Robot Chicken

Has any of you watched this before?
It says here that Jason will do a voice cameo in the ninth season.
The show is famous for the wide variety of talent it pulls in for voice cameos and this season's list includes Sherilyn Fenn from “Twin Peaks,” Christina Hendricks, the cast of “13 Reasons Why,” Parker Posey, Luke Evans and Jason Isaacs.

OK, here’s a little more on Robot Chicken (RC)...and apologies in advance for the roller coaster ride:

The show airs as part of Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim” (AS) lineup (from 8:00 PM-6:00 AM). While many AS shows are 30-minute shows, airing seven (7) nights a week, RC only airs for 15 minutes (but two episodes nightly), FOUR (4) nights: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. The times are 12:30 AM and 12:45 AM, with the episodes repeated at 3:30 & 3:45 AM.

Currently, according to www.tvguide.com, the Sixth Season (S6) eps are airing; up this week will be Episodes 11-19 (skipping a Christmas ep), from January 15-18.

I next went to www.imdb.com, for the full list of eps and found that, after 1/18, there are two (2) more S6 eps, then 20 each in S7 and S8. Jason’s ep, “Gimme That Chocolate Milk”, is #14 in S9, and—based on the programming schedule—SHOULD air in early March...possibly between March 5-8 (if my calculations are correct), although any other skipped episodes could make it earlier. (IOW, CYLL; I know I’ll be revisiting TV Guide’s website periodically to check.)

You’re welcome, and I’ll try to get back here more often. 😇 I hope my info wasn’t too confusing.

(I’m also going to try to watch for Jason on Robot Chicken. I haven’t checked, but it wouldn’t surprise me to find out there’s an app somewhere out there, for our non-US members.)

Thanks for all the research. Maybe it will be available to the rest of the world after a while. :D

I’ve been double-checking upcoming eps (to make sure that Cartoon Network/Adult Swim hasn’t accelerated the dates I projected), and just just discovered that CN is, in fact, updating their programming as follows:

Beginning Tuesday, February 5, Robot Chicken will ONLY air at 12:30 and 12:45 AM EST (still Monday night/Tuesday morning through Thursday night/Friday morning, but 30 minutes later than the current “early” airing), and there will be NO REPEATS!! (Sorry, Night Owls! 😉) This means there will still be eight (8) eps aired each week.

Also, the last date that currently has a “plot summary” is Friday, February 1 (Season 7, Eps 13 and 14; www.tvguide.com has a generic show summary for the next week).

Since Jason voiced Season 9, Ep 14 (and with six more S7 eps, and then 20 S8 eps, before S9 starts), that would now (tentatively!) indicate an air date/time of Friday, March 8 at 12:45 AM for Jason’s ep (titled, ”Gimme That Chocolate Milk”)...but CYLL.

The only way I will be able to see this is if I set the DVR to tape it. Even then I can only set it when the guide shows the episode unless I do a tape all for the series. Ugh. But I would not have any chance at all if you didn't figure this out - thanks Hot Wheels!

You’re welcome, Marie. I’ve got “calendar alerts” to remind me to check the listings. (Good thing, too, since CN/AS decided to throw viewers a curve ball!)

What can I say? My late father (we lost him to cancer in 2005) was a police officer/detective for 26 years, and my mother loves mystery novels! 😉😁

That’s me...a big 🥜! 🤪

FWIW, the 🤡 🤡 at CN/AS can’t seem to decide when Robot Chicken’s hours will change: I just looked, and now, the date for switching over to 12:30/12:45 won’t happen for another week (starting Tuesday, 2/12/19, not 2/5/19).

It’s too early for me to re-calculate the exact date/time for Jason’s ep; I’ll try later. In the meantime, here’s another tidbit for everyone: In the 15-minute ep, Jason will voice more than one character...so I plan to keep my eyes and ears wide open!
