The Walking Dead gets parodied in the latest Robot Chicken episode, “Collateral Damage in Gang Turf War.” The Nerd awakens to the zombie apocalypse after being knocked unconscious by Munson, the school bully. Like a true nerd he excitedly points out tidbits from the show. He explains to Courtney, the school cheerleader, that “apocalyptic crises tend to break down social barriers so it’s totally likely that you I will fall in love.” She promptly throws herself to the zombies.
Nerd eventually admits that he’s behind on the show but that’s when Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, makes a fortuitous appearance to give him some tips like “Season 2 of The Walking Dead is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.” Kirkman is devoured during his shameless plug and Nerd is covered in his entrails, which attracts zombie Courtney. After mulling it over, Nerd decides a zombie girlfriend is better than no girlfriend. That is until he finds out what zombie breasts feel like!
