The 10 Greatest ‘Family Guy’ Cutaway Gags

“Family Guy” fans are sure to be flocking to movie theatres all over the country this weekend thanks to the release of “Ted,” the directorial debut of Seth MacFarlane, the show’s creator and primary voice actor. To celebrate its release, ThisBlogRules is taking a look back at the greatest cutaway gags from “Family Guy”’s illustrious 13-year history, and there’s certainly no shortage of clips to pick from: each 22-minute episode contains on average seven or eight cutaway gags, the vast majority of which have absolutely nothing to do with any given episode’s plot.

A musical tribute to This Blog Rules

We recently asked Youtuber extraordinaire Will Hyler to create a music video tribute to TBR in his trademark style. He was more than happy to oblige, and, like a true champeen, was willing to do it out of kindness rather than for pay, earning him a liftetime pass to TBR's 2,000 acre theme park, set to open in July of 2012 deep in the heart of an undisclosed location.
