Why Robot Chicken Is Bound To Become A Cult Classic

Robot Chicken is a television series whose executive producer is Seth Green, the voice of Chris Griffin on the very funny and popular Family Guy cartoon series. With his wacky sense of humor and talent, Seth actually voices a number of characters himself. The show features stop-motion animation and was received very well; so well that it's actually won some pretty impressive awards. It's won several Emmy Awards, which is like an Academy Award for television instead of movies and films. It's also won an Annie Award which is an animation award, so it's obviously thought of quite highly.
Seth has never been afraid of controversy and treading on toes and this is quite apparent in Robot Chicken. Somewhat controversial, the sense of humor depicted in the series does go too far sometimes, yet, it remains popular within certain circles while offending and upsetting others. It's not meant to be viewed by children under the age of 17! In fact, it's definitely for adults. It does a lot of pop culture mocking and parodies that can only be truly appreciated by adults.
Many top entertainment personalities have been featured or contributed to Robot Chicken. Some of these include Kevin Bacon, Gene Simmons, the luscious Scarlett Johansson, Hulk Hogan, "Weird Al" Yankovic (what won't he do?) and even Hugh Hefner. Some of the main and recurring cast include Seth Green, Seth MacFarlane of Family Guy fame, Mila Kunis of That '70s Show and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
On several occasions, the show featured Hilarious Bloopers which is a parody of Bob Saget's America's Funniest Home Videos. His movements are depicted in an exaggerated way! Another recurring character is that of the nerd who has a lisp and is seen to be spitting when he tries to say the letter S.
Robot Chicken is not for everyone. However, if you do have a different sense of humor and are not easily offended (and if you're over 17), give this show a try. Give it a chance - you may just like it. No wonder it's fast becoming a cult classic.
