Last fall, the world of The Walking Dead collided with the insanity of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken in The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who's Walking. Although the dark zombie drama doesn’t always go for levity, co-creator Robert Kirkman and several of the show’s cast members were more than happy to spoof their characters. 

The entire 22-minute special is coming to Blu-ray and DVD next week. But the biggest attraction of that release may be the collection of deleted skits that didn’t make the final cut. SYFY WIRE has an exclusive debut one of those scenes, which features Michonne using her pet walkers to play Double Dutch jump rope with Carl. This may be one of the last times we’ll ever get to hear Chandler Riggs give voice to his character. It is also very, very silly. Additionally, Robot Chicken executive producer Tom Root and director Tom Sheppard filmed a short introduction for the clip.

Riggs was joined on the Robot Chicken special by his castmates Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Josh McDermitt, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Former cast members Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Steven Yeun, Michael Rooker, and Scott Wilson also got in on the fun, alongside Seth Green, Chris Hardwick, Breckin Meyer, and even Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe in a surprising musical turn as Gareth, the cannibal leader from Terminus. 

The DVD and Blu-ray also features two commentary tracks, including stories from Kirkman, McDermitt, and Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple as they reflect on the creation of this special. The “Behind the Screams” feature puts the focus on the Robot Chicken team’s creative process, while “Sketches to Die for” brings Kirkman and Gimple together with the Robot Chicken crew to pick their favorite segments in the special. 

The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who's Walking will hit DVD and Blu-ray on March 27.
