  • show Description
  • Perfect Hair Forever is a show about a young boy named Gerald who for some unknown reason is going bald. He sets off on an adventure to gain "perfect hair forever" under the guidance of his mentor, Uncle Grandfather, and Rod, The Anime God. He meets many strange individuals who join him in his quest including the Action Hotdog, Norman Douglas (Former the Inappropriate Comedy Tree), The King of All Animals, Twisty (aka Terry), and others. He is thwarted at every step by Coiffio, the Evil Controller of Cats, whose minions include Catman, Model Robot, and the Astronomic Cat.Essentially it's a big parody of Japanese Anime, and is not meant to be taken seriously, at all. Not even a little bit.moreless

    Notes (25)

    • On April Fools Day 2007, this episode was shown in the style of a scratched VHS tape with English subtitles.

    • Kim Manning, Director of Programming for Adult Swim, provides the voice of 'Gerald' in "Perfect Hair Forever."

    • Reportedly, one of the reasons for the delay in the production and release of the "Squidbillies" episodes is that the scripts went through constant rewrites, with at least three occurring between March and October 2004.

    • One rumor involving the reason for Perfect Hair/Anime Talk Show airing rather than the Squidbillies pilot was that the people at Williams Street simply weren't sure where to take the show. That storyboards had been drawn up, scripts written, and even basic animation done, but that both resources and time simply were overtaxed and unavailable, so "Perfect Hair Forever," which had been completed months before, was aired in its place. The 'Anime Talk Show' involving Space Ghost and company was recorded, animated, and edited mere days before broadcast. Or so the rumor goes.

    • Someone on the "Perfect Hair" production staff is a Democrat. In the WingDings-font credits for the show they showed in the "Squidbillies" slot ("Perfect Hair Forever"), in the first block of incomprehensible text there was a string of four symbols: the "No" circle-slash, a G, a lowercase omega, and a B. "No GWB".

    • Several minutes of "teaser" footage for the Squidbillies public debut were created for the 2004 San Diego Comicon in San Diego and the 2004 Dragon con in Atlanta. The initial reaction was mixed, with most fans unsure of what to make of the show.

    • "Squidbillies" is animated almost entirely in Flash, the same computer program used to produce and animate "Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends," created by Craig McCracken (who also created "The Powerpuff Girls").

    • This was Sharko's "official" introduction into the Adult Swim menagerie of characters. Although Sharko (voice of Matt Thompson) appeared as a guest on Space Ghost's talk show discussing what it is everyone just saw, he did so mere days before the new episodes of Sealab 2021 in which he appeared aired. While he "died" on Space Ghost's talk show thanks to Squidbilly Early Kyler and a very hungry bear, Sharko would later go on to appear in the 2004 Sealab 2021 episodes 'Joy of Grief,' 'Sharko's Machine,' and 'Return of Marco.'

    • They drop the F bomb in this episode despite being rated TV 14.

    Allusions (4)

    • Uncle Grandfather refers to Gerald at one point as "Gerald Bald Z," a parody of the Japanese Anime "Dragon Ball Z."

    • When an external view of Japanese Bear Dad's house is shown, we see on the street sign on the left of the shot. The street that Japanese Bear Dad live's on is Desolation Row, which may be a reference to a Bob Dylan song.

    • There is a small framed picture of Mouse Fitzgerald(the main character in 12 Oz. Mouse) outside the network executive's office.

    • Coffio: I will end you! How do you like them apples? This was an exact line from the 1997 movie Good Will Hunting.
