Family Guy is a very successful show aired on FOX. Since some jokes are simply too rude to air them on national television, the producers have to censor/cut scenes from time to time. However, they sometimes also cut some jokes away in order to reach the appropiate length for a TV-episode. Therefore, not all the changes that were made are a result of censorship. Nevertheless there still are enough hilarious, outrageous jokes in the show - fans will be in for a good time, weven when watching the TV Version on FOX. (I'm speaking from experience.)

BTW, it airs every sunday evening on FOX. That's really nice because you can also watch the new American Dad episode as well as the new episode of The Cleveland Show. So you've got a terrific triple feature. If you're watching FOX anyway, you can also watch the latest Simpsons episode. After all, what's better than spent your whole evening laughing your ass of while watching the latest episodes of the series by Seth MacFarlane plus some new adventures of Homer & Co?

The 17th episode of the 5th season - "It Takes a Village Idiot, and I Married One" - was highly altered for the DVD Version. Especially the huge amount of scenes with auditory censorship strike the eye; several sentences were replaced by more harmless material for the TV Version. The first scene with auditory alterations is not per se a case of censorship; the reason for the (nevertheless more harmless) new sentence is rather the general revision of the whole episode. Again, it's interesting to see that the word "Jesus!" (as an expression for being on the edge) had to be replaced (just as "god damn!" in other episodes).
The "real" cuts range between censorship and adaption to the correct length for an episode (still, the former prevails).

When the Griffins drive to Quagmire, there's a little more dialuge and an additional little gag.

Meg: "Oh, Dad, I think this is Mr. Quagmire's driveway. Didn't he say it was between two big oak trees."
Lois: "Well, there's a lot of trees around here. How do we know we're in the right spot?"
You see the way to Quagmire's house from above - it looks like a penis. Brian comments this: "Uh, I think it's a safe bet this is the place."

Auditory Censorship

Lois' sentence was altered when she enters the room (whysoever).

TV: "Wow, Quagmire's got a nice place."
DVD: "Wow, this looks comfortable."

No difference in time.


Quagmire: "Huh. And here I am, cream in my face, hair a mess, and in mid-coitus. I must be a sight."

5.6 sec


After Donny Most revived from the mist, the DVD Version offers a short additional scene where Peter talks about survival tactics in the wilderniss.

He handles a few sausages and says: "Now, watch carefully, you guys. Out here in the woods, you got to hang your food up high, so the Pope won't get it."
Just after he tied the sausages to a tree, the Pope comes and jumps up; "You gotta da hot links? Come on, the Pope-a want-a da hot links."

11.1 sec


When they sit around the campfire there's another shot from above. Then, the DVD Version continues with an additional scene.

Peter: "All right, who's ready for a campfire song, huh?"
Meg: "Oh, come on, Dad, that's lame."
Lois: "It's not lame, Meg. Look, those people over there are having a good time."
You see the characters Steve and Helen (from the episode "Brian Goes Back To College") in front of another tent. With their computer voices they "sing"; "She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes - when she comes - She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes - when she comes."

19.9 sec

Auditory Censorship

During Peter's sodomy song about the 2 cowboys, he in the TV Version uses the term "gay sex", while in the DVD Version he says "butt sex".

No difference in time.

Auditory Censorship

When Brian gets worked up over Stewie making fun of his Ziggy tattoo on his butt, his exclamation was altered.

TV: "Ah, geez."
DVD: "Jesus."

No difference in time.

Alternative Footage / Auditory Censorship

During the flashback, Adam West says something different to the woman (for the TV Version they mitigated her statement [here, the process of watching is the important one]).

TV: "Want to take a gander at some Adam West penis?"
DVD: "Want some Adam West penis?"

When Tom Tucker talks about the alternative to hire a woman as mayor, one of his sentences was altered (in the TV Version, he expresses his thoughts a little more carefully).

TV: "...or will she just menstruate all over the city?"
DVD: "...or will she just bleed all over the city?"

At the end of Quagmire's explanation about how he helped promoting Lois (he had sex with every woman in town), he adds alternative last words.

TV: "You know how many sperms I got left? One. He is alone in there and he's scared, allright? He's scared!"
DVD: "My God. If I tried to masturbate right now, you know what would come out? A little flag with the word 'BANG' on it."

Two dolphins arise in the dirty lake and have a short discussion.

"What's going on?"
"Everybody's dead."
"Oh, see now. You know who they gonna blame for this on."
"Mmm-hmm. The black dolphins."
"See, the honky dolphin always trying to keep the black dolphin down."
"I mean, can't we all just swim along?"
"You know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna call Fishy Jackson. And you know what? I'm gonna call Catfish Sharpton. Get them motherfuckers on the line!"

19.3 sec


Another broadcast of this episode (aired on Fox) which was also available for this report offered two additional alterations.
For both of these alterations they included different animation and they probably just forgot to include these sequences in the bonus material of the DVD.
The first of these alterations is especially interesting since it probably was made due to censorship.


When Mozart-Stewie mimes Peter at the piano (at the end of his performance he shows his ass and farts) you see alternative footage.
On the DVD you see his bare ass, while in the TV Version he wears underwear.

No difference in time.

A very strange alteration; the man on the right says the same thing, yet still they included a different animation.
The man who speaks as well as the person next to him (in the TV Version it's a woman, on the DVD it's a man) both look completely different.

No difference in time.
