'''''Robot Chicken''''' is a long-running American adult stop motion sketch comedy television series, created and executive produced for Adult Swim by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich along with co-head writers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root.
== Summary ==
Seth Green and Matthew Senreich created the off-the-wall comedy hit, which is a series of pop-culture parodies using stop-motion animation of toys, action figures and dolls. The title character was an ordinary chicken until he was run down by a car and subsequently brought back to life in cyborg form by a mad scientist who tortures Robot Chicken by forcing him to watch a random selection of TV shows, the sketches that make up the body of each episode. The show often features special episodes built around a single theme, including ''Star Wars'' and DC Comics.
== Why It Rocks ==
# The stop-motion animation is amazing as they use action figures and dolls instead of clay-mated puppets.
# It satirizes pop-culture referencing to toys, movies, TV shows, celebrities and politicians, much in the same vein as comedy sketch shows like ''Saturday Night Live''.
# Funny and likable characters, including the Nerd, the ''Bloopers'' Host and Bitch Puddin'.
# Plenty of hilarious and unforgettable sketches such as:
#* [ ''Delicious Gummy Bears'']
#* J.R.R Tolkien, Jr., Jr.
#* [ ''The Black Stallion'']
#* [ ''Eagle Eye Smith'']
#* Unicorn Fantasy
#* [ ''Lil' Hitler'']
#* Donkey Kong Halo
#* [ ''Bob the Union Scab'']
# Some of the toilet humor is really funny.
# The bad words are censored on television, though most home video releases of the show are uncensored.
#Great voice acting.
#Creative writing.
#Bizarre theme song that fits the show well.
#The success of this show spawned ''[[Titan Maximum]]'' and ''[[Buddy Thunderstruck]]'', both of which are great.
== Bad Qualities ==
# Some sketches are extremely disturbing and unfunny, such as:
#*[ ''Pluto Nash Day'']
#* [ Cole Slaw]
#* The Sodomy Cycle
#* [ Potter, You Fool]''
#*''[ Toy Story 4]''
#*''[ The Homestar Runner Sketch]''
#* [ Home Alone Clip]''
#* Happy Birthday, Calvin
# Most of the toilet humor is really unfunny.
# Some sketches are inaccurate to the source material they are parodying, such as the [ ''Team Fortress 2'' sketch.]
#The Pepe And Michigan J Frog sketch is just a dumb crossover where none of the frogs won, instead it's just a political mess.
#The newer seasons (season 5-present) aren't as good as the old ones, this is probably due to Screen Novelties not being involved on the show after season 5.
