It's a shame this cost 15 dollars. Its running-length is less than an hour, and there really are no special features to make up for it, other than a look at the premiere, which, of course, is about as thrilling as it sounds. What the creators really should have done was added the "cavalcade" in as an extra, then went back and made something that's actually good, and worth spending 15-20 bucks on, for the feature. Rent, don't buy this one.

I've been a fan of Seth for years and I looked forward to this disk to be released. But now that I've watched it I feel cheated. It would be more accurate to title this, "Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Bits not Funny Enough to be on the Least-Funny Episodes of Family Guy." I got a few *slight* grins out of it (very slight) but mostly I found myself thinking how I had just wasted $15. If you really feel you *have* to see this, either rent it or look for it in the dollar bin around mid-summer. Or maybe even next month. What a rip.

Long story short: this DVD is a ripoff. If you want to maintain respect for Family Guy and American Dad or even Seth MacFarlane, don't buy this DVD.

After about 10 minutes of unfunny, poorly written, timewasting vignettes, I knew I had wasted my money, but forced myself to watch the whole thing so I could write a proper review.

It won't take long to write because it won't take long to describe what's on this DVD: nothing funny or interesting, or even close to the quality of Family Guy or American Dad or the Stewie DVD that came out a few years ago.

This DVD is sparsely populated with what seem like extras that they found on the cutting room floor and decided to put together and put Seth's name on it and trick people into buying it based on his prior reputation.

Well, Seth, I will definitely think twice before I buy any more DVD's that you have attached yourself to in any way. I literally would feel less stupid if I deposited money into a random bank account and waited for that exiled Nigerian prince to give me the $20 million promised me in an email.

Let me start by saying, I'm a HUGE fan of just about anything Seth MacFarlane puts his name on. I was REALLY looking forward to this coming out on Blu-Ray and I was expecting bright colors and razor-sharp clarity. Unfortunately, that's not the case here. Every site I looked on before this officially came out had a different aspect ratio listed for this title.

The truth is, its a lame 1.33:1 full screen presentation that is, at best, as good looking as a standard DVD upscalled to HD. Simply meh. The very few special features that ARE included are in 480p. I'm really surprized they bothered to include a DTS Master Audio track on this title, because the majority of the skits are just two people talking.

In the end, I can't reccomend buying this on Blu-Ray without feeling bad. Buy the DVD version. It will look basically the same and you'll be able to play it on just about any computer or set top player.

First off, I must say that this DVD is much better then the Family Guy episodes lately. For me, a lot of the jokes fell flat though. I was never grossed out or offended. I just felt that some of the jokes were so blunt, that they weren't as funny they could of been being a little more subtle. The frog scene is a good example of this. If you like Family Guy but don't like some of the raunchier stuff in the show, then this isn't for you. If I said there was nothing great about this DVD I would be lying though, because some of the sketches are pretty funny. One of the memorable scenes for me was the Wiley Coyote scene.

This is a good DVD for fans to rent for a one time watch. What keeps me from giving this 4 or 5 stars is the fact that most of it is just 50 minutes of thoughts that should of been kept in Seth's head or used in Family Guy episodes as filler instead of a country song.

I had high hopes for this DVD - The Family Guy creator without the restrictions of network TV. The DVD consists of a bunch of short "skits". A few are very funny, most are boring, and a few are downright stupid. For example, there is a skit of a Scotsman watching movies and commenting on them - it gets old after the first movie, and then they come back to it later in the DVD for more yawns. There are a lot of infantile sex scenes, which would not necessarily be bad if they could be done with the genius twist that Seth usually has. Unfortunately they come off as being written by a 12 year old, and probably only a 12 year old would find them amusing. I now have the feeling that Seth is more funny when he is trying to get around the TV censors than when he is not restricted at all. I hope he got this out of his system so he can try to get Family Guy back on track at last.

VERY DISAPPOINTING!

Wow. Words can't describe how bad this DVD is. Honestly, I just feel embarrassed for Seth. There isn't a single funny moment in the entire 50 minutes. It's worse than the new seasons of Family Guy. I pity anyone who enjoys this worthless excuse for comedy, and plead that you check out something more worthwhile. Check out Moral Orel, Frisky Dingo, or The Venture Bros. Hell, watch Squidbillies. This is a worthless excuse for "cartoon comedy."

But hey, at least American Dad is still kinda funny.

I don't write many reviews but I felt compelled to help others trying to decide to purchase/watch this DVD. First of all, almost every clip has profanity and sexual humor in it so it's definitely not for kids. I sat through the entire DVD (about 100 or so clips/jokes) and can't recall *one* clip that was truly funny. It's a mess of a DVD that was apparently made to cash in on Family Guy's popularity. My recommendation is that you forget this DVD even exists as you'll very likely regret wasting both 54 minutes of your life and $15.

I'm a huge Family Guy fan but this just doesn't work. It is just a bunch of 5 second clips. It's completely random. These kinds of clips work when they are inserted in the Family Guy stories but on their own it isn't very funny. And there is nothing very shocking at all. There is some swearing that you wouldn't hear on normal TV but you can get that by watching any South Park episode.

Wow, how can I illustrate the depths of my disappointment with this purchase? I spent my money happily on the Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy, expecting to be delighted and amused like I always am by Family Guy and American Dad. Sadly, I received a steaming pile of junk. This is not worth the DVD it was printed on- I think I laughed at two of the sketches. TWO! In an hour! Uncensored in this case does NOT mean funny.
