On DVD and Blu Ray today is the sixth season of the Emmy Award-winning ROBOT CHICKEN. The stop-motion parodies are a hit on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim but even better in high definition and without commercial breaks! Created by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, Robot Chicken has only gotten better with time, taking bigger creative risks and using more and more of the actual toys we’ve all grown up with.
In addition to all the toy parodies, Season 6 has a plethora of special guest voice talent including Kat Dennings, Sam Elliot, Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Stewart, Stanley Tucci, Olivia Wilde and a whole lot more.
The entire season adds up to approximately 220 minutes but the beauty of home video is the bonus material and there is a lot of it... HOURS even.
