Brian Griffin is the favorite Family Guy character for many a fan. He's often the voice of reason for the family (except when he's really, really not), he's a writer who procrastinates and drinks like so many other writers do, and he's Stewie's best buddy in the most hilarious way. But did you know that Brian is also adept at the art of singing classic Snoop songs like "Deep Cover"?
Part of the fun of every season of Family Guy is discovering who the guest stars on the show might be, as well as their various roles for the season. There be spoilers ahead, so if you want to be surprised, read no further!

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.

Have you ever stopped to consider all of the crimes Peter Griffin is guilty of committing throughout his life?

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.
