Robot Chicken crew to star in Titan Maximum

Robot ChickenSeth Green and a bunch of his associates from Robot Chicken will be lending their voices to a new animated series called Titan Maximum which is, for all intents and purposes, a parody of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and their ilk (or even Voltron). Many of the people behind this show are also behind Robot Chicken.
