After more than two decades on air, Seth MacFarlane’s adult animated series “Family Guy” continues to — as its characters sing in its theme song — make us laugh and cry.
Lucky there was a man to give the world the iconic yet majorly dysfunctional animated family that is Peter, Lois, Chris, Meg, Stewie and Brian Griffin. MacFarlane created the show, which made its debut on Jan. 31, 1999, after his days working as an animator and writer at Hanna-Barbara, known as Cartoon Network today.
And although it’s never taken home the most elite Emmy award in animation, Outstanding Comedy Series or Outstanding Animated Program, the show remains a fan-favorite 21 seasons in.
