Reasons Why Family Guy Is Better Than The Simpsons

The Top Ten

1 Family Guy Takes Risks

Too many. In fact, I'm surprised Seth MacFarlane hasn't been sewed yet.

Family guy is funny for adults Simpsons is for children family guy will make fun of anything or everything they will take it all the way

Yeah but South Park does it better.

Risks that aren't worth taking. - BeatlesFan1964

2 Family Guy Has Better Characters

Here's what I think.

The original Peter is funnier and more caring than Homer, he may make fun of Meg, but he has a soft spot for her and doesn't attempt to strangle her to death like a certain ass.

Lois is less annoying and has a better voice than Marge, though to be fair Marge is more caring for her children.

Lisa and Meg are both underrated and I feel for the two, Lisa has to deal with bullying while Meg has harsh treatment from her family.

Bart is funnier than Chris, though I don't hate the latter. I also feel sorry for Bart nowadays, as he's ridiculed too.

Stewie is better than Maggie, he's more productive, funny, and he is more well-known.

The Simpsons and Family Guy are both tied, neither are as better as each other. Both need to die nowadays.

I disagree with this Brian, stewie, Peter, quagmire and joe are the only ones who are funny. Louis has her moments

Lets see
Homer or Peter-I like both but Homer is funnier
Marge or Lois-I absolutely hate Lois while I love Marge so its Marge
Lisa or Meg-Both are so underrated, they are so misunderstood but I like Lisa better
Bart or Chris-Bart is funny while Chris is boring but has his moments now and then
Maggie or Stewie-I have to say both, I love Stewie because he is evil and smart and I love Maggie because she is smart and cute.

Seriously? Brian stewie peter quagmire and joe aren't the only funny characters. you obviously don't watch family guy. It's way better than the Simpsons and the other hilarious characters are mayor west, Herbert, Cleveland, consuela, mort, Carl, dr. Hartman, greased up deaf guy, Ollie Williams, I mean, seriously?

3 Stewie

Stewie makes family guy.. - brad76

Family Guy is a ripoff of the Simpsons same character numbers don't count Brian he is a dog see watch homer peter marge Lois Maggie who is better than stewie cross Bart Lisa and meg meg is just like Lisa and Lisa was made first so let family guy be cancelled and Simpsons are doing better than family guy like always.

I love how everyone overreacted about this list. - Therandom

I still prefer the Simpsons but stepwise and brain are legendary

4 The Simpsons Are Trying to Be Like Family Guy Now

WRONG! The Simpsons came BEFORE Family Guy and then Family Guy copied them!

Lies! The simpsons was created way before family guy - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Actually, no their not. Lots of kids watch the Simpsons, so their making it cleaner.

Yeah I agree Family Guy is based on racism, being offensive to many MANY people, and they rely on poop, snot, and fart jokes. Family Guy is so stupid and offensive that there is even a pervert.

Exactly. The Simpsons has become more random less grounded.

5 The Simpsons Is Dated

Simpsons started on BBC 1996 moved to Channel 4 in 2004, started on Sky One in 1990. The Simpsons is still funny. Even stupid episodes like Skinner being an imposter was funny. "Skinner likes dog food" then Homer eating it. Skinners name and Bart laughing, "Up yours" Abe trying to pull his mother, "In your dreams" which Abe took as a compliment and went to sleep and then getting him back to Springfield.

The Simpsons was comedy gold for about seven seasons (or more, depending on your opinion), nowadays it just reeks of age and it makes irritated to see how much of a sellout it is nowadays.

No it's not. - BeatlesFan1964

6 Family Guy Makes Funny Jokes, The Simpsons Are Afraid To

The Simpsons have made dark comedy jokes. Usually episodes that people hate in later seasons.
Family Guy just wants to offend everything on the planet, if we ever find a real alien they will probably offend it.

Look, Family Guy and The Simpsons are some of my favourite T.V. shows but by the way it looks you only ever laugh at swearing or blood - Unnamed Google User Remade

No, Family Guy just offends others while the Simpsons actually try to make jokes.

Family Guy offends/insults, and there's a huge difference between offending and making a joke. The Simpsons on the other hand when they make jokes they don't offends tons of people. Unlike Family Guy. - MJfan119

7 It Has So Many Gags

Of your talking about cutaway gags, that's not a good thing.

8 Peter

Peter used to be a better father than Homer, but nowadays they're both tied.

Peter is so funny - JazzyJulie

Homer. - BeatlesFan1964

Every Peter’s cutaway is making me laugh

9 It's funnier

I like simpsons better but I have to admit that Family Guy makes me laugh more. - Spongebob12

Family Guy is rude

10 The Simpsons Should Have Been Cancelled at Season 16

Family guy should have been cancelled at season 1

No it shouldn't. As bad as it has become, I couldn't imagine a world without The Simpsons. But Family Guy actually got better as it went on, later seasons are better than early seasons. The Simpsons is still capable of good episodes ("You Don't Have to Live Like a Referee", "Brick Like Me", "I Won't Be Home for Christmas"), but Family Guy is still consistently good.

