I think one of my favorites is the incongruous endings. The episodes will often end immediately at the point of climax. The first few times this happened, I sat there for a second or two, confused and disturbed and caught by surprise, and then I laughed uncontrollably. The two episodes I remember most distinctly in which this happens are the one where Chicken has his neck stretched so he'll be tall enough to ride the rollercoaster, and the episode where Chicken eats too much "caffeine flakes(?)" cereal, and eventually ends up without any feathers and horrifically bloated after being shot full of Cow's milk to help him sleep.

I also recommend Dexter's Laboratory, and 2 Stupid Dogs/Secret Squirrel, both of which are cuter than Cow and Chicken (and all three of which I think are more humorous and clever than Johnny Bravo or the Powerpuff Girls, although the latter are in the same eye-pleasing visual style). The I.M. Weasel show is ok too, but I like the Cow and Chicken characters better. The "naked Red Guy" makes appearances on I.M. Weasel as well.

Over at the user reviews of 2 Stupid Dogs, many people were comparing it to Ren & Stimpy, but Cow and Chicken is much more similar to R&S in its visual style and gross-out-ness. And in my opinion it's a lot funnier. Cow and Chicken is probably the most irreverent of all the shows on the Cartoon Network, and I'd personally have reserves about letting my kids watch it if I had kids. And furthermore, I don't know if most can appreciate a lot of the satire and outright ridiculousness as much as older "kids" can.

'Shut yer pie hole' and see these shows!
