My friend Robyn Yannoukos is an intern at ShadowMachine Films working on Robot Chicken and after watching the first 6 episodes of Moral Orel, another stop-motion animated series on Adult Swim that's also produced by ShadowMachine, I decided to see what sort of work Robyn's been doing.
Robot Chicken is insanely hilarious as beloved childhood toys rape and murder each other in rapidfire one-liner visual gags and retro mashup parodies.
My favorite visual gag from Season One depicts two naked guys playing a backyard game of ring-toss with donuts:
[from Season 1, Episode 09 "S&M Present"]
And my favorite parody features a vengeful Jesus hellbent on killing the Easter Bunny:
[from Season 1, Episode 02 "Nutcracker Sweet"]
Cheers to Seth Green and Matthew Senreich for creating such a twisted show.
