The Walking Dead gets parodied in the latest Robot Chicken episode, “Collateral Damage in Gang Turf War.” The Robot Chicken 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.” (see: Glenn) She promptly commits suicide by throwing herself to the zombies.
Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, makes a fortuitous appearance to give him some helpful tips like “Season 2 of The Walking Dead is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.” He’s devoured during his shameless plug and Nerd is covered in his entrails, which act as zombie camouflage just like in the comic book and TV series.
Unfortunately, he blends in a little too well and finally manages to attract zombie Courtney. After mulling it over, Nerd decides a zombie girlfriend is better than no girlfriend. That is until he finds out that zombie breasts bite.
