Storyline

Old-school stop-motion animation and fast-paced satire are the hallmarks of this eclectic show created by Seth Green and Matt Senreich. Action figures find new life as players in frenetic sketch-comedy vignettes that skewer TV, movies, music, and celebrities. It's television especially formulated for the Attention Deficit Disorder generation. Written by Civonos

Just Look What These 2 Naughty-Naughty Boys Did With Their Toys!
29 July 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

You know, after watching several scathing episodes of Robot Chicken, I'm now totally convinced that, as children, both of its creators (Seth Green & Matthew Senreich) not only gleefully played with "superhero" action figures, but, they also played with Barbie dolls, as well.

And, now, by presenting Barbie as nothing but a boy-toy slut, Green & Senreich are repeatedly killing her, over and over again, thus exorcising themselves of the joy that they had as children happily playing with her like she was their best friend.

What really irked me off about Robot Chicken was that its plot line seemed to have no real concern about coherency. And it also seemed to be too intent on repeatedly clobbering the viewer over the head with ultra-violent images, foul-mouthed dialog and hatefully insensitive attitudes.

What I also found very odd about this intentionally offensive TV show was its downright confusion. It sure seemed to me that its 2 creators appeared to be both savagely sneering at pop culture while, at the same time, whole-heartedly embracing its very essence and all of its many idiosyncrasies, all in one single breath.

When it came to Robot Chicken's overall cleverness, I found it to be very short-lived. And, generally speaking, its confused and erratic format was very much like grasping at straws, where its unavoidable repetitiveness became real annoying, real fast.

Originally titled "Junk In The Trunk" (very appropriate), for me Robot Chicken was its most satisfyingly entertaining when I viewed it in fast-forward mode. Yeah. That way it was only the flashing by of its wacky, over-the-top images that were in my face and the asininity of its caustic, low-brow verbal-humor could be completely ignored.
