Storyline

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 Jwelch5742

Did You Know?

Trivia

On Family Guy: Love Thy Trophy (2000)", Stewie's ABC blocks pyramidally spell REDRUM, a reference to Stephen King's novel and Stanley Kubrick's movie "The Shining (1980)" where REDRUM was MURDER spelled backwards. Which is what Stewie plans to do to Lois. See more »

The SImpsons?
20 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can see Seth whateverhisnameis pitching this show to Fox.

Seth: I have an idea about an animated average family that get into a lot of wacky adventures.

Fox: Like the Simpsons? Seth: No. The Dad of this family will be a sports loving beer drinking loud mouth moron who's stupidity gets him into all kinds of trouble.

Fox: Like Homer Simpson? Seth: No. This guy will have hair and wear glasses and have a different name. The Mom will be long-suffering and have a weird voice.

Fox: Like Marge Simpson? Seth: No. Her voice will be whiny and annoying and unpleasant to hear. There will be three kids one of them a baby.

Fox: Like the Simpson kids? Seth: No. The oldest one, a boy like Bart Simpson, won't get into trouble he'll just be annoyingly stupid with an annoying voice to match. The middle one, a girl like Lisa Simpson, will be boring as hell, but the baby for some unexplainable reason will be super smart and always getting into trouble. Like Bart and Lisa but it will be one person. And people will be able to understand him which won't make any sense since he's just a baby. See they'll be different than the Simpson's kids. Also I'll threw a talking dog into the mix who is smarter than the rest of the family but oddly still hangs around them. See that'll really make it different than the Simpsons? Fox: Good Lord, we can rip off an already popular show and sell double the advertising space and DVD's. Brilliant. You're copying the Simpsons but with just enough changes to fool the sheep.

Seth: Well, thank you. I've already got enough third-grade potty humour and sexual innuendo lined up for a couple of season's worth of scripts. That way people will say it's "fresh, cutting edge and outside the box," plus we can watch the first couple of seasons of the Simpsons and change the wording to a lot of their jokes, people won't remember that far back. Of course we won't be able to get any real name brand stars for guest appearances because they always go on the Simpsons or King of the Hill. So to save on the budget we'll have the same couple of people imitate stars, they won't even have to change their voices.

Fox: Brilliant, we have a deal. Now we just need a "King of the Hill" rip-off and life would be grand.
