Any hardcore Family Guy fan can prattle away about the show’s most iconic moments, from Brian and Stewie’s love/hate relationship to the whole “stupid Meg” meme that perforated most of the later seasons. But no matter how many episodes you’ve binged during a long weekend, you probably have never noticed this one thing that involves their heads. It’s a little weird, especially because we’ve never noticed it ourselves, but this face morph video proves that crudeness isn’t the only thing the characters have in common. Watch the video above to see it unfold for yourself.
Although we love learning little nerdy tidbits about the show, on a more serious note, Family Guy has been in the news a lot lately in relation to the #MeToo movement. Surprisingly, the cartoon called out many alleged sexual predators like Kevin Spacey, Charlie Rose, and Harvey Weinstein years before the allegations went mainstream. “Obviously, it’s a terrible thing to say, how we’ve had a lot of good luck predicting sexual predators,” executive producer Alec Sulkin said. “But I do think a lot of people — like Kevin Spacey — there have always been rumors out there about him. So we will just kind of say those things. We write things that we hear about and then a year and a half later, they’re on TV and then 10 years later they happen.”
Series creator Seth MacFarlane agreed and said the writers at the show are a lot more plugged into the comings and goings of Hollywood than we realize. “The Family Guy writers have always had very open ears,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “And I think a lot of these things were things that were talked about and whispered about in Hollywood.”
Now on its 16th season, the show is still going strong and shows no signs of slowing down — much to the chagrin of Seth, surprisingly, who revealed in 2011 that he wished the show would end! “I talk to the fans and in a way I’m kind of secretly hoping for them to say we’re done with it,” he said. “There are plenty of people who say the show is kind of over the hill … but still the vast majority go pale in the face when I mention the possibility.” No, Seth! We definitely would not be OK with that!
