It’s not enough to have the used-to-be good “Family Guy” and the still-sucks-my-ass “American Dad” on TV. No sir, not for creator Seth MacFarlane. So he’s taking himself online with “Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy,” a series of 50 animated shorts which will be published by Google and pushed out to YouTube and other websites, starting this Wednesday, plus it’ll show up in the ad spaces of some relevant pages (like Maxim and Fandango).
And what will this cartoon be, you ask? Same crap, different format:
In the Google series, “Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy,” fans of his TV shows will see some familiar themes, including celebrity takedowns and surreal scenarios. In one “Cavalcade” sketch the actor Matthew McConaughey (voiced by another actor, Seth Green) is adrift in a life raft, nattering on about his easy success and “metal-like abdominal muscles” as a fellow castaway devours him limb by limb.
Thanks, but no thanks.
