Just when you thought it wasn't possible for Seth Green and his friends at Robot Chicken to squeeze any more Star Wars jokes out of their pop culture-obsessed brains, they decided to team up with everyone's favorite hack director George Lucas and create a brand new animated series based in the Star Wars Universe.

We were treated this morning to a new trailer and clips from the new show, inexplicably called Star Wars Detours, which seems aimed at the same audience as Robot Chicken but with better animation and less 'He-Man is homoerotic' jokes. No network or air date has been released but call me crazy, I'm thinking...sometime soon and probably on Cartoon Network.

Check out the trailer below and look through the gallery for other animated TV series over the years that were spawned from hit movies.
