Run, it's Chucky the Royal Baby!
Britain's favorite royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton and their 1-year-old son Prince George, are given the puppet treatment in a new animated pop culture and politics-themed parody series, Newzoids...in a way that will haunt your nightmares. And the toddler prince has quite the mouth on him.
"Doctor, thank goodness you're here," "William" says to a physician inside a nursery, in a video posted on the ITV comedy's Facebook page.
"It's George," says "Kate," who appears to be wearing a royal blue dress coat.
"We've just got a terrible feeling that he might be...a bit common," "Wiliam" continues, with his wife speaking in unison.
Sporting denim overalls, a blue and white checkered shirt and gold bling bearing his initial, the little blond prince emerges and proceeds to objectify the doctor.
Newzoids premieres on Wednesday, ahead of the 2015 U.K. general election, which takes place on May 7, and ahead of the arrival of Kate and William's second child, who is due to be born later this month.

One of the show's producers is Giles Pilbrow, who worked on the hit '80s and '90s British satirical puppet series Spitting Image. However, he told The London Evening Standard, regarding Newzoids, "We're very different."
Other famous people parodied on the show include William's brother Prince Harry and their grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, political leaders such as President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron, who is running for re-election, as well as celebrities such as One Direction singer Harry Styles, Beyoncé and Benedict Cumberbatch.
