Did You Know?


The fate of the Jewish character who comes to the door is inspired by the long-standing rumor that Walt Disney was a closet anti-Semite. Evidence is mostly circumstantial, although Walt certainly wasn't above using Jewish jokes of slightly questionable taste. (In The Opry House (1929), for instance, Mickey dances around dressed as a Hasidic Jew. One scene cut from Three Little Pigs (1933) even had the Wolf dressed up as a stereotypical Jewish peddler; the scene was changed after complaints came in from Jewish groups.) See more »

The One With The Multiverses...
28 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is my absolute favorite episode of the entire series! It has to be. It's just so good. I love it so much and I can watch it over and over and not get bored. It is just such a good concept. It's definitely the best "Road To" episode of Family Guy, so far, anyway.

In this episode, the Griffin family are at the State Fair. Stewie wins a hog contest and shows Brian his pig. It's a genetically engineered pig from another universe. Stewie takes Brian home and tells him all about the theory, that there are multiple universes, and that he had created a machine to take him there. They go to another universe, I can't remember if it's by accident or on purpose, but anyway they do. Now that I think about it more, I think Stewie purposely took Brian to another universe. They go to a universe in which Christianity never existed, therefore, the world is a thousand years more advanced. The only character from the show we see there, is Meg, who looks great, and is apparently still one of the ugly ones. They go to many different universes. Such as one with good looking men in their underwear, one made up entirely of fire hydrants, one where 3D clay, one where they are real-life people and dogs, one where it's like the Flintstones, a Disney universe, which was very racist, a Japanese universe. And my personal favorite: one where everyone has two heads. One happy, one sad. Eventually they find themselves in a universe where people are the pets and dogs are the masters. Brian wanting to stay, accidentally breaks the return pad. They go visit themselves, and see that there, Brian is a human, and the Griffins are different breeds of dogs. I don't know how they're different breeds, but whatever. Dog Stewie tells normal Stewie that he knows who they are and why they've. But after human Stewie bites dog Joe, he is taken to the pound, where he will be put down. Human Brian, dog Brian and dog Stewie all go to save him. Eventually they do, and when they are about to leave, human Brian decides to come along. When home, human Brian goes to find a new adventure in a world where he will be in charge. And just to tie up loose ends, he gets hit by a car.

I love how creepy it is to see a human Brian, and a dog Stewie, Peter, Joe, Meg, Chris and Lois. It's so cool. I especially love the universe in which it's like a Disney movie. This episode is very well done.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
