** Of course, there are other episodes that showcase different animation styles, such as Stewie dancing with Creator/GeneKelly in place of Jerry the Mouse, and the whole family crudely animated to spoof ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''' start on ''The Tracy Ullman Show''.

* ComedicLolicon: Peter in "Extra Large Medium" [[ItMakesSenseInContext says he needs to touch something that belongs to the buried guy with a bomb strapped to his chest so he can find him (he thinks he's psychic)]], and asks if the guy's 12-year-old daughter is just a kid, or the type of 12-year-old who drinks a lot of milk and had her breasts come in early.

* CelebratingTheHeroes:
** At the end of "Blind Ambition", Peter is given a medal for rescuing Horace from a fire in his bar, the scene itself being a spoof of a similar scene in ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope''.
** Brutally parodied in "Herpe the Love Sore"; when it turns out that the three bullies who have been making trouble for Peter, Quagmire and Joe throughout the episode are American soldiers about to leave for their third tour of duty, Mayor West declares a celebration in their honor.

* 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.

** Probably because he has "human" qualities, almost anything that happens to Brian Griffin counts as this. For instance, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJ02N0lAIos Stewie beating up Brian]] comes to mind.
** In "Episode 420", Peter tries to shave Quagmire's new cat with a hand razor, but he ends up killing it.
