    I found two "new" episodes of Robot Chicken on my TiVo this evening: "Blanket in a Pig" and "Adutizzle Swizzle" both marked as 2008. Both were old episodes though and I can't find those episode titles on tv.com.

    There's another airing of Adultizzle at 2:30am, so I'm going to manually record it just in case.

    Anyone else with messed up Guide data for Robot Chicken on Cartoon Network?

    The re-airing of Adultizzle Swizzle at 2:30am was the same repeat.

    Oh well ... anyone know for sure when this is coming back?

    Ok, now I'm confused.

    According to the wiki, Adultizzle is a Season 1 episode with an OAD of 5/16/2008, and Blanket is a Season 2 episode with an OAD of 5/15/08.

    :confused:

    I swear I've seen both of these before ...

    Read the "Trivia / Info" for the episodes.

    It's my all-time favorite RC piece. I still have the Star Wars special on my TiVo teed up to this segment.

    I'm looking forward to the DVD release (supposedly 22 July) so that I can delete it...

    I don't want a soft copy---I want something to keep.

    My TiVo caught a new episode of RC over the holiday weekend (Tubba-Bubba's Now Hubba-Hubba). Pretty funny (always love to see Voltron sketches).

    According to TV.com, there was an RC Anime Special aired on 7/5 but my SP didn't pick it up (maybe because of a different name in the Guide data?). Did anyone else see this or can confirm it aired?

    There's nothing about it on the Wiki, and that's usually pretty up-to-date...

    The only problem with the SW special is that it doesn't include the skit where Darth Vader hosts Han, Leia and Chewie for dinner on Cloud City - that's one of my all-time favorites. My 2nd fav is "Dicks with Time Machines" :D

    Oh, and the guide data for RC has always been jacked up. Luckily it's only 15 minutes long so you can capture them all and watch them at your leisure!

    That's on the version available for the 360, are you sure it wasn't in the special initially?

    (always is a bit of an exaggeration)..

    but you DO have to add padding on each end, since very often it doesn't fit in its allotted timeslot.. I add 2 minutes on each end.

    I've only been recording RC for a few months but I've never had to pad either way. Sometimes the opening credits might be clipped, but that's usually it. In fact, I wish there was a way to stop recording early so I don't record several minutes of whatever it is that comes on after RC.

    My favorite Star Wars RC parody has to be Vader's collect call.
