The 100th episode of  Robot Chicken, the Emmy Award®-winning series,premieres Sunday, Jan. 15 at 11:30 p.m.  (ET/PT) on Adult Swim. Created by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich and their  Stoopid Monkey Productions banner, Robot  Chicken uses stop-motion animation to bring pop-culture parodies to  life in a modern take on the variety/sketch show format.
“I’m proud and a bit shocked that we  reached this milestone,” said Green. “It’s great to work with people you like  and we are thrilled that the show’s fans continue to support our show and that  our guest stars still like to come and play with  us.”
To celebrate this momentous milestone  for the series, Adult Swim has launched a five-day live action web cam event  that asks and answers the probing question: ‘What happens when a robot and a  live chicken are left alone in a motel room?’ Fans can watch all the action  online starting today at RobotChicken.com, as a sweeping  soap opera style romance unfolds before their eyes. The event will feature  special guest star appearances throughout the week and viewers can have a say in  what happens in the story via Facebook voting and posting  comments, including naming the chicken. Fans can also follow the action on Twitter (#chickencamlove). Green,  Senreich and Robot Chicken head  writers/executive producers Tom Root and Douglas Goldstein, writer/producer Mike  Fasolo, writers Zeb Wells, Matt Beans, Jessica Gao and executive producers Eric  Towner and John Harvatine IV will be sending in their reactions via Skype all  week long.
“Adult Swim always  seems to venture into new territory with their promotions and we love to follow  them down every crazy road or in this case, to a chicken-sized motel room,” said  Senreich.
  In the 100th episode, the  creators imagine what the movie Sex and the  City 3 would be like if made more guy friendly, Yogi Bear battles  with the Power Rangers from Jellystone Park, find out why no one cares about  Woody Woodpecker anymore and see the nail-biting, hair-raising, super big finish  of season five in Robot Chicken’s  100th episode finale!
Stoopid Monkey Productions is  the production company founded by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, Creators and Executive Producers of the Emmy-winning  Robot Chicken, the highest-rated  original series on Adult Swim, Titan  Maximum, and the online series, Stoopid Monkey on their own YouTube  channel.  They recently joined  with Buddy Systems to create Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, a Los Angeles-based stop-motion  animation studio.  Green and Senreich also write, direct  and provide voices for their shows.  Stoopid Monkey is also consulting on the  upcoming animated Star Wars  comedy series for Lucasfilm, Ltd. and writing/executive producing the ABC-TV  pilot, Ex-Comm.
