Robots: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship

Hack and Slash

Does it bother anyone else that the robots in the newly aired episode of Doctor Who, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, are exactly like Hack and Slash from the 1994 CGI kids’ program Reboot? I mean this in both personality–bumbling idiots, constantly arguing, and yet somehow dangerous, working for evil though possibly not inherently evil–as well as shape–broad shoulders, skinny waist. I seem to remember that Hack and Slash were meant to be spoofs of two other famous characters, but I don’t remember who. If you know, please leave it in comments. Perhaps both Doctor Who and Reboot pulled from the same source. If not, do you think that it is a direct homage to Hack and Slash, a rip-off, or a coincidence?

  1. Actually, they sounded basically like 80% of Mitchell and Webb’s skits. AND THEY WERE VOICED BY MITCHELL AND WEBB.

    I sincerely do not think it was a ripoff in any way shape or form.
