Sorting favorite characters into their Hogwarts Houses has become something of a cultural phenomenon, and it's fun to speculate about which of our fandoms has the most Gryffindors, Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs or Slytherins. Many even combine multiple houses, sorting their favorites into Gryffinpuffs or Raverins.
Have you ever stopped to consider all of the crimes Peter Griffin is guilty of committing throughout his life? If we added them all up, the idiot would truly be locked away for a long time, assuming Lois's rich father didn't bail him out (he wouldn't), or Joe's cop friends didn't pull strings for him (unlikely).
If you've ever heard Seth MacFarlane talk about the Family Guy movie he's always dreamed of making over the past 10 years, you may have since dismissed the idea since it's been so long since we've had any real updates about the possibility. MacFarlane just reassured fans that not only is it still a possibility, but he thinks he knows what he wants it to be about. He says he hasn't had a lot of time to work on it but it's still going to happen.
There's often a fine line between what's annoying and what's funny when it comes to Family Guy, right? Some characters are just annoying all of the time, and while they deliver a few laughs, you can't help but wince when they're on the screen. Others are often annoying in various ways that get on our nerves, but not enough to where we don't want to watch the show anymore.
If you've been following the Family Guy Emmy campaigns, you know that the show usually does something silly in a spoof of something relevant in the news or an actual contender--like Game of Thrones, which they did a few weeks ago. Now they're making fun of the college admissions scandal with an image that says they've "earned" the Emmy, complete with their heads photoshopped on a bunch of rowers at school.
Most cartoon characters never age, or if they do, they do super slowly. That's why it makes so much sense to cast adults whose voices have stopped changing (at least for a good few decades) to voice the characters. Even so, fans are surprised to learn that if the show did follow normal aging patterns, Peter Griffin would now be 60 years old!
If you've a longtime follower of Family Guy, you've probably noticed how much the show has changed over the years. This piece by Screen Rant really goes into detail about the different changes we've seen happen on the show, from the changes in Meg's personality to Stewie's evolution from matricidal maniac to generic evil genius baby.
Every time Family Guy tries to get Emmy votes, many people find it hilarious. This year they're after the vote for Game of Thrones, likely because it's the show's last season and many are tuning in to see what happens in Westeros. While it's quite unlikely that Peter Griffin will end up on the Iron Throne, recent events on the show make it look like anything is possible.
Ask me how Peter Griffin's look has evolved over the years and I'm honestly not able to report much from memory alone. I haven't paid that close attention to the show's animation to really recall how Peter once looked versus how he looks today, and I would have to look it up. Luckily there's this video to remind us.
I love James Corden so much, and when he recently made an innocent comment on his show I had to wonder if it was accidental or not. His reaction seemed genuine enough, but I'm still left wondering if he tried to poke a beehive to get a bit of drama going.
He suggested that Linda Cardellini be on Family Guy, and she said it was funny he should say that because she WAS on the show and Seth MacFarlane replaced her without notice! She had told people she'd be on the show and was surprised to find out that nope, she wasn't on it after filming after all. Wow.
