Buffalo Gals is a 7a episode from season 2 of Cow And Chicken.

The episode, from a story written by head writer Bill Burnett aired initially on February 20, 1998 along with the follow-up segment "Cow and Chicken Reclining," was banned by Cartoon Network because of its innuendos implying that the Buffalo Gals are lesbians and its typecasting of lesbians.

The episode contained obvious sexual humor (well, more sexual humor than the show usually contains that is), which includes Mom's line "Oh! the Buffalo Gals, a motorcycle riding gang that randomly breaks into people's homes and chews on their carpets" the name of one of the bikers being "Munch Kelly," the Buffalo Gals singing the traditional song of the same name (Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight?), the Buffalo Gals playing softball and talking about "pitching" and "catching", slang terms for sex.. [1]. The episode aired only once, and was replaced with the episode "Orthodontic Police" in future airings.

According to Bill Burnett, the lesbian undertone jokes never crossed him nor was it the intention for the episode as the story's focus was to show that the Buffalo Gals were "big, bulky woman" who took a liking on Cow for being as bulky and big as them and were disdain to Chicken for being a scrawny male.[1] The jokes were more likely implanted by Feiss and Michael Ryan, whom the former realized that it was done in poor taste.[2]

According to Richard Pursel, Munch Kelly was named after Spumco artist and friend of Pursel's, Craig Kelly.[3]
