'''''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:
 
#* [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0w5oGVwJ_Q ''Delicious Gummy Bears'']
 
#* J.R.R Tolkien, Jr., Jr.
 
#* [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODC7SOrRihE ''The Black Stallion'']
 
#* [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBjg1Ajxj-E ''Eagle Eye Smith'']
 
#* Unicorn Fantasy
 
#* [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHSPP-CzNl0 ''Lil' Hitler'']
 
#* Donkey Kong Halo
 
#* [https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zPxWmbYV_bs ''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:
 
#*[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrQcNwsjVEQ ''Pluto Nash Day'']
 
#* [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I92qnzio-oY Cole Slaw]
 
#* The Sodomy Cycle
 
#* [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-QYQQUKD2g Potter, You Fool]''
 
#*''[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dtf6BmU7o2Q Toy Story 4]''
 
#*''[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34w4KBBQ0_w The Homestar Runner Sketch]''
 
#* [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsLlZjKLleU 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 [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqWB5ChnOTc ''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.
