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.
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, Bitch Pudding and even the titular Chicken.
- Plenty of hilarious and unforgettable sketches such as:
- Some of the toilet humor is really funny.
- Profanity is 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.
- Some sketches are extremely disturbing and unfunny, such as:
- 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.
- This show could be hated by some people because of the adult-humored parodies of kid-friendly media, possibly stating "it ruined their childhood".
