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.

Lois and Peter goes to a new up-and-coming restaurant that opened in Quahog. The waiter brings Peter the t-bone steak he ordered but it is undercooked. Peter then sets the cut-away: "This is more undercooked than the dinner I had with Jeffrey Dahmer." The screen changes to Peter sitting at the table with Jeffrey Dahmer sharing a dead person's leg

I love Family Guy and I would love to see a Harry Potter episode. There is a few Harry Potter sketches but not a full episode like Star Wars

I don't know if you thought about these but I have some tv shows ideas.
1. The Griffin family find themselves living like black people "in the hood"
2. Peter and his friends find interest in motorcycles.
3. Meg get botox
4. Lois gets too involved in social media
5. Stewie and Brian do friend version of Eat Pray Love that goes wrong and they get in trouble with an Asian mofia.
6. Chris wants to try out doors activity with Peter.
7. A show with a messages maybe about transgenders or voting.

here is a idea I had for bryan. Bryan writes a ebook and publishes it on kindle and then gets no sales ever. I think that would be a funny bit for your cartoon.

Excellent idea for an rpiside? Gordon Ramsey, either a take take on Hell's Kitchen or kitchen nightmares, Gordon bound to agree would be hildrious, make it happen and make it harsh, he's been taking the piss out of Americans for last few years, he's got a good sense of humour and he's bound to be up for an episode, 'wow Fk me wow' he'd be s good combo dith Stewie wer steeiebcomes out on top, make it happen, would relate to uk and us fans

I love your idea of Amercian dad & Family guy finaly doing an episode together! Perhaps the creators think that the two familys are living in the same time but not in the same universe! And perhaps stewie with his machine he built might bring them together!!! Hope one day they do some how or other xD

I'm semi-stoned but i am a fan of family guy! i dont know if you guys read this but like any series that has a baby everyone looks forward to that baby growing and family guy is amazing as it is and the ideas are limitless but it would be great if stewie could slowly age, maintain the same personality but age! every other character says the same bnut stewie ages. thats kind of weird but hey its seth! everything works!

Guys make a powerball lottery episode please would be amazing and bring back the time machine. Make it so the Griffins go broke playing the power ball and no one wins then Stewie goes forward in the time machine a couple days to find the winning numbers. You guys can make up the rest....... But there's the idea

Hey Seth I know you might not read this but maybe if I get lucky I have a few episode ideas for a season that I think everyone would get a kick out of. Here they are
1 Peter and Joe find themselves lost in the woods and live like wolves (a man is a wolf )
2 Peter finds out he likes crack (crack pot squat )
3 Lois is feed up with Peters anitics but when she tries to go to her parents house on a plane she gets lost and must live in Nj (don't ya hate just new Jersey)
4 When Quagmire gets married on purpose he stops hanging out with his friends (Quagmire don't marry)
5 When Joe finds out his legs were numb all this time and now can walk (I think I tried to walk it works)

I love family guy it's always been one of my favorite shows, and I am never one to be offended by much. The reason I am writing is because this episode is just ridiculous in the way you portray Jesus. I am sure you got alot of complaints about this episode, just thought I'd give you one more piece of negative feedback.

Hi, so I had an idea for a family guy episode that I think could be almost pee your pants worthy.

Here it is; title: Pool Theft

OK bare with me like the beaches of Brazil, Peter and fam are taking a Vacaca and using their neighboring Marriott 5-star hotel pool that kicks ass compared to their 3-star pool at the Holiday Inn. Of course to make it legit they have to wear sun hats and sunglasses to create the necessary identity camouflage. Funny conversations take place at the pool with the other guests--or so they claim to be. Is everyone a pool thief? You can also throw in a few attempted inconspicuous swimsuit wedgie picking and food poisoning or nausea. Oh and the elderly sporting their bikinis and banana hammocks make a nice touch.

Anywho, I think this would be a funny episode to watch.

Best regards from Russia.
Thank you for the wonderful moments of happiness and joy.
I'm a longtime fan of the series "Family Guy", this cartoon has brought me more laughs than any comedy. I believe that laughter - the best medicine for the pressing problems. Do your creativity a lot of fans in our country, in spite of the specific culture of the United States. By the way, thanks to you, I fell in love with the songs of Frank Sinatra and Anne Murray.
Sorry for the bad translation, I used Google translator.
Perhaps you have a translator present, so the text will put on my tongue.

Большой привет из России.
Спасибо тебе за чудесные моменты счастья и радости.
Я давний поклонник сериала "гриффины", этот мультфильм принес мне больше смеха, чем все кинокомедии. Я считаю, что смех - лучшее лекарство от насущных проблем. У твоего творчества много поклонников в нашей стране, несмотря на специфичную культуру США. Между прочим, благодаря тебе я полюбил песни Френка Синатры и Энн Мюррей.

There are books called the griffin books that casinos have to catalog pictures of people who are known card counters and generally just undesirable gamblers. A story about the origin of these books would be funny. Like a relative of Peter's or Peter himself being the first card counter.

I submitted a comment about the griffin books. I read the other comments and they are practically all show ideas so now I feel like a medium sized douche. But at least my idea was better than some of the others, the Lois getting addicted to social media was a funny idea. OK have a good one. GO TRUMP!!

The doctor calls her in but he is wearing shades and caring a stick. He tells her to take a seat as he works over to his desk still caring the stick. He proceeds with the eye exam asking questions which is better 1 or 2 3 or 4 but the doctor come to find out the doctor is blind.

