Squidbillies is a series on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim about a couple of squids who are also hillbillies, created by the same team behind Aqua Teen Hunger Force and The Brak Show.

The history of the series is rocky at best. Originally, the pilot was to be aired on November 7, 2004 with the full series coming out several months afterwards, as per usual. However, even after several weeks of promotion and advertising, when it came time for the show, viewers were given something entirely different. Instead of airing the pilot for Squidbillies, Adult Swim aired a pilot episode of Perfect Hair Forever, an anime parody also in development, followed by an unusual talk show about Perfect Hair Forever featuring Meatwad, Sharko and Early Cuyler with Space Ghost moderating.

Initially, the overwhelming majority of viewers thought that Squidbillies had never existed and that Adult Swim was pulling an elaborate prank on its audiences, although footage of the pilot was shown at the 2004 San Diego Comicon and DragonCon. It was later revealed that the script for the pilot episode had been rewritten several times and the animated product was eventually scrapped weeks before the advertised airdate. The newly retooled pilot was aired in pieces on April 1, 2005, in a secret sneak preview.
