Cow and Chicken is an American animated comedy television series created by David Feiss. It follows the surreal adventures of two cartoon animal siblings, Cow and Chicken. They are often antagonized by the Red Guy, a cartoon version of the Devil who poses as various characters to scam them.

The pilot episode originally aired as part of Cartoon Network series What a Cartoon on November 12, 1995. The series later made its official debut as a Cartoon Cartoon on July 22, 1997, and ended on August 13, 1999 with a total of 52 episodes (104 segments) over the course of 4 seasons. Cow and Chicken was attached to another segment called I Am Weasel, which was later spun off into its own half-hour series on June 10, 1999.

The series creator David Feiss directed all the episodes, with the co-directions of Monte Young,[a] John McIntyre,[b] and Robert Alvarez.[c]
