tv FOX 45 News at 10 FOX November 11, 2012 10:00pm-10:35pm EST
come out of some of those episodes. i love in the first star wars episode when they're in the trash compactor and peter finds an old ratty couch. peter: whoa, whoa, whoa, stop, stop, stop, stop. what? what? what? what? no, no, no, twist it. i am. no, no, no, no. no, no, no, other way. you're twisting it the wrong way. which way? what do you want me to do? just look down, all right? just look at me, look what i'm doing. yeah. all right, see the way i'm twisting it? yeah. all right, turn it that way from your end. okay. okay, just... no, no, no, no... what? all right, hey, just put it down. put it down, just drop it. all right. we were able to use all that great john williams music. i mean, they really gave us the tools to do this right, and... and it was because they trusted us. they knew that we were fans and that we weren't gonna... we weren't gonna destroy their property. (train whistle blowing) (people talking indistinctly) i say, brian, look, three rows down. what? is that tom bosley?
what would tom bosley be doing on a train in switzerland? i'm almost certain. tom! did he look? i don't know. well, if i yell, yove to watch. tom bosley! no, it's not him. huh. the road shows have been a lot of fun. we started with "road to rhode island" in season one. and, uh, seth had this idea to do an episode based on those bob hope, bing crosby road shows. seth, as you probably know, loves bob hope. and, you know, is very familiar with those movies and the music from those movies and... so, i think that having "road to..." with brian and stewie, they're sort of our bing crosby and bob hope. up until that point stewie had kind of existed in his own world. he would talk to rupert and hatch diabolical schemes. and brian meanwhile was kind of peter's sidekick. and they were kind of separate. and this was the first time we kind of paired those two, and it just clicked.
okay, if everything worked properly this should be the exact time and place that mort was sent to. now, we've just got to figure out where we are. or when we are. oh, that's such a douche time traveler thing to say. from that point forward we started pairing stewie and brian together on stories, 'cause they were so good together. and it's a perfect example of how you can create a show and then your writing style... other people coming in, in this case, the writing staff, can find things in your characters that you didn't see initially. the brian-stewie relationship which now seems so obvious was not something that i thought of when i was creating the show. they're always sort of busting each other's chops and, uh, antagonistic towards each other, but they're also... i think they've evolved into their best friends. (stammering) can i just say before... can we just like take two... i love... you're so brave. i just love how brave you're being right now. this is like the closest i've ever felt to you. okay. oh, my god, i was king the same thing.
we are so us right now. do you know that? macfarlane: and the brian-stewie episode, more than anything, we did to explore whether or not two animated characters with just a single room can sustain a half hour purely on the strength of their characters. we thought that it might be interesting to try an episode where it was almost like watching a play. where it was one location, two people on stage, no cutaways, nothing, just dialogue for 22 minutes. it was very polarizing. people either loved it or they hated it. they thought it was revolutionary, or they thought it was just... you know, they couldn't get past the stewie diaper thing. (all gasp) (gasps) look! (screams) he's dead. oh, my god. nice. "and then there were fewer" was our first 16x9 episode,
when we went from this to this. and, um, we thought we'd do this big splashy visual episode. i love that episode because it's the first time we've really told a story that complex. so james woods murdered stephanie and then he murdered himself. criss-cross. the animators did an amazing job. the artists and the directors and everybody that worked on that. it looks so great to watch and the score is amazing. it's just a lush score all the way throughout. we use anywhere from a 50 to, in some cases, a 90-piece orchestra for every episode of the show. even if people don't know that what they're hearing is live music, is a live orchestra, on a subconscious level it classes up the show. i know that it happens to be one of seth's favorite episodes to this day. and i think he really liked approaching it like a movie. mr. peter.

