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 »

During the "Williams Street" production bumper at the end of the credits, a metal chiming sound can be heard. These is the exact same sounds used in the bumper for Jack Webb's production company, Mark VII Limited, in the late 1960s. See more »

Idiotic...but in a good way
18 April 2005 | by (behind you) – See all my reviews

Seth Green (from a slew of roles, including parts on Family Guy, Austin Powers, Rat Race, and BtVS) must be brilliant for having successfully pitched this show to a network. I know that if I were a TV executive and some guy came to me with this idea, I'd wet myself. And not from seeing the show.

The premise is simple: a mad scientist finds a dead chicken on the road. He re-animates it, creating a crazy half-cyborg half-poultry hybrid, which he then forces to watch modern day television. (I could make some crack about Seth Green reinvigorating the old 'why did the chicken cross the road' shtick, but must I really?)

In a painfully short thirteen minutes, viewers are treated to a madcap run through of modern television "classics." No show, movie, or person is safe from Green's satirical finger, and he points it at everyone. From easy targets such as William Shatner and N'Sync, to random acts of violence (a man opens a car door in traffic, only to have a motorcyclist slam into it), to today's fads of reality shows (be it Zombie Ideal or Pimp My Sister), to outrageous parodies that may send you to hell--such as Jesus as The Bride from Kill Bill--Green's stop motion trip through cable keeps the viewer's eyes wide open, waiting for the next shameless skewering. Don't blink; you might miss the joke.

No thinking here. For those with the unique Adult Swim brand of humor, "Robot Chicken" is a delightful romp through television without the bothering of watching it all day. Let's fight to keep this one on the air, people--it's worth it.
