The undead get animated when Adult Swim’s The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who’s Walking arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on March 27. From Robot Chicken creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich and their Stoopid Buddy Stoodios partners, John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner, along with The Walking Dead creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman and showrunner and executive producer Scott M. Gimple, the 22-minute special is a hilariously brilliant parody joining together two fan-favorite television series.

The all-star lineup in this horrifyingly hilarious special includes The Walking Dead cast Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yeun, Sarah Wayne Callies as well as Nerdist Industries CEO and Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick and Breckin Meyer (Rat Race, Road Trip).

If you liked the previous seasons of “Robot Chicken” then you’ll almost certainly enjoy the new ‘Walking Dead Special’. There are genuine belly laughs here for sci-fi fans & pop culture aficionados. If you’ve never seen ‘Robot Chicken’ and love ‘The Walking Dead’, then I’d advise you to check this out as you will not regret it one bit.

This show is fun. It’s like watching a mad man play with his old childhood toys. The special opens in the world of TWD with a future museum offering up various artifacts of the time period that the show takes place, a number of these items hilarious. As they move further into the museum they come to the only zombie in the world left and caged which doesn’t sit well with one guests. The old man upset turns out to be Carl Rimes from the series who begins telling one young man about what really happened back then.

Final Thoughts

Overall, it’s an excellent show with no meaning or purpose to it whatsoever. I am glad for shows like this that entertains the masses, which is exactly what ‘Robot Chicken’ does with the addition of ‘The Walking Dead’ franchise. I love my serious shows, but every so often is great to have shows like ‘Robot Chicken’ in my rotation with my favorite TV show.
