Cow and Chicken was not for kids

i think cow and chicken is a ripoff of ren and stimpy and is a very classic show but it was not for kids because it was very vilonte disgusting and disturbing and one of the main characters was the devil who cross dresses and has very suggestive names like officer pants offski lance sackless and the worst being Mrs Beaver and its very vilonte cow runs over chicken with her bike a guy jumps on chicken with cleats a guy is seen hanging over some spikes red guy tries to kill chicken and orders some people to cut off cow and chickens heads chickens stomach flies into the air and has some very dark humor like the red guy shoves a cigarette down chickens throat cows tongue threatens to shoot red guy with a dart boneless chicken keeps getting hurt and almost dies a few times in one episode cow and chickens parents go to a place called the sad club and evreyones sad except cow and chickens parents who are seen laughing and it has some very edgy Adult jokes chickens seen dripping wet and his parents ask him were he was chicken wakes up with a dirty magazine on his face cow reads a note that says i got crabs and pauses at the word crabs chickens dad said he spent his greatest days in the girls bathroom chicken walks by a tampon machine a guy says chicken has a purdy beak red guy gets pat down by the police and gets a little to excited and theres a dont drop the soap joke and a cake that says happy manhood on it with that being said i dont recommend it for anyone under the age of 14

Horrible show and major waste of time

Not a show for children, episodes were either boring or disgusting. Those who claim to enjoy it are nostalgic junkies who believe anything from the 90s is amazing. Only positive aspect is the character the red guy a creative villain who made the show slightly entertaining.
