The Griffin household includes two teenagers, a cynical dog who is smarter than everyone else, and an evil baby who makes numerous attempts to eradicate his mother. Heading up this eclectic household is Peter Griffin. Peter does his best to do what's right for the family, but along the way, he makes mistakes that are the stuff of legends. Written by
The most frequent animation error seen in the show is the appearance of the eyebrows (and some cases the eyes). The eyebrows are known to disappear and/or reappear at times, or in rare cases even "duplicate", creating an extra pair of eyebrows (as seen on Lois' father when Peter meets him in "Death Lives").

I'd sell my soul to be famous.

We've got a live one. Peter Griffin.
No good, sir. It seems he already sold his soul once in 1977 for Bee Gees tickets and then again in 1983 for half a mallomar.

In the season 5 episode "Stewie Loves Lois", the end credits are rearranged to mimic the end credits of "All In The Family", complete with the show's closing theme song. See more »
It certainly beats Friends, or Everybody Loves Raymond, but Family Guy doesn't hold a candle to wonderful animated shows like: the Simpsons, King of the Hill, Beavis and Butthead, and South Park. I realize that they are all different shows with only the animation in common, but the quality is different.
The difference is characters that you can warm up to. I actually feel a little sorry for Beavis when I see him be slapped by Butthead. The situations you see the Hill family in are very personal, private and intimate; you can't help but think that they're a family you actually know. The South Park children are endearing and entertaining. If a giant anvil fell on the Griffin house, I wouldn't care.
After watching the DVDs of the first through third seasons the first time, I loved it. The nostalgia was great, thinking about all of the pop culture references from when I grew up. But, after a second or third viewing, it got old, and quickly.
The only good character on the show is Brian, but he's not enough to carry the whole show, especially when every other episode he sings show tunes.
Not my cup of tea.
