Aardman animations darkest hour.

I remember watching seeing this show on Teletoon as a kid and my parents turning the T.V. off. At the time they refused to explain why I couldn't watch it. As an adult I now understand. It's because it it ASTONISHINGLY racist. How this project managed to get greenlit is baffling. I can only imagine the horror my Chinese-Canadian parents must have felt seeing their children watching this abomination. If I went into heavy detail this would be a full essay but I'll just quickly list some of the worst and most obvious examples. - 'chooks' although used to refer to chickens (plural) is uncannily similar to not one but TWO slurs commonly used for Chinese/Asian people (ch*nks/g**ks). - Chuckie Chan's voice actor 's mock Chinese accent was so offensive that they hired a new one for the US release. - The Fu Manchu moustache, the double buns, the hair chopsticks, the slant eyes. I feel like I shouldn't have to explain. Even if it wasn't horrendously racist it is an overly violent, hideously designed trash-fire of a T.V. show. I wish I could give zero stars. I would not recommend Chop Socky Chooks to anyone of any age. Just rewatch Aardman's Chicken Run.

Not Too Shabby

It's a really random, yet decent cartoon. I recommend it to the older kids that are in the fourth grade and up due to the violence on the show.
