13 Jewish Gibes on ‘Family Guy’


Were you upset by the letter “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane sent to Emmy voters, calling them “bloated, overprivileged Brentwood Jews” and urging them to consider nominating his show for the Outstanding Comedy Series category?

Then you probably don’t watch that much “Family Guy,” because jokes on the expense of the chosen people happen there all the time. The Jews shouldn’t feel targeted though, “Family Guy” doesn’t discriminate and laughs at people of all nationalities, races, colors and genders. It’s one of those things that an animated show can do without getting too much heat.

So to put things in perspective, we chose 13 of our favorite “Family Guy” jokes on Jews. If you find them offensive, we sure hope you’re not an Emmy voter.

1. Jewish Eye Surgery

2. The ScareJew


3. Peter Griffin’s “I Need A Jew” Song


4. Jewish Fight Club


5. Disney Universe


6. G.I. Jew


7. Jewish Halloween Candy


8. Optimus Prime is Jewish?


9. Stewie at a Jewish gym class


10. Jewish Porn


11. Peter’s Hebrew name


12. Peter Griffin as Moses


And our personal favorite:

13. Stewie’s Shabbat prayer
