Cow and Chicken is one of the oddest cartoons to come out of the '90s, but you might have forgotten what makes it so bizarre. So, why is Cow and Chicken so weird?
One of the main characters is a red devil who walks on his butt and bothers children for fun. The title characters were born to a pair of human legs with no torsos, arms, or heads. And episodes have titles like The Ugly Weenie and Grizzly Beaver Safari. One episode was even banned for being too overtly racy and for perpetuating stereotypes about lesbians. Those are just a few examples - it gets even stranger from there.
Just because it's weird doesn't mean it isn't great. While there are plenty of reasons the show isn't exactly appropriate for kids, don't let that stop you from rewatching it now. Just like all the other great Cartoon Network shows, it certainly has its charms. If this list makes you nostalgic for the '90s, rewatch some of the best Cow and Chicken episodes.
