Storyline

The Griffins visit a 50s-style diner, where the wait staff dress as celebrities from that decade. Peter hears his favorite song, "Surfin' Bird" by the Trashmen, on the jukebox and begins dancing and acting stupid. When one of the employees removes the record from the jukebox - the song came out in late 1963, nearly four years after the end of the 1950s decade - Peter buys the record, takes it home and plays it endlessly. He winds up driving everyone crazy with his obsessive fixation on the song; Chris is driven to the brink, while Lois is appalled when she gets a call from the bank stating that Peter had withdrawn most of their savings account (to produce an insipid public service announcement built around "Surfin' Bird"). Eventually, Brian and Stewie decide they need to take action and, in the middle of the night, team up to steal the record. The next morning, Peter realizes the record is missing and sets out to buy another copy, only to find that "a dog and a baby" have already ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

A Unique episode
22 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You know a lot of people think this one is one of the best ever episodes. I can understand why. I think it depends on your mood if you find the repetition of 'Bird is the word' hilarious or infuriating. I found it hilarious. But I can imagine people in a tired or irritable mood finding it grating. The perception of it being 'best ever' or 'worst ever' seems to hinge entirely on the opinion of the endless repetition of the song. For me the repetition goes from funny to annoying to even funnier again.

The episode is certainly one of the less 'clever' ones. Family Guy can't always be 'comedy for clever people' however. Sometimes it likes to be just flat out silly. And for sheer childish fun it is, whether for good or bad, certainly one of the most memorable episodes ever.
