Water bears are a big thing in my house. We even joke that Sally, our cat so fluffy she has no neck, is one, calling her "Tardigrade," among other things. Family Guy featured a new character last night known as Vernon the Water Bear, and if you didn't already hear, Kyrie Irving, point guard of the Boston Celtics, voiced the character! Of course, the tardigrades in the episode aren't nearly as cute as the real thing; in fact, they look like pink, fleshy monsters more than anything else, but they're pretty funny. One is even dubbed Patrick Stewart as a water bear.
I don't think this is going to be a recurring character on the show, but who knows? We all thought that the first time with the chicken and many other characters, so it's always a possibility.
What do you think of the water bears on Family Guy?
