Cartoon Coops Up Robot Chicken

2/01/2005 9:20 AM Eastern

Stop-motion animation series Robot Chicken will join Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim” block Sunday, Feb. 20, the network said Tuesday.

Robot Chicken, from actor/producer Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, brings pop-culture parodies to life in a modern take on the variety/sketch-show format, Cartoon said.

“In Robot Chicken, no pop-culture target is safe,” the network added. “Legions of action figures are used to spoof everything from Quentin Tarantino’s blood-spattered epics to The Real World, in which a cast of superheroes takes the place of drunken 20-somethings.”

Among celebrities who will lend their voices to Robot Chicken: Scarlett Johannson, Burt Reynolds, Ryan Seacrest, Mark Hamill and Macauley Culkin.
