Robot Chicken clip: Vader calls the Emperor - VIDEO

robot chickenThe thing about sketch comedy is that it's sometimes difficult to judge the show as a whole, because some sketches work while others fall flat. I wouldn't call Robot Chicken a "sketch show" but I think the same idea applies. The writers and animators fire a ton of scenes at you like buckshot, and while some hit their target, others are either not funny at all, or just zip by too fast for you to catch them. In its own weird way I guess it's kind of a stop-motion Laugh-In. One of my favorite scenes from the Adult Swim series is the one where the Emperor gets a phone call from Vader after the first Death Star is destroyed. He would have called sooner but he's been flying around trying to get a signal. I'm pretty sure that's Seth MacFarlane doing the voice of the Emperor. Check it out yourself after the jump. Favorite line: "What the hell's an aluminum falcon?"

It's a Cisco IP phone ring. CTU's not the only one with 'em.
