family-guy.jpg

Family Guy is a Fox animated series that follows the life of the Griffin family.
Peter, Lois, Meg, Chris, Stewie, and Brian live in the town of Quahog, Rhode
Island
.  The show has been cancelled on two separate occasion, but strong DVD
sales and a large fan base has made it one of the most successful programs on
television today.  The program might not be for the light hearted, but the writing,
animation, and obvious use of satire is funny.  The show has always pushed the
limits of the FCC and acceptable topic material.

Family Guy was created by Seth MacFarlane, who voices main characters Peter,
Stewie, Brian, and Glenn Quagmire
.  The show follows and unique style, which
includes numerous “cutaway jokes.”  It has gags surrounding numerous historical
figures, famous moments in history, and carton, animated, and even cereal
characters.  I have collected the videos of ten of my favorite Family Guy moments
for your enjoyment.
