Worst Family Guy Moments


The Top Ten

1 Pearl Gets Hit By a Truck and Dies

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

That's not even funny - Chaotixhero

That episode and song were both great.

You mean from Spongebob? - Officialpen

2 Brian Dies

Truly depressing even worst The Griffins get another dog Vinnie who just plain sucks as a character and they completely forget all about Brian all except for Stewie. - egnomac

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.

Poor Brian

I like dogs but HE DESERVED IT - Feliciafurrypaws4ever

3 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 ...more

Made me so uncomfortable the gore in family guy is unbearable to look at

Ya know what would be funny? Peter doing something horrible and nobody trying to stop him.

The beached whale needed love. - Feliciafurrypaws4ever

4 Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q

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 whole episode is just awful and hard to watch. - egnomac

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.

I hate watching this type of abuse in real life! t was just awful!

5 Quagmire rapes Marge Simpson and murders the Simpson family

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

Even little Maggie Simpson - Officialpen

Simpsons is better

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! - MJfan119

6 Jillian Breaks Up With Brian

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

7 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. - egnomac

8 Quagmire's Dad Gets a Sex Change
9 Peter Tries to Marry Chris

This was officially going too far for Family Guy. - egnomac

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

Who the hell thought this was a good idea?!

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

10 Aquaman refusing to help the woman being raped

I hate this show so much.

The Contenders

11 The Brian and Stewie Episode with No Cutaways
12 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.

13 Stewie makes Brian eat poop from Stewie’s 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... - Officialpen

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

How is this even funny?!

There is no way to make domestic abuse funny. - egnomac

15 Boston Marathon Controversy

Seth Macfarlane didn't even know the bombing would happen, so don't put the blame on him - jameshoward

16 Peter kills Quagmire's cat when he attempts to shave it.

And the worst part is he kept going until the cats "nine lives" were gone - Yatagarasu

Peter you idiot I love cats 🐈 - Officialpen

17 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. - AinezoChan

18 Cleveland Leaves the Show and Starts His Own Spin-off Series

It could have been stewie & Brian - Chaotixhero

This is one of the absolute worst things.

At least cleveland was a more pleasant main character than peter and stan smith.

19 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.

20 Lois insulting all her kids for no reason

HOW IS THIS PILE FUNNY? Call Girl is also a very bad episode.

My mom never insults me, - Officialpen

21 "If There Were a God, Would He Have Put You Here On Earth With a Flat Chest and a Fat Ass?"
22 Brian Gives Stewie Herpes
23 Evil Stewie

The scenes with Evil Stewie and the domestic abuse episode were some of the most violent and uncomfortable scenes on the show.

Wasn't this Classic Family Guy? The golden seasons.

24 Peter Asks Lois Which Way to Slit His Wrists

This is the worst joke, as it teaches depressed people how to slit their wrists. Why was that even necessary?

25 Brian Finds Out He Has a Son

If Brian abused Dylan in the same way an abusive dad beats his own son, I would send him a thank you card (don't be offended. Dylan deserves it anyway).

I swear whenever that little bastard (Dylan) came onscreen I wanted to carve out his eyes and set him on fire. He is one of the most irritating characters I've ever seen on this show. If I met him in real life, I would sell his ass to the detention center.

I'm not even sure Dillian is really his son at all he looks nothing like Brian and plus his a dog - egnomac

I hated dillan's guts!

26 Brian insults Meg’s appearance when he tries to convert her to Atheism

I have no problem with Seth MacFarlane's beliefs, but he can't just say these things

27 Stewie Becoming Pregnant with Brian's Babies

Could you believe this made me want to quit Family Guy forever?

See how stupid Family Guy is.

28 "Terri Schiavo: the Musical"
29 Elmer Fudd Violently Kills Bugs Bunny In a Cutaway Gag

Relax people. Bugs is only a drawing he's not real.

Animal abuse - Feliciafurrypaws4ever

Poor Bugs - Officialpen

Why Bugs - Officialpen

30 The "You Have AIDS" Sequence

Really!? A Season 4 Cutaway
But I Thought Season 4 Was The best Season

31 Chris teaching his grandfather, Carter, how to masturbate
32 Carter creating a cure for cancer and not revealing it to the entire world
33 Lois Makes Out With Meg's Boyfriend

Ew, this is pedophilic. - AinezoChan

34 James Woods Returns and Steals Peter's Identity

What is with this show's obsession with james woods?

35 Quagmire Accidentally Marries Charmese

What the hay? Isn't he already married? - AinezoChan

36 Guy Kills his Own Brother to Get Out of Going Out with Meg

Is going out with Meg really that bad that they would murder their own family members just get out of it, its just really awful and disturbing.

37 A raccoon chews on Stewie’s exposed brain

That is uncomfortable to watch. - AinezoChan

Gross - Feliciafurrypaws4ever

38 Brian cuts off his ear

I hope this messed up show gets canceled soon... - Officialpen

39 "Ladies and gentlemen... Mr. Conway Twitty"

Total waste of time.

40 Prom Night Dumpster Baby

You people do know this was based on a true story do you?

42 Chris masturbating to his own mother
43 Brian piercing Stewie's ear with a pin

Imagine him doing it inside of Stewie's ear! My god that would be horrific! 0.0

This is one screwed up show.

44 Quagmire's extreme sexuality

I believe he's a cartoon version of Trent Morrison. I still like Quagmire though. - AinezoChan

45 Peter Getting Into a Feud With Ernie All Because of a Coupon
46 Stewie and Brian trying to legalize Marijuana

What? This is so messed up and out of character for them. - AinezoChan
