“Cootie & The Blowhard”

What did you think of the episode?

The sixth episode of season 20, "Cootie & the Blowhard," just aired with generally positive reviews. The episode centered around two main plots: Peter sneaking around to eat Bonnie's meals, which are tastier than Lois's cooking, and Stewie plots his own death for once because he's contracted a deadly disease that will kill him anyway: cooties.

It's the kind of over-the-top scenario based on real life that you'd expect from classic Family Guy without too many bells and whistles, making it one of the better episodes of the season. Lois not even really caring about Peter's shenanigans was the best part because the joke was on him since it meant less work for her.

The Best 20 Episodes of Family Guy

Share your thoughts in the chat

When it comes to adult animation, everyone has their favorite episodes. Over Halloween I re-watched some of my old favorite Halloween South Park episodes only to realize that I don't like much of them anymore. Some of the jokes are still funny but most were just annoying. Has Family Guy gone the same way over the years?

Many people feel the show has lasted the test of time. Even if it hasn't, certain episodes remain the most highly-ranked Family Guy episodes by IMDB and this list shows which ones fans have enjoyed the most. Looking over the list, I see a few I know I liked when they first aired. "Blue Harvest" will probably always make the top 10 list. But if I watched them over again, I do wonder if I'd still like them as much.

How do you feel about this list and whether or not these episodes are still fun to watch, or any good, still today? Share your feelings in the chat.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

Family Guy dips into anime territory

Family Guy is always trying to keep up with modern entertainment, especially with little cameos and nods to current events and pop culture trends. Sometimes it's fun to see who will cover what first between all of the adult animation, and Family Guy is often the frontrunner of this trend. The showrunners gave a little shoutout to a popular anime in the last episode.

In episode five, "Brief Encounter," fans got to witness a "To be Continued" moment expressed in meme form from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. It's a pretty fun format to demonstrate the whole "To Be Continued" note, especially given the general audience of the show. It really wouldn't be far off to do a show mostly in memes at this point, just for kicks.

Family Guy Halloween Costume Ideas

Share yours in the chat

It's that time of year again: time to check out all of the Family Guy Halloween costumes! Whether you're planning to go as one of the Griffins or their neighbors for Halloween or not, it's always fun to see what everyone else is up to and even get ideas to wear for another year, if applicable. So what are the most interesting Family Guy looks you've seen so far?

The gold medal this year needs to go to this Stewie mascot costume. Just look at it! I can't look away. On the one hand, it's incredibly detailed (and expensive), but on the other, it makes Stewie's trademark diabolical eyes appear more sleepy-baby, which just makes him look weird and oddly scary. Maybe that's a good thing for Halloween? 

The runner-up is this Peter face mask that gives you his big chin and goofy smirk so you can look like him even when you aren't in costume. It's a pretty funny mask, and we've seen lots of fun masks over the past year so we should probably expect to see even more like it.

What funny Family Guy costumes have you seen so far? Do you have one yourself? Share them in the chat.

Super Smash Family Guy

Check out this fan art and share your own

A Family Guy fan recently drew the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate poster but as characters from Family Guy and it's pretty awesome! The style is spot-on and a plethora of characters are included. I don't recognize each face from Family Guy but I love how the ones I do know are all incorporated.

Peter as Kirby is the best as well as the worst, don't you think? It's hilarious... yet disturbing. I love Kirby so much and I can't unsee it. Help! That said, Pikachu Stewie sure looks like he could do a lot more damage. Those eyes are pretty creepy.

Naturally, fans have also thought about how the cast might look. Would you agree with some of the selections? How would you cast them and have you made your own fan art? Share it in the chat!

Real-Life Peter Griffin

Have you seen Peter's lookalike?

Have you had a chance to see the real-life Peter Griffin? No, he's not actually Peter but he looks so much like him that many people find him to be as close as one can get to the point where he was even mentioned on the show. Robert Franzese doesn't just look the part, though--he is also a Peter Griffin impersonator!

Franzese started impersonating Peter at conventions just because he couldn't stand wearing heavier, thicker costumes. But his little venture into Family Guy territory stuck as people embraced him as Peter and now he has the reputation of being the Peter Griffin impersonator! He says he got so popular with people following him he felt like Stan Lee.

Adult Swim Says Adieu

Family Guy leaves the network

Everyone's talking about Seth MacFarlane's PSA, but Adult Swim has one of their own. It's a fond farewell to Family Guy after 18 years of the show airing on the channel. The show's syndication will now occur on FXX and Freeform rather than the place where so many of us got to know it in the first place, so it's a sad moment for many fans, too.

I'd laugh if you told me it would be an emotional video, butit really is! The video features a bunch of other characters waving goodbye right before Stewie waves back and... wow. Either I'm feeling super sentimental or it's symbolic of so many changes we're experiencing right now. Does anyone else feel like they've already been through a lifetime of changes in just two years and that they could really use a pause?

New Family Guy Covid Vaccine PSA

Do you think it will help?

If the nation's leading medical experts, scientists and doctors from around the world aren't enough to convince someone to get the Covid-19 vaccine, do you think their favorite animated characters could get the job done? That's what Family Guy producers must be hoping with this new animated PSA featuring Brian, Stewie and Peter Griffin.

As Peter debates whether or not to get the vaccine, the two members of the family who aren't even elligible to receive it explain to him how it works. Peter then opts to get the shot when their simple answer gives him the information he needs. Maybe the PSA will be helpful for some people--some of the country's leading immunologists and epidemiologists helped make it, after all--but it's Family Guy, so you have to wonder if they were also poking something else along the way. After all, shouldn't everyone know how the vaccine works? It's been explained over and over again...

Hopefully the PSA will do some good. What did you think of it?

Fox Says Family Guy Is Important to Network

Network President says the show is important to Fox's future

How many people tune in to watch Family Guy or other adult cartoon programming but otherwise despise the Fox Network? Chances are there are a lot of them, especially given how much more liberal most of the shows are compared to the news network. That's why it's so ironic to hear the network president say that Family Guy and The Simpsons are so important for the company's future.

Based on the popularity of these shows, Fox is already producing more animated series, and the president knows exactly what they're doing. This humorous animated hold they have on otherwise liberal Americans is all they have linking them to the network. If they took away their cartoons, the viewers would have no choice but to rise up and block it from their TVs as well as their parents'.

All joking aside, MacFarlane himself doesn't like that Fox is attached to his show, so its hold is ironic in other ways, too. Would you watch the network without its animated programming? Why or why not?
