Wow! What a twisted episode of Family Guy!

    Did any of you see last night's episode of Family guy on Fox? Man it was so twisted that I laughed because it was hilarious! Here's what happens:

    While at the Quahog Clam Day Fair, Stewie wins an animal contest using a pig with an exaggerated amount of muscle (and fists). After Brian inquires how he came about attaining the genetically modified pig, Stewie explains how he got it from a farm that breeds those specially mutated pigs. Brian insists on seeing this farm, and Stewie brings them both home where he divulges on the "Multiverse" Theory and shows him a remote control that allows the user to travel between alternate universes. After brief stop-overs in the Flinstones universe, Non-Christian Quahog, a Japanese universe, a universe where everyone needs to poop right at that instance, a double-headed universe, Quahog in the Ice Age, and several others, in a vain effort to get home, they stumble upon a universe where humans are subservient to dogs. Brian, enjoying himself in the new universe, gets into a scuffle with Stewie over the remote, and accidentally drops it on the sidewalk, breaking it.
    Finding their way back to the Griffin residence, they introduce themselves incognito to the dog versions of the Griffin family, including a human Brian. Dog Stewie requests to play with human Stewie, where he takes him into the living room and explains his similar situation, that he has also discovered the ability to travel through universes, albeit with precise co-ordinates in mind. He offers to take him back to his own universe, but unfortunately before he can retrieve the device, Dog Peter enrages Stewie, causing Stewie to bite his hand, a detestable offense witnessed by Dog Joe, who locks Stewie up and takes him to the pound to be euthanized. Brian, Human Brian and Dog Stewie sneak into the prison where they break Stewie out and transport both him and Brian back to their universe. As the portal closes, Human Brian, realizing the limitless potential he can hope to achieve in that universe, jumps in. After reaching their destination, Human Brian says his goodbyes, hoping to "be somebody" somewhere in the world, which unfortunately does not work out, because he is hit by a car shortly after leaving.

    Well, at least I thought the episode itself was twisted.

    The Disney Universe was one of the best things I've seen come out of that show in quite some time. That animation WAS great. And that brutal stab at the end totally floored me.... if it were me, i'd make a joke about budgets and all... but still... Really loved how Meg was drawn to be Ursula...

    I also LOVED the stab at Robot Chicken... "Transformers! Thundercats! G.I. Joe! Those shows EXISTED!" just pure perfection in that gag.

    Actually, it was a very good night for the cartoon line up...

    The Simpsons had that episode slamming comic book movies (I'm not a fan of how it degraded into a "Homer is Fat" plotline... but it was still very good)... and I really liked those parody movie posters, and that WONDERFUL line about the producer being behind that parody film "Bad Summer Movie." One of the best gags I've heard in a while...

    The Cleveland show got off to a good start, killing that annoying "Cleveland falls out of Bathtub" joke... I swear they only did that crap to save on animation... and we actually see that Cleveland is an actual character.... they really picked the best possible character for a spinoff.

    And American Dad was at its completely underrated best once again.

    Personally, I'm just waiting for "Something Something Something Darkside," the second Star Wars movie parody.

    I too liked that Disney version of Family Guy. After seeing the current CGI animated, lack-of-songs Disney movies, seeing what they did on Family Guy makes it look like the good old days of Disney again.

    The Cleveland Show might have some possibilities. And it takes place in my home state, Virginia, just like American Dad. I just wonder why they changed Cleveland Jr. from a hyperactive little kid to an overweight slow moving kid?

    And I like the Everyman superhero in the Simpsons. But wouldn't other comic book companies be able to sue Comic Book Guy for mentioning other superheroes in his comic?

    It's a wonderful day FOR PIIIIIIEEEEEE!

    Parallel universes always produce interesting, twistedly funny plots. It's kind of an excuse for the writers to just go nuts. :D

    The Robot Chicken gag was great.

    I enjoyed the "Universe where everything is drawn by Disney as well. Meg as Ursula and Chris as Pooh Bear was some pretty funny stuff. Though that has to be what their sixth or seventh joke about Disney hating the Jews? I don't seems to getting a bit old, but maybe I'm being a bit bias since I'm a huge Disney fan, but still.

