* HarsherInHindsight: His song "We Saw Your Boobs" [[CaptainObvious (about actresses whose boobs have been seen in film)]], performed at the Oscars, contained the line "And we haven't seen JenniferLawrence's boobs at all". Subsequently, a private photo account of hers was hacked causing her boobs to be seen by many, without her permission.



* XMeetsY: Seth [=MacFarlane=] is what happens when you mix Michael Buble's crooner-style singing with Creator/JohnKricfalusi's notoriety (or Music/FrankSinatra's crooner style with a cruder, nastier version of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera).

Added DiffLines:

* TheCastShowoff: ''Family Guy'' and ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' have often been used as platforms to show off Seth's amazing singing ability with musical numbers (some memorable musical moments from both shows include: ''Shipoopi'' from "Patriot Games", ''A Bag of Weed'' from "Episode 420", ''The Fellas at the Freakin' FCC'' from "PTV", the ''SchoolhouseRock'' bit on Oliver North and the Iran-Contra Scandal on the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episode "Stanny Slickers II: The Legend of Ollie's Gold", ''The N.A.A.F.P Anthem'' from a DeletedScene in "The Fat Guy Strangler", ''You've Got a Lot to See'' from "Brian Wallows and Peter Swallows", and any song from the Brian and Stewie "Road To..." episodes)

* AdoredByTheNetwork: Ever since ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' ended after 12 years on the air and ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp'' flopped so badly that it was canceled after four episodes (along with other animated shows that got the shaft after a short run, like ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory''[[note]]even though viewer and critic opinion of the show is that it sucks and should not have been made[[/note]] and an animated version of ''WesternAnimation/NapoleonDynamite'' [[WereStillRelevantDammit that came five years too late]]), the Sunday night "Animation Domination" line-up is mostly made up of Creator/SethMacFarlane's cartoons (now down on just ''Family Guy'' following ''The Cleveland Show'''s cancellation and ''American Dad'' moving to Creator/{{TBS}}). Currently, the only cartoons that aren't created by Creator/SethMacFarlane on the "Animation Domination" line-up are ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'', the reboot of ''WesternAnimation/GolanTheInsatiable'' (which most likely has been canceled), and ''Bordertown'', which is technically Mark Hentamenn's [[note]]Mark Hentamenn was a writer and producer of ''Family Guy'' in its pre-2002 cancellation days and was the man behind the short-lived MTV animated show ''3 South'', about a Harvard-bound college student who ends up in Barder College, the most corrupt, anti-intellectual college in the country after Harvard reaches its quota of white males[[/note]] creation though [=MacFarlane=] has a co-producer credit on the show (and now ''Bordertown'' has been canceled, leaving ''The Simpsons'' and ''BobsBurgers'' as the only non-Seth [=MacFarlane=] animated works on the network).
