Robot Chicken Christmas Special

A Robot Chicken Christmas, with Seth Green


Seth Green offers  up a peak at this Sunday’s Robot Chicken Christmas Special, and the perks of playing with toys.


Here’s the scoop from the interview with Seth Green, by Mandi Bierly of Inside TV on December 13th, 2012.




You’ve got another Robot Chicken Christmas special this Sunday. What can we expect from that?

Getting to make a TV show and having as little actual network pressure on you as we do, is one of the more satisfying creative experiences. We wanted to make a Christmas sketch about our Nerd character, kind of a Grinch parody, and we got to exploit all of our deepest, nerdiest things. My partner Matt [Senreich] and I actually flew to New York to shoot a live-action video clip with G.I. Joe comic author Larry Hama. [Laughs] It’s just so silly. If you had told 8-year-old me, when I was sitting there reading these comics, voraciously consuming all G.I. Joe material and playing with those action figures, that one day I would be hanging out in the apartment of one of the creators talking about nerdy stuff, I would not have believed you. That we can, like, trade emails with each other now, that doesn’t seem real.

This is a really funny episode. Henry Winkler’s in it, Skeet Ulrich, Michaela Watkins. Lucas Grabeel sings for us, and he was amazing. Elizabeth Banks plays Mrs. Claus. Seth MacFarlane has played Santa Claus for us since we started the show, and so I keep pressuring him into it. [Laughs] We pose the question, if Jason Bourne is impossible to find, how does he get Christmas presents? Stuff like that, that’s what we think about. [Laughs]




The Robot Chicken Christmas Special airs on Cartoon Network at Midnight, during Adult Swim; Sunday December 16th, 2012.