and then the visuals, which dan povenmire, the director, spent a ton of time working on, really hit every point in the orchestration. and the thing that i've always loved aboutthe sh. when i talk to my son and his friends, you know, they don't know what shipoopi is. they might not know, you know, who gene kelly was, but they're loving the musical, you know, segments. and it's like, how did seth make 10 million teenage boys fans of musicals? ♪ it's a wonderful day for pie ♪ you can ask all the birds in the sky ♪ and they'll tell you real sweet, with a musical tweet ♪ it's a wonderful day for pie ♪ ouason seven premiere was an episode called "road to the multiverse." and there's this great musical number called it's a wonderful day for pie, which is, you know, as devoid of content as it sounds.
it's just about peter and lois singing about how much they love pie. but the animation in that sequence is amazing. visually, it was just fantastic to see our characters animated in a disney style. i just thought that was so well done. and it was a lot of fun. uh, and we sort of improvised some of the lyrics in the room. seth just came out with... (as peter) ♪ it's a wonderful day for pie and one of us goes... (aeveland) ♪ and it smells so much better than i ♪ it was cleveland as a skunk and it just came together. and, uh, that was a great piece. one of my favorites. ♪ i know you just can't wait to stare ♪ at all that luscious orange hair ♪ but, boy, before you touch a single curl ♪ you must impress that ultra-bloomin' ♪ all-consumin', poorly groomin' ♪ down's syndrome girl the down's syndrome girl song was fun for me because it was the first time i had written lyrics and a tune. which i basically went in and sang for walter murphy
who then arranged it and actualade it sound good. it's a lot of fun for us to... you know, to write a song lyric and have a great composer like walter murphy or ron jones set it to music. ♪ each bell would peal with a silvery zeal ♪ as the holiday feeling was filling us ♪ but now instead, all we're feeling is dread ♪ because christmastime is killing us ♪ when we did our christmas episode, i had originally envisioned something like rudolph that had, like, four or five, six musical numbers in it. we ended up, like, doing two or three. and i had written this lyric about how... i was making a commeon how cras has become and what it takes out of us all. and when the smoke cleared, it was a success. and we were nominated for an emmy. but also, a great unexpected thrill was we were nominated for a grammy. ♪ you have aids ♪ yes, you have aids ♪ not hiv but full blown aids ♪
macfarlane: i think the first song that the barbershop quartet did was the aids song. and that's a perfect example of another reason for using that orchestra and trying to be so musically legit. because it allows you to get away with content that you wouldn't rwise be able to get away with. yeah, talk about making a subject matter a little more palatable. people love the absurdity of these guys singing such an outrageous lyric, but what seth appreciates about it is how unbelievably talented these guys are and were in these pieces, musically. it provides a musical cushion that prevents you from being completely crass, if you're being that crass in the first place. ♪ you'll never have to wear a condom ♪ when you do it with your wife ♪ or anyone else you do it with ♪ we promise not to tell i also like the little things that we do here and there, like, stewie singing little folk songs,

that had broken out in this way and i always hoped we would have a prayer of maybe doing that as well. and i think we've done that. ah! smith: one of the great things now is that we're syndicated. so, we're on all the time. and old people like us now. i have an auntie philly who's 92. she loves family guy and she won't let any of her friends in the room when it's on use old people talk back to the television. she wants to hear it. old woman: what? old man: huh? what? huh? what? i forget. i said it before, but we're so thankful to our fans for bringing the show back from the dead, that i almost feel like we owe it to them to give 110% every day to every episode. i try to interact with the fans as much as i can. i don't know if you can see right now, but i'm actually eight months pregnant. and this is a fan's baby. you get crazy when you're pregnant. (laughing) (sobbing)
i feel like if you love me from afar then the least i can do is love you back. and if that means carrying your child, so be it. i love my fans. keep digging, you know? it feels like there's no more stories to tell and then we dig for a while and something pops up that, "oh, we haven't done that." (roaring) what's next is, i guess, episode 300. and i'll have even more gray hair and bigger circles under my eyes. i'm here for the early bird special. macfarlane: a family guy movie would be a logical extension. but, with an animated show, you can do pretty much anything. there's nothing you can't do. so what is the reason to make a movie? without giving anything away, i think we've hit on the answer to that. so when that family guy movie does come around, sufficeth to say, it will be something that is not do-able on tv. (farts) sorry. it's been building up for a while. i don't have a favorite character at this point.
i'm recoding voices so much. hiya, pardner. i'm a cattle rustler. i rustle cattle. oh, that's turning out good. i'm partial to brian. brian. brian steele. ooh, good heavens! he's the only character that i don't leave the booth with a sore throat. seems to me you should send less time working for the paper and more time working on that novel you've been working on... ah! a record- setting day for the conference opponent.beats a -- 11:27:21 "so perhaps the
