Production logos

Every episode of Robot Chicken from seasons 14 displays one of many still Stoopid Monkey production logos following the credits; each depicts a cartoon monkey performing an obviously foolish or life-threatening activity or the aftermath of suicide as an irritated Seth Green is heard saying, "Stupid monkey." Each Stoopid Monkey card was drawn by artist and actor Adam Talbott.[citation needed] On Titan Maximum and early episodes of Robot Chicken's fifth season, the logo is the monkey's shining silver head smiling with the shining Stoopid Monkey text below it. On later episodes of Robot Chicken from season 5 onward, the logo returned to a similar concept as the first, but the titular monkey was redesigned to be cuter, despite in season 7 a still variant showcasing only the company logo was used.
