Joss Whedon to guest in Robot Chicken again. Seth Green announced that the first episode of the next season will feature Joss and Ron Moore.

Haha..I'm the one who asked Seth about Joss Whedon. I'm glad I did, now. ^_^
Grrr. Arrgh.
I think I may have to actually start watching this. I keep meaning to, but haven't been able to fit it in.
The trick is to just buy it on DVD; you can usually get it pretty cheap used, and that way, you don't have to deal with the commercials. Plus, face it: one 15-minute episode is not enough.
I put it in my Netflix queue. Thanks, BoB.
Will definitely have to see (umm.. hear) Joss on the program.

What would be amazing is if Seth dedicated one episode of Robot Chicken and did a Buffy spoof - something similar to how Family Guy did Blue Harvest.
There is one bit of Buffy spoof--Episode 4, called "Plastic Buffet." It involves Cabbage Patch kids...that's all I'll say.
Joss has been on there before; he spoofs his "Grr, Argh" on Episode 43, called "Rabbits on a Roller Coaster."

But yes, that would be fantastic. A whole BtVS spoof. One can dream.

On a side note, I must add that one of my all-time favorite sketches is "The Diary of Anne Frank" starring Hillary Duff. It's on Episode 11, "Toy Meets Girl."
Thanks BoB - appreciated it! A buddy of mine has the sets - so now I'll know which ones to watch (if not all of them!).
Nick, you realize Robot Chicken dedicated a whole episode to Star Wars spoofs 3 months before the Family Guy spoof episode, right?

Also, *cough* youtube.
I love this show. My son HATES that I love this show. Apparently, it's against the rules for a mother and her 15 year old son to like the same thing. Yet one more way to ruin his life. Hee.
I wish the Robot Chicken DVD came with closed captioning- it's really annoying not to be able to appreciate every joke.

Actually, last week I was making my 16 year old nephew and his friend a sandwich, I asked if they wanted mayo and his buddy snickered and said only if it was unicorn mayonnaise.
You should have seen the look on his face when I smiled and sweetly responded "Well YOU look like you enjoy rubbing the unicorn's horn. But I'm fresh out." Classic.

Chalk one up for the cool aunty! (Who, in keeping score, actually just lost all credibility. Damn.)
Nah, keeping score is totally legit. Anyway, missb, that comment counts for like 50 points, because I'm sure he's scarred for life.

I didn't even know about it until my older brother moved back in for a while. We were at the video store, and it was like $15 used. He made me buy it, and then I watched the first sketch--"Real World, Metropolis." I snorted Dr. Pepper out my nose.
Thus, a love was born.

Now, my friends--and the rest of my family--call me a total dork for liking this show, but the guys I've dated have always loved the fact that I appreciate this humor.
...I'm never getting married at this rate...

ETA: a friend of mine is an elementary school teacher, and one day she made one of her students write a paragraph apologizing for disrupting the class. A few minutes later, from the back of the room, the student asks, "how do you spell douchebag?"

Now that's a kid who watches Robot Chicken. The beautiful thing? Not another student batted an eye.

Stoopid monkey.

(Not a comment about you Mirage...)

So true. I love this show to bits. Being a UK viewer means I'm mostly doing it by DVD (although other methods are sometimes used by my viewing companion: I excuse myself for joining in by knowing I'm always buying the DVDs). Very nice to know there's more on the way. And with added Jossy-goodness, too.
