Did You Know?


The episode "Buffalo Gals" was banned after its first airing, due to sexual references and lesbian stereotypes. The episode involved a pack of biker girls who wore buffalo hats (hence the name) busting into Cow and Chicken's house and tearing up the place. The leader takes a liking to Cow and they kidnap her, which means Chicken must go to her rescue. See more »

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 »

Cow and Chicken is one of the funniest cartoons of all time. Cow and Chicken is surrealistic and rude all at the same time, very much in the spirit of Ren and Stimpy. Like Ren and Stimpy, it is a show for all ages, not just kids or adults. All ages that are adventurous enough to watch it that is. Cow and Chicken are your normal everyday suburban family, with a few exceptions. Cow is a 600 lb cow, Chicken is a 4 lb chicken, Mom and Dad are a super intelligent pair of legs, and a big fat red guy keeps torturing them. The voice work by Charlie Adler, who does the voices of Cow, Chicken, and The Red Guy is just supurb, probably his best work ever. The stories are outragous, ranging from C&C creating perpetual energy from a kid's chemistry set, to discovering a strange and surrealistic "laughing puddle", to becoming plastic surgeons for their grade school. The show was created by David Feiss as part of Hanna-Barberra's attempt to recreate their cartoon heydays of the 60's. Unfortunately, the show stopped production in 1999 and no new episodes are being planned right now. But with Cartoon Network expanding gloabally, the popularity of the show is growing, and with that growth comes the possibility that new episodes will be produced. If you are a fan of the cartoon Ren and Stimpy or the show Monty Python, you will probably love Cow and Chicken. The show "I Am Weasel" was also created by David Feiss and is a nearly identical show to Cow and Chicken.
