Family Guy Facts – Test Your Knowledge of the Hit Show on Fox

The slapstick back and forth shock value humor that has essentially coined Fox’s Family Guy and other shows as “shock-toons” – as opposed to just cartoons – is what has made this show a loveable hit amongst millions of viewers during the more than decade the show has been on the air. Keep in mind that Fox originally canceled the show, before realizing how big of a mistake that they made and buying it back up from creator Seth MacFarlane.

Now well into the 9th season on Fox, with the season about to wrap up here come the end of April, it’s safe to say that there is some fun trivia that can be enjoyed from the many different episodes of the show that have aired prior.
