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.
Did you catch the big Family Guy marathon for Tax Day on April 15? The 20th anniversary special on TBS was an all-day thing that featured many of McFarlane's favorites, from "Extra Large Medium" to "Back to the Pilot." If you click the link, you can check out his thoughts on each of the episodes and why he chose each one or a little bit of background info about the episode selected.
Family Guy is known to be so peppered with pop culture references you're bound to sneeze out a Corey Feldman every now and then. So when they recently aired a nod to the Avengers: Infinity War film, we weren't surprised, but thought it was done pretty well. If you saw it, what did you think? Spoilers ahead.
When it comes to Family Guy (and any of our favorite shows, really; I could definitely do this for Parks and Recreation or Supernatural), many of us could easily think of our favorite episode. We could also probably come up with our least favorite one on the spot while we're at it! But how many of us have ever really put a list together rating our top five or ten favorites against our top five or ten most hated episodes?
Mom. Mommy. Mama. Mom. Mom...
Even those who don't watch Family Guy on the regular know who Stewie Griffin is. One of the most meme-able faces of our time just happens to belong to a foul-mouthed, weirdly British baby with plans for world domination or, at the very least, the Freudian destruction of his own mother. Fun! One of the many things that don't make sense about Stewie is the fact that nobody in the Griffin household understands what he says save for his BFF, the family dog and heavy drinker, Brian.
