Squidbillies is an American animated television series on Cartoon Network's late night programming block, Adult Swim. An unofficial pilot for the series aired on November 7, 2004, the series later made its official debut on October 16, 2005. The series revolves around the Cuyler family, an impoverished family of anthropomorphic hillbilly mud squids living in the Appalachian region of Georgia's mountains.

There have been a total of 85 episodes during the show's eight seasons. The series also airs in syndication in other countries and has been released on various DVD sets and other forms of home media, including on demand streaming of the first two seasons on Netflix.

Setting and premise[edit]

Squidbillies follows the exploits of the Cuyler family and their interactions with the local populace, which usually results in a fair amount of destruction, mutilation, and death. The Cuylers are essentially given a free rein and protected from the consequences of their actions whenever possible by their friend, the Sheriff (whose name is "Sharif"), as they are said to be the last, twisted remnants of a federally protected endangered species, the "Appalachian Mud Squid". They live in the southern Appalachian Mountains located in northern Georgia. At the epi­cen­ter of this rural par­adise is Dou­gal County, home to crip­pling gam­bling addic­tions, a mur­der­ous cor­po­ra­tion, sex­ual deviants, and the authen­tic south­ern mountain squid.[1]

Production[edit]

Squidbillies is produced by Williams Street Studios, it is written by Dave Willis, co-creator of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Jim Fortier, previously of The Brak Show, both of whom worked on the Adult Swim series Space Ghost Coast to Coast. The animation is done by Awesome Incorporated, with background design by Ben Prisk.
