Robot Chicken is a stop-motion animated sketch comedy television series that debuted on Adult Swim in 2005. Co-created by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, the show features a rotating cast of voice actors including Dan Milano, Breckin Meyer, and Chad Morgan. The show takes its name from a popular children's toy - robot chickens. The toys are featured throughout the series and serve as a recurring visual gag. Each episode is made up of a series of sketches, ranging in length from a few seconds to several minutes. The sketches parody a wide range of pop culture touchstones, from TV and movies to video games and comic books.

Despite its sizeable cast and broad range of topics, the show is remarkably consistent in terms of tone and style. Most sketches feature exaggerated, almost grotesque versions of the characters being parodied, with plenty of crude humor and violent sight gags. From Batman and Superman engaging in homoerotic hijinks to a twisted take on the Wizard of Oz, the show's humor is often dark and absurd.

One of the show's standout features is its use of stop-motion animation. Each sketch is created by taking still photographs of physical models, with voice actors recording their lines separately. The result is a look that's both intentionally janky and incredibly charming. The attention to detail in each sketch is impressive, with a level of craftsmanship rarely seen in modern animation.

The show's voice cast is also impressive, featuring several well-known celebrities in addition to the show's core cast. The late Anton Yelchin, Macaulay Culkin, and Mila Kunis are just a few of the notable names who have lent their talents to the show over the years.

As the show has progressed, it's become increasingly self-aware, often commenting on its own existence as a product of pop culture. This has led to some incredibly meta sketches, such as a take on the Justice League where the heroes are actually celebrities playing themselves.

While the humor can be hit or miss, the show's sheer volume of sketches means there's always something to enjoy. Some sketches are genuinely hilarious, while others are more miss than hit. However, the show's willingness to take risks and push boundaries more than makes up for any shortcomings.

Overall, Robot Chicken is a unique and irreverent take on pop culture that's well worth checking out. Whether you're a die-hard fan of the shows being parodied or simply appreciate crude humor and stop-motion animation, the show has something for everyone. With over 200 episodes aired to date, there's plenty of content to keep viewers entertained for hours on end.

Robot Chicken is a series that is currently running and has 11 seasons (233 episodes). The series first aired on February 20, 2005.
