    I have been watching the tape I made of all the Harvey Birdman episodes thus far, and am wanting to see other opinions on it as well. Also, what are everyone's favorite moments from this show. One of my favorite moments is the Showyu Weenie episode, where the sound expert is called to the stand. Mentok the Mindtaker is the judge, the expert Gayle Melody takes the stand. Mentok makes it a point that he has never met her, then says that he knows her middle name(just by his psychic powers). After she gasps at his insigt, he pumps his fists in the air screaming "YES! YES! MENTOK!"
    Just a silly little moment, but for some reason damn funny to me. Just one of those things you have to see. Much like the TAB product placement(describing it doesnt do it justice)

    Also, I was surprised to see Daily Show's Stephen Colbert as the voice of the Boss and Reducto.

    Birdman's boss (with an eye patch): I've got my eyes on you.
    Birdman: Eye.
    Boss: I didn't know you were Scottish.

    That line and the clapping, grinning bear are two moments that stick out in my memory because of their utter silliness.

    Mentok, by far, was the funniest single character I've seen on the show. Reducto is always great.

    Man I enjoy the whole Adult Swim lineup!
    Harvey is one of the highlights though, I loved the Apache Chief episode the best with the moment that sticks out the most is the Rainbow Coalition characters at the end of the show. The Jesse Jackson character with the rainbow over his crotch is just too funny!!!!!

    I'm sorry, but when your first episode is about Race Bannon and Dr. Quest fighting over custody of Jonny and Hajib (or whatever his name is) surrounded by a myriad of homosexual jokes, how can you not love the show?

    I love it when he first hires Peanut. After he tells him he got the job:
    Peanut: "Thanks! Can I get a gun?"
    Harvey: "SURE!!!"

    Just quick and perfect delivery.

    The Bannon one comes on tonight, its the only one I dont have on tape right now. Until tonight that is.

    Mr. Reducto is my all-time fave.

    And you all agree with me, don't you.

    "Seiko Moyimoto, I have to ask...Seiko, do you have the time? HAHHAHA! What?!!! CANT I BE JOCULAR??!!"
    Reducto then spins around and shoots on of the people in the court with the shrink gun.

    Reducto is great, but there is something about Mentok that I love.

    I am her brother, and I am prepared to hit you.

    Say you'll take the case.
    I'll take the case! But first, what just happened here?

    When Birdman wakes up with Quick Draw McGraw's head in his bed. Now, that's classic.
    But what episode isn't? I need to start taping all of these.
    Screw with more classic Hannah Barbera!

    Its the Dabba Don. This show is too damn good. I finally have all on tape now. Just wish I had a DVD burner so I could make DVDs of them so I could skip right to the best parts.
