Tom Sheppard, Tom Root and Matt Senreich talk next season of "Robot Chicken" and their hopeful purchases at Comic-Con 2017.
There is no pop culture or political figure safe from the claymation-style harpooning of Adult Swim’s “Robot Chicken.” For eight seasons the creators of the stop-motion sketch show have poked fun at “Star Wars,” “Mad Men,” “My Little Pony” and even former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
And as the show readies for its ninth season debut in the fall of 2017, fans are curious to see how the current political climate affected the “Robot Chicken” writers room. We chatted with show creator Matt Senreich, producer Tom Root and writer and director Tom Sheppard at Comic-Con before their big panel presentation and can confirm that, yes, President Trump will appear in the ninth season.
“We have a couple sketches that will involve [President Trump],” Senreich revealed. “One is a horror movie type of thing, and the other is a Willy Wonka type of thing. If that doesn’t spoil things.”