    Overall I would say this is one of the better epsiodes of Family Guy in sometime.

    Well... lemme just say I like Disney too (not as much as Looney Tunes, but still)... the most accurate satire of him was the Tv Funhouse "Inside the Disney Vault" cartoon. All I'm saying.

    When you study animation like I do, you learn EVERY single story about the guy, and you learn all the things that were wrong with him. Though there is no excuse for intolerance, you gotta remember, Disney was around in the 20's, 30's, 40's... etc. When being intolerant and racist was seen as acceptable. Some say his Antisemitism comes from a business point of view... I think it may have done with the strike or something. Long story short, he had a LOT of parent issues, and he came from a time when (and check it out... look it up) half the entertainment of the era was making fun of non-whites, and whites of various backgrounds like Italians and the Irish.

    Heck, DC comics wouldn't have a black superhero until the 70's and no one talks about that. Racism and intolerance swept the business for decades. looking back at these practices, they seem downright ghastly and evil... but they were totally acceptable back then.

    I loved this particular family guy episode because the way things were done were done very cleverly (If that's a word, let me know), and I loved that "What a wonderful day for PIE" thing!

    I'm really into animation as well, and I understand everything you're saying. I know cartoons from those times won't as "PC" as they tend to be now a days. I've read books about Walt Disney himself. I know half of the entertainment of the era were making fun of "non-whites" in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. I enjoy reading your posts Drtooth, so forgive me if I sound like a smart guy or whatever, but you're not telling me anything new there.

    What I was trying to say, more or less, is that it's a joke they already done a few times before. I'm not saying I'm offend as a Disney fan (I'm also a huge fan of Looney tunes as well). I probably put it in the wrong way, myself.

    Sounds like an interesting episode, I don't watch it anymore after seeing the second part of that "Stewie kills Louis/ Louis kills Stewie" thing, too much gore, if I wanted something like that I'd watch South Park:eek:, I liked the crossover bit though with American Dad.:D

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Exactly... It's nothing new or interesting, but he's basically a product of his time. But that doesn't stop people for heckling him today about it... dude had other issues, though...

    Anyway... anyone else glad they didn't go into the dimension of having to use bad footage of Conway Twitty instead of writing anything clever. I truly hope never to see that on the show ever again. it was funny the first time... but after tje second or third time it just comes off lazy.

    I would have to say that this is THE funniest episode of Family Guy since the "I Dream of Jesus" episode. Peter singing "Surfin' Bird" over and over again made me laugh like crazy, but the universe hopping the other night was pretty darn funny. As far as the Cleveland Show goes, I think it's of to a good start and hopefully will continue at it's current pace...great concept and I look forward to it every week.

    This week's was alright... personally, my biggest laugh had to have been when they finally made fun of the overuse of the Conway Twitty cut-a-ways. It was funny the first time, but it screams of laziness the other 2.

    Anybody know that the Disney scene alone cost as much as episode Family Guy.

    Also can't believe that last weeks episode of Family Guy actually had the nerve to pulled the Cleveland bathtub joke. :p

    Yeah that really bugged me. I thought since he got his own spinoff show that was the end of that waaaay overused joke, but they found a way to sneek it in, very unoriginal, sometimes it's seems like the writers of Family Guy are waaaaaaaaaay too lazy.

    Anyhow, I must say, right now I'm enjoying the Cleveland Show much more than Family Guy. I just hope they don't turn Cleveland Jr into a male verison of Meg, that would really annoy me.

    I missed that part, and I would've been ticked. Really, it IS lazy. That's why I don't like it half as much as I used to. Family Guy didn't become a cult hit because it did the same exact joke 4 or 5 times... it became a cult show because it was unpredictable and random. And even early on in the revival, they violently killed overused jokes and characters. Man, that and the unfunny Conway Twitty thing.

    I could see the girl becoming the Meg character. They're doing the same thing with Haylee in American Dad, and I'm not happy about it. I mean they gave her a personality to work with and make fun of, and yet, she's the "We don't like you" character. Still love American Dad, though.

    Yeah, just the other day or two ago I saw "Saving Private Brian" again, I sort of liked Vern and Johnny.:p
