We study theoretically spatiotemporal pulse dynamics in cubic nonlinear media with instant response, nonresonant absorption and normal group velocity dispersion and reveal new features of harmonic generation when the pulse duration is reduced, including the suppression of third-harmonic generation for single-cycle light pulses.
