Anyone ever see this show or short on Cartoon Network?
I saw it last week in middle of the night. It had Skeletor, Cobra Commander, Mum-Ra and someone else going to work in a car and they keep getting annoyed by the good guys...
He-Man, Gi-Joe, Lion-O and why can't I remember the 4th bad/good guy who was in it.

Anyway, anyone know what this show/short is? I was dying when Skeletor said "that was a good one..." and everyone was liek "what was?" and they all smelled it fart and he started laughng... it was awesome

That's "Robot Chicken" created by Seth Green. I loved the first episode. It's been kinda downhill from there for me, but there's an occassional funny here and there. You should see the first episode with their Transformers skit. good stuff.

The 4th good guy/bad guy in the skit was Superman and Lex Luthor, respectively. The specific G.I. Joe involved was Flint. I've only seen the first episode and that one, and I've liked them both. Hopefully, I'll remember to watch it this week. Sunday night 11:30 PM EDT.

The show was co-created by the guys at Toyfare magazine as well.

I enjoyed the first episode, but as a whole its pretty uneven and hit and miss. Its just TOO random for me. And I think that's getting to be a problem with a lot of the William Street shows on Adult Swim now, they are trying way too hard at being totally random. Shows like Sealab and Harvey Birdman seem to have played out. Sealab jumped the shark when Hank Murphy left and was replaced with Tornado Shanks.

I think the main reason to watch Adult Swim now is for shows like Fullmetal Alchemist and Ghost In The Shell. This summer they are going to show Shinichiro Watanabe's Samurai Champloo and Satoshi Kon's Paranoia Agent. I think I'll stick with those instead of crap like Squidbillies and Perfect Hair Forever.

It is a hit-and-miss show, but I don't think any more so than any other skit show. The only difference is that the whole show is only 15 min., and each skit is like 20 seconds long, so because of how short everything is it seems more random. Overall, I do like the show though.

You can also watch a replay on Thursday night at 11pm eastern if you missed it on Sunday. I've seen every episode so far and enjoyed them all. Well, I was a little bit disappointed in this past week's because whoever did the voiceover for Leonard Nimoy sounded nothing like him.

But that kid dressed in the Darth Maul outfit is still dead. Ha!

    When Harry Goz, who voiced Captain Murphy, died in 2003, the first episode produced after his death introduced Tornado Shanks, a new regular character voiced by Harry's son, Michael Goz.

Yes thank you Zeruel, I already knew that. My point is that Murphy was the anchor of the show. And once Harry Goz was gone and there was no more Murphy, the show lost it big time, similar to Newsradio after it lost Phil Hartman.

I was pretty OK with the switchover from Murphy to Shanks. Of course then they ruined the show with Sharko. Does anyone enjoy that character?
On the Robot Chicken front, I've caught and enjoyed every episode so far and am still just blown away at the level of celebrity voice talent they are able to nab. Seth Green must have people owing him a lot of favors.
