Trivia / Family Guy Presents: Laugh It Up, Fuzzball

  • Creator Breakdown: It's A Trap! opens with the word crawl complaining they are completely sick of doing the Star Wars spoofs, but are forced to because the executives saw dollar signs. And as the DVD Commentary makes clear, it's not even a joke.
  • Deleted Scene: A number not aired in the first episode were on the DVD release.
  • DVD Commentary
  • Edited for Syndication: Due to their hour long nature, the specials are often split into two parts with many scenes cut to make a 30 minute broadcast.

  • Executive Meddling: In the DVD commentary, MacFarlane confirmed that the opening crawl to It's A Trap! was 100% accurate; FOX forced him to do it, holding Ted hostage to get Seth to agree.
  • Jossed: Fans swore some shots were made by Rotoscoping shots from the actual movies, but the layout artists insisted that the sets needed to be scaled up to make room for the bigger characters. The scenes were merely recreated really well.
  • Money, Dear Boy: The word-crawl opening of the third episode is all about how the creators only created the last episode because the first two made enough money that that they were forced into doing so.
  • The Other Marty: Paul Reubens was to voice Pee-wee Herman in "It's a Trap!". According to Seth MacFarlane, the results weren't what the staff wanted so MacFarlane dubbed over the lines with his voice.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Some jokes were mentioned, but not put in the final episodes, including a Back to the Future reference when Leia kissed Luke, Han mentioning he had OCD, a Monty Python and the Holy Grail scene with the wampa.
    • Death was originally meant to be Emperor Palpatine, but the role was given to Carter instead because his voice fit the character more.
