  • Controversial, bizarre, unconventional, and funny! An absolute winner in every way! :idea:

    10
    The best part about every new episode of "Robot Chicken" is that viewers have no idea of where its going to go. Sometimes it parodies science-fiction, sometimes it parodies the horror genre, sometimes it makes fun of the movies, and many times it makes fun of celebrities, T.V. shows and cartoon characters! Sometimes a sketch can be controversial, bizarre, unconventional, and funny all at the same time! The movie parody of "Idle Nuts" was one of those sketches (and I'm not talking about food! :lol: ) It's insane to think that someone would honestly have their family jewels run over for $2 million, and of course it all gets spent to have a family jewel transplant. And if that wasn't bad enough, the family jewels are possessed and starts to kill people! :!: This stuff just Can't be made up! And Seth Green even references himself as a zombie with a jar on his head from "Idle Hands." The possessed famly jewels are finally destroyed in a microwave. But the insanity won't stop anytime soon once Bill Gates offers a $1 Billion to the guy who takes insane bets, and Bill Gates has an offer that while demeaning, is very hard to refuse! :) And Jason, the Red Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger even makes an appearance in this hilarious episode! :D While this show might not be for everybody (like people without a sense of humor) the people who this show is for will be sure to laugh at this well-written show! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The men who bet money on one man's testicles are part of a non-traditional fraternity, Kappa Omega Kappa. You will notice the Greek letters when they're making the bet and when the man wakes up to find his friends are dead.

    • The figure used for the Red Power Ranger in the NEWS sketch is the same action figure from the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers toy series. This is noticeable because of the looks of the figure, especially the lines in the chest area, where the head can flip from masked to unmasked, as a special feature of the action figure.

    • Stoopid Monkey logo: The Stoopid Monkey is trying to fly off a cliff with homemade wings.

    • Idle Nuts is a Direct Parody of The 1999 Horror/Comedy Film Idle Hands Starring Seth Green and Jessica Alba about a Teenager's hand Possessed by a Demonic Force that Uncontrollably Kills People,Also in the Movie Seth Green's Character Dies and Comes back as a Zombie with a shattered bottle stabbed in his head.

      The "Nuts belonged to a Serial Killer" Concept was a reference to the 1991 Horror/Thriller Film Body Parts in where a College Teacher loses his hand in a car accident and gets a new hand surgically grafted to him that develops homicidal Impulses into his body only to find out that Hand once belonged to a Serial Killer that died on Death Row.

    • A Robot Chicken Factoids card aired with the premiere of this episode explaining the following:

      - In the Idle Nuts sketch, the amount of money Mike says he'd need was his actual response when asked the same question.

      - In the Action News sketch, the Spy Hunter reference represents the way car chases are covered as real news in L.A.

      - In the Porn Worm sketch, George Bush is, as always, wearing a flight suit - something the writers heard Will Ferrell would do if he had stayed on SNL.

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Power Rangers

    • Idle Nuts
      The title of the scene, "Idle Nuts," parodies the 1999 movie, "Idle Hands," which had a cast including Seth Green and Jessica Alba as well. The scene where the man tries to "microwave" his appendages is a direct parody of the same movie, where the boy tries to microwave his "evil" hand.

    • Underdog
      The character, "Underdog," used in the news skit, is a character based on the 1960's cartoon of the same name. Underdog himself is an anthropomorphic parody of superheroes, like Superman.

    • Neverending Party
