Did anyone see the Dark Crystal Spoof on Robot Chicken? It's pretty funny.

Hi... If you have an opinion on the Dark Crystal parody that aired on Robot Chicken, please post here. However, I'd like to remind everyone to be considerate and mindful of what each person ends up posting. Thanks and sorry for the temporary inconvenience.

Thanks for reopening this thread. Yes, that DC Robot Chicken clip has been the highlight of my morning. I think it honors Jim more than anything. The time spent making this, the understanding of the characters and the reverence for the source material demonstrates that. :scary:

Thanks SJohnson for posting about this! :super:

I personally thought it was hilarious, however, I remember what happened with the FR flame war. I'm certain the idea was to avoid a similar war where there are some who equate poking fun at anything with blasphemy.

At any rate, I found the entire vid based on that pun was highly amusing.

Oh yes... that guy has been banned, so there really wouldn't be too much of a problem with this sort of thing anymore.

Anyway, I never thought the FR one was blasphemous... just poorly written and executed. Except the part about Doc and Sprocket and Traveling Matt. Other than that, it was one of RC's big misses.

Now THIS one was pure gold. In fact, it would have been much funnier had it not been all too true. This showed that they did the research on everything out there. This was one of their best Muppet sketches... right up there with the Behind the Music: The Electric Mayhem.

Considering a thread about a two-bit forgettable reality show, I'm not entirely sure.

Anyway, yeah, I'll grant you the FR one was of less quality than this one. The only thing that I would have added was having Chamberlain wink at the camera and go MMMMMMMMMM while drinking. But that's just me. :big_grin:

Well, I meant about Robot Chicken.... but that's enough of that.

I really think I was just disappointed by how lame most of the jokes were on the FR one... I can take anything extremely dark if it's at least clever, like this one was. Now the EM one and the Big Bird flu ones were a total riot as well... I wanna see that Gordon Gecko SS one someone was talking about in the references thread.

But mark my words... the best RC skit ever is the Ted Turner Captain Planet one... hands down.

The Fraggle one would only be funny to those who pitched it in some 3 am meeting after hours of writer's block. There are so many funny things they could do. Okay, the postcards were funny. :coy:

Rats! I missed it! Anyone know when it'll re-air? (Just wondered so I can tape it).
