  • Rednek squids?

    What I hate about this show, is the fact that it does not make any sense. Racist, rednek, crappily drawn squids are the main characters. They live in a human's world on land with no water and live. And to top that off none of the human characters don't find that odd. Why did we get a second season?
  • Squid + Hillbilly = wasted 15 minutes of your life...

    After forcing myself to watch two episode, this is easily the second worst idea Williams Street has had (12 oz. Mouse being the first).

    The writers/animators at Comedy Central could have done a better job with this idea... even FOX could have done better, but the concept is bad from the start.
  • not worth the cable bill.

    Adult-swim/Williams Street is truly scraping the bottom of the barrel with crap like this. Crude humor, horrible animation, earbleed-inducing voices, dimestore plot and stories, it just plain sucks. Do yourself a favor, skip this, along with that \"12 oz Mouse\" crap. Just wait 15 minutes for something else to come on.
  • Without a doubt the WORST show I have ever seen!!

    This is so bad, I can't even think of how to begin to describe how awful this show is, but I will try. I have only seen about two or three episodes, or maybe four and I don't know how I lived through it. If you have never seen it, just do yourself a favor and never ever watch it because you will regret it for the rest of your life if you even watch more than 1 minute of this crap. The show is not really about anything, just squid-like creatures doing stupid stuff. This is so bad it makes adult men cry. I wish I could rate it 0.0 (or negative infinity), but the rating bar won't let me go below 0.5. So that's all I have to say because I think I'm going to be sick if I think about this show any longer. Just avoid Squidbillies forever.
  • Two wrong things don't make one good

    This series mixes the comedy of a psyco with the drawing of a little kid. It's as bad as 12 oz. mouse.
  • i dont get this show?

    the graphics are horrible, the caracters are lame, why??? why would they put this on adult swim!! Futurama and Family guy are ok but the others and squidbillies rot! ugh! it doesn't even make sense! Squids on a show for adults, how lame! You know what, no wonder its before the good shows, this i can't stand, i just wish i can go to the place were its running and destroy it! and they sound so stupid, i hate this show so much! ah, its just my opinion, i don't really care who likes it or not, so theres my opinion.
  • A poorly drawn cartoon about hillbillies... in the form of squids

    This show has a bad background. All the characters seem to be able to randomly die, it's not funny anymore. It was good with Kenny (south park). The jokes aren't funny, it's just proving how retarded they are and we're supposed to enjoy that? The art is equally horrible. Doesn't give much to want to watch, I could enjoy/dislike it just as well without watching and just listening to it while I do other things, there's nothing there in terms of visual. The characters are also random to a degree where it's got funny lines like my favorite quote from this
    "But I want one of those tiny babies... you know... the kind that I can cuddle and hug and leave in the backseat of a hot car as I go play Video Poker". As entertaining as that one was, it's not enough to have one laugh every few disturbing episodes to make up for it.
  • This show is horrible!

    Okay, I'm from the south, and we don't act like these stupid squids do! All of the jokes are not funny to me. Some of it is just gross! The plot is uninteresting, just some squids acting stupid in the south. The characters(can't remember all of their names because I haven't seen the show in a while) are not good either. I'm sorry if my review makes people that like this show mad, it's just my opinion. Watch Futurama, Family Guy, American Dad, or anything else other than this. You will waste 15 minutes of your life watching this. Bad plot, characters, and jokes.
  • it isnt very good

    Squidbillies is about a bunch of redneck squids who live in the applachain mountains the is a father a son a grandma and another 1 i odnt rememberw ho she is. There is also a sheriff. They go around doing stupid redneck things trying to be funny but rarely suceeding. The animaiton is one of the worst I have ever seen besides home movies and 12 oz. mouse. If the animation was better the show would be a little better. The only really funny part was the patrick swayze epsiode when rusty was dancing on him. I have watched this show like 12 times it reminds me of athf.I wouldnt really care if it got cancelled.
  • A cartoon that uses hillbilly and redneck stereotypes for a show.

