Robot Chicken Season 7 DVD Review

Robot Chicken exists in a very unique world, and the release of the seventh season on DVD hasn’t really changed anything.

The show is a wild and random mix of short vignettes that, in one way or another, take shots at pop culture and/or simply culture, with a definite air toward not just politically incorrect viewpoints, but several steps beyond the merely politically incorrect.

As time has gone on, the show created by Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Mike Fasolo, has clearly developed a distinct voice, but it has undergone changes as well. Certain sketches during the seventh season showcase a bit more style, and a more mature sense of how to get the comedy to deliver. That may sound a little highbrow for what is ultimately a completely ridiculous show that often features such things as the antics of Santa Claus as you’ve never seen him before,

"Robot Chicken" Deserves to Cluck on Indefinitely

If you want a show that takes hilarious jabs at pop culture using cuts from one scene to the next, the best option on television isn’t Family Guy but rather Robot Chicken, the stop-motion brainchild of Seth Green, Mike Fasolo, and Matthew Senreich. The series has managed to remain devastatingly funny even as the novelty of its use of action figures and various objects of nostalgia has worn off. Not many comedy series manage to outlive their novelty factor, but Robot Chicken does it, and in a way that’s as morbidly hilarious as the first season was (which is what made it so great). At this rate, Robot Chicken deserves to cluck on forever, or as long as the guys behind it are willing to do the painstaking stop-motion work combined with clever comic premises.

Robot Chicken Celebrates 100th Episode with 5 Day Live Webcam Event

Robot Chicken Celebrates 100th Episode with 5 Day Live Webcam Event
The 100th episode of Robot Chicken, the Emmy Award&#174-winning series, premieres Sunday, Jan. 15 at 11:30 p.m. (Et/Pt) on Adult Swim.

Blu-ray Review – Robot Chicken: Season Five – Overloaded with Bonus Content

He-Man, Lord Voldemort, Charlie Brown, G.I. Joe, The Smurfs, The Transformers and more are all fair game once again for the Robot Chicken crew. The Robot Chicken: Season Five Blu-ray release collects the entire twenty-episode season (the last five episodes are from the second half of season 5). Creators Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Mike Fasolo head back to the world of stop animation to poke fun of celebrities (such as at Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire), forgotten cartoons and day-to-day life. In typical Robot Chicken fashion, the creative team has packed in loads of additional content that together easily lasts longer than the sum total of 11-minute episodes. It’s a great release for fans, but you’ll probably want to spread your episodic viewing over multiple days to really savor it. Season 5 starts off with a very funny toy solider video. The jokes are fired just as

A mixture of old school stop motion animation and new-school pop culture in jokes, Robot Chicken is known for taking pot-shots at movie franchises, characters, actors and icons of popular culture from every decade – even the most well-known of icons. And you don’t get more iconic than the Star Wars franchise…

Unlike its two predecessors,which spoofed A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back respectively, Robot Chicken Star Wars – Episode 3 spoofs the Entire franchise, starting with the death of the Emperor at the end of Jedi and flashing back all the way to Star Wars Episode 1 before coming full circle back to where we started/ended.

Winners of the The 38th Annual Annie Awards Announced

Here's the full list of winners from the 38th annual Annie Awards. DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon sept the awards with 10 trophies including the award for Best Animated Feature, which is what I hoped would happen. That was my favorite animated movie of the year.

Pixar / Disney Boycotted the awards because they feel that the International Animated Film Society voters favor DreamWorks even though Up won the Best Animated Feature award last year. As much as I love Pixar animation, just because they don't win an award doesn't mean it's the end of the world, and I don't see why they feel they need to boycott. Just because they are Pixar doesn't mean every movie they make has to win.

According to THR "two years ago, questions about the voting were raised when Dwa's Kung Fu Panda swept the Annies feature categories, winning ten trophies and shutting out Pixar's Wall-e,

Votd: Brad Bird’s Annie Award Acceptance Speech and Winner’s List

The Vince Lombardi Trophy wasn't the only piece of hardware handed out this weekend. The 38th annual Annie Awards took place as well with the DreamWorks film How to Train Your Dragon sweeping many of the regular awards (which was to be expected with Disney/Pixar boycotting the awards [1] because of judging procedures they feel favor DreamWorks.) The highlight of the night, however, was when director Brad Bird was awarded one of three Windsor McCay Awards for career achievement (The others went to Eric Goldberg and Matt Groening). Bird couldn't be there to accept in person so he video taped an acceptance speech from the Vancouver set of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. Most of the video package highlighted Bird's incredibly varied history in animation (including The Simpsons, The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and more) but then things take a turn for the worse.
