Studio Behind Robot Chicken Is Going Beyond Stop Motion Animation

Illustration for article titled Studio Behind Robot Chicken Is Going Beyond Stop Motion Animation

Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the creative force behind Robot Chicken, is typically known for its stop-motion animation and pretty much only its stop motion animation. That's what makes the news of their upcoming 15 animated shorts such a shock — so far all have utilized animation styles other than stop motion.

Granted there are only two shorts up at the moment, but they will all be created by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios artists for Adult Swim. The idea is to eventually see if any catch the interest of fans, though for now they're just good fun.

The first short is called "Beach Bros!," and it's a simple short that sees a dolphin encouraging his jellyfish friend to ask out some human babes while they sunbathe on the beach. Most of it is pretty simple, but the ending is really funny (and maybe just a little NSFW).


As for the second, "Father Blast Beats" seems to be about a world overrun by demons where one of humanity's last protector is a man of faith with a fetish for fucking shit up. Ok, that was mostly for alliteration's sake but he does blow away a handful of demons in a pretty artful fashion.

If you're interested, you can keep up with each new short here. New shorts will be added throughout the summer.
