Family Guy

Show Premise: 

The show showcases adventures of the family of Peter Griffin, a bumbling blue-collar worker. Peter is married to Lois, a stay-at-home mother and piano teacher who is a member of the Pewterschmidt family of wealthy socialites. Peter and Lois have three children: Meg, their teenage daughter, who is awkward and does not fit in at school, and is constantly ridiculed and ignored by the family; Chris, their teenage son, who is overweight, unintelligent and a younger version of his father in many respects; and Stewie, their diabolical infant son of ambiguous sexual orientation who has adult mannerisms and uses stereotypical archvillain phrases. Living with the family is Brian, the family dog, who is highly anthropomorphized, drinks martinis, and engages in human conversation, though he is still considered a pet.

Production History: 

Family Guy was conceived by Seth MacFarlane after developing two animated films, "The Life of Larry" and "Larry & Steve." MacFarlane redesigned the films' protagonist, Larry, and his dog, Steve, and renamed them Peter and Brian. MacFarlane pitched a seven-minute pilot to Fox on May 15, 1998 and the show was given the green light to start production. Shortly after the third season of Family Guy had aired in 2001, Fox canceled the series, putting the series on a 2-year hiatus. However, favorable DVD sales and high ratings for syndicated reruns on Adult Swim convinced the network to renew the show in 2004 for a fourth season, which began airing on May 1, 2005.

Can someone get Seth Mcfarlane to add a segment based on those people that never shut up about sharks being harmless creatures. Like I can imagine an ep where you get a small segment of something completely random and funny which in this case would be a guy saying to his friend (they're on a boat and spot a shark) "it's okay dude, don't know you cows kill more people a year than a shark", then he jumps in and gets torn apart by the shark lol

There's a joke somewhere between Conway Twitty and Kellyann Conway
"I haven't heard of a cover song this bad since Kellyann Conway something something."
Cutaway to Kellyann's boobs screaming the lyrics to Twitty's song Somebody Lied.
There's a better joke there somewhere, but I'm not a professional. Please. I want to see Conway Titty. I want it as abhorrent as possible.

Hey Family Guy, I'm a huge fan and I had an idea for an episode. Peter somehow because super politically correct and all that annoying crap, then his friends or a guest star teach him that it's annoying, and he becomes really racist and all that, and then he centers to the normal amount of political correctness. Could go the other way, up to you.

The idea I have for a cutaway would be about how Meg was conceived. Also since she's considered the ugly fat chick her conception could be just as ugly. Peter and Lois are having sex and right when they finish Peter's looking for something to clean himself off and finds a towel. When he gets done whipping himself off he passes the towel to Lois to use too and when she's​ finished cleaning herself off she notices blood on the towel, which is her period. Then she turns to Peter and says wow you sure dodged a bullet. Then it switches to another cutaway where there's a professor sitting down in a chair and says "that's where ugly bitches come from"..

Hi Seth, I really love the show Family Guy, so I thought It would be a good idea if I gave you a perfect episode for season 15, so PLEASE PUT THIS ON TV: Stewie creates a mind switching machine (which also switches voices as well) , so Brian and Stewie decide to switch minds. But when Peter finds out about the invention, he switches bodies with Lois so he can find out why out why she's been so distant from him, then it starts getting worse when the machine is overheated and won't work because everyone starts switching bodies with each other too much. While they wait for the mind swapper to work, Peter finds out that Lois is distancing herself from him because she's insecure about her body because it's aging, and that she thinks Peter isn't attracted to her anymore. But Peter proves her wrong by making out and having romantic sex with her ... WITH PETER IN BRIAN'S BODY AND LOIS IN STEWIE'S BODY!!!!!!! The episode ends with everyone back into their bodies, with Brian and Stewie disgusted that Peter and Lois had sex in their bodies.

Ive been watching family guy basically since it came out, i love everything about it the characters are great and so are all the story lines. Just a suggestion but something has been offending me about this show. Often i hear miscarriage jokes, as a woman who has experienced this, its not something to throw in there with the other gross hurtful puns. Id like to ask for it to be kept to a minumum. Its been upsetting me so much i wanna stop watching family guy almost immediatly when i hear a misscairage joke. Sincerly a hurt fan.

Quick cutaway: mention how on willy wonka and the Chocolate family, grandpa Joe was bed ridden for 20 years but just ups and walks at the site of a golden ticket to a chocolate factory. It'd be a great set up joke for the mother, and how she bathe and care him for 20 years

And for the lyrics I'm not sure you guys are great about that stuff

Hello, I love the show and everything about it. I'm just going to throw some ideas at you, do with them what you will. Please
!. I've always believed P. Diddy is a robot created by Donald Trump.
2. You should do an episode based of the 1978 movie The Manitou, where a woman finds a lump on the back of her neck and turns out to be an Indian medicine man. The whole thing ends in a lazer battle in space.
Thank you so much
sincerely yours

Family guy
Shovel man

My friend and I came out with a really good idea for family guy. Peter, Brian and the guys decide to smoke weed because peter is tired of Lois is stressing out peter.

They are all sitting outside when Peter sees something in the corner of his eye and starts to say "guys who is that blue man" he says nervously
"Peter that's a shovel" said Brian (in a disappointed tone)
None of the guys believe peter but when they all look away peter looks back and the shovel man quickly bangs peters head

*peter yells*
Quagmire: "what the hell peter"
Peter: "shovel man just hit me guys did you see that?!?!"

