What is Squidbillies (TV) About?
Squidbillies is a critically acclaimed American animated television series. It was created by Jim Fortier, Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro for Cartoon Network's late night programming block, Adult Swim. The series showcases the misadventures of an impoverished, anthropomorphic hillbilly squid clan known as the Cuyler family. Set within the setting of the rural region of Georgia, it delivers a satirical take on the Southern part of the United States and its deep-rooted traditions. The family's escapades offer comical insight into situations revolving around ceaseless unemployment, substance abuse, senseless violence and other matters embodying Southern caliginous lifestyle. Additionally, its commentaries on American culture and politics, along with the usage of surreal humor and coarse language, set it apart among animated sitcoms aimed towards adult audiences. Its outlandish humor allows Squidbillies to feature unconventional plotlines, which, while bizarre, factor in its massive appeal.
The first episode of Squidbillies aired on November 07, 2004 and the most recent episode to air was on December 13, 2021.
