Robot Chicken’s Matthew Senreich, John Harvatine IV & Eric Towner: The CFQ Interview

And you thought stop-motion figures taking swift kicks to the crotch defined the work of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the people behind Adult Swim’s ROBOT CHICKEN and TITAN MAXIMUM. Not quite, Chuck-o — the studio is turning out an increasing variety of shows, including its most recent, FRIENDSHIP ALL-STARS OF FRIENDSHIP, a web series that tracks the genial relationships between such BFFs as John Lasseter and Luis Guzmán, and Batmen Michael Keaton and George Clooney.

The most high-profile face behind Stoopid Buddy is Seth Green, but joining him in piloting the company are Matthew Senreich, Eric Towner, and John Harvatine IV. I got to speak with Matt, Eric and Harv (as his friends call him) to discuss FRIENDSHIP’s sunny worldview, the pressures of Emmy season, and the Freudian implications of show titles.
