* Tropers/DonEast: The final skit of the episode ''Kramer Vs. Showgirls'' was another follow-up to Michael Moore's "where are they now" skit. This one was about 90's cartoons and boy does it feel like they have something against the decade. ShallowParody doesn't even begin to describe the scene with ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'', the ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' part was disgusting beyond words. But the thing that pushed me into writing this entry is what they did to ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''. Long story short, financial issues force DW to sell his body to a Chinese restaurant (just roll with it) and gets cooked in an oven alive, and on top of that this all happened in front of his daughter, Gosalyn. If that wasn't enough, at the end of the sketch, Michael Moore and Gosalyn were at said restaurant and the cook served them the now cooked Darkwing, with his head still attached. It then gets chopped off in a gag that they ripped off wholesale from ''AChristmasStory''. You know what? Fuck you, ''Robot Chicken'' writers. You don't mess with a man's childhood like that. This is one of the worst skits in the history of the show and that's saying something!

* Tropers/TheDogSage: The "Potter, You Fool" skit from the ''Some Like It Hitman'' episode pretty much embodies all of these. A potentially funny skit ruined by unnecessary {{gorn}} (Neville's hand transforming into a monkey head that mauls him and Ron's teeth shooting from his gums/head exploding), TheyJustDidntCare (Hermione and Harry moving to America to go to a public school), and CriticalResearchFailure (Hermione being cyber-bullied on Website/{{Facebook}}, even though Website/{{Facebook}} didn't exist in the early-mid 1990s when the Literature/HarryPotter books take place), and DudeNotFunny (Hermione commits suicide due to the aforementioned cyber-bullying.)

* cricri3007: The Star Wars sketch where Boba shows up drunk for the confrontation at Jabba's barge (Can't remember wich season, sorry). There is BlackComdy and then there's ''skinning Chewbaccka, wearing his still bloody back as a cape and taunting a blind Han about it''. And no, the fact that Boba was piss drunk or that it was AllADream does 'NOT'' make it better.

* Mudapa: For me, it's "Anime Christmas". The amount of Critical Research Failure in this towards Dragon Ball is ridiculous. The plot follows Goku and Goten/Gohan enjoying Christmas. [[ExcusePlot Santa comes and tells them that the Nutcracker, Drummer Boy & Composite Santa are causing trouble. Goku and Goten/Gohan are told to stop them.]] So, they get spotted by those Villains and engage in a fight. When the Drummer Boy attempts to attack (By drumming),[[CriticalResearchFailure Goku yells "Spirit Bomb!" and Gohan/Goten yells some sort of Gibberish,even though it looks like a Kamehameha!]] But, it gets worse. So, Ms.Claus is revealed to be the villain, transforming into a monster, Which they end up defeating. Ms.Claus explodes into a Snowflake. Which, Goku responds "The Tenkai Ichi Budokai is finally complete." What?! [[CriticalResearchFailure Do you mean the "Tenkaichi Budokai"?! Which means the "Strongest Under The Heavens" and is the name of the Martial Arts Tournament?]] Did they even know anything about Dragon Ball? In fact, it has nothing to do with Anime either! Has a Dragon Ball fan, this is just insulting.

* Tropers/MadMan400096: ''Robot Chicken'' would have been my favorite show if it hadn't been for the Ron Jeremy's Butter sketch from the Season 2 episode ''Easter Basket''. The sketch has some guy [[ADateWithRosiePalms jerking off]], picking up his jizz, [[DudeNotFunny and]] [[VulgarHumor eating]] [[ExtremeOmnivore it!]] The fact that he [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything was actually churning butter]] did nothing to soften the vulgarity of the scene, even to someone like myself who is a fan of ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether''.

* Skullsnsouls91: Removing my former entry for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cwsfd1xhV8c& this fucking sickening sketch]]. This isn't all "MY CHILDHOOD WAS RAPED!" shit. No. [[{{Rugrats}} This was because it was taking a show involving little babies]], and having domestic violence involving one of the mothers (who was one of the nicest characters on the show most of the time) beat the one of the fathers (also one of the nicest) because of neglect that even SHE was fucking guilty of at times, while the babies stood outside of the room they were in. As a person who's had to deal with my father abusing my mother at a young age, usually late at night, and it'd keep me awake too while I cried and shook in fear hoping it'd be over soon; this is a sketch that disgusted and engraged me more than any other moment on this show. Fuck you, Seth, whoever helped write the sketch, and fuck you, ''Robot Chicken''. Peace the fuck out.

Considering that WesternAnimation/RobotChicken's a show that bases its results on many random sketches that can last from a few seconds to a few minutes, you're more likely to find a sketch or two that you didn't like on an episode that you pretty much enjoyed otherwise. These are those sketches.

** eCockpit89: SethGreen must have some irrational hatred of the Mario franchise, because all of the sketches involving it suck. The one that made me swear off the show for good, however, was the most recent one, called "Mario Party". The only good thing in it was the fact that Mario and Luigi didn't get brutally murdered at the end. But the reason it sucks so badly? It's not the sketch itself, which was just as unfunny as any other Mario sketch on the show. It's because they use a lot of toys of the Mario characters that I know for a fact are fake. [[ShoddyKnockoffProduct Counterfeit toys]] on ''RobotChicken''. What. The. Fuck. I'd expect this sort of thing from WebVideo/TheIrateGamer, not someone who claims to be a lover of action figures and has an actual TV show. Y'know what, SethGreen? You can go take all those fake products you bought for this, and shove them all where the sun don't shine!

** @/{{Thepenguinking2}}: I'll gladly third that. I get that they were trying to be creepy there, and while they did a good job, it was too good of one at that. Especially since I had the displeasure of seeing the event at age 9...
