What do animators do when they have extra time and materials on hand? That’s a trick question; animators really don’t have any extra time. But if there were a few surplus minutes on hand, they might make something like History Cops.
The Lego Movie hits blu-ray next week, but one of the special features is online now. History Cops is a parody of grindhouse trailers featuring Lego versions of Michelangelo and Abraham Lincoln.

Will Forte reprises his Lego Movie role as Abraham Lincoln. (I believe The Lego Movie co-director Phil Lord voices Michaelangelo.)
