* CouchGag: Before the opening sequence was created, Seth originally suggested each episode open with a parody of different tv show's classic opening credits. While this concept was ultimately deemed too expensive, a few examples have made it to the final show, such as ''Series/FamilyTies'', ''Series/WillAndGrace'' (used as a cutaway gag instead), ''Series/ThatGirl'' (animation created for the opening was used instead as a joke in "Mr Griffin Goes to Washington"), ''Series/TwentyFour'', ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' ''Series/ModernFamily'', and ''Series/LawAndOrder''. ''Series/KingOfTheHill'' had one after a cameo in the ColdOpen featuring Hank Hill. ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'', ''Series/HappyDays'', and ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' have had their end credits parodied, right down to the font style. And, of course, the actual regular opening is a parody of [[Series/AllInTheFamily Archie and Edith]] at the piano.

** In "Episode 420", Peter tries to shave Quagmire's new cat with a hand razor, but he ends up killing it.
