‘Community’ Goes Animated With Three New Online Shorts

Community  Abed's Master Key
NBC

Am I the only one who would totally watch ‘Community‘ as an animated series?  It was incredible enough for the NBC comedy to go stop-motion for 2010′s “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas,” but somehow those crazy cats and Greendale human beings seem perfectly apt to make the leap to artists’ imaginations.

Hot off the heels of their 2012 PaleyFest panel, ‘Community’ has announced that it will air on Hulu and NBC.com three animated shorts that make up one story entitled “Abed’s Master Key,” in anticipation of the show’s glorious March 15 return to the airwaves. 

The short, which features the entire live-action cast lending their voices, follows Abed (Danny Pudi) as he takes a job as Dean Pelton (recent Oscar-winner Jim Rash)’s assistant, thereby gaining access to a master key that unlocks every door at Greendale.

In the words of the EW.com report, “shenanigans ensue.”  We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves.

The shorts were written by web series ‘Ikea Heights’ creators Dave Seger and Tom Kauffman, and will air on Hulu and NBC.com in three separate installments running from March 7 to March 9.  The series itself will return to NBC after its long hiatus with “Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts” on March 15.

Check out the animated trailer for the web series below, and make sure not to “Britta” things up by missing out on ‘Community’ when it returns for the second half of season 3!  Six seasons and a movie forever!
