    You know, it seems like Transformers wind up being a part of some joke in Family Guy episodes. I've only seen the episode where Optimus Prime makes an appearance ("When You Wish Upon a Weinstein"), and I know that Soundwave makes an appearance in "The Courtship of Stewie's Father," but my brother... who is big on watching Family Guy... said that not too long ago they had an episode where Stewie plots to catch the Tooth Fairy, and he took some of his toys and have them be on guard... and one of the toys that he had was a Starscream figure!!!

    Seriously... has anyone seen that episode? Oh, and has anyone seen any other episodes of which the Transformers make a small appearance... or are those the only episodes?

    My brother thinks it's one of the earlier episodes... don't think it was totally brand new.

    It was a episode from the current season.
    Stasrcream isn't the correct colors.
    But Stewie does refer to Screamer by name.

    Thanks for pointing that out... my brother thought it might have been an older ep.

    Yeah the episode with Starscream is more current, I remember I started yelling right as soon as it came on screen but before Stewie called him by name.

    I was tugging my girlfriends arm and pointing at the screen;
    "It's Machine Wars Starscream! He's not the right colors but it's Machine Wars Starscream!!"

    I love moments like that.

    If it makes you feel better, Brawny... I never watched that episode. I may have gotten into Family Guy recently, but I never have time to actually sit down and watch TV... especially when Family Guy is on Sunday nights and Monday mornings I have classes on campus. So I'm most likely going to have to start collecting the seasons on DVD in order to watch them all... I only got one Family Guy DVD, and it's the Top 5 episodes that the show's creator Seth MacFarland liked.

    I guess I can forgive the colors being off since Takara couldn't even get the colors right for MP Starsceam.

    There was another episode where Peter's and Quagmire's heads flip around like the scene cuts in G1 with it changing from Autobot to Decepticon. They even included the music.

    Really?! OMG, I need to start watching Family Guy more!

    Jeez, do you think that the Family Guy creator, Seth MacFarland, is a fan of Transformers... to be having instances where a TF makes an appearance and all?

    Did anyone see the most recent episode with the Devastator type robot made up of guys in wheelchairs?(The name might be offensive). Some of that action looks like it copied the actual TRANSFORMERS movie trailer,with peter hanging with one hand(like shia),and the scene with Barracade standing over him. Someone on the writing staff is still a TF fan.

    Crippletron was totally Devastator.

    Then the aformentioned Peter/Quagmire head.

    There's several Animie out there that has combining robots......which would exclude Crippletron....seeing there was no actual TF Reference.

    Actually I meant four....the Jewish Prime bit, the Soundwave job bit, peter and quagmire head scene change, and stewie playing with Starscream

    I have a Playboy mag from a couple years ago with a mini-interview with "Peter Griffin". He listed the top ten people who contributed to the person he is today...Optimus Prime was on the list.

    And I jumped around giddily like Deefuzz did when I saw the "Optimus Prime! You're jewish?" and the Peter/ Quagmire head scene changes. I have seen any newer episodes, but I'm looking forward to seeing the Starscream bit when the DVD is released.
