Last fall, the twisted minds behind the stop-motion animated series Robot Chicken put their signature spin on the heroes and villains of DC Comics in the Robot Chicken: DC Comics Special. The guys are at it again for a follow-up special expected to air this fall. Collider was invited to a special behind-the-scenes look at the creative process of scripting the show, in which the writers are subjected to a grueling daily extraction of creativity and humor fueled by long-expired Hostess cupcakes in which only the absolute cream of the comedy crop makes the cut. Egos are bruised, personal ailments are dragged into the spotlight for laughs and beloved superheroes are defiled in all new ways. And it all works. READ MORE...

At New York Comic Con today, the Robot Chicken panel kicked off with a sizzle reel for the remainder of Season 6. And while many things got a strong response, none was better received by the NYCC crowd then the reveal that Season 6 will end with... Zombie Joss Whedon! We got a quick glimpse at the stop motion, bloody, snarling Whedon - and then some funny footage of the real Whedon in the voice recording booth doing his best zombie moans and telling the camera this was a role he's been waiting for.

Leave it to Seth Green and the hoodlums over at Robot Chicken to dredge up old school icons of pop culture. Their latest subject, Street Fighter , hasn’t been topical in a decade, but that doesn’t mean it’s safe from stop-motion skewering. This clip imagines what it might actually be like to organize the game’s assortment of beef-headed brawlers and otherworldly ape men. Ryu assumes the unfortunate role of talent agent/tour manager, desperately trying to coordinate the other characters’ fight schedules with the help of an information packet. The other guys, of course, are clueless dimwits and utterly helpless – series baddie M. Bison somehow winds up inside a game of Q*bert – leaving Ryu in a state of Ari Gold-like frustration. Hats off, Robot Chicken , for making Street Fighter relevant (or at least funny) once again. http://popwatch.ew.com/2012/10/10/robot-chicken-tackles-street-fighter/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ew%2Fpopwatch+%28Entertainment+Weekly%2FEW.com%27s%3A+PopWatch%29&utm_content=Google+Reader
Cartoon Network’s heavily-caffeinated mega-spoof Robot Chicken is currently in the middle of its sixth season of frantically satirizing every element of geek culture. Chicken ‘s co-creator and patron saint Seth Green will be at New York Comic-Con tomorrow talking about what’s coming up on the show, but Cartoon Network has given EW.com an exclusive — and, absent any context, somewhat horrifying — image from an upcoming episode. Suffice it to say that you may never watch E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial the same way ever again. Look upon the image if you dare! (And click on the image for a bigger image if you double-dare!) http://popwatch.ew.com/2012/10/11/robot-chicken-new-york-comic-con-exclusive-check-out/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ew%2Fpopwatch+%28Entertainment+Weekly%2FEW.com%27s%3A+PopWatch%29&utm_content=Google+Reader

Robot Chicken Star Wars Episode III was the most ambitious of Seth Green and Matt Senreich's Star Wars spoofs: a 45-minute spoof opera that narrated the rise and fall of Emperor Palpatine, plus the adventures of Boba Fett and Gary the Stormtrooper. Now Episode III comes out on DVD tomorrow, with three fricken hours of special features. http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/io9/full/~3/LcOzv776tMk/watch-leia-freaking-out-about-her-slave-outfit-in-a-robot-chicken-deleted-scene
