'Robot Chicken: DC Special' [Blu-ray]
(Various, et al / Blu ray / NR / 2012 / Cartoon Network)

Overview: Robot Chicken and DC Comics collide - who will survive with their super-dignities intact? NOBODY! In Robot Chicken's hands, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and even Mr. Banjo could end up dead or naked or both or neither!

Blu ray Verdict: Those who know, simply put, know that 'Robot Chicken' is not for all tastes. Definitely not for children, well, young-young kids, it is a humor that you either roll with or you pass on minutes after putting it on.

That said, this member of the stop-motion Adult Swim satire series has enjoyed huge success through the years. But BE WARNED ... the running time for this Blu rau is ONLY 23 minutes!! Sure it comes with over two hours of bonus features, but some people are saying that as soon as they've sat down, got settled and had a swig of beer it's all over!

Which, I agree, but it takes a LOT of work to get these stop-motion "films" put together and so for your purchase fee paid, well, the two plus hours of bonus features should be enough for you.

Ergo, those bonus features also lovingly, and happily include all of the previous DC Comics character segments from past seasons of 'Robot Chicken.' But your specific bonus features here are such things as two (2) different audio commentaries, a "pop-up" fun-facts version of the DC Special, and amongst other things, a Behind-The-Scenes featurette.

In closing, and in MHO, 'Robot Chicken DC Comics Special' is a decent 'Robot Chicken' spoof, of that have no doubt. As for my favorite moments in those precious 23 mins, well, I have two: The constant "in-joke" with Bane reappearing to 'break the Bat' in multiple Batman skits is priceless. And so is Aquaman's early trials and tribulations with his fellow Justice League'rs! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs. Bonus features on this Blu-ray™ include:

The Making of the RCDC Special
Writers' Commentary
Actors' Commentary with Alfred Molina
DC Entertainment: The Tour with Seth Green
RCDC's Aquaman Origin Story
Chicken Nuggets (Sketch-by-Sketch Commentary)
Stoopid Alter Egos (Costume Wrap Party)
