Robot Chicken jumps out of the frying pan and into the fire in the penultimate episode of The Colonel’s Chronicles Colonel, a three-part story (read: commercial) told as an old television serial complete with an announcer dramatically narrating the story.
When last we left our plucky hero, space adventurer Colonel Sanders charged him with protecting a mysterious briefcase from aliens. Its secret contents were a recipe for disaster. Robot Chicken fells his foes only to learn that he’s been protecting KFC’s secret recipe!
One of the green aliens unmasks to reveal that he’s actually a chicken but it’s unknown whether the rest are as well. The silver aliens are recurring characters in the series. They were the first of many to be killed in 100th episode special “Fight Club Paradise.”
The Colonel triumphantly seizes the recipe from his duped ally before sauntering off. Can Robot Chicken possibly win against the beloved mascot in his own commercial? It’s doubtful the company would allow him be harmed as he’s based on its founder Colonel Harland David Sanders. Find out in the final part, which will be released to coincide with the new season.
Robot Chicken season 8 premieres October 25, Sunday Midnight on Adult Swim / Cartoon Network.
