Trivia / Info:

  • The opening sequence was left out of the episode Werewolf vs. Unicorn. The opening credits were appended to the end credits.
  • In Previously On Robot Chicken, a pre-intro skit reveals how the Chicken dies.
  • The opening was Star Wars'd for Robot Chicken: Star Wars.
  • When the show begins another season, the clips on the TV sets change.
  • As explained in the online commentary for Robot Chicken Star Wars episode 2, the only change to the opening was the 2nd Death Star replacing the original.

Goofs / Nitpicks:

  • As pointed out by Douglas Goldstein in the Tapping a Hero Commentary, the Chicken's right ocular clamp is superfluous, as its respective robotic eye is by nature permanently open.
  • In an apparent error, the opening sequence for Drippy Pony aired without any of the opening credits.
  • From seasons six and seven, the Intro has been role reversed, with the mad scientist killed by the falling tv sets, and being turned into a robot and being forced to watch Television.
