Family Guy loves to joke about movies, pop culture and television. And here’s an upcoming look at the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation doing a guest appearance .
In the episode, Stewie creates an invention beaming the entire Trek cast to his bedroom so they can spend a day together in Quahog (large video player, takes a moment to load).
But not all the parodies go down so well. On Family Guy Volume 6 DVD Seth McFarlane says a gag at the expense of The Simpsons did not have the FOX network laughing.
“You cannot do this gag,” he was told.
“We want to end the feud.”
McFarlane says there was no rival animation feud and that Simpsons had had plenty of gags at Family Guy’s expense.
“This seems a little personal,” he was told.
The offending gag was later ‘paintboxed’ out.
