Some people may make claims that Hillbillies are the lowest form of humans, due to their generally uneducated ways and their lack of technological advancement. Others point out that even the lowest human on the scale is ever so many leaps and bounds above some of the creatures that are lower on the evolutionary ladder. Squidbillies: Volume One sheds light on what must vie for the lowest ranking possible - Hillbilly squid.
Every show has to have a star, and the star in Squidbillies is Early Cuyler (voiced by Unknown Hinson). He's the red-necked invertebrate that the story is all about. Early lives in a small, run-down shack with his illegitimate son, Russell "Rusty" Cuyler (voiced by Daniel McDevitt), Aunt Lil (Voiced by Patricia French) and "Granny" (voiced by Dana Snyder). This crew puts the "fun" back in dysfunctional, and is forever being visited by "Sheriff" (voiced by Charles Napier), as Early's never been very good at observating the law.
As I began watching Squidbillies: Volume One, I couldn't help but think of Drawn Together, another Adult Swim cartoon which must run neck and neck with this one for the title of "Most Wrong Cartoon Series." Both of these are very entertaining, yet I'm fairly sure that watching either will destroy some small part of your soul. Cartoons such as Squidbillies and Drawn Together are quite definitely not for younger audiences, as the name Adult Swim indicates.
If you want to laugh at stereotypes and senseless violence, then Squidbillies: Volume One has what you're looking for, in spades. Added to this are some pretty darn funny plot twists, such as the "Cloning" project and Dan Halen Enterprises; it seems that running jokes get developed into plot devices as the story goes along.
I had seen the Squidbillies before, but only a couple of episodes, but I knew, based on just a couple of episodes, that I wanted to review Squidbillies: Volume One when I got the opportunity. It's not for the kiddies, but oh so wrongly funny and so sacrelicious.
