So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law is the Adult Swim series as filtered through the lens of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (presumably with the approval of publisher, Capcom). There's also some Dragon's Lair in there, with full motion video making up the vast majority of the game. Featuring most of the show's cast and sharing its sense of humor, there's plenty to enjoy for fans who don't mind the minimal degree of interactivity.

Also, there are Street Fighter character cameos hiding around inside the game as well.

Configuration File

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Are these features still locked away in the game?

Sitting in the root of the disc is a thoroughly commented configuration file, cdgame.txt. Included are references to a variety of debugging features, from SKIP_MOVIES to DEBUG_TEXT and LEVEL_SELECT, as well as settings for platforms other than the Wii (the game was simultaneously released on PlayStation 2 and PSP). The file doesn't appear to be read from at run-time, so the features it alludes to cannot be activated through editing.
