  1. Hacked Power Glove Gives Robot Chicken the World’s Baddest Bionic Animator

    He's the a wizard.

    A DIY stop-motion animation helper would be cool on its own, but Robot Chicken animator Dillon Markey took the idea one step further by building the functionality into an old Nintendo Power Glove. Sadly, the Power Glove is much better at animation than it ever was at playing games, no matter how much The Wizard made us all want one.

  2. Robot Chicken Season 7 Will Include A Second DC Comics Special, Plus A Cameo By George R.R. Martin

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    One of the many constants in this universe is that every pop culture franchise you love will eventually be ruined by Robot Chicken. Given the current prominence of comic book superheroes and Game of Thrones, respective skewerings were probably inevitable. Speaking with Zap2it, Robot Chicken co-creator Seth Green commented that as far as DC Comics goes, "There's no real line we can't cross." Oh boy.

  3. Wreck-It Ralph Gets Its Medal, Wins Big at the Annie Awards

    I'll Allow It

    Wreck-It Ralph was the King (Candy) at last night's Annie Awards, beating out Brave and ParaNorman for Best Animated Feature. It was nominated alongside Hotel Transylvania, Frankenweenie, Rise of the Guardians, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, and The Rabbi's Cat too, but honestly, did any of those have a chance? Actually, speaking realistically ParaNorman was a long shot as well, but I really (really really really... ) wanted it to win and may have deluded myself as to its chances a little.

  4. Adventure Time, Green Lantern, Robot Chicken, and More Are Coming to Netflix. Finally!

    Oh Mah Glob Guys

    Starting this March, I will have no excuse not to watch Adventure Time, as it—along with a slew of other offerings from Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. Animation, and Adult Swim—will be available for streaming on Netflix. Yay for no more dodgy YouTube vids! Just kidding. There will always be dodgy YouTube vids.

    It's Aliiiiiiiiiiiive!

    We're pretty excited for this Robot Chicken DC Comics Special.

As Green said, it's the "whole Robot Chicken story within this awesome universe.” And the trailer looks pretty freaking hilarious, we have to say. (via Collider)

    And I'll Form the Head!

    A LEGO film seems long overdue considering the toy properties that have gotten Hollywood's attention over the last few years but will this one be a hit? I'm gonna go ahead and say yes considering this news. The film, titled Lego: The Piece of Resistance, will bring Batman and Superman together on the big screen for the first time in special cameos. Hit the jump to find out who will be voicing them and whether or not other franchise characters could be joining them!

  8. More Details About Robot Chicken‘s DC Comics Special, Including Cast Members!

    where does he get those wonderful toys

    Back in October, at New York Comic Con, the creators of Adult Swim's Robot Chicken announced that they'd be doing a special centered solely on the DC universe. But at that point, there wasn't much for them to show us, aside from all the sketches they'd already done with DC characters. Now, however, is a different story, because they have announced a cast of pretty amazing people to provide voice talent. We also know it will be coming this fall, probably just in time to promote at the next NYCC. Seriously, even this Marvel girl is psyched for this.

  9. All the Trekkie Ladies? All the Trekkie Ladies! [Video]

    The Final Frontier

    How this has been sitting around on the internet for nearly a year with only about a thousand views is heartbreaking. We are here to rectify this situation and give this Robot Chicken-y video the love it deserves. Ladies and Gentlenerds: Captain Picard, Geordi LaForge, and Data, as action figures, dancing to Beyonce's "Single Ladies." Made by YouTube user pivotalproduction. (via Elliott Serrano)

  10. Robot Chicken Creators Open Their Own Stop-Motion Animation Studio

    Insidery

    Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, creators of the fifteen minute show that made you feel very uncomfortable about your nostalgia, announced this weekend that they would be merging their producing business, Stoopid Monkey, with stop-motion studio Buddy Systems, to launching their very own stop-motion studio. And call it Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. Yes, really. In someways this represents a new direction for Robot Chicken and in others a return to its roots.

