It's topical. It's edgy. FOX's animated series "Family Guy" takes political correctness, wraps it in a paper bag and leaves it flaming on Mary Whitehouse's doorstep before ringing the doorbell and running away. Best of all, the series is twelve different kinds of funny. It's comedy for all tastes. If you don't find the show funny, there's probably something wrong with you. Or maybe you're just one of the people this clever little cartoon takes a pot shot at.

The series follows the adventures of lovable oaf Peter Griffin (Seth MacFarlane) and his hilariously odd family of middle-class New Englanders. Lois (Alex Borstein) is Peter's loving wife, a former Miss Teen Rhode Island who rules the roost but is one step away from a nervous breakdown. Then there are their kids: frumpy, 16-year-old Meg (Mila Kunis), the family's punching bag; 13-year-old Chris (Seth Green), a kid who can't make sense of the opposite sex, much less the evil monkey hiding in his closet; and 1-year-old Stewie (MacFarlane), a diabolically clever baby whose heterosexuality is hanging by a thread. Rounding out the Griffin household is Brian (MacFarlane), the family dog, a member of Mensa with a penchant for dry martinis and dumb blondes.

In addition to the regular cast, the series has featured guest voice appearances by a wide range of notables, including Drew Barrymore, Robert Downey Jr., Rob Lowe, Hugh Hefner, Will Ferrell, Jimmy Kimmel, Kiefer Sutherland, James Woods, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and the legendary rock group KISS.

"Family Guy" is a 20th Century Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane is creator/executive producer, David A. Goodman is executive producer/show-runner and Chris Sheridan, Danny Smith, Mark Hentemann, and Steve Callaghan are executive producers.
