My Top 10 Most Favorite Family Guy Episodes

Updated on January 23, 2013

Family Guy

Family Guy is one of my favorite shows on TV so I decided to compile a list of its top 10 best Family Guy episodes. While some people don't like the show because almost all the jokes are unrelated to the plot, that's exactly why I like it. While I don't get many of the pop culture references, because I don't follow movies and celebs, I love the flashbacks and all the other jokes, especially since they are very light and easy to understand which makes this show a great way to relax. They also have a great variety of characters which makes Family Guy even more fun.

Top 10 Family Guy Episodes

It was difficult to choose my favorite 10 episodes because almost all Family Guy episodes are really funny in their own way. In the end I chose the following episodes because they were a little more memorable than the others. Also, this list only includes regular episodes and doesn't include full length movies such as "Something, Something, Something Dark Side", you can check these out on the Blue Harvest page. I included the videos for as many episodes as I could. To play the videos click on the photo, it'll open in a new window. If you to see even more funny Family Guy episodes, check out my Best Family Guy Episodes blog where I review the best episodes from each season of Family Guy

Chitty Chitty Death Bang

Stewie's 1st Birthday

(Family Guy season 1 episode 3) It's Stewie's 1st birthday and Lois wants this to be perfect so she reserves a party at Chucky Cheeses. However, Peter messes everything up and lies to Lois that he can do a better party than Chucky Cheeses because he can get a petting zoo and other cool stuff, which is just typical Peter. Meanwhile, Meg eds up joining a cult thanks to her new "cool" friend and Stewie tries to assemble an army to fight aginst the "men in white". The end was also pretty funny when Stewie was blowing out the candle on the cake, he wanted to first wish for world domination but then decided to wish for a funky 70's disco-style party.

I Dream of Jesus

Bird, Bird, Bird is the Word

(Family Guy season 7 episode 2) Peter gets the song "Surfin' Bird" Stuck in his head, and keeps singing it all the time. The family gets really annoyed and Brian and Stewie destroy the record "Office Space" style (which I found pretty hilarious). Peter goes off to look for the record and meets Jesus. He becomes close friends, but when the world finds out that Jesus is back, Jesus eventually can't handle his celb status and decides to comeback in another 1000 years.

Stewie Kills Lois/Lois Kills Stewie

Stewie Tries to Take Over the World

(Family Guy season 6 episode 4) Peter and Lois go on a cruise but they don't take Stewie who gets upset and wants to kill Lois, as usual. Brian laughs at him because Stewie never goes through with his plan, so Stewie gets a boat, catches up to the ship and kills Lois. After some time Peter is found guilty, but during the court session Louis returns and tells about her journey. Stewie takes over the world and makes up some ridiculous laws i.e. everyone has to drink milk only from Hilary Swank's breasts. Lois finally decides to kill Stewie, they have an epic fight eventually ending with Peter killing Stewe....Or did he?! ;-)

8 Simple Rules For Buying My Teenage Daughter

Peter Sells Meg to the Goldmans

(Family Guy season 4 episode 8) The episode begins with a funny exchange where Meg is babysitting Stewie who after a short awkward silence asks her "have we met?" Then Neil Goldman, who likes Meg, walks in the house trying to get her to go out with him and we get a flash back (typical Family Guy) in which Meg goes on the "Everybody Loves Raymond" sitcom and says that she hates Neil. On with the story, Peter goes to the pharmacy (owned by Neil's father) but doesn't have the money to buy what he needs so he opens a tab. Since he thinks that he can now buy everything for free, he goes on a ridiculous shopping spree in the next few days and ends up owing a lot of money. To pay of the debt, Peter sells Meg, who now has to work as a slave to Neil. Meanwhile, Stewie gets a new babysitter whom he falls in love with. But it turns out that she has a boyfriend, so he locks the boyfriend in the trunk of Brian's car (and forgets about it). He then frames his babysitter by making it look like she took drugs and had a party at the Griffin's house (which he regrets because it turns out that she made him a mixtape).

Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater

Lord Griffin of the Cherrywood Manor

(Family Guy season 2 episode 1) Louis' aunt dies and leaves her the Charrywood Mansion. Peter sells their old house so that the family can live at the manison. After a short time, Peter gets upset at the fact that Lois' family keeps making fun of him because of his bad manners, so Brian teaches him how to be a gentlemen. Peter starts thinking that he is a billionere and creates the Lord Griffin persona, who buys a vase for $100,000,000. Since he doesn't have that money, he has to figure out a way to make the Charrywood Mansion worth this much. He finds out a secret that makes the house very valuable allowing him to pay off the vase and buy back their old house.

