Storyline

Sick, twisted and politically incorrect, the animated series features the adventures of the Griffin family. Endearingly ignorant Peter and his stay-at-home wife Lois reside in Quahog, R.I., and have three kids. Meg, the eldest child, is a social outcast, and teenage Chris is awkward and clueless when it comes to the opposite sex. The youngest, Stewie, is a genius baby bent on killing his mother and destroying the world. The talking dog, Brian, keeps Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting through his own life issues. Written by Jwelch5742

Trivia

Like real-life children, Chris and Meg share the facial or body features of their parents, Peter and Lois. Meg has the same hairstyle, nose, and mouth as Lois (although Lois is considered very attractive, and Meg very ugly in the show's universe) and has brown hair and wears glasses like Peter. As for Chris, he has eyes like Lois and a nose, mouth, and cleft chin like Peter. Chris has one attribute he shares with neither parent: His blond hair. However, in the early pre-production stages of the series, Lois was supposed to have blonde hair, but the creative team decided to make her a redhead. Despite the change, they chose to leave Chris' hair blond. See more »

Goofs

Several times throughout the series, characters appear on game shows. But the versions of the game shows are outdated versions that no longer exist. For instance, the Griffins appeared on Family Feud, with its old set style and Richard Dawson hosting. Likewise, Peter appeared on Wheel of Fortune, which used its old "buy prizes after each round" format. See more »

Quotes

Peter Griffin: Leave it to me, I read a book about these people before.
Brian Griffin: Are you sure it was a book, are you sure it wasn't... nothing.
Peter Griffin: Oh, yeah.

Crazy Credits

In the season 5 episode "Stewie Loves Lois," the end credits are rearranged to mimic the end credits of "All In The Family," complete with the show's closing theme song. See more »

Alternate Versions

Germany had the episode where Peter takes over for the Grim Reaper cut because one part had a scene where the Grim Reaper tells Peter over the phone about how bad the world would be if there was no death. The Grim Reaper then adds, "Imagine a world where Hitler was still alive" and the phone conversation cuts to a talk show called, "Hitler". See more »

One of my favourites
12 October 2018 | by hooleydavidSee all my reviews

I'm currently going through and watching from S1E1 right until the latest episode, currently 10, almost 11 seasons in and I do think the first 4 or 5 seasons were better, and the feature-length episodes do get a bit tedious, but overall I just think is comedy gold. It's not a classic comedy, it's more ridiculous, childish things that make this show funny - the low maturity level of Peter, the cutaways, the ongoing jokes with the chicken and THAT song.

I watch an episode every day with my dinner, often two a day in fact. Whilst some episodes often pass me by without making me laugh and are forgettable, 9 times out of 10 there's a few moments in every Family Guy episode that make me crack up!

Not one to watch with the family, but certainly one I'd recommend.
