"Jerry King", a.k.a. \//\SS/\GO (well, actually, my last name isn't spelled with an "o" but with a letter that looks like an "o" with a coma above it... OK, that's more than enough! ;) ) It was compiled of, firstly, my knowledge, and secondly, the materials found on the 'Net. You may distribute this FAQ freely, without charging for it in any way and without changing its contents in any way. You are welcome to add your ideas / information / updates / corrections / questions / links / more Red Guy names / more Red Guy appearances... etc., to it, _by contacting me_ first! Also, if you believe an information in here may have come from you (your site, Usenet post, etc. - I don't remember every source I used, especially since I read most of it before I was planning to write any FAQ), contact me, and I'll place your name here as a contributor. You can write me at: firstname.lastname@example.org If you're wondering: of course you will be named as a co-creator of the FAQ! Current contributors: JIM - the editor of "Red's Web News" at the Red Guy's site; LOP - webmaster of Red Guy's Site; Dan McMurray - webmaster of "Cow and Chicken, Yeah!" site; Kurt Willmon - webmaster of the official C&C/IMW site and editor of the C&C Newsletter; Alan Burton; Mike Cervantes. You may have noticed that I no longer call this FAQ a "completely unofficial" one. The reason is that Mr Feiss has read the FAQ and, as I'm told by Mr Kurt Willmon, he was impressed. :-) I think that means a green light for it! :-) The above is my PRIMARY e-mail address. Earlier I put here this address: email@example.com. The problems with it forced me, however, not to use this address, at least for now. (Please avoid asking me questions concerning C&C, though - I will most likely have no time to answer them!) Read the disclaimers section at the end before reading the whole FAQ! :-) And don't laugh while reading that section. It's a very serious matter! %-) I will not try to pose as an objective observer here. Nope, this FAQ is very subjective; in fact, it may contain some sections that you will not agree with, to say the least. But hopefully the whole rest will ease your pains. :) Anyway, let me know if you didn't like anything, and I will remove... uhm, I will consider removing it from the FAQ. :) You should read this FAQ in a Norton Commander-like viewer, full DOS screen. Try FAR for instance (www.rarsoft.com). If you use a Windows viewer, use fixed fonts and make sure these are the ones that do not corrupt DOS char table (otherwise the formatting will be lost, the ASCII Red Guy will look weird, to say the least, and the whole text will be rather unreadable). MS Word 97 will treat this file correctly if you import it into the editor using the defaults ( Courier, no formatting, etc.). Do *NOT* view the FAQ in MS' Notepad. If you really don't have anything else, use the freeware Notepad+ and switch to fixed fonts with no formatting, indending, etc. I recommend a DOS viewer and using a blue background and white fonts - the good old NC 4.0/5.0 way. :-) I have uploaded the FAQ with a little program to read it easily here: http://www.kki.net.pl/jaromirk/cchicken.zip http://members.tripod.com/~nfspd/cchicken.zip Download it and run START.EXE to read the FAQ. The HTML version of this FAQ is located at: http://members.tripod.com/~nfspd/cowandchicken/ The first thing you should do *NOW* is looking at the section "So can I do something about it?", and mailing Cartoon Network to keep making new episodes of "Cow and Chicken"!

I think a good answer may be the text from the show creator's official site! Just a mention here: I will be usually referring to "Cow and Chicken" as "C&C" in this FAQ, and The Red Guy will often be named just "Red". "I. M. Weasel" - both the title of the show and its main character - will be usually referred to as IMW, and I. R. Baboon as IRB. OK, now for the text from David Feiss's site: "C&C is a cartoon about a typical 11 year old and his typical seven year old little sister. They bicker and feud and get in messes-and stand up for each other-like all brothers and sisters. But there's a twist. Big brother is a foot-and-half tall, 4 pound chicken... Named Chicken. And "little" sister is a 6-foot, 400-pound cow... Named Cow. They live in a suburban house, with human parents. They play with human friends who think it's really cool that cow has an udder and chicken has a beak. Oh yes, and every now and then they get kidnapped by the devil. Only the bizarre imagination of veteran cartoonist David Feiss (Kissy Fur, Droopy, Fish Police) could have created such a wild new cartoon concept. And only the cartoon pioneers at Hanna-Barbera could have made it a reality. In 1994 Hanna-Barbera set out to recreate the golden age of cartoons with our "What a Cartoon!" program. We started making cartoons fast and furious - and short, the way Max Fleischer, Chuck Jones, Tex Avery, Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera made them fifty years ago. We found the best raw (and well done) cartoon talent in the business and gave them the freedom to make the cartoons of their dreams. And out of the "What a Cartoon!" program, two "startoons" were born. "Dexter's Laboratory" was the first to go to series. And "Cow and Chicken" quickly established itself as a hands down favourite." These are two official CN texts concerning C&C: "The Emmy Nominated Show Cow and Chicken from Hanna-Barbera and Cartoon Network's World Premiere Toons program will debut 26 episodes during the 1997-1998 season. Cow and Chicken, a viewer favourite from the World Premiere Toons project, consists of three cartoon shorts, two featuring the series' stars and one entitled I AM WEASEL, both created by veteran animator David Feiss (Tom and Jerry, Super Secret Secret Squirrel, Jetsons-The Movie). Cow and Chicken follows the wacky antics of a surreal pair of siblings, whose relationship is comically underscored by their identity-big brother Chicken and little sister Cow. I Am Weasel is about the exploits of the internationally famous genius, I. M. Weasel and his insanely jealous archrival I. R. Baboon. After a window of exclusivity on Cartoon Network, Cow and Chicken will also air on two other Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., entertainment networks-TBS Superstation and TNT. Thirty-eight year-old veteran animator David Feiss, creator of Cow and Chicken, jokes that he has constructed a cartoon which "captures the 'American Dream' - a nice house with a white picket fence, a loving father, a doting mother and two kids who just happen to be a 460-lb. cow and a chicken with an attitude." "In only its first season, "Cow and Chicken" has quickly developed into a ratings hit for Cartoon Network around the world. In the U.S., "Cow and Chicken" nearly doubled ratings among kids 6-11 in its time periods in October compared to the same month a year ago. In addition, it has consistently been rated in the top five programs among children in both the United Kingdom and the Netherlands since launching in January 1997 and July 1997 respectively. Since its launch in October on Cartoon Network Latin America, "Cow and Chicken" 's weekend telecast consistently wins the time periods against competing children's networks in the region's cable measured markets. "Cow and Chicken" developed out of Cartoon Network and Hanna-Barbera's World Premiere Toons, consists of three cartoon shorts, two featuring the series' quirky stars followed by another cartoon entitled "I Am Weasel," both created by veteran animator David Feiss ("Tom and Jerry," "Super Secret Secret Squirrel," "Jetsons: The Movie"). "Cow and Chicken" follows the outrageous antics of an absurd pair of siblings, whose relationship is comically underscored by their identity -- little sister cow (seven years old, 6ft., 400 lbs.) and big brother Chicken (11 years old, 18 inches, 4 lbs.). "I Am Weasel" is about the exploits of the internationally famous genius, I. M. Weasel, and his insanely jealous archrival, I. R. Baboon. "Only on Cartoon Network could a show with such an absurd, radically different premise be a hit across the globe," says Betty Cohen, president of Cartoon Network Worldwide. "We expect 'Cow and Chicken' to increase its momentum when it begins airing as a strip with "Dexter's Laboratory." Cartoon Network, currently seen in more than 45.8 million U.S. homes, is Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.'s 24-hour, basic cable service offering the best in animated entertainment and drawing from the world's largest cartoon library. Cartoon Network also showcases unique original ventures such as "Dexter's Laboratory," "Johnny Bravo," "Cow and Chicken," "Space Ghost Coast to Coast" and World Premiere Toons. Since its launch in 1992, Cartoon Network has remained one of basic cable's highest-rated networks. Hanna-Barbera Cartoons is one of the world's foremost creators of animation, having produced more than 6,000 animated titles, starring such non-classic characters as The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Huckleberry Hound, Scooby-Doo, Quick Draw McGraw and Jonny Quest. The current television series from the renowned animation house include: "The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest," "Dexter's Laboratory," "Cow and Chicken," "Cave Kids," "Johnny Bravo" and numerous shorts from the "What A Cartoon!" series on Cartoon Network. Founded in 1957 by the legendary Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera, Hanna-Barbera became part of the Warner Bros. family with the October 1996 acquisition of Turner Broadcasting by Time Warner. Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., a subsidiary of Time Warner Inc., is a major producer of news and entertainment product around the world and the leading provider of programming for the basic cable industry". This is what the show's creator, David Feiss himself says about C&C origin: "I was getting tired to read my little daughter every night a story, and suddenly I thought of a chicken and a cow. A chicken - because they're such little funny creatures. And I chose a cow because it looks so foolish with those udders under her body! I thought it was stupid to name them Fred or something like that. So the name Cow and Chicken was made up easily". Since David's daughter loved his story, he decided to write it down and try with Hanna Barbera who at the time were looking for new cartoon ideas. They chose C&C as one of the ideas for their Cartoon Network "World Premier Toons". The cartoon, titled "No Smoking", with its insanely absurd humour and loveable characters proved a huge success and got an Emmy Nomination and an Annie Award. David says that the relationship between Cow and Chicken is based on the relationship between his 13-year old son and his 9-year old daughter. 1.2........WHY IS THE SHOW SO POPULAR? Ask yourself why _you_ like it, and that will be the most important answer! Here is what David Feiss's page says: "Kids love its wild and wacky premise, and identify with the main characters' problems. And why not? They're the problems all brothers and sisters share around the world, even if they aren't cows or chickens". And here is what I additionally think: C&C are an instance of "pythonesque" fun. Such surrealistic humour, dwelling on the absurd, descending from Beckett's theatre of absurd, has always been the favourite entertainment of sophisticated, intelligent audience. In the humour pyramid - so to say :) - the surrealistic humour is the very top. It is the choice of elite! Its full understanding requires intelligence, wit and knowledge. The viewer can perceive it, analyse and interpret in any way he wants - the creators are fully aware of it, and that makes the matter so much funnier. Additionally, C&C is a perfect example of double meaning - on surface, it's a funny cartoon with lots of hilarious situations, but deeper, it winks at the adult viewer, showing him what a child will be unable to grasp. In other words, if you like C&C, you are most probably a smart kid or an intelligent adult! :) Watched C&C? Liked it? Feel proud, and welcome to the club! ;) 1.3........ISN'T THIS AN OVERINTERPRETATION, TO SAY THE LEAST? Oh, it almost certainly is. Well, OK - maybe I should change it a little. Or maybe... NOT!
1.4........WHY ARE YOU GIVING SERIOUS ANSWERS WHERE THERE SHOULDN'T BE ANY? Aw, c'mon! Every cartoon FAQ does it! :) 1.5........ISN'T C&C AN ADULT SHOW? Figure it out yourself! ;) Some people say so. When you think of the frequent political incorrectness of the show, the spoofs of some silly yet highly fashionable trends, the continuous obsession with buttocks ;), the constant gender-and-TV plays and confusion, cross-dressing, the word-play messages directed at adults, the instances of what censors might treat as violence and references to sex (only proving that violence and sex is what they have on their minds, and they see it everywhere) - you might think it is. To me, however, it's simply a show with double-level meaning, which is one of the most important reasons why it's so great. Kids will watch it and laugh for their reasons, and adults will watch it and laugh for _their_ reasons and at things you can only notice when you're an adult. If I had kids, I would gladly let them watch C&C, just as I would let them read Rene Goscinny's novels, which also have two layers of meaning (toutes proportions gardees ;) ). Section 2 - C&C: the makers 2.1........WHAT ARE THE SHOW CREDITS? Created by David Feiss Episodes written by David Feiss, Michael Ryan, Steve Marmel and Maxwell Atoms Art Direction by Deane Taylor and Scott Morse Main/End Title Theme by Guy Moon Music Score by Guy Moon Additional Music / IMW Main/End Title Theme by Bill Fulton Main Title Lyrics by David Feiss IMW Main Title Lyrics by Richard Pursel Produced by Vincent Davis Storyboard by Maxwell Atoms Dan McMurray (http://www.ccaa.edu/~mcmurd/cowchick/) compiled this large list of actors providing voice talents for C&C and IMW : - Charlie Adler: Red Guy, Cow, Chicken, I.

Some IMW episodes were directed by David and by Robert Steele. All episodes written by David and by Mike Ryan. The show is also dubbed, apparently. Currently I know of a Dutch dubbing and a Polish one (well, I should know that, I live here :-) ), but I don't really think that listing the actors who do the voice-overs in dubbed versions would be of any interest to anyone... or would it? Anyway, as much as I hate dubbing, I must admit that the one in here is done in quite a skilful way - the actors chosen sound and act almost exactly like the original ones (especially Red - he sounds like Charlie Adler's perfect clone :-) ), but the translation is sometimes poor. I don't know anything about the Dutch dubbing, but I heard Dutch viewers complain about its quality. I'm a natural born dubbing-hater, anyway, and if a translation has to be done, I always opt for subtitles. 2.2........WHO IS DAVID FEISS? David Feiss is a veteran cartoon maker who co-created, among others, "Dumb and Dumber", "Alf Tales", "Super Secret Secret Squirrel" from "Two Stupid Dogs", "Tom and Jerry Kids" and "The Jetsons" movie. C&C is his first own full cartoon show. You can contact David at: firstname.lastname@example.org And visit his web site: http://davidfeiss.webjump.com/ 2.3........YEAH, BUT _WHO_ IS HE? He's the genius whom the world owes Cow and Chicken - and The Red Guy! :-) 2.4........WHO IS CHARLIE ADLER? Not really a cartoon character, he is a voice artist who provides the voices of Cow, Chicken, and most importantly, the Red Guy! Earlier, he was the little bunny Buster on "Tiny Toon Adventures", and some characters on "Aaahh! Real Monsters!" and "Rocko's Modern Life". And that's just a few - he was in over 30 TV shows and 15 animated movies. Lately, he stars in a play (one-man play, actually) "There Used to be Fireflies" where he "is" 15 different persons. Charlie doesn't have an e-mail account, but you can write him snail mail. The address comes from David Feiss's site: Charlie Adler, c/o Arlene Thornton 12001 Ventura Place Studio City, CA 91604-2626 2.5........YEAH, BUT _WHO_ IS HE? He's another genius who made Cow, Chicken, and especially Red who they are today! :-) Section 3 - C&C: the show 3.1........WHAT ARE THE MAIN CHARACTERS ON THE SHOW? Obviously, Cow and Chicken. Also, Mom and Dad, Flem and Earl, Flem's Dad, Teacher, Boneless Chicken, Sow, Grandma(s) and Grandpa(s). And a very special and fascinating character, usually referred to as The Red Guy! 3.2........WHO IS CHICKEN? Chicken is one of the two main characters. He is a young cock - even though young in human terms. He is 11 years old and white all over. Currently, he wears his feathers as a feather-suit which he can easily take off. This may be because of bad memories concerning his real feathers, which he has after his encounter with the Molting Fairy and a certain angry mob. He seems to have teeth, even though he is unable to whistle. He weighs 50 kg (4 lbs.) and is 50 cm (1.5 ft) tall. Chicken is basically a normal growing boy, er, chicken who "has just arrived at the 'rebel without a clue' phase of his life". He is not sure about so many things yet, and tries to situate himself in the world. He enjoys acting tough and playing a smart guy, but his lack of experience and knowledge usually put him in all sorts of trouble. He likes using "advanced" words, such as "oblivious", or "inimitable", but he usually does it the Adrian Mole way. He acts as if he disliked his young sister (who in fact often gives him a reason to, unnerving him a lot), but deep in his heart, he actually loves her and cares for her, as he proves whenever _she_, for a change, gets in trouble. His interests are that of many young, growing male persons - superhero comic books, action novels, tough army life, toys and equipment, sport - and girls, even though he does not know why and what for. He _loves_ meat. Most things he eats are made of meat or at least meat flavoured - meat cotton candy, meat ice cream, meat flakes, meat drinks, and a lot of other interesting meals. The only change are the potatoes in the traditional family meal, "Pork Butts 'N' 'Taters", consisting of, well, cooked pig butts and potatoes. He likes milk, too. Oh, yes - did I mention he is Cow's big brother? :) 3.3........WHO IS COW? Cow is a young, 7-year-old, well - cow. She weights 209 kg (460 lbs.), and stands 2 metres tall. She is Chicken's younger sister and provides the family with milk - even though Chicken didn't at first like the idea of drinking it. Cow is a good and gentle creature with a very innocent spirit. She loves Chicken, she would always love to accompany him, and feels hurt when he avoids her company - to say the least! Cow likes most people