  • I'm so happy the guys at Archie comics allowed the segment back in this episode.

    Now that this episode is fully uncut for good, maybe now Adult Swim will finally allow this episode on iTunes, I hope. Cause the Archie sketch has removed from the DVDs just like some segments from season 1, but on iTunes they are uncut. I'm a massive Robot Chicken fan and I have all the episodes but this one, cause iTunes didn't add it yet. With out this episode there's a hole in season 2. Also when a segment is cut it's like there's a hole in the episode as well, cause in season 1 two segments were cut. Beavis and Butt-head Join Teen Titans from "Vegetable Fun Fest" and Last Super Food Fight from "The Black Cherry". But they were uncut on iTunes, so now they can finally add this episode as well. But it may take a while, I think.moreless
  • Well, I thought the episode was really good. I also enjoyed the episode's Buck Rogers skit. Well, it was good until they removed the Archie skit from the uncensored DVD version. That really pisses me off. But anyway: Half credit and an average rating.moreless

    An insensitive dad decides to go to the bathroom after his daughter's fish dies and she flushes it down the toilet. A knight, reading a roadmap, becomes lost. The Beastmaster becomes a hit musical, starring David Hasselhoff as the titiular character. Lance Armstrong becomes super president of France. Buck Rogers is mistaken because other aliens keep calling him "F*ck Rogers." After a wedding, the groom dies of old age. An ex-husband cuts his head off with a saw for Christmas, scaring his ex-wife and his daughter. And it all leads up to Archie and the gang, learning that nobody cheats death for long.moreless
  • Don't forget your Haikus on Death.

    Another funny episode of Robot Chicken. The Archie and Friends skit was the funniest part. Archie and the gang try to escape death, but learn that the only way to save yourself from the Grim Reaper is money. The funniest part was when Betty got hit by a car and the newspaper said Rich girl gets poor girl's blood on dress. I have a cousin who loves Archie and Friends comics (at least I think she's still into them) and I bet she'll love this skit. Thank you for making this hilarious skit Seth Green. You're a very funny man.moreless
  • Another excellent episode compared with other TV but far not the best they've ever done.

    I love the beginning of this episode with the flushing of the family fish quickly followed by the father announcing he needs to lay one out. The rest of the episode basically only has to sketches: 'Andrew L W's Beast Master' and an Archie parody of Final Destination. Beast Master was truly awful - not funny, badly written and just pissed me off - adding to my irritation as it takes 3 minutes or so out of an already short show. I'm from the UK and we don't really have a clue what Archie/Archy(?) is so that went straight over my head but the mock paraody of the stupid coincidences in FD movies is funny. Good episode, but definately pulled down by Beast Master.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • In the re-aired version of the episode, the Britney Spears/Citizen Kane sketch, which replaced the Archie sketch, was originally a deleted scene in the Season One DVD.

    • The Archie Comics/War of the Worlds parody segment was removed on the Season 2 DVD version of this episode due to copyright issues.

    • This episode contains a rare instance where stop motion animation is not used. At the start of the Final Destination sketch, Archie's vision of the bus turning over appears to use a forced perspective shot. The foreground bus driver is a stationary plane while the Archie character's themselves are tumbled around (Like a rock tumbler.) in a separate frame behind the driver. Behind that, a background of the street rotates in the opposite direction to trick the eye into giving the entire shot the appearance of circular rotation. This is shot in real time, as opposed to the stop motion animation normally used.

      Archie: thinking about itWell... I don't know...
      Betty crosses the street and gets hit by a bus. Veronica looks hopeful at Archie

    • Betty: Death? He sounds dreamy!
      Reggie: Blondes are dumb whores!

    • Dolores' Husband: Dolores, how could you?

  • NOTES (3)

    • The Stoop!d Monkey has been impaled on a chainsaw.

    • This episode, after being removed from the rerun cycle, has been put back into said cycle on May 15, 2008, but the staff decided to rename it "Blankets in a Pig", and replace the Archie Sketch with a Britney Spears parody of Citizen Kane.

    • This episode seems to have been removed from the rerun cycle. Adult Swim has skipped over it three times in the series rotation. It finally aired again on Sept. 16, 2009, and again on Dec. 9, 2009, So it seems to have permanently returned to rotation. The reason why it was initially removed was because the DMCA had removed it because the Archie skit contained copyright infringement. That is why they edited the episode on the Season 2 DVD release.


    • Archie's Final Destination
      The last sketch featured characters from Archie Comics, including:
      Archibald "Archie" Andrews
      Elizabeth "Betty" Cooper
      Veronica Lodge
      Forsythe Pendleton "Jughead" Jones, III
      Reginald "Reggie" Mantle
      Malcolm "Moose" Mason
      Miss Geraldine Grundy
      Chuck Clayton

      The sketch's plot is mainly a parody of the film series Final Destination. The aliens in the sketch parody the Sci-fi remake of War of the Worlds. In addition, jokes are made within the sketch noting flaws of the Archie comics.

    • Andrew Lloyd Weber's 'The Beastmaster'
      The sketch is a parody of the 1982 action film, The Beastmaster.

      Andrew Lloyd Weber is an English composer of musical theatre, and the title of the sketch parodies the recent 2004 release of the musical Andrew Lloyd Weber's The Phantom of the Opera.
