Family Guy, an animated sitcom produced by Seth MacFarlane, has humored millions of viewers since it first premiered in 1999. It captivates viewers through its satirical content, which not only tackles issues that are prominent and relevant to its audience, but also entertains them. Despite the initial cancellations of the show, Family Guy has successfully been revived and maintains steady viewership. Matter of fact, it has been nominated for numerous Emmys, the most notable being Outstanding Comedy Series. It also won a multitude of awards for Animated Show (FIX THIS). The show continues to successfully address topics in a humorous and insightful way and is currently airing its fourteenth season. One topic that Family Guy frequently satirizes is racism/white supremacy. Family Guy has an interesting take on satirizing this theme, which in turn differentiates the show from other similar animated sitcoms. It sheds light on a new perspective and highlights key points that are typically overlooked. In addition, the show does not hesitate to challenge stereotypes and start controversies. The show is committed to providing fresh and unique insights of an issue (to an issue??). In the episodes, “Baby Got Black” and “Cool Hand Peter,” for example, Family Guy challenges the established notions of racism and white supremacy. It does this by shifting the focus from what society has (developed us to believ? to what we should believe)….SOMETHING.