she meets, with an exception of a shadowy character known best as "The Red Guy". Cow is often rather childish, and has the problems and interests of any growing, er, girl - fun, dollies, gossip, and boys. She hasn't been too successful with them, however. Both she and Chicken will live till a very old age, as we saw them already looking very old and wrinkled, in the Jetsons-like future (Red was there as well). It may be just my impression, but I think that between seasons I and III Cow gets a bit more mature. So does Chicken, but obviously more slowly. Cow loves her dolls - Manure the Bear, Crabs the Warthog, and especially Piles the Beaver. This frequently gets her in trouble. She also has a heavy crush on I. M. Weasel. Cow is quite powerful. She does not know the potential of her strength, though, which often has bad consequences for Chicken. The inside of Cow is much larger than one might expect. In fact, it's inhabitated. As a matter of fact, Red may currently be living in her fourth stomach. Cow isn't as silly as one might think. In fact, she has her own smartness which often helps her. Her intelligence improved greatly when she started wearing glasses, and her IQ reached a very high level at that time. However, she apparently lost the glasses or no longer needs them, and her temporarily high knowledge obviously disappeared. She holds a little secret, too, and we will take on it in the next answer... 3.4........WHO IS SUPERCOW? This is a question that bothers The Red Guy so much! He couldn't find it out, though, but we know that Supercow is Cow's secret identity. Her alter ego is a powerful, tough-faced cow equipped with super strength and the ability to fly. She wears a green cape and a violet costume which, as I suspect, may be the source of her extraordinary powers. A large, red-and-yellow "C" logo is on her costume's chest. She frequently uses her udder as a boxing glove and a full-automatic Milkygun. She _only_ speaks Spanish and can be very intimidating. She seems to be as popular as any superhero, and newspapers often write articles about her. Until now, she has only been overpowered by one being - the fearsome Grizzly Beaver, the terror of African savannah. She soon struck back, however, ultimately defeating the monstrous Beaver and turning him into Beaver Gas. Usually, Cow changes into Supercow when Chicken is in serious trouble and needs help - or when The Red Guy has wreaked so much havoc that he must be stopped immediately. The Red Guy is her greatest enemy and devotes his powers to tracking her down and getting rid of her. Cunning and dangerous as he is, he may eventually prove to be her Nemesis. FLASH: The source of the power is Cow's blanket! 3.5........WHO ARE MOM AND DAD? They are Cow and Chicken's parents, and their names are just Mom and Dad. They are _always_ shown from their belts down only - and it because they are in fact nothing more. They are pairs of intelligent, talking legs. This was revealed in the conclusion of the original "No Smoking" episode but they were never again shown this way. In all later episodes, every time that their missing upper halves would have to appear, they were conveniently covered with objects such as branches, kitchen utensils, other people, etc. The show makers obviously toy with the idea, though - Mom and Dad do everything with their toes, their shadows reveal the emptiness above their belts, and Cow has made the upper halves of their bodies as her school project. They do quite well the way they are, though. There is no certainty as to their current occupation (or anything else about them). They are very light-hearted and eager to laugh, and have a tendency to treat everything without too much seriousness - and that includes their children as well as their good selves. Their sanity is sometimes questioned by their offspring, but they should be forgiven - after all, they lost their heads and have no heart to anything! FLASH: They are shown in full again in IMW - turns out Red rubbed them out :) C&C's parents had quite an exciting life. They used to be pirates, they met at a lifestock toss, the worked in a cabbage field... In their youth, when Dad was still a girl, they both attended a military school, which made Mom a man. Curiously, both the bovine and the hen side of the family seems to come from Dad's side. Mrs Hen is his mom, and Longhorn Steer is his uncle. Of course, Mom and Dad can always be, for instance, a cousin-to-cousin marriage... ;-P This is what David Feiss said about Mom and Dad: "Cow and Chicken are not exactly 'The American Dream'. You know, nice house with a garden and a loving Dad and Mom, who both love their children. By coincidence, one of their children is a Cow with a weight of 209 kg, and the other one's an 11-year-old spoiled Chicken. The parents don't play an important role in the series, that's why we only see their legs". I myself would say that the "legs only" idea is a parody of a silly convention which appeared in many an American movie and cartoon some time ago, and was frequently used - the very idea of showing people who were either less important for the show, or were supposed to be seen "from a child's point of view" (or maybe from the childish point of view of the person who came up with the idea) only as legs, thus actually dehumanising them and leaving them as symbols rather than actual persons. ;) 3.6........WHO ARE FLEM AND EARL? They are Chicken's pals. His best friends, actually. They are neither too intelligent, nor too attractive. Nevertheless, Chicken enjoys their company, even though they have their ups and downs - as any growing boy or chicken. Flem has no last name but has a full-bodied father instead. They apparently live in one house, with Flem's Dad... 3.7........WHO IS SOW? Sow is Cow's cousin, a very troubled young... person... who does not treat law as a thing one should observe. She is a very rebellious pig with an obvious police record for juvenile crimes. She may be a member of a gang (which may have influenced Cow when she tried to join the Buffalo Gals motor gang). She is also very mischievous and seems full of hatred, particularly towards all good and peaceful (namely, towards Cow). 3.8........WHO IS BONELESS CHICKEN? Boneless is Cow and Chicken's older cousin. Guess what: he's a chicken and he's boneless. There is no explanation for his lack of bones, pun intended. Perhaps, not much unlike Chicken in his Admiral Floyd adventure, Boneless worked in a KFC restaurant and, when proposed a new job as a "Chicken Special", he decided to go for it, but quit having realised that the new job would not last too long - or, in other words, he escaped the plate but not before they extracted the bones from his body in the kitchen. Boneless is a bachelor and has a rather unsuccessful life. Nevertheless, he is experienced (for instance, he fought in Nam - not 'Nam/Vietnam, but a town named Nam) and his advice and wit often do people (and cows and chickens) good. 3.9........WHO IS TEACHER? Teacher is a woman whose job is same as her name - she teaches C&C's class. She is a rather nervous and noisy person, and her methods of teaching are a bit unorthodox. Nevertheless, the class seems to like her, perhaps with an exception of Chicken, who, due to his rebellious nature, may like her but on the outside, he does not want to show it. 3.10.......WHO ARE GRANDPA AND GRANDMA? Naturally, C&C have two grandmas and two grandpas. The first pair seems to be dead already, but they visit C&C as friendly ghosts. Grandpa is a Southern farmer, and Grandma is an elegant Southern hen. The second pair are both humans, and they are alive. They are very forgetful, though, which may often lead to some problems. The second pair are probably Mom's parents, which would mean that the chicken streak in the family comes from Dad. Section 4 - C&C: trivia 4.1........HOW WERE COW AND CHICKEN BORN? This is a great mystery. There is a strong possibility that Chicken was born in the family, and Cow was adopted - this is what Chicken claims. There seem to be many hens in C&C's family - grandma, cousin Boneless - but not a single cow. On the other hand, there is also a pig branch in the family - cousin Sow comes from it - so perhaps Cow is a fruit of an intermarriage, or a child of, for instance, Chicken's deceased uncle and aunt (if there are any). Cow tried to find out how she was born, but was unable to. All the answers, however, suggested that she was indeed adopted in a way, while Chicken was a "natural" child of his parents. FLASH: There is a bovine side to the family - in one of the newest episodes, Dad's brother, Longhorn Steer, appears! Which might bring some nasty ideas to the mind - would Cow be an illegitimate child of Steer? ;-P A new animal streak has appeared in the C&C family, courtesy of a character named Black Sheep. Also, a rather strange cousin named Slime has been introduced recently. There is a snail streak in the family, too. Section 5 - C&C: the episodes 5.1........HOW MANY EPISODES OF C&C ARE THERE? Currently, there are apparently four seasons, and these are the episodes: No Smoking - the original "World Premiere Toon" episode which the viewers liked so much that the whole series was created. Season I: Field Trip to Folsom Prison (originally titled "Folsom Prison Blues") Orthodontic Police Supermodel Cow Part Time Job Alive Who Is Supercow?

