The trailer for mc chris’ long anticipated and uncannily titled “the mc chris cartoon” has arrived, and although short, it’s fan-fucking-tastic. This is partially due to the fact that the animation is done by Titmouse, who do The Venture Bros, among other cartoons, and also partially due to mc chris being awesome. I’m not really one for internet petitions, but if this thing doesn’t get on Adult Swim, it’ll be a crime. Hell, even Dan Aykroyd thinks Adult Swim should air it, and he’s crazier than shit.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
