Grab Your Stop-Motion Crossbows! Robot Chicken Is Doing a Walking Dead Special

The very animated Robert Kirkman.

Robot Chicken is going to create a stop-motion zombie apocalypse with their upcoming special, Robot Chicken: The Walking Dead on Adult Swim. The Walking Dead is just the latest franchise to get the claymation treatment after the likes of Star Wars and the DC Comics universe, but this won’t be its first. Back in 2012, Robot Chicken did a three-minute sketch called “Zombie Love” — a send-up of the zombie show that included an appearance from comics creator Robert Kirkman himself. Kirkman will be back, along with showrunner Scott M. Gimple, to work on the special alongside Seth Green and Matthew Senreich. Adult Swim hasn’t announced a date yet for the special, so until then chew on the sketch:
