Family Guy

Family Guy (1999)

15 corrected entries in season 1

Mind over Murder - S1-E4

Corrected entry: When Peter first has a piano in his bar, it's an upright model commonly seen in bars. The next night, it's a full sized Grand Piano. Given the width of the stairs, the size of the doorways, it seems unlikely to have been put down there without a considerable amount of effort.

Movie Nut

Correction: The whole area was transformed, a stage, extra lighting, etc. So, yes, a considerable amount of effort was done. Lois was excited to perform and conceivably hired a bunch of professionals to fix the area up (who are more than capable of bringing a piano down stairs and setting it up).

Mind over Murder - S1-E4

Corrected entry: When Stewie's chatting up 'Misti', the equation he writes on his napkin changes between shots.

xx:xx:xx

Blibbetyblip

Correction: The equation ( 1 1/2a 3=1/8 )stays the same throughout.

A Demon

Chitty Chitty Death Bang - S1-E3

Corrected entry: As Peter is saying "Today, you become the man of the house because when we get home, you're mother is going to kill me", Peter and Chris walk past the same four arcade games twice.

xx:xx:xx

Blibbetyblip

Correction: It's not unsual to have multiple instances of the same machine in an arcade.

A Demon

Brian: Portrait of a Dog - S1-E7

Corrected entry: When Brian is putting in his eyedrops, notice his buckle on his collar. In the next shot, we see Brian's reflection in the mirror, but the buckle is not flipped.

xx:xx:xx

Blibbetyblip

Correction: It does flip if you look carefully.

A Demon

The Son Also Draws - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When The Griffins leave to New York in their car the order in the back is Chris, Stewie then Meg, but in the next shot it's Meg, Stewie then Chris.

xx:xx:xx

Chaz1003

Correction: Some time has passed between those two shots since they are now in the countryside. Therefore we don't know if the family stopped for a toilet break or something where they would have changed place.

A Demon

Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the first shot of the flashback showing the family watching "Philadelphia," Peter's eyes are about twice as big as they normally are. They're back to normal in the next shot.

Movie_Freak 1

Correction: In this scene Peter's eyes are supposed to be larger then normal. The reason for this is he is explaining what happened last time he drank Irish Coffee. The large eyes are used to show that he is "buzzing" from the drink, as you will also notice that he comments that Tom Hanks is a funny guy and when the character says "I have AIDS" Peter bursts out laughing.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: Admittedly it would be difficult to understand him, but during the first three episodes of series one, Stewie properly enunciates without any teeth (he grows teeth in episode 4).

Correction: He's a baby that talks, that in itself is a physiological impossibility.

Phixius

Chitty Chitty Death Bang - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Lois has the flashback of her making Meg's cake, things continuously move or disappear in between shots.

xx:xx:xx

Chaz1003

Correction: First, this is far too vague. What "things" are moving or disappearing? Second, it's a narrative flashback - Lois's impression of what happened. The normal rules don't apply.

I Never Met the Dead Man - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When he is driving Meg home from her driver's test, Peter has a watch on. He complains that he will miss the beginning of the new TV show "Fast Animals, Slow Children." He stated earlier that the show started at 8:00. His watch says it is 10:00.

Correction: It is later shown that Quahog is dependent upon a cable and satellite network for its television. Many channels on these networks have 'shadow' channels that broadcast the same material one or two hours later, and some the next day. Hence, the 8.00 am and 10.00 am startup slot for this show.

Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the long shot of the mail lady walking to the Griffin house, she passes by the garage door. In the close up shot, she passes by it again.

Correction: She doesn't pass it twice, in the long view shot she makes it to the center of the little patch of grass then when you get up close, you can actually see a vertical line down the center of the patch and thats where she starts walking again.

Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the shot we see of the family from underneath the statue of David's legs, Peter's eyes are about twice as large as they should be.

Correction: In cartoons, when the character is in awe of something their eyes always tend to be drawn larger in a look of shock. That is not a mistake.

Mind over Murder - S1-E4

Corrected entry: When Peter builds the bar downstairs, and Lois sings for the first time the wall that lines the stairs is solid. When she has a stage and curtain backdrop, suddenly there is a door where Stewie is in the jolly jumper.

Correction: This door could have been added when the stage was built. There is no time frame given from the building of the bar to this point.

A Hero Sits Next Door - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When Everyone is at Joe's House he is working at the BBQ and he flips a burger over onto his hand (or a bun but I'm not sure) Then just before the camera shoots over to Peter the burger in Joe's hand disappears into thin air.

James Warrender

Correction: When Joe puts the burger in his hand he flips it up to his right. In normal speed you can see he flips it over his shoulder, but because of the very fast transition to Peter it makes it look that the burger has disappeared into thin air.

The Son Also Draws - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When the Fonz appears to Peter in a spiritual vision, Peter asks him if he has ever gotten any sexual diseases since he has been with so many women. The Fonz replies: "Herpes twice. And the clap." There is no cure for herpes so you can only get it once and keep it.

Paul Pepiton

Correction: (a) There is more than one type of herpes. (b) Fonz is an idiot, and could easily believe that when his herpes went into remission he was 'cured', only to believe himself reinfected when he had another outbreak.

I Never Met the Dead Man - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When the family are playing basketball, after each of them (except Peter) sink a hoop, the balls simply disappear.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The ground is off screen and before it is shown the balls could have easily bounced or rolled away.

Mistakes

They're in the Clam complaining that they can't drink when they make the revelation that Brian can because he's technically 56. But Quagmire should be able to drink, as in a much earlier episode, he's revealed to be over 60.
