Robot Chicken (March 14, 1989-September 4, 2004; September 9, 2001 -) is a chicken cyborg that watches lots of television, thanks to a mad scientist who brought him back to life in September 2004 (which was when Robot Chicken first premiered as a TV show). He wonders why God has given him a second chance of life as he is forced to watch action figures and toys do rather strange things.
He loves playing with action figures, but unfortunately all he can do nowadays is scream in agony.
He is currently residing with the mad scientist that created him, who experiments on him daily, trying to make him more robotic and crazy.
Someday this chicken may be freed from his torment...but more likely the mad scientist will chop off his head and make some chicken wings out of him, assuming the mad scientist knows how to cook.
Early Life and Death
Robot Chicken's life as a chicken truly wasn't that much better than his current life. He was born in 1989 and he was Jewish, which was unfortunate as all the other chickens were Nazis. His parents were an artist and a math teacher, who divorced in 1972, when he was 10, leaving the chicken all alone.
After the divorce, Robot's tough life had begun. Whenever he told a joke he thought was funny (he even asked why the chicken crossed the road, that seemed to offend the other chickens), the other chickens would kick him in the balls because they believed that the jokes were offensive.
He loved to play with action figures , which earned him the dislike of the other chickens.
Later on, Robot Chicken got into animation. He would use playdoh to make claymation, causing the other chickens to dislike him even more.
By age 10, he was a Star Wars fanatic. He loved loved watching Star Wars (this was in 1979 so he only watched the first one), which of course the other chickens did not.
Eventually, by summer 2004, he decided he couldn't stand the mistreatment the other chickens gave him, and decided to escape from the concentration camp of a farm after one of the chickens talked about putting him in a gas chamber.
He attempted a few suicides then, but kept getting caught by his dad (Robot Chicken never moved to a house on his own). He did however understand their son's depression, and told him that suicide wasn't the answer.
In September 2004, he managed to escape the barn while the farmer was away, but he was run over not long afterwards when he returned to the farm early to hang out with his friends. The poor chicken lay on the driveway, where the fleas would lay thousands of eggs in him so that he would slowly decompose. He was the ultimate form of roadkill.
Becoming The Robot Chicken
The chicken kicked it on September 4, 2004. However, this would not be the end of him, oh no. Robot Chicken is the only living thing known to man to die and come back to life, besides Jesus. Five days after his death, Chicken's corpse was found by a now-deceased mad scientist named Fritz Huhnmordor (), who wanted to see if he could create a robo-chicken that would create more robo-chickens if it lay eggs in a cliche mad scientist fashion. Of course, this was mainly for fun rather than for science. The chicken was taken back to the laboratory for the diabolical experiment, which surprisingly was not far from the farm.
The mad scientist strapped the chicken to a table, where he would be experimented on with sharp knives, needles, scalpels, and a plunger the mad scientist bought on Ebay. After many hours of this, he finally managed to create the robot chicken. He was alive! Alive!
And yet nobody except the mad scientist cared.
Robot Chicken was married to Posh Roastbeef. He was 15 years old! They didn't have any children.
The wife made an appearance in the season 5 finale, and was thought by Robot Chicken to have been roasted into chicken, but was immediately overjoyed when he saw her standing by the window after crushing the life out of Fritz Huhnmordor, the mad scientist.
After he was done making the mechanical chicken, the mad scientist didn't want the chicken to become bored as he was used for unrealistic science, so he decided to have him watch his plasma TV.
Unfortunately, the mad scientist's favorite shows were pretty bad. The poor chicken had to watch all of these horrible, horrible shows that nobody could watch without screaming in agony, which for some reason was warped in twisted ways by the mad scientist's television set, causing it to become even more painful to watch.
Occasionally, he would actually be able to watch a show that was half-decent or a movie, but due to the twisted warping, it would often end up with lots of crude humor, causing it to hurt all the same.
Robot Chicken wishes he could change the channel or better yet, turn off the TV set, but unfortunately his wings are still strapped to an operating table.
Rumor has it he's still watching these today, wishing for death and slowly becoming insane as the mad scientist who created him...at the strange, hidden laboratory of the mad scientist...that's right down the street.
Revenge and Death of Fritz the Mad Scientist
Thankfully, the Robot Chicken would get his revenge on the Mad Scientist in January 2012. An idiotic maid decided to release him from his chair, and he responded by murdering her gruesomely. He then went back home to visit his wife, but unfortunately she had been kidnapped by the crazy lunatic.
The Robot Chicken decided to invade his tower and kill all of the Mad Scientist's friends and everyone else that plain hated the cyborg and went inside to find that the Mad Scientist had turned his spouse into fried chicken.
Furious, the chicken decided to kill him with irony, crushing him underneath several television sets, sending him to the darkest depths of Hell where he would have to watch the Jerry Springer Show. The scientist was 92 years old, and he never had a wife.
Afterwards, he and his wife made out...as it turns out, she was somehow still alive and whole even though she was technically made into chicken wings...and they made out ignoring the fact that the food they were eating was made from chickens.
As of August 5th, 2012, when Season 6 already had like 12 of its episodes aired with the original intro, some high school home boys named the Stoopid Buddies stepped in and shot and killed the Williams Street staff and stuffed their bodies in a furnace,.
The new intro features the Robot Chicken turning the dead corpse of the mad scientist into a cyborg, and making him watch the televisions. Apparently, the stash of little television sets had magically rebuilt itself. Unless Robot Chicken has the ability to destroy and rebuild things in 10 fresh seconds.
Season 7 aired September 15, 2013 and started with a Simpsons esque Robot Chicken opening. It starts out with Homer realizing he is an action figure and he has all these god-like magic powers. He can shoot his fist like a fist cannon to punch down neighbors, and for somehow he can turn himself into a freakin' donut (wtf?) Then the Simpson family in the car heading for the "Bad-Ass City", a toxic wasteland with hippie bus drivers. They somehow can drive over some cliff and zoom to the garage. Then the Simpsons are suddenly strapped to the couch with the Robot Chicken controlling the TV, and when Homer tells him to "put the chicken one back on", he ignores him and turns it to the Simpsons. How clever? Homer Simpson hates the very show he stars in! He syre is a dum dum.
