McCarthy is known for shocking, sexually charged pieces that feature benign cartoon and pop-culture characters such as Olive Oyl and Santa Claus, among others in a bacchanalia of blood and feces.

His 1974 video Hot Dog shoots to the heart of the adolescent "gross-out" as McCarthy tapes his penis into a hot dog bun, then packs his pie hole full of franks and wraps himself in gauze. 

Another piece from the 70s called Sailor's Meat finds the artist dresse (showing 500 of 1502 characters).
