The Smoking Gun (2005) is an animated sketch comedy series adapted from true stories sold on The Smoking Gun, a website which posts legal documents, arrest records, and mugshots, generally of celebrities. Each story was re-enacted with some comedic embellishment using marionettes. The six-episode series was aired on CourtTV in 2005. In 2006, the series was broadcast on Adult Swim in a test run while the network was considering ordering new episodes. New episodes were not ordered, however, and the Smoking Gun brand is now owned by TruTV.



Due to the sketch nature of The Smoking Gun, the series did not have a static cast with the exception of narrator Chip Bolcik.
