New York Comic Con started off with an Earth-shattering KABOOM of SuperMansion awesomeness! Not only did Bryan Cranston, Matt Senreich, Zeb Wells, Breckin Meyer, and Gary Anthony Williams storm the Javits center for a panel to remember, but six (count ’em, SIX) episodes of SuperMansion dropped to watch on Sony Crackle on the very same day!

But it didn’t end there… because fresh off their Summer Vacation Special, the newest holiday adventure for the League of Freedom was announced, complete with premiere date!

On November 15, catch the SuperMansion Thanksgiving special, A Prayer for Mr. T. Turkey, super powers, and a butt-load of growth hormones will make this year’s Black Friday feel like a skip down candy cane lane.

Bryan Cranston, superheroes, vegan pizza rolls… SuperMansion really DOES have it all! So when CBS asks to come by and take a peek at it all, could we really refuse??

Whenever we’re asked about the history of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, it really is a “Where do we even begin?” kinda situation. LUCKILY, we love telling the story. And you can learn it all in the super cool piece from CBS down below. Plus, you get some behind the scenes looks at Season 3 of SuperMansion. Because really, it would just feel wrong to keep all the stop-motion awesomeness to ourselves.

And of course, if you still haven’t taken the plunge, you can check out all of SuperMansion streaming RIGHT NOW for free on Sony Crackle!

At Stoopid Buddy’s School for Stop-Motion and Awesomeness (it’s a working title…) we want to train you to become the best stop-motion animator to soon rock the industry!
 
That’s right, the Stop-Motion Character Animation classes are BACK at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, and we’re now taking applicants! So if you’re looking to animate like the best of ’em, now’s your chance! This is the perfect opportunity for those looking to start their journey on the path to becoming a stop-motion master.

It’s a Christmas miracle… with a nine month delay: Robot Chicken took home yet another Emmy!
 
Freshly Baked: The Robot Chicken Santa Claus Pot Cookie Freakout Special: Special Edition (it was the shortest name we could come up with!) is the latest special to come in a long line of Robot Chicken specials that have graced the airwaves of Adult Swim.


This past weekend, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences bestowed upon the crew the prestigious Emmy Award for Best Short Form Animated Program for our latest Christmas spectacular.

So we FINALLY get to put away the tree, and box up the ornaments… well, for three months anyway. Then they’re BACK OUT!
 
Seriously, though… one final congrats to the crew whose talent without we wouldn’t have achieved this, and the fans who keep tuning in after all these years. We couldn’t have done this without you.

The editor. One whose role without, your television and movie viewing experiences would be a hodge-podge of colors, sounds, and absolutely zero story. At the Stoodio, all of our editors shine among the best, and Phil Davis is no exception.
 
Bringing order to the insanity of Hot Streets SOUNDS IMPOSSIBLE… but if there’s someone who can tackle that task, it’s Phil. And his amazing editing abilities are why he’s going to be carrying the Spirit of the Stoodio totem for the month of August. Phil, you deserve it. Along with this craftily written poem from our elite league of poem-smiths.
 
The Buddy we herald and about which we rhyme,
Can oft be seen putting in extra time.
They always make us smile, they are peachy-keen,
And they’ve even been known to craft a clay figurine.
 
Between dogs and cats, this buddy’s feline inclined.
And he travels to sunny Costa Rica to unwind.
We hope to give some credit to the editor you may know,
Let’s cheer for Phil Davis, this month’s Spirit of the Stoodio!

Without someone in IT making sure all of our computers are running at their computey-est, we’d just be a bunch of animators, producers, directors, and whatnot playing with puppets. And while that all sounds awesome, it’s not very lucrative.
 
That’s where Chester Lee comes in! Whenever we’re about to throw in the towel and spend $6,000 on a shiny new computer, Chester kicks down the door, makes things happen, and we get to save six G’s. He makes our hearts flutter. Because of his tireless efforts, Chester gets to walk away as the Stoopid Buddy Spirit of the Stoodio for July.
 
And now… the customary poem:
 
No orator, no speaker could ever debate,
The fact that this Buddy is truly first-rate!
Mr. Foodie, Mr. Fixit, The wind beneath our SolarWinds,
So many monikers we would never rescind.
 
To be sure it takes a lot of cunning,
To keep all our technology running.
So, let’s give a big thank you, a hurrah filled with glee!
To our Spirit of the Stoodio: Well done, Chester Lee!
