The Griffins wind up stuck in orbit on a space shuttle after Peter and Lois send Chris to Florida for space camp.
Did You Know?
The opening live action sequence was taken from "Monty Python's Flying Circus" (1969). The opening animation is a shot for shot recreation of Monty Python's openening sequence (albeit done with the Griffin family) in the style made famous by Terry Gilliam. See more
When the Griffin family enters the Space Shuttle, the floor and seats are level with the horizon - in other words, as it would be after it landed. The Shuttle however is in launch position which means they would have to be climbing everywhere. See more
Mom, I can handle space camp. I'm not stupid.
Well, regardless, on the way back we're stopping at that Down syndrome camp we passed.
Peter, that was the University of Florida.
