There are those out there who may have had their doubts, but this past Sunday Adult Swim's Robot Chicken co-creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich celebrated a landmark: the coveted 100th episode of their Emmy Award-winning show.
Since its premiere in 2005, the stop-motion animation series (or, in other words, one in which real objects are physically manipulated to bring them to cartoon-like life) has truly encouraged people across the nation to embrace their inner nerd and/or stoner with its fast-paced and boundary-free sketch comedy, featuring an ample supply of skewered familiar toys and pop culture icons. The show's makers, clearly aware of widespread television ADD, recognize that they have limited time to make an impression on fickle viewers. Thus, the sketches range from a few seconds to a couple of minutes, giving the distinct feel of channel surfing without having to do any of the actual work.
Even better, if you're a sucker for dark comedy, it's not uncommon to catch a glimpse of Barney the dinosaur soliciting prostitutes, Cuddles the fabric softener bear getting caressed without consent, or the Tooth Fairy arriving to a house in the midst of domestic violence. But where to start? That's where we come in. In honor of the show's recent milestone, we present to you The 10 Funniest Robot Chicken Sketches.
