But now that we have made some serious progress, and finalized some details, Adult Swim has announced our amazing new cast for the Saturday Action Fun Hour! We couldn’t be more excited Alison Haislip has joined the team as our Blue Unicorn, along with Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk, Tara Strong and Kevin Shinick. Written by Dan Milano.

Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk Among Cast Set For Adult Swim’s ‘Team Unicorn’ Pilot From Robot Chicken Duo

Production is underwayTeam Unicorn SAFH photo by Eric Blackmon (1) on the Team Unicorn Saturday Action Fun Hour! pilot for Adult Swim. Penned by Dan Milano (Greg The Bunny) and inspired by the Team Unicorn cartoons, the pilot is described as a modern twist on Saturday morning-style cartoon/live-action hybrid shows, but for adults. It follows the adventures of the four mythical heroines who masquerade as human girls. Danger Maiden Prods’ Clare Grant and Rileah Vanderbilt executive produce and star alongside original Team Unicorn member Milynn Sarley (How I Met Your Mother) and Alison Haislip (Attack Of The Show) as both Team Unicorn and their cartoon counterparts. Jane Lynch (Glee, Hollywood Game Night) voices the villainous Dark Puba; Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory) voices her sidekick, Chummy Cherub; Tara Strong (The Fairly OddParents) voices Billy, the boy with the ability to summon Team Unicorn; and Kevin Shinick (Mad) is the show’s announcer. Robot Chicken creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich serve as executive producers for Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. Green is directing the pilot.
Danger Maiden Productions was formed in 2009 when Grant and Vanderbilt wrote/produced and starred in the viral video Saber, which won Best Action and the Audience Awards at the Lucasfilm Fan Awards. Recently they completed the trilogy, which has racked up more than 7 million views collectively. Team Unicorn first was introduced to geek and female empowerment fans in 2010 via G33K & G4M3R Girls, written and produced by its original members. The viral-video sensation captured a million views in its first week as a geek-centric parody of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” music video. Other Team Unicorn videos include Alien Beach Crashers, SuperHarmony, A Very Zombie Holiday and For The Win.

Starring Team Unicorn (Michele Boyd, Clare Grant, Milynn Sarley & Rileah Vanderbilt) and directed by Dave Yarvo.

Featuring cameos by Al Yankovic, Aisha Tyler, Grant Imahara & Ashley Holliday.


 You’ve waited a long time for this haven’t you?

We know. Us too.

We were waiting to bring you something special, and by golly, we’ve done it. This music video is special to us because it’s our first original song, and in it, we sing about all the geektastic stuff that brought us together at the most geektastic place on Earth:

San Diego Comic Con.

We feel like it’s a song everyone can get behind, regardless of their geekery, because it’s a song about people putting aside whatever damage they have acquired in their life’s quest, and coming together to have fun and win at life as equals.

For the Win.

Watch it. Share it. Download the song.

Double Rainbows everyday

–Now we all plan Harry Potter movie nights
–Around our weekly lightsaber fights
–Our powers are stronger than the true source

–Together we’re more (and more and more and more)

–Winter’s Coming and only we can handle it
–Come with us, ‘cause we’re fiercer than the Mord’sith.

–We’ll prove to you that unicorns do exist
–You’re not alone, now you’ve found your home.

 

Win Win Win
Everybody for the win
Come together join the team

We’ll show you what it means

(Whoa Whoa Whoa)

 

Win Win Win
Everybody for the win

Double rainbows every day

Ninja Gaiden we will play

Monday’s fighting robots

Tuesday’s reading comics

Wednesday’s raiding all the way to Thursday

Reforging weapons on Friday for larping
Where did my weekend gooooooo?

Teaming with Stage Five Studios, Team Unicorn has a new video set to debut on March 4th and IGN has the debut of the trailer for it. Called “For the Win,” the music video features Team Unicorn fighting the good fight in a war against a mysterious Dr. Claw-like enemy. From the inclusion of the one ring to the familiar face to Harry Potter fans on posters in the background, look for plenty of references throughout.

Per usual for Team Unicorn, there are also several notable cameos, including Aisha Tyler, Grant Imahara and Ashley Holliday – and one other top secret cameo from a beloved figure in the music industry. Dave Yarvo, who directed “Geek & Gamer Girls”, returned to helm “For the Win.”

Guest starring Zachary Levi (Chuck), Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy), Abraham Benrubi (ER, Robot Chicken) and Magda Apanowicz (Caprica).

“Alien Beach Crashers”! The fun’s coming your way, SUMMER 1964!

 

SUPERHARMONY

Isn’t love grand?  It certainly can be a little tough out there to find that special someone.  Especially if you happen to be a superhero or supervillain. Enter Team Unicorn’s latest collaboration with Sean Becker (The Guild) and Colton Dunn (MADtv), “superHarmony”.  superHarmony is a parody of the dating service eHarmony, featuring real life people meeting the love of their lives through the superHarmony website.  Derek Mears (Friday the 13th) portrays a romantic but still devious Lex Luthor.  To complete the feeling of this mock-commercial, the girls created the website www.superHarmony.com for your viewing pleasure.

A VERY ZOMBIE HOLIDAY

“A Very Zombie Holiday” is a 1950’s style spoof PSA on how to ensure a happy holiday season during a zombie apocalypse.  Featuring tips like “Prioritize your pies” & “Give your Children Guns”, the video has garnered over one million unique views to date. Team Unicorn continued to utilize artists in the pop culture community by bringing on Sean Becker (The Guild) to direct and “Robot Chicken’s” Emmy Award-winning Zeb Wells to write the script. Along with the girls of Team Unicorn, “Zombie” also features Magda Apanowicz (Caprica) and the Tom Holland (director of Child’s Play).

G33K & G4M3R GIRLS

“G33K & G4M3R Girls”, also known as the “Geek & Gamer Girls” song is the project that brought Team Unicorn together.  With over a million views in it’s first week, “G&GG” references everything in pop culture from video games to Dr. Who. With funding from Break.com, the song is a love letter written by Team Unicorn about everything geeky that they cherish and features cameos from geek icons Seth Green, Katee Sackhoff & Stan Lee.  Although the video’s sexy costumes and “American Beauty” style shots started a worldwide debate about sexuality in the geek world, the video was intentionally done as a direct parody of Katy Perry’s music video for her song “California Gurls”.
