An animated series that has achieved cult status among fans is celebrating 20 years on television. Fox released a special video clip marking the anniversary of “Family Guy,” which you can see below.
An all-new episode of the show, “Bri, Robot,” airs Sunday, Feb. 10.
“Now in its 16th season, ‘Family Guy’ continues to entertain its die-hard fan base with razor-sharp humor, spot-on parodies, spectacular animation and orchestra-backed original music,” Fox says in the announcement. “Since its debut in 1999, the series has reached cult status among fans, and its breakout star, a talking baby, has become one of the greatest TV characters of all time.”
The announcement adds: “‘Family Guy’ has racked up numerous awards, including an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, only the second animated series in television history to be honored with such a distinction. Cast member Alex Borstein (voice of ‘Lois Griffin’) recently won the 2018 Emmy Award for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance. Series creator and lead voice actor Seth MacFarlane (voice of ‘Brian Griffin,’ ‘Peter Griffin’ and ‘Stewie Griffin’) also was nominated in the category. He won the 2017 and 2016 Emmy Award in the category, and was nominated from 2013 to 2015. Guest voices this season include Sir Patrick Stewart, Mandy Moore, Sarah Paulson, Bryan Cranston, Niecy Nash, Kyrie Irving, Johnny Weir, Tara Lipinski and Sam Elliot.”
