Season 6 opens with the G.I. Joe taking on a challenge a little too big for them and Wiley E. Coyote finally outsmarts the Road Runner. The craziness continues with the Alvin and the Chipmunks spend a little time with their groupies; the Scooby Doo gang gets a new member; the Fast and Furious sequel gets new wheels, Captain Planet returns; He-Man and Skeletor's battle it out; Dora the Explorer turns 15; and Jason Voorhees and Michael Meyers become pals.

Nothing is ever off limits to the Robot Chicken crew and that is especially true for the Robot Chicken: Season Six DVD! I've only caught a few segments of the series when I'm flipping through channels late at night, so this is the first time I watched a complete 11-minute episode. For those who have watched the series on the Cartoon Network, the bad language is bleeped out, but not on the DVD, as the profanity is all there. Robot Chicken is not for children, it is made for adults only. Overall, I laughed all the way through each episode and even at the many extras. I recommend Robot Chicken: Season Six to fans of the series. It would make a great Christmas present for someone.
