Exclusive Supercut: All The ‘Arrested Development’ “Chicken” Dances


Arrested Development fans are busy counting down the hours until Season 4 premieres this Sunday at midnight on Netflix, and here at Flavorwire, we’re no different. So, we’re passing the time by declaring this Arrested Development Week, all leading up to a Recap-a-thon on Sunday, when our own Jason Bailey will review the whole season, episode by episode. Click here to follow our coverage.

It began with a throwaway joke on the first season episode “Staff Infection,” with G.O.B. accusing Buster of being a chicken, and proceeding to imitate… well, not a chicken, but some sort of animal that clucks and claps. It then became one of Arrested Development’s best running jokes, with Lindsay, Lucille, and George Sr. each providing their own variation, none of them all that similar to a chicken. Here’s our supercut of all of them—along with our hope that we’ll see more variations (how’s about one from Buster?) in season four.
