A 12 minute long show on Cartoon Network created by Seth Green. Many of the longer skits use 80s/early 90s pop culture icons such as GI Joe, Transformers, Thunder Cats, Smurfs, Voltron, etc... action figures, dolls, or claymation to act out the skits as well as even further past or current pop culture characters.

The skits can last anywhere from a few seconds to the majority of an episode with the shorter skits consisting of absolute random hilarity, ex: an alien pulling down a farmers pants then flying away, a gorilla sniffing his nose after putting it near his butt, a robot dry humping his dryer, etc...
Robot Chicken is best viewed when high as a kite.

The best show to ever grace Adult Swim.
Dude 1: Did you see last night's episode of Robot Chicken?
Dude 2: Oh my God, yes! George W. Bush sure does like tacos.
Dude 1: And the Bloopers guy is still obsessed with suicide.

Get the Robot Chicken mug.
The unpredictably random adult swim TV series created by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich for people with minor to severe cases of ADD. Animators use stop motion animation with toys (action figures, dolls, and claymation for special effects) to form the visual aspect of the show, and many special appearances of celebrities voicing themselves have been made including Stan Lee, Hulk Hogan, Snoop Dogg, Kelly Hu, Scarlett Johansonn, George Lucas, and Mark Hamill
Pirate 1: (has a helm wheel on the front of his pants)
Pirate 2: Arr! What's that steering wheel be for?
Pirate 1: Arrrr, it's driving me nuts!

Mad Scientist: *holding up a sign that reads* "Why did the chicken cross the road?"
Robot Chicken: *holds up a sign that reads* "Bawk?"
Mad Scientist: *holds up a sign that reads* "To die in the name of science!"
*pulls out a butcher knife and chases the chicken*

You really have to see a few episodes to get the idea

That TV show the three guys at your school library watch and quote constantly, to the extent where you will never, ever feel the urge to read a book again. Plots range from old toys from the 80s killing each other to old toys from the 80s doing nothing whatsoever for three seconds at a time.

It is available on DVD in Australia, but is not broadcast on Australian TV, thus the complete marketing geniuses at Adult Swim have insured yet another commercial sucess. See also sarcasm.
Harryy: "OMG, did you guys watch Robot Chicken last night?"
Jeff: "No, I was watching a real show."
Harry: "Spiderman killed Superman! There was plasticine blood everywhere! ROFL!"
Jeff: "Hm, yeah, have you talked to your psychiatrist about your blood soaked Lego figures?"
Harry: "She's not a fan, no."

One of the few shows that actually make me laugh out loud. Most funny shows (South Park, Beavis and Butthead, stand-up comics like Dennis Leary but not racist twatsuckers like Chris Rock) usually draw a grin from me. YET another Adultswim comedy goldmine (other fine examples are Futurama, Family Guy, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force).!
You want an example? Get off your computer and turn on Cartoon Network at night.
