A Christmas Miracle - FAMILY GUY's Brian is Resurrected!
Even since Brian, the beloved Griffin dog on FOX's Family Guy met his demise in a car accident on the November 24th episode, fans of the show have been in mourning. However, on last night's episode of the long running animated series, creator Seth MacFarlane shared a true holiday gift - Brian was resurrected!
In the episode, a tearful Stewie told a mall Santa that he desparately missed his friend and wished that he could return. With the help of a time machine, he was able to go back in time and stop the untimely car accident from happening, just in time to save his four-legged friend.
Tweeted MacFarlane over the weekend, "I mean, you didn't really think we'd kill off Brian, did you? Jesus, we'd have to be (effing) high. "He added, "Oh and hey... thanks for caring so much about the canine Griffin. He is overcome with gratitude."
Summing up the storyline, he joked: "And thus endeth our warm, fuzzy holiday lesson: Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash."
About FAMILY GUY:
Family Guy continues to entertain fans with its shocking humor, memorable cutaway gags, dazzling musical numbers and epic episodes. Since its debut, the series has reached cult status among fans, and its breakout star, a talking baby, has become one of the greatest TV characters of all time. Family Guy has racked up numerous awards, including an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, only the second animated series in television history to be honored with such a distinction. The series' lead voice actors, creator Seth MacFarlane (voice of "Brian Griffin," "Peter Griffin" and "Stewie Griffin") and Alex Borstein (voice of "Lois Griffin" and "Tricia Tawanaka"), recently received 2013 Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance.
The show follows the adventures of an endearingly ignorant dad, PETER GRIFFIN (Seth MacFarlane), and his hilariously odd family of middle-class New Englanders in Quahog, RI. LOIS (Alex Borstein) is Peter's wife, a stay-at-home mom with no patience for her family's antics. Then there are their kids: 18-year-old MEG (Mila Kunis) is an outcast at school and the Griffin family punching bag; 13-year-old CHRIS (Seth Green) is a socially awkward teen who doesn't have a clue about the opposite sex; and one-year-old STEWIE (MacFarlane) is a diabolically clever baby whose burgeoning sexuality is very much a work in progress. Rounding out the Griffin household is BRIAN (MacFarlane), the family dog and a ladies man who is one step away from AA.
In the upcoming season, the Griffins embark on a hilarious trip to Italy, Peter discovers that he has a vestigial twin growing out of his neck and a love triangle emerges between Stewie, Brian and Stewie's teddy bear, Rupert. Also, Peter and deviant neighbor QUAGMIRE (MacFarlane) become a singing/songwriting team, in the vein of Simon & Garfunkel.
Guest voices scheduled for the 11th season include Conan O'Brien, Jeff Daniels, Michelle Dockery, Tony Sirico, Yvette Nicole Brown and Gary Cole.
