** In the start of ''Sex and the Biddy'', a family is bringing their grandfather in a building, implied to be the family's home...except that its the local retirement home, and the family dons the old man with a red bow and ding-dong-ditches. The best part: the population went from 68 to 69.

It still takes place in the same universe as ''Family Guy'' and the characters have even crossed paths in his show on occasion. But like ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', the series gradually stepped out of the shadow of its predecessors to find its own brand of humor, developing the title character as far more sympathetic than the other leads and using a more subtle comic style throughout. It has fewer cutaways, but they are still there, though, like ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' (and the GoldenAge ''Simpsons''), this show still has [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment bizarre asides from the plot]] and a lot of humor that [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] and mocks [[BitingTheHandHumor the FOX Network]] and America at large.
