Goofs

After the light saber duel between Herbert (Obi Wan) and Stewie (Darth Vader), Brian (Chewbacca) and Peter Griffin (Han Solo) run out with the couch. When they are arguing with each other on how to get the couch into the Millennium Falcon, the laser blasts are actually going the wrong way. The Storm Troopers are on the right of them firing to the left, but the the laser blasts are coming from the left of them and going right. You can clearly see there wasn't any Storm Troopers on the left of them as they were running to the ship. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Title card/crawl: A long time ago, but somehow in the future... It is a period of civil war and renegade paragraphs floating through space. There's cool space battles, and the bad guy is the good guy's dad. But you don't find that out 'til the next episode. And the hot chick is really the sister of the good guy, but they don't know it and they kiss. Which is kind of messed up. I mean, what if they had done it instead of just kissed? Angelina Jolie kissed her brother. Yeah, she did. You know it, I ...

Incredibly creative and very funny
9 October 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

I have never seen anything like the two-part STAR WARS spoof that FAMILY GUY trotted out for its latest season premier. If this show wasn't light-years ahead of THE SIMPSONS already, it surely was with this incredible saga. I cannot imagine how many weeks or months went into piecing this mini-epic together. The plot has FAMILY GUY patriarch Peter Griffin (voiced by show creator Seth McFarlane) telling his family a variation on the original Star Wars story with himself as Han Solo and everyone he knows standing in for the other characters. His wife, for instance, is Princess Leia, and their dog is Chewbaca. Baby Stewie is Darth Vader, of all people. Keep in mind FAMILY GUY is a Fox show, and 20th Century Fox owns the STAR WARS movies, so McFarlane was able to avail himself of music, sound effects and images from the original STAR WARS movie. The seamless integration of these authentic STAR WARS bits in this cartoon turns this two-parter from an ordinary TV cartoon into something else entirely. If you haven't seen this, make sure you watch for it. It marks a turning point in the history of TV cartooning. Obviously, subsequent episodes will never be able to live up to it, but they need not. I think McFarlane wanted to kick THE SIMPSONS' ass for the season starter. If you saw the season starter for THE SIMPSONS, I am sure you will agree. A sidenote: When Peter has finished spinning his STAR WARS yarn, he and son Chris, voiced by the highly versatile Seth Green, argue briefly but sharply about a Cartoon Network show called ROBOT CHICKEN. Chris, who loves the show, points out ROBOT CHICKEN did a spoof of STAR WARS long before FAMILY GUY's version, while Peter disdains and dismisses and insults ROBOT CHICKEN. Green is the creator of ROBOT CHICKEN. Talk about an inside joke. Maybe the greatest inside joke ever perpetuated. What a perfect ending to a perfect yarn.