No Smoking The Bad News Plastic Surgeons Dirty Laundry Halloween With Dead Ghost Coast To Coast Who Is Supercow? 5.3........WHAT WAS THE ORIGINAL "NO SMOKING" EPISODE ABOUT? For some reason (a devil showing cruelty to an animal? :-) ), Cartoon Network stopped airing this episode. It is aired here, but in a dubbed version (and, unlike the show itself, a horribly sounding one). The cartoon started with Chicken watching TV and Cow trying to talk him into playing with her. He was fed up with her, so he told Mom and Dad about "Cow being stupid again", but it didn't quite work. He agreed to play with Cow when she threatened to show Mom an ashtray full of cigarettes which she found in Chicken's underwear drawer - and so they played Supercow. Meanwhile, deep in Hell the Devil - that is, Red - introduced himself and Cerberus. He announced his plan to kidnap and torment some innocent children - starting with C&C. He decided to kidnap Chicken, because "Cow looked kinda big". Cerberus reminded Red of the rule stating that kids must commit a sin before he can kidnap them. That was no problem for Red - he took a lift into C&C's garden, and offered Chicken a cigarette, which Chicken accepted, sealing his fate. Taken into Hell, he was tortured by Red, who used him as a cigar, washed his mouth, and decided to throw him into lava. Eventually, Chicken managed to scream for help, calling for Cow to "get Supercow". Which she did. Having become Supercow, she jumped down the hole leading to Red's domain, and, in accordnce with the place she found herself in, she beat living hell out of Red and took Chicken back home. Next day, during the breakfast, Chicken thanked her, but also complained about Cow's drinking all the milk and not leaving any for him. Cow refilled the milk cartoon with her own milk and offered it to Chicken. He was shocked and disgusted - and then Cow revealed that she's been doing it in secret for a long time. Chicken felt sick, while Mom and Dad laughed, happy at having such wonderful children. And then the camera slowly backed away, showing the classic scene - Mom and Dad in their full glory, revealing that they are just two pairs of legs. End! Section 6 - C&C: the official side 6.1........IS C&C OVER? Well, Cartoon Network is said to have stopped ordering new episodes. According to the show creator, David Feiss, it is over, then. BUT... CN _did_ order new episodes of I. M. Weasel. I actually used to treat IMW as a so-so cartoon, weaker than C&C - until its second season, and especially the moment that the magnificent Red showed up on the show. With his arrival, IMW very quickly developed into a great cartoon, sometimes even surpassing C&C (check out Weasel's kids - it's a real killer!!!). Since Red has become a frequent "visitor" of IMW, and Cow and Chicken have done guest appearance on the show as well, we may hopefully see them in the new episodes of "I Am Weasel". Remember also that if Cartoon Network receives enough e-mails, letters and telephones asking for new C&C episodes, they will probably order them! This is how the show originally came to life, after all! This is what David Feiss says about the matter: "Cow and Chicken and I Am Weasel are now finished, the series is over. It would be great if enough people wrote to the Cartoon Network asking for more, but I don't think it will happen". Perhaps CN did that because of certain armchair critics, who, on their web sites, advised the company to drop C&C and, if continuing the idea at all, to move fully to I. M. Weasel. That's basically what CN guys are doing right now... Soon there may be other people calling them to drop IMW as well, and then... you get the idea. 6.2........SO CAN I DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT? Yes, you can! In fact, it _depends_ on you! Do what David Feiss says on his site and send an e-mail asking for new C&C episodes to Cartoon Network! Or write them a snail mail! Actually, send them thirty e-mails from thirty accounts with thirty different names! ;-) The more input, the more chances for C&C to live longer! Mail CN at: ToonNet@aol.com Or write them at: Turner Broadcasting System Inc. Cartoon Network 1050 Techwood Drive Atlanta, GA 30318 Or send them a fax. But don't send them any fax in that fax... oh God, that was moronic. I apologise. ;-) Here's their fax #, anyway: +1 (404) 827 3384 Take a look here as well: http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Bungalow/4335/save.html 6.3........WHAT ARE THE COW AND CHICKEN OPENING THEME LYRICS? The lyrics were written by David Feiss and music is by Guy Moon: Chicken: Mama had a chicken! Cow: Mama had a cow. Both: Dad was proud, He didn't care how! Cow: Cow... Chicken: Chicken! Both: Cow and Chicken! ... The Red Guy: 6.4........ARE THERE ANY COW AND CHICKEN PUBLICATIONS OTHER THAN THE SHOW? Yes, there are. There is a "COW AND CHICKEN COLORING AND ACTIVITY BOOK" for young children, four C&C comic books by DC, and a Cartoon Network C&C promo book. As for fan fiction, there isn't much - two talk show scripts starring C&C are available, and they are very good. I myself have written a C&C episode script, but it needs changes and additions. Mike Cervantes (SlomotoML@aol.com) wrote an IMW fan episode. You can read the first comic book on the official David Feiss' site: http://davidfeiss.webjump.com/ The site also keeps track of any new C&C merchandise. An official C&C movie is said to be in plans as well. 6.5........A MOVIE? Yes - a movie. A full movie! "Cow and Chicken do America"? Naah... how tasteless! :) OK, there is talk of a C&C movie but not much is known for certain at the moment. Sorry! 6.6........WHAT ABOUT THOSE SHORT PROMOS? Cartoon Network has made a number of small C&C promos. I can recall four: two were combined of fragments of C&C episodes, and one was made as a stand-alone original. The first one consisted of Dad calling C&C in a stern voice, and C&C repeatedly making the "ping" sound which can be heard when they are taken to the military school. The second and third one were basically short musical clips, with C&C "playing" (Chicken with his hammer, Cow with her nose), and singing ("C-c-c-chicken! / COW!"). The original one showed C&C performing at a concert: Chicken played a guitar wildly, yelling "Cow 'n' Chicken YEAH! Cow 'n' Chicken YEAH! Cow 'n' Chicken YEAH!" and then shouting at Cow to take it over - "COW!". She was quiet and timid all the time, and only responded with a short "Ooo!". There are, of course, some "normal" promos simply informing of the time of the show, etc. The original promo, which introduced the whole series, contained a "Cow and Chicken" line sang to the tune of "Hallelujah". And a long time before that, there was a short promo for the World Premiere Toons series - notably, for the week when "No Smoking" was to be shown. I don't really remember much from that promo, but there was something along the lines of: "What do you do when your little sister is a cow?". And there was a Red Guy promo, too. First it had some contemporary hit song in the background - whatever, I don't know it, I can't name it - and then the music was gone. Perhaps for copyright reasons. Anyway, apart from "No Smoking", the promo was the only time that Red openly said he was the devil (well, it was a quote from the original episode, actually). JIM provided this info about two promos I forgot (!) and one I haven't seen: - Cow as a fortune teller (Chicken: "It's not gonna workin', Cow!", Cow: "C'mon, big brother, concentrate!" - and Cartoon Network logo pops from the flashing magic ball). - C&C dancing in front of TV set (Chicken presents his parents and sis, then he says "Now let's rock!" and he and Cow start to dance. When Cartoon Network logo appears on screen, Boneless Chicken lands on it. Chicken says: "My cousin Boneless"). - Flem and Earl (short clips from episodes where F&E co-starred, song in the background with easy lyrics: repeating "Flem and Earl, Flem and Earl"). There are also the "Red's Beauty Tip" and "Rear Admiral Floyd's Pork Butts from Wazco" spots. 