Sick, twisted, politcially incorrect and freakin' sweet, the animated series features the adventures of the Griffin family. Peter and Lois have three kids - the youngest is a brilliant, sadistic baby bent on killing his mother and destroying the world. Their talking dog Brian keeps baby Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting through his own life issues.
After being cancelled in 2002, an outstanding performance in DVD sales proved its cult value. As a result, the series was added back to the FOX Summer 2005 lineup. Family Guy returned to the small screen with new episodes on Sunday, May 1st, 2005.
