Despite being the most outrageous, irreverent, politically incorrect show on TV, Family Guy has managed to stay on — well, off and on — the air for 20 years!
Since premiering on January 31, 1999, the animated series has faced multiple cancellations, several lawsuits, and endless criticism for its gratuitous violence and stereotyping.
But like a giant, plucky chicken, the FOX comedy refuses to stay down. LOLz!
Creator Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter Thursday to commemorate the anniversary, writing:
Hey so Family Guy premiered 20 years ago today on Fox. After several cancellations, multiple time slots and a lawsuit from Carol Burnett, we somehow still exist! Here’s to still existing!
