Out of all the long-standing television shows that have continued to parody Nintendo’s content, Robot Chicken from Seth Green on Adult Swim has always been the prime contender for some of the best comical work mocking the company’s characters. In one of the most recent episodes of the mature-rated show, Robot Chicken’s writers combined both Animal Crossing: New Horizons and 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street movie for one hilarious parody.
“The Racoon of Wall Street” explains the success of Tom Nook from his own perspective after he quickly raked in an illegal way to make trillions of bells. Now with his deserted island of humans and animals living outside the law, the business tycoon continues his shady ways of sales to fund his paradise.
Disclaimer: Before watching the following video, it should be noted that an explicit content warning should not go unnoticed — again, Robot Chicken is a mature-rated show for late-night audiences packed to the brim with violent and sensitive humor. With that being said, take a look below!
From the sound effects dating back to the original Nintendo GameCube Animal Crossing title to Blather’s fear of bugs, there’s an incredible amount of detail put into this small short. Several notable Animal Crossing characters and locations from New Horizons can be spotted all throughout the video as Tom Nook rapidly goes through his history.
Previously Nintendo worked with Robot Chicken for the company’s E3 2014 press conference. Always remember the consequences for asking Reggie about Mother 3!
