Editors Note
Note Ostensibly about a dead chicken reanimated by a mad scientist and forced to watch endless bad television, ROBOT CHICKEN actually exists as a madcap exercise in cramming as many inane pop-culture references, gags, and juxtapositions into a 11-minute time period as is humanly possible. Created by actor Seth Green (AUSTIN POWER, THE FAMILY GUY, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER) and ToyFare editor Matthew Senreich (the two met and bonded over their mutual love for action figures and collectible figurines), the Cartoon Network show uses stop-action animation and a host of dolls and action-figures to perform outrageous send-ups of television, film, and postmodern America. The premises are zany and zip by with supersonic speed: The Batmobile races the General Lee in "3 Fast 3 Furious," a teeny-bobber gets a fashion makeover in "Pimp My Sister," and Michael Jackson returns from space to expose his evil alter ego in "Where's Michael." This release contains all 20 episodes from the show's first season, with such guest star voice-actors as Scarlett Johansson, Burt Reynolds, Ryan Seacrest, Mark Hamill and Macaulay Culkin.
Reviews
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's a genius concept, the ropey stop-motion has a certain scrappy charm and there's an impressive roster of celeb vocal talent." 11/01/2008 p.148

Reviews
ReviewSource The Onion A.V. Club
Review Cartoon Network's cultishly adored Adult Swim animation block specializes in a curious form of pop-culture ventriloquism. But where the irreverent Harvey Birdman and Space Ghost: Coast To Coast limit themselves to putting words in the mouths of characters from Hanna-Barbera's sprawling universe of poorly animated crap, Robot Chicken uses the sum of pop culture as its outsized toy box...As Todd Haynes discovered with Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story, there's something paradoxically expressive about the inexpressiveness of plastic dolls, with their cold dead eyes and perfect bodies. And it doesn't hurt that [Seth] Green is a talented, versatile, experienced voice artist with an encyclopedic knowledge of trash culture, or that he seems to have all of Young Hollywood at his disposal for vocal cameos. Robot Chicken's satire can be deceptively brainy, but to its credit, the show never loses the joyously retro feel of kids playing with toys.

Quotes
David Bianculli, NY Daily Press " Watch the 15-minute premiere of 'Robot Chicken', Cartoon Network's newest [adult swim] entry, and I all but guarantee you'll laugh harder, and more often, than at any current prime-time sitcom twice its length."
Cynthia Boris, DVD Verdict ...the funniest stuff ever written. It's Family Guy with stop motion.
David Bianculli, New York Daily Press ...you'll laugh harder, and more often, than at any current prime-time sitcom twice its length.
Tim O'Neil, PopMatters ...the same anarchic glee that once made South Park the absolute apex of current satire...absolutely riveting.
Nathan Rabin, The Onion A.V. Club ...can be deceptively brainy, but to its credit, the show never loses the joyously retro feel of kids playing with toys.
Preston Jones, DVD Talk ...Saturday morning cartoons steeped in bong water, obscure Eighties movies and back issues of Toyfare magazine, julienned into YouTube-able bits of concentrated hilarity.
