Seth Green' made it hip to be a nerd again. Who knew the dude who was the werewolf from Buffy the Vampire Slayer was, in fact, a comic genius? We've been enjoying RC for the last two years, and it' about damn time we spread the love. So for all you stoners, drunks and lollygaggers that haven't seen the show-named, apparently, for a meal on a Chinese food menu-we present to you the 10 best sketches Robot Chicken has ever offered up.
10. Ode to the Nut-shot
2/27/05In a nutshell:
A musical ode to the greatest and oldest comedy staple, the nut-shot. References:
Nut-shots, The 1812 OvertureWhy we like it:
Well, it' funny. Seriously, go kick your friend in the nuts. He'll find it hysterical. Just remember to tell him the Internet made you do it.
9. Voltron Gets Served
2/27/05In a nutshell:
Voltron, hero of our youth, goes to battle against a Robeast. But instead of a poorly drawn, sparsely animated fight, we get the match of a lifetime: a dancing battle for street cred"Â¦in space.
References: You Got Served
, VoltronWhy we like it:
There' the break-dancing robots for starters. Also, Lion Voltron could totally school that other Voltron made out of 320,429 cars, planes and boats. But the funniest part is probably when that mouse thing goes "Aw Damn" at the end.
4/6/06In a nutshell: Robot Chicken
lets you know that if you ever try to joke about America, you're supporting terrorism. And if you say "fart," the terrorists will invade your school faster than you can say Red Dawn
War on Terror, President Bush, that movie The Core
with Hilary Swank.Why we like it:
This fine educational video shows us that it is in fact hilarious to mock terrorism, the United States and that-oh, wait. Some guys wearing turbans just broke into the office.
7. Fast Food Final Fantasy
5/21/06In a nutshell:
The characters from Final Fantasy VII
work in a fast-food joint, complete with epic battles between Cloud and a potato he has to cut. But the best comes when Cloud must battle his shift manager, Sephiroth, so he can go see the Lakers on Saturday.
References: Final FantasyWhy we like it:
This is equal parts ol' fashioned satire and geek funny. Allows you to fantasize about casting Meteor on your boss so you can get Saturday off.
6. Apocalypse Ponies!
5/14/06In a nutshell:
Now, if you're kids are being little bastards, just get them Apocalypse Ponies! Collect all four! References: My Little Pony
, ApocalypseWhy we like it:
"I'm Death Pony. RAWRRRRRRR!"
5. The Ring Dating Service
6/26/05In a nutshell:
Man goes to a video dating service, but picks the tape with that creepy girl from The Ring
by accident.References: The Ring
, sad losers who use video datingWhy we like it:
"I think I just shit out my heart."
4. Optimus Prime Dies of Prostate Cancer
2/20/05In a nutshell:
On the pilot episode, we're treated to Optimus Prime' horrible discovery: he has prostate cancer. And it is by far one of the darkest sketches known to man.References: Transformers
, CancerWhy we like it:
If you're like us, you'll be busy crying your eyes out. But if we had to choose a single reason, it would be the following exchange:
Optimus: "Now we Transformers don't have organic internal organs and can't get cancer. But you do, and you CAN."
Jazz: "So get yer ass checked out before it' too late, turkeys!"
3. Tooth and Consequences, aka The Darkest Sketch
3/20/05In a nutshell:
On a quiet, peaceful night, the Tooth Fairy floats through the window of a little girl. Then the girl' parents come home. And then comes the fighting, a gunshot and three endings that get progressively darker.References:
Tooth Fairies, Disneyland, Why Daddy Hits Mommy
. Why we like it:
Everyone chant with us: DARKEST SKETCH! DARKEST SKETCH!
2. Morning Wood
4/30/06In a nutshell:
When you wake up in the morning, what' the first thing that you see? Morning Wood! Look around in your neighborhood. Everybody' got Morning Wood! It' from the makers of "Slow Dance Chubby." References:
Bruce Campbell, slang for erectionsWhy we like it:
"Hello, I'm Bruce Campbell, and I can't start my day without waxing my Morning Wood."
1. Captain Planet!
3/27/06In a nutshell:
Ted Turner is tired of Pan-Global' sludge dumping. And there' only one man who can stop them-Ted Turner"Â¦AS CAPTAIN PLANET!References:
Captain Planet, Ted TurnerWhy we like it:
Gives us an excuse to run around attacking people and screaming, "CAPTAIN PLANET!"
