Even more baffling, nearly all of the show's regular black characters were eventually played by caucasian actors.

* MoneyDearBoy: Arguably THE reason why FOX has refused to end production on the show, despite many fans and even creator Seth [=MacFarlane=] wanting them to do so due to the SeasonalRot, is due to late-night reruns and DVD sales having the potential for the show to be FOX's most valuable animated franchise since ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
