Robot Chicken Does Castlevania

Seth Green's stop-motion action-figure comedy show attempts to answer the age-old question, "What the hell is with the Belmonts and whips?"

Not much to say here, actually. It's always kind of fun seeing nerds in high places, whether we're talking about Vin Diesel being a huge D&D fan or - in this case - laughing at the fact that the Robot Chicken team has more than a few gamers in it. Y'know, if the FF7 sketch and Grand Theft Mario from way back when hadn't tipped you off already.

This time, they're tackling beloved vampire-hunting franchise Castlevania. Rather than mock Simon Belmont for his ridiculously tiny shorts that even Daisy Duke would think twice before wearing, they poke fun at another interesting aspect of Castlevania: the Belmont clan's fondness for whips.

Seriously, what is it with the whips? You'd think that if you were going to take down evil minions of an undead vampire lord, you'd bring a good sword with you or something. But no, the Belmonts have to be different. They have to get in touch with their wild sides and use whips. That's just inconsiderate, really.

I'm hoping they'll get around to tackling Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney someday. That's just ripe with potential.

Vin Diesel's a huge D&D fan? When did this happen?

Hehe. I can always rely on Robot CHicken for a laugh.

Bwahaha! That was absolutely hilarious!
"I don't think my hand works now..."
Ahh...just the thing I needed to see to end my lunch break.
Awesome.

holy shit dude

that made me laugh so much

I still like the FF7 skit the most. But this one was also great.

did seth green do the voice of werewolf in the blue shirt?

Awesome

Holy shit I can't stop laughing now.

Oh god that was hilarious!

I love that.

Oh Robot Chicken. You never cease to amaze me.

Well, it's nice to see the bastard hobby of the Nintendo generation I've heard so many elders speak disparaginyl about come crawling out of the basement and into the light.

Nice to see, really. Something as mainstream as robot chicken, skewering an old fan favourite! It makes sense, really - they can only plumb the cartoons of the 80s for so long before they run out of good witticisms.

Plus, this is typoically funny stuff. "Could be a fetish?" As we say in the less civil parts of the internet, "I lol'd".

Supposedly it's how he got into acting... playing around in character as his D&D dude. *shrug* That's what I heard anyways.

Anyways Robot Chicken pwns faces.

The writers for that show are so freaking nerdy. I love it!

Lol that was great.

Oh you hit the tip

Not the whip

"What kind of a sadist uses a whip?"

That was hilarious.

Oh man, it had so much potential to be great, but no. It didn't make it.

God damn it, better luck next time.

It´s not just an ordinary whip. It´s a chain whip...And thus the Belmont Family takes its first steps into a world of WH40K.

"Don´t you realize how loud that is?"
Hilarious :D

Now this is why I like Alucard. He at least doesn't use a whip at the start.

Although I've still not forgiven you for the Calvin and Hobbes skit.

I loved the Calvin and Hobbes skit. Was definitely one of the most memorable ones I think.

Agreed. All the way from their Star Wars to Mario-GTA parodies.

Robot Chicken is very funny.

Phoenix Wright should make it in someday. The game's funny on its own, imagine being parodied by Roboto Chicken.

Does this mean they got the go for Season 4? Oh gods I want Season 4 DVDs...

I saw this one earlier, and I lol'd.

I wish Robot Chicken would poke fun at video games more often...

"Ah, you hit the tip!"

Cyborg Hen is definitely one of my more favored shows on the Televised Visions.

Oh, wow, looks like Robot Chicken hired some better writers - that was awesome.

Wasn't that long ago I found Robot Chicken, very happy I did.

Aah, I love those guys. Robot Chicken is awesome, as is Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

hahahahaha! awesome, there need to be more video game skits though.

Good old Robot Chicken!!! Brilliant. I can't wait for when they do a third Star Wars DVD.

That was cool! I don't watch it but I'm going to youtube them now.

lol, that was a really good clip. Usually I don't watch any Robot Chicken, I think I'll start today. ^^

So epic.

I did always think a whip was a strange vampire killing weapon.

I'm not much of a Robot Chicken fan, but that was ridicoulously funny.

"What kind of a SATIST uses a whip." I LOL'D
