Since its debut in 1999, the Emmy-nominated animated series "Family Guy" has attracted an impressively loyal following of devoted fans and has sold more than 5 million combined DVD units, making it the fourth-largest-selling TV series ever. During the upcoming fifth season, "Family Guy" will hit its 100th milestone episode. As Peter would say, "Freakin' sweet!"
The series continues to follow the twisted trials and tribulations of Peter Griffin (Seth MacFarlane) and his not-quite-so-average family of middle-class New Englanders. Lois (Alex Borstein) is Peter's loving wife, who struggles to maintain a modicum of normalcy in their home life. Then, there are their kids: angst-ridden, 16-year-old Meg (Mila Kunis), who only really wants to get noticed; 13-year-old Chris (Seth Green), a sweet-natured slacker; and 1-year-old Stewie (MacFarlane), a diabolically clever baby who's already bent on world domination. Rounding out the Griffin household is Brian (MacFarlane), the family dog, who has a penchant for dry martinis and classic jazz.
The hilarity continues this season when Brian and Stewie hit the road in search of Rupert, Stewie's teddy bear, after he's accidentally sold at a garage sale. Meanwhile, Peter gets a prostate exam and then sues the doctor for rape, Chris joins a Goth rock band and Meg takes an abstinence pledge. And the laughter is infectious when Stewie and Brian join the Army and are sent to Iraq.
In addition to the regular cast, "Family Guy" has featured a diverse range of guest voice appearances, including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Lee Majors, Will Ferrell, Jimmy Kimmel, Drew Barrymore, Kiefer Sutherland, James Woods, Phyllis Diller, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and the legendary rock group KISS. The upcoming season features guest voice appearances by Hugh Hefner, Rob Lowe, Janeane Garofalo, Drew Barrymore, Carrie Fisher and Chevy Chase, among others.
