Trivia

Joe Swanson originally had a son named Kevin, who was eventually written out of the series. His disappearance was later explained in "Stew-Roids" (#7.13) as that he had died in Iraq. Kevin later appears at the Griffins door in "Thanksgiving" where it's revealed he may have deserted from military, As at the very end of the show a guy claiming to be the REAL Kevin Swanson appears at the door to which Peter replies "I don't think there's time for this guys".
