"Stupid Video Friday" & Robot Chicken Premeire

Robot Chicken's second season starts this Sunday, April 2nd at 11:30pm on the Cartoon Network.

I am betting many of you have not seen this show yet. But trust me, its great stuff! Robot Chicken was one of my favorite new shows last season. Nowhere else will you see the little Tivo guy come to life and take care of business with a baseball bat.

Robot Chicken was created by Seth "The short little red haired guy from Austin Powers and Buffy who is also more importantly the voice of Chris on Family Guy" Green and Matthew "Never heard of him" Senreich.

The show utilizes old school stop motion animation (think 1964's Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer) and moves at a rapid fire pace skewering everyone and eveything in its path. Sometimes a skit is literally 2-3 seconds long.

Since it's also "Stupid Video Friday" at The Dolf Zone, I thought I would put up some of my favorite Robot Chicken clips so you can judge for yourself.

Watch Robot Chicken's "Tivo Guy Comes to Life" (1:02) - This is without a doubt Ashton Kutcher's greatest work. I also love how the Tivo "bong" effect is employed.

Watch Robot Chicken's "This is Your Brain on Drugs" (0:58)

Watch a Best of Robot Chicken compilation (3:10)
