* Tropers/MelancholyUtopia: To me, this show is sometimes funny, sometimes terrible, sometimes meh. Some of you might think me weird, but I didn't care much for the ''Toy Story 4'' skit. Yeah, it was terrible, but I didn't have that a strong reaction to it. I did, however, for the "Pubescent Rodents" sketch. Essentially, some girl groupies want to have sex with Alvin and the Chipmunks. Actually, only one of them wants to, the other two being reasonably disturbed by the idea. However, she ends up with Alvin in his hotel room, and starts to regret her decision. At first she wants to go through with it because she doesn't want to be seen as a sissy by her friends, but eventually, she aborts her plan anyway by trying to call them...then we get a scene of her friends riding the other two chipmunks on the same bed. The end. Next sketch. I get the joke, I get what the punchline was supposed to be...it just wasn't funny. As someone who's struggling to not look at {{Shotacon}}, it triggered my guily conscience. I know what they're trying to do, I know that they like crossing the line for the sake of their sketches...but it's exactly those sketches that are sorted into the "terrible" pile whenever I watch the show, at least when it isn't done in a clever and tasteful way. I can take sex jokes, just don't ever mix it with pedophilia and bestiality at the same time, if it's only for the sake of being shocking instead of actually funny. That's the kind of crap I only want to give credit to ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' for having, a show I hate even more.

** Tropers/{{fairygirl567}}: It came straight out nowhere too. At first, I thought it'd be like Didi taking the kids home and wondering how they keep getting out with the other parents agreeing with her and then maybe concluding that they're just adventurous children. But then they have Didi, blame Stu for being the neglectful parent when she's just as neglectful! At least Stu has an excuse, he's an inventor and has to spend time making new toys to help keep their house! I'm not sure what Didi does, but most of the time she's busy taking parenting advice from a crackpot psychiatrist. Even if they had done this same sketch with Angelica's parents or even Lil and Phil's parents, it still would've been a jarring and disturbing sketch because none of the parents have shown any abusive towards their spouse, depicting Didi of all people, as this domestically abusive shrew made me realize that they did this stupid joke because they thought that since the premise of children going on wild adventures warranted an abusive parents sketch. Good job, writers. There's a way to do this too, but not this poorly written.

** Tropers/{{fairygirl567}}: The jab they took at Daria was really uncalled for especially when they started out by calling her gross and then depicted her as an overweight man because she decided to get a sex change, then having Micheal Moore puke after hearing her explain why she decided to do it. Daria wasn't the most attractive character, but she didn't need to be because she was known for her wit, sarcastic tone and dark outlook, but she continued to go about her life. They've made jabs at other 90s and 80s characters, which they've done well at, but this just felt way too mean-spiriuted and unfunny.

** Tropers/KrazyTVWatcher: After looking at that sketch, I agree with you. If anything, the writers of this sketch tried way too hard to be funny, yet I can already feel that this sketch evoked a lot of negative reactions out of Christians in the world today. This is one of the Christianity-related sketches I hate on ''Robot Chicken''.

*** Tropers/{{Ironballs16}} - this is also a ShoutOut to ''Literature/TheGreenMile'', [[https://youtu.be/7s9RYLabxCg where an inmate meets a similar end]] when Percy, the SadisticGuard, "[[BlatantLies forgets]]" to dampen the sponge, and they ''have'' to go through with the execution because stopping before the inmate is dead would have violated laws against cruel & unusual punishment.

** Tropers/{{Pgj1997}}: What really gets to me is the title of the skit, and its official description. The title is "A Rugrats Joke" and the description reads "Here you go, 90s kids". This bias against the 1990s needs to stop. Either hire writers that know more about the source material than you do, or just ignore it altogether. Blindly attacking franchises isn't funny in the slightest, and PanderingToTheAudience like this will most likely kill most if not all off your viewership. I know Robot Chicken is pretty much made for raping childhoods, but at least be tasteful about it.
