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.

Have Peter standing in his yard and there be an earthquake. Quagmire comes out and says to Peter "Why aren't you shaking, Peter?" Peter then replies "My fat absorbs the shock."

Dear Seth McFarlane I know your busy with Orville production gotta go live your dream to be on a star trek inspired show. I know how it feels to have a dream I just want to meet you and see about making an episode idea here it is : ok my idea is making an episode in loving memory of Adam west he is a part family guys family and I think he needs a proper send off just like Frank Sinatra jr lets make it a good one have an whole episode dedicated to him and carols life at home and throughout the episode throw some I'll always miss kinda quotes like you made me laugh a certain way and I'll never forget it kinda quotes I feel like I'm being vague ok ' I wish we could see you more often kinda like that. Next Bertram needs to return to family guy because in the eyes of the fans Bertram and penolpe should get together because unlike stewie Bertram craves destruction just like penolpe and lastly I feel like family guy is still the best show ever but we need another Cross over between family guy and the Simpsons ok so what if the chicken had cloned himself and one moved to Springfield they make an entire episode on the chicken watching Homer studying him knowing his weakness at the end of the episode the chicken taking his house his family captive and guess who is homer's last resort Peter Griffin is called but denies Homer at first but then when the same happens to Peter they have to team up to defeat Peters ultimate for times 2

During a conversation about the military and America being bad ass, Peter makes a comment about Hiroshima. Cut away begins with american planes flying over Japan followed by the nuke being dropped and several people on fire running around, melting into skeletons. Immediately followed by a clip from the song America! Fuck yeah!

When two of the main characters are in a loud place on each of them should say "it's louder than a rejected contestant on Italy's got talent" and then switch to a judge telling a contestant they didn't make it on the show and then the guy on stage does really loud A O's and then the entire room joins in soon

I believe a good episode would be Peter decides he’s tired of getting pushed around and gets fighting lessons a good bit would also be he ends up seeing the giant chicken and decides to “teach him a lesson” but that’s my idea Thank You

Peter refers to the days when everyone smoked cigarettes everywhere and they could show the most inappropriate times and places starting with restaurants and airplanes then moving onto doctors performing surgery and nurses delivering babies while smoking cigarettes. Maybe the doctors could place a filthy ashtray on top of the patients body during surgery and the nurses could be blowing smoke in the newborns face or something. im sure some other situations would be hilarious as well. Enjoy!!!

Hello I just recently found out that they were taking family guy off Netflix. I have been crying all day and I was wondering if there was any way you could like appeal that? To keep it on Netflix? Family guy is my favorite show ever and I watch it every day and I don't know what I'm gonna do without it .

I absolutely love watching family guy and I have watched previous seasons over again and again! However, season 16 episode 1 is absolute garbage. If I wanted to watch crappy tv I'd go watch the Simpsons. The jokes are dry and I frankly lost interest in the episode 7 mins after it started. This is the first time I've ever written a comment or sent a message because this is the worst episode in the history of Family Guy, in my opinion.

You should do one where most likely Peter or another character says “This is more disappointing than the time bought those on-sale tickets to the DEAF comedy jam,” and then it cuts away to a stage similar to the normal def comedy jam stage except it’s all def ppl, and the room is getting super hype and ppl are jumping around laughing, except they’re all deaf so it’s just dead silent, and then have peter probably say something funny

Cow heaven. All the cows and farmers who have them slaughtered go to cow heaven. The only restaurant being McHumans. All of the cows get to order and eat humans as burgers, adding ingredients like hiv & aids, warts, syphilis, any kind of sexually transmitted disease. Also there's just good old ketchup and mustard.

Episode idea:
Meg through an accident or alien/magic item gains superpowers and the classic "you got powers so you're hot now bod". She can change back and forth to keep her secret but then she gets jealous of all the attention her heroine self is getting and tries to tell everyone she's the heroine, but even her family doesn't believe her even when she transforms in front of them. Episode ends with her sacrificing her powers to save the town and no one ever believing her that she was the heroine.

Im a huge family guy fan, and freshman at clemson university. I think it would be a dope idea if y'all set up an episode that was a home alone version but instead of keving being the main character setting up booby traps it would be stewie. I think it would be dope if something happened and Stewie couldn't access his weapons of gadget closet and he had to set up homemade booby traps to stay safe in his house in quahog.

