The family guy

December 8th, 2006 . by Matt

The family guy has to be the funniest animated show on TV at the moment. Although some people say it is a rip off of the Simpsons, I regard it as more of a rip off of everything. The family guy’s take on Cookie Monster from Sesame Street is hilarious.

    tomato,
    omg i’m sorry I even mentioned it…
    i guess it was a bad joke on my part, sorry if i offended you. I
    don’t think outsourcing jobs out of america is good for either sides (its cheap to outsource animation jobs to korea like its cheap to outsource engineering jobs to india) i as an american think its a bad idea and that was what i was really trying to say. goodness tomato! i’m sorry if it sounded like i was shining light on korea or something. I was only trying to congradulate matt for such an awsome post.

    claire,

    You don’t have to be that sorry…

    BTW, Family Guy is funny but it’s really hideous…lots of racial and gender slurs…parental guidance advised by the TV station. I wonder how it is in Autralia, where Matt is.

    I think the Simpsons people made Futurama…this one is hilarious too, but more innocent…maybe not?

    Well, I think the Americans make the best adult cartoons…

    I wouldn’t say it’s hideous, just intentionally not politically correct. But I haven’t seen it since it went off the air the first time, perhaps it’s changed since then.

    The Family Guy joke formula:

    Hey, remember the time when you [random event] + [random celebrity/pop culture thing].

    [Cue clip of random thing, totally unrelated to the actual plot of the show]

    And of course:

    This is almost as bad as the time that [random celebrity/pop culture thing] did [random event]

    [Cue clip of random thing, totally unrelated to the actual plot of the show]

    Must be, I guess, just as much as everything else…

    Agree with James. The show is formulaic and you have to be a pop-culture genius to get their references. After a while it can be pretty tedious.

    oh noes, they outsourced animation jobs to kkorea… idiots. get over it. and listen to clair, groveling, hoping she didnt upset anyone by mentioning korea in a positive light. I lknow this site is anti korea, but come on. u do know that korea has one of the leading animation industries right? alot of animations are created there.

    Aw jeez claire, why bring up Korea? It’s like that Simpsons episode, where they go to buy a pool, and the store sign says “Where the buyer is our chum”. (For those not in the know, chum is chopped up fish used as bait to catch a larger fish). The better comparison would be “In this comment section, where the person mentioning Korea in a positive light is our chum”. “Pretty weak, dude,” as Cartman would say.

    And as he said in the episode featuring Family guy (and their Mohammed cartoon), “Do you have any idea what it’s like? Everywhere I go, “Hey Cartman, you must like Family guy, right? Hey, your sense of humor reminds me of Family Guy, Cartman. I am NOTHING like Family Guy! When I make jokes, they are inherent to a story. Deep, situational and emotional jokes based on what is relevant and has a point! Not just one random, interchangeable joke after another!”

    Later, when Kyle is angered at being imprisoned by Cartman and Bart Simpson, Cartman tells him, “Good Kyle! That’s good anger you’re showing there! See that! That’s emotional character development based on what’s happening in the storyline! Not at all like Family Guy.”

    Count on South Park to tell us where it’s at.

    (Actually, I did like the first season or two of Family guy when it aired (before it was pulled initially). I haven’t seen it since, but if it’s still like it was, I’m sure it pales in comparison to South Park’s satire (I mean, come on, vote for a ‘douche’ or a ‘turd’? South Park simply is where it’s at). That’s not to say I dislike FG, just that it is nowhere as edgy as SP – though I’m sure it’s still pretty damn funny).
