Last night’s episode of Robot Chicken on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim once again took on Star Trek, this time the character of Wesley Crusher. And what makes it even funnier is Wil Wheaton seems bummed he wasn’t asked to do the voice. Details and link to video below.
Wesley hate – the skit
The premise of the joke was how the Star Trek The Next Generation writers were going to deal with the unpopularity of the character of Wesley Crusher. The bit has the Star Trek writers introduce a new character (‘Snirkles’) that is even more annoying than Wesley. You can watch it at cliqueclack.com.
And apparently Wil Wheaton thinks it was great and wishes he did the voice. Here is a Tweet he sent out about it last night:
Holy crap, Robot Chicken! That was hilarious and awesome. Yes, I would have done Wesley’s voice in a heartbeat, if @cyborgturkey had asked.
More Robot Chicken Trek
Of course Robot Chicken has dipped into Trek many times before, most recently with the perfect Wrath of Khan Opera in January.
