Hi, my home wiki is Looney Tunes Wiki.

I do view wiki frequently as I do watch Family Guy. I do ask before inserting content if possible. I do not want to be locked out of editing. Cheers!

Content Information

Rating: These are the ratings present in which the episodes originally aired on Fox. No Family Guy episode was ever rated TV-MA. TV-14 (with or without D, L, S, V or any combination of them; some episodes TV-PG (with or without D, L, S, V or any combination of them); D (suggestive dialogue), L (suggestive language), S, (suggestive sexual themes), V (violence)
Content Labels: Because the show is rated TV-14 (equivalent to PG-13), parental guidance may be recommended for children under the age of 13. A few episodes are rated PG, however.
Violence: The violence is mostly moderate, though sometimes it is excessively detailed and gory. Most of it is just slapstick/cartoon violence, however, there is blood at times from aggressive fights or gunshots.
Language: Episodes during the original run did not have the words "shit" and "fuck" as Family Guy only aired at Fox during the time. At the point of the show's renewal with Season 4, there was an interest of having reruns on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network's night block geared towards teenagers and adults). The words "shit" and "fuck" are bleeped out when aired on Fox, due to it being a broadcast channel, but usually are uncensored on retail releases and/or Adult Swim. Usually, "bitch", "hell", "damn", or "ass" are featured in most episodes.
Sexual Themes and Nudity: There are plenty of sexual themes in the show. Some of them are addressed through innuendo, while others are recurring themes. A recurring sexual theme in the show is Glenn Quagmire's addiction to having sex with random girls. The characters sometimes can be naked, though usually the genitals cannot be seen, especially when aired on Fox.
Drugs and Alcohol: Alcohol is common and drugs are recurring. Peter and his friends drink beer at the bar and Brian does smoke tobacco sometimes. There are other drugs in the show such as cocaine, marijuana, and heroin, but those are not recurring themes in the show and only appear when the story needs them to.
Gambling: Gambling is sometimes featured in the show. Casinos and betting are common recurring themes.
Positive Messages and Role Modeling: The family usually learns a lesson in the end in the original run (first three seasons). Other than that, rarely do positive messages appear in the show. After all, Family Guy is a parody of American culture.
Crude Humor or Comic Mischief: This series was built on crude mischief. The series is focused on slapstick and comedy. It does get violent at times, showing blood sometimes.
