Storyline

Against strict orders from Lois, Peter drinks profusely at his buddy's bachelor party. After showing up at work hung over, Peter gets fired. When he applies for welfare, they accidentally send him a check for $150,000, which leads to a spending binge. When Lois discovers the truth, Peter attempts to return the money to the taxpayers by dumping it from a blimp at the Super Bowl. But when he is arrested, his family must come to the rescue.

What family guy should still be
11 May 2020 | by budd-17383See all my reviews

No repetitive voices, no boring computerised animation, characters weren't one dimensional and unlikeable, a fun story, good humour, no explaining the jokes. The formula that family guy has lost most of.
