|Aquaman finally came to my review! (See back issues... I mean my old reviews to read my pleas).|
The stop motion animation is great with some really smooth animations and also some clever ones like how they make them talk by using pieces of paper with mouths drawn on them. Sure it can be a little cheesy to some but I find it really charming and smart. The toys... I mean the action figures they used (it is the DC Comics special after all so it's action figures) are very awesome but it's such a shame they had to break them out from their original packaging... Eh that was a terrible joke but alas the figures do look awesome and they use actual ones as opposed to home made ones and I just want to go out and buy some of them. If you are fans of Family Guy or American Dad (or one of those rare fans of Cleveland Show) you will be very familiar with the voice cast but for those who aren't I wouldn't worry too much about it. The voice work surprisingly matches up with the characters really well and does make the characters seem very exaggerated but in a fun way.
Overall I really did enjoy this special and it is has some of Robot Chickens best work to date. Although if you are expecting a serious comedy or a fan of Robot Chicken but are unfamiller with DC's characters I would stay clear away from this. Good stuff.
