How it all began:
All of this mayhem started over a love of toys. Having worked throughout the comic book industry Matthew Senreich had risen through the ranks at comic bible Wizard to become editor of their Toy Fare publication.
While attending the annual Comic Con in San Diego he ran into actor Seth Green (Austin Powers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and a friendship blossomed over their mutual love of action figures.
Thus an idea was struck to take a loving swipe at everything from Star Wars to George Bush by animating their beloved toys every man’s drea right? But where did the obscure title come from? Seth Green explains, "Um, Robot Chicken was a dish from the Chinese restaurant where we ordered take-out."
Name settled and shows in production, Robot Chicken has gone on to become Adult Swim’s highest rated original show in the USA, winning an Emmy for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation in 2006 and 2007and it was recently nominated for two more Emmy’s this year for parody episode Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II.
