Behind The Southern Accents In Adult Swim's 'Squidbillies'

Aug 30, 2019

Squidbillies is one of the longest running shows on Atlanta-based Adult Swim. The animated series follows a family of “anthropomorphic mud squids” in the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia.

Ahead of its 12th season premiere, Chuck Reece of The Bitter Southerner podcast spoke with Nashville-based singer, Elizabeth Cook, and co-creators, Jim Fortier and Dave Willis, at Georgia Public Broadcasting.


Reece asked Cook how she became connected to Squidbillies. Willis recalled hearing Cook’s accent at one of her concerts and felt her voice was the right fit for the telivision show.
