RC_Series_1-3_packshots

I’ve laughed my ass off watching the two star wars Robot Chicken specials but other than the occasional clip I stumble across on youtube I’ve not watched much of the series itself.

Anyway check out the press release for all the info on the upcoming DVD being released.

ROBOT CHICKEN is back and this time it’s personal! Season 2 of the toy murderin’, attention-span shatterin’ TV series comes to DVD on the 28th September 2009.

A special edition box-set containing seasons 1, 2 and the never-seen-before season 3 will also be available on 28th September.

Created by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, Robot Chicken Season 2 is a no-holds-barred assault on popular culture featuring celebrity abuse and doll-on-doll violence. Utilising stop-motion animation Robot Chicken Season 2 is 20 fifteen minute episodes of fastly-paced sketches. This series no celebrity is safe from the Robot Chicken treatment.

ROBOT CHICKEN SEASONS 1, 2 & 3 feature an impressive list of vocal talent from creator Seth Green and features a slew of regular guest stars such as Seth McFarlane (Family Guy), Scarlett Johansson, Ashton Kutcher, Zac Efron, Vince Vaughan, Snoop Dogg and Christian Slater. Highlights of Season 2 include Lindsay Lohan entering the world of Highlander and decapitating Hilary Duff, Bugs Bunny goes Hip Hop with Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd and Dr Dre make a comic nod toand‘8 Mile’, George Bush discovers he has Jedi powers, The Foo Fighters forge an unlikely alliance (with who?) and tribute is paid to Michael Jackson in a zombie Thriller show down….

Following the recent DVD release of ROBOT CHICKEN: STAR WARS EPISODE 2 which entered the TV charts in the number No. 1 spot.

ROBOT CHICKEN SEASONS 1,2 & 3 feature every episode of the Emmy Award-winning  show. This special edition brings all the hilarity of Robot Chicken in one hit. Featuring all the regular voices and more celebrity cameo’s than you can mention in one release! Highlights from season 3 include Sarah Michelle Geller pedaling a Japanese yeast infection cream, Albert Einstein and his wife have couple’s therapy and voice over artist has trouble while cutting a Michael Bay trailer as his voice is drowned out by constant explosions!

How it all began:

All of this mayhem started over a love of toys. Having worked throughout the comic book industry Matthew Senreich had risen through the ranks at comic bible Wizard to become editor of their Toy Fare publication. While attending the annual Comic Con in San Diego he ran into actor Seth Green (Austin Powers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and a friendship blossomed over their mutual love of action figures. Thus an idea was struck to take a loving swipe at everything from Star Wars to George Bush by animating their beloved toys – every man’s drea right? But where did the obscure title come from? Seth Green explains, “Um, “ROBOT CHICKEN” was a dish from the Chinese restaurant where we ordered take-out.”

Name settled and shows in production, ROBOT CHICKEN has gone on to become Adult Swim’s highest rated original show in the USA, winning an Emmy for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation in 2006 and 2007 and it was recently nominated for two more Emmy’s this year for parody episode ROBOT CHICKEN: STAR WARS EPISODE II.
