At Times Sick And Twisted, Cow And Chicken Is Still Great Fun
25 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

Similar on the lines to Ren and Stimpy when it comes to its gross out, often sick humour, Cow And Chicken, alongside Johnny Bravo, the Powerpuff Girls and Dexter's Lab represented the last of Cartoon Network/Hanna Barbera's talents. Clever, ingenious, quirky but also oh so ever twisted at the same time, this effort centering on a brother named Chicken and his younger sister named Cow, who live with a headless and bodiless mum and dad was just terrific.

The two couldn't be more different from each other: a teenage Chicken was often irritated with his life, as well as with Cow's antics and like with all of us, has a love/hate relationship with his sister. Child-like Cow is by and large, um large but comes across as naive at times but sweet and caring. Particularly when towards her brother, she is often overprotective of him.

The show has a strange fascination with butts- eating pork butts, Cow's large butt, the Red Devil's own large arse. Yes it can often come across as crude and nasty in places, but not to the extent to which it is anything like South Park, Beavis and Butthead or Family Guy, where the humour on those shows are very much adult- orientated. Cow and Chicken can be enjoyed by adults as well as kids but unlike say those cartoons, the characters do not swear or use profanities, in an attempt to generate audience laughs. The show was made up of say quick 10-15 minute sketches/situations involving both Cow and Chicken or either of them, as well as a little spin-off entitled: 'I am Weasel' featuring weasel and I.R Baboon which was okay but it was not as brilliant as the episodes featuring Cow and Chicken.

Cow and Chicken was very underrated and I would say under appreciated by many cartoon fans, especially those who are die-hard Hanna Barbera fans because they expected this cartoon to resemble something like the Flintstones, Hong Kong Fooey or those other classics. Yes the gross out humour can put certain people off, but if you can look beyond that and enjoy and laugh along with the silly antics and jokes, then you'll see for yourself what an interesting cartoon this really is.

Overall, this was and still is great fun to watch
