Robot Chicken

Robot Chicken is an American stop motion animated television series
created and executive produced by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich
along with co-Head Writers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root.
Green provides many voices for the show
and Senreich, Goldstein and Root
were former writers for the popular
action figure hobbyist magazine ToyFare.

Series genre and creation

The program is a sketch comedy that parodies a number of
pop culture conventions using stop motion animation
of toys, action figures, dolls, and claymation
(usually for special effects) and various other objects,
such as tongue depressors and The Game of Life pegs.
The show's name was inspired by a dish on the menu at a
West Hollywood Chinese restaurant,
Kung Pao Bistro, where Green and Senreich had dined,
although the series originally
was intended to be titled "Junk in the Trunk".


The show focuses on mocking pop culture,
referencing toys, films, television, and popular fads,
as well as more obscure references (to some)
like anime cartoons and older television programs.
One particular motif often involves the idea
of fantastical characters being placed
in a more realistic world or situation
(such as Stretch Armstrong requiring a corn syrup
transplant after losing his abilities because of aging,
Optimus Prime performing a prostate cancer PSA,
and Godzilla having problems in the bedroom).
The program even had a 30 minute episode dedicated to
Star Wars which premiered June 17, 2007
in the US featuring the voices of Star Wars notables
George Lucas, Mark Hamill (from a previous episode),
Billy Dee Williams, and Ahmed Best.
(The Star Wars episode was nominated for a 2008 Emmy Award:
Outstanding Animated Program (for Programming Less Than One Hour).
Another recurring segment is "Hilarious Bloopers",
a parody of the Bob Saget era of
America's Funniest Home Videos
featuring the host constantly
moving around in various exaggerated,disjointed motions.
Unlike that show, this skit ends with the
host using various household methods of suicide.
Another recurring character is the "nerd"
a dorkey middle school kid with broken glasses
and a plaid shirt who talks with a lisp,
spitting when he says the letter S.
