An excellent recent example of just how funny family guy can be..., 15 November 2009
Author: Krezyle from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This episode was likely the best I've ever seen produced in the 'family guy' series and is right on par with some of the early season episodes. This one was exceptionally well thought out and covered a lot of ground in the usual 21 or so minutes. Another poster pointed out how much of the material has already been done, but how can you honestly expect to watch television and not see an idea reused. Even if you had seen it done before, the take on it that the family guy team had and the way they saw it to creation made it fresh in my book. This episode worked to combine elements of family guy that worked with the outside world. The mayor McCheese skit, the political cartoon, the role reversal... In my opinion all of these show just how versatile the family guy team are. The Disney cartoon skit was impressive, and doesn't really just show that Disney is anti-semitic as someone else eluded to. Its the idea that the creators of this cartoon can show you what family guy would look like in a Disney world and portray the characters in such a way to mirror it, brilliant. I have been watching this episode over and over again on hulu, it really is just truly amazing and will be very hard to beat. Wellesley Wild writing the script and Greg Colton producing always seem to be a winning combination.
