The “Robot Chicken”: Christmas Specials collection is geared more toward casual fans as, from what I can tell, everything on this disc was previously released in some fashion in the season sets, features included. The DVD itself has OK audio and video while the commentaries are at least entertaining.

PLOT SUMMARY

HO! HO! HO! Got the Christmas blues? This DVD is brimming with the kind of holiday spirit sure to recharge your jingle bells!

Once the screaming kids have gone to bed and Granddad’s sleeping off his seventh whiskey sour, pop in this collection of the award winning “Robot Chicken” yuletide specials and feel your jolly meter rising! Witness Extreme Santa Clause fistfights! Exploding reindeer! And exponentially increasing elf body count!

Quick Hit Review: This is a cash-grab by Warner putting together their previously released Christmas Specials onto one disc so this is less for fans and more toward casual viewers. Still, the specials are really funny and often clever.

Included in this collection are:
– Robot Chicken’s Christmas Special (2005)

– Robot Chicken’s Half-Assed Christmas Special (2007)

– Robot Chicken’s Full-Assed Christmas Special (2009)

– Robot Chicken’s DP Christmas Special (2010)

– Robot Chicken’s ATM Christmas Special (2012)

– Robot Chicken’s Born Again Virgin Christmas Special (2013)

SPECIAL FEATURES – 2.0/5

Commentaries are available on ‘Robot Chicken’s Half-Assed Christmas Special’ with Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, Mike Fasolo, Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root; ‘Robot Chicken’s Full-Assed Christmas Special’ with Green, Senreich, Erika Christensen, Root and Zeb Wells; ‘Robot Chicken’s DP Christmas Special’ with Green, Senreich, Sasha Barrese, Macaulay Culkin, Fasolo and Clare Grant; and ‘Robot Chicken’s ATM Christmas Special’ with Green, Senreich, Rachel Bloom, Lucas Grabeel, Root and Michaela Watkins

The disc includes a collection of Deleted Scenes (1:19), Deleted Animatics (3:35) and Promos (0:49).

VIDEO – 3.5/5 | AUDIO – 3.5/5

The early episodes are presented in their originally televised 1.33 full frame aspect ratio while later ones are in 1.78 widescreen. Colors tend to be bright and there’s minimal artifacting.

The Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks sound decent providing for clear dialogue and audio effects.

OVERALL – 2.5/5

Overall, the “Robot Chicken”: Christmas Specials collection is geared more toward casual fans as, from what I can tell, everything on this disc was previously released in some fashion in the season sets, features included. The DVD itself has OK audio and video while the commentaries are at least entertaining.
