    Here is my review for one of the funniest episodes of Robot Chicken I've ever seen. It is also one of the first episodes of Robot Chicken I've ever seen. After seeing this episode on TV, I began to like this show even more. In this episode, there is a sketch that has an animated look of one of my favorite comic strips "Calvin and Hobbes". I was really amazed when I saw this sketch because I have never seen an animated version of Calvin and Hobbes before in my life. Another sketch that made this episode good to watch was the one with Mario and Luigi in the world of "Grand Theft Auto". Every second of this sketch cracked me up, especially the scene of Mario devouring a drug mushroom, thinking it was a power-up just like the ones in the Mushroom Kingdom, and getting his mind really messed up (the result was Mario driving over pedestrians, thinking they were coins). At the end (after Mario and Luigi get shot at), Yoshi ends up in the world of "Resident Evil". I love this episode; it rocks!moreless
  • If and when they make a "best of Robot Chicken" collection, this episode will definitely be included. The sketches were great, especially because they were fairly relevant. This episode has easily become one of my favorites.moreless

    Just about all of these sketches were top notch. "Calvin and Hobbes" was by far the best sketch, playing on the flaw of the parents' responsiblity. "Montezuma's Revenge" was an excellent recurring sketch, the best since "Barney" was done in a previous episode. The quick "Karate Kid" parody was great. The Mario-Luigi sketch was awesome. As a fan of video games, I thoroughly enjoyed this parody from both the aspects of Mario games and the Grand Theft Auto series. The "Cameron Diaz" sketch was a little dated, but still pretty funny. The "New York City" chili sketch was a great homage to those old Pace Picante Sauce commercials, and probably my favorite short sketch ever. The Frankenstein sketch is classic to the series' tone. Those are the reasons why I'm giving this episode a ten!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In the Calvin and Hobbes parody, Calvin is shown receiving Hobbes as a birthday present from his parents. This contradicts the actual strip, which revealed that Calvin actually found and caught Hobbes in the wild.

    • Yoshi can't read...
      If you look closely, the bottom half of the sign for Raccoon City reads

      RESIDENTS: EVIL
      POP 110,000 AND DYING

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Calvin: This is some Bull S**t!
      Hobbes: Yeah!
      Psychiatrist: Who were you talking to?
      Calvin: To Hobbes, my pet tiger, can`t you see him?
      Psychiatrist: That's just a stuffed animal.
      Calvin: No he`s not! He`s real! Get him Hobbes!
      (Attacking and violence sounds)
      Blood is everywhere! The vicious tiger shows no mercy!
      Psychiatrist: I see...

    • Mario: (driving after eating a drug mushroom) Ya ha ha! I feel-a so funny! Look! There's-a coins everywhere! I'm-a rich!
      Luigi: Mario! No!
      (Mario runs over all the pedestrians that he sees as coins.)
      Luigi: I think I should-a drive!

    • Mario: (after Luigi gets shot at) He's-a marinating... In his own Ragu... You killed-a my brother! You sons of a b*tches!

    • Cheerleader: Come on team! We really rock!
      Check it out, I have a...

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Montezuma's Revenge
      While the term Montezuma's Revenge has taken on different interpretations, the sketches in this episode take on the original meaning, which is basically "traveller's diarrhea." It is caused by a bacterium strain found in food or water to which local residents are immune, while foreigners are infected.

    • Calvin & Hobbes
      The sketch featuring a blonde kid and his stuffed tiger is a parody of the infamous comic strip, Calvin and Hobbes.

      The sketch attempts to see the situation applied to a "real" kid's life, where Calvin's parents take responsibility for his overactive imagination.

    • Karate Kid
      The short sketch with a guy knocked over while trying to keep his balance on a tree stump is a parody of the 1984 movie Karate Kid.

      The song that is played in the sketch is a parody of the movie's theme song, "You're the Best" by Joe Esposito.

    • "...Straight from New York City!"
      The scene with the man making chili (from New York City!) is a parody of Pace Picante Sauce's old TV advertisements where the other cowboys would become upset to find out that the other hot sauce used was made from New York City, threatening to take the cook's life. The sketch takes things one step further.

    • Grand Theft Mario

      This sequence is a cross between two popular Video Game Franchises, Super Mario Bros. and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Also, at the end of segment Yoshi visits a zombie infested Racoon City, which is the location set for the Resident Evil series, namely Resident Evil 2.

      The stars that appear in the top left of the screen are similar to the Grand Theft Auto series' police level. As the Italian brothers commit more criminal acts, the more stars light up.

      Elements from the Mario games, such as smashing turtles, smashing bricks, and eating mushrooms are parodied in this segment to fit the "real-life" aspect of the Grand Theft Auto series. The go-kart the Mario Brothers ride on, as well as the setting prior to entering Vice City, are elements from Nintendo's Mario Kart series.
