Out of the many titles the show's creators submitted, only "Robot Chicken", the name of a local Chinese restaurant dish, was accepted. Some of the rejected names were later used as episode titles.

A rebuff from hell - this show is very funny
12 April 2005 | by mrcrumplesSee all my reviews

"Sucks beyond belief." Wow. This mouth breather signaled his own egress from the cave long enough to mash out that lovely missive on his large key keyboard. I mean, why would I even bother watching a show chosen by a TV programming block with a proved track record for outstanding humor, when I have Captain Troglodyte to save my precious time? I mean, he's writing reviews for free, of a show made by people who are paid for having talent and creativity. And he manages to do this in between flipping orders of fries, for OUR BENEFIT, PEOPLE! Woo, anyway. That steamed my beans. Robot Chicken is worth the whole 11 minutes it consumes of your life once a week. I proudly defend this intelligent distraction from the misery of a world populated by people like my man who wrote the previous review. And it had a Barbie with big knockers. N Skeletor farted and stuff.
