Robot Chicken Season 8 and RCDC3: Magical Friendship Interviews

Robot Chicken launches another fantastic season of stop-motion animation antics on Adult Swim, Sundays at Midnight ET. Season 8 of Robot Chicken officially launches on October 25th, but you’ll get to see the premiere of Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 3: Magical Friendship the week before that on October 18th.


This is the final installment of the trilogy parodying DC Comics Superheroes and Villains in all their Robot Chicken glory. This third DC Comics Special loosely focuses on the Magical Friendship between Superman and Batman. You’ll get to see the Justice League multiverse explode in this one, which gives us a chance to see the Batman and Robin from the 60’s TV show, as well as the Batmobile. Batman and Superman will also have to go to counseling to improve their friendship. This special is the perfect kick-off for the hilarious Season 8 that follows.


This year, since Zeb Wells has moved on as an Executive Producer of Crackle’s Supermansion, which debuts on Thursday, October 8, there is a new director in town at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios for Season 8 of Robot Chicken. His name is Tom Sheppard. He has some large shoes to fill, but we’re certain he’s up to the challenge. No pressure!

Would you like to meet Tom Sheppard? ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell interviewed Tom and Executive Producer Matthew Senreich at SDCC 2015 for the Season 8 launch as well as the DVD release of Robot Chicken Season 7. After that interview, you’ll get to see Marc’s interview with 2 writers from RCDC3: Magical Friendship, Kevin Shinick and Tom Root. These videos are interlaced with previews from RCDC3: Magical Friendship, so please enjoy responsibly.

ToonBarn will be catching up with our friends from Robot Chicken at New York Comic Con this weekend. Look for more interviews coming within the next few weeks.

I am a Big Fan of all types of animation. Like a lot of things, the cream always rises to the top. My favorites have included Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels, anything Pixar, Phineas and Ferb, Voltron Legendary Defender, and the DC/WB Animated Films. I have a lot of Old School favorites as well, such as Star Blazers, Voltron, Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, and Scooby Doo.
