DVD Review: The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special is Frightfully Funny!

March 12, 2018

Daniel XIII; the result of an arcane ritual involving a King Diamond album, a box of Count Chocula, and a copy of Swank magazine, is a screenwriter, director, producer, actor, artist, and reviewer of fright flicks…Who hates ya baby?

Robot Chicken, those pop culture skewering puppets turn their goofy gaze upon gut munching soap opera The Walking Dead in the appropriately titled The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who’s Walking. Over the course we learn the true story of The Walking Dead as visitors to a TWD themed museum in the future are set straight by someone who knows the tale best (though they may want to do a special edition to change said character for…reasons). Anyway, when I say true-story I mean a series of short skits of varying levels of offensiveness (speaking of which, all of the F-bombs hat would be censored on Adult Swim are front and center here) and stupidity (the good kind, not the unbearable, obnoxious variety)…where most of the major storylines (as of October 2017) and characters are lampooned to admittedly hilarious effect…and there’s also a musical number or two as one does.
Along with the twenty two minutes of non-stop laughs referenced above, this Warner Bros. DVD release also features a large selection of eerie extras and beastly bonus content including: two hilarious commentaries with cast and crew, two glimpses behind the scenes of the special (one with a look at how it was put together, the other containing interviews with the creators), cut sketches (and an interview feature with those responsible concerning which sketches were their favorites), and a bit of nonsense (surprised?) about what the shows mascot, the eponymous Robot Chicken itself would sound like if they were a member of the shambling undead!
If you are a fan of either Robot Chicken or The Walking Dead, this release will be an obvious no-brainer to own, especially with the frightfully funny features contained within…but I’ve never been more than casually into either program and I still laughed my arcane ass off like a complete lunatic!
