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

  1. The stop-motion animation is amazing as they use action figures and dolls instead of clay-mated puppets.
  2. 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.
  3. Funny and likable characters, including the Nerd, the Bloopers Host, Bitch Pudding and even the titular Chicken.
  4. Plenty of hilarious and unforgettable sketches such as:
  5. Some of the toilet humor is really funny.
  6. Profanity is censored on television, though most home video releases of the show are uncensored.
  7. Great voice acting.
  8. Creative writing.
  9. Bizarre theme song that fits the show well.
  10. The success of this show spawned Titan Maximum and Buddy Thunderstruck, both of which are great.

Bad Qualities

  1. Some sketches are extremely disturbing and unfunny, such as:
  2. Most of the toilet humor is really unfunny.
  3. Some sketches are inaccurate to the source material they are parodying, such as the Team Fortress 2 sketch.
  4. 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.
  5. This show could be hated by some people because of the adult-humored parodies of kid-friendly media, possibly stating "it ruined their childhood".

I know it's just my personal opinion, but I personally HATE Robot Chicken. I apologize if I offended any fans, everyone has his or her opinions, but it's just one of those shows that doesn't appeal to me, especially since I hate shock humor.

Crude humor is not for everyone after all.

I like the show, but I respect your opinion, especially since you have valid reasoning for hating the show.

In contrast, most haters I've come across hate it because it made fun of something they like.

I love Robot Chicken. It's hilarious & the stop motion is distracting (and for all the right reasons). 9/10