Shovel man backstory:
Power lines are cut and the shovel is struck by lightning and turns into shoval man

So I've been binge watching family guy and some of the earlier episodes they mentioned something that seemed to be missed that could possibly be pretty funny but still it a touchy subject. So here's the pitch what if you guys use your own imagination for this but Jesus meets black Jesus. It might be pushing the limits due to recent events but I think it be interesting to see how family guy takes it kind a like how South Park went a little far to teach about asperger but it still got the point across and thanked for bringing knowledge of the disease.

I think you guys should do an episode that focuses on Stewie going back to the future to check on his future self. Since he went back and prevented his near death experience, I imagine that Stew's life would have turned out differently.

Remember when Meg got that makeover in season 4? I think it would be great if you had her become popular and better looking for a few episodes kinda like the Brian death thing. It would be awesome to have Meg become more useful for a few episodes at least. I also thought having Brian get a girlfriend long term like Jillian would be great to. Also just like the Olivia thing have maybe Janet or some other girls involved with Stewie return.

Why is it that Peter and Lois never notice that Brian can talk to Stewie? Why not make an episode where Stewie is talking at dinner and brian says something in return then peter and lois question brian on who he is talking to. He says Stewie and then peter and lois want to talk to Stewie about why he is able to communicate with brian but not with them.

I am aware Adam west died today and the fact is very disheartening but i had an idea for a proper sendoff for the character of the show for canon proof he is dead in the show. Have Adam be kidnapped by the joker and gagged by a cloth or any object so he cannot talk, this makes it so any person can muffle his lines so it sounds legit, then batman comes in and tries to save him but gets Adam killed in the process.

Please do another episode of Viewer Mail. I have an idea for the show. Family Guy--GENDERBENT! I've seen an episode of this done on Futurama. I figured it'd be fun. Peter=Petra. Lois-Louis. Chris-Christine or Chrissy. Meg=Ron (lolz). Stewie=Stephanie. Quagmire=Glenda Vajmire. Joe=Joanna "Jo". Cleveland=Cleo. Tom Tucker=Tanya Tucker. Joyce Kenny=Kenny Joyce. Hm as far as what you come up with, Seth...let your creative mind do the thinking. I figured if the main characters hang out at a bar, maybe the 'girls' would hang out at a restaurant and drink wine.

My questions are: I really like family guy in the first place. My mind just got wondered off today, watching the first seasons. Where is that HEROIC part of Joe? Remember episode 5? Where is that demonic Stewie, the somewhat cooler Brian (not only writing books but sipping and giving advices all day). I feel like some characters wandered off. I still like them. But when looking back I think, where are the originals. Didn't we follow the opinions of the watchers too much? A thing that ESPECIALLY Family guy shouldn't do because if this shows learns us one thing it's not giving a fuck about anything and living life to the fullest hahaha.

I'm just saying.
Heroic Joe, evil Stewie, the original Brian, may not have wondered off too far, but they were fun to start with. Maybe you should twist em back a notch, just for the fun of it.

Can you do an episode about Richard Wagner!
I mean that Peter listens to Wagner's music and Broomhilde cheats on Siegfried with Peter. There are also References about fat couple sex (Fricka and Wotan are Fat because they eat fried chicken in Vahalla!)

Can you do a sequel to the Richard Wagner episode i suggested, compressing the story of the 15-16 hour opera epic The Ring of the Nibelungs into a gargantuan 2-3, maybe 4-5 hour special on Family Guy about Lois as Fricka, Stewie as Alberich, Brian as Loge, Peter as Wotan, Brians Girlfriends (i mean all of them) as the Valkyries! Chris as Donner, and the Rest of Quahog as the Nibelungs and other races and beings in the Ring. And Klaus from American Dad as Fasolt, Roger the Alien as Fafner, Steve from American dad is Mime, Stan from American dad as Siegfried, Francine from American Dad as Erda!, Jeff from American dad as Siegmund!, Haley from American Dad as Sieglinde.
You dont have to compress all of this in one special but 4-5, even 6-7, maybe 8, 1-2 hour specials premering until the Gotterdamerung Day where its 2 hour and 30 minute special.

I know it may take time!

Had a random idea for a joke. Lampreys are notorious for their resistance to evolution and change in environment. It could be a joke following peter saying something like "you're more stubborn than the lamprey" followed by a lamprey underwater and either another creature evolving next to him or an ice age happening above. Then he could say something like "Ha Haaa, nope." Or something like that.

My idea for a new episode is going to be based off when Peter references other events such as," thats like when so and so did so and so".

Peter is having a convo with loius and the family at their table and Louis mentions someone at her knitting club was called a terrorist by jane from accross the street. Peter then states how muslims are so misunderstood. This then jumps to a scene where a man named akbar is packing up his bags and going to Hawaii and when he arrives and gets off the plane there is an attendant with his name on a sign saying "AKBAR" on it. Then the attendant yells out when he spots Akbar, Aloha-AKBAR! Aloha-AKBAR! Everyone surrounding the attendant runs away as fast as they can screaming.

Thats the scene.

Hi Family Guy, I'm a huge fan. The thing "Archer" caught on to was that they are entertaining teenage boys, so they made their women incredibly attractive. Family guy has the same audience. If Lois (and Bonnie) were made jaw dropping sexy/beautiful, it would increase ratings.
I hope you give this some thought.

I am a HUGE fan of Family Guy! I have an idea for a new episode. Can you guys please do one where Stewie creates a miniature city in which all his action figures and stuffed animals live, and then he invents a way for them to come to life. Then, he and Brian shrink themselves down, enter the city, and spend some time hanging with the figures and animals. Maybe Rupert could finally talk!