Peter happens to listen to a rave song and gets the idea to go to a "Consert" and ends up stepping into a bright euphoria of bullshit. People on drugs and doing crazy shit in the background as he's enlightened yet confused of the whole situation. Quagmire, Joe, Brian and Stewie are there as well and as you could imagine, Quagmire is doing quagmire shit, Joe can't go anywhere becasue a couple chicks hyped up on LSD are using his wheels from his wheele chair as hullahoops, Brian grabs a handful of shrooms from a dude at the rave (trips balls) and then Stewie is thrown into the crowd, starts crowd surfing, gets suctioned in and BURSTS OUT AS A FLAMBOYANT BEAUTIFUL RAVE FAIRY!
Boom, now throw comedy in there, Lois bitching and eh make something happen to Meg. Peters laugh is fantastic when something happens to her.
BOOM, You're welcome

I was just watching Jimmy Fallon's interviews on YouTube and I was thinking it'd kind of be funny to somehow form a skit that would obviously fit in with the moment of the story in the show of him laughing way too much at his guest because he seems to think everything his guests say or do is hilarious and he's always hitting his desk while cracking up. I don't know, I thought it'd be funny!!!!

Dear Family Guy,
I'm just going to give you a list of ideas because I have nothing better to do.

1. Brian and Stewie turn their "bromance" into a homosexual relationship.
2. Meg and her girlfriends go out on a quest to find the fictional character known as "slender man".
3. Stewie befriends world renown scientist Aubrey Degrey(biomedical gerontologist who is trying to "cure" aging and make people live forever), eventually Death catches on to them and makes a failed attempt to ban them from doing so. Death's plan to stop them is to bring Dr. Kovorkian back to life and together they beat Aubrey and Stewie.
4. Family Guy mocks the B rated "Final Destination" series of movies, with the main character being, of course, Death.

Since Quagmire is older than Peter enough to be his dad, somehow make a big turn in the story to where Quagmire is Peter's Real Dad, instead of Mickey McFinnigan. Maybe make it an episode where Brian and Stewie use the parallel universe remote to hop to a reality in which this is true and they maybe want to look into that somehow

Mason Williams. Dubuque Iowa. 52001. I have an idea for the show. In an episode, Peter had gotten a falcon and named it Xerxes and the falcon itself was hilarious. Well a part of the episode, Peter had Xerxes steal a motorcycle with a sidecar and Peter said itd be cool to do a tv show. Well they did that whole like intro to basically a classic tv show and towards the end of the bit, it showed Peter, Xerxes, a T-Rex, and Santa Claus in astronaught outfits. Well I think itd be hilarious if did an entire episode with them. Its always the classic 4, Peter, Quagmire, Joe, and Cleveland but I think people would laugh and maybe the show would be either a hit or a miss for viewers but doesnt hurt to maybe try. Just a young guy here with maybe some great or possibly dumb ideas and always wanted to see whatd itd be like for an idea of my own to maybe come to life.

If this is Family Guy's last season (I will be sooooo disappointed); I think you should end it with your own version of "Idiocracy" and you could use that to tie it into the scifi animated series you are rumored to be working on. I hope Family Guy does not end, I'd rather see American Dad go than Family Guy; I think Peter Griffin's views of the world are more down to earth and realistic these days. I truly value shows that offer opinions on social criticisms and the world needs them, I think, to better understand what's going on in our lives and around us; and how it affects all of us inside and out. Family Guy does just that and it'd be a shame to lose that sense of reality it projects. The 80's references don't hurt, either

It's that time of year where the fair is in town. I was thinking of an episode where petter and the guys enter a pig wrestling competition and win or lose either way setting a new record for a fast time or a slow time. And in the other part of the episode Brian and Stewie find out Meg is in an underground fight club and convince her to give up the fights. Or whatever you guys think would be best

Hey man. For starters I'm 15 and a female.
But I have an episode idea for you.

Maybe you could do an episode where Meg actually kills herself. It'd be fucking great. Like have something over the top happen. Have her kill herself. And then have the family go to shit. People would get depressed. But of course funny shit has to happen. That's how it works.

I'm one of those people who enjoys bad jokes. My favorite being 9/11. Which I know is risky because of tv show restrictions. Or whatever it's called. So I say. Have her kill herself. Then have like Chris go into a deep depression. Then Peter. Then Brian of course. Because he's Brian. Lois goes insane. The. Stevie gets extremely annoyed and goes back in time. And finds her. Tells her to stop and then she does and everything goes back to normal. But then Meg turns into an absolute cunt. Am I allowed to say that? That's like my favorite word. I'm saying it. Peter of course getting into into something else. Like while Meg is dead he decides to start a thing to help suicidal people. But he sucks and people kill themselves anyway.

I'm just pitching ideas out there man. I know you guys put some funny shit together and make it work. But Meg should kill herself. The shock factor would be great.

I have to say if I could relate to anyone in that show. It's probably Chris. He's hilarious. I'm hilarious. I make myself laugh a lot. But world domination would be pretty badass. Haha my mom is right next to me helping me come up with ideas. She's badass too. I have another idea. But it's not going in this message. But it'd be great. Alright man. This is just an idea. If this actually goes through. I'll
Be impressed. But okay. Keep on being hilarious. I appreciate it.

Family Guy is one of the greatest tv shows to ever be produced. I honestly watch it every single day on my netbook. I wake up to it and I go to sleep to it. Besides the Fresh Prince and Martin, nothing can compare to the energy you guys put into the show. It is a harmonious balance of memorable characters, continuous laughter, and just a complete and genius thoughtful masterpiece of work. I thank the creator and the whole cast worthy of the highest praises available.
