** SantaClaus is either a drug lord or a BadAss that kicks Coco-Cola executives' asses for using his likeness without his consent. He is not ''jolly'' at all. In fact, Santa Claus should be feared in the Robot Chicken universe.

** Then you have fans who think the show has devolved into "''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' [[RecycledInSpace with action figures]] [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks and puppets.]]" Not in any way helped by increased appearances by Seth [=MacFarlane=].

Added DiffLines:

*** Another sketch featured an OverlyLongGag of Pikachu and Squirtle carrying on a conversation in PokemonSpeak, only for Squirtle to become enraged and yell at the audience to "read a book."

** As Palpatine descends to his doom, he decides to make amends with Jar-Jar and apologizes for manipulating him into giving him the emergency powers which did a great deal of paving the way for the Empire. Jar-Jar responds by laughing at the idea that Palpatine manipulated him, and dons a Sith cloak and laughs maniacally. In the finals days before the release of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', a theory suggesting Jar-Jar was the ''true'' evil Sith antagonist of the franchise ran wild across the Internet.

** The "Forgotten 90s Cartoon Characters" skit includes a poster that says "Flint, Michigan: We'll try harder". This came out years before the massive water contamination crisis there.

** The ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' parody in season 6 is rife with TheyJustDidntCare, despite the game having been out for 5 years and still extremely popular by the time the episode aired. The skit starts out promising with a recreation of the class selection screen, then it goes downhill from there. The Demoman and Pyro are generic white mercs, when their defining traits is that the Demoman is the TokenMinority and the Pyro is TheFaceless, the characters all have realistic weapons when the game is well-known for its cartoonish art style, the Soldier and Medic both wield [=SMGs=], a weapon used only by the Sniper, and the Medic shoots the Nerd to death when they're on the same team; friendly fire ''is'' possible in-game, but it needs to be turned on by a server admin, and it never is due to the game's {{griefer}} population. Less reprehensible is that the camera doesn't switch to third-person when the Nerd is killed.
