It's been a banner year for "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane. Following the huge success of his first feature film, MacFarlane wowed audiences with a tremendous hosting stint on the season premier of SNL, all of which arguably led to him being tapped as the host of next February's Academy Awards--one of the highest honors in all of showbiz.
As a tribute to all of his recent successes, we've decided to honor the comedic mastermind by paying tribute to the horse that's got him this far. Cutaway gags have always been a huge part of the show's success, so we decided to compile Peter and company's best.
*Note. As you likely know, Family Guy is one of the furthest things from politically correct. No matter your nationality, race, or religion, prepare to be offended.
