"The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman is the couch guest on this week's "Comedy Bang! Bang!," the faux talk show/sketch show's annual Halloween episode. This year, the theme is "Rocky Horror Picture Show" and host Scott Aukerman -- who's written a couple comic book stories himself, and is dressed as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in honor of the episode's theme -- asked Kirkman about one of the franchise's most distinctive tropes: That the zombies are called "walkers," because zombies don't exist in the "Walking Dead" universe.
Kirkman, in costume as Dr. Scott from "Rocky Horror," reveals that "walkers" isn't the only possible term for the not-zombies: He also suggests, among many others, "Spooky Boys," "Stinky Dudes," "Limpy McFlesheaters" and "A House for Worms."
This year's Halloween episode of "Comedy Bang! Bang!" airs 11 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29 on IFC. "The Walking Dead" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
