Trivia

Over sixty titles were considered for this show, including "Junk in the Trunk", "ADD TV", "Gold Dust Gasoline", "Toyz in the Hood", "Vegetable Fun Fest", and "S&M Presents", but all were rejected due to trademark or other legal reasons. 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.

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.
