Bubo Makes Appearance in 'Community'

In case you missed it: Bubo the mechanical owl (this blog's unlicensed mascot) shows up in the latest "Community." The episode is rendered in stop-motion animation, so I guess it made sense to give a shout-out to one of the most revered stop-motion characters of all time (thanks for the tip, BuboBlog Dallas correspondent Ted).

Bubo is only visible in the background, appearing as a sculpture on John Oliver's desk. But guess what? He gets a much longer cameo than he did in the new "Clash of the Titans" movie!

In the film, he was on for about 8 seconds.

In "Community," the scene lasts about a minute and Bubo is visible at least half the time.