    This show is pretty damn horrible, I've been
    a fan of Cn shows but this one is like one
    user said the bottom of the barrel. There
    is really no incentive to watch this. The
    animation is cheap, the characters are
    unlikable and the show's quick gimmick
    of southern stereotypes gets old very quickly.

    If you want a better toon watch the Boondocks,
    Venture Bros of AQHF.
  • A huge dissapointment

    I respect everything the William Street people are doing. Having programs with off-kilter humor and showcasing great adult cartoons that don't have to be Southpark or Drawn Together (Filled with unnecessary amount of unfunny profanity). So when I heard they were coming out with two new original shows 12 oz. Mouse and Squidbillies I was completely stoked. Then I saw them.

    To start off Squidbillies and 12 oz are just not funny at all. They are way to weird (Not cool weird) that it's just like they were trying to hard. That is a perfect way to sum this show up trying WAY to hard to be funny. It just doesn't work although with ATHF which is sort of the same brand of humor but it actually works. ATHF has good characters an actual humor.

    So overall these shows are just trying to hard and it was a big let down. William Street I expect so much more with shows like Home Movies, ATHF, and Harvey Birdman you can do obscure humor. Squidbillies and 12 oz Mouse are just big bombs of a show I'm sorry.
  • Wait..What?

    What on earth is this? This isn't a show, its random compilation of redneck sterotypes and stupid jokes, complete with the fact that it doesn't really even make sense. I mean, I'm sure this was simply a last minute idea, that someone didn't expect to even make it to prime time, but somehow it did, and the result is a show that is now on primetime and does not deserve its timeslot. Hey, its the Beverly Hillbilles with squids that somehow got stranded on DRY land, which could not happen. I know this is a cartoon, but still, its pointless. There are better things you could be watching.
  • Wait. Wait for it. Wait.

    Many people think this show is stupid. I don't. I personally love this show. I even downloaded the theme onto my MP3. The animation may not be good, but its a LOT better then 12oz Mouse! Even though 12oz Mouse is a good show. So give it a shot. If ya don't like, or even hate it, well than, get ready for some serial pain, cause we still got 90 more episodes to go. >:^)
  • This show is ok lol.

    There are lots of things I can say about this show. But I will only say this. It is ok. Just thinking about some of it makes me luagh. The show has virtually no plot accept this. They are squids... in the deep south. Now there is no story line for this show it begins and ends in thirty minutes. Now sometimes they die in the end of the episode and they come right back in the next one. That right there is a weird part. But overall the weirdest episode is the first one. Showing how Rusty grew up. The sheriff is my favorite character.
  • Earl (Early) Cuyler, his son Rusty and his sister Lil are three of the most redneck squids you will ever find this side of the Mississip'! Their crazy backwards antics are approaching endearing, though oddly not far from the North Georgian truth.

    This show outright caught me off guard. The first time I watched it (the pilot episode) my first instinct was "what the hell???" The second episode too really only left me shaking my head in confusion. Sadly, I actually stopped watching this show for a time after this.
    Not much long after though, a friend pointed out that not only are they releasing new episodes, the later episodes of the first season were quite funny! After a bit of convincing, I tried again. I promise you, if you stick with it, you won't be disappointed!!!
    This show takes place in North Georgia. Early, an ex-con, his illegitmate son Rusty and his sister Lil live together in a shack of sorts, but the story takes place all over the town. Without delving into the specifics of the story, just imagine the most hickish people you can, given the above characters and you've got your story!
    The characters are extremely convincing down to the subtle nuances of hillbillishness! The humor is very dry, but if you have any experience with this sort of culture, you'll instantly see the writers of the show are very accurate. This show has quickly become a favorite of mine, and I cannot wait for the new episodes!
  • Squidbillies--NOTHING like it--now or ever!!

