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 ...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

2 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

3 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

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

Uhh this never happened

6 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.

7 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.

8 Jillian Breaks Up With Brian

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

9 Brian Not Caring That He Gave Stewie Herpes
10 Joyce Reveals the Lois Was a Former Porn Star

Never become a porn star.

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

It was funny at the end - Chaotixhero

The Contenders

11 Quagmire's Dad Gets a Sex Change
12 Aquaman refusing to help the woman being raped

I hate this show so much.

Seth Mcfarlen is the worst person ever! He’s a homophobe, a mysogonyst, a xenobhobe, a religiouioushobe, libtard, atheist jerk! Who thinks he’s the best thing ever! - MJfan119

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

Eew sounds bad as Mega Babies.

14 Brian hallucinating on Magic Mushrooms

This was so disturbing

15 The Brian and Stewie Episode with No Cutaways
16 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.

17 "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

Seriously why did Mcfarlen think anyone, this would be funny! Why can I see Seth being a wife beater. - MJfan119

18 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?

19 Boston Marathon Controversy

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

A 9/11 joke.

20 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

21 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.

Why does this show even exist?

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

22 The three tough guys taking Peter, Quagmire, and Joe's booth and not getting punished for it

Those karma houdinis, GRRR! - AinezoChan

23 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

24 "If There Were a God, Would He Have Put You Here On Earth With a Flat Chest and a Fat Ass?"

Seriously Mcfarlen is the worst and meanest atheist out there! I can see him bullying a disabled kid wearing a Jesus shirt, because he’s such a butthole! My condolences to all you nice and kind,atheists out there because,Seth Mcfarjerk, is giving you a bad name! - MJfan119

25 Brian Gives Stewie Herpes
26 The "You Have AIDS" Sequence

You mean when they brought back Family Guy, from DVD sales. It actually had three seasons with the 2002 cancel.

You mean a crossed the line moment?

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

27 "Terri Schiavo: the Musical"
28 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.

29 Elmer Fudd Violently Kills Bugs Bunny In a Cutaway Gag

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

Stupid pop culture.

Animal abuse - Feliciafurrypaws4ever

30 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!

31 A raccoon chews on Stewie’s exposed brain

That is uncomfortable to watch. - AinezoChan

Gross - Feliciafurrypaws4ever

32 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

33 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.

34 Prom Night Dumpster Baby

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

This is so depressing.

Ok it was a true story, that doesn't mean it would be good for comedy? Crossing the line.

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

Ew, this is pedophilic. - AinezoChan

38 James Woods Returns and Steals Peter's Identity

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

39 Quagmire Accidentally Marries Charmese

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

40 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.

41 Brian cuts off his ear

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

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

Total waste of time.

43 Brian pukes when he realizes that he slept with a transgender woman
44 Chris masturbating to his own mother
45 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.

46 Quagmire's extreme sexuality

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

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

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