The 40th Annual Annie Awards took place Saturday, February 2, at Royce Hall. RCDC Creator and Executive Producer, Seth Green, presented with Co-Producer and Writer, Kevin Shinick, As head writer and producer for Cartoon Network’s MAD, Kevin was also nominated in the same category for “FrankenWinnie”, also animated by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios.

In addition to MAD, other nominees included, Archer, Bob’s Burgers, Motorcity, and South Park. Stoopid Buddy Stoodios is honored to be nominated in a category with such great animated TV shows, and would like to thank ASIF for such a prestigious award. As Seth said to the animation community, in his acceptance speech, “Let’s just keep making awesome stuff!”

We couldn’t agree with you more!

Check out Seth and Kevin on the Red Carpet at the Annies:

 

What’s cooler than six seasons of spontaneously exploding heads, autoerotic asphyxiation, ruthless stabbings, ponies setting children on fire, and pretty much all things related to poor taste and the absurd?  Well, seven seasons of Robot Chicken-style debauchery, of course!

We have great news to report from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios – our very own Emmy Award winning Robot Chicken has been given the green light by Adult Swim to start work on season seven of the network’s top-rated original series.

Fresh off the heat of winning an Annie Award for the acclaimed DC Comics Special and the premiere of a blood-splattered season six ender that featured a zombie Joss Whedon and the Robot Chicken Nerd finally (and rather quickly) losing his virginity, RC co-creators Seth Green and Matt Senreich are excited to start work on what will be the most balls-out season yet.  With this next season being the second to come from the freshly minted Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, Green and Senreich will be joined by fellow Executive Producers John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner. Keeping in sync with the pulse of our sixth season, we also have many returning collaborators, such as Supervising Producer, Janet Dimon and Co Producer, Ethan Marak.

Season 7 of Robot Chicken is just around the corner and is set to air late 2013.  Keep up with the League of Buddies Blog for updates throughout each phase of production!  That’s right – stay tuned and you’ll have access to tons of behind the scenes content that will keep you tied over until Robot Chicken returns to completely take a dump on every topic you ever thought could remain sacred or untouched!  In addition to RC updates, we’ll keep you updated on a ton of other awesome projects brewing over here at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios.  You won’t want to miss it, so stick around!

Don’t let the fart jokes fool you; Robot Chicken is a work of art, and the fact that we’re in Juxtapoz proves it! The art and culture magazine recently visited Stoopid Buddy Stoodios for their special Adult Swim issue. Juxtapoz was given an exclusive look behind our doors, and the resulting feature was a great way to introduce our new studio to the public.

The 12 page article premiered the first pictures of our new  facility alongside an exclusive interview with Seth Green, Matt Senreich, and head of character fabrication Tennessee Reid Norton. Seth and Matt discussed the evolution of the show’s writing, and how we continue to push the limits of the stop-motion animation while working within the constraints of a cable TV budget and schedule. Tennessee revealed our puppet-making process, which has been perfected over six (and counting) seasons.

The magazine is on sale now. Check out a sneak peak by following the link below.

What happens when you mix the cult status of Robot Chicken and legendary character mythology from DC Comics? A ratings explosion!

In all seriousness, we couldn’t be more excited to see that so many people tuned in to our labor of love that aired September 9th to incredible ratings that ranked it #1 in its time period among adults ages 18-24.

Stoopid Buddy Stoodios is thrilled to have the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special as one of its first productions from the new studio and we can’t wait to show you all what’s to come down the road. Stay tuned; more updates will be coming your way.

And again, thanks for tuning in, guys! We want to give each of you a nice, warm, extended hug.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but it also wasn’t built in less than three months!  Not to brag or anything, but in that amount of time, our amazing team has transformed two vacant office buildings into California’s largest and most cutting edge animation studio! Complete with a custom built arcade featuring all of your favorite classic games and a stairway lined with a Hot Wheels track Jason Statham could only dream of – this place truly needs to be seen to be believed.

We pride ourselves on providing comfortable workspaces that encourage all types of creative and fun animation-related shenanigans, all while maximizing the efficiency of our artists.  Even as we progress, we still take pride in our roots by paying homage to our humble beginnings. Just inside our studio, we have parked the original Buddy Systems Studios Winnebago – that’s right, you guessed it – where all the magic first started! The ‘Bagos are now the focal point for festive gatherings, weekly screenings, crew events, relaxation and the occasional ukulele lesson put on by our awesome puppet department.

With over 30,000 square feet and packed with state-of-the-art equipment, Stoopid Buddy Stoodios is ready to animate our way into your living rooms, computers, and most importantly, your hearts. (Awww) But seriously, we welcome you to check out our site and keep up with everything happening at the studio. Be our buddy, we’d love to be yours!
