Top Ten Things Family Guy Fails at That the Simpsons Excels At


The Top Ten

1 Telling a Story

Especially the Treehouse of Horror story. It's the best!

The Simpsons is an original. Family Guy is not and it's a phony. Cancel Family Guy!

2 Likeable Characters

Do you like The Greased Up Deaf Guy, Herbert, Vinny?

3 Being Timeless

Family Guy will never be timeless.
The Simpsons can be on for hours on television in the morning or evening.
There is going to be a sequel to The Simpsons movie.
Family Guy is immature.

The Simpsons will be timeless. Family Guy won't be timeless. Family Guy will be cancelled and the more years Family Guy gets, the less it will be remembered and the more it will be forgotten. Seth MacFarlane should really end Family Guy, American Dad, or any other works of his.

The Simpsons will always be remembered. Once Family Guy ends everybodys gonna forget it even existed because of how ephemeral the humor is. - Tacosarelife

Sorry The Simpsons is much older than family guy. Give family guy a few more years and it'll be timeless

4 Being Touching
5 Humor

Its South Park and The Simpsons in a blender. Yeah yeah, say South Park is more mature but its just toilet humour and gore like Family Guy.

Family Guy and Seth MacFarlane are 💩.
Cancel Family Guy!

6 Originality

The Simpsons is real and original. Family Guy is a phony sack of fraud.
Cancel Family Guy!

7 Not Shoving Beliefs Down Your Throat
8 Being Serious

The Simpsons are more serious, while family guy is plain offensive. Family guy may have offensive jokes that upset real-life moral crusaders (like the PTC), but the simpsons have in-universe moral crusaders (like Marge as tragical hero) who react realistically to the offensive jokes.

True its true

9 Keeping the Character Traits Consistent Through Episodes
10 More Adult

If The Simpsons was like Family Guy I would've got bored of it in my teens.

The Contenders

11 Being Boring

Family Guy is crap waste of time. Cancel Family Guy!

Whoever said family guy better is wrong Simpson's is way better

Family guy is better

12 Being Funny

Seth MacFarlane used to working on funny cartoons -- Dexter's Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel, and Johnny Bravo. I would watch any reruns of them over Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show any day.

Family Guy = 💩
Please cancel Family Guy.

13 Better Animation

Especially the older Simpson episodes!

14 Not Having Child Abuse

People will say "oh but Homer strangles Bart! " well how about breaking through a wall and strangling, its just silliness, a joke.

15 Less Toilet Humour

This is why I like The Simpsons!

16 Having Morals

The Simpsons have a sense of chivalry and honour. Family Guy doesn't and it needs to "" for its 💩. 👽
