Robot Chicken's DC Special Mixes Obscenity, Continuity Porn

By / 08.17.12

I’m a huge fan of Twisted Toyfare Theater, Robot Chicken‘s spiritual ancestor, but one of the problems the series had that it could never overcome was the humorlessness of DC’s lawyers. DC characters were banned from being featured in the strip, something that lasted until Wizard went off the stands for good.

Which means the entire writing staff has been sitting on a massive pile of Justice League jokes and obscure continuity gags. All of which seem to be stuffed into this special.

In thirty seconds there are more jokes here than I ever would have thought possible. It’s pretty clear they’re digging deep into DC continuity, considering they manage to put all of DC’s cold-themed villains into one sketch (and also give Chillblaine the dismissal he so richly deserves) and also refer to the more obscure Green Lanterns.

Also, it’s really weird how satisfying it is to see Luthor getting a kickball to the face.

This’ll premiere September 9th, and likely be run repeatedly before being put out on a special edition DVD.
