A scrawny, 11-year-old chicken named Chicken reluctantly watches out for his beefy "little" sister, a 7-year-old cow named Cow. The unconventional offspring of two human parents, the two young animals navigate their way through suburbia, encountering problems not only at school, but with the devilish schemes of the Red Guy, a crimson-colored antagonist of many guises whose singular intent is to make the siblings' lives miserable. If the character design and offbeat humor of "Cow and Chicken" cause viewers to recall "The Ren & Stimpy Show (1991)" there's a good reason: creator David Feiss worked on that irreverent animated series as well.
Did You Know?
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. See more
Well, basically that's it. Hope you losers enjoyed it.
In the episode "Comet!", there is a scene that is now edited in the reruns: The dad plays golf and keeps missing the ball while hollering "Two!" When he finally hits the ball (and it ends up at the planetarium), the dad hollers, "Ohhhhhhhhh, damn it! Two!" (though the closed captioning has him saying, "Ohhhhhhhhhh, divot!"). When CN censors found out about this, they simply deleted the word (so now the dad hollers, "Ohhhhhhhh [mute], Two!" Boomerang airings leave the original line intact. See more