6.7........ARE THERE ANY C&C COLLECTIBLES, ETC.? Taco Bell restaurants in the US of A :) sold six kinds of C&C toys: Cow TV Animator, Chicken TV Animator, Cow on a Pop-A-Wheelie Tricycle, Huggable Cow & Chicken, Sparkling Super Cow, and Cereal Spinner. Cartoon Network has produced C&C souvenirs (for instance, C&C copybooks), and you could win them in some competitions. Other things I know of are mainly PC multimedia: two C&C screen savers (one is official, from Cartoon Network), two official games ("Here's Milk in Your Eye", in which you play Cow and shoot milk at Chicken, and "Bombs Away!" with Red throwing bombs at C&C!), and one unofficial Shockwave "memory" game (similar to one of the games in Nokia 51xx/61xx cell phones). There are two C&C desktop themes for Windoze as well. Which of those should you get? All ones, of course! It's about 9 megs of download in total, as far as I can remember - and everything free (except for the phone bill)! Quake ][ and HalfLife fan(atic)s can download a C&C inspired scenario here: http://www.captured.com/cow&chicken/ I personally don't like FPP shoot'em ups, but the screenshots of those mods look quite funny, so if you like "quaking", check it out. Cartoon Network sites inform about a new C&C promotion, connected with the release of a number of new episodes! The promotion is named "Smelly Telly", and you can receive a number of special cards which, after you scrape the protective cover from them, will emit a particular odour staying in accordance with the contents of the episode being aired! There are a few cards, and each should be used with different specific episode of C&C (reminds me of Smell-O-Vision from the 1950s... :) ). Cartoon Network has a new C&C Shockwave game: http://www.cartoonnetwork.com You can find the C&C Halloween pumpkin stencils here, on David Feiss' site: http://davidfeiss.webjump.com/merchandise.html David's site also has all the songs in the show, and you can listen to them. You can buy C&C production cels here: http://www.margaretsmithgallery.com/hanna.html Warner Bros stores sell more cels, as well as other C&C collectibles (a C&C clock, a key chain, a t-shirt and a picture frame). You can find their addresses here: http://davidfeiss.webjump.com/merchandise.html I myself have created a C&C car for "The Need For Speed III" (it's the Mom and Dad Mobile with all the main characters visible and The Red Guy's head added), but it's not been released yet. If it is, it will be placed at: http://members.tripod.com/~nfspd/ Section 7 - IMW: the introduction 7.1........WHAT IS "I. M. WEASEL"? The "I. M. Weasel" series is another creation of David Feiss. Basically, it's a cartoon that accompanies C&C, and which is soon to become independent. It's produced by "Wild Brain, Inc.", and here's what the show makers themselves have to say about it: "'I Am Weasel' features the exploits of the internationally famous genius, I. M. Weasel, and has insanely jealous archrival I. R. Baboon. Weasel is loved by women, he enjoys a transcontinental high-life complete with sports cars and fabulous mansions. Bulbous-butted and hopelessly hapless, Baboon is unyielding in his attempts to unseat his nemesis from the throne of pedigree and breeding". 7.2........HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO C&C? During its first season, IMW was OK, but nothing special. There were quite a few good episodes, but otherwise the show was rather bland when compared with Cow and Chicken. However, with the coming of its second season, IMW changed - for better! It went rather in C&C's direction, and became more surrealistic and thus much funnier. Season three is actually so good that sometimes it even surpasses C&C. Also, I. M. Weasel was no longer successful every time: there's nothing like seeing a celebrity lose! >;-) Sometimes Baboon actually took the grand prizes! C&C's and IMW's worlds started blending: as it turned out, Cow was in love with Weasel, she did guest appearances as Supercow, she watched IMW on TV... And best of all, the magnificent Red Guy started showing up on IMW! He became a frequent visitor there, not necessarily wreaking havoc - sometimes he does very good deeds there. For example, he baby-sits IMW and IRB, which the latter likes very much (though IMW isn't too happy with their new babysitter and... uhm... _her_ ways of telling stories). IMW is to be made into its own series now. There is no telling what the "final product" will look like: hopefully, "I. M. Weasel - The Show" will be more like seasons II and III of the older IMW, and less like the weaker season I. Robin Steele is said to be the director of the new show. He made "Garfield and Friends", too. If the new show combines the madness and fun of C&C, IMW, _and_ "Garfield" (not to mention Orson :) ), it may turn out great! (Though _nothing_ will replace C&C...) Section 8 - IMW: the show 8.1........WHO IS I. M. WEASEL? I. M. Weasel is a genius among weasels. A very talented, intelligent, and at the same time gentle character, he's been very successful in almost every field he's ever taken on. He is a very popular figure, and crowds love him. He is mostly into scientific research, but has numerous other talents as well. His motto is: "If there is a problem to solve, I will solve it - for I AM WEASEL!". His fur can be taken off easily, and hides a sinewy, somewhat hairy torso with sailor's tattoos - something rather disgusting, and strangely out of place for an intellectual. IMW's brain is much bigger than the rest of his body. IMW doesn't really look much like a weasel. The Red Guy took him for a squirrel more than once. He used to be accompanied by a blonde girl named Loulabelle, who, like IMW, has quite a number of occupations but whose intelligence equals more or less that of a box of cookies. Censors pulled her character down after some time, though (Yes, censors, and yes, pulled down - read further to find out more). I don't need to dwell on the "I. M." and "I. R." (and "I. B.", for Red :) ) jokes, do I? Yagidditall, right? 8.2........WHAT ROLES DID HE APPEAR IN? An astronaut. A sailor. A diver. A lawyer. A genealogy expert. An actor. An odour specialist. A Ping-Pong player. A judge. A biologist. A virus researcher. A doctor. A businessman. A minister. An architect. An engineer. An ambassador. A politician. A retired toon. :) A king. A baboon. :) A child-raising specialist. A DNA researcher. A TV star. An archaeologist. A musician. A senior citizen. :) A fairy. A traveller. A journalist. A fireman. A clerk. A hole specialist. A prisoner. :) A ship inspector. A driver school examiner. A time traveller. A vampire count. A best man at IRB's wedding. A bride. A pilot. A pet cat named Spot. :) A psychiatrist's (Red's :) patient. A scientist - apparently, that is his primary occupation. A private eye An olympics player A hairstylist A gladiator A fighter for freedom of future US A ghost 8.3........WHO IS I. R. BABOON? I. R. Baboon is IMW's archrival. He is a character of low intelligence and almost no manners. Amazingly, he is often amiable - and _always_ funny. He seems to suffer from a complex he doesn't even know about: a complex of his red "glossy" butt - a trademark of his. He is often unsuccessful and unlucky, and almost always blames IMW for that. I. R. was apparently introduced as a villain and IMW's enemy. However, he was probably liked by the audience too much, and he was gradually promoted with new episodes coming. He ultimately became IMW's sidekick rather than opponent, and in the third season he and Weasel often work together. The show's villain remained - but his persona changed: C&C's Red Guy is the IMW anti-hero now. As for I. R., he even became more intelligent, at least formally: he got a PhD. His grammar remained as horrible as before, though, and he keeps referring to IMW as "Stoopid Weezle". I. R.'s brain is about the size of his eye. I. R.'s hobby is sniffing his index finger. According to Weasel's research, it may mean that he misses his mother. She is alive, by the way, living with her husband, Mr Baboon, and their daughter, very similar to Cow in size, and to I. R. in behaviour. 