Robot Chicken is a series of stop-motion sketch comedies featuring various toys, action figures, dolls, and clay figures, as well as random objects like game pieces from board games. Each episode runs at about eleven minutes each, and they are all free-standing; the show follows no central plot. Produced and created by Seth Green
and Matthew Senreich
, Robot Chicken's sketches mostly focus on mocking pop culture, such as television, movies, music, and parodying popular fads. Another common theme in Robot Chicken is placing popular characters and toys into real life situations.
