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 »

Hit and miss
27 March 2015 | by J-bot6See all my reviews

When this show's skits are good, they're generally really good.

However, there's an unfortunate tendency for shows like this to eventually degrade into unfunny territory. You can generally tell when the gross-out jokes start to outnumber the legitimately funny ones. This same issue plagued Aqua Teen Hunger Force as well. Likely it's a result of writers getting too used to each other in an insular environment with few trusted people to check or critique their work.

Having said that, Robot Chicken is a fantastic show for people who know and love their pop culture references. Stop-motion is the ideal format and the patience of the animators is very much appreciated.

Well worth a look.
