I enjoyed just the randomness of it all. They made so many pop culture references, and then made fun of them! Sort of like Family guy.

It was stupid. A waste of time. Boring. Lame. I wouldn't watch it unless somebody payed me, and even then I would be listening to my iPod the whole time. I don't see how people watch these shows. It's like a complete waste of your life. 3nerfiteers, Robot Chicken is in no way like Family Guy. You see, Family Guy is a good, funny, quality show, and the makers put a lot of effort into making it. Robot Chicken on the other hand, is complete garbage. Trash. I could make a better movie in less time than the show runs, which is a mere 15 minutes because it's so crappy. Take what boltsniper said, and remove the words 'funny' and 'as,' then at a T and a Y to end of the last word he posted.

It was a God send after that ghastly Tom goes to the Mayor

The fact that they thought to put Walt Disney's head on a spider robot, feasting upon cuban kids is proof it their genius

Isn't that lemming thing just a myth? Anyway, I have not yet seen Robot Chicken, but I love Tom Goes to the Mayor's Office. That's just funny. If it is anything like T.G.T.T.M.O., I'll watch it.

Robot Chicken is about a mad scientist who created a half chicken half robot and forces it to watch TV. The whole show is spoofs off of other shows and things, and all things are re-done with toys. So it's completely random and funny at the same time. Of course it's made by Seth Green and has voices by himself, Seth McFarlane, Kurtwood Smith, and several others, which voice as some of the random toy figures that appear on the show.
Just watch it tonight for yourself to see if you like it. It's funny as hell, but really it hits those certain people's funny side who find random parodies of TV shows done with toys.

So if you like both Seths then you'd probably like the humour they share in this.

Yeah, lemmings don't commit suicide... they are, however, somewhat retarded. It seems they have large population growths during which time the Lemmings tend to migrate (as to solve population density issues), and during migration (since Lemmings tend to live in areas where cliffs and mountains and such are plentiful) some of them fall off of the cliffs in the area... plunging to their death. This is apparantly a common problem because many natives to the area told tales of lemmings living above the stars and falling from the sky. That's primarily where Walt Disney got the idea. He made a movie back in the '50s featuring suicidal lemmings.

Anywhoo, I have seen but one episode of Robot Chicken... and it was mostly damn funny. Walt Disney's head on a robotic spider and other such gags were pretty entertaining.

You do know how extremely tough it is to make a 15-minute long stop-motion film, right?

Yeah, I have lots of memories of school project stop-motion movies that took much longer than expected and still sucked. I have lots of respect for anyone who can do it well.

Wow, dude. Just wow.

Stop motion is when you move the clay a very small bit, and film it for a short time (like 1/10th of a second). Then, you move the clay a little bit more, and film that. Put it all together after months of work and you've got animation. It's kinda life a flipbook.

Bingo. I used to make some when I was younger. Some of them were pretty good, some sucked. I just remember it taking 4 hours to make a 10 second long video... That part kinda sucked.

Well, it doesn't neccesarily have to be clay, but the idea is just taking an object that represents something real and moving the articulated areas of it realistically and filming each movement for a short period of time (as mentioned) to create the illusion of life and/or movement.

This show is worth downloading if you havn't seen the first episodes. A few of the skits are stupid, but the moajority are hilarious. Best laughs in a long time.
