Vulgar Humor Delivers Nothing New, 10 April 2010
Author: Andrew Pelechaty from Brisbane, Australia

In the world of animated comedy, Seth MacFarlane is probably the busiest at the moment. Not only is he behind three prime-time shows ('Family Guy', 'American Dad', 'The Cleveland Show') he also does voice work for 'Robot Chicken' (the side-project of his 'Family Guy' cast-mate Seth Green).

The 'Cavalcade' was originally broadcast in 2008 in an online format. Away from commercial pressures, Seth uses this freedom to deliver sketches with an abundance of swearing, violence, sex scenes/references and gross-out moments, as well as the usual pop-culture reference : The Flinstones, Super Mario Bros, Looney Tunes, as well as – surprise, surprise - a number of eighties movies) and you get the feeling it's something he wanted to do for a while. The style of humour is far more vulgar than 'Family Guy', and at times seems there purely for shock value, lacking the cleverness (and nostalgia value) of 'Robot Chicken'. The problem is, in a society desensitized to all but the most explicit content,it's hard to get away with shock value for the sake of it. Most of the punchlines tend to be fairly predictable (a depressed Wile E. Coyote turns to Jesus, a horse in a bar is actually Sarah Jessica Parker, Helena Bonham Carter is mistaken for a corpse etc).

It's fair to say this collection could even pass as a montage of 'Family Guy' cut-away gags, especially with a lot of 'Family Guy' voice talent (including MacFarlane, Alex Borstein and Green), and guest appearances from Gilbert Gottfried and Will Wheadon, both playing themselves. Gottfried's performance is a highlight, willingly taking the mickey out of himself.

Overall, 'Cavalcade' is not one of Seth MacFarlane's best works. While you can appreciate it is a passion project for him, fans of his previous work have seen it all before (or variants of it) and the reliance on shock value doesn't have the same impact.
