Robot Chicken – Sketch One: The Continuing Adventures of Thanos

One of my dreams is to write for Robot Chicken. And while I face a reality where that most likely won’t happen, please enjoy some of the skits I’ve written.

“The Continuing Adventures of Thanos”

EXT. WAKANDA BATTLEFIELD – DAY
The battle at the end of Avengers: Infinity War is in full swing. THANOS snaps his fingers. Half the universe disappears.

CUT TO: various survivors crying and panicked.
SURVIVOR
We will rebuild!

CUT TO: Thanos sitting on a park bench.

THANOS
Well, that was fun. Now what?”

A vacation brochure blows on to his feet. He snaps his fingers!

THANOS
Brilliant!

CUT TO: various survivors. Half disappear.

SURVIVOR
What the hell?

CUT TO: Thanos is standing on on the curb with suitcases and snaps his fingers to flag down a taxi.

CUT TO: various survivors. Half disappear.

SURVIVOR
Aw come on!

CUT TO: Thanos is sitting on a beach lounger. He sees a waiter and snaps his fingers.

CUT TO: various survivors. Half disappear.

SURVIVOR
Are you effing serious?

CUT TO: Thanos is on a dance floor. He is snapping his fingers in time to the music.

CUT TO: various survivors. Half disappear. Then half more. Then another half and another. Defeated sighs.

CUT TO: a dance floor, Thanos is the only one left. He snaps his fingers one more time and the left side of his body disappears

THANOS
Shit.

He topples to the floor.
