Get A Taste

I loved my Star Trek Bridge set with the transporter and the dolls with the chokeable parts.

Like a lot of kids, growing up with Star Trek and Star Wars and Super Hero dolls, pretending they were doing super action whatever was a key part of childhood. These days kids don't just play with these dolls, they grow up and make animated shorts with them. The TV show Robot Chicken is based entirely on this idea and after seeing a memorable episode this weekend I decided to post a little about two of my favorites.

The first one is from a series the G4 channel did when they were airing Star Trek reruns. They used the old dolls from the 70's to have Spock act with a hip hop personality bringing the party to the rest of the Star Trek crew. The one where they do a take off on MTV Cribs was the funniest to me

The second one came from Robot Chicken, where Strawberry Shortcake and her crew get lethal after someone stole her friend's "black cherry". A made up character named Bitch Pudding gets the best parts, particularly at the end where she says "Blam! You all get a taste of the Bitch Pudding" and flips everyone off. It's one of the funniest things I've seen in a while though the video doesn't show the full context.
