[email protected] 2021 continued this afternoon with a panel discussion of FOX’s hit animated series Family Guy, which is celebrating its 20th season this year. Participating in the presentation were showrunners Rich Appel and Alec Sulkin, cast members Arif Zahir (new voice of Cleveland Brown), Alex Borstein (Lois Griffin), Mila Kunis (Meg Griffin), Seth Green (Chris Griffin), and Seth MacFarlane (Peter Griffin), along with comedian Ryan Budds.
In the bullet-point list below, I’ve enumerated the most interesting tidbits and factoids to come out of the Family Guy panel during [email protected] 2021.
Watch Family Guy | [email protected] 2021:
- Ryan Budds started throwing Family Guy trivia questions at the panelists pretty much right away.
- This entire panel is basically a trivia contest between the cast members and the producers.
- Seth MacFarlane says Peter’s fight with the giant chicken was originally created as a space-filler for episodes that came in shorter than they needed to be.
- Mila Kunis is not very good at answering the trivia questions correctly.
- Seth Green touched the wrong button when answering a question about his own character Chris Griffin’s middle name.
- Seth MacFarlane won the first round, with Mila Kunis unsurprisingly coming in dead last.
- Round 1 was general Family Guy knowledge, while the second round was about guest stars on the show.
- MacFarlane says he’s winning because he’s focused on the game while everyone else is trying to make jokes.
- Upcoming guest stars include Sam Elliott, Zachary Levi, Patton Oswalt, Mike Judge, and Kenny Loggins.
- Round 3 is fill-in-the-blanks quotes from Family Guy.
- And Seth MacFarlane won all three rounds, meaning he won the entire game, getting 28 out of 30 questions correct.
- “I thought I was going to fail miserably at this. I am just delighted.” – Seth MacFarlane
- Six minutes of highlights from the new season can be viewed on the Family Guy social media feeds.
Season 20 of Family Guy begins this fall on FOX.