    The only thing I don't like about Squidbillies is that it's only 15 minutes long! More episode please and make them at least one half hour! I lived in New York City for 25 years and moved to West Virginia two years ago--Early--you are my role model!--Those city slickers have nothing on you!!! You got the wisdom. guts and glory of the "Hills" coursing through your veins!!! Love the way you cut through all the crap--so refreshing after living with pretentious New Yorkers for SOO many years!! Would be great if you made your hats available to the public! Think up a few more logo's and sell "Early" hats, folks!! Hang in there Rusty--it's hard to be a teenager--but you'll make it--You're country folk--!!!! Hope to see this cartoon unfold like the rare wildflower that it is!!!! MORE!! Bravo!!!!!!
  • Best new show (cartoon or not) in ages

    I don't understand how anyone who enjoys sarcastic, eccentric comedy doesn't love this show. The two most common criticisms are missing the point. First, the rough animation is appropriate, and in perfect keeping with the show's tone and content. Second, the redneck-inspired humor is hilariously accurate---and besides, how could anyone take offense at jokes mocking stupid people? The show isn't insulting all southerners, just dumb ones. Face it, there are lots of people like these squid...but they tend to get mad if you laugh at them.

    The show's simplistic presentation masks a nonstop stream of hilarious jokes. I rarely watch any show more than once, but I've seen the job-hunt episode four times and catch something new every time. Just about every line is absurdly amusing. I sincerely hope the show continues, and finds the audience it deserves.
  • One of the funniest shows I've seen; an excellent parody of hillbilly life.

    Squidbillies is simultaneously one of the funniest shows I've seen in years, and an excellent parody of hillbilly life. As an outsider living near where the show's supposed to be set, it is easy for me to relate to - and while it took a while, I'm addicted now!

    Since I started watching Adult Swim, I've enjoyed quite a few of their non-anime shows, but few of them have come close to being as funny as Squidbillies (perhaps Aqua Teen Hunger Force is closest; the two shows share a lot in terms of their bizarre nature, but Squidbillies is a more direct parody a theme than is ATHF).

    To the folks who claim to hate it, let me say this. I've gotten four or five close friends to watch Squidbillies. In every case, they claimed not to like it after the first episode. In every case, I twisted their arm into watching another one or two episodes, by which time they were falling about laughing and asking to see more. Each time, I then got them to rewatch the first episode and they've loved it.

    To summarise: Watch it a bit more; you'll like it. You just have to give it a chance, relax, and stop trying to find fault. ;)
  • Why would Adult Swim use squids for a show?

    I really don't like this show. I mean, it's just a pathetic show about redneck squids! 'Squidbillies' has got to be one of the dumbest shows that Adult Swim has come up with, I mean REALLY!!! I don't even know why someone would watch this! If you want to watch something on Adult Swim, watch 'FullMetal Alchemist'. I am warning you, do not watch this! I don't care if more than 5,000 users disagree with my review.
  • Just sit down on the a bed. Stick your feet up in the air. And pass the home made pipe bomb around.

    Squidbillies is actually quite funny. It's definately a replacement for 12 ounce mouse or Tom goes to the mayor. It's another one of those "Relax'r" shows where you have your laughs without the annoying suspense following it. Except for some crude jokes the show has original comedy. (Going to the therapist which turns out to be the rapist.)

    7.6 is my score.
  • Out of the Blue!

    "Five million years ago, the Atlantic Ocean covered North America all the way to the Ohio Valley. As the ocean receded to form our present-day geography, a family of squids was stranded in a remote setting in the North Georgia mountains. This motley melange of mischievous mollusks, influenced by the rural ways of the redneck locals, quickly "adapticise" to a world of fighting, feuding and fornicating with a Faulknerian flambé of ferocious sea creature livin'. The humor lies in the "adapticization.""

    That nails the hammer on the head. Squidbillies is suprisingly good, I can't wait for the next season to start!


