Recap / Family Guy S 1 E 3 Chitty Chitty Death Bang

Airdate: April 18, 1999

Thanks to Peter being Peter, plans to have Stewie's first birthday party at Cheesy Charlie's are canceled, which upsets Lois—but not as much as having Meg ditch the party to be with her new friends, who are all part of a suicide cult.

"Chitty Chitty Death Bang" contains example of (YMMV goes here):

  • Bowdlerization: On Channel 4 in the UK, the flashback where Peter guns down Hanson, thinking they are the Children of the Corn, was shortened so that he fires the gun three times instead of six.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Stewie apparently doesn't like sprinkles—when Chris offered to make him a bowl of ice cream, Stewie tells Chris to not put any sprinkles on his ice cream, and threatened to kill Chris for every sprinkle he put on it.note 
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The flashback to Meg's first birthday, where Peter gleefully informs Lois of all of his daughter's firsts (first words, first steps, first drum solo) which she's missing because of all the kitchen work, as well as the fact that they like her enough to throw her a party, is a far cry from the punching bag Meg would eventually become.
  • Suck E. Cheese's: Cheesie Charlie's—exaggerated in Peter's fantasy, where he compares it to a dungeon led by the Devil but averted in reality, as it looks fairly normal for an arcade/pizza restaurant where families take their kids for their birthdays (though Chris does mistake a condom machine in the men's room for one of the games).
