Home Video Preview: Robot Chicken Season 6
Today! October 8, Robot Chicken returns to Blu-ray™ and DVD in all of its stop-motion – and Emmy® Award-winning – glory in the latest release from Adult Swim, Robot Chicken Season 6! The top-rated, animated television series from co-creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich continues to bring pop-culture parodies to life in the modern take on the variety/sketch show format that has become its trademark.
Take it from ToonBarn, if you’ve never purchased a DVD or Blu-Ray for any of the previous seasons of Robot Chicken, Season 6 is the one you want to get. This is some of the best episodes they have ever done. Those of you who watched it on Adult Swim know what we’re talking about. From the new opening, where the chicken turns the tables on the mad scientist, to the mashup of Shirt Tales and Red Tails, to Wilson the volleyball from Castaway, to the Robot Chicken version of how they really found Bin Laden, you will laugh yourself silly throughout the whole home video version of Season 6.
Featuring all 20 episodes from the series’ latest season on Adult Swim, the Robot Chicken Season 6 Blu-ray and DVD boasts a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes footage and insider-access content – enough to satiate any fan of the series, Adult Swim, and pop culture. It is available on Blu-ray and DVD today (Tuesday, October 8, 2013) for the suggested retail price of $39.98 and $29.98, respectively.

We love all the extras that Robot Chicken provides for the fans of this great Adult Swim show. Chicken Nuggets is especially cool. You get to watch 3 of the Season 6 episodes, where the silhouette of the Robot Chicken appears several times in the top right of the screen at any given moment during the episode. You have to click on the OK button on your remote when the white robot chicken appears to be able to unlock a video of Matt and Seth explaining something special about the particular scene you are watching. You don’t get this kind of detail anywhere else in home video, folks. Take advantage of it! While you’re at it, watch all of the episodes with commentary, and there is a plethora of inside goodies you won’t hear anywhere else. Obviously, the outtakes is always a great feature, because you get to see the voice artists when they are between takes or flubbing a take during recording. This season’s group of guest voice artists is some of the best they ever had.
