  • Blanche - “My body was tingling all over…” This one delivers a shock to the system with skits like “Golden Girl and the City"! You've been WARNED!

    7.5
    Cracked China is one my all time favorite Robot Chicken episodes! The series overall is fantastic but to be fair this episode cannot top The Deed End (‘The Real World Metropolis’ and ‘Kill Bunny’ are Classics!). Not to say that Cracked China was lacking in flavor; on the contrary –



    Pokemon parodies will never cease to be Funny! Pikachu’s antics were hilarious even though it was a short (but satisfying) skit. ‘Golden Girls and the City’ sounded disturbing to me at first but when I heard “Dorothy here, Enjoying my Prune Juice Martini” I lost it! Who ever thought of this episode is a "CHAMPION"!

  • Dissappointing

    4.0
    Was anyone else as disappointed as I was with this episode. So far this season has been better and better with each episode until this one. Plus, the golden girls/sex in the city part was just...disturbing.



    I honestly loved the last few episodes, the dance dance revolucion was hysterical, captain planet made me almost wet myself from laughing so hard, and overall, the show has just been fantastic.



    But I have to say, I was really really disappointed by this episode. I really hope next week\'s is going to be a lot better than this one. Maybe its just a fluke and they\'ll get back to amazing episodes soon.moreless

  • NOTES (2)

    • The Stoop!d Monkey has decapitated himself with a pair of gardening shears.

    • When this episode first aired, this note from the creators could be seen:
      A while back, one of our executives left some Robot Chicken scripts in an L.A. cab. The other week, they turned up on eBay. Last time we checked the bid was at $1 Shipping was $3.

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Apocalypse Pony
      The fake commercial parodies the Hasbro line of toys, My Little Pony, by basing the ponies on the four horsemen of the Apocalypse: War, Pestilence, Famine, and Death. The jingle used during the sketch is also a parody of the theme song for My Little Pony.

    • Golden Girls and the City
      The sketch is an amalgam parody of two classic TV series, Golden Girls and Sex and the City. While the plot is along the lines of "Sex and the City," it features the cast of "Golden Girls," with Bea Arthur's character, Dorothy, in place of the lead character from "Sex and the City," Carrie Bradshaw, who was played by Sarah Jessica Parker.

    • The Last Starfighter
      The segment with the checker-playing kid is a allusion to the movie "The Last Starfighter". There, a teenager named Alex Rogan is recruited by an alien to become a Starfighter after he passes a test disguised as a video game.

    • Pokemon
      The sketch featuring Pikachu was a parody of the Pokemon cartoon series. Other pokemon included in the sketch were Jigglypugg at the beginning and Charizard at the end. In the actual Pokemon series, Pikachu doesn't like to go inside his Pokeball.
