Slammed by Simpsons, Family Guy fires back

Simpsons News — Posted 14 Jul, 2005 by Scott

Family GuyThe Simpsons took a shot at fellow Fox cartoon Family Guy. So that series' creator is taking a shot right back.

Seth MacFarlane said an episode of The Simpsons where a Homer Simpson clone was identified as Family Guy dad Peter Griffin was "definitely a slam."

But since the Family Guy team dishes out plenty of its own insults, it should be able to take some, MacFarlane told Blender magazine.

"To me, Peter is much more similar to Ralph Kramden than he is to Homer, right down to his voice," he said, referring to the character from The Honeymooners. "That's what I see. But because The Simpsons and Family Guy are really the only two shows of their kind of television, there'll be comparisons made."

MacFarlane said he was definitely influenced by The Simpsons. "I mean, in its prime, it was one of the greatest comedy shows of all time," he said. "But it's not the show it was. It can't be. You can't do 16 seasons and be consistent."
