Top Ten Best Family Guy Episodes

Family Guy is superb, but there are indeed episodes that stand out from all the rest.

The Top Ten

1 Petarded

I knew as soon as I clicked on this list that this exact episode would be on top. Best family guy ever! I love the game night at the beginning of the episode - RandomAccount297

first episode of family guy I ever saw, freakin hilarious!

I love this episode! There's this song they cut from the episode (It's on the DVD extended edition, on the Hulu version, and I think on Netflix) called "Peter is Slow", and it's AMAZING. You can just look up "Family Guy Peter is Slow" and it will come up. The song is short but great. The song got cut for use of the word "retarded".

It is funny as hell! The plot is predictable but it takes a twist and it makes it an AMAZING and funny episode! - spodermanfan1000

2 Road to the Multiverse

Look at him, Brian. Free in a universe where can... OH MY GOD HE GOT HIT BY A CAR!

This takes an infrequently explored idea of going across far more than one other universe than their own, but across other possibilities and makes it fascinating by executing the idea correctly. This particular episode had me returning to explore more of episodes like these even after the fact I saw this show as an infant. It has the right pinch of humor to appeal to the people they want to catch the attention of, and also has a good amount of humor to appeal to more than just adolescents, to apply to those that want to see Family Guy after years and years of tuning in when they were adolescents themselves.

Without any doubt the best Family Guy episode of all-time. Seth MacFarlane is such a genius.

Should be #1, it's easily the best - Maxo

3 And Then There Were Fewer

This is literally my favorite episode in the entire series! I love survival/horror specials where people have to find a way to survive and investigate who could have killed someone. And now that they've recreated that with Family Guy, I had to watch it and I loved it! (SPOILER) And the ending was so unpredictable! DIANE SIMMONS?! She was probably the last person you'd expect! For God's sake, SEAMUS would be more convincing. And then Loid finds out and Diane tries to kill her. Now this is where is got really unpredictable, when Diane was about to pull the trigger, she got shot, fell into the water, and the mysterious hero was Stewie. Of course, the only reason he saved his mom was because he wanted to be the first to kill her, but it's the thought that counts

This episode is #1! I love the jokes and everyone is a suspect no one is 100% innocent. Its like a detective episode everyone had a funny part in this episode and everyone reacted different to the deaths of various people through he episode. If got me glued to my seat trying to figure out who was the killer.

This is one of my favorite episodes of Family guy. I love this episode because it is kind of different than the movie Clue (1985). Speaking of this episode of Family guy, I have been watching this episode on Netflix in my phone a lot. I just like to watch something mysterious and scary like Clue and this episode.

My favorite episode! Wish there were more episodes like this... - mdrake0495

5 Da Boom

A funny episode about the end of the world. I love Stewie in this episode and who could forget the chicken?

The ending is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen, even by Family Guy's standards, which is saying a LOT.

This was the first GREAT episode of family guy. The end of the world theme is handled brilliantly, and who could forget about the debut of the chicken fight gag. This is a classic episode at the least. - GreninjaGuy

Usually I don't like season 1 and 2 episodes but the Boom was a GREAT episode. It has funny jokes and is a classic. - spodermanfan1000

7 Back to the Pilot

One of the best and funniest episodes ever when Stewie and Brian go back in time for a ball he buried in the backyard. Until Brian alters the past when he tells his former self about 9/11 he prevents it and makes the world worse. My favorite part was when everyone all types of Stewie and Brian's were coming in and one of them had Peter come with them. - rockrockmountain

Awesome episode! It really reminded the viewers on how much the show has changed and developed throughout the years. Not only that, but the gag at the end where a version of Brian and Stewie were spinning things saying: "This is life for some reason! " is one of the funniest in the show. The 9/11 gags were pretty good as well.

Best episode ever, I loved how they went back in time to the very first episode and got themselves in a paradox. Shat would have been absolutely AWESOME is if in the firdt episode you could see the extra Stewie and Brian in some parts, it would have taken a lot of planning though. This is closely followed by 'And then there were fewer'.

It's from Season 10, which automatically makes it a bad episode. Get it off the list. - lamourieparkinson

8 Road to Rhode Island

I love all of the Family Guy episodes, but this one is a personal favorite. It reminds me of the good old days of Family Guy, where Stewie was actually diabolical and evil, and made the most hilarious wise-cracks about Brian's dead mother. Somehow, the fact that the two didn't even like each other and were thrown together on the trip made it fun, hilarious, and just overall awesome. The overall episode had the funniest jokes (in my humble opinion) and the story somehow manages to mix the feeling of nostalgia, a would-be sad storyline (if it weren't for Stewie's constant jokes) and fun. That, in my opinion, is the making of a good episode. Also, the song blew me away as well

This is great. Really great. It's the start of a beautiful friendship between two unlikely friends, yet not soppy and sentimental, it's hilarious and witty and clever, and the part where Brian is taken from the puppy mill and when he finds out his mother is dead should have been sad, but are saved by 'Hey, does anyone have thumbs? No? ' and Stewie's various witty remarks, especially the 'And God said to Abraham' part. This is a classic episode that will remain in the hearts of family guy fans generations after the show comes to a close.

Road to Rhode Island... Where do I start? I loved every little bit about it; from the jokes to the emotional moments to the not-so emotional moments... It was just a spectacular episode. I loved the music, the story, the animations, and the scene on the box-car at the end was one that I will remember forever. Road to Rhode Island's song was also just AMAZING.

