Worst Family Guy Moments

The Top Ten
1 Peter Disembowels a Beached Whale With a Forklift

How is this supposed to be funny? I don't want to see a two minute scene of a whale getting ripped apart by a forklift in a gory and realistic fashion. At least with moments like Quagmire killing the Simpsons and "Horton Hears Domestic Abuse In The Next Apartment, And Doesn't Call The Police" we don't have to SEE the gore. In most Family Guy episodes, the blood looks cartoonish, but in this scene, the whale and all its entrails are drawn as realistically as possible. Black comedy only works if the scene is over the top. This is why "Prom Night Dumpster Baby" works (nobody would have expected the babies to sing in smooth baritone voices and dance away from the garbage), and the whale scene fails. Mutilating an innocent animal is never funny, but the scene doesn't even try to be over the top. It just presents the graphic animal abuse itself as the joke. In contrast, the joke in "Prom Night Dumpster Baby" is how the babies act in a way that's unexpected (performing a musical number), not about babies dying or parental abandonment. The song itself actually CRITICIZES the terrible actions of women who abandon their newborns (My fanny needs a blanket/And somebody to spank it/I miss my mom/But she's at the prom), and the babies are able to fully walk. The whale scene is too mean spirited and realistic to be funny, not to mention, there's no real joke other than the lame, unfunny pun at the end of the scene. I hate this scene!

2 Brian Dies

I don't care they killed him off. He was becoming more and more unlikeable. What I do have a problem with is the way they did it. It was clear that it was a ratings trap and the way it was so gruesome and the fact everyone seemed out of character in Life of Brian. And all of that for what to bring him back 3 episodes later? Oh yeah and let's not forget that Brian becomes a completely unlikeable douche when he does come back

How is this at the top? A horrible character dies, it should be treated as a good thing. The only bad thing out of this episode was that he came back and decided to be an even bigger ass.

3 Peter Asks Lois Which Way to Slit His Wrists

I still can't believe this "joke" was allowed to air. Seth come on now you know your age demographic is teenagers and young adults. Why the hell would you think that was acceptable? I almost don't even consider it a joke. There's bad and dark jokes but this is in its own category altogether

It's official Seth Mcfarlen doesn't give two krusty burgers. Whoever he hurts.
Rape jokes: ok
Suicide jokes: yep ok
Mocking religion well duh of course ok
Mocking the disabled: totally fine
But nudity: shame on you!
You should be ashamed of yourself Mcfarlen!

4 Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q

The absolute worst episode in the series. You don't just suddenly take a serious tone on a sensitive topic when you've been joking about it for the entirety of the show. It comes off as a disturbing episode that's not even a PSA about domestic abuse and it certainly isn't funny.

Macfarlane's crew only wrote this just to cover their tails from the infamous seahorse seashell party episode. Well guess what macfarlane? It's not covering your tail it's making you a hypocrite!

This was too hard for me. Not funny at all. There is real life abuse in reality! I am happy that Brenda's boy friend did die.

5 Boston Marathon Controversy
6 Meg Apologizes to Chris, Lois, and Peter For Letting Them Know About Everything They've Done To Her

She shouldn't have apologized. They all got what they deserved and what Meg said was absolutely true. I bet Seth MacFaralane just wanted to keep making jokes about Meg.

Meg had every right to finally snap back at everyone but why take it back? So the moral here is if you're in an abusive relationship to stay in it because of the abusers egos…

7 Pearl Gets Hit By a Truck and Dies

Was a sad scene until Dr. Hartman ruined it by shouting to everyone "Who wants to see a dead body".

That episode and song were both great.

I just wanna point out that there was the time Peter told Chris to stop treating his girlfriend like a human and that he should treat her like crap. Also pearl was a great character

8 Brian Gives Stewie Herpes

This is Brian at his worst in my opinion. He knowingly gave Stewie an infant by the way a lifelong STD and had the nerve to act like it wasn't a big deal. And not only that but to do the same thing to Chris too..I really wish Brian was still dead because of this..

I'm sure it was justified. It was probably karma from all those years of Stewie trying to kill Lois.

9 Quagmire Rapes Marge Simpson and Murders the Simpson Family

Oh Seth Mcfarlen still can't admit/ accept that The Simpsons is and always will be better than Family Guy. Sad sad man

I love the Simpsons Hate family guy!

Remember to never talk bad of Family Guy because they will kill your characters.

This is why I prefer The Simpsons over Family Guy any day.

10 A Raccoon Chews on Stewie’s Exposed Brain

That is uncomfortable to watch.

The Contenders
11 Peter Tries to Marry Chris

Let's just forget that OK? Because that was one huge reason why peter is so stupid.

Do you see why DVD sales made this show rebooted after it was cancelled twice.

This was officially going too far for Family Guy.

12 Quagmire Speech for Brenda in Screams of Silence
13 Brian Not Caring That He Gave Stewie Herpes
14 Lois Makes Out With Meg's Boyfriend

This was just awful. needless to say, this family is going ot give meg a mental breakdown

15 Jillian Breaks Up With Brian

Terrible, even worst at the end Peter and everyone rubs it in his face.

16 Quagmire's Dad Gets a Sex Change
17 Stewie Makes Brian Eat Poop from His Diaper

I have a feeling that he tells the dog that his poop is chocolate and his pee is Apple juice and then the dog falls for it or whatever...

18 Aquaman Refuses to Help the Woman Being Raped

Seth Mcfarlen is the worst person ever! He's a homophobobic, mysogonystic, skin headded, White supremisystic, xenophobic,-religion hating, liberal, leftist, atheist jerk! (Takes breath) Who thinks he's the best thing ever!

19 Brian Hallucinates on Magic Mushrooms
20 Joyce Reveals the Lois Was a Former Porn Star

A hard lesson learned by Lois, never tell anyone that you use to be a porn star especially a news reporter.

21 The Brian and Stewie Episode with No Cutaways
22 Meg decides to continue to be the "lightning rod" for her family by letting them continue to abuse her

This Meg abuse thing needs to stop. I love Meg but I hate how she's abused.

23 "Horton Hears Domestic Abuse In The Next Apartment, But Doesn't Call The Police"

Seriously how/why did Mcfarlen think anyone, would find this funny! Why can I see Seth being a wife beater.

There is no way to make domestic abuse funny.

24 Joe Gets a Leg Transplant and Acts Like a Total Jerk to Everyone

Why must a character always have to be a jerk after he/she is cured from an something he/she had for a long time.

25 Three Tough Guys Take Peter, Quagmire, and Joe's Booth and Don't Get Punished for it

More like Seth MacFarlame. The entire episode (Herpe the Love Sore) in general was terrible. Too many of our them were out of character. Doesn't everyone hate mean-spirited episodes when a character doesn't deserve it?

Here's how I would've solved it. They can stay at the bar, but, they could create a VIP seat for them since they fight in the war.

Ah yes so soldiers can do whatever they want to without being punished for it.
