The 10 Best Robot Chicken Sketches of All-Time

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.

Why 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

Original airdate: 2/27/05
In 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"¦in space.
References: You Got Served, Voltron
Why 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.

8. Terrorism

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

Original airdate: 5/21/06
In 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.

4. Optimus Prime Dies of Prostate Cancer

Why 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!"