Family Guy writers seem to be Apple fanboys. Booo. Seriously. You need to knock Apple in a truthful way; how iSheep love their products because it's a status symbol, not because it's "easy to use". How about how it took Apple 10 years to change the style of the iPhone. Family Guy rules because no one gets a pass, everything is subject to ridicule.

I'm not sure how detailed the episode would be, but it would be funny if Glenn was retrieved by stewie in his time machine only to come back to kill Negan in the same manner that Glenn was killed in the episode. Where Negan gets hit over the head with his skull crushed and his eyeball popped out like what actually happened to Glenn in the official series. Haha, other than that the rest of the episode would have limitless possibilities.

Perhaps, the entire episode is to tread through the zombies to find a location where Stewie can find special components to repair his time machine that was damaged during a zombie attack in the griffin house.

Way you could introduce the real Glenn is he's

I was wondering you can do an episode when Peter met a young italian-Australian man with autism name Sam (who just moved to Quahog), who calls people other names thats assulting everyone (like for example, Sam called Quagmire "it's cruel, because it's inhuman" person, Joe "Leonard the Nut" (who is actually a mentally handicap character in a wheelchair from an Australian series called Fat Pizza, in which there is a cutaway gag of him coming towards Bobo Gigliotti; who looked at Leonards disability allowence cheque and Leonard asks "What do you want me to do now Mr. [Mouth farts] Boss man?!" Who then laughs and Bobo tells him to shut up and slaps Leonard in the face, who was screaming, but then he later farted and said "Bobo! I poo poo in my pants!" Then Bobo tells Leonard again to shut up).
Sam also likes to force people and put babies in the microwave, which pisses everyone off, including Lois; and Stewie was horroified from Sam. There should also be cutaway gag when Peter and Sam hosts a show thats similar to news and Sam constanly raised his voice yelling when it was his turn to say his lines. And Sam also calls the blond skinny teenage boy, the weird person and said "Hullo my weird person, how are you?!" And then that teenager kicks the wall angrliy and then went to him and said shut up to him.
Plus you should bring back Kimi (the one from Take my Wife as Quagmires date) and have Sam flirting with her and touch her boobs, which makes Quagmire jealous. And of course, Peter realises Sam was making fun of him. And also, Sam claims himself as the name 'Homer Simpson' , then a cutaway shows Homer Simpson saying "Hey! I'm the real Homer Simpson and stop calling me Sam!"

Hello! I am a very huge fan of family guy, and my favorite episode of the show so far has been the Three Kings. I loved the parody of misery, as I am also an enormous Steven king fan. However, I was a bit disappointed that only one of the segments was based on one of his horror novels. I think that a parody of 'Carrie' would be absolutely amazing. Meg would perfectly serve as the outcast that everybody thinks is weird and ugly, and since Peter is Catholic and is frequently abusive to Meg, I think he would make an awesome parody of Carrie's mother. I love the episodes when family guy parodies another show or movie, and I hope that you take this into consideration! Thank you, and please, Donnez Moi pancakes.

P.S. Click click bloody click pancakes.

Make a series of episodes where Dillians mom, (Brians ex) comes back "TRANSFORMED." Shes super hot and Brian eventually wants a family of his own with his old ex and his son Dillian. I just would like Brian to be actually happy one time. It seems like his destiny was always to be screwed over.

2. Stewie turns 2 years old and wants to become the old destructive Stewie again. He trys to take over the world, only to be stopped by his brother and sister this time. Also this is all happening in the simulator machine, SURPRISE!

3. Peter takes Chris and Stewie out to a Celtics game for some father and son time. Oh wait, Chris gets to play for the Celtics until his injury.

4. Meg moves out into her first apartment. She gets involved with the wrong group of girls and loses her job, arrested again, and she had to move back with the family.

5. Lois gets suspicious and thinks Peter is cheating. Acting secretly Peter gather things for their special day. Yes, another anniversary episode.

6. Flashbacks of all the fighting chicken moments, leading up to one final battle. The loser having to leave the town for good.

7. Brain goes looking for his dad with his pal Stewie seeking questions to help with Brain new book he is planning to write. Traveling to the pass they found that Brain's dad lived in Louisville, KY and oh what a travel trip it was.

The overall episode would have robots take over the world with AI. However the robots do not understand phrases like "ants in our pants" or "my head is going to explode". And a group aka the family would fight back against the robots by using hyperbolic phrases, similies and metaphors that only the other humans understand. You could even add in captions to express more information about the phrase.
