The elusive Squidbillies come to DVD

Adult Swim adds Squidbillies: Volume One to the lineup thanks to Warner Home Entertainment.

It’s not all drinking, brawling and reckless gunplay for the Squidbillies. Occasionally, they use crossbows. There’s also hate, love, sex, a multinational drywall conglomerate, cockfighting, the penal system and a deep-seated mistrust of authority, all told through the lives of a family of squids left behind when the pre-historic oceans receded from the North Georgia mountains. Early, fresh out of the correctional facility, must try to rehabilitate himself while dealing with the fevered wishes of his ubiquitous bottle of brown liquor. Early fills his sensitive offspring/bastard son Rusty, with all the love and patience he can afford, which is to say, none. Rusty and Early try to build a life with Early’s sister, Lil, a hair stylist/meth lab technician. And when she is not in deep in conversation with Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior, Granny, the clan’s matriarch, occasionally stops by for a visit.

The set includes some deleted scenes, behind the scenes footage and the featurette “How I Make the Damn Show”.

The DVD arrives on October 17th with a $29.98 suggested retail price.
