* There was a cutaway gag poking fun of John Goodman's weight and eating habits to the point that the rest of his family are all skin and bones. As of 2015, [[http://nypost.com/2015/11/10/the-secrets-behind-john-goodmans-100-pound-weight-loss/ he lost a lot of weight]].

** In "Barely Legal", Meg's friends tell Brian he looks like Creator/BenAffleck. Then jun the "SuperFriends" parody opening "Family Goy", Brian is Batman. Then, in 2013, guess who was announced to play who in the ''Film/ManOfSteel'' sequel?

** Stewie pleading to FOX to at least let them stay on long enough to be syndicated in "The Road to Rhode Island", which, thanks to its 2005 revival and being rerun on TBS and CartoonNetwork's AdultSwim block, it has exceeded its goal.

* ItsPopularNowItSucks: Fans of the show from when it was a short-lived cult show occasionally aired on late nights felt "betrayed" when it's final [[{{Uncanceled}} uncancelation]] turned it into the pop-culture behemoth that it is now. SethMacFarlane, by his own admittance, never understood why.

** Stewie pleading to FOX to at least let them stay on long enough to be syndicated in "The Road to Rhode Island". ** In "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein," Peter expresses how badly he needs help from a Jewish person. Later in season 8, in the episode "Family Goy," it's revealed that [[spoiler:Lois is Jewish on her mom's side.]] ** The season seven episode "We Love You Lauren Conrad" has Stewie refer to Bruce Jenner as a beautiful ''woman''.

Stewie knew her true gender identity six years before anyone else did and even funnier when Brian tries to correct him saying "Bruce Jenner is a man." ** One of the cutaways makes fun of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, with the narrator (voiced by the late, great trailer announcer Creator/DonLaFontaine) unsure just what ethnicity he was (in real life, Wrestling/DwayneJohnson is black and Canadian on his father's side and Samoan and Hawaiian on his mom's side). After that episode aired, he went on to voice a white guy in ''WesternAnimation/{{Planet 51}}'' and he sounded pretty ''white'' to the point where you likely wouldn't have guessed it was him.

The poo-eating thing is a dog joke, because that is a thing dogs do, as anybody who has ever had a dog and an infant in the same house can attest. The sexual element is a little weird, but that's a bit of an overreaction to that joke, which is actually dirtier in the TV version by a good bit.
* BetterOnDVD: The DVD version (at least for the episodes made after the show was saved from being cancelled) is ''not'' like the version you see on TV (not even the Creator/AdultSwim version). Words like "fuck" and "shit" aren't bleeped, there are alternate scenes and lines (some of which are better than what the TV version has, but most are a little too disgusting or in bad taste. Case in point: In one episode, Brian's line to Lois in the TV version was, "Can I WHAM! my Oingo Boingo into your Velvet Underground?" which is funny because it's a delicious pun of sex and 1980s bands. The DVD version replaces the line with the coprophagic and downright sickening, "[[CensorDecoy I would eat your poo]]."), and you get commentary and deleted scene reels on what was originally supposed to be in the episode.

Ret Gone is when a person is, in-universe, erased from existence. Retconning is when the writers go back on something they did before.

* EthnicScrappy: An LGBT example, Brian's cousin Jasper for being a walking offensive stereotype.

** Jasper is '''loathed''' by LGBT fans (which would explain why he has only appeared in a cameo since "You May Now Kiss....Uh..The Guy Who Receives") and even ones who aren't.
