• Family Guy Continues Pedophilia-Themed Punchlines

    by  • May 15, 2014 • Advertiser Accountability, Misrated, Sex, Violence • 18 Comments

    Last week we told you about Family Guy‘s bizarre fixation with child sex abuse. This week, the writers of Family Guy doubled-down on the offensive content with an art exhibit featuring pictures of hundreds of babies in suggestive situations, and Quagmire performing an inappropriate magic act at a children’s birthday party.

    Quagmire: (subtitled) Hey, can you guys knock it off? I’m banging a chick with epilepsy and you’re giving her a seizure. Actually, keep it up. Everything is seizing. It’s great.

    Peter: Women will always band together to stop an offensive art exhibit from coming to town, so I’ve arranged for all my photos of baby wieners to be put on display.

    Cleveland: Oh, Peter, I’m gonna have to call the police on this.

    Peter: What? Why? It’s to get our wives back together.

    Cleveland: Peter, these are hundreds of naked babies in suggestive situations. And their time stamped as far back as 1998, which is way before we had this idea.

    Peter: I need help!

    Quagmire performs at Susie’s birthday party:

    Quagmire: There’s the birthday girl. What’s that behind your ear? Oh, it’s a condom.

    Joe: Quagmire, please stop touching my baby with a condom.

    Quagmire: And for my next trick, I’m gonna split my beautiful assistant in half. And not the way you think. Won’t be needing this [holds up the condom and makes it disappear].

      I am absolutely appalled that you feel it’s necessary to put such perverse stuff of child porn and the sexual content of your shows. It for anything but families and it has no place on television. No one wants to watch that trash. My family and I have decided to disconnect our t.v. and we will be reading or playing games. Your show is so distasteful. I am also boycotting your sponsers.

        The show material that you are sponsoring is very disturbing. If you continue to sponsor this filth for our young people, I will tell my friends not to watch the show and not to purchase your products.

        Family Guy is funny, amazing, and has hilariously funny jokes that most kids won’t understand even if they do see the show. The only reason why Family Guy is funny is because they put so many sex jokes. And it’s your responsibility to make sure that they don’t have access to this stuff. Plus, disconnecting your TV won’t do anything to help. Many websites have content containing explicit shows, and teens are figuring out ways to get bootlegged DVDs everyday. Many shows are worse than Family Guy, and the show is only rated TV-14 DLSV. Many TV shows including South Park and Archer are worse than Family Guy and modern day programming with new shows contains entire shows centered on sex and violence. Family Guy #1!

      Do you guys even watch the stuff you sponsor? Family Guy is consistently pushing the envelope with sexual content, and now pedophiliacs enjoying putting on an display of baby penises. Do you really want to be associated with this filth? I am just touching on one issue with one show here!

      Please reconsider your sponsorship of Family Guy.

      Thank you,

      This program is highly inappropriate for anyone much less for children, this show should be taken off the air immediately and never re aired and all the advertisers should be ashamed to support such trash for the public to view.

      I wouldn’t waste my time watching such trash and wouldn’t allow much children to do so either. I will also boycott any organization that would advertise during this program. I would also encourage any and all of my family and friends to discontinue buying any products offered by the sponsors of this nasty trash TV.

      Stop with the pedophile humor. We don’t find it amusing. It is offensive.

      THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE AND WILL NOT BE TOLERATED BY US NOR GOD!

        You don’t speak for God, or for anyone that I’m aware. You’re entitled to free so each, but your not a scribe for God’s mind. Get a life, and a new caps lock key – because yours is set on cruise control

      Please do not support trash like this. This garbage needs to be removed from television.

      The Fox Corp. owns the Fox News Network that promotes “conservative” views which includes their much touted family values and the Fox Entertainment Network which includes this trash as well as many other trashy programs. Talk about hypocrisy! I guess family values are important to this corporation’s members and stockholders as long as it brings in the dough.

      I can’t believe you’d support pedophile-themed humor, how disgusting. I’m praying that you withdraw your advertising. Once you do, I’ll purchase your products again, and stop asking my friends and family to boycott your company.

      As an educator works with children who are victims of abuse and trafficking this is in my opinion a Federal Offense. Porn and especially Child porn — is not a punch line. It should not be treated as such and used for a laugh. Supporting this is something I would never do.

      Because of garbage like this, I have long since eliminated WJBK-TV, the Fox owned-and-operated station here in the Detroit area, from my remote control.

      A billboard on one of the major freeways in this area reads, “Turn off Fox 2. It’s bad for its workers.” It should have read: “It’s bad for its workers and hazardous to the public’s mental health.”

      (Annette Sanchez, FYI – Fox’s parent corporation is now 21st Century Fox, Inc. Company President Rupert Murdoch split up the company last year; NewsCorp now represents their printed media and 21st Century Fox is for all their entertainment properties.)

      Hahahaha oh my god you people are so clueless. It’s because of you people that its funny. The extreme taboo of the concept and their willingness to just take it to the limit is just hilarious. And by the way, they make TVs with parental controls now. I suppose you let your kids watch the playboy channel too then? If dont want your kids to watch something on TV but they do it anyway thats completely 100% your fault not the station’s fault. Control your kids and stop blaming others for your own failiures. Family Guy is a hilarious TV show because of Seth McFarlane’s willingness to take everything to the extremes where no one else will go. Just because you dont like a TV show you guys gotta boycott shit and act like a bunch of babies. Grow up.

      It’s not about kids watching the show, although you don’t make a cartoon and assume that no kids will ever see it. What it’s really about is the subtle manipulation of what we might term “social norms” and what now passes as “acceptable” within the consciousness of the adult mind. When you watch this show and others like it, you are being subtly yet systematically brainwashed and you don’t even know it.
