Two Quick Robot Chicken Moments

Warrior need foodAdult Swim's Robot Chicken skewered two more video games in this week's episode, although the twistings of Donkey Kong and Gauntlet are quick and to the point as opposed to the usual elaborate sketches we've seen in previous episodes.  Ever wonder what's inside those barrels that Donkey Kong lobs at Mario?  Does the "Warrior need food badly" quote ever become stale?  Watch this pair of clips (United States readers only, I'm afraid) and find out.

Personally I've found Robot Chicken not quite as funny this season as it used to be, but there's still flashes of greatness here and there. It's as if the show is leaning too heavily on excessive gore and toilet humor without including the clever satire and parody elements needed to really nail the punchlines..
