Today's fans only know about Birdman as the ambulance-chasing Harvey Birdman, Attorney-At-Law, who appeared on Cartoon Network's [adult swim]. However, before he began wearing a 3-piece suit over his costume, Birdman soared into action on NBC in 1967, with the Galaxy Trio as a backup feature.
While his 21st century doppleganger was killed off several months back, now, I think, would be a good time to bring back the true Birdman. That is, assuming WB has enough stones to take a chance. Actor Keith Andes provided the voice of Birdman, seemingly his only cartoon credit.
Here's Birdman battling "X The Eliminator":
Birdman had only one season's worth of episodes, which played on until the end of 1968, at which point, the series was cancelled to make room for The Storybook Squares. From time to time, episodes will resurface on Boomerang, just to keep the Solar Sentinel in the public eye, and remind fans of what he was before the idiots at [adult swim] got their hands on him.