    I must say that at first this show was a little hard to follow, and the episode where they light a big bonfire and yell about "whites" borders on inane; however, overall it is a freaking hilarious show. The humor ranges from blatant to subtle (and the subtle humor is some of the best on tv). It truly captures the essence of white trash, podunk, redneck, etc. I hope they release many more seasons of this show!
  • A bunch of squids live in the georgia mountains and are always getting into trouble

    I was hook when I first saw this show one of the best shows on adult swim urly cyler and rusty are so awsome and dan halen has to be the best villian ever created for a cartoon and I know alot of people who would say the animations are crude and the topics for episodes are a little dirty but thats whats funny about it that aspect of the show really adds to the trashy redneck story just the things they do are hilarious like making pine cone liqur or pulling a random weapon out of thin air one of my personel favorites
  • I laugh harder than ever when I see this show

    Anyone who hates this show has absolutely no taste. The show revolves around a family of anthropomorphic hillbilly squids-The Cuyler family-that live in the north Georgia mountains in poverty.

    Frankly when I saw this first I just fell in love with it instantley. I love how the Characters are always killed like in South Park and Drawn Together. Dan Halen would have to be my favorite as hes Bad A** and his hair is long and Red like mine! My first guess for his voice would have been Kelsey Grammer instead of Todd Hanson. Also Early would have to be my second Fav. Overall I just love this show and to those with no sense of Humor would only hate this show!
  • Can't get enough!

    Always good for a laugh at the end of a long day. It keeps me saying "Oh No They Didn't!". Genetically altered deep fried living chickens oozing blue cheese...Where it comes from I have no idea, but I can't get enough. I'm always waiting to hear more sexual filth from granny or what Early's hat is going to say next. There's some thing about a a old squid granny in leather that has to make you smile. I swear I have seen Krystal at walmart before or maybe it was the circle K. What ever the reason is I keep coming back for more.
  • It doesn't get better than this one. The writers definitly have a great understanding of the "White Trash" Culture.It is Laugh out loud funny.

    This show has it all, Guns, Cursing, Mullets and Drinking. I think the family this is base on lives down the road from me. A true celebration of "White Trash". It is as funny to look at as it is to listen to. Dads quick to curse, kuss and shoot any thing. I want to live there and hang out with Son #2. Mullets and Acne are funny on any species. A laugh out loud classic
  • Funny, and awesome to look at.

    I checked this show out because it's from the guy who does Meatwad and Carl on Aqua Teen. It's not exactly like Aqua Teen but that's cool because Squidbillies is awesome in its own way. Aqua Teen is great because of the stream of bizarre talking coming out of the characters mouths. Squidbillies is pretty similar when it comes to Early Cuyler, who is an obnoxious violent outlaw redneck squid. His rambling is hilariously musical much like the best Master Shake lines.

    The backgrounds in this show are amazing. The crookedness and the colors and the texture looks cooler than any cartoon I've ever seen. The lines on the characters are squiggly, and some of them look like childrens drawings. In a totally awesome way. The animation is way better than I'd expect an Adult Swim show to have. The characters move smoothly and gesture and make expressions very well.
  • Just terrible....

    Squidbillies, where do I begin? This show is just insanely awful. I think I'll begin with the characters. The characters are boring and unfunny, much like this entire show. Unless you are a hard core hill-Billy, you can not connect to the characters at all! They are stupid, uneducated, and unfunny! Let's move on to the episodes. I have only seen a few episodes and they were terrible. They were plain and very boring. They were also unoriginal. I can't help but feel that my cat could write better episodes, hell - my cat could create a better series! Now to my last factor, the plot of the show. A television show that revolves around the lives of ignorant hill-Billy squids just sounds stupid. And hey guess what?, IT IS!!! Squid hill-Billys has got to be the worst idea for a show since TV Funhouse (the comedy central tv show, not the SNL skits - those were actually okay). Squidbillies will go down in the TV hall of shame alongside the likes of Jersey Shore and Flavor Of Love! That is why I have rated it a ONE!
  • @%#^%^*%#$!!!!

    This show is not even funny at all and to make matters worse, it is on late at night when the majority of people are sleeping. I would rather sleep. It completely reminds me of ATHF with all the crude humor involved. Please do not watch this and watch Family Guy!!!

    It is not worth staying up and drinking Red Bull to watch this.
  • Average

    In the class of off-the-wall comedies like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, this show really doesn't enhance it's genre. It's just more of the same in a different setting. It could turn out to be a good show in another season if they let it grow, but I doubt it.
