The Thursday Buzz: Abed Uses His Master Key in ‘Community’ Animated Short and More

by | March 8, 2012 at 9:47 AM | Community, Conan, The Daily Show, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

NBC is making a mini-push to promote the return of “Community” next Thursday, and part of it is a series of animated shorts called “Abed’s Master Key.” In the first episode, Abed (Danny Pudi) is deputized by Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) into being an assistant dean, and he is given a master key to everything at Greendale Community College. In the second episode, which is above, all of the Greendale study group — except for Jeff (Joel McHale), strangely enough — ask Abed for favors.

The favors are fairly small — Annie (Alison Brie) wants the library open every night, Troy (Donald Glover) wants his Super Soaker back from Chang (Ken Jeong). The only person who refuses to be corrupted is Britta (Gillian Jacobs)… until Abed rewards her willpower with all the power.
