“Robot Chicken” goes to the museum

RobotchickentrioHard to believe a late night cable show involving stop-motion animation and action-figure parodies of celebs, kidvid and other aspects of pop culture (and relentlessly sophomoric sexual humor) could warrant the museum treatment. But sure enough, Adult Swim’s utterly ridiculous “Robot Chicken” was the subject of a jawboning “Media as Lens” sesh at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills on Monday night.

Alas, events conspired to keep me from attending but I’m told it was good, surreal fun and that series co-creator/writer/director/voice cast member Seth Green charmed the hard-core fans who showed up. (That must’ve been a little scary for the Paley Center folks.) For the uninitiated, click here for all the “Robot Chicken” clips and genitalia jokes you could ever want.