My favorite the song was amazing - stoner69

9 Blue Harvest

I think this episode of the A Blue Harvest was so awesome because Peter told his family a story about Star Wars A New Hope. IT'S A BEST EPISODE EVER BECAUSE IT'S THE STAR WARS EPISODE

When they tried to take a couch was the best moment

This is just epic! Cleveland is so funny as R-2 - robertoantonioortuso

The coach - Ilikegames

10 Stewie Kills Lois

Stewie is upset that Lois goes on a cruise without him so he kills Lois but she isn't dead she comes back after Peter was framed by Stewie when they get back home the family is held hostage by Stewie and Stewie goes to Washington D.C. using Brian as his sheild he soon becomes world ruler. - rockrockmountain

This one was good and the ending wasn't exactly suprising. I knew even stewie would of done all that. You know stewie acts like he is going to destroy the world but he actually tries to save it in his time machine with Brian

When you figure out that that was a simulation you say phew that was close.

So funny. Lots off jokes packed into this one - Liamcog

18 Lois Kills Stewie

I like the part where Peter and Lois switched bodies and that the whole thing was a simulation.

I like the song the list in this episode

Basically same thing as Stewie kills Lois because it’s a 2 parter - Spongebob12

19 Road to Germany

I have no idea why this is so low. It should be top 10 for sure. Episode was so funny.

Fire underrated

20 Stu and Stewie's Excellent Adventure

An awesome episode showing the future although not as good as road to multiverse

This should be top 10

21 McStroke

This episode is honestly the funniest in my opinion.
When Peter has a stroke and crashes his car into a tree beside the river and the rowers are going up the river shouting "Stroke, Stroke Stroke" and Peter is like "STOP MOCKING ME! " hahah, awesome.

It's mustache kinda morning chris. I watched the sunrise in my jeans jean shirt and jean jacket

It is the best!

This one should be higher on the list. this is simply one of the funniest episodes, only losing to "Petarded".

22 The Simpsons Guy

This makes a good Family Guy episode, but it makes a HORRIBLE Simpsons episode. The episode is FILLED with your typical, distasteful, offensive Family Guy humor. - lamourieparkinson

If you probably love The Simpsons, I bet you're gonna love this episode too!

A cross between the Simpsons and family guy #awesome

23 Dial Meg for Murder

I Meant To Finish With "Of The Episode" Sorry

Meg Is A Badass In The Middle Of The Epy

Meg curbstomps peter and destroys eyeryting whats not to love about this episode?

24 Brian & Stewie

No cutaways, no music, and no other characters than the two in the title. It's very interesting to see Family Guy take such a serious tone with an episode, and I feel that this one does it the best. Plus, the conversation Brian and Stewie have is very heartwarming to listen to, and ends on a beautiful emotional moment. - DemonSpider253

This is the best episode for sure. Even though it's not really that funny, it has the most feel. I love family guy and this episode really warms my heart.

Stewie and Brian act more like best friends in this episode which I found really awesome!

The poop scene murdered any chance this episode ever had of being close to acceptable. - lamourieparkinson

25 It's a Trap

Also who's cat...

Admiral ackbar “It’s a trap” - Spongebob12

"Now give me forty dollars! "
"Bu-but I don't have forty dollars. "
"Fine. I undestand. I'll come back tomorrow for eighty! And I'll be taking this welcome mat! "

I love this part!

Besides that awkward incest between Meg and Chris, this was an OK episode!

29 420

Brian gets marijuana legalized with the help of Stewie.

32 Family Gay

I love Brian's cousin Jasper so much! Hilarious episode!

35 The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire

This one was really hilirous..

36 E. Peterbus Unum

Oh my god this will have you laughing, haha, can't touch me. "Oh, and would you also like a laser beam that'll scratch your ass from space? ", "they have those? ":D

41 A Very Special Family Guy Freakin' Christmas

42 From Method to Madness

I actully love this eposode very much, Stewie is so hilarious, this should be in the top ten in a few more monthes

44 Something, Something, Something, Dark Side

46 The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro, and also some wasted guest stars from time to time.

This is really exciting and shows what good friend stewie and brian are, more than any road trip episode.brilliant ideas and writing, though it's a bummer that bertram died.my all time favourite.

Dude don't put the series logo

I love this episode!
"Stewie can't hear you! Only a kiss will wake him up."
"Better go get meg."
"Oh- ah. Wha-"

47 Death Has a Shadow

It's the first episode, so of course it's going to make the top 50. That's practically a requirement that ALL shows have to follow. - lamourieparkinson

48 Back to the Woods

I can't even watch this episode, hate James Woods! - sryanbruen

This should not be on this list

49 Roads to Vegas

HILARIOUS episode, I can't stop re-watching. It makes me so sad that this will be the last Road-to episode. I loved the alternate stories of Stewie and Brian and their clones, and I especially loved the ending.
"Sir, we can't give you any money, but if you have a bowl and some milk, we can give you a pretty healthy way to start your day! " (Shortly after which, Stewie is killed. )

Are You Kidding Me, This Episode Sucked. Why did Seth have to make lucky and unlucky clones.

ROAD to Vegas.

The episode is literally called "Roads to Vegas" so the listing is actually correct. - lamourieparkinson

ROAD to Vegas (singular).
... not ROADS to Vegas (plural)...
There aren't two or more roads, moron.
