Exclusive Clip: ROBOT CHICKEN Brings Christmas to Adult Swim
By Shawn Depasquale on December 15, 2013
“This isn’t About Chanukah.”
It sure isn’t! Adult Swim proudly decks their halls with two fantastic Christmas-themed shows.
First up, Robot Chicken celebrates the reason for the season with a collection of holiday-themed shorts, including my personal favorite, a much more realistic interpretation of the ending to the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, the use of the term “Code Brown,” and a hilarious appearance from the Easter Bunny.
We’ve got an exclusive clip from the special that shows not everyone knows the words to “Over the River and Through the Wood”.
Robot Chicken – “Born Again Virgin Christmas Special”
Premieres Monday, December 16 at Midnight (ET, PT) on Adult Swim
Robot Chicken takes down Christmas once again! Our writers reveal the origins of the Heat Miser and Cold Miser. Witness Ebenezer Scrooge learn the true TRUE meaning of Christmas. Learn the perils of getting a job at the North Pole. Discover how Santa Claus ruined World War One’s greatest day!
First up, we’ve got an NTSF:SD:SUV:: episode that’s got an impressive amount of comedy for a 10 minute running time, including the quote at the top of this post. Thomas Lennon’s terrorist Mall Santa cracked me up based on appearance alone, but also, his pronunciation of the words “colon” and “Christmas” is worth setting your DVR for this great holiday episode.
NTSF:SD:SUV:: – “Wreck the Malls”
Premieres Thursday, December 19 at 12:15 a.m. (ET, PT) on Adult Swim
It’s an NTSF:SD:SUV:: Christmas, which means murderous Santas, the gift of corpses, and verbal slights to all other religions. This year, Trent’s children learn the true meaning of Christmas when a terrorist Mall Santa takes over the mall, trapping them inside with only their wits as weapons, while locking out the rest of their team, desperate to get in and continue shopping for last minute gifts.