8.4........WHAT ROLES DID _HE_ APPEAR IN? An astronaut. A prisoner. A diver. A seaman (sea-ape?). A drifter. An amateur hole-specialist. An actor. A pig farmer. A Ping-Pong player. A virus researcher. A plant salesman. An engineer. A king. A weasel. :) A guard. An amateur lawyer. An architect. A mother. A biologist. A time traveller. A deep-sea farmer. An archaeologist. An amateur musician. A retired toon. :) A fairy. A fisherman. A salesman. A clerk. A TV star. A wild baboon. :) A ship captain. An amateur poet. A vampire. A groom. A pilot. A pet dog named FatHead. :) A psychiatrist's (Red's :) patient. A scientist (yes, you've read it right!) A private eye An olympics player A "toe man" A hairstylist A gladiator A rather unfortunate fighter for freedom of future US A ghost Section 9 - IMW: trivia 9.1........WHAT ARE THE LYRICS OF WEASEL'S THEME SONG? The lyrics were written by Richard Pursel, and music is by Bill Fulton: You don't need pants for the victory dance, 'Cause baboon's better than weasel, I. R. Baboon's big star of cartoon: 'I AM WEASEL!!!' I. R. Baboon reigns king in his mind, He's just as good as the weasely kind, But round every corner he's likely to find: 'I AM WEASEL!' 'I AM WEASEL!' 'I AM WEASEL!!!' 9.2........WHAT'S WITH THIS "POP! GOES THE WEASEL"? "Pop! goes the Weasel" is a nursery rhyme. The IMW theme is based on its melody, and I. M. Weasel can be frequently heard humming this short song (which usually infuriates I. R. Baboon). The rhyme goes: All around the cobbler's bench, The monkey chased the weasel. The monkey thought 'twas all in fun, Pop! goes the weasel. A penny for a spool of thread, A penny for a needle. That's the way the money goes, Pop! goes the weasel. Rufus has the whooping cough, And Sally has the measles, And that's the way the doctor goes, Pop! goes the weasel. A penny for a spool of thread, A penny for a needle. That's the way the money goes, Pop! goes the weasel. 9.3........GOSH! RATHER CRUEL, ISN'T IT? Not really. Actually, no real weasel is harmed in the song. The weasel which goes "pop" is an old tool used by hatters to apply fabric to the top of hats. As for the "pop" itself, it isn't a sound made by poor exploding weasel; it's a (rather dated) slang word meaning giving something to the pawnbroker (and here the "something" is said weasel :) ). Section 10 - IMW: the episodes 10.1.......WHAT ARE THE TITLES OF IMW EPISODES? WHAT ARE THE TITLES OF IMW EPISODES? Currently, there are three seasons, and the episodes are aired together with Cow and Chicken. Only time will tell what the new independent series will look like. Here goes the list, anyway: First season: I. R. on Sun Deep Sea Tour I. R. Gentlemans I Are Big Star Power of Odor Ping-Pong at Sea Disease Fiesta I. R.

Gentlemans I. R. on Sun Ping-Pong at Sea I Are Big Star Power of Odor Disease Fiesta I. R. Plant Life IMW - sseason: (two "s's", two dots...) I. R. Pixie Fairie I.

Pixie Fairie I Am Vampire Honey, I. R. Home The Unsinkable I. R. I Stand Corrected Section 11 - C&C: the less official side 11.1.......WHAT'S WITH THIS MISSING C&C EPISODE? (WITH NASTY COMMENTS - YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP THIS SECTION) "Buffalo Gals" was an episode pulled down after it was aired for the first time. It told a story of a girl motor gang, which Cow desperately wanted to join. Apparently, the contents proved controversial to some narrow "minds", and one of the curses of modern times, the Political Correctness-censorship communion acted, sadly resulting in the episode's being blocked from airing again, and replacing it with the "Orthodontic Police" episode. Those who decided to ban the episode promoted it to a 'cultoon' ;) that way). So much the better! (BTW, the character of Loulabelle from "I. M. Weasel" was removed by censors as well. I suppose it was because she was the standard dumb blonde from jokes, and she was too real - the dumb blondes apparently felt insulted and pressed their little old *influential* boys at Turner... oh, I'd better stop before saying something they wouldn't like... or have I said it already?) The whole "case" may have influenced certain later mindless attacks on C&C. One of those is so bizarre it is even worth mentioning here: a woman, whose name will probably not even be remembered by her family in a year from now, tried to have her five minutes by accusing Cartoon Network of promoting sexism and showing women in bad light through C&C. Apparently, the attacker took Cow to be a portrayal of a woman, which might make some malicious people think it was perhaps because of some qualities, emotional and physical, that they both shared. Then again, it would obviously be unfair. To Cow. 11.2.......WHAT WAS IT ABOUT? I watched it only once, and a long time ago, but here goes: Buffalo Gals were a group of tough, er, girls, who formed a bike gang. Large buffalo hats were their symbol, and they did what any motor gang does - they wreaked havoc. And they did the same in C&C's house. They ate the carpet, among other things. They liked Cow, however (they being buffaloes, her being a cow...), and they asked her to join them. She did just that, and Chicken set out to bring her back. Buffaloes beat him up, and again he was only saved by Cow. 11.3.......SO WHY DID THEY BAN IT? Who knows that for sure? Some say it was primarily because lesbians felt insulted. Yeah. The BG gang is basically a group of tough lesbians, and one of them falls in love with Cow. Then there is an instance of cruelty to animals in the tradition of "Frog Baseball"... ;) And the humour of this episode went to the extreme in a few moments, which the thick-skulls apparently disliked (sorry, I really dislike cartoon censorship...). 