Best Family Guy Comic Con Looks

And other cosplays!

Comic Con certainly isn't limited to comic books, video games and movies anymore. Fandoms of all kinds are representing now. I think the teen me would've been resentful since that would have been "my space," but now that geekdom is accepted and being nerdy is actually cool, grownup me loves the inclusivity. 

There are some incredible cosplays of Peter, Lois and the gang all over the web. This one is one of my favorites but there are lots of great ones. I love it when people wear something to make their heads more football-shaped to look like Stewie, too.

Season 19 Trivia

Here are a few tidbits that might come in handy for trivia night!

If you're a person who just can't get enough of behind-the-scenes details when it comes to your favorite shows, you may enjoy these behind-the-scenes revelations about season 19 of Family Guy. It was a unique season during quarantine with some extra work for many of the show's creators.

For example, you might already know that Walter Murphy has done music for the show all along, and that its famous for live music during production. But this season meant Murphy making music from individual audio files from each musician! Yikes.

Patriotic Family Guy Merch

Do you have any at home?

In many ways, the Griffins symbolize the American family--in some ways for real and in some ways in terms of how the rest of the world views us. It's meant to be satire, of course, so we can laugh at ourselves, but the idea of pairing the show up with some patriotic merch is just so funny because of this very reason.

It turns out there are a lot of patriotic shirts, from keychains and buttons to T-shirts and mugs, that all feature the American flag combined with Family Guy imagery or even imagery of Peter attempting to make his own country (remember when that happened!). Sure, the flag is combined with everything from beer to bald eagles but in this case it's extra fun, especially with the Fourth of July coming up.

Should Stewie Have Saved Brian?

What do you think?

The Griffin family dog Brian has been both loved and hated by audiences over the years, much like most other characters in the show. He's often served as the family voice of conscience and, aside from Stewie, might be the smartest member of the family. That said, he has also been a major jerk many times over, especially when it comes to the women he dates or lusts after.

While people loved Brian at the beginning, some of this behavior led to him being hated by some fans. Even so, when he was killed off the show back in season 12, plenty of fans were upset, and Stewie saved him with a time machine. The question is... was it a good decision?

After everything that's happened since, would you say that Brian still contributes to the show, or do you think he'd have been better off written off for good? Share your thoughts in the chat.

Your Favorite Character With No Name

You know, that one guy...

It's funny, the other day I was thinking about how fun it is to analyze the zodiac signs of different characters and I thought what if we analyzed the little nameless characters on shows that we love but have no idea about? We get a glimpse here and there without really knowing anything about these characters... Anyway I had that thought and this list rating the best unnamed characters was published!

Most of the best no-name characters are definitely in this list, but I wanted to see who you thought were the best characters on the show without a name. The fact that many of these are the "Other" version of main characters kind of gives them a name anyway, right? 

So who are your favorite no-name characters and why? Tell us in the chat.

Styling Family Guy Characters

Share your favorite twists!

One of the greatest things about sharing fandoms online is the opportunity to really play with them. Some people like to give the characters their own theme song or imagine their zodiac or car, house, job, etc. if they were real. Some like to put them in fanfiction stories. Some even reimagine them crossed with other fandoms.

That last one is really fun to explore. Odds are someone has crossed your favorite character from Family Guy with some random fandom--and you can guarantee that most fandoms have been crossed with Disney characters! It's easy to get lost in a rabbit hole of this wonderful weirdness.

Family Guy: Freakin' Party Pack

Do you own one?

Have you ever seen the Family Guy: Freakin' Party Pack that went for sale in 2007? At the time, the collector's item contained most of the episodes released, but given that 14 years have almost passed, the set certainly isn't a complete one. However, it was a big collector's item because it came with a bunch of bonus extras.

While I've seen the set go for around $80 on various websites, it's selling for nearly $400 on Amazon, making it a real collector's item. Although there were some complaints regarding the difficulty people had using the carrying case, it also had lots of novelty items with the show's theme, like ping pong balls, playing cards and poker chips.

Do you own one of these sets, or another cool Family Guy set? Share it in the chat!

Family Guy Approaches Season 20

Are you favorite Fox shows on the chopping block?

Did anyone really wonder if Family Guy would be renewed for another season or not? It's still raking in the good reviews and viewers, so most people probably won't be surprised by the news. But how did other Fox shows fare when it came to contract renewal time?

The Resident, the 911 shows and Lone Star, which are all pretty on brand for the network, have all been predictably renewed. Duncanville, Bob's Burgers, The Simpsons and Call Me Kat are all returning. Fans of Prodigal Son and Bless the Harts may be sad to hear those two shows were cut.

Are your favorite Fox programs going to return? Share your thoughts about the upcoming season in the chat.

Weirdest Hidden Details On Family Guy

What have you noticed over the years?

While I'm a pretty oblivious person when it comes to hidden details in movies and TV shows, my partner is one to catch everything he sees right away. It's pretty impressive, especially when I didn't even see what he's talking about, let alone understand its meaning. Super fans often find these types of details better than anyone else; of all the shows I've watched, catching them in Castle Rock was the easiest for me, for example.

When I saw this list of hidden details about Family Guy I was amazed that people noticed some of them, too. I never even noticed how many rooms the house has, for example. It seems very unlikely for a home like that to have so many, but hey, every evil mastermind needs a lair or two.

Family Guy Emmy Mailers Replaced By Covid PSAs

Get vaccinated!

How vaccinations became a political issue used to be beyond me, but having seen so many things become political in the past few years, I wouldn't be surprised if dentistry for sloths became a divisive issue tomorrow. (Let's not forget that Black people have plenty of reasons to mistrust vaccines based on their past history with the American government and doctors.)

Still, the fact that so many people are refusing to get vaccinated that it's going to prevent us from achieving herd immunity is a dagger in that shield of hope we started to form last month, and any encouragement for the population to join in is good at this point.

Family guy seems to support this idea as well since they are using their usual Emmy mailer campaign time to send another message: Stewie Griffin wants you to get the Covid-19 vaccine. And if Stewie wants you to have it, it's got to be important, right? He's an evil genius, after all. So make Stewie happy and get the shot!
