I discovered this cartoon when I was about 15. I fell in love with it. Yes, it’s pretty mature and has a lot of adult content. However, it’s also got amazing slapstick humor. I could laugh hysterically at it all day. These are my top five picks, though.
5: Asian Santa
Stewie remembers a moment where the mall had an Asian Santa Claus. It might’ve been a little stereotypical (but that’s normal in “Family Guy”), yet I couldn’t help but laugh. I’m Southeast-Asian myself (Indian).
4: Peter on Red bull
From when Peter starts re-enacting the “And I Feel Like I Just Got Home” music video to right before Lois is on the phone and he hangs up because he can’t find his red bull, I laugh at the moments. I especially liked when Peter impressed Chris, but Chris went on fire—literally.
3: Saggy Naggy
Oh my god—what a disrespectful thing anyone could do to his or her spouse (and probably get in trouble with the law for it in real life). Nevertheless, in the episode where Peter starts his own children’s TV show, he portrays Lois as a nagging and annoying puppet after he disliked her attitude toward him. When the kids beat up Lois at Costmart, that cracked me up.
2: Chris making a dead body pick his nose and eat it
Obviously, this would not be funny in real life. However, in the show, it cracked me up a lot. Meg worked in a funeral home with the bodies and Chris got excited. He even stole one to get him into R-rated movies.
And now… drumroll
1: Peter crying like Snoopy
I laugh so loud and hard that I will not allow myself to watch this outside home. That large mouth and position is absolutely hilarious.
While “Family Guy” has gone kind of far at times (some countries have even banned it), nothing was ever an issue for me. I still enjoy it and laugh at its moments now.
