StarBirds is an American-Canadian animated space opera action sitcom created by Matt Chaudhary for The Bloo DeTour, Nick@Nite, FX, and Teletoon.

Like The Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park, and Rick and Morty, StarBirds is designed for mature audiences and features black comedy, violence, toilet humor, and pop culture references taken to the extreme.

The show is rated TV-14-DLSV for suggestive dialogue, use of mild strong language, sexual content, and violence. Episodes in home releases, as well as uncut episodes are rated TV-MA.


The show follows the StarBirds, Red/Luke, Chuck/Han, and Stella/Leia. Among the other crew members are Bomb/Obi-Wan Kenobi, Terrence/Chewbacca, etc. They go on misadventures across the universe, however, their lives is occasionally interrupted by attacks from The Empire, King Pig, and F.O.X., so Red/Luke must occasionally team up with his teammates to stop their plans. And all this happens during their daily life.
