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

Trivia

Although some stop-motion animation figures are made of clay, the figures in this series are either a hybrid of plastic doll limbs and Styrofoam torsos or toys that are made completely of plastic. Very few small figures, however, like the lemmings in The Animal Kingdom presents sketch, are made of clay. See more »

The parts are there, it's just that no one bothered to piece them together properly...
11 December 2010 | by (States) – See all my reviews

In theory, i should love this show. I love crazy drawn out jokes, a la Family Guy, parody and random, nonsensical humor, a la Tim and Eric's awesome show (great job!), and ridiculous slapstick, a la jackass, but this show just doesn't do it for me.

My friends rave about the hilariousness of this show, but i found all the jokes to be stupid, in a BAD way. sometimes the jokes are drawn out far too long like in family guy, but what makes it funny in family guy is that the drawn-out-ness IS the joke; while in Robot Chicken the drawn outedness is always just a long setup to a weak punchline. As someone said, it seems like seth green took the family guy formula and broke it down to its simplest form possible, so all the jokes are "enhanced" by either obnoxiously sexual innuendo or the F-word (both of which can be funny, but not when its the default way to get a laugh out of your audience...) Half the jokes in the show are based upon the gimmick of taking innocent children's cartoons like care bears and making them swear non-stop, which is funny for an episode or two, but gets old fast.

Ill give them a few stars because the claymation is very good and sometimes fun to watch, and occasionally itll get a chuckle out of me, but overall I've always found myself underwhelmed by this show, and its especially frustrating that it seems to take up 95% of adult swim's time slots. I suppose if you like "happy tree friends" maybe this is for you, but if you're expecting something as funny as family guy, look elsewhere.