11.4.......I MISSED THE BUFFALO GALS! HOW CAN I WATCH IT NOW? Find someone who taped it... or persuade CN not to pay attention to foolish attacks on the show. The first solution seems more realistic. Section 12 - The Red Guy! 12.1.......WHO IS THE RED GUY? The Red Guy is the most fascinating, enigmatic and charismatic character on the show. In fact, he is the most fascinating cartoon character ever! He is basically a devil. Or, in fact, _The_ Devil! That was his original appearance in the first episode. Being the source of all evil, he decided to do what everyone else would do for fun on a boring, hot day in Hell - namely, torment innocent kids. He picked on Cow and Chicken - or, actually, on Chicken, whom he kidnapped using a clever "thou hast sinned, now thou art mine!" trick. He was defeated by Supercow, though, and apparently he swore revenge. From then on, he has been appearing on Earth, always pursuing Cow and Chicken and usually trying to lure them into trouble. It is not always the case, however, and sometimes Red is a nice, decent guy - he may even be helpful to C&C! There were cases where he actually saved them from certain death. He uses dozens of different identities and aliases. He can be recognised very easily, though, even when he covers his devilish horns with wigs or TV masks. Amazingly, nobody has recognised him yet. Only I. M. Weasel came close, suspecting it, but never really discovering the truth. But then, who knows what the truth actually is? After all, Red's power are so amazing that he may in fact influence everyone's mind, forcing them to forget him. Red can travel in time and space, create anything out of nothing, control others... and much more. A devil, after all, is a being of a thousand faces. His name is Legion, for he is many. Red's appearance is that of a red devil. He is rather fat and of average height. His face is very expressive, and his eyes usually reflect his mood. His eyebrows only appear when he has a need for them. His voice is as amazing and distinctive as the rest of him. He often introduces himself saying: "Hellllloooooo!... It's me!". Sometimes he goes naked but very often he is clothed fully - with an exception of his bottom part. His great red butt is always bare - and it seems to be his pride and joy. It is also the source of nearly each one of his aliases - they all play on the idea of a bare bottom, sometimes using languages other than English for reference. His butt has more uses than just mooning - Red can walk using his butt instead of his legs. He is very skilful at it, too. He also likes to roll around on the ground, often moving in this way. FLASH from JIM: In the episode "Black Sheep of the Family" Red actually puts on a pair of trousers; earlier, in "Intelligent Life?", he also gets to wear pants, courtesy of the United Nations. Also, in "Major Wedgie", we learn that he dropped the habit of wearing pants while in the army, when he accidentally learned that pants made him feel grumpy and imprisoned. Red apparently has a brother, looking and sounding very similar to him, but with a different colour - beige rather than red. There are suggestions that this brother is in fact painted Red, but I doubt it: although Red proved numerous times that he can either multiply, or be in more than one place at the same time, he never tried to disguise himself using tricks such as colour change, even when the situation really required such measures. There is no certainty as to whether he has any other relatives. According to his own words, he has at least a grandmother, whom, for some reason, he dislikes very much - but whose picture he seems to be keeping on his wall (however, it may be his mother - now imagine _who_ could be the devil's mom). Red is also said to have three kids. Back in his original place, Hell, he used to have a faithful dog, the mythical Cerberus. Since he has no pet on Earth, he sometimes tries to get one, for instance, by catching pigeons in parks, or by keeping wooden dogs. Red very often appears as a mischievously-spirited commentator of the show, a commentator who knows and can do much more than anyone else. He frequently changes the strength of his voice, which results in his talking like THAT! His tail is apparently telescopic and flexible, and he can manoeuvre it with great skill. Red, as mentioned, possesses obviously supernatural powers. Sometimes, however, for strange reasons, they seem to leave him. Yet he is probably the only creature able to break the barrier of time and space without anything but his own will. He may even be able to exist in different realities or different locations in one reality at the same time. :) Supercow is Red's deadliest enemy. He also hates milk and is afraid of feathers and eggs. Thus, C&C are not just a symbol, but an actual embodiment of his worst fears; can you blame him for pursuing them so relentlessly? He is also my favourite! Currently "my best" :) appearances of Red are the original Devil from "No Smoking" and the factory owner from "Factory Follies"! ;) Red belongs to "The Full Moon Club" and "Pantyhose of the Month" club. His favourite TV channel is The Moon Channel (well, do you get it?). Recently, he explained to IMW and IRB that when he was nine, he had no idea one should wear pants when going to school. A picture of someone who, as Red claimed, was his dad, could also be seen. We had a chance to hear Red's mother, too! Unless, of course, he is a red version of Norman Bates among everything else... For a limited time Red lived with C&C in their house, where he became the favourite kid of Mom and Dad. He likes himself. He is possibly the only... er... *man* ever to actually marry himself. (He gave himself a solid gold wedding ring with a big diamond) As you may remember, I suspect that the source of Supercow's powers is her costume. Red already laid his hands on it once, but unfortunately, he didn't try it on. If he did, and if my guesses were correct, imagine what we would get! A glorious, Spanish-speaking SuperRed flying above the city and equipped with even more powers than he already has! (And by the way, don't you find it suspicious that Supercow _only_ beats the guy who wants to pick on Chicken? Wouldn't it be, by any chance, because _she_ wants to pick on Chicken herself, and she's just eliminating the competition? ;) ). 12.2.......WHAT ARE THE RED GUY'S NAMES? Originally, Red introduces himself as the Devil. Which he is, there is no doubt to that. Later on, however, while pursuing Cow and Chicken, he uses a number of other identities and aliases. Among these there are: Rear Admiral Floyd Mr Buttstein (?) Mary Lou Heiney Dr Pantsless Irving J. Slacksoff Lance Sackless Walter Jeansbegone Ivan Panced Cleopantless, Queen of DeNile Geraldo Rearviewa Baron von Keinlederhosen (Neinlederhosen?) Captain Buttz Pirate Mr Devlin Uncle Breezybum Mrs Beaver Mrs Baredrear (? - alternate spelling may be "Barederriere") Dr Clearbottom Dr Seymore Butts Dr Nopance Dr Lax Slax Dr High Knee Principal Red Officer Pantsoffski, Orthodontic Policeman (I wonder if he's Russian or Polish? :) "-Ski" cops in US are usually Pl, so hey, maybe I know him ;-) ) Officer Funny Heiney Larry Lackapants, The King and Queen of Cheese Rex Fanny Professor Hiney Bottom Red Heiney Dr C. D. Heiney Red Heiney Al Heiney Larry the Molting Fairy The Copy Fairy Little Red Fairy (in slang, the word "fairy" has a homosexual connotation...) Dead Ghost Ben Panced Colonel Butt Seriously Emperor Gluteous Maximus (His Majesty Big Butt...) Sir Pantsareoff (Pantseroff?) I. B. Red Guy :) Mr Fly Man Dr Sigmund Fraud Red Kid Allen the "Alien" Dr Slacks Off Mary Lou Hiney Ivan Panced Ben Panced Mike Hiney Talula Bottoms The Bareskin Rug Botthomshow? Officer O'Fannyhee Hives the butler Buttes Galore Red the Giant Professor van... ??? [I only heard this episode dubbed, so I don't know his actual name. It's a word play based on his butt and van Helsing's name, I suppose] Often, mainly while talking to himself, he just uses the name "The Red Guy", or "Red", for short. He also often uses the aliases Ivan Panced, Ben Panced and Lance Sackless. 12.3.......WHY DOESN'T HE CALL HIMSELF "THE DEVIL" ANYMORE? Who knows for sure? It may be because he hides his real identity. Or maybe because he wants to cease his devilishness. Or perhaps in order to avoid accusations of promoting Satanism. When you think of people forcing a ban on "Buffalo Gals", it's a plausible explanation. And now Alan Burton confirmed my speculations: "The Red Guy doesn't call himself the Devil anymore, indeed, because the network didn't want to promote Satanism". 