''Chop Socky Chooks'' (2008) was a short-lived CGI cartoon produced by Aardman Animations and Teletoon that aired on Creator/CartoonNetwork. It focused on three heroes, Chick P, K.O. Joe and Chuckie Chan, protecting the citizens of Wasabi World, a shopping mall type city that is ruled by the evil Dr. Wasabi.

...Oh, and did we mention our heroes are ''fighting chickens?''

!!Tropes the show includes:
%%* AfroAsskicker: K.O. Joe
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: In "Snake in the Class" after the Chooks' cover is blown Chuckie is mobbed by a group of women once they know he's a wanted fugitive.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Chuckie Chan and several supporting characters.
* BerserkButton: Do NOT mock Chick P's father, especially to her face. [[spoiler:Dead-Eye learns the hard way. If she wasn't Chick P's childhood friend, Chick P might actually have killed her]].
%%* BigBad: Dr. Wasabi
* BigBadWannabe: Kobura briefly took over in "Snake in the Class".
* BlatantLies: In "Snakes in the Class", Dr. Wasabi claimed he always knew who the Chop Socky Chooks really were.
* BlindingBangs: Oni[=/=]Deadeye. When she's Oni they cover her MadEye, but when she's Deadeye they cover her normal eye.
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: At one point, Doctor Wasabi tries to decide on which deadly trap to use.

-->''"Shark pit...secret catapult...secret shark catapult..."''

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In "Kobura Strikes!", the Chooks have been poisoned and must complete challenges to find an antidote. Joe says he "could go for a tall glass of antidote," and a woozy Chick P replies "None for me, thanks, I'm driving."
* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Near the end of the series, the heroes finally have Wasabi right where they want him, they are just about to defeat him once and for all, until Chuckie enforces this trope on them. (Though this was more to preserve Status Quo, many may see this as a CopOut)
* IronicEcho: In "Snake in the Class", combined with CaptainObvious:
-->'''Chick P:''' Looks like someone blew our cover.\\
'''K.O. Joe:''' No, you think?\\\
'''K.O. Joe:''' I knew it! It was ''[Kobura]'' who blabbed our secret identities!\\
'''Chick P:''' No, you think?
* LampshadeHanging: A young Kobi gets bitten by cobras in "Kobura Strikes!". When he gains snake-like properties because of it, we get this:
-->Chuckie Chan: The cobra venom had...deadened [Kobi's] reflexes.\\
