‘Robot Chicken DC Comics Special Part III: Magic Friendship’ the Interviews

GameStop, Inc.

Robot Chicken 60s BatmanRobot Chicken and DC Entertainment join forces for the third installment of  of the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special, Magic Friendship. There is “super-dickery” involved as Superman (Breckin Meyer) and Batman (Seth Green) out showboat each other in the ultimate pissing contest, often at the expense of Aquaman.

“The DC characters aren’t breakable. They have survived a few adaptations, they can survive a few jokes…I think it’s really easy to do that and it’s fun. People have perceptions of the character and they are so elastic that you can have this vast interpretation of Aquaman. I think a lot of people went away liking Aquaman because in the first special he did kind of save the day,” said Chief Creative Officer at DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns.

The ball was rolling with the seal of approval from Johnny DC, that Robot Chicken could rule the roost in this spoof and nothing is better than acclaimed British actor, Alfred Molina, voicing Lex Luthor and an outstanding musical number with his band Sex Luthor. Even the villian of Composite Superman will have everyone rolling as to the ridiculousness of the character in this new special.

“In the second season of Robot Chicken we were sent a pack from DC Direct of all the figures in that series one of them was Composite Superman and I had seen that character in comics and just thought, ‘That’s the dumbest character in comics,’ I pulled out the toy and set it in the center of our table and said, ‘This guy…why would an alien come here and say, ‘I’ve taken the form of the nations two greatest superheroes, only one of which has super powers,’ so what does that mean? That this other side is just wholly fallible? And that character was actually the inspiration for Christmas hero, Composite Santa Claus,” said Green, the co-creator of the series.

Never to be outdone by their live action series on the CW Network, Robot Chicken has their own “Flash of Two Worlds” moment as Superman and Batman run on the Cosmic Treadmill in order to open up portals throughout the multiverse, sucking in the cast of the classic 1960s Batman series, featuring Burt Ward and Adam West, unfortunately, Yvonne Craig was not apart of the episode before her passing.

“I hadn’t seen any of the Robot Chickens, because I work all the time and when I first saw the script, they did accommodate us with some changes because both Adam (West) and I feel a certain responsibilities to our characters. When I would go out and make personal appearances for the show, for years in costume and later out of costume, people would say things like, ‘Take off your mask,’ and Adam and I treasured the characters so much that when we were in costume, we were in character, we were Batman and Robin.”

We felt a certain responsibility to maintain a standard…back then we were considered wild and crazy constantly being yelled at the censors. When I saw this, this was a mind blower who had never seen anything like this. It shows the brilliance of DC Comics in allowing what could have been another company that could be so rigid and allowing Robot Chicken who’s viewing audience is different from Cartoon Network, yet share the same channel,” said Ward, TV’s Robin.

The series continues to be a staple after a decade on Cartoon Network and there is no stopping it. You can watch the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special III: Magical Friendship on Cartoon Network. Check local listings for times.
