A few weeks ago we heard the inspired news that Adult Swim stop-motion animation gurus of 'Robot Chicken' had begun crafting a 'Simpsons' couch gag to air later in the season, and the finished product might just be our favorite couch gag of the year. Donut transformations, exploding Flanders and stop-motion murder await in the 'Simpsons' 'Robot Chicken' couch gag inside!
The network pickups of the last few days might have dominated the news, but that hasn't made us any less excited for Adult Swim's new offerings in the coming year. In addition to a pickup for 'Community' creator Dan Harmon's new series 'Rick and Morty,' Adult Swim has announced a new 'Robot Chicken' DC Comics special sequel, and an hour-long 'Metalocalypse' special amid their new offerings. Get the full list of Adult Swim arrivals inside!
We may not get enough 'Robot Chicken' in our daily lives even after eight years, but that hasn't stopped the long-running Adult Swim series from cranking out six seasons worth of gut-busting stop-motion pop culture comedy, and multiple specials along the way. This Sunday's sixth season finale episode "Immortal" will hop around as much as any 'Robot Chicken' episode, but also take aim at a favored subject of the series and nerd culture in general, 'The Avengers' director Joss Whedon! Preview the terror of zombie Joss Whedon inside!
It seems like only last October (because it was) that 'Robot Chicken' creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich announced that they would produce an all DC Comics special in the vain of their three 'Star Wars' specials. Today, that nerd-dream comes one step closer to reality with the reveal of the upcoming special's all-star cast!
