If you’re a fan of Adult Swim, then you might have seen some sex dolls on some of their series. They’ve been referenced multiple times on their cartoon programs. Family Guy, American Dad, and even the hit cartoon series Rick and Morty has, at one point in their run, has an episode that’s centered around sex dolls.

What was once an excellent blockbuster flop is now a cult classic in its own right. I mean, it got a 13% score on RottenTomatoes. You can’t get any worse than that. 

Based on the comic character Howard the Duck, the film is weird. Is a world full of anthropomorphic ducks with arms and legs? Yes, I know. Howard lands in Cleveland and then proceeds to rescue rocker Beverly from thugs and bond with her. Beverly then introduces Howard to Phil, who works for Dr. Jenning. The doctor then attempts to return Howard to his world but then proceeds to transfer an evil spirit into his own body. 

How does this correlate with sex dolls? Even I don’t know. I just figured you might want to watch something so mediocre it’s now a cult classic. 

So, there you have it. Though some of you may find the idea of being in a relationship with a sex doll revolting, there’s no getting away from the fact that people can find comfort from robots. And, it doesn’t matter if they’re robots or not. All that matters is that we know that the robots’ age is coming, and everyone would, at one point, form a bond with them.