  12. Warner Bros. Is Making a “Live-Action Hybrid” LEGO Movie, Not Totally Sure What That Means

    Just Go With It

    Warner Bros. announced that it has officially greenlit a LEGO movie, calling it a "CG-animated/live-action hybrid." Um, we kind of don't know exactly how to interpret that or how the famous Danish building toys come into play, but we'll know for sure in 2014, because that's when it's coming to theaters. What we do know is that the LEGO set based on the LEGO movie will be the most meta tie-in that ever meta-ed.

  13. MODOK Hosts a Marvel House of Horrors! [Video]

    Excelsior!

    This is what happens when Robot Chicken meets Marvel meets the horror/supernatural genre and they all get drunk together and say "Let's make something, you guys!": MODOK puts on an Elvira costume -- with breasts -- and hosts a Marvel-themed horror show. I honestly can't tell if this is Halloween or Christmas! (Marvel on YouTube via Topless Robot)

  14. Spread The Word: Mark Hamill Would Voice The Joker For The Killing Joke

    Fangasm

    I'm a happy camper when I hear either Kevin Conroy or Mark Hamill's names associated with Batman and the Joker. The two actors have become synonymous to those roles thanks to Bruce Timm's Batman: The Animated Series and subsequent features in which they appear. Most recently, the duo lent their voices to the sequel to the video game Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, but Hamill caused a stir when he tweeted something just a few days ago that led us all to believe that was his last time playing the Joker. Hamill has now ammended his statement to add a few exceptions to his new no-Joker rule - more Arkham and the controversial Alan Moore story, The Killing Joke

  15. Here’s a Sneak Peak at Robot Chicken‘s DC Comics Special

    If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it

    Geoff Johns and the makers of Robot Chicken had a particularly surprising announcement just over a week ago at New York Comic Con: Star Wars was no longer the only major franchised fictional universe to hand itself over to the stop-motion-giving-you-uncomfortable-feelings-about-your-childhood-memories television show for an entire episode of parody. Here's the very preview clip that was aired at NYCC. Needless to say, this is Robot Chicken. Not safe for kids, not safe for work. Also, I have never felt so weird about using this category before.

  16. NYCC: Macaulay Culkin Licks Seth Green’s Face [Video]

    What It Says On the Tin

    This happened: At the panel for Robot Chicken Season 5.5, someone asked if show creator Seth Green and occasional show talent Macaulay Culkin could do a sexy pose. So, they did, because Seth Green and Macaulay Culkin would never disappoint you. (And as far as I know, because I haven't seen it, this is not a scene from Party Monster.) (via BuzzFeed)

  17. Old Skool Saturday: Stop-Action Jonny Quest Intro [Video]

    this exists

    This is what happens when Robot Chicken and The Venture Bros. get into a way-back machine together and something goes horribly wrong. Except it actually went wonderfully right. I'd like to make a Doctor Who reference about what happens when there's hanky-panky in the TARDIS, I will be giving away a gigantic spoiler. But let's just sit back and enjoy this stop-action version of the intro to Hanna-Barbera's Jonny Quest (the original is here for comparison) by Roger D. Evans. (Geek Tyrant)

  18. Finally: An Article Concerned With What Men Really Want (No, Really)

    The Idiot's Lantern

    Hollywood Reporter has an article about the challenges faced by TV executives in marketing to a particular demographic. No, not women! This is actually not another article talking about how hard it is to market towards a female audience! This is actually about men, specifically those in the 15-34 age demographic. And surprisingly enough, it's not a matter of catering to the lowest common denominator because the most popular shows watched by men are hardly what you'd consider "filler." And the reasons they like what they like are truly anthropological. This is insightful, interesting, and not your typical "What Men Want" article.

  20. 10 Geeks Who Turned Geekdom Into Comedy Gold

    Power Grid

    Some might say that most comedians were some form of nerd or geek. Insecurity tends to breed comedy, usually when the target of a joke wants to beat someone else to the punch. But how many comedians have truly, honestly held on to the geekiest parts of their lives and then turned it into amazing comedy material? Only the best of the best. In honor of April Fools Day, this week's Power Grid takes a look at 10 geek comedians who had the last laugh and have been voted "Most Likely to Make a Reference to Something You'll Have to Google."