Spies Reminiscent of Us

Adam West is a Secret KGB Spy

(Family Guy season 8 episode 3) Peter has to go to the bathroom but all of them are busy, so he starts going to the bathroom at the now deserted Clevlend's house. After a few days( a funny montage of him going to Clevlend's bathroom everyday), the house is sold to Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd. Brian and Stewie go to the house and find out that Chevy and Dan are spies and are looking for a KGB "sleeper agent" who is activated by a phrase "Gosh, that Italian family at the next table sure is quiet." It turns out that Adam West (mayor of Quahog) is the spy. Brian, Stewie, and the actors follow him to Russia (where all citizens are bears on unicylces). Vladimir Putin wants to help because it'll be ambarrasing for the world to find out about sleeper agents. West launches a nuclear missile at the U.S, but Dan is able to save the day by aiming it high above the Earth's atmosphere.

"No Bones About It"; "Super Griffins"; "Li'l Griffins"

(Family Guy season 2 episode 21) This epsode consists of 3 short episdoes. In the first one, "No Bones About It," Peter gets three wishes his 2nd wish was to have his own theme music. While on the bus, a guy gets annoyed with the music and wants to break every bone in Peters body, so Peter wishes he has no bones. After some hardships, he wants the family to go on with their lives, so he flushes himself down the drain. But he eventually gets surgery in which the family donate some of their bones to him. In "Super Griffins" the family gets super powers and they start using them for peronal gain. Adam West tries to get superpowers to stop them, but gets cancer instead. The family realize that they were wrong and help him get well. In "Li'l Griffins", miniature versions of Quagmire and Peter fall in love with miniature Lois. To impress her they and their friends spend the night at the spooky house, but Mort Goldman makes a holographic ghost and scares everyone. Note that this little episode doesn't fit into the sotryline of the series because Peter met Lois at a country club and met Quagmire in the Navy.


Peter vs FCC

(Family Guy season 4 episode 14) This episdoe probably has the funniest intro (every episode has an intro before the theme song), in which Osama bin Laden tries to make one of his tapes but can't because everyone keeps acting funny but then Stewie comes out of nowhere and kills everyone and then drives back home in his trike (running over Homer Simpson in the process). In the actual episode, the FCC starts censoring every little thing on TV (and later real life) because of a wardrobe malfunction at the Oscars. Peter can't stand this so he starts his own TV station. Soon the FCC closes him, so he goes to Washington where he convinces everyone to stop the censoring because all of our great memorials can be seen in a very dirty fashion as well. Also in the middle of the episode Peter does a pretty funny musical number about the FCC.

E Peterbus Unum

The Land of Petoria

(Family Guy season 2 episode 18) Peter wants to build a pool in his back yard but, since there's a power line going through the property, he needs mayor's permission. While at the mayor's office, it turns out that Peter's house is not a part of the U.S, so he makes it his own country, Petoria. Peter wants to earn respect of other countries, so he takes Joe's pool which is considered as an act of war by the U.S. After enduring hardships of being surrounded by the U.S army for a few days, Peter finally decides to put up the white flag, and ends up with no leverage during the negotiations.

Da Boom

Aftermath of Y2K

(Family Guy season 2 episode 3) Lois wants to go to a New Years Party but Peter locks the family up in the basement because of Y2K. He ends up being right, nuclear warheads go up (all of them together look like the phrase "Happy New Year" on the radar) and explode the U.S. After dust settles the Griffins go on a journey to find food and shelter. Peter remembers that only Twinkies can survive a nuclear holocaust so they travel to the closes Twinkie factory. On the way there Stewie turns into an octupus. They start their own town near the Twinkle factory. But it goes horribly wrong mainly because Peter makes everyone pick jobs out of a hat. Afteter countless other mistakes the family is ran out of town. But as soon as they did that, the eggs that Stewie laid hatched and killed everyone.

This episode is also famous for featuring the first of many hilarious over the top Peter vs Giant Chicken fights.

Stewie Tries to Lois' Attention - Mother, mommy, momma, mom, ....

What's really cool about this, is that Stewie still acts like a real baby and needs the attention of his mom despite being an evil genius with plans for world domination. The fact that this goes on for a pretty long time makes it even more bizarre and hilarious.

Brian and Stewie Beat Up a Record - Office Space Style Beat Down of the Surfin' Bird

It's just a really strange way of ridding the family of a record that Peter has been singing every day.

Stewie Steals a Car - Get outta the __ car!

This happened at the end of the episode in which Brian and Stewie go to Aspen to get Rupert (Stewie's teddy bear). What makes it funny is how ridiculous this is. When you think of babies you don't think of someone that yells out profanities and steals a car, yet in this segment Stewie does both (which is typical Family Guy) .

Stewie beats up Brian - Where's my money?!

Brian borrows money from Stewie and doesn't give it back. You've got to feel bad for Brian though, Stewie really messes him up.

Peter and the Giant Chicken have been mortal enemies ever since the Giant Chicken gave Peter a coupon that didn't work. Since then, they've had numerous epic fights which took them across various terrains and left behind a trail of destruction.

      My favorite episode is E Peterbus Unum. Its number 1 on my DVR recording list. I am a total addict to Family guy, or my sling adapter, or both. I think I have seen every episode three times at least, but I still watch constantly. Working at DISH network at night I thought I could break the habit, but I load it on my and watch live airing on my phone through my sling adapter. And I still laugh like it was the first time I had seen it.
