Sick, twisted and politically incorrect, the animated series features the adventures of the Griffin family. Endearingly ignorant Peter and his stay-at-home wife Lois reside in Quahog, R.I., and have three kids. Meg, the eldest child, is a social outcast, and teenage Chris is awkward and clueless when it comes to the opposite sex. The youngest, Stewie, is a genius baby bent on killing his mother and destroying the world. The talking dog, Brian, keeps Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting through his own life issues. Written by

"Quahog," the name of the Griffin's hometown, is also the name of an edible clam. Clams are referenced elsewhere in the show. Some examples: The bar the characters frequently visit is called "The Drunken Clam" and the strip club the guys visit on occasion is called "The Fuzzy Clam". See more

I didn't give those porn magazines to the kids. The truth is Lois. Lois, Lois, Lois, Ah! Oh, crap. The truth is I love my wife Lois very much. I gave those porn mags to my son. I wanted to teach him about treating women as objects. If anything I don't deserve your respect.

Yes, no and screw it, I resign.
Every few seasons, the instrumental version of the title theme that plays over the end credits is replaced with a new arrangement. To date there have been 5 main arrangements of the closing credits theme (this, of course, does not include "one-shot" versions that are relative to a specific episode.) See more
