House of Cards gets parodied on the Robot Chicken episode “Batman Forever 21.” When Smurf Village holds an election to be Papa Smurf’s second-in-command, Brainy assumes it will be him instead he once again gets thrown onto his head. The constant head trama has given him a lack of moral compass and a southern accent like Kevin Spacey’s character Frank Underwood.
Brainy conducts an unscrupulous campaign that includes teaming up with the Smurfs’ archenemy Gargamel, blackmailing Handy Smurf, and getting political favors by seducing Smurfette in a very Smurfy sexy scene. He appears to give her oral sex but when the camera pans down it’s revealed he’s just rubbing her feet.
“Well, what did you expect?” Brainy asks breaking the fourth wall. “This is not Netflix.”
Robot Chicken airs Sunday 11:30 p.m. on Adult Swim / Cartoon Network.
