Xavier: Renegade Angel
- 2 Seasons
Xavier: Renegade Angel, the original animated series featured in Cartoon Network's late-night block, Adult Swim, follows the adventures of Xavier'a mythical, faun-like creature with a bird's beak for a nose and a snake for his right arm who wanders through the desert in search of his mother and the person who killed his father. During his journey to discover the truth behind his unknown origins, he is transported to various parts of the world where he meets new characters that he either bores or confuses with his narcissistic and self-serving philosophical observations. After which, the character will inform him about an issue or dilemma he or she is dealing with. Then, Xavier will make an attempt to assist them in fixing their problem; however, his desire to help the people he encounters usually causes him to make the situation even worse; creating more chaos than before he arrived. Occasionally, Xavier will have a series of flashbacks, typically showing a younger version of himself alongside his mentor Chief Master Guru'a shaman-like character who takes Xavier in after the death of his father and disappearance of his mother and teaches the young Xavier spiritual and mystical lessons. The young Xavier shows a great deal of admiration for Chief Master Guru, despite the fact that his teacher treats him with cruelty and is typically unkind and rude towards him. Xavier: Renegade Angel is shown through CGI animation and implements quick cut scenes and computer glitches into each episode as a way to present its nonlinear story structure. The show also employs the usage of non sequiturs and philosophical concepts that the show's protagonist delivers throughout the course of every show, as well as humor through homophobia, racism, surrealism, black comedy, as well as jokes geared towards religious ideology.
