5.0 out of 5 stars ...a brilliant variation on the art of social satire., September 4, 2007
I can't say enough for this series! I laughed so hard at the 'Star Wars' parodies, I gave myself an asthma attack! Seriously, it brings to mind the scorching, dead on satire of Mad and National Lampoon magazines in the '60's and '70's, such as the Barbie and Ken reality photoplays. RB's creators have given us a brilliant variation on the art of social as well as political satire. The flight-suited George Bush doll says it all. And, all the while you watch this, no matter how good the writing or the artwork, you still see in the back of your mind a bunch of grown men playing with their 'collectable' toys. And that's what makes Robot Chicken such a hit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky take on death is cathartic as well as funny ., August 10, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I loved this series, it was a hoot! Even though it's filled with mostly 'gallows humor' storylines, it's intelligent, well written as well as really funny. You care about the characters and want to see them succed (even though they're by and large all dead). It's cathartic, too, in a society that so seldom deals in a straight foreward way with death. For anyone who thinks about the quality of life and death, both one's own as well as anyone we care about, this is a great series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anti-Feminist Angle?, June 9, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent and intriguing. Several of these can't be found anywhere else. The reasons for some of them being banned are, as the text says, really hard to understand today. "Scrub Me Mama w/a Boogey Beat" is especially interesting. Obviously, black people( mostly men) are portrayed in ugly stereotyping, ie. slow and lazy. But there are some other things going on, too. I noticed that in all of 'Lazy Town', one of the few people working, including animals and fish, was the washing LADY. Into this town comes a couple of very different black people, a riverboat captain(a prestigious occupation) and a boogey woogey singer(a member of the new Harlem Renaissance Group) I can't help but wonder if the real reason it was banned was because the black girl singer is sexy, hip, beautiful, well dressed AND a dynamite singer. She took the washer woman image and turned it upside down and had fun with it. Maybe I'm wrong but maybe the real reason was white audiences could not accept a black person that way. I thought she did a great job of blowing stereotypes out of the water. Why not show it, unless someone was afraid it would give black people or any outsider 'the wrong idea'
