Coming straight from this year’s New York Toy Fair was the announcement that Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (Robot Chicken, SuperMansion) will partner with toy company Super7 to produce an animated series centered around The Worst line of 3.75″ ReAction figure series. You might remember The Worst from one of our previous posts, covering the series initial launch. While admittedly an interesting lineup of characters, the figures themselves were way too expensive for my meager budget when they came out…a fact which, unfortunately, seems to have remained true. Nevertheless, with an eclectic roster that includes a robotic grim reaper and a snake mummy, The Worst seems like prime material for Stoopid Buddy Stoodios’ offbeat brand of humor.
From the official press release Super7 Founder Brian Flynn said, “We are really excited about the opportunity to share ‘The Worst’ ideas we have ever had with the world. Starting with toys, and now moving into animation, we look forward to having worse ideas with even worse partners to create ‘The Worst’ animation ever.”
Stoopid Buddy Stoodios co-founder John Harvatine IV adds, “Being the nerds of nostalgia that we are, we were all in as soon as we saw the art on the packaging for ‘The Worst’ figures. What could be better than awesome heavy metal inspired art with action figures that only have 5 points of articulation? Answer? A cartoon!”
