MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy gets some big numbers
Fourteen million. That's not the number of dollars that are being lost in the stock market every second (I'm sure it's much, much more). It's actually the number of views that Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy reached during three weeks on the Interweb. Now, if he only got those numbers during the initial run of Family Guy on FOX.
To those that are totally lost because you've been staring at your 401K numbers for the last month, Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy launched on YouTube on September 10th. Sponsored by Burger King, it featured original animated content from Seth MacFarlane and his gang of miscreants. In a press release from Media Rights Capital, Cavalcade became the number one most-viewed channel on the video website a mere 48 hours after its launch. Since then, it has garnered not only the 14 million views mentioned above but 100,000 subscribers to the 'sethcomedy' channel. Making it one of the most subscribed YouTube channels of all time.
Since Cavalcade's premiere, four more shorts have been added to the channel. A total of 50 are planned to be released. Out of those four the short titled 'Adopted' is the best. The dialogue is all pretty serious between a son and his parents. But you don't listen to the dialogue. Instead, you question the fact that the parents' nipples stick out five feet in front of them at all times. That makes it all the more funny. That, and their son's original name of Albert Horsefeet Turdsneeze. You can probably figure out how the it all turns out.