Family guy has been canceled twice the Simpsons 0

No no no the Simpsons needed to be cancelled at season 11. Season 10 was the last good season.

The Contenders

11 Wrong, Simpsons is better than Family Guy

Homer is the best and doh will be remembered for 100 years. Peter however, the funniest thing he did was fight big chicken. That will be forgotten in 1 or 2 years

I can Barely Laugh At Simpsons don't know why? Family Guy Makes Me Laugh Until I run out of breath - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

Both Family Guy and The Simpsons and Other Cartoons is Not My Favorite Because Most of Them Have Flaws

Very true - BeatlesFan1964

The Simpsons is only dated to people who are bored of it and need to just watch Family Guy.

12 Everyone Looks Like They Would In Real Life and Not Yellow

Oh whatever, do you remember a kids show called Doug that's realistic right?
Anyway Family Guy characters have chins that look like male private parts.

Just because they yellow is not bad it's a cartoon

It's just a style of animation, just like South Park looks cut out.

That's what makes the Simpsons great. It's creative having characters with yellow skin.

13 Family Guy Has Done Star Wars

Everyone does Star Wars.

So has the Simpsons.

"Simpsons did it first." - doodie

So Star Wars is boring

14 Half of The Simpsons Male Characters Are Played by Girls

So what? That means that they have talent! - kendraaatje

This person is a sexist whoever made this

Half of The Simpsons Male Characters Are Played by Girls? You mean Bart, Ralph, Nelson, the three bullies and millhouse. Yeah that's really half the cast of male characters (sarcasm).

The fact is that 99% of the male characters are played by men, and the simpsons is way better than fam guy.

Same with Futurama, so what? This isn't a real reason.

15 The Simpsons Have Gone Too Far

I think this means that its been on too long, which, I'm sorry to say, it has.

Umm no it's the other way around. - MJfan119

Actually, it's the other way around. Family Guy goes too far by making fun of blacks, Jews, democrats and gays. The Simpsons have never made fun of blacks, Homer doesn't hate someone for their religion, just doesn't believe in one, they give both sides of the political party, but they have made fun of gays, just not as much.

16 Bart Is So Unfunny

I like Bart because he doesn't want to physically hurt anyone, just pull pranks on others. He can also be wise. Bullies once picked on his new friend for being a Muslim, and he said that you shouldn't pick on someone because of their religion.

Someone is saying Bart is too fat what about chris

Are you retarded? - BeatlesFan1964

I still like Bart.

17 Seth MacFarlane Is Hosting the Oscars

HOW DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH FAMILY GUY BEING BETTER THAN THE SIMPSONS?

18 The Simpsons relies on Celebrity Cameos

My favourite celebrity cameos in Family Guy is Michael Jackson. But I like other celebs too.

19 Meg

Meg, Brian and Stewie make Family Guy!

What's so great about Meg? All they do with her, is tortur her. - nintendofan126

I like Meg.

20 Lisa's Jokes Are So Forced It Hurts
21 Too Many Episodes About Lisa

The episodes about Homer are worse to be honest. - KennyRulz244444

Lisa is such a whiny bitch!

22 Moe always has a chance at a main storyline in Simpsons episodes
23 Marge Constantly Criticizes Homer

Lois criticizes peter more.

Marge is nicer of a mother than Lois.

Peter is nicer of a father than Homer. (in the first three-four seasons anyway) - KennyRulz244444

24 Meg's abuse is funnier than Bart's strangles.

Yeah! Take that Meg fanboys!

25 The Simpsons Has Marge

She sours the whole show lois is 20x better - Ilyas678

26 The worst Simpsons episodes are better

Newer Episodes of Simpsons Make Me Cringe So Bad - s646451

27 Peter tries to marry his son

Peter is discusting!

28 Some guy killed his brother so he didn't have to go to the prom with Meg
29 Milhouse Is So Annoying

Milhouse is one of the few likable characters of The Simpsons nowadays. - KennyRulz244444

30 The Simpsons once used a Ke$ha song as an intro to an episode

They Also Used Lady Gaga As A Minor Character? So What's Your Point - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

31 Peter and Lois Have a Stronger Marriage

You can actually see why Peter and Lois are together, for one they are just as bad as each other.

Peter and Lois may be jerks at times, but at least they don't constantly run away or divorce each other instantly.

Peter's also a better father than... Homer... in my opinion. - KennyRulz244444

Homer Doesn't Abuse His Children (if you count that many times he straggles Bart) - WWEWBMortalKombatFan
