    This is just a huge example of the how flawless the first season was. It was funny to see the Shag & Scoob being accused of stoners from their eating and laughing especially when Spyro tried to make examples of it from a tape. What really makes the episode is the first appearance of Peanut, a strange but hilarious character of the series. He definitely makes the show worth watching [next to Harvey and Phil]. The Tab Can scene wasn't so funny, but that was the only problem found here.moreless
  • In this episode we are introduced to Peanut who earns a job as Harvey's assistant. As Scooby and Shaggy are put on trial for their erratic behavior, Harvey and the gang must help to clear their names.moreless

    This episode was great to watch. This is also one of my favorite episodes of Birdman. Peanut is such a great new character. I love the hint of rivalry between him and Avenger. That should be promising.



    This episode helps to put such a creative spin on one of my favorite cartoons (I had never really thought about how Scooby and Shaggy always seemed hungry all the time). It also shows how "good" a lawyer Birdman is (Just ask Magilla Gorilla and the Jetson family). And to think that he couldn't have won if it weren't for those meddling kids!moreless
