New Bizarro Cartoon = Xavier: Renegade Angel

Last night I watched a new episode (my first) of "Xavier: Renegade Angel" on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. A bigfoot with reverse knees, a snake arm, a beak nose, and two different-colored eyes goes around saying nonsense not unlike certain "wise men" as featured in such films as "Mystery Men." Eventually Xavier meets a rich brat not unlike the one in "The Toy," starring Richard Pryor.

The rich child says certain oddball things like how pain is a myth invented by lazy workers, and how hardships are bogus, and blah blah blah. So Xavier wishes to educate the kid, and he gives him his own personal vision quest. The kid's consciousness immediately shifts from reality to some alternate reality, where he meets a Native American. The kid is pretty brash, and opposed to learning a lesson. Suddenly, 6 months go by, and the kid is shown in a genuine state of suffering. Bam! Back to the real world, where no time has passed at all.

That really blew my mind that the kid lived out 6 months of soul breakage in an instant. But the positive was that his new perspective caused him to seek an end to worldwide suffering.

I enjoyed the positive idea of curing suffering, but there was a lot of insane stuff in that show. Another idea that I almost began to consider legit was how every happy moment in one person's life coincides with a sad moment in another. It almost made sense... but not quite.
