Who wants to see a stop-motion version of Chevy Chase? What about Joel McHale?
Well, you are in luck because Community is going all Rankin/Bass on us this Holiday season. One of the show’s stars, Allison Bree, revealed that the comedy series will have a stop-motion animated Christmas episode in the classic style of holiday classics like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
“It is so hard for me not to tell everybody I know about it,” exclaims Danny Pudi (Abed). “The minute we read that script, I was over-the-moon excited. It’s like that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer special that you see every Christmas. But in true Community fashion, it’s also a little subversive and a little dark.” [Ausiello Files]
Joel McHale elaborates
“I can confirm that we are not yellow [like The Simpsons], and we do not have a talking dog [a la Family Guy] in the episode,” “But all your favorite Greendalians will be animated.” [Ausiello Files]
We’re taking bets now as to if one of our favorite characters from the classic, Yukon Cornelius will make an appearance.
UPDATE: Some video and screen grabs of what the cast will look like have been released
