Toons After Dark: Three sidekicks walk into an elevator, and......! (Robot Chicken, 2011)

Props to the Star twins over at Twin Factor for tipping me to this next Robot Chicken entry.

Perhaps inspired by the now-legendary "Sidekicks" house ad Cartoon Network produced some 15 or so years earlier, we find Orko (He-Man & the Masters of the Universe) sharing an elevator with Snarf (Thundercats), and soon joined by Gleek, for once traveling on his own, away from the Wonder Twins. Co-creator/co-executive producer Seth Green (Family Guy) voices Orko & Gleek.

Geez, where were the old school sidekicks, like Baba Looey, when you really needed them?

Rating: B-.

I think Baa-baa Louie wouldn't be caught dead in an elevator with those guys!

Maybe, unless he learned how to interpret Gleek's chattering.....
