Trivia

The show is based on a regular feature in ToyFare Magazine, of which Matthew Senreich was the Editor. The feature was titled "Twisted ToyFare Theater" and had various toys in bizarre situations. Then, Senreich interviewed Seth Green for his magazine, and Green approached Senreich about doing an animated series based on the magazine feature. The result was an Internet series titled "Sweet J Presents", which aired on Sony's website in 2001. Green and Senreich then pitched the show to the Cartoon Network. See more »

It's insane, twisted, sick... IT'S FANTASTIC!!!
15 April 2005 | by CountVladDraculaSee all my reviews

This is great! This is the best thing I've seen Cartoon Network do. Seth Green is a warped genius. This is madness in it's purest form.

Robot Chicken is a sketch show that uses action figures and various dolls to act out scenes in stop motion animation. It's only fifteen minutes long and only airs once a week but it's great fun. It's so completely random that you have no idea what's going to happen next. Nothing is sacred. Adult Swim has a real gem with this one.

This show is fun. It's like watching a mad man play with his old childhood toys. You can't help but look as you see Seth Green's sick imagination unfold bizarre and comedic situations for several famous characters with their action figure counter parts. Various celebrities lend their voices. I hope this show lasts a good long while.
