I’ll have a cartoon with my search

According to a piece I just read in the NY Times that search giant Google has apparently struck some sort of deal with Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy:

LOS ANGELES — Google is experimenting with a new method of distributing original material on the Web, and some Hollywood film financiers are betting millions that the company will succeed.

In September, Seth MacFarlane, creator of “Family Guy” on television, will unveil a carefully guarded new project called “Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy.” Unlike “Family Guy,” which is broadcast on Fox, this animation series will appear exclusively on the Internet.

Apparently this web-only content has been described “animated versions of the one-frame cartoons you might see in The New Yorker, only edgier.”

Thanks, Scott.

Tommy, you do know what they say about curiosity and that darn cat?

Tommy said...

Hopefully I have those 9 lives to fall back on, but if not, 'He loves you'. *Runs*

Cute.

Still, it is always important to remember, that while it was curiosity that killed the cat. It was satisfaction that brought it back.
