Seth MacFarlane’s AdSense Cartoons Now Available

A while ago the New York Times reported creator of US series “Family Guy” Seth MacFarlane would create some cartoons to be distributed on Google’s AdSense ad network. The NYT wrote that “Advertising will be incorporated into the clips in varying ways. In some cases, there will be ’preroll’ ads, which ask viewers to sit through a TV-style commercial before getting to the video. Some advertisers may opt for a banner to be placed at the bottom of the video clip or a simple ’brought to you by’ note at the beginning.”

Now, you can view the first of these “Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy” episodes at YouTube. I haven’t seen any in live website integration yet, but if you do please add a screenshot and link. (The clips below are presented by Burger King, whose mascot is the king in the beginning... do you desire to eat greasy fast food after watching these?)

“Super Mario Rescues The Princess”

“A Dog on the $25,000 Pyramid”