12.4.......WHAT ROLES DID THE RED GUY APPEAR IN? He is so talented. He can be just anyone, and be good at it! This is probably a partial list only, but here goes: The Devil, source of all evilness. A prison warden - I suspect it's his primary job. ;) A nurse. A TV announcer. A plastic pipe salesman. A cartoon character. :) An emperor. A queen. An orthodontic policeman. A lawyer. An attorney. A prosecutor. A photographer. A bar owner. An admiral. A sergeant. A businessman. A factory owner (CEO, "High Knee Industries"). A clerk. A doctor - that seems to be his favourite occupation. A prisoner. A professor. A musician. An inventor. A hunter. A drifter. A car merchant. An unemployed woman. A generally know-it-all commentator. A plastic surgeon. A girl scout. A caring mother. A woman of questionable behaviour. A teacher. A manner teacher. A boat owner. A storyteller. A fairy. A cafeteria owner. A house wrecker. A musician. A pet shop owner. A video game salon owner. A crippled veteran. A gangster. A first mate. A babysitter. A shop owner. A supermarket owner. A barber. A tribe chief. A tour guide. An adventurer. A cheese maker. A car dealer. A salesman. A pirate. A talk show host. A TV celebrity. A president. A retired toon. :) A fried onion salesman. A Vice Squad policeman. An astronomer. A journalist. A baron. A pilot. A stewardess. A hunter. An artist. A karate "sensei". A general. A film director. A vampire hunter. A vampire. A flycatcher. An angler. A Viking (in the intro). A major (? - in the intro). A rugby player (in the intro). A samurai (? - in the intro). A baseball coach. A psychiatrist. An ophthalmologist. A star of the cartoon "Godzilla vs Rear Admiral Floyd" (or similarly titled). An angel (yep!). A grandfather trader - or do you call it slave trading? A _real_ police officer. A lorry driver. A man hit by a falling tree in a park. :) A psychotic "psychiatrist". A lost "kid" who became C&C's brother. A TV contest host. An "alien". A funfair-stand clerk. A guest on the IMW - IRB wedding. A pin-up girl in a calendar. A statue of something, probably not liberty. A large funfair element.

It would appear so. However, a scene from one of the episodes, where the Folsom Prison Warden meets Geraldo Rearviewa, might cause some doubts. After all, these are _two Red Guys_ meeting each other face to face, and at least one of them seems genuinely surprised. A number of explanations are possible: a) One of the Red Guys was a fake Red. Which one? Take a guess. ;) b) Red, being the devil, has the power of multiplying. ;) c) The scene was fabricated by Red to create more confusion - how devilish! d) There are indeed two Reds - symbolising the two natures of the devil, the bad one, and the remains of the good one (remember, the devil is an _ex-angel_, after all - a _fallen_ angel, but an angel nevertheless!). The bad one, appearing more frequently, manifests himself as the evil personality constantly tormenting Cow and Chicken, and the good one is simply a decent man, law-abiding or even law-guarding (a warden, a soldier, a teacher...). ;) e) Red, as explained earlier, has the powers which allow him to exist in different realities or different locations in one reality at the same time. ;) f) As mentioned in the answer to the question "Who is The Red Guy?", Red may have a brother, who appeared on the show as the Scab Fairy. Geraldo may have actually been Red's brother - or perhaps when they met in prison for the first time, Red noticed the similarity between himself and Geraldo, and decided to treat Mr Rearviewa as his brother, teaching him his tricks such as flying, etc. ;) 12.6.......WAS THAT FOR SERIOUS? Are you kidding? It's all as serious as the show itself. And figure it out yourself! ;) Section 13 - The 'Net 13.1........IS THERE ANY C&C SITE? Yes, and more than one. :) First of all, there are the Cartoon Network sites that everyone knows: http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/ http://www.cartoon-network.co.uk/ But most importantly, there is an official David Feiss site! http://davidfeiss.webjump.com/ The Red Guy has his site as well: http://members.tripod.com/~Red_Guy/ Surprised? No, it isn't an official site, but it is much better than good, and made in a very skilful way. It's one of the best uses of Hell Text Markup Language that I have ever seen. Visit it even if you aren't a Red Guy fan. :) I recommend visiting these C&C fan sites: http://www.ccaa.edu/~mcmurd/cowchick/ (Dan McMurray's Cow and Chicken, Yeah!) http://www.geocities.com/TelevisionCity/Stage/8115/cowchickimweasel.html (Stephan Krabbendam's CCIMW Site) http://www.euronet.nl/users/idi_rad1/cow-and-chicken/ (Cow & Chicken) http://www.geocities.com/TelevisionCity/Studio/5735/ (Cow and Chicken!) http://www.geocities.com/TelevisionCity/Stage/2136/ (C&C Love Page :) ) http://thor.prohosting.com/~patricij/cowand1.htm (Cow and Chicken Page) http://www.euronet.nl/users/idi_rad1/cow-and-chicken/index.html (CC Homepage) http://www.xs4all.nl/~terrible/ccindex.htm (Cow and Chicken Homepage) http://www.captured.com/cow&chicken/ (C&C scenarios for Quake ][/HalfLife) There are many fan pages on C&C. Nearly all of them are in the official C&C Webring, and the link to the ring can be found on Dave's page (he is the ring's owner... surprised? :) ). OK, if you really need the direct link to to the ring, it's: http://www.webring.org/cgi-bin/webring?ring=gthebomb;list There is a C&C newsgroup as well, though it doesn't seem too popular. It's: alt.tv.cow-n-chicken You may also take a look at: alt.tv.cartoon-network alt.animation.warner-bros Section 14 - concerning the FAQ itself 14.1........WHO ASKED ALL THOSE QUESTIONS? Well, I did, primarily. :) And I answered them. It's good to have an intelligent partner in a conversation, right? :) I thought these were more or less the subjects that should be covered in such an FAQ. However, I used a number of actual questions concerning C&C that people asked on newsgroups, WWW boards, their sites, etc. 14.2........ARE THERE ANY OTHER CRAZY & FUNNY CARTOONS LIKE C&C? Well, this is STRICTLY my personal choice, but you might want to take a look at: "Duckman", "Rocko's Modern World", "South Park", "Beavis and Butt-Head", "Ren and Stimpy" and "The Simpsons". "Garfield and Friends", too. "Space Ghost Coast to Coast" as well - though it plays different tunes. :) Perhaps "Tiny Toons" and "Freakazoid", but they are weaker. Same with Dexter and his lab. Johnny Bravo is OK - before C&C Mr B. used to be my fav, actually. :) And some _older_ Bugs cartoons, of course. Bear in mind, though, that while C&C is a two-level show, most of those mentioned are one-level only - and that's the adult level! Oh, yes - there is ONE cartoon VERY much like C&C. It's as insanely funny as the two C's, it's double-levelled, too, and it has a very similar "spirit". What I have in mind is the series about Eek the Cat - in particular, "EEK!stravaganza". Currently it's #2 on my toon list. :) The show's got Charlie Adler in it, too! And, of course, you should watch everything made by the Monty Python crew. Even though it is not a cartoon (well, as a matter of fact, Terry's cartoons are an integral part of MP... :) ). But then, if you saw C&C and liked it, you probably already know everything Pythonish by heart. :) 14.3........WHERE CAN I FIND THIS FAQ?
